In the Christy Cain book of life, today would have been what we call a HARD DAY.
A difficult day.
A challenging day.
A unsettled day.
A restless day.
A what the hell am I doing with my life day.
A completely human day.
It's so easy to get sucked into social media and think that everyone has it together all of the time. We put our best out there for others to see, yet somehow don't realize that we are seeing their highlight reels as well. So, in the sphere of authenticity, here ya go:
I've cried (at least) once every single day this week. I've questioned my capabilities. I've wondered about my worthiness. I've critiqued my work ethic. I've complained about my circumstances. I've added yet another lap to the mountains I've been circling for a while now, wondering why they won't move.
And just when I'm about to call it a day, crawl into bed, feeling sorry for myself, I see a card that came in the mail. One that I wrote to myself at a Advocare ladies event back in the spring. What does it say? Everything I needed to hear.... "Its time to take your business to the next level. You're made to do this. Be real. Be authentic. Lead people well. You're called to leadership. Leave people better than you found them. It's time to level up"
Months ago, Jesus knew that this card would arrive at exactly the right time. With exactly the right words. In exactly the right circumstances. He knew how I would be feeling at 8pm on Sunday July 23, 2017. He knew what I would need to be reminded of and He planned ahead for this moment.
I've said it once and I'll say it until it becomes the anthem of my life-- no matter where you are, know this: it is no surprise to God. He goes before us. He walks beside us and He makes the crooked places straight. Even at the end of weeks that are marked my frustration and tears, He has a gentle way of saying.... "I know where you've been, I know where you are, I know where you're going. I see you. I hear you. Trust me. It's time." #CueMoreTears

And then this is how the day ends.

Life is about living. BEING REAL. Being vulnerable. Being open. Living your life on your terms.

If you're not doing that, you're not truly living.
If you're not living your life with and THROUGH passion, you're not thriving.
Today I had to make the conscious choice to be open and honest with myself and my husband. Admit where I needed help (And where it might be beneficial to hire help- aka business needs for a growing business!). I make my dreams a reality every day. I go for them. No I SPRINT towards them. But that doesn't mean I'm not human and need to check in with how I'm feeling and acknowledge what's going on inside.
Don't ignore your call. Don't ignore your heart. Don't ever forget that you are meant for amazing, life-changing WORLD-changing things.
You are a dreamer. Your dreams are not a fantasy. They are reality just waiting to happen. .
