Build the Life You Want

Something I find really exciting about life is that we have the power to build it the way we want. I think a lot of times people feel like a victim of their circumstances and they get stuck there for years and years and years. You're not stuck. A) Figure out the life you want; B) Draw the plans; C) Then execute – build it. 

I know the life I want. I have the blueprint and materials in hand. I'm in the building phase. As Mel Robbins likes to say, "There's a brick path between where you are right now and all the dreams and happiness you deserve. You pave that brick path one brick at a time. One day at a time." With every passing day, I move the needle forward and it's so so exciting. In my mind, I see myself sitting at a potter's wheel, molding and shaping my life into what I want it to be. 

Your choices, decisions, actions, and mindset – they all work together to create the life you want. What a blessing and privilege to have the power of choice. Not everyone has that, I'm aware. If you do – use it, take full advantage. 

I feel like God is looking down at me saying, "Marcy, I gave you a gift and a desire. Now go! I gave you all the tools you need to make the life you want. Go, child, build it how you want it and enjoy." I heard Bishop T.D. Jakes once say, "God never made a chair. He made a tree, and the rest of it was up to us. When God hands you a tree, imagine what it could be."

It's so beautiful. The idea that God gives us all the tools and it's up to us what we do with them. When you hear people say, "It's finding joy in the journey, not the destination," that's it! It's waking up early on a Tuesday morning before the sun rises to lay down that brick, spread some mortar, and lay down another brick. There's joy in that. There's joy in those mornings. There's joy in hard work. 

It's taken me 2 years to lay the foundation. It sounds like a lot for a little, but it's not. There's been so much joy in those 2 years – a lot of hard work, early mornings, late nights, and everything in between, but what a blessing. The growth I've experienced personally and professionally is invaluable. I'm ready to start building walls and could not be happier. I'm taking all of the tools, gifts, desires, mindset, and abilities that God gave me and I'm off to the races – building the life I want, brick by brick. ♡
