There are several times when I have felt like I just couldn’t win no matter what I did. Running late in the morning, off to a bad start, yelling at the kids, wishing that I could be that sweet voiced mother even though I wanted to scream. But, what I have learned is that I can.
Hey, I took a few weeks of and it felt so good. If you follow me on social media you can see what I’ve been up to this summer such as summer vacation and my business, but other than that, God is good.
So, I titled this blog, You gotta get up, because I have to be honest. Sometimes I need to be my own cheerleader and this is exactly what I tell myself. Ladies, have you ever felt like everything in life is just weighing on you and if the wind blows just right, it could blow you over. Lets talk…
Have you ever felt like you’ve been set apart? I know I have. When I was a little girl, I loved playing with three other best friends outside and we would laugh and make up games that would keep us busy all day. There was one day specifically I remember that they stopped talking to me. I looked out my window and could see them at the park playing and running around together, it made me a little jealous.
Life is amazing. It’s almost April and the year is going by so quickly. So, how are you holding up? Me, I’ve had a few times this year already I felt like I was losing. But, as I’m learning you just roll with the punches and keep going. My daughter is graduating in May, and I’m not really sure how I’m doing. Helping her plan for the future had been a long haul and some days I’m just not sure how I’m holding up.
Have you ever asked yourself this question? I have. On more than one occasion and in more than several scenarios. My life has been far from easy and I’ve been faced with many times I knew I would fail. Why? Because I believe that I was in a season of wanting to do things my way and not Gods.
I have to say that connection with the outside world is becoming more and more overwhelming. Children are learning how to build their knowledge of social media at an alarming rate. Who can agree with me on this? It seems as though we all go off to our corners every day, school, work, life, and as soon as we come back together everyone’s still distracted by their electronics. I am guilty of using my phone during dinner to check email, or sending a text during a family movie. It all really needs to stop and we have had many family talks regarding this topic. Here’s a few things we’ve implemented in our home to help bring the family closer together when the world is pushing us apart.
Has there ever been a season in your life that you wondered why you’re here? What is it exactly that God would have you do with your life? Each day brings a new challenge filled with frustration and you just can’t catch a break? I’m raising both hands here.
Well, first of all let me tell you that you do. Even before I start talking about a topic that I recently discussed with some friends, you do. What am I talking about? Join me for a little discussion.
Here we are at the beginning of a new year, and for many of you I’m sure there’s a long list of things that you want to accomplish. New years goals are a great way to start of the new year, however sometime they can have you feeling defeated before you even get started.
As we close out 2016, there is one thing that I would like you to know…
