Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins [it overlooks unkindness and unselfishly seeks the best for others]. 1 Peter 4:8 (AMP)*
It’s the month of love, and chocolate, and flowers. Tons of focus will be placed on relationships – are you in one, is it a good one, is it fulfilling, exhilarating, meeting your every need…?
Are you Bachelor fans? Because, a few episodes back, Lace said something profound. Amid tear-stained cheeks, she said, “I have a lot of work to do on myself. I want to be able to offer you more. I just feel like going home might be easier and just continuing working on myself and trying to better myself,” she concluded. “You can’t love someone else until you truly love yourself and I don’t know if I truly love myself just yet.”
So mature and self-aware. I wanted to applaud and then find every single woman I know to relate the same truth. You are enough. Even without a boyfriend or husband. Plus, there are so many amazing opportunities you can grab hold of right now. So don’t put of dreams or adventures until the next step or next season, do it now! Speaking of relationships, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are pretty awesome. Have you seen their Africa video yet? It’s had over 4 million views and has made several media outlets. See if you can watch and not smile, or sing along!
I make much of simple, everyday joys. Finding the incredible in the ordinary. Viewing life and motherhood through the lens of joy, seeing profound beauty, and gaining peace throughout the mundane. ShelbieShue is an affectionate childhood nickname and I still answer to the call.
