For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
Determining your priorities can be a tricky thing. It can deplete you and leave you feeling burned out. In today’s IG stories I share with you a few thoughts on how to align your priorities with God. If you cannot find today’s IG story it’s under the tab wisdom on @reynamorrisco. Let me know your thoughts, what do you have a challenge with when it comes to prioritizing?
I’ve been MIA this week because I’ve been feeling exhausted, burned out, out of sorts. Whenever I feel this way I want to give up on my endeavors. I ask myself why even bother trying to build something when I don’t see results. Being a mom of two, a wife, working part time remotely and building my side businesses it and dealing with covid can be a lot. I often have to discern who needs my time and energy. This week I needed time to myself, time to unplug and shower myself with lots of grace. Can I remind you, It’s okay not to have it all together. It’s okay not to have your house in order all the time. It’s okay to take a break. To not post on social or scroll. It’s okay to take time to recharge. You don’t have to explain to anyone. Only you know what your body needs. I needed some quiet time. A hot bath. To dry brush. To light a candle. To listen to Carrie Underwood’s new Christmas album. To make me a gingerbread tea. To read my bible. To write in my journal. To stop striving. And most importantly To rest in His abiding presence. He renews my spirits, sparks the light within me.
✨ Last week I had to change scenery so I went to @craftworkcoffeeco to finish up my work. What was I doing I was styling clients. ☺️ Yes! I work part time as a fashion stylist. I also design jewelry, I lifecoach and I’m a self-published author. My name is Reyna I’m a multi creative and I’m no longer hiding or apologizing for the gifts God gave me. I do a collective of things to bring in passive income and so I can have flexibility with my schedule. Why? Because I want to focus on what matters most to me and that is my family 👨👩👧👧. So a 9-5 job is not my cup of tea ☕️. Which is why I decided to take a risk a couple years ago and be an entrepreneur #mompreneur. Being an entrepreneur means you are a risk-taker. Money isn’t always coming in, and times can be quiet when there isn’t much movement, then there are days when everything just seems to be aligning and you know that you were created for this! 🙏🏽🌈 ✨ Keep believing in yourself. Thank God for the gifts He gave you! To all my multi-creatives stop apologizing! Use your gifts to stir up this world, and to bring light to your life and the life of others. Live your best life!
A dream of minecoming to fruition—8years thinking about it, planning it out in my head.
Finally I got the courage to step out, write it and commit to the process.
Why did it take so long? Fear, doubt, limiting beliefs, not consistent, and no discipline.
Finally 1 week before covid happened I heard It in my spirit it’s time to write no more playing around reyna. If you want this dream you have to go after it afraid. Then the covid stayhome order happened. So I knew it was really time, no more excuses.
So I called a few people (an author friend that is experienced in the writing process @matildabelleproductions , another life coach other than myself @sheis_fulfilled , and accountability partners @graham.becca ) to tell them I need accountability in the writing process.
I wanted to honor myself and commit to my dream. It took work, sacrifice, dedication, and courage!
Every week I talked to them to check in. It kept me faithful to the process. It took 8 months to get to the final steps. Now we are a few weeks from launch date.
So get ready this book is filled with courage, hope, faith and freedom. It is a devotional, love letters from God that will set you free from your hurts, habits and fears. A book that will be life transforming and lead you to the abundant life God has for you!
