Some of my favorite daily blogs are written by women who are incredibly honest and real. Sometimes they make a sponsored post or recap a vacation, but they usually talk about real experiences and feelings that have forced them to become a better version of themselves. They’re very good at writing about these things and it’s something I’d like to improve upon. I think this starts with meditation, devotionals, and actually taking time to sit in silence. Does that sound silly? I think it’s actually very necessary in this fast-paced world.
I’m am a flawed human being. (We all are, actually.) My temper resembles a rollarcoaster and I am very argumentative. I have a husband that puts up with all that, but I’d like to be better. I’d like to be an even-tempered mom someday. I want to be a unbiased listener and a good friend to my loves. I want my decisions and my honesty to be guided by a grateful, patient, and open heart.
I would like to be invested in things that I truly care about. I want to watch less television and read more. I want to finish the novel that I’m writing and let others read it. I want to serve others (preferably those with cold noses and 4 legs) with a happy, energized heart. I’ve actually noticed my heart changing lately and I think it’s for the better.
I don’t want to completely change myself. I will always love Harry Potter and pull my dogs close when I lay down at night. I have an incredible support system made up of friends and family. Physically I feel good- You won’t see me in a bikini and my face looks like a hormonal teenager, but I don’t dislike me. I think that my goal is to turn my insides so positive that it radiates through my exterior and affects those around me.
How do you stay positive throughout the day? Any meditation advice? Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
