Conquer, Follow, Feed and Worry Less.
Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Before I start off this week's Finish This, I wanted to share a little more about last week's Finish This. The topic for part of it was mistakes and what we learn from them. As I was writing it about my engagement and telling my parents, I realized I had never told my blog the whole story. So to all of my friends from the Finish This link-up, you can read the whole story about my best mistake and the whole engagement story here.
I conquer fear… the best I can. I'm a worrier and that generally makes me a 'fraidy cat. I think of all the consequences and usually fear them, but I push on the best I can and make my way through.
I follow my heart… with everything I do. I usually try to balance my decisions between my heart and my head. If what my heart is telling me is logical, I try to follow it.
I feed my soul by… doing things I love. I feel like if I am in my happy place alone cutting glass and preparing it to be made into a stained glass piece, then I'm feeding my soul then. Often times, I need to feed my soul by talking to God though. I usually get this huge calming feeling after I've had a good conversation with Him and that helps me tremendously
I used to worry about change but then I… realized that things were going to happen that are out of my control anyway. I ran across a quote from Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, a Southern self-help author and talk show host, who I absolutely love. In her books Sue Ellen's Girl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy, she has a comment which she is referring to children as they grow, but in reality it applies to anything and helps me worry less.
I also wanted to thank all of my new friends from this link-up who were excited to learn more about my life and my [complicated] story.
