What do you do when everything in your current day-to-day is not what you planned for your future. When you look at your surroundings and start to ask yourself the question “Who am I?”
To share a little bit about my current day-to-day, I moved back to my parents’ house a couple of years ago from my beloved city that I lived in for over half my life. I let go of my favorite coffee shops that inspired these blog posts, my favorite authentic restaurants in the city that fed my soul, and the beautiful shops and creative spots of the city that told my story through one of the most life-giving parts of this blog to me “the photoshoots”. I will share more about this in a future post so stay tuned.
When I originally moved back to the burbs, I was so excited about the ability to be able to work on MGL full-time. After working on an MBA during the evenings and weekends while working 60-70 hours a week at my day job. I continued with this crazy work schedule switching out the MBA program with MGL for another 3 years. I felt the pressure to create a successful business after receiving my degree in entrepreneurship in 2015. I knew I had to concentrate on the business full time to be able to move in the direction God was calling me to. So finding the solution to move back to my parents’ house to allow me to do so while sacrificing my lifestyle at the time was the pivot in the right direction.
When I first made the move I told myself it is only for a few years, just until I can get the business off the ground. But then something strange started happening, my surroundings started to bother me. Tremendously. I completely underestimated how attached I was to my old lifestyle. I had never been so close to God, each day, I needed him to lift the burden from me. I was living a COVID lifestyle long before COVID hit in March of this year. With a limited bank account, I wasn’t able to escape back to my old lifestyle. I agreed with God on this part of his plan because I thought this way I wouldn’t get distracted with my time & money which would allow me to be completely focused on the business. I went to a friend’s birthday party a few months back and cried so hard when I was back in the city. I missed my old self.
One year turned into two years and I can’t believe I am in my third year and I am nowhere near where I thought I would be at this time. I found myself looking up at God in anger saying I would have never walked in this direction you led me if I had known how much it would cost me. My day-to-day is so different than it used to be. I use to walk the streets of the city in the cutest new season’s looks, sipping on my favorite Ipsento latte, going to the spa for a self-care day to get inspired for my next blog post/photoshoot. Now the highlight of my week is getting out of the house to grab my groceries. Who am I?
If your day-to-day life is not what you expected it would be and you are starting to doubt that you heard God correctly when He led you here. Take a moment to let the words of this song soak over your spirit. I want you to know that you are exactly where you need to be and everything is going to be alright. ☺️❤️
This song pierced my heart with an arrow of God’s love and it resulted in an open door of my heart to receive clarity. I can’t wait to share with you what God revealed next.
