Sometimes I want things, but I’m not willing to do what it takes to get it. So I settled and then felt terrible because I wanted more.
Every time I accept less than what I desire, I create pain in my life. While it may not appear at first or be obvious, it’s there. And in my attempt to soothe the pain, I created even more.
I overeat, scroll too long, and try my very best to ignore the desires of my heart.
Sometimes I do this if the goal seems too big. If I have a lot of work to do, I get overwhelmed and ignore it all. But if I start and make a little progress, it motivates me to do more.
When I decide to do whatever it takes, I search for solutions instead of excuses. I eliminate a lot of my reasons by taking action every day.
If I decide to write every day regardless of my circumstances, I have removed the option to quit or not do it. Therefore, I find the time instead of believing I don’t have it.
I decided wholeheartedly on vacation that I WILL DO whatever it takes to achieve my goals and get the desires of my heart. I’m so tired of excuses. I’m so tired of living at ease because I’m afraid to feel some discomfort. I’m sick and tired of settling for less than what the Lord wants to give me.
God has many incredible blessings for me just outside my comfort zone. I’m ready to get them. I’m ready to take a leap of faith and trust God to see me through it all.
