I know like I know like I know that I am loved. This is something that so many people struggle to accept. We look at ourselves and wonder how anyone could love us with all our past mistakes and physical imperfections. But once you reach a place of KNOWING who you are and accepting that you are loved, you can easily begin to love others unconditionally too.
I love chicken pops. I know it sounds like a totally mediocre thing to be saying here, but that just shows how much I love the stuff! I mean, you can keep your sushi and caviar. I don’t GET sushi. Its raw fish. Does everyone know that? Just give me pops. Don’t judge me, just love me J
I read a lot of Francine Rivers. I find her books to be encouraging and inspirational. They always make me think deep and reflect on who I am and who I want to be. But I’m generally not fussy – I love drama and intrigue filled story lines. Same goes for movies. I don’t do blood and guts, action or horror. It’s like, I don’t want things like that in my actual life, so why bother having them in my imaginary life.
I want my children to grow up feeling as if they can conquer the world! I want them to be kind to others. I want them to be blessed so much that they are able to freely and willingly be a blessing to other people. I want them to be happy first. Money and riches and fame are not the most important thing.
I wear jeans a lot. I’m the kind of girl that totally admires when people can pull off a “now” look. But when I go shopping, I would rather buy classic pieces that would be socially acceptable for at least 5 years J I think it’s also because I was a single mom at a really young age. So I basically went through my 20’s being very cash conscious – always aware of how I spend my money, making sure that each purchase was worth every cent. So give me jeans, a tshirt and some pumps and I’m okay. And the funny thing is, I am not in the same place (financially) anymore – but those habits are hard to shake!
I need a new cellphone in my life. Not the most profound thing to need, right? But I’ve had the same phone for 4 years (see “what I wear” for reasons why) and I think it’s time to move on now. My husband and son have been trying to school me on this whole “swipe” screen thing… it’s a journey… but I think I’m finally ready!
