Choices! Choices!

Choosing between good and evil is rarely difficult. The struggle invariably lies in choosing between the good and the best.   Yesterday I made that difficult choice.  I chose to resign my volunteer position as a Girl Guides leader.

My friends know that I am passionate about equipping and empowering girls to walk in their power as beloved daughters of God.  I am intensely motivated to raise up the next generation of girls as leaders who change our world.  Girl Guides meets that objective.

However, I realized that I had overextended myself again and was heading towards burn out.  Over the weekend I saw my spiritual director who commented that I looked quite exhausted.  She was right!  At that moment I knew that it was time to make a change.  So yesterday I deliberately stepped down from my position at Girl Guides.   

I was amazed at my emotional response. I didn’t feel guilty, nor wanted to belittle myself with self-deprecating thoughts.   In fact, I felt relieved – a weight has been lifted off my shoulder.

This morning creative ideas began flowing – new strategies on ways to grow my business.  Original thoughts about potential speaking engagements are spontaneously emerging.   My desire to become a motivational speaker has intensified.

This experience undoubtedly confirms my belief that giving up what is good ultimately creates space for the unfolding of what is best.   So today don’t just settle for what is good.  Hit the bull’s eye.  Choose the best!!

Curious about the online business that I’ve chosen? Check this out!
