  • @bemorewithless’s Soulful Simplicity just screams “January reading!” doesn’t it?
-
I love how Courtney pulls together practical advice AND the more vulnerable why-this-matters-in-your-life story in this one. (You know it’s the WHY that gets my wheels turning, always.) Plus it’s just so pretty. 😊
  • Before the show, the woman sitting next to us leaned over and asked, “So... do you know all the words?”
-
“Oh yes,” we said. “Yes yes yes.” (We have no chill.)
-
“Really? ALL of them?” She asked again, because she was maybe joking the first time?
-
“Pretty much,” we told her, and we were not kidding.
-
I would say we only cried through the second half, and that is mostly true. Except I MAY have cried at the beginning too, because IT WAS REALLY HAPPENING.
- 
I know keeping your cool is a thing, guys. I just don’t know how to do it.

  • Family movie night starts now... except for the part where we’re still discussing what to watch. 😳
-
Now taking all suggestions (for tonight or, you know, EVER). The kids are 4, 7, 10, 11, 14, and 17, but Evelyn—she’s the four year old—usually opts out. Help us out?
  • I know January is all FRESH STARTS and NEW THINGS and HERE WE GO, etc., etc., and that’s all good. Let’s do the things! Yay us! Okay.
-
But if you happen to be in the other place right now—if you are in the unmaking, the deconstruction, the falling-apart-before-you-can-even-THINK-about-putting-something-new-together—well, you know what? There is beauty in that, too. There is truth in that.
-
It might be a mess and you might have no idea where it’s going, but it’s part of the process. It’s necessary.
-
Nothing grows all the time. Some seasons are for new life, but some are for rest. Some are for enduring. Some are for coming undone. It all belongs. This is all part of it. Keep going. xo.
  • I drank the whole cup of tea before I managed to write this caption. I guess we’ll call that PRIORITIES and move along. 😄(It was chamomile with lavender and rose petals. Just: yes.)
  • Whatever today looks like for you: you’ve got this. I know it because you were MADE for this. You were made to discover your own strength. You were made to walk through to the other side. You were made to overcome. Made. For. This.
-
And this little reminder was made for you, because I want you to SEE that you were made for this. I want you to see the words to believe. xo.

P.S. - You can get your very own (totally free) Made For This print or lock screens for your phone over at my place. Just follow the link in my bio, you’ll see it.
