Dropping them like flies
I used to be such a rule follower. This rule following thing meant I took peoples opinions and suggestions and tried to implement them. Whatever they said was right, whatever they wrote was correct. No challenging their rule over me. Somewhere along the lines, I started to question why and when I had stepped into this “rule following” persona.
God is doing something new in me to break me from this. HE is leading me in every little thing. For example: Running. I was using an app, via someone’s suggestion, for almost two years and STILL couldn’t even run a mile without stopping. I finally decided to delete the app and just enjoy running for once. My goal was to run/walk 2.5 miles at least 4 times a week. Well, NOW I RUN A LITTLE OVER A MILE STRAIGHT then run/walk another TWO miles!!!! Got me thinking…
My focus, back then, was always on pleasing people, doing things right, and following directions. But, that routine I was stuck in was actually a hinderance to me moving forward! AND, I wasn’t actually listening to God! (The only place I didn’t follow directions was in my cooking! I hate cooking and I wanted to just be a free spirit, when it came to that.) I needed to redirect my heart, mind, and eyes elsewhere. During that time of realization, I sensed God giving me some real freedom from the “normal” rules of Life Coaching, that STILL followed the “unspoken” law I thought I needed to follow.
I pretty much told God if this was really Him telling me to do this, then HE needed to give me step by step instructions, even in the details. I was used to the “recipe” lifestyle. I just wasn’t having any fun, or success. Eventually, HE started putting things together, like crazy mad! One thing led to another and BAM! I have been working like a wild woman putting things in place to add a workshop to Hidden Potential Coaching. (Starting April 26th)
This new improved Hidden Potential Coaching is going to reflect the core of who I am. Because I can finally say, “I LIKE who I am!” I want to do something that is more me, and allow God to use who I am to make a bigger difference, instead of me working to fill whatever mold I was trying to fill in the past. God has been showing me how to take this “recipe” and add a little here and try a little there…
Did I mention I am excited? These rules are dropping like flies on a cold day! I am learning that I was made to hear Gods voice FIRST and to follow HIM! Its super fly to do that! Woot! Woot! Gonna be sooooo good!
