Dear Fellow Go-Getter Gal,
I get you. You’re a passionate fireball with all the ideas, and all the energy to get those ideas done. You wanna know how much I get you? My Dad sent me this meme to describe me:
Yeah, I know. Fireball much? lol!
Maybe you’re an idea generator. Maybe you’re an activist. Maybe you’re just a gal who has passion & fire, but doesn’t know how to channel it. I get you.
Let’s hit pause for a moment. I know it’s hard, I know you have stuff you want to get done. Believe me, I wouldn’t be writing this if I didn’t think it was worth your time. Can I share some insight? Yeah, I’m just an 18 year old, trying to figure out life like everybody else… But God has given me this personality, and I want to share how I am navigating these tricky waters, not running over everybody else like a monster truck, and keeping myself sane in the process.
Ready? Ok then, let’s dive in.
You Are Not Enough.
Wow, that’s a bold statement to say these days. But then, what did you expect from a passionate fireball: fluff? I didn’t think so.
Get this grounded in your head: you are not enough.
You just aren’t. You will never go through the journey of life alone. You will never be without the need for help. Most of all, you will never be with out the desperate need for your Father & Savior in Heaven. If you want to survive this life without tearing you and everyone else around you apart, it’s time to accept this fact.
I’ve been there. I feel like I can do it all! For heaven’s sake, I’m a photographer, graphic designer, web programmer, seamstress, baker, cook, adobe-program fanatic, writer, artist, stylist, blogger, business owner… I certainly feel like I can do it all! But you know what happens when I think that? Stress. What happens with stress? A very sad, tiresome life.
Let go. You aren’t enough. Ask for help. Be willing to accept help. Be willing to give help. Know that you will never get through life’s journey all on your own.
You don’t have to be “everyone”, just be YOU.
But most of all, know that even though you are not enough, GOD IS.
Take all your worries, your dreams, your passions, your terrors… leave them at the Cross. You don’t have to carry that burden. Jesus took it on when He died for you sins. Why are you still carrying it?
I can’t stress enough just how important it is to rest, recharge, and get a grip on life again. There have been too many days where I just workworkwork, and never take a moment to breathe in the fresh air, take a walk, pet the dog, get a snack, watch my favorite youtube channel… even take a moment to invest in the lives of my family. Time is a precious commodity, but you will only use it well if you take the time to recharge.
And Pray. Oh girl, you better take some time to pray. The only, and I repeat, the ONLY way your dreams are going to be realized is if you lay them at the feet of the Lord. He is the dream-giver, the passion-blesser, the one who gives beyond measure. He gave you those passions. Give them back to Him, and watch the increase. It will be beyond your imagination.
Never Loose Heart
It can be so easy to get caught up in your high-hopes, so that when something fails or falls apart, you loose heart.
Remember, why do we fall? So that we can pick ourselves back up again. Learn from your mistakes, and press on. Pursue your dream. Channel that go-getter passion, and never loose heart.
And finally, remember go-getter: you are amazing. You are the activist, the leader, the fireball. You have a gift. Channel it to God’s glory, and you will win the race.
