Feeling guilty for putting something on your credit card.
In the past six months, I’ve felt happy, healthy, and at peace.
It’s reflecting. Asking questions. Listening without needing to respond. Focusing on being happy in your presence alone.
You say no to the things that no longer benefit you. You are letting go of any negativity and the toxic circumstances that once consumed you.
All I want to be is a person who is joyous, who finds hope in the brokenness and light in the dark. I just want to fill and be filled, to bless other people as I have been blessed.
The time you set aside to simply slow down, to be present, to live without focusing on what’s coming next—that’s what sets you free.
Who we are as people is not comprised of the negative pieces of our lives, but the positive. By the ways we’ve stood back up after being pushed down, risen after falling. By the way we’ve continued, and never given up.
Be the laughter that spreads, the smile that greets a person who is struggling through their day. Be the encouragement a stranger needs, a shoulder for one to lean on, a hand to pull them back to their feet again.
There is more to this life than believing what you have right now is all there is, that this is all you can get, that you’re stuck. There is more out there; go get it.
all the doubt that’s kept you up at night
because doubt is the conscience’s defense
and your life
is worth going to battle for.
