Pack For Where You Are Going

Last SuitcasesWhen I packed my apartment the last time I moved, I knew there would be things I would not need where I was going.  Things like a sofa, TV, a bed frame were just going to be things I would need to store, so I decided they needed a new home.

I knew where I was going, I wouldn’t need those things. So I made arrangements to get rid of them.  After all, I couldn’t have those things cluttering up my new space.

Sometimes when you are making changes in your life, God gives you the opportunity to let go of some things you don’t need.  Yet He also teaches you to pack for where you ARE going.

I have learned some new things over the last six months. It has been challenging. It has been fun. It has been a process.

Over the next couple of months, I will launch a new magazine which I am excited about. I will tell you more about it over the next couple of weeks and get your input on some of the features of the magazine.  I want to share information in this project that changes your life.

In the meantime, I will be making sure to pack the things I need to make the project work. I will be sure to get rid of things that will hinder it. I will try to spend more time loving what I am doing instead of worrying about it.

Over the next couple of weeks, take a look at what you are doing. Make sure you are doing something you love. Make sure that it inspires you and drives toward your passion.  And make sure you pack all the things you need to make it successful.

Peace and Hair Grease.

Part of Moving To Something New

is leaving something behind. I think about the things I am going to miss, like pulling up to the Sonic drive-thru or working the camera at church. These things have become part of who I am, and the good news is God is still writing that story.  This gives Him the right to edit.

I think about the people I won’t see every day and the fact that some of you are moving out of my life for good. We assume we have an eternity with each other. We don’t so we should make the most of the time we do have.

I have learned that God isn’t going to fill up something that is already full. So. He takes things away

Moments like this give me the opportunity to really value the people and activities which make an impact in my life. Some of these things will be hard to let go of, but I look forward to how they are replaced. And one of the really cool things about God is He always sends little snippets of what I can expect.

As I am on my way to the table to meet a good friend today for lunch, I ran into someone else.   This woman is on my A List of people. Here daughter Amy is one of the biggest cheerleaders in my life. God sent Barbara Love by today to give me a hug and encouragement.  It was so sweet running into her today. God keeps confirming those strong BSF foundations in my life.

Today I got to have lunch with a person who was my hero in college. I remember watching her as an undergrad and thinking I want to be like her when I grow up.  And the cool thing about today is we spent the time talking about the future instead of reminiscing about the past. We acknowledged the challenges that are ahead of us but see more of the adventure that is to come.

We talked about the skills we have picked up over the last couple of decades and how we can use them more wisely.  We knew the world had changed drastically since we were in college.  We discussed how we as older women find ourselves in a place where we have a lot of knowledge but need to create new paths to distribute it. We encouraged each other.

Woman on ladder

God knew who I needed to meet with before I started this new journey and He knew what would be the outcome.  When a sister is on her way up the ladder, she has to stop and take inventory of where she is.  Knowing where I am, helps me know what I need to let go of, and what I need to keep.

 

For One Reason

you go into a business but figure out later that something different was planned.  Artist go into entertainment to entertain people, but later see that their messages impact peoples lives. Artist like Sammy Davis Jr have carved out legacies that impact generations.  They did more than entertained.  They asked the questions we all needed to ask.
