A few weeks ago, I talked about being in a space where I had to make some tough decisions (Spring Cleaning). Well, over the past couple weeks, I executed on those things that I needed to do. I think the anticipation of walking away was more daunting than the actual exercise of doing so. I was nervous, my stomach was doing turns, but once the necessary conversations took place, I felt silly for being so nervous. It wasn’t nearly as bad as it seemed it would be. But, then again, when you are doing what you know you need to do, isn’t that usually the outcome? You’re nervous but God has already ordered your steps, so the end result is much better than what you tried to anticipate in your mind?
Here I am, 2 weeks after that, and I feel like a new woman. The decisions I made, albeit tough, were for the purpose of spending more time with my family, taking care of them and our home, and also working on some projects that I’ve had in my heart to do for quite some time (they’re still secret for now, but don’t worry, I’ll tell you about it later). The past few days, I cleaned my house, did ALL of the laundry, and even did a little advance cooking and preparation for the week. I got disciplined about the things I know I have needed to do for a while, for my personal, physical and spiritual health, and I’m excited about what is in store. My mind is feeling clear, and I know that, soon and very soon, some more things will fall into place.
I believe I’m in a new season in my life. I know about some of the things that are in store, because God has been laying them on my heart for a while now. But I don’t know all that is in store, and I’m simply excited about it. I continue to search for the better part of me, and today, I feel like a new woman who is continuing down that path.
To borrow from my brother, Be Real, Be You and Be Easy. Have a great week!
