we can try or we can be tried
in every hero's story there's a point where they want to turn back; so close to their victory, yet also bleeding, sweating, and crying from their journey, so far
it becomes a choice, at this point
to continue to walk forward or stay in their victimhood
i believe, whether you consider yourself a hero or not, you can probably relate, here
so, do you want to see the win or just have a story to tell?

read yesterday's good, again
monday february 12th
over this weekend, i heard something that resonated: 'we will all find ourself in a dark place, at some point or another, you get to decide whether it's a burial or a planting'
just let that sink in..
the blessing is often disguised as a setback

what a blessing it is that our eyes can see
after a year and some, overcoming severe postpartum depression, while just beginning to emerge from the fog that it placed on me & my reality
i've been looking around, at my home - my husband - my children - my creations; just thinking, oh, what a miracle it is that i can see these things
much of society is focused on the house, the wedding, the birth, the success; what about the eyes that can actually witness these things?
what a blessing it is that our eyes can see

do something that your former self would do
yes, you heard that right. in a society that is so focused on future-self; how often do we find ourself disconnected from our true self, battling our mental health or wellbeing in some way. the fact of the matter is, we are who we are, and while we evolve - there are some parts of us that are with us, for the long haul.
so, if you're feeling disintegrated, think about something you used to love to do, that you've stopped doing & then, DO it; coming back home to yourself, with each step.

boundaries are all we got
this world is a free-for-all, in many ways; while i love to center in on love & light, it is ignorant in my opinion to forego the instances of abuse, neglect, unfaithfulness, and discord that exists in our world
what if we could protect ourself from it? what if there was magic-midas-touch that gave us the armor we need to be immune to such scenarios?
there is, in fact & its called: a boundary
what i've found is that many of us are afraid of implementing such thing because we innately feel unworthy & rather be seen by those who mistreat us than completely unseen
now more than ever, we need to come home to our God-given worthiness for respect, care, loyalty, and harmony & flex righteous boundaries with those around us
who do you need to set a boundary with, today?

what's your superpower?
this week at the homestead, i'm helping our children embrace their 'superpower' - so, we spent time in circle today, creating a superhero name & dreaming-up their original kindness-based kryptonite
we were created to be unique, and there is something only WE can do, here on this Earth
we are doing ourself a disservice if we are being anything other than who we truly are
think about what people always compliment you on,
applaud you for, and take it from there..
we all have God-given POWER.

the power of choice
while reflecting earlier, on my time spent in arizona; a year and some spent out there, diving deep into my soul
i remembered that at the beginning of the journey, i re-invigorated my love for wellbeing; attending farmer's markets, taking to raw milk, microgreens, bee pollen, and things of the sort
yet, something within the spiritual realm intrigued my curiosity & i dove deep, trickling my passion for wellness behind me and moving into unknown, deep waters working with energy, healing, and more
there was choice; it was mostly unconscious, yet looking back i can see how i abandoned one for the other, and ironically God has landed me back into the arms of wellbeing; the experience of the spiritual deep-dive isn't one i regret, although it has been one of the toughest things to integrate into my being
it is clear that we always have 2 choices, and when we are at pivotal points in our journey, a step back to notice what is Godly and what is a lesson-waiting-to-happen is an important part of staying true to YOUR path

the biggest trap is living for tomorrow
&this doesn't come from a glass-half-full POV that 'tomorrow may not come' because i believe in a Good God, and have hope that he's giving us all a tomorrow
however, in today's world, many are living for tomorrow's agenda, for tomorrow's excitement
what about today?
the 24-hours we've been gifted, right here, right now
what would living for today feel like for: you?
monday january 29th
God is after your surrender
we often are living, trying to iron every detail of our life so it appears without creases
this only creates resistance and immense pressure; a heavy burden to carry through life: perfection
instead, all our Creator really wants is our surrender to the goodness-filled plan for our life
what would surrendering a little bit more, today, look like for you?
friday january 26th
thank the Good
it's true that perspective is everything; early today my husband & i spoke of the difference between 'i have to' and 'i get to' - he began the day feeling overwhelmed and while taking a momentary pause, read a post of a family friend who has been battling cancer & given only a few months to live
don't want for a life-shattering event to encourage you to be grateful for the Good in your life
begin today, messiness and all
be thankful for simply being alive
thursday january 25th
gratitude is humbling
when we focus on the simple things, many take for granted, a gentleness overtakes our inner spirit & it becomes undeniable how equivocally blessed we really are
look around; what is something simple that you can be grateful for, today?
wednesday january 24th
this day only comes once; stay present
whichever this day may bring, it is only arriving once, so let's be here, now.
how can you practice presence, right now, in this moment?
