Start Now

Fall is here! IMG_7392

The weather is cooler, crisp, feels clean…reminding me that winter is around the corner! If you are from Minnesota you know that winters here can be long. COLD. Sometimes a bit gloomy and depressing, but the beauty of a fresh snow as it sparkles in the sunlight is hard to beat!

You can find beauty even in the frigid temps. It’s all around.

What does this have to do with my post today?

Everything. Has a season.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens

No matter where we are at in our lives I guarantee we are going through one of the seasons…maybe you are going through a season of searching, or giving up. Maybe it is a season of laughter, or a time of weeping. A time to love, a time to hate.

A time for everything.

My point:

You will always be going through something. Good or bad. There is not a perfect moment when you will be ready to start pursuing your new dream, completing a daunting task, or perhaps writing that blog you’ve wanted to start (YES, it has been almost 8 months since my first and only post on this site!)

The struggles are real. Our lives are nothing short of chaotic and so very hard somedays. We have families, deadlines, duties, and honestly the days seem to run together most of the time… until I realize I’ve spent the last half of my year on auto pilot.

The best time to start…well the only time to start, is NOW.

The path that leads to where we need to be is full of obstacles. There are a million reasons why we could say no. Should say no. Put it off for a “better” time. But if you can find your reason WHY…

DO IT.

Your dreams are not going to wait for you forever. There is a role ready for you to fill. Do it now, before God assigns it to someone else.

But what am I supposed to do with my life? I want to give it more meaning!

You know what it is. You feel it when you bring yourself to the present moment and allow your mental chatter to drift away. It’s that tug, the pull you feel, its magnetic…FOLLOW IT. Open your eyes and see the extraordinary around you. A life of depth can be found in the present moment.

Take a step. Even if it’s a small one. Miles are walked by putting one foot in front of the other. With every step leave behind your insecurities and fears. This is a journey. Not a race. The only competitor is you. There is room for growth, become greater than you are today. Step out of your habits.

HOW?

Do one thing today that your future self will thank you for.

Do this every day and you will look back and realize that the BIG things in your life are simply achieved by a sum of all your small steps.

What is your why? I encourage you to take a step INTO it, point yourself in the right direction…even if it means turning around.  Do it NOW. Be Brave.

Today is all we ever have.

Take Care and God Bless,

Elizabeth

Hi, I'm Elizabeth Rose! I started this blog as I journeyed t0 finding myself through the experiences of my life. In 2018, I quit my job, moved into a camper with my husband, 3 boys, bulldog and began homeschooling my children. I did this to keep my family together as my husband traveled for his job. My goal was to create a family centered life. I found myself more alone that I had ever been and discovered what I had been avoiding for the last decade. My marriage and the life I had built was killing me, at an exceedingly alarming rate. I had exhausted myself and all the resources I had left in me. I took a long absence from my blog in 2019, it was a year of great changes as I navigated a painful divorce. This blog is about my journey. I share my pain with you and how I am discovering the life I am meant to live. A life I feel I truly belong in. A life of abundance that only can come from within. There is no denying the feeling I get from aligning with my highest self. My goal at, A Family Centered Life, is to continue to bring my awareness and intention into creating and enjoying the moments of my life. I choose to be honest and vulnerable, sharing my insights, emotions, with the hope that others find the connection and support to keep moving forward in their own life. Just as I longed for all of those years as I lived a happy life displayed on the outside, but one filled with internal pain and suffering. I continue to become my truest version by replacing perfection and performance with balance and intention. I found the courage to find the key and unlock the cage I was in, I know you can too. The road is not easy, but it is full of depth, grace, humility, and love. Wild and Free, Elizabeth Rose
