What makes you come alive (and why I am not blogging much now)

I know it has been a few weeks since I have blogged on here.  I am fine, just really busy. A lot of things have happened in the past few weeks. Good things, really good things. :)

After a lot of time and prayer the past couple months I have decided to go back to my Tupperware Director career full time. It is where my heart is, where I feel I excel and can do the most good in my life at and most importantly where I know God wants me to be. I have fought that direction for the past 2 years for various reasons but could not have more peace and clarity about going back to it full time than I do now.

I have closed up my design business (I have a couple projects still to finish) and I am really not sure what I will do as far as blogging going forward.  Pretty much if I have time and something to write I will write it but blogging will not be something I plan to focus/schedule out or pursue as a serious business /income. I will still be doing some reviews and sharing recipes and crafts from time to time too. I’ll still be around just  not blogging daily or on a schedule.

I will admit it is a leap of faith to go back to Tupperware full time. Not that I don’t believe that I can be successful or make a solid income in it, because I have before and know that I can again.  What it really comes down to is me relying on God instead of myself.

The past 2 years I got off track and got my priorities mixed up. I stopped trusting that God would provide. I stopped relying on Him to fulfill my needs.  I started feeling like I had to make sure ends were met and that it was somehow in my power to do that.

I have not felt the sense of peace, passion, excitement and just that “ahhh” feeling of coming home in a long time. As soon as I finally let go and fell to my knees, cried out to God and re-committed my business to Him, I just knew it would all work out and be okay.

I have met some amazing people and learned so much because of my time being a blogger and web designer. I don’t regret it or feel like it was a lost cause. It was just part of the journey.

I’ve learned so many lessons including that while we may be good at a lot of things and able to do a lot of things, it doesn’t mean we should be doing all of those things.  We have to find that one thing we are really good at, feel passionate about and can excel at.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Attributed to Howard Thurman

My question for you is – what makes you come alive??? What makes you feel the most joy, peace and just like you are where you belong? What makes you feel like you are making a difference and using your God given talents and abilities? If you aren’t currently living a life like that, pursuing a career or home business or lifestyle that makes you come alive, then I encourage you to search your heart, seek God’s will and get out there and find your passion, purpose & place in this world!

Life is too short to not be doing what we were meant to be doing and what makes us come alive and fulfill God’s purpose!
