I’ve noticed that usually when I start doing something new (for me that could be blogging, leading a life group at South Bay Church, or just implementing a new schedule for our family), I usually start it because of a passion that’s triggered inside of me. The reason could be a positive one (it’s something I feel inspired by) or a negative one (it’s something I feel challenged to work on).

My problem comes when that “new thing” has run it’s course and now needs altering and changing. It’s hard to change something when it began out of a passion. It’s personal; it means something.

When something we’re doing is no longer needed or necessary, it can actually now start getting in the way- potentially preventing more growth.

One of my biggest fears in life is not growing, and while some change hurts and is hard, I fear staying in the same place more than the risk of change.

One of the changes (of many) I’m challenged with is this blog and its content. I have loved the four words “Living, Learning, Loving, Leading” because I feel like they represent my life- in a very broad way. But now I feel challenged to narrow my focus, and as much as it scares me, I’m excited for the challenge. I’ve prayed about it for weeks, talked with friends about it, and I’m excited to dive in.

Thanks for being on this journey with me as I learn and grow in this.┬áStay tuned to find out where I’m going with all this…
