New Beginnings

Have you ever been at a crossroad of something new and exciting? Overwhelmed with all the swirling ideas in your head. There has been something possibly in the works for a long time for me. I've been playing around with some ideas. I'm thinking now might be the best time to do it. 
We are living in strange times right now. We are realizing now more than ever that life is too short to not go after your dreams. I like many of you got stuck in 2020. 
We had just moved to a new city, new state and within a month everything was shut down and we were stuck in a house being bored. We had nothing to do but dive into our hobbies maybe? I had all these plans and ideas. Finish all the books on my book list. I ended up reading a finishing two books and not getting through the third before returning it to the library. I wanted to get my DIY projects done. I got ONE done. I wanted to learn all the dances from the 90s and early 2000's music videos. SURPRISE again didn't get any of that done. I did write and record a few songs which was great!

In fact a lot of the time ended up being soul searching. Which I have already blogged about so I won't bore you with it again. I think 2020 was necessary for growth. Being self aware even if it's painful can be so beneficial. It's obviously just the beginning a lot of healing needs to happen. By the mental health journey is so great and so important. I feel the more you talk about things and bring them out into the open you can learn from it, change from it, embrace it, and move forward with your life. 
All of these great and sometimes hard things have now lead me this crossroads. The next chapter in my life, in our lives. What does the next five to ten years look like? We've been diving in deep to the planning. Soaking up all the financial advice from Dave Ramsey's network. Planning not only for us but our kids futures. Even more than we have before. Now that we have crossed those things off our list it's time to move onto the next. 
I don't want to give too much away because we are doing our research and going over the details and praying about it. We want to make sure this is a good next step for us. 
With that said to be continued...
I will leave you with this though. Don't let fear rule over you. There will always be some apprehension on any life decision. But if God is in it then you know you are on the right path. 
I have confidence that it will be great. 
 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~ Philippians 4:6-7 
“Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.” ~ John 14:27
