Motivation

Hey there Junipers...

I know I've been sorta off the grid this week.  Life has just been a little tough lately.
A lot of changes are taking place in my life.... ALL GOOD... don't get me wrong... just a little scary.


I'm afraid of making wrong choices in my life.  I want everything to go smoothly and be perfect... you know somewhat like Martha Stewart pre-jail?  I know that is a completely unrealistic expectation to have but I also know that somewhere inside of everyone they wish for life to be good and simple. 


Here is another peak into one of my September lists.  This one was actually really hard to articulate.  I find that almost everything around me can be inspiring at times.... I know that I seem to feel more motivated when I've had enough sleep.... Maybe I should have put proper sleep on the list.


So what decisions have I been making might you ask?  Well...  Recently my boyfriend and I have decided to start attending a new church.  (Not out of anger or anything negative with the previous church!  I have to say that because I want people to know that this wasn't a reactionary decision)  With that has come a lot of worry over telling people.  I worry that people will be angry, disappointed, or feel let down over this decision.  

Also I have decided it's time to make a career change.  Working at Starbucks is just not sustainable for my quality of life anymore.... so I have been hunting for new jobs.  Not an easy task I have to tell you!


The cherry on the top of this busy/stressful week has been that I am house sitting for a few friends that have  left for a trip to Paris.   Meet Caramel.  She is the funniest little kitty with a kink in her tail.  Although this has been another responsibility added to the plate it has actually been really sweet to get to know this cat.


As I sort out the next few weeks of life I promise I will blog as often as I can.  I think this is a really healthy thing for me to do.  
I will have a lot more lists...crummy cell phone puctures... and a BRAND NEW TYPEWRITER in the future!  

Thank Good Glory it's Friday!
muah!

  2. First of all I love your blog, makes me smile, good thing. :) Never posted before, on any blog, but I was very moved by your decisions this week. As someone who has had to deal with the changing your choice in the church you go to situation. I just wanted to give you a couple of tips: (My list for today. :) )
    1: Pray to God for help and confidence that you are making the right decision and then trust in him for the support and guidance you two need.(Proverbs 3:5,6)
    2: When you do tell people, respect their right to their views, just as you want them to respect your right to yours. (Matt 7:12)But stick to your guns.
    3: Jesus said that love is the identifying mark of the true religion, so gain comfort from your new church(John 13:35)
    I truly hope that helps! I really do wish you all the best in this big decision!!!

  3. I hear ya on the changes, it can be tough. Sometimes when we get nervous though it means we are doing the right thing and that can sometimes be even scarier as it is nearer and dearer to our hearts and it can be really scarey to think failing at our dreams. But the way I see it is if you don't try you'll never know and I would rather know than just wonder. Life is too short :) Hope to see ya on the weekend hun!
