Our minds are clouded by money and other stresses, or you see other people living the life you want to live. It is hard especially when you look at other people with financial freedom, locational freedom and just freedom in general…then there is you….struggling to find or maintain a job, you have dreams that sometimes feel hard to obtain, bills and debt.
It seems like when can you ever catch a break?
Everything else but the right thing is on our mind, so we need to shift focus. I’m not saying quit your day job or anything like that. All I am saying is put your relationship with God before anything. It’s hard for me too. Lately, I’ve been feeling so much pressure around me to start something. I have so many projects that are hard to finish because I acted out of stress. I don’t even enjoy working on my projects anymore. The pressure has been useful in some ways because I have been more productive, but I am doing this because I want what others have. There isn’t anything wrong with being productive but be conscious of why you are productive. Don’t just copy others, be you. Be authentic. Stop trying so hard and stop stressing out over stuff that doesn’t even really matter. It is all temporary. Wait on God and put your spiritual health/ mental health first, everything that is supposed to come will come. Here is how you will do it:
“Cooperating with the will of God and not chasing Dreams”- Tim Storey
Servitude, Holiness and Seeking first the kingdom of God actively instead of chasing after things of this Earth
Go to therapy if you need to
Get your mental health together.
If you don’t have time for anything or you, don’t have the money to do the things that will help you live your best life (such as therapy or even enjoy life) then think of downsizing or pick up a side hustle.
Put your spiritual health and yourself first…everything else will fall in line.
