🚨 Long vulnerable post ALERT🚨
My friends, I haven’t done a monthly reflection/lesson in a while! In this new season I’m in, I haven’t felt the need to share all these with you all like I did in my last season. There’s so much going on in the world, and my gunk just seems so miniscule. But guess what? I still feel the gunk. Even with life continuing to tick by. I know many of you feel things too. If you need it, I’m giving you permission to feel all the feels. You can still go through your own thing and care deeply about the worldly issues we’re facing. So without future ado, it’s BAACCKK. 💁 I changed my mind, and I need to share with you! ❤️ Incoming, extrovert alert.
I’m in a moment of my life that I need to bring these lessons back to the surface. Not only for me, but for all those feeling something similar. I’m so incredibly grateful for those coming in my life at particular time. I cherish the conversations I have with so many that say, “me too.” Sometimes, it just feels good to know we’re not alone in our journey on this Earth. It feels great to connect with another person in our growth or pain.
Cheers to the real ones going through the emotions. 🥂 Cheers to the vulnerable honest ones. 🍻 Cheers to the ones just trying to be their best. 🥂 Cheers to the ones who are brave and work to be the change. 🍻
If you’re new to my friend group, welcome! You’re in for a treat. 😁 As always, I promise to be honest with myself and to you through my process.
So let’s get to it! 🎉
This month, I’ve been wrestling with the idea of changing my mind. I’ve struggled allowing myself to change perspectives or life plans.
Growing up, I had the mindset to stick with your word. What you say out loud is truth. What you say, is what you’ll do. There’s no room to change your mind. Yet, I’m doing just that… Changing. My. Mind.
Now let me just say, changing your mind does not make you unpredictable. It does not make you unreliable. ESPECIALLY if the only one being affected by your change is YOU. There’s also a difference between being flaky or inconsistent and changing your plans in life. This has been a hard concept for me to separate the two.
With all this rolling in my mind… Here are a few things I’ve changed my mind on lately. Many more to come that I’m still processing. These might be small, but to me it’s been a process to be comfortable with changing something I was so passionate about.
- I think I kind of like cheese with french fries..😳
- Some of the Midwest food isn’t so bad…kinda.
- We want more land than 2-3 acres. +A million things about our future and mission are up in the air.
- I don’t like Lysol wipes anymore. They destroy my hands!
- My expectations of friends.
- My hair routine.
- My cleaning schedule. -If you know me, I’m trying not to scrub the floor so often on my hands and knees. 🤦
- My dining room table color.
- My color scheme in the house.
- My expectations on life.
Sigh It feels good to be back. It feels freeing to allow myself to talk about other things than current events! -though I’m very much feeling those as well.
I challenge you to change your mind on something today. Give yourself permission. Seek something greater. You deserve it.
Thanks for reading. ❤️
With honest intentions,
