I had another post planned for today but when I sat down to write, what started bubbling up was a desire to encourage you. I feel like there are those of you who need to be affirmed in some areas of your life where you’ve lost perspective and can’t see the progress you’ve made.

Feel free to take what you like from the following statements because they’re coming from my heart to yours. ? 

Girlfriend, did you know that…?

You are *actually* doing a good job. ?

You’re not a failure.

You are loving people better than you think you are.

There’s still time.

Jesus isn’t disappointed with you.

It’s not too late.

You have permission.

Get back up.

What do you want?

You can start (again) today.

You’re not alone.

(To the moms out there): Your kids aren’t permanently screwed up because of your mistakes.

It’s going to be okay.

I’m sorry. It wasn’t meant to be like this. 

Today, there is grace. It’s ok to take a break and pause for breath. It’s ok to say ‘no’ to demands that you feel like you should be saying ‘yes’ to but you don’t have capacity for. 

I don’t know where you are exactly or which of the following statements you needed to hear, but I can tell you I needed to hear some of them as I wrote them out. 

In the context of where you were and where you are now, you truly HAVE come a long way, baby. ? 

And that’s worth celebrating! Here’s to you! ?

Cheering you on every step of the way!
