The other day, I was talking to my coworker about me getting sleepy. I told her a story about how my sister heard me snoring even with the door closed, she thought it was my mom but nope, it was me, mom told her that I was really tired.
My coworker laughs and says that’s some good sleep. I said, not if I wake up still tired like I never went to sleep. She then says it’s good to be busy, it really is.
Literally twenty minutes later she says, “Asantee, it’s really good to be busy. That means your life is moving and you are not stuck. Your growing and progressing. That’s really good.” I thought about it and everything I’m doing now is literally benefiting me down the line. It’s not one thing on my to do list that is taking from my growth.
So I said thank you for that.
It’s easy to lose sight on the bigger picture, to lose sight on the end goal. I’m doing an internship in a field that I literally want to do for the rest of my life. School is almost done, dancing again in church which has been my all time favorite, managing at one job, having a second income and the opportunity to talk to you guys.
Few days later I had a talk with a sound/tech guy at the church I’m interning with. He tells me about a story of an artist who is now signed to J.cole and she’s not happy with her life. (In reference to her personal life, not with being signed to his label) I won’t continue talking about that because it’s not my story to tell but he says to me, change your perspective on things. You are further than you think.
At times I feel like I’m not doing enough and sometimes feel like I’m doing too much. With my coworker pointing out to me that I am progressing is cool and then that guy to tell me change my perspective is refreshing. My problem is being busy with the right things in the wrong season. I may need to do one active to further myself but I have to finish one commitment 1st before I move on and make another.
News Flash- God got me. He is not going to give me more than I can handle. But I do need to put Him in the center of it all or else I will go crazy.
“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
