A Creature of Habit.

I am a creature of habit, aren't we all though? 
Whether those habits are beneficial to us or harmful. 
I tend to repeat them day in and day out.
I sit here at the my computer {for the 70 billionth time} 
I start to write. I erase it. I start to write again. I erase it. 
Honestly, I don't know why. I find myself so often trying to please people or be a specific way that I begin to lose who I am. I find myself reading other blogs or reading Facebook and thinking to myself ,"
How on earth do these people always have it together?"  
 The lies start to creep in. I start to doubt myself. 
Do you ever feel this way?
 I was talking to some girlfriends about this because when I start going down that path I start to question everything that I am doing in my life.  So, this my friends in a nutshell is why I haven't been blogging. It's not that I am too busy or that I don't have anything to say or write about. I get into a habit of believing lies and it hinders everything I do.  
I need to get back to the place of letting His grace cover me and ignoring the lies.  You would think since I am 32 I would finally start to 'get it' whatever 'it' really is I am not sure. I saw this on Pinterest yesterday and thought there is
 so much truth in this for me. 
What about you?

 Are you nice to yourself? I know I struggle with this so much. 
I'm realizing that I really need to change the way I talk to myself. I truly believe that I often believe the lies and live like they are true. So, here is to
 ignoring the lies and soaking in His truth. 
Happy Friday, Friends!


  1. Bless you for being truthful! One of the things I love about you! I think as women, we tend to compare ourselves to others, which can bring on a destructive cycle of feeling not good enough at whatever it is. One of my favorite sayings is, "What you focus on...E-X-P-A-N-D-S." Think about it. Our thoughts are energy. If we focus our thoughts, our energy...on the lies, on destructive thoughts, that's what expands...destructive thoughts which lead to feelings of inadequacy. So many people love so many things about you! NONE of us have it all together! My blog, for one, will make you feel good about yourself because I never have it together! But I'm o.k. with that. Progress, not perfection, right? Here's to soaking in His truth.

  2. P.S. I am so inspired by YOU that I even mentioned you in my January 31 post. Just because something you said was a high point in my day when I was struggling myself. See? You never know your impact.

  3. Aww I struggle with this. Let's just say that I have been sitting her typing and erasing response after response after response. Needless to say, I needed this, like really needed this. Thanks friend~

  4. Loved this post. I can always use a reminder in being true to myself. Welcome back. I have missed your posts.

  5. I think we can all feel this way at times. I have been missing your posts all week and wondering where you've been (of course just assuming you have been very busy with your life) because your words are an inspiration to me when I am feeling low and not being very kind to myself that day. So just remember that when you feel that way, there are so many of us out there feeling just the same....and we can all help each other! Thanks for being so brave to share your truth with us!

  6. Such great insights! I struggle with lies and my inner thought life, too. Blogging helps me to focus on the pure, lovely, praiseworthy things.
