Want to change your life? Change your perspective.
I know it sounds simple, but sometimes it really is just that simple. Our perspective gets clouded by our routines and the people who influence us when we are looking to make a change. Change is loaded. There are tons of emotions connected to change because it can be scary, difficult, and make you feel vulnerable unlike consistency. There would be no reason to experience change if consistency weren’t so boring or we didn’t need to grow as people, but change is necessary. I hope and pray that I’m a different person tomorrow than I am today because I want to be a better wife, sister, daughter, cousin, friend, and mentor.
What about you? Are there areas that you want to improve on? Have you found that life is super busy and that, in the midst of all of the busyness, it’s hard to think about what changes would work for your future? I know I have. It’s why I’m such an advocate for taking the time to reflect on where we find ourselves today and set goals for the places we plan to go and the people we plan to become. It doesn’t just happen. It has to be intentional.
I developed a retreat for girls and women, called The 3rd Refill, with the non profit I direct (The Colorfully Candid Paradigm), and it’s time for our third retreat. Why is it called The Refill? Because you need a minute to be refilled with a resolve to be true to yourself. Are your interests authentic or have you just begun to copy your friends? You need a minute to be refilled with a resolve to be true to your family and friends. Our family and friends love us and it’s easy to treat them unfairly or unkindly because they’re the ones we come into contact the most. It’s time to love those closest to us hardest. You need a minute to be refilled with a resolve to God, the Lover of your soul, the One who wants to make all things work in your favor, the One who loves you more than anyone else. Enough said.
Consider joining us on The 3rd Refill. I guarantee that after the amazing workshops you attend, the games, time relaxing in the pool, spa night, goal setting, and campfires, you’ll return refreshed and refilled. It’s going down Friday, June 30-Sunday, July 2, 2017 and it’s going to be unforgettable! Registration is at www.colorfullycandid.eventbrite.com so head over there today and make it happen!
