First off, Happy Birthday to Maggielola, the awesome woman behind Worship and Swag! May God continue to bless her hustle and her life as she shares her message with the world.
My birthday is less than a week away, and there’s nothing like an upcoming birthday to trigger introspection. Around this time for the past few years, I crave alone time to spend thinking about my life. I mostly think about how I’m not where I thought I would be by this age, and to be honest I get frustrated and upset about it. I know that beating myself up mentally won’t change things, so I shut down the pity party as soon as it begins.
The questions I’ve been asking myself are:
What do I want?
What’s holding me back?
How do I change?
The answers to these questions are inspiring, depressing, and daunting, respectively. I wrote a longer blog post breaking down answers to the questions but I decided not to post it because the only response you could have after reading it would be Jummy: get off your butt and just get stuff done, yo! Geez! This has to be the last year I spend with these thoughts.
If you’re great at getting things done, I mean hard things that take months and maybe years to accomplish, how do you keep going? What is your key to success?
