This journal page just makes me happy…. It has the best grungy goodness! But still has the softness of the flowers.
I really wanted to let out how I was feeling in this season, how I feel like everything is hard and yet how tender and right at the surface are all of my emotions.
How life can feel hard and soft at the same time. How we as humans can do the hard things and still be tender.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a season of hard, where everything feels like I’m sloshing through mud, how even the littlest things can bring me to tears or frustration.
I know it will pass because I’ve been here many times before, but the waiting is hard. And I know that the way through is gratitude…
Small actions of noticing good, of noticing smiles. Small actions like naps and space, like prayer and meditation, small actions like letting the tears fall. Gratitude for friends, kids, Creator and my partner. It’s the small bright lights in each day that help me on this journey.
The hard seasons also brings clarity… that’s one of the things I’m most thankful for during this time. I become very clear about how I want to spend my time, money, energy. How I want to live and simplify things.
So if you’re in this kind of season, know that it’s just that…. a season. And it can have a purpose if you let it.
You are loved!!
Ps… I had a lot of issues with my camera turning off…. ahem….. oh this season…. So I’m sorry and hope you understand.
