30 Days of Balanced Living: Day 14
It is amazing how in everyday life we have the opportunity to make change or make a difference. And, once we have a handle on our perspective about things, we can focus on being less rigid and more creative. It is our humanitarian duty and our Christian concern to care for others and our own personal welfare. In no small dose do we spend much of our time trying to please others, do what we are told, and follow a path that leads to achieving someone else’s dream for us. Every morning when I wake I am fully aware that I have just been blessed to see another day. Yes, a day I have never seen before and one that I will never have an opportunity to see again. So what do you do with a day like this one? Too often we do what we have always done. Wake up. Do the home routine. Go to work. Do the after work routine. Go home. Do the home routine. Our cycle is one with no creativity. In my book “Fulfilled! The Art and Joy of Balanced Living”, The Law of Creativity speaks to breaking routines, habits, and cycles that limit and hinder our growth. Sometimes a reveal is you coming to terms with your own reality.
Have you not been able to do what you wanted? Or become what you believe you were intended? If so, you are not alone. Billions of people have been pressed and molded into what others wanted them to become. But, that is not the way of God. Our ability to be creative comes from following the natural and spiritually given bent that God has placed within us. Our creativity is our willingness to follow God and use the gifts we have been given. Out of your past, when you let God in, you will see how to use all of your life experiences to lead toward a brighter, more fulfilling future.
1. Be ambitious – There is nothing wrong with seeking the greater good for your life. Our ambitions should cause us to lead a life that enhances, and enriches others, rather than hinder or destroy everything in our path.
2. Be cooperative – Our attitude about what it takes to be successful must be in line with what it takes to actually accomplish each task, required to be successful.
3. Be responsive – When it is time to do your part, come running with enthusiasm. We must do our fair share, as well as, take ownership for the role we play in our lives and in the lives of others.
These are characteristics that are needed to move your life forward. When you reach a level of reveal that enhances your own being; then you are ready to take steps toward changing your future for the better. No matter where you have been or what you have done, when your creativity flows, when your vulnerability shows. I have long since ceased being embarrassed about the happenings in my life. I understand and accept that where my past ends, my transparency begins. And, it is here that my reveals elevate me to new heights.
