NOTHING CHANGES if Nothing Changes.

Hi Y’all!

I came across this quote and it immediately hit me. Nothing changes if nothing CHANGES. I do think that so many of us gather together a mountain full of goals and To-Dos, hoping that things will be accomplished and finessed on their own. But what we fail to realize is that the vision(s) that we have for ourselves must be accompanied by action. Many things are out of our control, but some things can still be regulated by us! So if that means that you want to live your 2017 without negative people in your life, then understand that it is required that you let go of those people, fix your own views/issues that drew them to you in the 1st place, and move forward.

If it’s a job that you want, new career field, becoming a business owner, finding a lover, being a great parent, etc.; just know that if you don’t change, nothing will change. So while you’re depending/waiting on God to fix this, God is waiting on you to make a move so that he can shake some things around and make some ways for you to get it done. Step out on faith and go the mile. God will give you the strength, wisdom, discernment, and power needed to see it through.

The process is tough, but settling is even tougher. Don’t be attracted to the mundane and safe route. Nothing ever really births out of you in those places. It’s in the unknown, gray areas of life that teach us the most about ourselves, God, and the things around us. Trust yourself. Trust what you know. Trust what you posses within. God made no mistake. You were born to win, not just struggle, barely make it, or not make it at all.

You can’t allow your yesterday to keep determining your today and tomorrow. Change it ALL by making the changes needed. We just have to find the lane that we were created to drive in and once we’ve discovered that, we are in position to drive (and thrive) like never before. It’s OK! You got this guys!

    Its very true that when we want to expect a change we think it is going to happen all on its own without help. However, we have to take the necessary steps to make changes that way whatever is coming our way we are prepared for it.

      Yes, indeed! I do agree! Steps are important and being ready for that change is definitely a whole other ball game. I think we do sometimes ask for change based on the idea but aren’t truly ready for what comes with it. Thanks so much for your input on this! 🙂

    Good morning! I used your quote in my Monday morning post that I wrote last night. You’re so insightful. If we don’t change, nothing in our lives will change for the better. Faith without works is dead. Happy Monday, sis! ❤
