Life

Two weeks in…

Friends, change is hard. Well, not always. Sometimes it’s as easy as turning around and going in the opposite direction. But most of the time, it involves going against our long-ingrained habits or mindsets, and chipping away at them one…painstaking…blow at a time. And yes, that is hard.

It’s January 18th, and I don’t feel like I’ve even begun to scratch the surface of what I want to do or change in my life and for my family.

I’ve been looking downwind, avoiding the conflict, avoiding the storm, hoping that if I close my eyes and face the other way, it will go away.

Apparently, it doesn’t work that way, because whenever I open my eyes again, I see the chaos, and I feel overwhelmed. I’ve let the storm swallow me up.

This week, I have just one thing that I’m going to start off doing differently: I will not cower from the wind; I will not run fearfully away from it. I will face it and let it breathe new energy into me.
