Overthink? Or, Think Over it?

Hey Family! Happy Friday! I’m so excited that you are here with me and I pray that this finds you doing well and healthy.

Today I want to take sometime to express some encouragement and food for thought to all my over thinkers. So lets dive in. What is a over thinker? Well first we have two words that we can break down, so let’s start there.

The word “Over” can defined as extending directly upward from and this is using “over” as a preposition.

Today we will focus more on the adverb definition and it simply says beyond and falling or hanging from a point.

Thinker can be defined as a person who thinks deeply and seriously. So when you put those words together you get some powerful stuff. An over extended deep thinker. 🤯 Just saying that kinda hurts my brain.

Now, don’t get me wrong. We need to be able to think rationally, clean and clear about the decisions we are making for our lives. Whether it’s for our businesses, families, and ect. We must check the posture from where it is coming from. The posture is the foundation. Ask yourself, why am I not able to make the decision quickly? Is it because it requires research or is just fear? See, the majority of us are over thinkers because we are afraid of failure and messing up. Some of us don’t want to mess up due to shame. What would my friends and family think about me if they find out I dropped out of college? We must take a trip and go back to the building blocks of our heart’s morals and find out what really matters to us.

It is surely ok to take your time and think it over but you can’t get stuck in the process of just thinking. Some of us, and myself included have taken out years of so called “vacation time” thinking about a business we wanted to create or a book we wanted to write and not to actually start on it but thinking about the outcome or the unknown. If I wrote a book, would people read it? If I opened a business would people buy my product? We sometimes create all these filters and excuses before even doing the ground work to even start it.

I want to challenge you. If you are someone who deals with overthinking. I want you to simply rearrange the words. When you do this, you get Think Over. Simply think over it and make a decision and move. Check to make sure you are not simply holding yourself back because of fear of failure. What’s so beautiful about life and starting something fresh and new is that we don’t know that outcome. Do you think Steve Jobs knew how big and Great his company Apple would be from his startup in a garage? Even if you have to do it scared and it don’t work, at least you would know where to go from there. You won’t find out by thinking yourself out from starting or taking on a project. Let’s Think Over it and get working!

Encouragement: Start Right NOW, Don’t Wait

Happy Wednesday to all who will read and thank you so much if you are a returning reader. I received so much feedback from my last blog, and honestly it was the peak of the year for the amount of readers. So I want to say thank you for taking the time to read my Blog.

Every year towards the end of the year we all go into panic mode, well at least I do. We say oh yeah, I was suppose do this or that this year and never got to it. So, I’ll just wait until next year to start. I want to tell you firsthand, you’re doing it wrong. Chances are you’re not going to do in the new year. I’m always reminded how the bible says God gives us  “new” mercies everyday. If you break that down it really means that yesterday is gone and in the past and that today and future are brand spankin new days that you use to start or make a change. I was always writing down a list for the new year. Pause… There’s nothing wrong with planning things to do for the year at all. We make vision boards and such, but even in those plans, you don’t have to wait until the calendar says 2020 you can actually start those things now. They say it takes 21 days to create habit. If you wait for January 1 to start going back to the gym and by the 17th you’ve skipped twice then chances are you’re not going to complete the goal within the 21 days because the habit hasn’t been created yet.

START NOW! I notice on my walk with Christ that I must constantly speak his word over me and over and over and over. It’s the same word but if I create the habit of it then the bad habit or lack of confession will leave. This is exactly what we must start doing. You want the business? Start now. Want to go back to school? Start applying and looking now. Read my last blog about creating the moment and stop waiting for the right and perfect time because it won’t come.

So I want to leave you with this. Start Now so that when you walk into 2020 you will already be doing what you want and mastering your goals.

Be Blessed everyone, Let’s grind and get it!

 

Truth is, There Will Never be a Perfect Time

Hey Family, I pray that you are all well and are living your best life unashamed. Let’s Dive into this!

Last weekend I took a trip to Arizona to visit my Father for his birthday. I wanted it to be a surprise but I didn’t want to show up and get surprised that he was out of town or something, so I figured I better tell him that i was coming . He had been asking me for sometime to come and visit, come visit , and come to Arizona. My response was ok I’m going to come, or yeah after I get this done or after this over that. If I can remember from the first time I said I was coming, 2 years had passed and gone away. So the idea got dropped on me 2 weeks coming up to his birthday that I should go and visit. Mind you, I just bought a house, still buying furniture and still trying to replenish my monies from all the above. I think that was the main reason why I kept pushing it off because I wanted to have the ample money, I wanted to have ample PTO to take the time off and I really wanted to have it all planned out in a way that I knew I was good.

See that’s just the think with us over thinkers and creatives. We want the timing to be perfect and everything to be right. I begin to take inventory of my life and me and my dad’s relationship. He moved to AZ about 9 years ago and I had visited him 7 years ago. My dad turned 71 on last Friday and I’m 30 and honestly I don’t know how much time we have on this earth being on his side or my side.

So I took a leap of Faith and booked the flight Scared lol because I wanted it to be right and I wanted to be comfortable. Well let me tell you how comfortable I was. I only paid 11 bucks for the flight (taxes and fees) because I had enough Points to buy a round trip ticket 🙌🏾 and to top it off my mom called and told me that she wanted to give me some money for my trip 🙌🏾🙌🏾 the Provision was totally made! All I needed was the leap of Faith of stepping out and saying I’m going to do this, not sure how it’s going to go down but I’m going to do it.

So here’s the lesson. Stop looking for the perfect moment and create one. Literally, create the moment and stop holding off until when you think is the perfect time. This is what God wants us to do. He wants us to walk by Faith and not by Sight. I could had easily put the trip off and said not right now, but until I said yeah, I’m going to do this, the provision was made for it to happen.

Stop looking for “Perfect Time”

Perfect: Having all the required or Desirable elements, qualities or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be

Time: The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as whole.

I want to encourage you to step out and go with it BLIND, God will bring the Provision and get you to the Finish Line.

Be Blessed
