I am in the midst of what I think is a rare opportunity: a chance to redesign my life.
By moving across the country, many parts of my life were deconstructed:
- My job
- My friendships
- My kids’ schools & the roles I played in them
- My personal ministry
At first, this led to an identity crisis. By my 3rd month away from my old life, I felt pretty lost & depressed.
But now I’m coming to a place of embracing this rare opportunity.
Who do I want to be here, in my new life? What do I want to spend time on?
These are big questions.
They are important because they determine how my priorities are lived out over the next year(s).
So this week I took my first step to stop letting these questions be answered by default…. by whatever activities automatically fill my time.
Step 1: Make a list of everything currently in my life, and everything I want to be a part of my life.
Now onto Step 2: Deciding what goes so the important stuff can take priority!
