Hello beautiful world,
If you haven’t read my posts, I have been on a serious path of self discovery. Who I am inside, outside, etc. I have started with the path of reflection and sometimes this can lead you down a serious rabbit hole. I am trying to stay focused. LOL. Easier said than done… I assume.
Anyhow, during this reflection I have read this wonderful… I mean fantastically wonderful book Carry on Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton! First, let me say, I find her and her ” Brutiful” life inspiring! Not only has she inspired me one sentence at a time but I have been able to really apply POSITIVE in my life.
I know, I know… I am sure all of you are rolling your eyes and saying…
” oh, here is where we get the speech on the ” power of positive thinking”.
I am not going to do that. I think we all know that speaking positive words into our lives is well worth it and it will lead you down a much happier life, etc. But Carry on Warrior is different. She talks about how life is hard and how she accepts it that way.
I haven’t ever looked at the world like this before. I have always been trying to come up with ways for the world to not be so difficult. I mean, sometimes you can be as positive as you can possibly can be and the day just doesn’t turn out like you thought it would. Inside the pages of this book, she helps you understand, with her own stories on life, that life isn’t always going to be easy or perfect. But that is okay and how we accept that.. is important.
This weekend I spent a lot of time trying to really dig into the concepts she was trying to teach and/or share. This meant I had to re-read this book. HA HA. I wanted an excuse anyway and plan on reading it again with friends. 🙂
Let me tell you, I am not only inspired, but I am happier living with the idea that life is ” Brutiful”.
Once step at a time I am reflecting on what makes me a warrior of this world.
I am proud of myself and that is a great feeling
I hope you check out her book and/or blog at momastery… or maybe this inspires you to read a book over again that you were inspired by.
Whatever that is, I hope it makes you smile, even when life is BRUTAL!
Stay STRONG in this ” Brutiful” world!
