It was my birthday weekend this week. So what did I choose to do. Pamper myself of course. I relaxed and shopped my heart out. I hung out with great friends and had a wonderful time. Saturday, I hung out with my sister Delaina and we were discussing her YouTube career. Yes y’all, Delaina will have a YouTube channel soon. So please support and subscribe to her at Ok_Delaina. Hr YouTube channel will feature inspirational posts and just everything Delaina. Check her out and show my sister in Christ some love.
During our normal fellowship sessions, we were talking about motivation and the freedom to be ourselves in this journey we call life. Delaina then revealed to me that she was at one point a blogger as well. One post was made to be exact, but a blogger nonetheless. I read her post and it was so bold and honest that it made me reevaluate myself as a blogger. I did immense research before I started my blog, and I followed the directions that the multitude of other bloggers did. If it worked for them, then surely it would work for me. I have come to realize that is not always the case. In a previous post, Who called me to blogging?, I wrote that this blog was my outlet to freely express myself. But I haven’t truly expressed myself.
I followed the steps of other bloggers, using certain headings and phrases so more people would be intrigued to read my posts. I have come to learn that is not the reason that God pushed me to start blogging. In the process of following others, I have hindered myself. There are a multitude of things that I desire to happen in my life. I want to be the CEO of a nonprofit organization. I want to write children’s’ books someday and make lotions and body butters. Opportunities present themselves, but I do not always rise to the occasion. No more.
Many times there is always a reason to never start something. I’ll start tomorrow. I’ll start next week. Next month. Next semester. It is always a “next” time, but never a “right now” time. I cannot let that go on any longer. Philippians 4:19 “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” It does not say God can meet all your needs. Scripture states God WILL meet all your needs. It’s that simple. I have hindered myself and I am now declaring my time to start now…
