Dear Me,

Today is a good day so I'm writing to make an official note for you to come back to. There's a few things that can only come from me to you (me?) and not from anyone else. So, here you go. You're welcome. And floss, would ya? Geez. It's not exactly difficult.

Okay, let's get straight to it. The main thing is this:

You are not a victim, but a willing participant in this life we've created.

No matter what happens with each opportunity, each possibility, you know you were called to this. Your heart will break, your hopes will rise and fall. Sometimes for selfish reasons, sometimes because those align with what breaks God's heart. But you're in the right place.

Think of what's worse? The alternative. Knowing what you're called to, knowing what you have to offer as a mom but being too fearful to do anything about it. Fearful of a broken heart. Fearful of there not being enough money. Fearful of risk and change.

Nope, you're in the right place. You can do this.

Let go of your timelines and just enjoy this season, you'll never get it back.

Stop looking at other people's stories. They have nothing to do with yours. Yours is hand picked and every single thing is intentional about it. God is always doing more than one thing at a time and it's not your job to try to figure that out, so again, just live in this season. You worked hard to get here and need to live out loud in it. There's nothing missing from it.

There's nothing missing from it.

Now go squeeze that little Mayan, he's getting bigger every day and it's just going to get worse.

Loving that last paragraph -- so true, so so true! I think I'm going to read and re-read that for awhile until it totally sinks in and I can embrace that for this season in my life! Thank you!
