This is the week we were scheduled to be listing the #fanchonflip house… but we are not going to be hitting that goal. It’s hard when reality doesn’t meet expectations. There can be disappointment, frustration and disillusionment. I have definitely felt all of those things in the context of this flip house. .
But, as @jacobbjerk lovingly reminded me, what is 2 or 3 more weeks in the context of achieving your dreams? Expectations are a mindset, that’s it. And mindsets can be changed with perspective. Here are some thoughts that I keep at the front of my mind to help me gain perspective when I am sitting in drywall dust at 9pm each night:
No matter what, God is good! This is a hardship, but it’s also a true blessing and opportunity. One more day to build a future is a worthwhile sacrifice. This is a season, it’s not forever. .
What do you remind yourself to gain perspective on the tough days?
