Balance: The Myth of Having it All – Part 3
Propel Women series has focused on balance and the myth of having it all. Balance has been the subject of discussion for the last 2 sessions. Today we will finish up our discussion on balance.
I shared yesterday that our church launched a new Propel Chapter. We are so excited.
But you may be asking, “What is Propel?”
Here’s what they say about themselves:
“Propel exists to help women fulfill their passion, purpose, and potential. The curriculum invites your group right into the discussion as Christine Caine and guests discuss the ideals and issues all women face, whether that be in the home, community, or workplace.”
One of the topics we discussed at our first meeting was the myth of having it all.
“We laugh at the idea of actually having it all, but if we’re being honest with ourselves, many of us burden ourselves with expectations about everything from the numbers on the scale to the letters after our last name. We look to others to tell us who we are – and then exhaust ourselves trying to make it a reality!”
Questions for you to ponder
Are you finding yourself in this space now?
Have you put unrealistic expectations on yourself?
Are you comparing yourself to others you see on social media?
Do you feel guilty because you can’t meet the needs you have placed on yourself?
Christine Caine says, “I don’t become a people pleaser, but I try to remain a God pleaser.”
Ephesians 3:16-19, “I pray that out of his glorious riches, he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
