Enjoy the simple things. Today, it’s my first Friday off in far too long. A cup of coffee (and a good book of course) on the front porch before the kiddos wake up after the Fourth of July festivities is heavenly and brings balance.
Hope you’ll take time today to enjoy the simple things and find some balance, too.
“Do one thing every day that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Peppa Loveday is a true scaredy cat! So when I got her a gorgeous Shabby Chic pet bed, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that she was afraid to lay in it. One day she did it scared and found the scary can be the very thing that takes you to the next level – of comfort in her case!
For me, I’m getting up early to fit in my daily positivity post without obsessing over my ability to sustain it. I know if God puts the purpose in my heart, He will provide… Now I feel empowered that my faith is stronger than my fear.
What one thing will you do today –– in your personal and/or professional life –– that scares you?
It’s Day 1 of 2019 and the first day since I started my new role as a Women’s Center Director that I’ve posted. I’m not exactly sure how to manage being a wife, mother, Life Coach, author and blogger, but I’ve missed this –– I’ve missed you –– and am determined to get back to writing regularly. I did it consecutively for over a year after all! Recently, a conversation with a dear friend, Valerie, has inspired me to get incorporate servant leadership and social service into the blog, but I’ve yet to work out the details. And of course I still want to feature style and Shabby Chic decor –– like my tree! Now that I’m renting a tiny house for personal and professional use, there are lots of fresh photos to share. Then there’s faith, the foundation of everything I do. Though I’ve been at it for a bit now, I must confess I still feel like a novice/beginning blogger and am somewhat overwhelmed…
This morning’s devotion, however, entitled Something New, spoke to God’s work in our lives and encouraged me: “I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness, I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” – Isaiah 43:19 NLT. How exciting is that! I don’t know what 2019 holds, but it’s so good to know Who holds 2019! Can’t wait to see what He does in my family, my career, my writing –– my life! And yours!
If the road you’re facing a D –– a personal barrier or challenge that negatively impacts you professionally –– like a difficult, bumpy road, take heart! God can make it lead to a beautiful destination and your best life!
