What Challenges You?!?!? June 13 2017

I'm here to share a story with you about a girl with an insane innate drive for work. 

I can't explain where and how it came about - it just did. It comes natural, it excites me and it pushes me through the hardest days most times.

However what drives me daily can also push me over the edge and exhaust every molecule in my body. Often times I don't realize it until I'm on the brink. Creatives that enjoy work are a force to be reckoned with...but at the same time can be left depleted.

What challenges me? Slowing down. Savoring the moment. Intentional reset days where time is spent looking at little faces that are growing far too quick. Where time well spent with my husband fuels me. As much as I hate to admit this - those moments challenge me.


But, when all is said and done those are the very moments that get me through the overwhelm and I can continue to do.

I am blessed to have a life where hitting the reset button can happen unbeknownst to me. God knows what I need, when I need it and even during days, weeks, months where the journey seems unclear He always discloses His purpose - in His time.

I learned to stop questioning the process and instead allowed Him to work through me however He sees fit. Ultimately, at the end of the day when it is all said and done and the day is over and I can reflect - He leads me to green pastures.  Even when those pastures are full of ugly cries, explosive diapers and sassy 10 year olds. 

What challenges you? What area of your life do you find could use a little extra attention?

Leave me a comment, I would love to know what areas of your life are most challenged at.
