If I’ve learned anything the past few years it’s that good things take time and patience usually pays off. I’ve learned that I stand in my own way and worrying about thoughts of other people just holds me back. I’ve learned that fear holds me back and I’m not places my faith in the right places when I let it creep in.
It has been stopping me in my tracks and shifting my attitude that joy is a choice in the hardest of days. Finding beauty and joy and filling my heart with that has done nothing by good things for me. Joy is a choice and it’s one that I’m choosing and I felt a tug at my heart strings that it was the foundation of this space. That’s what I’ve learned this space is really about, and when I realized it wasn’t all about me here – the pieces fell together with components that my heart really needed. The inspiration began to flood my mind and my desire to write and create came forward yet again.
After the shifts that have taken place in my last 7 years of blogging, then the final shift after having my daughter of uncertainty and fear creeping in of this scary internet world my brief time away was good for me. A quiet calm took over my heart that I had been searching for, for so long. I found clarity that not only is this space for me, and someday for my daughter to read but it’s for Him and it’s for you.
It’s for you reading this to find words that meet you where you are and calm your restless heart coupled with fears that maybe you aren’t doing enough. It’s a space I want to use to inspire others – inspire mothers, wife, and others in between. I want people to come here for delicious food, creative activities and for beautiful words.
