What Saying "Yes" Can Look Like- Part 1 Chasing Kite Tails

I think I’ve mentioned a few times about how I’ve been on this journey of saying “yes” to God, to life, to opportunities. Well there’s been a lot going on for me and I thought I would spend some time this week by sharing some examples of what saying “yes” can look like.

A lot of what’s been developing in my life has kind of been happening simultaneously so Part 1 isn’t exactly the beginning but it’s where I’ll start. I will attempt to share a part of my story with you but it won’t all be chronological and there are many characters and plots involved that I just can’t cover EVERYTHING, but I think you’ll get the picture. Join me. . .

Part One-Chasing Kite Tails

The Kite Project

A little over a month ago I “met” the lovely Rae Brown. We’re actually in a Facebook group together but I’ll share the details on that later on. Well she posted some info about this Kite Project she was doing on her blog and I decided to check it out. The goal was to start a group of “dreamers”; a movement of dreams. 20+ women signed up to work toward accomplishing a dream/goal by September.

Naturally, being one to eagerly sign up for just about anything I said YES, sign me up!  I saw this as a great opportunity for some accountability. I have many, many goals and projects that I would love to work on but have a hard time getting started and an even harder time finishing (yes, weakness).

Yup, that’s me with my “goal”, you can click here to see all the goals

So I just took a very simple goal that I’ve had, to start and finish a quilt by September. See I like quilting. A Lot. I’m not quite to the point where I can say I love it because it’s hard sometimes (but I do kinda love it :). The problem is that I’ve started many quit projects but don’t seem be able to finish them because I get distracted, busy, tired, etc.

But I thought this is a perfect opportunity to do something I’ve been meaning to do for a while anyway and I’ll get some encouragement along the way AND I’ll get this cute little kite from Rae at the end. And I thought that was it.

Of course when I think “and that’s it”. . . God often has plans that are bigger than what I’m thinking so basically things have kind of come together in a way that has led to something more than just I’m going to make and finish a quilt by September (although I am still planning on doing that).

But part 2 of the story next time . . .

Friends, are there goals you’ve been putting off for one reason or another? Can I encourage you along the way? I’m hoping to create a mini “kite project” right here, so leave a comment if you’d like some encouragement or accountability or if you’d rather not share publicly, send me an email. I’d be happy to support you on your own journey. Hugs!

    1. Megan, what a great goal! What kinds of changes are you thinking about? Are you on Pinterest yet? Could be a good way to keep track of ideas for things that inspire you. 🙂
