It's My Time

Do you ever feel like you are just treading your way through life? I do. Sometimes I feel like I’m barely keeping my head above water. I have so many things I want to do, but most of the time I can’t make it past simply taking care of everyones basic needs of sleeping, eating and staying clean. Sometimes...I can’t even accomplish that. How will I ever be able to accomplish anything else if I can’t even get the basics down?

I hate that things have come to this stage. Wait. I hate that I haven’t yet made it past this stage. These past three years have been very transitional for our family. Two babies, several different job positions for my husband and two moves have taken its toll. I have not found my groove and I desperately need to because my soul is calling out for me to do more, be more, serve more. And maybe the truth is we’ve been moving just a bit too fast. Our focus hasn’t been where it needs to be.

I’ve been reading Erin’s series about white space and they couldn’t ring more true for me. I too need to create white space. Space that I can fill with the things my soul needs. A place for me to accomplish my dreams. A place for my husband and I to grow more in our relationship. A place for me to serve others. A place for me to be quiet. Right now I just do a lot of running around, stressing out and accomplishing nothing. That has got to come to an end.

I’ve been struggling with not feeling personally fulfilled. I have a wonderful husband and kids, but I don’t feel like I’ve been a wonderful version of me. Lately my mind has been overcome with ideas and instead of shoving them in the corner like I normally do, I’ve decided to do something with them. I’m rearranging and reorganizing my life so that I can do me. It’s my season. It’s my time. The only person that can hold me back is me and I’m letting go.

  1. Good for you, Laura! We have this one life and one chance to make the most of it. God first, people second, and stuff third. And my little people need me to be present, not running around focusing on things that don't really matter. Go for those big ideas! Make it happen for you!!

  2. These last few years really have held so much for your family. I hope you find your white space. Erin's series has definitely been an encouragement. I think many of us can relate to this feeling. Praying for you as you enter a new season of life!

  3. Yes. Yes, yes, yes. This is me to a T lately, and I feel like I'm talking to EVERYONE about it, waiting for someone to give me this magical solution. I feel so inadequate because most days, I go to bed with a dishwasher full of clean dishes to be put away, and a sink full of dirty dishes. I feel like I need to run the dishwasher 3x a day in order to catch up. I feel like nap times are just way too short. Do I do what *I* want or get things done that need to be done? I, too, am enjoying Erin's posts. It's a comfort to know I'm not crazy, and this isn't just me going through it!

  4. Definitely relatable Laura! Thanks for sharing. I hope you share your journey and any solutions you find as you go!

  5. Just keep praying sister. God has a purpose for all of us!

  6. I love that Erin is really inspiring and encouraging all of us so much ! You get it girl! You def need some "Me" Time and you deserve it!
