The Next Right Thing

I’m starting to have an awareness, knowing what the next right thing to do and pulling the trigger and actually doing it are two different things. I also am beginning to understand how not acting on the next right thing causes us to be very discontented and down on ourselves.

So, what is the next right thing? I don’t know, it is probably different for each of us. For some it is that one person you know you need to make things right with. For others it is finally going to the gym we joined on New Year’s Day. I can’t answer that for you, but for me it is finally becoming open to whatever it is I’m resisting the most.

What if what I need the most, I resist the hardest? I am intentionally looking at those things I’ve resisted and embracing them instead. For example, I don’t like a lot of structure, I like winging it. But, what if what I resist (Structure) I need to be more successful at what I do? By embracing what I once resisted, I will grow to become a more complete person.

Take a peek under the hood and see what is stirring in your mind. What is something that continually pops up you know you could do something about but keep putting off? Its time to pull the trigger. Move from your mind into action. Do the next right thing. Keep doing the next right thing and watch your life blossom!

The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
