Beautifully Broken

Aren’t we all a bit beautifully broken? Don’t we all need time for reflection? During our lives we are shaped by so many experiences- some of them good, some of them bad. Regardless, they help us to create the whole package we become. For me, I have had so many wonderful experiences: having children, getting married, falling in love, seeing beautiful places. And yet there have been times of hardship, where I’ve experienced grief, physical pain, mental unrest, and felt like “where do I go from here?”. But that’s the beauty in what God has given us: each day is another chance to start fresh. Literally every time we wake, remind yourself that YOU are in charge of your actions and responses to what happens around you. If you tell yourself today will be a bad day over and over, then guess what? It probably will be. The same goes for good days. Positive affirmations and reading daily devotionals can truly help us to create positive reinforcement in our lives.

With that, there’s a few books & journals I’ve read lately which I’d like to recommend. Even if you feel like you’re on top of your game, these are still good reads:

Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis .

  Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be by [Hollis, Rachel]

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK: A Counter intuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson

AND FINALLY, one of my favorite books for anyone looking to de-stress their life, de-clutter their mind, find clarity, or simply relax, I highly recommend The Living Clearly Method by Hilaria Baldwin. This book and it’s yoga poses literally changed my daily life.

Anyone else obsessed with the books and / or STARZ series Outlander? I know I am. After receiving the first book [Outlander] as a gift, and reading ALL 900 PAGES in 3 days…..I’ve been hooked. Since finishing Diana Gabaldon’s 8 books in the series, I felt prepared to watch the screen adaptation. I’m a tough critic and I’ve gotta say it’s pretty awesome, especially Sam Heughan, who is now my biggest celebrity crush (shhhh don’t tell my hubby). Season 3 of the series just ended last month and now we are in a drought aka droughtlander. Anyone else feeling the effects of the drought? How about another show you enjoy which is on hiatus?
