Are You Reactive or Proactive?
This week’s newsletter and podcast episode are nice and related, so I’ll keep it short and sweet up here so you can enjoy the 12 minute episode in its entirety!
Recently, I’ve been feeling so reactive. Instead of planning out my weeks and days, I’m responding to every little interruption. And frankly, it’s been running me into the ground. So this week, I’m recommitting to being proactive. I want to live my life on purpose, and I want to be available for what God needs me to do – which is simply impossible if I’m getting thrown around by the waves of everyone else’s agenda.
Do you find yourself stuck in being reactive? Shoot me an email and let me know how you address it! And go enjoy Episode 44: Proactive or Reactive? wherever you find your podcasts!

This book has been such a gift as I work to revitalize my prayer life! It’s a collection of hundreds of mini reflections on all sorts of things (many pertaining to faith, work, and life!) It’s beautiful fodder for strong meditation. I highly recommend!
