I am in a stage of transition in my life. Things are going well. I am really excited about the direction of my life. It has taken intention, focus and surrender to get to where I am now. I am being blessed with opportunities, I am growing and learning to be patient with myself and others, I have connected with wonderful people. My life took an unexpected turn this season, starting off really rocky. I was in a bad car accident, where my car was totaled and I got injured. I experienced the loss of friends, transitioned into a new position and really just pushed through a lot of disappointment and what seemed like rejection. I can honestly say that God was redirecting my steps the whole time. In this moment, I want you to know that if you are afraid that you can’t balance it all, you are not alone. I struggle with this myself, and just know that you don’t have to bite off more than you can chew. It all starts with saying no when you need to and as often as you need to. It also starts with not feeling guilty for choosing to do things that make you happy. It is okay to be busy. It is okay to say yes to things someone else may say no to. Act with wisdom and know that whatever you do is your personal choice. Balancing it all, is not about others, it is about what you need to be your best self. Sometimes that is taking a day to take care of yourself, to replenish and begin again when your cup is running over.
