Be Bold, Be Brave, Be You.

Found this print at Target over the weekend! #TargetForTheWin

This week has been a world wind. Lunches with some wonderful women and one amazing email later, makes me truly thankful for this ride.

Last week I expressed my frustration with the ride and being still. I did promise to give it my best shot though. Funny thing is, when you actually hunker down and get serious, things happen.

It’s on God’s time.

Over the course of the last few months I have changed my outlook, my perspective on life. It’s been AMAZING and has created a cascading affect on everything in my personal life, motherhood especially. This is something I will talk about more in upcoming posts, but for now I will just focus on the present. June – my month to be still and everything that has happened this week.

My week began with giggling girls and fun adventures. Library story time and nature walks, just to name a few. Then a mid-week lunch with a dear friend, whom my girls lovingly refer to as Aunt. She broke up the seriousness of my thoughts with some lighthearted laughter. Obliged my oldest with some SnapChat fun and got the little one to warm up a bit. Sometimes what we need most is to put our thoughts away for a time and just enjoy the moment. Thank you my dear, sweet friend!

Thursday met with an e-mail I had been anxiously awaiting. I was stunned to see it in my inbox. It took me a moment, but I dived right in! The e-mail was EVERYTHING I needed to hear. Funny how that works right!? She talked about the three phases of entrepreneurship- Enlightenment, Info Dumping, and Clarity.

As she expressed, I am definitely in the Enlightenment and Info Dumping phases. I am reading and listening to everything I can get my hands on. It’s as if my soul has been awakened and I am searching for my purpose, my passion. It is difficult to describe, but I’ll try. It’s like looking at a dim screen with dull colors. The more I listen and read, the more the screen brightens and the colors become vibrant. The sky is not the limit, there is no limit to what I can accomplish.

“Be still and know that I am God.” -Psalm 46:10

Friday came and I found myself driving more than an hour to have lunch with some wonderful women I only get to see a few times a year. I took this opportunity to talk with God. First thanking him for this amazing life. Then telling him I am working on Being Still, but that it’s a lot harder than I thought it would. I told him about the questions I was still pondering and my quest for answers. I also acknowledged that I knew these answers would come on his time and I would continue making an effort to focus on the ride.

God’s Presences.

During lunch I was speaking to these lovely ladies, telling them everything about my journey. It was as if God was speaking through them, telling me exactly what I needed to hear. I see a possible destination in site. The path is much clearer now. It’s going to take a lot of effort and hard work, but I will get there.

For now, I am going to sit back and enjoy the ride!

  1. I love this! First, the print is beautiful, but I love your idea of stillness and being bold with God. I love times of stillness because I believe a lot of things are revealed to me in those times.

  2. Knowing where we stand and the importance of being still, even if we struggle to do so, makes such a huge difference. I love the tone of your words. Having undergone similar transformations lately, it makes me eager to see what each new day brings.

    1. Thank you Eli. When I started this, I thought it would help me find my creative path and it has. But it also taught me a lot about myself. Something I definitely didn’t expect.

  3. Oh, I love this so much. I think that wonderful things happen when we just sit back and allow them to unfold, as opposed to forcing the issue. I have a hard time with that personally, because I’m a bit of a control freak. Not knowing what lies ahead always freaks me out, but life never works out the way we intend, and I’m starting to realize THAT’S the entire point 🙂 This is wonderful, and I’m so happy to read this newfound enthusiasm and your joy that spills out here. It’s lovely <3

    1. Thank you Charlotte, I am a bit of a control freak myself. It is so hard to let go, but I love the things that are happening because of it.:)

  4. What an encouraging story you’re telling! So grateful for a God who is worthy to be trusted. I’m also working on learning to rest and be still and lean on Him!

    1. Thank you Rachel. Being still is much harder than I thought it would be when I started, but it’s getting easier. How is it going for you?
