26 Sep Enjoy the Hustle
I love achieving goals and dreams. It is an incredible feeling that you never forget. You just want more of it. Who doesn’t?
But I have found in myself that my attitude shifts like a boat on a restless sea sailing to achieve that goal or dream I have in mind. I am hopeful. I am despairing. I am determined. I am on the verge of giving up. I am peaceful. I am frustrated. And probably on the top of that list in bold letters should be written I AM IMPATIENT.
No matter what emotion I am feeling, impatience colours them all. It is like I subconsciously think that if that dream or goal is not achieved right this moment it dwindles my chances, not just a little but significantly, of that dream or goal ever coming to fruition. (I kind of only just acknowledged that thought pattern in myself just then.)
I am choosing to say no. To call out the untruth that likes to play havoc with my head if I allow it.
I am choosing to have hope and anticipation for the day those goals and dreams come true.
I am choosing today and every day to fall in love with the hustle.
For the experience of working towards a dream or goal, I want to challenge myself to enjoy it. I want to make happiness a priority in the space of ‘I am getting there’. I want to look back and see how much happiness I had whilst achieving not just when I have achieved.
So what does enjoying the hustle look like? I am not sure. For someone who is a planner that is tough. But let’s see it as an adventure.
Numbers 6:24 -26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.”
Love to you,
