When something is no longer serving you well, when it’s draining you emotionally, mentally, physically and financially, it maybe time to bid that thing a fair adieu—a fair farewell.
Sometimes a business, a relationship, a job runs its course but we hold on to it far past its expiration date and again, that usually ends up biting you in the butt.
Here’s what we normally don’t realize when we’re holding on so tightly to something that’s stopped working for us—we don’t have the time or energy to pursue the things that could serve us well. We’re so tired and drained that we just start to exist and stop living full lives.
Sometimes industries change and if you’re not willing to change with it you’ll find yourself frustrated and broke—spiritually and financially.
That’s where I was; stuck in an industry that once brought me great joy but changed over the decades and caused a great deal of sighing and eye rolling.
When you find yourself in this place, it’s time to reevaluate.
I love how God allows you to do you, do what you want to do until you get absolutely sick of it and you’re screaming for change.
Yep, that’s when it time to call it quits.
That’s your moment of surrender.
