Five Year Journal: I used to journal all. of. the. time. when I was a little girl. But something sounds daunting about journaling as an adult. I have so much to say, so many thoughts, and not enough time to write it all down. Rather than spending an hour every night journaling my thoughts, this Five Year Journal has given me a condensed space to “adult journal” daily. To give you an idea about what these journals are, you can see what the journal entries look like here.
Label Maker: When we lived in our tiny apartment my friends used to make fun of me because I had written out some ghetto fabulous labels and put them up in our pantry. You know, for things like “breakfast items,” “condiments,” “snacks,” “salad things…” all of the normal labely things. I don’t know why I didn’t just go on Amazon and buy a label maker sooner than this month because I have been labeling things for as long as I can remember. The OCD girl inside of me feels all sorts of giddy at the thought of organization, and labeling the inner workings of my business and home. Don’t be shocked to open up our fridge and find labels on the likes of most every shelf ;).
La Croix: Soda is a weakness for me. It has been for years and it’s something I wish I didn’t enjoy. It’s not like I drink soda all the time, in fact I rarely do….except for when we go out to certain restaurants. A slice of pizza just doesn’t taste quite as nice with out an ice cold coke, you know what I mean… right? Enter La Croix. This bubbly, refreshing, sparkling water has slowly worked itself into the soda addicted space in my heart. It’s not quite the same, but I’m learning to love it and creating healthier habits!
How to Live in Fear – Mastering the Art of Freaking Out: This book was actually written by the Pastor of my church! So I bought this book to both support him and the ministry at our church, and also because I sometimes struggle with fear and anxiety more than the average person. My Pastor has struggled with panic disorder since he was a young boy and has remained very candid about his mental health from the pulpit throughout the years. It’s pretty amazing to be part of a candid church, one where you don’t need to hide who you are and the struggles in your life. People who love Jesus aren’t perfect people and we aren’t supposed to be perfect people…Jesus was the only perfect one. This book has been an incredible extension of what Lance (my pastor) preaches every Sunday. In his book he shares stories, biblical encouragement, and equips you for understanding the origins of your fear. I’m only halfway through but it’s been a huge blessing to read thus far!
Lastly, did you know that I’ve been blogging twice per week since the beginning of January!? That’s almost 30 posts to read! Yowza. That’s more than I’ve ever blogged in my life. But I’ve been loving it so much and will continue bringing content your way, twice weekly this Spring! Grab a cup of coffee and scroll through the archives: January, February, and March!
