Are you existing or living? Does it feel like you are just trying getting through life right now? Are you weighed heavy with burdens going through days that blur together? Sweet friend, God has made you for SO.MUCH.MORE. God did not make you just to suffer well for His glory. He made you and then bought you back out of death so that you could live out JOY, PEACE, CONTENTMENT, INTIMACY, SECURITY,BEAUTY, and STRENGTH.
If you are hurting and carrying heavy burdens I really encourage you to do two things today:
First, bring those concerns,hurts, and anxieties to God. Be transparent with Him about how you feel and trust that He desires your good and is capable of COMPLETE RESTORATION in your life. JUST.LET.GO.
Second, serve and encourage someone else. One of the very best things we can do to get out of an inward-thinking slump is to direct our thoughts and actions outward to intentionally serve, encourage and build up someone else. You never know what is going on in the heart of the person right next to you.
God made you to do so much more than just exist.

I am excited to start 2011 with a fresh and motivated mind set. Today is my first day officially back in the ‘office’ after being sick for what seemed like forever, having the hubby sick, holidays, mini-family trips, and taking a few days to re-energize from a happily exhausting first year in business. I plan to be super productive and disciplined today! I have high expectations for 2011, so I must start it in full force! I started my new sleep pattern (aka sleeping like a normal person, at least 7 hours at night versus the 2-4 hours between the hours of 8am and noon) and I woke up with more energy than ever! I plan to eat right, beginning today and really nurture myself, because in 2010, I forgot about myself. It’s true, I rarely slept, even rarely ate right and I know my health declined due to that. If I am not healthy, what good am I to my family, friends, clients?
I plan on checking in with myself before making any decisions today (and in the future for that matter). I will take a deep breath, relax, and listen to my inner voice (which so often I dismiss irritably, especially when I am stubborn about something). I will then make the best decision for me. I will not be pressured to please other people this year. Yes, I said it (and it felt good getting that off my chest!)
I hope you do the same. Happy 2011, may it be filled with happiness & success!
I AM determined, in LOVE, strong & standing tall. I AM God’s unique creation, living life creating myself! ♥

I can’t put into words just yet all the emotions in my ♥, but MTH WATERCOLOR WEEKEND has transformed me in ways I never thought possible! It’s Iike I (along with the support of 20+ AMAZING women) organized my (internal) closet and I just have to take care of cleaning up everything that goes back in and everything that stays outside! ♥ Thank you Lara Casey, Natalie Norton, Gina Iolanda Zeidler, Emily Cowan Ley & everyone that was part of such a life-changing experience! Love you all from my core! <3
More pics to come, but here is a little peek! :)
