Sometimes, it is a good idea to take a step back from your life and see where you are. I have recently been pushed into having to do this in my own life, and even though it has been a difficult situation, I am absolutely in love with how my life has been shaped and where my life is headed.
There are a few things that I have done to have helped with my personal self re-discovery. First of all, I deleted Facebook. Even though I am a huge fan of Social Media and even though I have been Tweeting more than ever, I am happy to have shut off one way of communication in my life.
Why am I happy I shut off Facebook? Well, in the past week or so since it has been deleted, I have realized who really wants to contact me and who I really want to contact. Now, I do miss some people and have logged back in to get into contact with them, I have also found the people in my life who honestly do care about me. While I am thinking I will be back on Facebook at some point in my life, I am loving the freedom of worrying about other people’s lives. I first and foremost need to be focusing on myself and what I need.
The other thing I have started doing is an on-line Bible study that my friend Dawn started and I stumbled upon. I was a little leery of beginning; was this really something I wanted to start? Was this something I would find beneficial? I started day one today, and am already on day nine. Ooops. It is okay to work at your own speed, the writer even said so, but each devotional has been speaking to me. I am learning that it is crucial for myself to stop and look around. I must start living in today. I must stop planning for the distant future when I need to start planning for today. It has been a blessing for me to find this, and I cannot thank Dawn enough for starting this amazing soul detox and letting me find it.

I am keeping towards my goal of being great. A great friend, a great person, a great librarian, a great love. Continue on towards your own personal goals of greatness. If you have a secret way in which you find greatness, feel free to share!
