I made a commitment to myself and I took a break from social media for the month of September. Honestly speaking coming down to the end of my time, I peaked at my pages only to realize that life goes on whether or not you choose to partake in it. I also realized that I have control over the amount of time that I choose to spend on social media. Moderation is key!!!
Today's Daily Dose comes from my visit to Manna at Abyssinian Baptist Church. The word was rich and just what I needed to hear at this particular time of my life. Like many of you out there, I too am searching for my level next, but something that I am beginning to accept about level next is that you can't take everyone and everything from your level now into your level next.
In this time and season, we have to stay focused and connected to our creator so that we can receive the guidance that is needed to make the right choices about the next phases of our lives.
The following list was shared in church and I hope that you will apply it to your life.
HOW TO RESPOND TO DISTRACTIONS?
1. Recognize your destination.
2. Be determined to get there.
3. Know that you will have obstacles.
4. Remember how you respond in life will determine the depth of your problem.
Notes to self:
Change your behavior.
Change your response.
Obstacles are a sign that you are making progress.
Stop letting small time people cause big time problems.
Live like you have somewhere to go.
Reflect on how you've dealt with your distractions in the past. What will you do differently in your present moment as you prepare for your level next?
