Spring A TIme for New Beginnings, Further Growth and A Fresh Outlook

Saturday, March 02, 2013

After being overwhelmed from challenges I took a break from joining any teams. I found my way back to the 5% challenge which was the first challenge i ever took part in when I found Sparks many blue moons ago.

Its time to lay a few things aside in my life weight, never feeling as if I'm enough, constant nagging of loneliness even when I'm in a room full of people. I know the Lord is always with me and His plan for my life is better than I can ever dream or hope for. Even though I may not see the good when people walk out of my life I have to trust that it is for my good. So I'm looking forward to new beginnings, further growth and a fresh outlook in life

The new habit I plan to form is to be the source of encouragement to myself that I am to everyone else in life. I will sow into my own life vs giving it all away and having nothing left for me

    This is a great habit to form, and sounds like one you need to do to start loving yourself. As part of your implementation, you should make taking 30 minutes or more for yourself everyday, and n this should not include your exercise.

    Make it something that you enjoy that you rarely get to do, something that makes your soul sing, or something you would consider "just plain fun!". You are right. If you are constantly running your love tank empty each day for others, there is nothing left in it for you when you need it. emoticon emoticon emoticon !

    It's so important to take time for ourselves. Usually we put everyone else first so think of yourself!

    Absolutely love the new habit you are forming this spring. I am currently in another challenge as well where the team members often refer to "being kind to the person in the mirror". I have to admit that that phrase has really impacted me because it was then that like you I started to realize how easy it is for me to give it away to others and leave none for myself.
    May our Lord bless you as you discover more and more of who He made you to be.

    Sometimes taking a break brings you back with a fresh perspective on things. We often need that time to regroup.

    It is hard to think about being our own cheer leader. It is something we should do I think too. I think we can only be better for it .
