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.
