Deliberately focusing on faith, family, writing, business and health {Day 1}

I wonder where I will be 31 days from now?  These next 31 days will be intense as I will focus like I never have before on things that are important to me.  Things that I usually just push to the side and say that I will get another day.

You see I'm a homeschool mom.  I blog for two blogs (both blogs are participating in the challenge--don't know if it is called a challenge, but it's one for me).  The topics are very different.  Not only that, but I just moved and still have so much to put away, and I'm trying to get my online business off the ground.  Not to mention that I now have kids, a husband, and a business partner. Oh, yeah, I forgot all about my ladies . . . I am a leader for the (in)courage group Gateway to Joy.

I like what the Nester titled her last writing challenge: Home.  By choice.

That's me.  I've been home by choice for 19 years.  I still want to be home, but I want to generate an income from my home.  I'm ready to be independent without being independent.  Do you understand that?  I think most of you visiting here are somewhat like minded, so you know exactly what I mean by that.

You know that I'm not trying to put God's order down, nor my husband.

I want to use my God given talents to create.  I love writing and I love art . . . I want to make something happen with the things that I've been putting on hold...holding back for the sake of . . .

Not only that I want to focus on my health the diet I do pretty good, but the exercise.  I have not been faithful in years.  I just started back swimming, but for the next 31 days I am going to swim and do beautiful ballet, and practice on a lot of art work, and healthy cooking recipes, smoothies and the like.  And I am even going to get out of my comfort zone and share some of my work with you just because. Because I'm working on change.

I solicit your prayers because I know I will get tired, frustrated, discourage and want to give up.  But I can't.  I'm looking for change.  I want to change but if I give in to the least of these and not write, I will have let them succeed.  So pray for me please.

I hope you enjoy seeing the butterfly that emerges after 31 days.
