A candid write about owning your rhythm-
“What ails you my child? has the pressure of trying to measure up now become too heavy on your shoulders?”
I saw this pic-post on a friends ig page and it spoke volumes to what brutish torture most of us are under these days.
Disclaimer: do not swallow this pill except it fits your prescription. Aziiiin, this post may not apply to all y’all, but perhaps it does to you? (. . .Or maybe I’m just low-key talking to myself 😒)
Back to the picture that inspired this post. . .
I get a lot worn out and distracted sometimes, and I came to realize that it’s because I try to do so much all at once. I try to do so much, that I don’t fully commit to the one. In my defence, I’m like a rainbow in a glass cup, a colorful paint ball waiting to explode, a galaxy colored unicorn with wings -God blessed me with many gifts, I‘m like that servant with 5 talents– so most times I feel I’m powerful enough to multitask. But I guess no one is that powerful. I know the bible says we can do allthings, but there’s no way you can attempt multiple goals all at once without one or all suffering a deficiency.
One of the reasons I try to do everything at once is because the world seems to be on a fastforward, everything and everyone seems to be moving so fast. I see a lot of people do big things, I feel proud for them, and I so want to feel proud of myself too. I don’t want time to run out while I’m still 1/3 way through my race. Sigh. The pressures we put ourselves under because we feel we need to measure up. Sigh. So this stress got me all wrapped up in a warp and I knew I had to scream, to sha get a release. I asked the HolySpirit to give me someone I could talk to for counsel, and while I spoke with Pee (my sister n bestfriend) about it she dropped a Rhema, she said, “focus on one gift and be committed to it- that one gift will lead you to all the others”. She called me to gist about something else o, but after our conversation, that was all the release I needed. (Thank you HS)
Knowing that everyone is gifted differently~ we may all be running one race, but we have different lanes. Different strengths. Different weaknesses. Different seasons. Different times. Different *fill in the gap*. It’s wise to identify your strengths, know what you can handle per time, don’t be a longa throat and bite more than you can chew or else you might choke on it, lol hellar. Find your pace, and maintain your rhythm.
So now this is me, swaying to my blues 💃 while I let you boogie to your raggae.
Gosh I hope this wasn’t too long a read. 🙈
