Accept your vision, make a plan

The truth of acceptance isn’t cynical, it is the soul igniting the truth of what it is and what it could be


It’s crazy because when I first decided to move to DC, I had the vision but I didn’t have a plan. I knew what lifestyle I desire, I knew what type of work I was willing to do and I knew I wanted to make my business Self Care Lifestyle more than a side hustle (which it isn't) but my main sort of income. Moving back in with my mom, I was desperate to figure it out quickly; That desperation started to make me unhappy because I didn’t know how it was going to happen, but I knew if I focus on my skills the how will come into fruition. Then it hit me, a vision is just a vision, the plan is the blueprint. The driving factor that led me into so much turmoil was accepting the unknown. Acceptance for me felt like I settled, it felt like failure, it felt like it was determined on my worth, it felt uneasy and definitely uncomfortable. In order to fulfill my soul I stop trying to force the unknown, but accept it. I realized acceptance is a sacrifice because of the value it costs; value in God, value in me, value in lifestyle, value in relationships and value in purpose. I went back to my vision and determined the value by doing what the Lord said in Habakkuk 2:2-3. Moving in the spirit has taught me who you are is rooted in your now and the blueprint for acceptance is solitude, stillness & surrender. Your now is the presence of your standards, values, purpose and character. When you accept your blueprint it allows you to prepare for S.M.A.R.T Goals; specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time. I’m committing to the process and not the outcome because in due time the ‘doing’ is where the power of my journey revives. I’m honoring the power in the process. I’m valuing the pain in the purpose. I’m rooting for the struggles of the successors. The truth of acceptance isn’t cynical, it is the soul igniting the truth of what it is and what it could be. PeriodT
