Be patient and trust the process.
A little reminder to myself today 📝
Patience is not sitting around waiting doing nothing. Patience is about doing everything we can whilst maintaining a good attitude about the results.
Trust in the timing 🙏🏽
I have been completely MIA for a few weeks. It’s been a tough few weeks. I still have a hard time talking about it but at some point I will. That’s super vague and probably annoying but I have a point to this post.... A few weeks ago I experienced one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced. All of the sadness and the heartbreak consumed me. I have been drowning in life. I didn’t want to be around people because I didn’t want to have to fake a smile. I didn’t workout for a week because I didn’t care to. I didn’t eat much because I didn’t feel like it. I wanted to scream and did some... I wanted to cry and did a lot... I wanted answers but I didn’t get them. I won’t ever get them. Just when I felt like I could dig a hole and sit in it I prayed instead. Sometimes you will go through things and you will not understand why but just know that God has a plan. He will always be there through the good and the bad. Instead of continuing on in this dark hole I was in I trusted that God knows what he is doing. I ran across this ”God will carry you through the storm.” Isaiah 43:2 how great is it knowing you don’t have to go it alone?
I took a week off but starting back last Monday I forced myself to start working out again. It took a few days but I was reminded why I NEED that time. Time to think, time to take my frustration out, time to blast music and sing along.. and every time when I didn’t feel like pushing play I did it and when I was done I felt better even if I didn’t want to admit I did. I am finally starting to feel like myself again.
Sometimes you have to sit in the sadness which I did. However God always has a funny way of dragging you out of it if you let him. Know that no matter what happens the pain you are going through will end and God has something great planned for me and you too. “The pain you’ve been feeling can’t compare to the joy that’s coming.” Romans 8:18 #growthroughwhatyougothrough#hardtimes#godsplan#workoutmotivation#momlife#struggle#itwillgetbetter#keepgoing
Mom is on STRIKE! Yes, it’s true, but before anyone jumps to any conclusions and begins bashing my choice in parenting, let me just say this... motherhood is my ultimate calling, my God given purpose, my everything. I love the good stuff, the hard stuff and all the in between. Being a stay at home mom to my five little arrows is the ultimate beautiful chaos and my heart and soul crave it. That being said, my little tribe of five has become quite comfortable with my role as stay at home mom and the fact that I always have everything prepared and organized for them. So comfortable in fact that the attitude of expecting has taken over their attitude of appreciation and now we have a problem. After having a complete breakdown Sunday morning, I sat down with my hubby, shared my feelings and together we came up with a plan... time to strike! The purpose of this strike? To restore gratitude. To rebalance expectations. To reinforce independence. To repute humility. To revive respect. And to raise kindness. So today was day one and ya’ll, it’s killing me! I’m not cooking or washing laundry. I’m not driving to or from activities. I’m not cleaning the house or emptying trash bins. Im not doing the dishes or food shopping. I’m legit on strike. The house is already falling apart, the kids are already feeling the effects of my “mom duty” absence and my inner control freak is screaming inside. But I’m determined to stick this out, teach these important lessons and love on my husband for being my biggest fan. I will continue my strike for five whole days so these little babes of mine can have the time they need to climb off the entitled bus and back on board the appreciation train. In the meantime pray. Pray for me, pray for them and pray for my amazing husband because this week (and my house) is sure to turn into a complete shit show. 😳🙏🏻

Church is not a building, it's a group of people who are dedicated to God and focused on loving others.
