I don’t know about everyone else’s year but mine has surely kick-off at 110 MPH. From work to mommy hood to personal endeavors, things have been non-stop which is a great thing in my eyes. At times like this I think back on the places I have been, the things I’ve had to endure and the people who I have encountered. This moment in time reminds me that there are not mistakes, just tough lessons.
I can remember where I was at, at this moment, a year ago: preparing to get married but wondering what I was going to do with my career. I was freelancing but just really burnt out by the corporate jobs that I fought tooth and nail to stay afloat in. I wonder if I had a made a mistake by taking X job or maybe I should have went back to school right after college or maybe I should have quite my three jobs in college for an internship. I was drowning myself, questioning the choices that I had made. Did I make a mistake? What was I really doing?
Have you ever been at a point in your life where you wondered if you made a mistake? Maybe it’s accepting your current position or current salary. Maybe it was a relationship that you were blind-sided by. Maybe it was buying a car or a condo that was really out of your range and now some other stuff has come up and you’re struggling.
Well I’m happy to testif-Y and let you know that it’s not a mistake. HE has a plan for you and as long as you do your BEST to take the right steps, he will always protect you. But don’t think that he won’t teach you a lesson for taking certain turns on your path. You have to take those turns as lessons not mistakes; live and learn.
So back to my story, after bogging myself with these thoughts, HE showed me the way through my clouds of doubts. Less than 3 months later not only did my wedding go seamlessly, and my honeymoon went awesome, I accepted a job over my honeymoon and found out that my awesome step-daughter was coming to stay with us. Within 3 months my life changed for the best. So looking back would I say I made mistakes…NO. I’ve just had some powerful, life changing lessons that have made me the woman, Christian, niece, sister, friend, wife, mother, cousin, co-worker, manager, etc…that I am today.
Have a great week Mid-WYFE Fam!
