“Pressure creates diamonds.” 💎
A friend sent me this today as I have been overwhelmed by my current commitments. It served as a reminder that while things might seem difficult, something precious and remarkable will be the final outcome.
Sharing this reflection with you all (and myself) as a reminder to persevere. 💕
Happy Saturday! 🌹
Changes come as rainbow rays do cleanse the soul. A whisp of hair is blown away from thy site. Gratitude. As the aspen trees have a right to change, we have that same right. Courage. Do we expect too much in expecting perfection? As the skies are told to be blue, arent they? And if they are not, then how much faith do you possess? Prayer. When will we run into the sunbeams again, to simply feel the present moment. Time. Time. Time... This is something that exists through the here and now. Make it stand still. Make it warp. Make it yours. Because today? We have. Tomorrow is a mystery. Yesterday has already past. Make this day yours to smile underneath the sunshine!
This guy! It’s mushy and gooshy and our teenagers get eeewed out by it but he’s the #love of my life!
He is my biggest encourager, the one who reminds me who I am and pushes me to do the things he knows I am meant to do. In a few hours I’ll get on a plane to #Chicago , a trip I wasn’t going to take because I didn’t want to look like a bad wife or mom for #traveling so much. An unconference with women I’ve been doing business with for almost 3 years, a #brilliance and #badassery fest I definitely would have had #FOMO about all week long. A few weeks ago I let it slip that it was happening, and he immediately said, “you’re going right?” I gave him some lame excuse about the kids needing me and what about all we have to do at home.
He said, “YOU ARE GOING! Buy the ticket.”
And so, tonight we are home. Doing traditions we have done the past 16 years and tomorrow I’ll be in Chicago, going after our #dreams , while he keeps empowering me to take #adventures , so we can create #opportunities for more!
