Sometimes in life, well a lot of times, I feel stuck. I feel like the selfishness of others pulls my courage down and makes me shrink. While this is not a fun place to be, there is a positive side to these funks. Times like these make me reflect on what I want in life, about what kind of person I want to be. It is a catalyst for the way I want to live my life. I want to be happy. I want so much more out of this beautiful existence the Lord has given me than an everyday life.
I want to breathe in grace and exhale mercy. I want to say what I mean and mean what I say and NOT be afraid. I want to right my wrongs and learn from my mistakes.
I want to cherish the small things, like laughing in bed with Brandon and making a child smile at my job. I want to hug tightly and love deeply.
I want the mindset of Christ, to just keep moving forward against opposition.
There are so many things I want in life. I don't always know where or how to start, but I do know that life is worth more than a boring existence. I do know that the Lord equips us with exactly what and who we need when we need it; and I do know that we get unstuck and keep moving forward in pursuit of a beautiful brokenness that we call life.
