Super Comfy and Casual Outfit & My Heart Spilled Out
Good morning, loves!!! I am so happy to be with you today! I have had a crazy week. I really can not believe it's Friday. What in the world? My week was full of cooties. My oldest daughter spent most days home from school with a fever and a bad cold. Poor thing. Now I feel like my body is fighting it off! I really hope and pray it goes away!
I am doing a different kind of post today. I like the challenge that comes from switching things around and shakin' up the ol' bag of tricks.
I hope you find inspiration to be you. All of you. I hope you leave my blog inspired to love yourself, to cherish the body you have right this second. It is perfect right now. I hope you find yourself inspired to give yourself grace today. To know that your endless to-do list, will probably never really be all the way checked off. I'm preaching to the choir here. Ehem. I know how hard I can be on myself and I'm proposing to live differently than what is the "norm" is in this world. I hope you feel inspired to believing what's in your closet is enough. That you are enough. I hope we are all inspired to not live life mediocrely, but on the other hand not being so consumed with the hustle to attain superfluous success that will not satisfy, that we waste our lives away in a fit of business and debt trying to chase our happy place." Happy" is a son of a biscuit, if you know what I mean? It is always moving around making itself elusively unreachable until we have more, do more, reach more. When is enough, enough? I don't want to look back on my life and think that I could have slowed down my roll and actually enjoyed ALL I already had. That happy wasn't the real destination my heart wanted to settle on. That what it was searching for all along was to be fully known and fully loved. Worthy of being loved and worthy of enjoying human connection without barricades that prevented any love coming in for the sake of not being hurt.
I hope to inspire you to trust your journey. Wherever you're at right now, be it in a valley or a mountain top, you're in the right place, right now. As much a valleys hurt, when surrendered to
God, they produce character, and that produces perseverance and that produces hope. And hope changes everything. When we hope for a better tomorrow, we'll gain a better tomorrow, in spite of the ache and pain we feel from our hurts. I hope to inspire myself and you to move into the courageous action of taking every difficulty by the hand and thanking God for helping us shine brighter because of it. May you be blessed this weekend. May you know yourself a little bit better. May your heart heal where it needs healing. May you love and laugh and giggle and find joy in the ordinary things. I love you so very much. Thank you for being a listening ear. I am so very grateful I have the privilege to write to you. I've been praying for you for a long time. Asking God to use all this brokenness for His glory and to help anyone that might need it. I don't know if I help you or you help me. But I do know that you are a part of my purpose and journey. I need you to be inspired to keep going on this wild ride. I need to know that I am doing the right thing by continuing to write and put myself out there.
I hope you can believe me when I say, God was calling me to open up and be vulnerable and I didn't want to. He changed my heart. He showed me that suffering seizes to be suffering the moment it finds a meaning. You are that. A part of my hope in which my heart has found the courage to have a voice. Till next time, love!
