Gratitude Journey - Week 2 - Current Struggle


Right now my current struggle is my purpose. I feel like we are all here for a reason to leave it better than what we found it. But I have really been struggling on my purpose. I just feel like there is more to life than working with little passion, paying bills, and the dying.

I try not to compare myself to people on social media or in general because most of the time we are only seeing a glimpse and not the whole truth. But some people just have their whole life together and I'm over here going to bed at 9pm because I am bored and nothing else to do.

I see people knowing their passion, a mission statement for life, and living life with so much joy. I am so happy for them but I feel sadness for myself because I want that for my life.

But another current struggle is on the job front. We are settled in Modesto, but now it's time for me to get a job. I filled out over 50 job applications and dropped off 20 in person. This week I have had some interviews but no offers yet. So fingers crossed I hear something soon.

What is your current struggle?


P.S. Don't forget to use the hashtag #thefggratitudejourney.

The Contentment Challenge - November - Final Month

This is the last month of the Contentment Challenge. To be 100% honest with you. I have FAILED miserably. October was a tough month. I didn't work on anything towards the past few months. You can out of sight out of mind.

The move from Washington to California was the biggest thing on our mind. We spent a lot of time trying to find a place to live, things for Heisman, job searching for me, telling bosses. You know all the usual things when moving.

Even though this is the last month of The Contentment Challenge I will continue with the Gratitude Journey that started November 1st.

THEME: Intentional

VERSE: 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness

TASK:  Great over Good. My favorite pastor did a sermon series called Better. The overwhelming theme was choosing activities that were great over good. Really thinking about what we say yes to.
