The challenge provides daily prompts to help inspire and encourage you to dig deeper and overcome any self-imposed doubts or restrictions. Since it’s my birthday month (and b/c I just LOVE me some G.G.) – I’ve decided to participate and share all my many layers with my Queen in the Shadows family.
I started yesterday, but am just now transcribing my journal notes to this here blog 🙂 I hope my layers can inspire you to enter into your own joy and purpose!
DAY 1: START. STOP. CONTINUE
START: I want to start making the most out of each day. Occasionally, I allow my responsibilities to overwhelm me and attempt to talk myself out of giving my all. I want to appreciate each stage and moment of my life and revel in the baby steps I must take to realize my full potential. If I want to publish a book, then I have to START taking the necessary action to bring this dream to fruition. WRITE, WRITE, WRITE!!!
STOP: The area of my life that just BEGS for boundaries is my thought life. I have come to a place where I can identify when my thoughts are getting away from where they should be. Now is the time where I need to STOP any negative energy in its tracks before it has the opportunity to delay where God is trying to take me.
CONTINUE: I want to continue loving ME! I love that I have finally come to a place where I accept and appreciate what I have to offer to the world. When old habits try to return into the sanctuary of my present, it feels good to say NO – I am a new woman and the needs of my heart comes first. To ensure that I keep myself sane and healthy, I just have to keep reminding myself who I’m doing it for – my daughter! I must be the best me possible, not only for myself, but for her.
Until Next Time
