What are you wishing for?

What are you wishing for? Or, heck, what are you working and striving for? 

For me, I spent years focused on making the top rank in my company and that 6 figure rank. Truth: The money came before the title but it still wasn’t even enough for me. I needed the status of being the top. 

And, then I did it. I made it to the top rank. And, well, it wasn’t quite as glamorous as I thought it would be. 

Honestly, I’m not sure what I was thinking in the first place. I think I was so busy hustling and working for it that I hadn’t even taken the time to consider why I felt so strongly that it was needed.

Another truth bomb: Once I arrived, I seriously considered quitting. I was burnt out, overwhelmed, and exhausted from something that I thought I wanted to realize that it wasn’t any different than what I was doing. 

I think there is this lie that the enemy whispers to us ever so subtly that makes us think we will eventually get to a point of ‘arriving’. Ummmm, until I go home to heaven, I don’t think that is going to happen. 

I saw something quoted on Instagram the other day by one of my favorite authors, Jennie Allen. She said: “When you wish to be somewhere God hasn’t put you-you miss out on where He has you.” 

I am a huge proponent of goals. Goals are good and absolutely necessary. But, we have to be careful to not get so caught up in chasing the end that we forget where our feet are and our main priorities.

If you need help finding the balance to enjoy the season you are currently in, we should talk. My DMS are always open. XO, Melissa
