Joining Amber for The Letter Link-Up. This month, refreshment.
You’re also in need of refreshment with your apartment and house chores. Get to it! It’s the perfect time to start fresh, as we’ve already discussed, and you really need to start actually checking things off of your to-do lists instead of them rolling over into the next week. Go back and look at how many times that’s happened just this month – way too many, I can assure you. Put the Christmas decorations away, do all of the laundry and PUT IT AWAY, organize your clothes, donate some clothes that are just taking up space (because you know you’ll never wear it like you say you will), clean out your refrigerator of things that have sat there a little longer than you’d care to admit, and shred that stack of paper that keeps growing and growing. GET.IT.DONE. You feel bogged down and stressed because there’s a lot to be done, it’s true, but no one is going to take care of it but you. You rely on yourself now, remember? If you don’t do it, it won’t get done. But again, you can start small. Do a little each day and you’ll be done in no time. And you’ll feel much better about yourself and your home once it’s all taken care of. I promise.
There’s laughter in your future. There’s happiness and joy and contentment. There are answers to your prayers, and you will look back on this time with your head held high, because you got through it. You got through being divorced and you moved on with your life. One day, you’ll be married again and with kids (God willing), and you’ll be able to read all of your divorce posts and be proud of the woman you became through all of it. It’s easy to be bitter and angry all the time, you have a pretty good reason to be! But it takes a strong person to take the high road and get through a divorce with class. And you, my dear, have done just that. You don’t bad mouth him, you don’t give him much thought at all, and you’re all the better for it. Be refreshed in this new season because you deserve it. You need it.
Hi Brianna! Connected with you through Amber's link up and LOVE your fresh and positive attitude! I can just tell through this letter that you are truly going to kick ass this year and be so much lighter, more free, and happier at the end. Praying that the Lord brings so much love and encouragement to your sweet soul as you journey onward! 🙂 xo
Visiting from the link-up and I LOVE this. Cheers to sunnier skies and a blessed and happy new year to you <3
Oh my gosh the beauty of this, holy, YOU are cheering yourself on and I am just beside myself with joy about this! Slash more than joyful for you, I am going to be more cheerful for me because we deserve to be in our own corners cheering our own selves on.
Your heart is one that always amazes me with it's honesty and it's joy. Always honest and joy even in the tough stuff. Go girl, you're inspiring people and LOVE.
I am so glad that you found my blog last week! It still blows my mind how much we have been through that is similar. It's so nice being able to have someone to help me through it. I've always said that if I can help one person realize that they aren't alone in something through my blog than being so open and honest is 100% worth it. I never thought I would find someone that has made ME feel like I'm not alone.
You have come so far and it's truly inspirational to see that there is a light at the end of what sometimes seems like a never ending tunnel. I know that I still have a long road ahead of me that will have many ups and downs but I like knowing I'll have someone going through it with me. High five for divorce buddies 😉
