Its actually been more than 2 weeks since I’ve made a substantial blog post – my apologies. I’ve been swamped with work, travel, graduations etc… I’ll stop making excuses and dive straight in. Plus there’s a giveaway at the end 😉
Quick Background Story:
At the beginning of this year I started a journey called #EatPrayHustle based on a 20-day devotional by Havilah Cunnington. This devotional was about “dream chasing God’s way” – basically teaching you how to discover, cultivate and nurture your God-given dream. I undertook this adventure because I found myself stuck at a crossroad. I’m in my final year of university and I felt as though a curve ball was thrown at me – my original plan was to go onto medical school and become a doctor but I felt as though my passion to pursue medicine was depleted. I began to question whether that was the career for me or something imposed on me and why I chose to pursue medicine in the first place. This wasn’t just a random phase I’ve been thinking about this since July! and still no conclusion was drawn.
Those that know me, know that I can be indecisive but it’s only because I’m a perfectionist and I like to be certain that I know that I know that I know. Whatever decision I make has to be reasonable and well thought out. I’m not about the YOLO lifestyle.
So what’s the verdict?
*Drum roll please*
Honestly…I’m still not entirely sure. This study mainly helped me understand the attributes of my dream. The study is split into 4 sections
- Dream Life
- Dream Revealed
- Dream Death
- Dream Fulfilled
It honestly was like well needed therapy – it even got emotional.
This study took away the pressure of knowing everything now. It reminded me of the process of dream chasing and the importance of being present in the journey and partnering with God. Mostly it gave me hope again!
So do I want to study medicine? I think so… I feel as though God can use any career path that I choose – nothing is written in stone. Kris Vallotton said something that best articulates my new ideaology
“I believe without a shadow of a doubt that God has a purpose for every single person on the planet, but I do not believe He has a plan. What I mean by that is God has called each and every one of us to fulfill a particular role in the context of history, and there are 1001 ways He can get us there. Instead of a singular, pre-mapped path to your final destination, it’s a little bit more like a “choose your own adventure” story. “
-Kris Vallotton – 5 keys to preparing for your destiny
In my previous post, my biggest fear was making the wrong decision when there is no wrong answer. I thought the decision I made could limit God’s use for my life.
Another big thing this study really highlighted was my fear of failure. I knew it was there but I chose to ignore it. This was my ideaology – if I don’t try my best and I fail then I can always say that I failed because I didn’t try my best.
Yeah I know that is such a stupid mindset. I was basically afraid of giving it my all because my all may not be good enough.
The lies we partner with….
I think quite a few people can relate to this, but one thing that is helping me overcome this fear is spending time with God and learning to accept that
Success is peace of mind – a direct result of self satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming. 💋👊
There are many other things this study has exposed about me and taught me, but for the sake of not writing a book I’ll leave it here.
So I love sharing what I learn and I love giving gifts. So for the first time ever! I’m doing a giveaway of the #EatPrayHustle book
AND a personalised Faithfully Me journal for you to write your reflections and thoughts from what you’ve learnt or to use for something else.
I just hope this book can help someone the way it helped me 🙂
