The Push I Needed!

I love my FAMILY (yes, I have to make that bold), because they are so supportive, but it's actually one person who encouraged me to keep PUSHING to make my blog a success. You see I have a desire to write, and I look at other people's work and get inspired and then I am ready to start writing on my blog, but then something happens the Lazyness kicks in and *BAM* months go by and I have not written a single thing.

Well, yesterday after me and my cousin finished doing the "INSANITY" work-out, we started talking, and it got real. You know those talks when you talk about what you want to do in life and what you really desire to do as far as a career, yea one of those talks.

Well, she said something to me that made me think, I realized I had alot of excuses of why I wasn't writing and when I actually started sharing the excuses with her they really didn't make sense to me either. One reason was because I couldn't find a web-designer to create a site for me that was gonna be just so out of this world Her response:

"Why are you waiting for someone else, just go take classes and do it yourself", Me "but I don't have time", Her "That's one thing about me, I am gonna make time for things that I really want to do, and if you really want to do this you would make time for it" then, she said "Stop saying all these things that you want to do but not doing anything to get it done", and those words have been ringing all night and morning in my head.

Now, the bible does state in Proverbs 6:6 - "Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!", now, when you think of an ant in no way, shape, or form is it lazy matter of fact it carries objects twice it's body weight (not a known fact, but I do know it carries more than it weighs) but besides that ants are always moving, never have I known an ant to sleep (unless someone steps on him LOL) but I LOVE HOW THE MESSAGE BIBLE PUTS PROVERB 6:6-11

A Lesson from the Ant
6-11 You lazy fool, look at an ant.
Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two.
Nobody has to tell it what to do.
All summer it stores up food;
at harvest it stockpiles provisions.
So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing?
How long before you get out of bed?
A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there,
sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next?
Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life,
poverty your permanent houseguest!

WOW, I love it, if you don't work proverty will be a permanent houseguest. Not on my watch it won't, and now with that being said, the bible clearly tells us to work and not be lazy, and when you have GOD on your side you will have Sweatless Victories, but we have to do our part.

We have to get up get our priority and motives in right standings, and work and not let the spirit of procrastination set in, that is why people have a lot of regret in their lives, because they let procrastination set in, then they want to blame everyone else for their failure. I could have continued down that road and said "Well, since I can't find no one to design my site, then I can't write or do whatever else I wanted to do." but, No instead I am taking my cousin's advice and I am going to make things happen. I have God and he won't let me fail, it's not even in my DNA to fail (because I am made in his image and likeness), So why do I allow Lazyness and Procrastination to defeat me when my Bible tells me that I am to have Sweatless Victories.

So now my Vision is back on the Prize and I'm running full speed ahead! that's exactly why FAITHISBEAUTY.
