PLANNING IN ADVANCE





Happy Tuesday! I pray you are having a wonderful new week! We have not approached the summer season and it's already recording breaking high temperatures. I can not even process the idea of wearing cardigans or any heavy layering piece until the cooler months arrive. However, I  won't be able to avoid a layering piece because most restaurants or buildings are very cold. This is why it is so important to plan things out in advance so when you get to your destination you can be fully present and free from distractions.

In addition to my wardrobe, there are other things I have to plan for in advance. Basically, these are things that are important to me in life like my health, time with family, and my faith. Oh, and cooking a healthy meal everyday and keeping my spaces clutter free. ...the list goes on:) I desired years ago to grow in these areas so planning in advance was imperative. Now, I know I could have chosen to avoid planning in advance but why would I leave the things that mattered the most to me in life up to chance.

The starting point for preparing in advance is quiet time. I will not spend much time on this because I wrote a blog post on quiet time here last month. Overall, prayers involve doing a lot of talking to God but quiet time involves listening and meditating on specific instructions for your life. Next, after receiving those instructions I journal it out. I give so much importance to journaling because we can lose most of what we hear or think about so quickly. However, when you write it down it gives those words power and motivation for you to see it through.

Last, my environment plays a huge factor in planning in advance for success. The people  you choose to spend time with or not spend time with will shape the direction your life goes in. Sometimes we can have a tendency to avoid areas that make us uncomfortable. Basically we can avoid places where we are not the smartest person in the room:). However, what we do the least is often what we need the most! When you intentionally place yourself in uncomfortable environments it promotes and encourage growth from within. Remember if we are not growing then our goals and dreams are dying!
