I haven’t blogged in a while, and I really have missed it.

A lot has been happening for me.

I found out on Monday the 13 of March that my little place where I have lived for nearly 9 years was going to be sold. At first, I thought what!!

I then thought okay maybe this is an opportunity for a new season, new things and new experiences.

I really placed my trust in God during this whole process.

After my first response of okay, then it was the thought of let’s trust.

I looked on the real estate page and saw a place that could be a possibility. My sister also saw the same place and sent it to me.

It is a lovely 2 bedrooms, one bathroom villa.

I phoned the agent and booked to look at the place, my lovely sister and my brother in law came to help me out.

We had a look and then I went home and thought about it.

I then decided that I wanted to have another look and so I did.

I then made an offer to buy the villa, another aaaghhhh moment.

I had an amazing mortgage broker that worked with me and helped me with every step.

I had on my heart what to offer and I stuck with it.

So, fast forward to May 13 and I moved into my new place. Writing this now I have realised that all of this happened in 2 months. Wow!

For me I had such a sense of peace and I knew that this was the right decision.

I really wanted to share this with you.

I really wanted to encourage you.

One of the reasons I wanted to share this was because when I knew that I needed to move I went up for prayer at the church I attended. The Pastor there prayed with me and last week I went up to share a praise report.

I wanted to encourage others that we need community, we need someone to stand in the gap for us.

I sit in my new place and just can’t believe the changes that have happened. It happened in 2 months and I am loving this new season.

Have you been through a change in your life?

How did you find it?

Did you trust the process?

Do you have a prayer request?

 

Will share more soon.

Crazy Busy

Crazy Busy

I love Pinterest and was searching through it one night when I discovered one of Brene Brown’s quotes.

This quote really caught my eye.

crazybusy.

Take sometime to read it and then read it again.

It made me reflect about my life, have I let crazy busy be my armour?

Have I let crazy busy be my day to day way of life?

Have I let crazy busy in, so that I can numb other areas of my life?

I don’t know about you but my life is full and I love what I get to do. I really do, I love my role as a primary school chaplain. I love planning programs and investing in others. I love writing, I love being a blogger and I love being a creative.

I am an encourager a cheerleader and I love that.

This week I am on school holidays and I have sometime to breathe, sometime to rest, sometime to stop and unwind. I am very grateful for holidays.

Having this time to stop, I have time to reflect on what is it that I am numbing, I have the time to reflect on how I am really feeling.

Yes, I am going to go there (insert vulnerable moment). Aahh!

To be honest I find myself siting with some thoughts, I find myself sitting in that uncomfortable place, that place that can be very messy. That place that I really don’t want to go too.

That place if I am really honest and think about the real desirers of my heart, I can feel the tears welling up in my eyes. You know those tears that start stinging the ones that you try and brush away?

So where to now?

Let’s be honest with ourselves if we need some support find someone that you can be yourself with.

Find a mentor, it is okay to ask for help it really is.

We need to be kind to ourselves when we realise that we are in the Crazy Busy moments.

We need to encourage one another.

Maybe we may need to see a professional.

Journal, pray and find some prayer warriors.

Let’s be women that can acknowledge the crazy busy, and know that asking for help is okay.
