IT’S TIME TO MOVE…… FORWARD
So many people stay stuck in their comfort zones for so long that they forget they are even there. Stuck in the same old attitude, stuck in their behaviors and stuck in jobs and stuck in the same old way of doing things. If you wake up and don’t feel fire in your bones to go forth and do something you have never done, so that you can have something you have never had. Then it is time to move forward. Remember comfort zones are comfortable because they are familiar not because they are healthy.
What I know for sure is that moving is an arduous task. From pulling tax returns, bank statements, pay stubs just the financial piece alone can be overwhelming. But with anything that is worth it, there is always a process that we must go through. Just ask the caterpillar that goes through pain in order to become a beautiful butterfly, we too have to go through the process in order to move forward. Over the past several months I have kept a journal of 5 lessons that I have learned through the moving process that I would like to share with you over the next five months.
Lesson One: MOVING FORWARD requires us to: CLEAN OUT THE CLUTTER
We clutter our lives with people who are not serving us well. They might be great people, but the saying goes some people are in our lives for a reason, season or lifetime. Oftentimes the season is over, but we hold on to those people knowing that it is time for them to go. Just like those jars in the cabinet that have an expiration date on them from 2019 yet they are still tucked safely away in the cabinet not serving a purpose except that they are taking up space. Some people in our lives are doing the same thing. Taking up space. Do you have people in your life who you know for sure that their season has expired? We also clutter our lives by wasting time. Time that you could be growing and developing; Time that you could be spending with your family; Time that you could be adding value to yourself and others. Everyone, rich, poor, old, young gets 24 hours in a day. How you spend it will either move you forward or backward. Are you cluttering your life by being on social media, watching the news all day long. Stop being distracted by things that won’t help you get to your Divine Destiny.
I love what Dr. Benjamin Mayes said: I have only just a minute, Only sixty seconds in it. Forced upon me, can’t refuse it, did not seek it, didn’t choose it but it’s up to me to use it. I must suffer if I lose it. Give account if I abuse it. Just a tiny little minute, but eternity is in it.
