Happpy Monday, beautiful people.
It's not even 10 o'clock and this morning feels like it's been a bajillion years long. Not mad about it!!
Anyways, I just wanted to jump on here real quick before I get to work for the day and share what God's been laying on my heart this morning.
Wherever you're at today, work, at home with your kids, school, wherever.. know that where you are is where you're meant to be. We each have our own gifts and talents that we've been blessed with, and sometimes (I know I do at least) we struggle with trying to be everything to everybody.
Last week I attended a seminar on branding and it can relate to this as well. If you put your marketing dollars in ten different things, then it spreads it out thin. If you put them in a few buckets and concentrate on making those the best that you can, then it will be more effective.
The same way we can sometimes try to spread ourselves thin because we have a hard time saying "no" to people. We can wear ourselves thin. We begin pursuing things that might not be what where we're meant to be, but we feel bad turning it down. It's hard, I know!
Where you are right now, you have special gifts, talents, quirks, characteristics about you that ONLY YOU possess. You're a masterpiece and you're wonderfully made. Without you possessing those special features, the world wouldn't be what it is right now.
Don't get caught up in trying to compete with the person next to you. Stay in your lane, grow in the areas that you know you have passion and were created to do. And if you don't know what that is? Seek it. Try new things. See what stirs a fire in your heart.
You have a purpose. You are unique. You are special. You are loved.
Have a great week, and remember, you are you and that's a beautiful thing.
