This morning as I was getting ready for work this Bible verse came to mind:
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up - Galatians 6:9
I love my life for the most part, but in all honesty some days if I focused on the mammoth task list ahead of me, I seriously would not get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes doing good seems like the biggest chore in the world and you just want to say; “forget it!” and go back to bed.
So I do three things at times like these:
I tackle my day in manageable chunks. I write down exactly what I have to do - I then do my best to focus entirely on one task at a time – sometimes it’s the very act of trying to hold so much info in your head at once that is most stressful. Our brains can only actually hold a few thoughts at a time before dropping balls.
2. Visualise the big picture:
I remind myself that the little choices I make today, will lead to a great future for me and my family tomorrow. In fact I actually have a dream book with pictures and written descriptions of the life I aspire to have and I remind myself of the achievements that have already been made.
3. I let go and let God:
We can only do what we can do and often the pressure we put on ourselves far out ways what others put on us. So I remind myself that if I do my best, God will do the rest.
I believe it’s so important to have clear goals and a strong sense of direction, in essence ‘A purpose driven life’ – purpose will propel you.
