Life calls for putting in the work


Life always calls for me to put in the work

Take for instance:

For my spirit;
I need to have faith in God
Constantly pray
Stay in obedience to what God says
Study the promises of God
Love God and His people…

For my job;
I need to manage time well
Meet the set targets
Stay on top of commitments
Grow my skills set
Deliver the desired or better results
Be willing to help others
Communicate effectively

For my homestead;
I need to put up/ find a proper shelter
Provide food and other basic needs
Clean the house and make repairs regularly
Advocate for and live in peace

For my relationship;
I need to create time for my significant other.
Prioritize communication and openness
Show up for each other both in good and bad times
Pray, encourage and advice each other Honor, Trust and respect each other fully

For my mind;
I need to keep thinking healthy ideas as opposed to harmful ones.
Schedule time for myself.
Unplug from technology.
Read more literature to learn more.
Engage in healthy conversations.
Find therapeutic activities that reenergize my mind and do them.

For my health;
You need to eat and think right
Do physical body exercises
Avoid abusing drugs and alcohol
Sleep regularly and on time
Practice good hygiene

#And I believe the same applies to other people in one way or another.

Therefore, on this course of life I have come to believe the truth that something has to be done for growth to manifest. Whether physically or not, I need to get working!

I need to stretch my mind and watch myself move from a lower point to a higher point. Right there is what they call #Growth.

So my dear friend, get up and get working. Work is not tied to a job.
Find something productive to work on or at as you wait for better opportunities
