Stop searching for that one idea that’ll make you successful. There are different ways to get to your goal; there isn’t just one way. Think about Billionaires; they don’t have one source of income, there are multiple streams of income. Billionaires continue to grow and evolve, so should we. Again, stop putting all of your hopes on one project.
Even if it’s only one idea that is successful, it is ok. Having one victory does not mean stop working at your craft. If your victory brings in income, that means less stress and more time to work on what you love.
It is unnecessary to wear yourself out about one idea. Let thoughts come to you. It is in those quiet moments when ideas will come to you. They are so subtle that you won’t even notice it. Stop and have a moment of clarity. Relax. The thoughts that you want to focus on are re-occurring, they are strong passions, it’ll occur when you are close to your spiritual source.
Your “Genius” will help you map out a plan for your next project, all you need to do is free yourself. We tend to treat ourselves like machines but we aren’t machines, and our ideas aren’t ours to claim (especially the good ones). Acknowledge your source.
Once we stop tiring ourselves by trying to find the next big thing, then we will be able to progress on our creative paths. Let the genius craft you, don’t craft the Genius.
6 Life Changing lessons I have learned from the Armor of God
Pick One Thing and Stick To IT
You need to check in with yourself. It is vital for your mental health and well-being. Day in and Day Out you have other people’s voices in your head that your voice is drowned out. Take time for yourself. Ask yourself:
What is true?
Are you letting my feelings make decisions for me?
Are you working on a project you truly desire to work on?
Are you entertaining negative energy?
What is the bigger picture?
Are you living for just the temporary moment and not the bigger picture?
Are you taking your goals piece by piece or are you stressing yourself out by trying to do everything at once?
Let me know if you take time to reflect and what are some tips you have for wellbeing!
Something I wanted to Share with you
Pursuing Serenity (Your Top Priority)
Self-Care and Love (Beyond Pampering)
As someone who lives with mental illness, my biggest desires are peace and joy. It is hard trying to obtain it when you are in constant battle with your mind.
I always say that I want to be living and not surviving but I never knew what living was. I always thought living was doing what everyone seems to do nowadays: find financial freedom and travel. I always knew that there was more to life than that (I still want to travel). I caught glimpses of what actual living was through podcasts and sermons.
The living is taking life in bits with patience. We are always doing something. I take great pride in being a busybody but, it feels better to simplify life. My mother said it best: take life second by second, minute by minute and day by day. We tend to forget to take it all in slowly and through pieces. It is easy because we are fed so much information at once. There is easy access to everyone and less privacy.
I know I haven’t posted anything for a while and that is because I was lying to myself. I started comparing myself to others and pressuring myself again. I felt like I had nothing to offer to the word. I was doing good “just doing it” and kicking in the mental walls and then all of that came to a halt. I started saying I need to stop and read more or I need to have a good story or I wasn’t feeling it.
I was trying to wait until all my ducks were in a row. That has always been my problem. I like to wait. I dismiss the things I want to do or have a passion for because of how I judge myself. I always say I’m not together or I am not fit but none of that matters. Who am I to say that I am not fit. Sometimes you have to just take that leap and learn as you go, and surprisingly, that is the way that I love to learn.
So stop waiting and just do it!
Don’t let your emotions control you.
It is easy to let your emotions control you especially when you are depressed. You have to look at the situation as something that’s temporary. You also have to remember what you are working towards, isn’t temporary. You can’t let a short-term feeling affect your long-term success.
It’s hard to not have it together when you feel upset. Personally, I procrastinate out of emotions. I get so anxious or depressed that I take breaks. I look at others and compare myself to them. I pressure myself and cage up my potential. I want to quit. A lot of negative events happening at one time and I feel like I can’t handle them. But, I thought to myself, I enjoy writing. I want to share this with you because I understand what it is like to let emotions get the best of you. I want to let you know that you shouldn’t sabotage your future for momentary satisfaction. You got this! You are special and you deserve greatness. 🙂
To begin this blog post….the purpose of this blog is to encourage others and to have a dialogue of some of the challenges with walking in the Christian Faith and just life in general. It has always been in my heart to do something like this to help those who feel like they are stuck or just need some help. Later on, I do plan on doing blog posts on each featured resource.
- Healing Your Past and Releasing Your Future by Catherine Cahill Fabiano and Frank P. Fabiano
-I am currently reading this book but it makes me think a lot about past events or thoughts that I struggle to let go of.

-Reading this book has helped me when taking my first steps towards building a relationship with Christ. I encourage that everyone reads 1st John thoroughly and retain that information.
