“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”
― Fulton J. Sheen
Today is the start of a new week. As usual, there are new things I want to focus on, and new ways I want to grow. I went to church today and received the perfect motivation to start my week. The message was about John the Baptist and the life he lived before he was killed. I will discuss my goals for this week, but before that I will give you all a recap of last week:
This week I went to the gym, hung out with friends and I went to the club. Going to the club helped me realize that I am over it. I had fun being around my girls, but the environment just annoyed me. I feel like I am too old to be around all the thirst and rudeness. Being in bars are completely different from clubs and I feel like I prefer a more chill environment. Getting bumped out the way when people are dancing and getting alcoholic beverages poured on me just isn’t a situation I want to deal with anymore.
In addition, I did not have much progress with my goals, I am not going to lie. I have not been selfish like I expressed I wanted to be and I still try to force things instead of being patient. Patience is something I have always struggled with. It’s so hard to not worry about certain goals that I have. I want everything (Stability, Happiness, Money)now and it is driving me crazy. This is nothing new, but this week my impatience was worst than ever. Pray that I find the much needed ability to let go and let God.
This week my focus will be my communication skills. I realize that sometimes I am extremely disrespectful when I say things. As people say, it is not what you say its how you say it. I also want to work on my honesty, because I notice that I have been lying lately to avoid hurting people’s feelings. I hate upsetting people and I also hate lying so I need to find a balance where I can tell the truth, but not be rude about it.
Being more selfish is still a focus. My nails need to be redone, there’s a couple movies I want to see and I also want to buy that book The Wait by Megan Good and her husband. As lame as I have been thinking it is, I want to read it. It will probably be a good book and offer me some insight. These tasks are my priority this week! Doing things I want to do for me.
On a random note, this entire month a lot of people have randomly complimented my singing voice. I have ALWAYS wanted to sing, but I didn’t feel confident enough. Well now I will attempt to create covers of songs I like. This will be interesting, but I want to see what feedback I get. I am no Beyonce’, but I think I can hold a note haha. Stay tuned!
