When we go on vacation, its planned out from the time we leave til the time we return. It starts off as conversations with spouses, family, and friends trying to choose a destination. Next we find a hotel, resort, or house to rent for the stay and book it. Reservations and deposits are put down. Flights are booked. Overtime we begin making payments, saving money, and of course putting in vacation time at work. As the vacation time nears we go on a diet, plan daily outfits, make sure we have those bikinis loaded, mani, pedis, hair done, tanned, and by this time mentally we are already on vacay.
But do we have that same vision for our life?
Well guess what, we can plan our life the same way. So often we have dreams, aspirations, goals, and visions for ourselves that seem so far fetched that we think they are unattainable. Self Care IS SETTING PERSONAL GOALS Whatever you envision for your life you can achieve. Just like that vacation that costs thousands of dollars that you have to plan for in advance. We can create a plan for our life and future.
What do you want? Where do you see yourself living? Where do you see yourself working? What business you want to start? Where do you want to raise your family? Those are visions that we have for ourselves. Because our visions may seem so out of reach we push the back. But what God places in us never goes away. If your dreams or vision scares you, then you ought to go chase them.
Begin planning your life vision with what you already have. With each small step towards our goal, it gets us closer. Just like you have a picture in mind of what you want your outfit to look like, you have that same picture of your life. Piece by piece put that photo together. As we do when we plan a vacation, we have to prepare for the “what if’s “. All that means is we have to be prepared for a flight with a stop and layover, then we can keep going .
Your’re tougher, stronger, wiser, and more courageous than you think!!!
Be you so you can be free.
