The final frontier.
These are the voyages of the Family Niles….
Its permanent mission: to explore strange new teenagers; to seek out new life and new ways of living; to boldly go where no one in their right mind has gone before. (cue Star Trek theme song…)
OK, so that might be a little bit extreme (and a little lame), but yeah. Life is happening, people. My head is spinning.
We’re stepping into a season where God is proving his faithfulness and where we’ll need to rely on that more than ever. Changes are facing us on every front. And while all of them will ultimately end well, managing them and finding the new harmony are going to take a lot of attention.
Some of these changes relate to some great opportunities for my dream, and they are going to take a lot of focus.
Some of them have to do with family schedule and focus, which always must be top priority.
And…I leave for Guatemala on Saturday morning!
As I’m starting a week that’s going to be insanely busy, I caught a post from my friend and mentor Jeff Goins about the importance of making space for creativity to happen. He reminded me that busy is not a good problem to have.
Mental clutter blocks creativity. (click here to tweet that.)
Because busy is bad, I’m going to be making some changes to the blog for the next month or so:
- You’ll be seeing a few more guest posts from friends that I respect and admire (starting with a great one tomorrow).
- I’ll be posting even more randomly…some more short posts, maybe sharing some photos, or poems, or just amusing thoughts.
- Every now and then, I’ll be putting together a newsletter with sneak peaks into what’s coming up.
I’m also ramping up to release an short Ebook in the spring, so I’ll be sharing little bits and pieces as that comes together.
All that to say, if you’re not subscribed to receive updates via email, I really would recommend it. It’s super-easy, you won’t miss anything, AND you’ll also get a free copy of my first eBook about perseverence as you chase a dream of your own (and about how important it is to take care of yourself when you hit the wall).
