Practice What You Teach

So a while ago a friend called me out.  I mean all the way out. I was so called out that I had no comeback.  I just had to sit there and say you are absolutely right.  I was stuck in that moment with my lip on the floor.  I couldn’t say anything.  Here is the thing in my 9-5 I am a Business Manager.  People are in and out of my office all day long and I hear everything that you could imagine even things that I don’t want to imagine.  I work with a lot of creatives and they have so many ideas and things going on outside of the job it blows my mind but I love seeing it.  I find myself encouraging them to put more effort into these things, giving them strategies to move forward, and just being what they need in the moment of the conversation.  I love doing this, it is one of the best parts of my job.  So I was talking to one of them on the phone two weeks ago and they have this major project in the works and she is making strides.  She often would question if she should do it and I am always saying go for it what do you have to lose.  Just take the steps to get it done.  She has made some major strides since the quarantine break started and I was like see I told you it would work some times y’all should listen to me and she said it as clear as I didn’t want to hear it.  She said it isn’t that we don’t listen to you but we want to see you doing what you tell us to do also. (Insert stuck face right here.) Not long after we got off the phone I was like she is absolutely right and I started plotting.  I have plenty of content I just need to get it out.  I have plenty of experience I just have to let people know that I have what they need to help them get through the seasons of life. 

That is why this year is so personal for me. I am not only here to help and grow others but I am definitely here to help and grow myself. God didn’t give me all of these gifts that I have been running away from to just sit on and let them go to waste. I need to be putting them to great use. It is way past time for me to practice what I teach. I am committed to growing in everything this year. I am committed to helping others that I am meant to help grow this year. I am committed to the purpose of my life. I can’t believe that I have sat on this for so long it makes me roll my eyes at myself. But hey nothing says growth like changed behavior. I really hope and pray that you all are not sitting on your gifts and really going for the dreams and goals of your lives. I am making 2022 the most committed to myself that I can.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year or what area do you want to grow in that you have been putting off? Let me know, we should walk this thing out together.

I hope to hear from you soon but until then continue to live simply while making it extraordinary.
