My Plate is Full and I’m Hungry for More!

I have a lot on my plate. Not a literal plate of food, but the imaginary plate we use to describe how busy our lives are.

Between my full time job, teaching part time, blogging (even in its current limited form), family life, and a host of other things I’m working on…I’ve got a lot to do these days.  I’m not complaining, just acknowledging that fact.

Driving home the other day, I went down my “to-do” list and it seems to be growing by the minute. Everything is such a balancing act for me right now. It’s a bit overwhelming. But as I think about everything on my to-do list, I realize this is par for the course on the path to greatness.

I put so much on my plate because I have an appetite for success and I’m going to tackle each portion of my life’s meal one by one, until I reach my goals. I feel so hungry!

I’m hungry for more out of life!

I’m hungry for a new lifestyle – the one of abundance that I’ve always dreamed of having.

I’m hungry to be a better me.

I’m hungry for God.

I’m just…hungry! Ready! Willing!

The first half of 2012 is coming to a close. What are you doing to help you achieve your goals?

What are you hungry for?

  • It is great to want more! I think it keeps us motivated to meet goals. Just be sure to take time out to take care for yourself and I’m sure you can keep that plate overflowing!
    Right now, I am”hungry” for knowing I am making a difference and making a better life for me and my family. I don’t have to have accolades and all that stuff, I just want to know at the end of the day I was the best I could be and helped someone else along the way.

      I totally share your sentiments, LaTorsha! Making a difference and finding a balance is key.

    I feel you!! I am so hungry for success. I want to do so many things that I am having to tell mysef that I need to find a few things and focus on them before moving on to other things. I’m a mogul on the making

  • I am hard at work on my goals and like you, my plate is full. I’m hungry for the life of my dreams. And as Mimi said, I’m a mogul in the making!

  • Since my JET Magazine feature I’ve been hungry to build upon success in a way to help create a better lifestyle for my family. Currently with my husband’s job it seems like he’s always missing out because he works so much. Not to mention it’s dangerous and I’m always worried about him. I’m hoping that I can build on this momentum and really get YUMMommy to take off.

    I’m hungry to make a difference. So many people have been a blessing to me throughout my life and I want to start being more of a blessing on a larger scale. I’m hungry to get my relationship with God back on track. Part of that is continuing our search for home church here in Charlotte since it’s not logical for me to drive 2 hours both ways every Sunday to my old church in my hometown.
