Have you ever had this need for a drastic change in your life?
Lately, I’ve been thinking about how people are content with remaining the same. They get up and do the same ole routine they’ve done for years and see absolutely nothing wrong with that. And if they’re happy with it, then who am I to judge. But let’s face it…I’m judging! We all judge, just most of us don’t want to admit it.
Some of us judge more harshly than others. I do it in the way of “I don’t” want to be like the person I’m looking at, so let me make some changes.
For those of you who don’t know, I have three kids. I have one in college, one going this fall, and my last one going into 7th grade. So my life is changing in ways that I didn’t realize it could. Of course, I’m not entirely thrilled about it, but hey, how can I fight it. Kids grow up and move on, and we (parents) have to find a new normal.
I’m not going to lie; I’m struggling a tad bit with all the changes. I’m going to miss my Friday night football games. Even though my son will be playing football in college, it’s the change that gets me.
My husband and I will be left with one little kiddo, which means I have time to focus on myself, and I refuse to waste a moment in my feelings. My priority will be concentrating on my next move and figuring out where I see myself in the next five years. I have a lot of ideas swirling around in my head and —a vision board in the making.
As of now, I’m not quite sure where I’m headed, but I do know that it’s time for a massive change!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

Change is hard, scary, and uncomfortable. It can lead to growth and discovery, though.
I agree… it definitely can and yes it’s so scary! I’m a wreck but praying my way through it
Ah yes I get it. That judgement, I wouldn’t admit but it is there. Good thing is it is a fuel for change in me. And those changes, they get to us. Yet it is so good to have a personal focus in life that keeps us going. You are doing great I think.
Yes, the changes really do get to us and make us fight through our feelings. It’s hard sometimes but prayer is giving me the peace I need. Thank you for your encouraging words 🙏🏽
Much Love _()_
Life is a constant evolution Belladonna. Nope, nothing stays the same and to me, in certain situations that is a very good thing. 👍🏼 I don’t like change when we lose someone we love, but even that makes us think about how it affects and strengthens our life and our choices. So sista, just roll with it, because as you noted, you may not know where you’re headed, but a change is gonna come…oh yes it is!!! 🤗💃🏽🥂
Awwwwww thanks my boo!!! I’m so happy to see you commenting on here! Now I feel special 😍😍😍
Best wishes to you, Belladonna. Vision boards have been helpful for me in the past. Now I have vision book – I can add more and it takes up less space. I am excited for you!
That’s a great idea! I’ll look into that.
Thank you Michele, with prayer and patience I’ll figure this next step out 😍
Wonderful! I keep it on my desk and flip to whatever page speaks to me each day. Prayer and patience sounds like a perfect approach. 💐
Thank you so much Michelle! I love new suggestions 😍
Happy to share!
