Regardless of how we start. The intention, the vision, the goal… it is so hard not to get lost in the process.
The plan can initially start with the purest desire. That one thing that gives us reason to get up in the morning.
But then, before we know it, we find ourselves half-heartedly in something that faintly resembles bits and pieces of our initial purpose, but we’ve wandered of track entirely actually. To the point where it’s not life giving at all, but sucking every ounce of life out of us.
How did we get to this place?!
Perhaps it’s the pressure of what we feel it should look like. Social media. Influences of those with other intentions.
Although key, the roots are often hardest to dig up.
So how do we get back on track then?!
The heart. The answer is always the heart. That’s where it all started and that’s where we need to come back to.
The desires of our heart, when aligned (in my case, with Jesus), is where it’s all at.
When we live and work out of a heart aligned with the bigger picture. The real picture. The picture that gives your heart joy, peace and keeps it breathing. That’s where it’s at.
It’s so easy to lose but SO BEAUTIFUL to live out of.
The tension, the anxiety, the stress, the fear, the doubt, the pressure. Oh the frickin’ pressure! Who to be, what to do, what to wear, what to post.
What is that?! No place for any of us to live out of.
I want easy breathing. I want deep, deep joy. I want peace. Oh, how I want peace.
I’m bringing it back to what really matters. The aligned desires of my heart. To live whole. To live full.
Does it align with the desires of my heart? Yes, then hold on. No, then let it go.
Are you lost in something that is sucking the life out of you? Bring it back to the desires of your heart!
Until next time,
P.S *Yes I know our heart desires are not always pure. Hence the key word *aligned*
