Yesterday, I took some much needed “focused rest.”
I read, prayed, reflected and listened; to a seminar on ensuring God is the center of your life AND your business. It was exactly what my tired soul needed. I have to be honest….
After finally launching Kailey Michelle Events, I find myself exhausted, yet, I can’t say Im surprised. Its more of a mental exhaustion than a physical one. The last month was a serious push. I spent hours each day, waist deep in text, formatting and the most consuming of all, initial blog posts. Being the over-achiever I, love/ hate about myself, I wrote 12. Not 5 like the recommended, but 12! I poured every once of my being into it, ensuring that at first glance, the right mood was set and at first read, my heart was overly prevalent.
And since that fabulous day, Friday October 7th at exactly 4:47pm, when the web read LIVE, my creativity’s been in hiding. My deep thought has left (if only for a while) and what’s replaced it, is an overwhelming sense of calm…. and peace and relaxation. I pray this is a good thing, but the marketing nerd in me is ANXIOUS! (understatement of the year)
“Get going.” It says. “Comment. Write. Speak. Market. Connect. Network. BE BRILLIANT!”
And then a voice whispers softly to my heart. “Be still and know that I am God.”
Sometimes I forget that He’s the one in control. He’s holding the pen, writing the story of my life; thoughtfully, careful and with intent purpose. I need not worry or fret. Nor do I need to panic myself into ON mode. It will come, in due time.
For now, I sit back and admire all that God created….in me. How beautiful is that?!
And I say, “It is good!”
ps: This sunset greeted me on my evening walk. It was so profound I stopped dead in my tracks for nearly 10 minutes. In that moment, He spoke; not in a loud voice, but in a gentle whispered breeze.
