It’s easy in today’s society to be tempted to “go with the flow” or “comply with culture”. I disagree.
I think it’s a time to cherish our unique qualities and display our core values. To do this we have to be willing to examine, protect, strengthen what’s most precious. We can be tempted to throw the baby out with the bath water because its easier to agree with status quo.
If we live like this we can guarantee attrition of some of our most valuable assets-faith, hope, love, gifts, grace and/or character.
I encourage you to pray, meditate get present and pull yourself up so you can strengthen the valuables that remain. It‘s not too late.
Where can you make small changes that will be most beneficial? What activities can you shave from your schedule that are not beneficial any more? In what situation can you speak up to set a healthy boundary?
To make change more digestible talk to people who have made the changes you are seeking to make and research new territory that you are planning on entering . As you plan to make adjustments make sure that you have things and awesome people in place to replenish your energy!
All the best,
