Charting Your Own Growth

Hey Fam!
I won’t be long-winded today… I promise lol
As always I hope the start of your week is great and is filled with promise on what’s to come ahead.
So as the title suggests, we’re going to talk about charting our own growth… when I first thought about this, I was like “well do I properly chart my own growth?” A year ago the answer would have been a huge NO! Although, I’d like to believe that I’ve gotten considerably better over the past few months.
I know I’m not alone in the fact that I have certain goals I would like to reach. Looking at the end of those goals originally made me exhausted thinking about it. It seemed overwhelming, and impossible, and once again overwhelming lol. But when you begin to break things down into separate parts, what was once impossible now seems possible. The unattainable seems attainable. And ultimately the bigger picture seems a lot clearer. Although I still have these huge dreams or goals, what I began doing is pinpointing the most important part of whatever it is I’m trying to achieve. Then I began with that first. From there I set smaller goals. Now these small goals are ultimately going to lead to the bigger goal in mind, it just takes the, dare I say “pressure” away from the completing the large goal. When I began doing this, I became astounded at how much I actually completed.  It’s sort of like how God has these plans for our lives but they’re only revealed to us in increments because sometimes we can’t even fathom what he would have us do. So my friends, please don’t overwhelm yourself as you’re trying to complete your goals. Break the picture down into smaller parts and then work toward completing them. If you reach an obstacle, it’s fine because remember the problem is small. Plus there’s beauty in the struggle! Then… CHART YOUR GROWTH as you would the height of your firstborn child. With constant remembrance to where you once started and how far you’ve grown. As always I leave you with this…

Romans 5:3-5 (NLT)
3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Thanks again, God bless and One love.

P.S. I’d like to say thank you in advance to my bestfriend who’s going to read this and then text me any grammatical errors =)
