In this episode of the Creativity & Heart podcast, I’m sharing about the book Own Your Everyday by Jordan Lee Dooley. It’ll mostly be me sharing my biggest takeaways, and I’ll do my best not to share any spoilers! This book really resonated with me and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s struggling with knowing their purpose, mindset challenges like perfectionism/comparison/or disappointment, or if you just want to enjoy being present every day as you serve. Get comfy, and I’ll tell you more.
There were so many good ones to choose from (I highlighted everywhere in this book!), but here are a few powerful quotes that resonated with me:
“Some of the mind-sets I get stuck in include imposter syndrome, disappointment, shame, comparison, perfectionism, and distraction. When I operate from these places, I don’t love like I should. I don’t notice the divine moments God invites me into. I don’t work well but rather just work hard.” (pg. 5)
“Purpose has little to do with the job or role I have, the season I’m in, or the setting I occupy. Rather, it has everything to do with the significance or meaning that drives my life and what I bring to those specific situations.” (page 31)
“Worry and insecurity lose their grip when I come to grips with the fact that I’m not in control (no matter how many prayers I pray) and that I can’t trust anything outside of God.” (pg. 83)
“You cannot live a purposeful life if you are so preoccupied with trying to make it look like someone else’s.” (pg. 119)
“Her success is not my failure.” (pg. 126)
“Don’t wait for something good to happen – be the good that happens. Do hard things even when life is hard, right where you are, with what you have.” (pg. 218)
