Live Your Life

by Jesse on August 1, 2012

I have been rather introspective lately. Thinking about my goals and the direction I want to take, personally and with my family. I like to periodically evaluate where I am. Figure out where I can be better. I have already made so many changes this year and am happy with where I’m going. Though I recently realized those changes are still all within my comfort zone. We had the opportunity to go out of town last weekend, meet some new people, and try out a new restaurant spot. I became aware of how nervous that made me. Maybe it was being in a different city, different people, a different dinner spot. I’m not sure. It turned out to be a great trip. Our new friends treated my children like their own. That always speaks volumes to me. I think that is a love language for me. Loving my kids is showing me love. =)

Life is such an adventure. Never knowing exactly where it will take you. I think I have mentioned before my love of music. It inspires me daily. Encouraging words playing the soundtrack for life. So when I came across this song recently it spoke to me, and where I am at. Growing and needing to open my heart to the love of true friends. People that replace pain and hurt from past relationships from people who were {suppose} to love you unconditionally.

Here are a few lines from my newest favorite song find…

Find your light,

Don’t hide from who you are

Rise before you fall

in hope for something more

Live if you really want to

Live if you really want to

Live if you really want to

Have an inspired Thursday!

As you can tell from my blog posts, I’ve been looking at life a lot lately as well. So glad you are on a path that you are happy with. You are a wonderful role model for other young mothers, like myself, who are shooting for what’s best over what’s simply good.
