It’s OK to Rest

I am tired. My heart and mind keeps pulling me to you to rest. I keep fighting you. I feel like if I keep working and helping others it will be ok.

I feel like I am barely hanging on. Trying to help others, motivate, give advice, push them to do better and then I stop and have nothing left for me.

This is life as I know it over the last 6 months. This my plan, not God’s.

I started 2 years, really 3 if we are talking God’s plan. I started writing 3 years ago because God said to write, people want to hear what you have to say. I couldn’t wrap my head around this at first but it happened. It still happens.

Each story I wrote God always gave me the words, the people and scriptures to finish. 40K words later and this short story slowly is becoming a book. I have been sharing God with my life, giving you a scripture and there, but not putting Him first.

When I put God first I am finding life is more balanced and I am not frazzled. When your eyes are on Jesus the life stressors that weigh your mind and heart down are not as heavy.

To me this is less worry and anxiousness, less irritability and a calmness when life is falling apart around me.

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NLT

As 2020, or my year 2 of coaching the FASTer Way draws to an end, I am seeing that I need to take time to focus on God and His purpose for me. I need to redirect my path back to the course He started me on.

I am taking the time to slow down. I need to fill my cup again, so I can continue to fill yours and give 100% of myself to you as your coach.

Coach Queena was talking on her IGTV about starting over, and it hit me between the eyes (LOL your brain is between your eyes). I was becoming irritated at myself because I was not in the same place I was 2 years ago. My clothes fit a little tighter and I was slipping back to that comparison negative mentality with myself.

She said it best, “Nobody cares about how many times you have fallen, we want to know about every time you got back up.”

I am getting back up ladies!

October 19th will be my last FASTer Way To Fat Loss class for 2020. I am taking the next 2 1/2 months to focus on God, myself and how I serve others. I am completing the Jenny Mire’s Habit>Hustle Challenge and will be attending the FASTer Way To Fat Loss conference and be updating my web page.

I will also be creating my first free E-guide for you to learn how to take control of your health, Finding Freedom with Faith, Food and Fitness. This was created during my service to the women of Judy’s House.

It seems like a lot, but these are task that I need to do as I follow the path God has planned for me and to serve you as your health coach.

If you want to join me in this journey of Habit>Hustle grab the link and take a look, it’s free. Take the time for God and finding balance.

If you are wanting to take control of your health before 2020 ends and go into the holiday season knowing you are living a healthier life jon me in my last FASTer Way round for 2020. We start October 19th.

Last but not least get on my 2021 FASTer Way To Fat Loss waiting list. My January 4, 2021 class will be epic.

Whatever path you are on put God first and “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9
