Finish What You Started

Hello everyone. First I would like to apologize for my faithful followers. I have been away for a while and have not written. Why because I just let life and the every day get the best of me. You know really there is no excuse. I need to become one of those people who finish what they start.

I started this blog because I was on fire. I knew I had something to share and I knew that there were people out there just like me. I know a lot of times you can feel like you are on an island all by yourself and no one understands. But there are others who know exactly where you are coming from and can relate but the question is where are they? It seems like why can’t you ever find that someone when you need them or find that one person just to listen and to give you some good Godly counseling when you need it.

I know I am not the only person who has a habit of not finishing what I start. I just look back over my life and I have had so many jobs I can do a little bit of everything. But that comes with not finishing what I started. I am one of those people who likes a challenge and gets bored quick with the same ole routine or I find what ever I am doing to not be as interesting any more or I become complacent or I get what I am doing down pat that it just becomes second thought.

At some point in your life you just get to that point where the light bulb finally goes off and you have that uh huh moment, that epiphany. Let me tell you that comes with a lot of self evaluation. At first I wanted to blame it on being a mother of three under the age of two which includes a set of twins. That can have it own set of challenges and being a mom is a 24 hour a day job. You don’t get a mulligan or a do over so you have to get it right the first time. Being a mother is the single most hardest thing I have ever done in my life. And you have those moments often when you just want Calgon to come and take you away, but it never happens.

Soon you get so distracted when weeks turn into months and months turn into years and you look back and wonder where the time has gone. I know there are several things that I still want to do with my life and I know I have time because I am still fairly young but I have to learn to keep my hand to plow and finish what I started. I know a lot of times and it’s just not me, we are scared of failure and rejection. When something seems to not go right or gets a little tough instead of sticking it out we just give up and move on to the next thing. That’s kind of how a lot of people are in relationships. When the going gets tough we get going. What happened to if at first you don’t succeed try and try again. That’s how we have so many inventions today. I don’t think anybody ever got what they were working towards right on the first try.

With life come those ups, downs, hardships, trials and obstacles but eventually we do have a victory. You may wait so long that it seems like for ever and you wonder when is your victory or breakthrough ever going to come. Trust me it will. Look back and think. Are there things that you have started and not finished, things that you have put down, things that you are afraid of trying? Look you only get one life. Everything may not work out the first time and there will be some failure but don’t let it get you down. Don’t stop, don’t give up, step out on faith. Finish what you started. Remember the race was not given to the fast or the swift but the one who endured to the end.


  1. Hi Mommy of 3, found you at MBC

    I couldn't agree more with you on this. There's also this sense of failure when you don't follow through, i've been guilty of that many times.

    Thanks for the reminder to keep focus pressing towards the goal..

    God Bless

  2. Hi there! I found you through MBC.

    And you are definately not alone in this area...my current unfinished project was started 9 months ago. The mural in my girls' room has been slated to be finished by this weekend's end. (about time!)

    Looking forward to more of your insights and ah-ha's. Be Blessed ~ Tanya

  3. Love it! So, so true. As usual, your post hits close to home for me. Like a lot of people, with the economic downturn, I've felt pidgeon-holed in my job and unable to escape the grips that this place has on me. So, I started interviewing and looking for employment elsewhere. I had two very strong leads and an excellent interview. I knew if they would just meet with me, they'd love me - and they did. The catch was that though they love me, they don't love my hours so much (8a - 4:30p). I was so disappointed that I got rejected because of my hours. They don't love my child they way I love her and I cannot allow someone else to spend an entire day with her teaching her (daycare) and then someone else (MIL, husband, back-up provider) to pick her up everyday and spend more time with her until I get there. No way. Doesn't work for me. I'd be, essentially, a weekend Mom. So, I decided to stay put. I prayed on it. My husband actually prayed on it as well and I finally was at peace with the fact that it's not for me to move right now. How this ties into your post is because my passion, my goal, and the thing I left on hold while life was happening was to finish my degree in speech/language pathology. I have 27 credits left undergrad and then I have to complete my master's degree before I can practice. It's a "do-able" goal and I'm still fairly young where it shouldn't be a problem. So, my prayers have changed and finally, I feel more at peace with how and where God is moving me as an individual and us a family. I'm definitely going to finish what I start. See you at the finish line, Mommy of 3! :)

  4. Hi there. I love your blog. I love your honesty in the way you write. I can totally relate as a fellow SAHM, I struggle with these things too. You are not alone :)
    I stumbled upon your blog in "moms bloggers club". I will continue to check back and look forward to new posts :)

  5. Hi Andrea, I found you through MBC. Your post is compelling. All's I can say is wow, she's got a glide to her stride. You've obviously done a lot of self evaluation and personal growth. Love your spirit and enthusiasm in our Lord!
