I was on instagram the other day (shocking, I know) and someone posted a picture and it read “you can do anything, but not everything.” And this struck such a chord with me. It was empowering and freeing at the same time.
Recently, I’ve started to dream again. I know that sounds weird but hear me out. For a long time, I felt like being a mother and a wife were the only two things I could focus on. Like being a mom and a wife were the only things I was ever going to be, or do. And while I absolutely LOVE being a mother and even more a wife, I realized that that’s not all I want to be.
So I decided that this year was going to be a year that I focused on myself, and what I want to accomplish. In doing that, I’ve come to the realization that there are a lot of goals and dreams that I have and want to pursue.
I think I started to dream too much too fast. I am dedicated to my goals, and I will accomplish them in time, but I don’t have to do everything right away. Some dreams take more time than others, and after seeing that quote, I realized that I should focus on one thing at I time.
I believe I can do anything, with the Lord of course, but I can’t do everything all at once. It got too overwhelming. I have a better shot at accomplishing all my goals if I take it one step at time. I can still be an accomplished women, working hard and chasing my dreams, without doing everything all at once.
I hope you all can be encouraged by this. You don’t need to do everything, but you can anything you put your mind to. Work hard and chase those dreams.
