Often, we are our own worst critic.
What if--and I mean really, WHAT IF you loved yourself a little more?
Look yourself in the mirror and instead of picking apart your flaws, love yourself a little harder and tell yourself you're beautiful.
Exercise your strengths and stop dwelling on your weaknesses!
Work on being 1% better every day instead of filling your own head with negative self-talk.
Celebrate the fact that there's only ONE YOU. God thought this world needed you just as much as it needed mountains, oceans and galaxies.
You can be a work of art and a work in progress at the same time. Stop being so hard on yourself. *disclaimer*
This message is for me, too. 💖
"Life can be tough
So keep your spirits up!
Don't be overwhelmed." This summer I have been overwhelmed with so many things swirling around in my head in all directions, that it has almost made me paralyzed!
This is just a reminder to not become overwhelmed with your ideas, your to do list and particularly, life in general, but to stop and pursue each thing one at a time. God only gives us one day at a time for a reason. I remember missionary & author Elizabeth Elliott tell young moms that were overwhelmed just to do the next thing. Can anyone relate?
Seattle, you’re pretty great! 💯 Yesterday’s view from #KerryPark ❤️ If you look closely, you can see Mt. Rainier!!!

•”As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it..... Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” Ephesians 4: 1-7, 14-15• 🤳🏽 @kelseyanne413 Thanks Kelsey. I love this picture. And I miss you and Washington/PNW already😭😘 #godsgrace#godisgood#godscreation#latergram#mountainpostliving#washingtonstate
•You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful... “Dogs, for a reason that can only be described as divine, have the ability to forgive, let go of the past, and live each day joyously. It’s something the rest of us strive for.” •
This dog amazes me, and I truly see so much of Buddy in her. The ear to the right, we call it her “wonky ear” has a scar and sits differently than the other one leading us to believe she was injured at one point. She shows us signs in other ways that she has not always felt safe or been treated the way she deserves, but by the grace of God she was given a second chance. Now every morning she wakes up the silliest, happiest girl. Life gave her Lemon and she’s making Lemonade 🍋😍 #adoptdontshop#Godscreation#happytails#Mucilleapprovesthispost
Over the past year , I have found that I have an overwhelming desire to be a part of a culture that shines a positive light on the balance of exercise and healthy living ( no product selling .. just life experiences 😊).
I was at Target the other day in the fitness section and I heard a couple of young girls ( maybe 13-14 years old ) talking about their clothing sizes and what diets and exercise they would have to do to lose weight . I found myself having an immediate reaction of sorrow . These are children , focusing on a meaningless number that in turn ( this is me assuming) would make others think differently of them. Their worth depends on it .
Sooo .. what can I really do about it? I’ve struggled with this . How do I have a voice in this rapidly decaying society of worth ? Thus far, I’ve discovered that I can start with being a simple example in my sphere of influence. Sharing my small perspective on how God has changed my view on exercise and wellness and how you can be part of this movement as well. Get ready for tidbits about the importance of self talk and awareness, rest days and my favorite-cinnamon buns !
