I have been there.
So many things in my life needed to be reevaluated. Everything came to a screeching halt.
I wrote this post last year Embracing Simplicity. My theme for 2013
This past year I have found so much freedom in embracing simplicity. Freedom as a woman, mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, etc. I wish I could adequately put it all into words. I have come to love life again and find joy in the mundane and in the monotonous. My smile is not a mask hiding sadness in my heart. God truly helped me to embrace the simple.
God has helped me embrace just being me. Not the me that anyone puts in a box or that anyone else thinks I should be. But ME. Truly, completely me. Wherever God has me, whatever I am doing in whatever season I am in, I am learning to do what works for me/us and that's it. I live for the approval of God alone. I don't have to live my life based on other's opinions, convictions, or what works for them.
My personal theme for 2014 is still tbd. But I am hoping for another year like 2013.
I pray that no matter the circumstances we can all embrace where we are on the way to where we are going and learn to just be. Those of you who have had a rough 2013, I pray this year brings you so much joy, happiness, strength, peace, love, & comfort. Hold tight to the promise that This Too Shall Pass!
