31 Days of Change

the nester

Ready for some change?  Well, hmm, that depends.  My personality isn't usually interested in change.  I  find I'm most comfortable when I know what's happening, so I don't generally like surprises.  I like to have a plan and not have to deviate from it.  But, life doesn't go that way and often I have to change whether I like it or not.  But, then, there's other times when things I've been doing or situations I'm dealing with that are just. not. working!   Then, I long for things to change but, I don't always know how or even have the energy to figure it out and I lose my peace.

So, that's where I find myself.  On one hand I've been through experiences, like when the doctor tells you words you never want to hear or when your husband comes home early from work---fired, and have learned to trust God and walk in peace no matter what it looked like.  Even going through all that (and more) having gained a peace that was beyond understanding, I still have other areas, lots of which aren't nearly as "big deal" as those I just mentioned, where I'm learning.  You know, the day-to-day stuff. Well, instead of continuing to be overwhelmed, which may lead to crawling into a cocoon in the middle of my bed, I thought I'd take the challenge to make real change in 31 days.  

So, I'm joining the popular blogger, The Nester for this challenge of picking one topic and blogging about it for 31 days straight.  

My topic for the 31 days is...
 Seeking Peace in the Midst of the Mess

I'm taking this time to go through and make the much needed changes while applying and sharing some of the things I've learned as I went through some of those "big deal" things.  I figured if I could go through the threat of losing a baby and a hubby suddenly without a job in peace, then I should be able to tackle the clutter in my life!

So, join me back here on Saturday October 1st for my kick-off post and read more about what to expect from me over the 31 days.

  I'd love to hear from you in the comments. :)
Are you in need of change?  How do you feel about change?
