I really seem to be struggling right now with my writing. I’m going to ramble a little more today, like in this post. I am still learning to take that post to heart. I think part of the struggle is I am still trying to write what I think people want to hear instead of what I know I need to write. I hope that is because I want to serve and help people and not because I want to be popular.
I am also struggling because I have events, stuff, whatever you want to call it, going on that I can’t write about just yet. Plus, as is typical the last 2 weeks of the year, it is a struggle to do my job. Many of the people I want to meet with keep saying we will meet next week, yet they are in the office, and probably not that busy. Now, would be a great time to meet. And, it is challenging to serve the customers that are working when the majority of our support staff is on vacation.
I’m still trying to find my voice in my writing. I pray and think about it quite a bit. My plan was to provide business and sales insights from the perspective of a follower of Christ. Not sure that is where God is leading me though. I seem to lean more to the spiritual side in my inspiration of what I want to write, and less to the business side. Just one of those things that I have to work out. Unfortunately, anyone reading this has to go along for the ride too.
I really do love to write. I am studying and reading up to get better at writing. I write every day, both as a personal journal and a spiritual journal on my daily scripture reading. I do need to take my own advice, break some rules, try some new things, and not fear mistakes.
This is what I do know about struggles. When I/we fight through to figure it out, and endure the struggle, we grow stronger and smarter. It prepares us for the next set of challenges and struggles. Plus, if its not a struggle at times, I’m probably on the wrong track. I am learning to be content in the struggle too, knowing that all good things come from God in His time on His schedule, not mine. Learning to live expectantly and with patience instead of living anxiously about the next struggle.
I am going to embrace the struggles. View them as a blessing instead of a frustration.
What about you?
