In life we are judged by our choices and decisions. Society often influences our decisions through social media, television and sometimes even our peers. Because we are living in such a tech savvy age, there is this fake time clock that exist at a certain age, usually age 30 for most that one should make this salary, be successful and have your life together. You can sometimes feel this intangible pressure to race to beat the clock. #ticktick The closer I get to 30, I realize that I don’t have to live up to anyone’s expectations for me and my life. I’m okay if I still have questions about life, want to make a career change and I still have goals that I haven’t completed. I’m still asking myself questions like, what do you want to be when you grow up? lol
I was initially that girl that had my 10 year plan…dream job by the age, married by this age and a child a year later. lol I believe the popular saying goes, it to tell God your plans and he will laugh. I look back on some past experiences and I’m grateful that he blocked it. Yasssssss. lol God designed us all to be uniquely special and gifted in our own way. He cares about each and everyone us to and predestined our future. Like…God even cares enough to want to know the finite detail about us like the number of hairs on our head. #thatscray So with that being said, I realize and sometimes have to remind myself that I don’t have to rush against some imaginary clock that doesn’t exist. If God wanted us to all be the same, he would have designed us this way, but he didn’t boo, so you are good. What may look like success for you, should be different for someone else. Keep making your personal goals, but ensure they are aligned with God’s plans for your life. I’m a planner by nature and live for a calendar invite for tacos, tea and wine. ???? But, sometimes my pretty little calendar is interrupted. #aintnobodygottimeforthat lol
God’s timing is fairly different from my timing and I am learning to stop and see what he is trying to say to me vs. continuously listening to what I am trying to say and tell myself. I am in the process of taking the limits off myself. There isn’t a life rule that you can only have one career in a lifetime, you can have many careers anything you choose. Don’t let anyone put a period on your dreams, where God has only added a comma! Do you boo, as long as you are living and breathing and have active limbs you still have time.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11
