Get Up, Try Again


Hello! It’s a new year, and with the New Year, New Year resolutions! One of my resolutions is to write and share on this blog. Why have I been so quiet for so long? A few reasons:

  1. I had a baby, and thus, less leisure time. I can’t seem to organize my time like I want to.
  2. My self-confidence has suffered. Most of the time, I feel like I have no idea what I am doing, and don’t have the confidence to share anything.
  3. I haven’t been inspired. (maybe due to stress, exhaustion, etc.)

But. Like I said. It’s a new year.

I feel like things are changing. Maybe my circumstances aren’t changing, but my attitude is. I’m ready to share again whether I feel confident or not, because the truth is, I will never have all the answers. And when I do think I have finally found the answer, everything changes and I’m out there again, feeling out of control, and looking for the answer.

My motto is to never stop.

I feel like I fail at a lot of the things I attempt to do, but I always get back up. Sometimes I feel like that person in a foot race who keeps on tripping, but keeps getting back up and running her best. (Proverbs 24:16) I want to be that person in the lead. I want to be that perfect house wife. That perfect mom. Yes, even that perfect blogger and artist. At this moment, however, maybe it’s God’s plan to stretch me and train me. Maybe it’s not so important that I feel successful, but more important that I desire to improve, and to do it God’s way.

So if you have stumbled this year—if you are seeing others run past you, accomplishing their goals while you are still at the start line—get up and run on. Don’t hang your head. Don’t give up on being your best. Don’t throw your worthy goals out the window.

Pray, ask for courage, ask for wisdom, ask for focus and vision. Then get up and learn from your mistakes. Maybe you need to adjust your goals to align with God’s will for your life. Maybe you need to cast of some things that are hindering you. (Hebrews 12:1) Maybe you just need to get up and try again.

May God be with you this year!
