I woke up the other morning feeling like "what the hell am I doing?!" I felt like my hustling efforts were at a stand still; like I was doing a lot of seed planting but nothing was sprouting fast enough. I was unmotivated. Then I took a deep breath and told myself that I could either lay here and wallow in my bull, get up and go harder, or get up and go grocery shopping. I chose the latter.
Sometimes when you've done all you can do, you just have to step back and trust that God will do the rest. When I agonize over things and try to force them, it seems to push them further from my reach and it takes forever for them to come to fruition. But when I do my part, let stuff flow freely, then leave it be - things start happening.
My grandmother always says, "a watched pot never boils." And she is right. Ever threw some water in the pot and stood there to watch it boil....it takes a minute huh? But when you throw the water in the pot then walk off and come back, it's cooking time. Let that sit in your brain for a second.
In other news, you all know I love a good statement tee or sweatshirt. This particular one caught my eye not because of the popping fuchsia color but because of the message. It represents how I try to live my life daily - outside the box. Feeling it? Cop your hoodie here.
Here's to being unconventional and not watching the pot boil.
Peace and Blessings,
