The sun is shining now, after a downpour. Even though I’m still in my pajamas at 12:58 pm, I’ve had my vitamins, (and ordered some new ones) eaten 2 eggs with ½ an avocado, done some arm weights, put my bra on and am now on my second espresso. Some days you have to celebrate the tiny victories. Today is one of those days.--
I don't know if any of you need to hear this but this is what I'm telling myself today:
Keep breathing. Keep doing the next thing, even if it’s just taking your vitamins, or going for that walk, making your bed or simply putting your bra on. And then do the next thing after that. Be kind to yourself. You are given only partial information in this life. You aren’t meant to know it all. You are a child who is loved, held and led.
Let’s leave behind the childishness that demands its own way, that throws temper tantrums when it doesn’t understand, that pouts and stamps feet in defiance. Let’s lean into that most beautiful quality of our childhood (especially on the days when things just seem impossible and unresolvable) - TRUST.
When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 12Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. -I Cor 13:11-12
But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." - Mt 19:14
