"For everything there is a SEASON"... has always been one of my favorite verses,
and has truly helped me go through some major struggles in life.
Believing that "THIS too shall pass" because I understood "this is a season"
has pushed me onward with strength that I knew
could only be gained in the STRUGGLE.
I have also used this verse to push me through the "SEASONS"
like winter and the yucky, cloudy, depressing drizzly days
we have been in for what feels like WEEEEEKS now.
I know there are people out there who do NOT love the summer sunshine,
and they treasure the chilliness of winter.
So, for those people...this verse has helped me SHARE.
Today, as I was getting the buckets and buckets of Fall Decorations from the attic
(because it is my little son's favorite SEASON)-
I got my literal 100th message from a BLOG friend
asking me to please start doing videos.
The reason I know this is the 100th request
is because I HAVE been counting!
And.... secretly, when this all began I told myself
when then 100th person asked me for a BLOG video
then I would know it was the right time
(feeling VERY safe this would never happen).
So... Today while decorating our house for FALL
"For everything there is a SEASON"...
took on a WHOLE NEW MEANING
as I guess I am about to embark upon a new one myself.
To be very truthful, I have resisted the video form of media.
I HATE my voice and the terrible West Texas drawl that flows from my every word. AND... I have NEVER wanted to make anyone listen to me on a video or recording.
I sound like I should be on an episode of HEE HAW.
In fact, my whole life I have had countless people tell me TO MY FACE...
"Oh, I didn't know you were smart!" haha
I have to laugh and say yes, I know... it's the voice.
As I gather my strength to go WAY outside my comfort zone
and face my BIGGEST neurological negative "trigger" thought -
REJECTION and Abandonment ,
I promised myself that if I could preach it to someone else,
then I was going to have to live it as well.
NOTHING GOOD ever happens in THE COMFORT ZONE.
So... I am going to put on my BIG girl Boots, wash my face,
and give it my best shot next week.
My goal is to pass along the Neuroscience of Gratitude
with a BLOG and a video version
so those 100 people who have asked
can listen in their cars or while they get ready in the mornings.
and...I promise NOT to make them very long! haha
