I have this lovely quote in my home and came across it today after not noticing it for a while. You know how we fill our homes with things we love, but our daily routines can keep us from really looking and seeing all that is around us? I see this quote often, but lately have been glazing over it. Today I actually read it and it spoke to me again.
“Trust in what you love,
continue to do it and
it will take you where you need to go.”
May you fully trust in what you love today…
Ann Voskamp’s blog, A Holy Experience which I have followed for a while, is about the simple wonders of our daily walk with God. Her book One Thousand Gifts- A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, is anticipated out soon.
I have had this book on order for a while and while awaiting it’s delivery I wanted to share this trailer with you, so that you may order it as well.
Watch the video to see a taste of what is to come in the book. Once I receive the book, I will stop back to do a review as well. I hope this inspired you today.
Let me know your thoughts…
When reading some past posts on Kelly Rae Roberts blog this afternoon, I came across this TED video on Brene Brown‘s “The Power of Vulnerability”. I have read some of Brene’s work and visited her blog and website. I thought it might be good to share these words with you too.
I have always been passionate about being authentic and real in every detail of life. It is hard in today’s worldly society that shouts at us from the roof tops- “You are not worthy, you are not enough, you must be perfect.” Ourselves and most importantly, our children are bombarded with this message (especially girls) daily. I do think it’s vital that we always share the words- “you are imperfectly beautiful and you will always be enough” with those we love most.
Brene’s research and journey into “The Power of Vulnerability” is thought-provoking at the least and powerful and life changing at best. I would encourage you to grab some lunch or a cup of afternoon coffee and invest the time in listening to her words.
Some of Brene’s words:
“Let ourselves be seen, deeply seen. Love with our whole hearts and without guarantee. Practice gratitude and joy. Feel and be alive. Know that you are enough.”
I hope those words can speak some truth into your heart today.

Of course, I would love to hear your thoughts on “being enough” with some comments below.
