We can read a million things that can help us be happy, peaceful, and content but just reading them won’t change a thing. We can go to conferences and workshops on how to enrich our lives but just listening will not make it happen. We can wish that we could do this or to have that but just wishing won’t make it happen. We have to take action if we want anything to happen. We have to use the tools that are given to us in order to build a better tomorrow. We have to do our work.
I am the queen of procreation. I will know of things that I need to do to get where I want to be but I will put it off and put it off, saying that I will do it tomorrow. But then tomorrow comes and I say that I will do it the next day. And then the next day I say the same thing, all while I am beating myself up for not having what I want to have because I’m not doing what i need to do. I will sit around and think about what i need to do to be happier and more peaceful but i don’t do it. Then i think about how crazy it is that i know what will help me a great deal but i choose to not do it. I come up with excuses and reasons to try to make myself feel better but the truth is that I am choosing to not do what I can do.
It took a long time for me to face my truth because nobody wants to admit that they are the cause of their mess. But it was the truth and I had to admit it before I would ever be able to change it. I had to admit that procrastinated, that I was lazy at times, that I was making bad choices and causing my own misery, and that nobody can do my work for me. I had to admit that it was my own fault. Ha!… try swallowing that bitter pill. I did not like having to face that truth but it was the truth!
All the praying in the world was not going to change the fact that I had to do my own work. All the wishing and wanting was not going to make it happen. The only thing that was going to help me was for me to make the choice to do my work. I had to do what I knew I should be doing even when I didn’t feel like it or if I was afraid to do it. I had to make the choice of doing what was best for me in the long run.
Once I had my truth meeting with myself I did have a weight lifted off of me. There was no longer the weight of reasoning and excuses. There was a sense of freedom from shame and guilt. And I also had a change in my mindset. I made the decision to make choices that were in my best interest for my future being. With each best choice came the desire to want to choose the best choice more and more. I was finally seeing benefits from my actions. I was applying myself to better myself. I was the reason that I was finally starting to receive all that Jesus wanted to give me instead of the reason that I wasn’t receiving it.
When we get aligned with God and follow the spirits guidance instead of ourself we will have what we are lacking in life and within ourselves. Once we do our work our lives will be built up just as we wish for. Decide today to choose to do what you know you need to do now so that you will be complete and satisfied later on.
