Over coffee I'd tell you that I'm exhausted in so many areas of my life. That I need to cut back and step back and that instead of listing out my obligations, I want to list out my gratitude. That I want to have a heart of rest instead of a busy one and that I want to remember what it's like to get a coffee in real life outside on my patio with my kids running around instead of working tirelessly on so many other things.
Over coffee I'd tell you that my priorities have been messed up for quite a while. You've been there too, right? Where you just need a good, long reevaluation.
Over coffee I'd tell you that I need to focus on the Lord. That, really, as always, none of this matters if I don't have a solid relationship with Him. Who am I doing this all for if not for Him?
Over coffee I'd tell you that my heart is heavy in so many ways but on the same time so much lighter and free. And that freedom? It's addicting. And I want more.
Over coffee I'd tell you that I'm focusing on reading. I'm reading books again as well as a lot of really amazing blogs: Kate J Baer, Unfancy (duh), When at Home, Letters from the Nest, Kent Heartstrings, The Wiegands, and my friend Kellie's blog. I'd tell you that we have so much to be grateful for. And let's drop the complaining act and the busy act and the I don't have the time for you act. I'd tell you that I need to re-focus my attention on I have time for you.
Over coffee I'd tell you that I'm so in love with Blessed is She. And I can't wait to make it better and better and better. I would tell you that my heart is in this ministry, and that I'm so grateful for the women who are doing this with me.
Over coffee I'd tell you that my Capsule Wardrobe post got lots of love and that surprised me. And excited me. And I can't wait to show you all a Real Mom's Capsule Wardrobe. Because I think it's important for every mother, wife, sister, daughter out there to feel confident and proud. And to own a good red lipstick.
Over coffee I'd tell you that work is good. That I'm proud of my job and that I'm grateful for it. Again, I'm trying to quit the complaining game. Someone will always out-complain me. Let's change that. Let's, today, change the complaint to gratitude. The sentence from "I don't like this because..." but "Wow, I'm blessed to be here because..."
Maybe? Who knows if it will work. But I'd like to give it a go.
Tell me about you. Tell me what you'd tell me if we were having coffee..
In between tweeting, reading books to my daughters, and [not] burning mac n cheese, I am the Founder + Creative Director of Blessed is She women's ministry + community.
