I've been thinking lately that I've been working too hard, and it's making me proud. :(
As breadwinner (by choice), I've a lot of responsibilities. I welcome them because nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing my loved ones happy. However, more responsibilities mean I have to earn a certain amount. I work hard to earn beyond this target, work so hard that I forget it's not about what I can do.
You know how, when Manny Pacquiao's always asked about his accomplishments, he always say it's because of God? I believe that's true. I believe my work is because of His grace but because I work so hard and worry so much, I end up feeling like it's all up to ME. When it's not.
Whatever I accomplish now is because of God and I need to remember how NOT to worry. Worry is one of Satan's tools because it makes you focus inwardly and doubt God's plans for you.
And it's funny really, but where I am now is so much better than where I was before and yet I realize I worry more today than I used to. It's because I feel I have more to lose when in actuality, nothing's different. Everything I had or have is God letting me be a steward of His blessings so really, nothing's changed.
I pray to God that through this post I may be free of worry and re-learn humility. I hope that you - and I'm still surprised whenever I find out people read this part of my site haha - will not make the same mistakes I've made.
Trust in God's plans. Cease your worries. :)
P.S. Also, listen to your editor when she tells you to stop worrying. :P It's another kind of worry altogether, but still.,
