The first day I began this daily blogging challenge, I shared about jumpstarting my mental health. Then I expressed how I’m choosing gratitude anyway. If that’s not enough, I told y’all yesterday that this week is all about reflection. Well, are you ready to see if I kept to these lifestyle changes?
The short answer is yes!
It feels good taking the time to do what’s special and meaningful to me. I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed out on self-care, and the little things mean so much! My family and I have faced different trials and testings in this season. As a result, we are prioritizing each other and the things that matter the most.
Working out, eating cleaner, playing around, digging in the Word of God, and resting better is life! Listen, I won’t front. This is not easy, but my goodness, it’s worth every bit. I didn’t make the mark every day, but every day is a win. Perspective has been a game-changer, for sure. No, this doesn’t mean that I even feel okay every day (and don’t!), but it is well. Periodt!
If I never knew what the goodness of the Lord looked like, I am blessed to witness it daily. Yet, God is maturing me to see that it goes beyond the answers that I desire to the prayers that I pray. I see His goodness because I know that He is good. Regardless of all else, I’m anchored in knowing the truth—God is absolutely good. If He didn’t give me anything else, He’s given me all that I need because I know that I belong to Him, and He belongs to me.
For that, I’m grateful!
What about you? How have you kept with what you began to do this month? If you strayed a little, think about what you need to do to get back on track and receive the grace you need for it.
