Planting Living Vines: The Journey to Meaningful Success

Today, as I sat in my office, my gaze repeatedly fell upon a blanket draped over my chair, adorned with quotes from Proverbs 31. One phrase in particular captivated me: “She labors there to plant the living vines.” It resonated deeply, refusing to leave my thoughts.

Have you ever found yourself in a period of your life where you were cultivating living vines? Those endeavors that require a deep foundation to yield enduring fruits? This phase demands an unwavering focus on the efforts we put forth and the outcomes we aspire to achieve.

Let’s delve deeper. There comes a moment in life when we realize the significance of our existence is profoundly reshaped. It’s when the number of followers we have is pleasant but lacks substance; when the companionship we enjoy is worth celebrating, yet it dims in comparison to what truly matters. This realization stems from a maturity that’s as refined as aged wine, where self-acceptance no longer seeks external validation. You cultivate a self-respect that renders the negativity of detractors irrelevant.

Ultimately, it boils down to this: How will my life’s narrative be remembered? How will the chapters of my story resonate with those who know me intimately and love me deeply? This introspection sparks a desire for recognition that is deeply personal, coming from those who have stood by us through thick and thin.

This is why those words struck a chord within me: “She labored there to plant living vines.” They encapsulate the essence of my drive—my passion. It propels me further in my business endeavors, invigorates my ministry, anchors me at home, and motivates me every morning. It’s all about the living vines.

Dear friends, I believe many of you are in a similar space, prioritizing the community you serve, making a lasting impact, and nurturing a legacy that outlives you.

Yes, these living vines are what I toil for. It’s all about the people.

Ladies, in this blog post, I want to share a few thoughts. Life’s truly significant aspects are few. Take the time to discover what they mean to you. This realization might differ from one person to another, and that’s perfectly fine. Embrace what holds value to you and immerse yourself in it fully. If it occupies your heart and mind, give it the space to flourish.

Your efforts should stem from love. We undertake numerous tasks out of necessity. Isn’t it time to dedicate ourselves to something we’re passionate about? Something that will energize us for years to come and stand the test of time for future generations?

Let your endeavors be vibrant and life-giving. True success lies in succession. It’s about touching lives in such a profound way that you leave them better than you found them. Whether they know you personally, purchase your products, or connect with your brand, make sure you’re offering something transformative.

Embrace your dreams. Venture into life with a renewed sense of freedom, beyond the mundane. When you start pursuing interests simply because you desire to, your world transforms. You’re entitled to aspire. Challenge yourself to pursue those dreams you’ve deferred.

Let your passion resonate within you. As the verse says, “She sets her heart upon a nation and takes it as her own.” Own your efforts. Embrace your role with confidence and pride, declaring, “I am she!” Don’t wait to become; embody it now. Seize the next chapter of your life, embark on new ventures, and embrace your creations. Focus on the wonders of life, rather than the worries.

Remember, our mantra as busy girls is, “you catch what you cast for, and you’re always casting.” So, as we navigate this journey, let’s commit to planting our own living vines. Together, let’s make a difference, one power move at a time. See you on the other side of success.
