I don’t know about you but July to me is a month of celebration. It seems that people have caught the summer bug and are spending more time outside in the sunshine enjoying life. I love this time of year!
I have to share an experience I had this week while I was driving home from work. I was waiting to turn at an intersection and I looked over at a pedestrian talking on his phone. I could tell that he was trying to communicate his location with whom ever he was talking to. I assumed that he was waiting to be picked up. I then look ahead of this gentleman about 10 feet. The car that he was trying to give directions to was literally seconds away from him. The driver in the car was honking and waving at this guy and for some reason they were not able to communicate that they were already just so close to one another.
I thought a lot about this experience. I could see the frustration of both of the individuals involved and yet- they were just so close to connecting. I oftentimes wonder about this in our own life! We are so close to connecting , understanding a new job, or a relationship that needs a little work. I also wondered about our dreams and goals. We sometimes get so close to what we want to accomplish, but we stop- when just steps away is what we want….
My challenge for you this month is – to STOP for a moment – I know that is hard in July; that’s why I chose this challenge this month. 🙂 Stop and look at where you are, and where you want to be. Take time for you to see the map ahead and where you want to go. Its mid year – 2018 is half over (can you believe it??) We have 6 months left to make the difference we want to make. Here are a few questions to spark some THOUGHTS:
- What do you want to accomplish in the next 6 months? (ex. 3k in a savings, decrease my BMI by 3%, write 16 blog posts)
- What is it going to take to accomplish these things? (Putting 500 in savings a month, working out and tracking eating daily, quiet moments for writing daily).
- ASK FOR GUIDANCE – AND KEEP COMUNICATION OPEN WITH SOURCE TO ACCOMPLISH – this one I am so passionate about because I see it daily in my life. My way of thinking is adjusted so many times when I allow God to see the whole picture and guide me in my decisions. I feel like He is watching our lives just as I was watching the gentleman communicating to the driver last week. He sees the whole picture. Allow your higher self to connect with source and lead you to accomplish the goals. I promise you the path may look a little different but it will turn out better.
Let me know what you have chosen to look at for the next 6 months! I would love to hear about it and support you along the way. You can email me directly at [email protected]
