The Struggle is Real

The struggle is real and here I find my self again looking, searching and feeling like a fish out of water at every turn. I hear the voice of the enemy in my head yelling ” what do you think you’re doing? This is out of your league, you’re not very productive and the cost is more than money.” Then I hear the voice of God telling me He’s got this and I’m heading in the right direction and by the way I’m not completely sure of the exact direction but with God at the wheel I know I’m good.

Since Sunday though I have scoured over multiple blogs, reading and studying them trying to find the answer I’m looking for NOW and not weeks from now, not knowing what the answer really is. I’ve consulted two life coaches, all without knowing that’s what they actually did for a living. Both consultations were good and I walked away with more than I had before so I wouldn’t say they were a waste of time at all. I was just trying to get a clear picture in my head of what it is exactly it is they do. My conclusion is you pay someone to be your confidant. Cheerleader and all around dream booster not squasher. I’ve never felt I needed this per say to get me to the next step in life. I’ve tried to surround myself with great friends and kept the decent family members around aka my husband and kids and always leaning on Jesus for what I need. So one of my fifteen new things this year will be praying about a life coach.

My next new thing was my quest tonight that led me to multiple different blogs where I counted words and how many photos and who’s photos they were using. I’ve looked at what each of these people have blogged about and discovered you can blog about anything. I’ve also come to the conclusion that you roughly need any where from 300-500 words and something interesting to post about. I’ve looked into how many times a week to post and for my self if someone posted more than twice a week and over 500 words I became disinterested quit quickly. So I perceive Blogs like the magazine in the waiting room of the doctor’s office. They have many different magazines and with each comes a different set of issues. I think it depends are where you’re at in life as to which magazine you want to read.

Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Psalm 143:10
