Some people hate change. They get nervous about rearranged furniture or unplanned travel. Not me. I need new seasons in life–new responsibilities, and challenges. For about two months, I’ve been feeling the need to “shake things up”, but just couldn’t figure out where the “itch” was. I realized it wasn’t just one area of life–it’s everywhere. I’m ready for an Overhaul. And you know what? I’m excited!
Here are just a few things I’m doing that will Definitely challenge me in this next season:
I ordered Insanity. Yes, I am insane. Let’s see if I’m still breathing the week after it arrives. Clearly, the results will be immediate.
I’m reevaluating my work life. I love where I work and can’t imagine leaving. I know I have to be intentional-it’s not change just to have something new. It’s change to see how I might positively impact the company in a new way.
I’m taking the next step on a business idea. I have strong entrepreneurial tendencies and know what I’m capable of when it’s my butt on the line. The big win? It’s something that will be successful while also allowing me to keep my career. Can’t beat that.
I’m asking God for a radical assignment. Call me crazy, but from the time I was a little girl, I’ve asked that God ask me to do something big. And when I look at my life, all I see is a place where things have become comfortable. For others, that’s likely the picture of perfection. For me, it means I’ve really missed it somewhere. I don’t need to lose it all to think God has used me, but I do think big faith means change, and I don’t want to look back on a life that was just comfy. I want to know I really made a difference.
Your turn. Are you doing anything radical these days? If so, do you love it or does it stress you out?
