If you’re like me, sometimes I have no idea what I’m saying or how I feel, for that matter. Every day is a new day, but with it comes unexpected circumstances. (I’m sort of feeling a “With great power comes great responsibility” quote vibe lol) Raw honest moment for a second. I may feel happy and relaxed one day, and over competitive the next. I wake up not knowing if I will face a productive Jenna or a hippie Jenna.
But that’s OKAY! A normal human being is not all the time stable. That’s what makes us human! I’m here to remind you it’s OKAY not have it all together all the time. I have learned how to embrace the diversity of each day. I always like to say I’m a recovering perfectionist and overachiever (lol). I say “recovering” because I am still an overachiever. It still is a struggle when things are not working out according to plan. Sometimes, it’s not even about a “plan”, but just the need to keep things running. But you know? I’ve learned not to fight the change, to let God’s unforced rhythm of grace wash over me every day. What does it look like? Letting go.
Spring reminds us of the promise of a new season, new things, flowers blooming and the sunshine warming our faces once again (like me, in this picture lol). I’ve learned to let go, and it feels so good! Change is constant, and the earlier I learn to love the process that change is never leaving, the more I can enjoy living and thriving every day. “Letting go” means I can rest in the knowledge of the truth God has always something new for me in the corner. If one thing doesn’t work out, something better is waiting for me.
That is for you too. His goodness is never exclusive to one person only. I am not the only child of God, after all 😉 And that to me is remarkable in itself. Sometimes, I can’t help but wonder, how can God give so much to one person, when another has not much. Have you ever wondered about that too? But then I also know, He never runs out. He is an eternal source of energy, strength, goodness, kindness, Light. Therefore, the grace we receive everyday is new. There are new mercies every morning for you and I.
My hope is that you are encouraged by this post today. It is okay not to be okay. It’s okay not to get things done today, for tomorrow is there to help out. But even if things don’t get cleared out tomorrow, there’s another tomorrow. Let us be kind and gracious to ourselves, as we are to others. I think one flaw kind people have is they can be the kindest person in the world to others, but they can be the world’s worst critic to themselves. And I guess, that’s who I am speaking to today. Whoever else is out there who is like me, because that’s me!
So, what things are you looking forward this new Spring season? (wherever you are in the world)
