Last week my daughter and I were having a discussion about perfection. She was frustrated with me about many different things which is to expected for a 13 year old. but she threw out something about me having a PERFECT life. She started to list all the things she thought that made me “perfect”. It had me pondering. She asked: do you love your life? I DO UNEQUIVOCALLY. So in her mind that made it perfect.
BUT NONE OF US ARE PERFECT!
This did have me reflect on what was she trying to say behind her words.
Everything she listed off were things I am passionate about: this blog, my oils business, my transformation coaching and presentations, and my religious ed class.
Now my daughters primary love language is gifts….but her secondary is TIME! She says she likes being independent….she says she likes doing things on her own….she says she likes doing most of her studies without me. But what teen wants to admit they need or even want their parents to be involved or there. To them that is a sign of weakness.
What conclusion have I come to?
Well with some BLACK PEPPER and IN-TUNE Essential Oil on my forehead to unmask and to focus my confusion….to create some clarity for me…..I realized…..
I had to own the realization that I have been spending more time with my blog, oils business, and transformation opportunities, than I should be.
I MUST be willing to only blog when I can…..I MUST fine tune what are the ESSENTIALS of life right now….HOW MUCH TIME DO I REALLY NEED TO BE ON FACEBOOK AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIAS for my business, for my platform, for my message!?
I MUST be willing to remember WHO DO I NEED TO REALLY BE CONNECTING WITH FIRST AND FOREMOST AFTER GOD!? My FAMILY!!!
So maybe that means I do only a MEME …..or a YouTube blurp….or a moment to just say hello here……OR MAYBE it means I don’t worry about any of it and just let life happen! What if I say….”Hmm I will check facebook at 3pm for 30 minutes and that’s it!”
What I do know is at the end of the day NOTHING matters more to me than FAMILY! And I WILL NOT sacrifice their needs, wants, happiness, for my pursuits! Because when I live in GOD’S WILL then my needs, wants, and joy WILL COME….WILL BE FULFILLED!
What do you need to focus or refocus on!? To get clear about again!? Sit with this…..pray about it….write about it…..and connect with me about it!
Many blessings and hugs dear followers….family…friends….
