Friday Feels

My sweet friend, Jules, gifted me with a perpetual inspiration calendar over 10 years ago. The thought for June 2 is by Gloria Gaither and reads, “Memories, important yesterdays, were once todays.  Treasure and notice today.” and it got me thinking.  “Todays” can be hard, y’all.  Life can be hard.  While my world isn’t perfect, it is pretty damn close.

I have the best family and friends out there.  Seriously, my husband is a smart, kind, hilarious, logical, and loves me as is.  To him, I’m perfection.  Don’t even get me started on my sweet Luke… everyday, I get to see this 15 year old boy man love the world like Jesus does and I find myself blown away that I was chosen to be his momma.

I am a Salesforce Admin which makes me a part of the maddest tribe known to man.  I get to stand with, support, and be supported by a wizard, theGifSquad, Trailhead, AwesomeAdmins, OHANA.  I mean, rarely is there a day, Sunday – Saturday, that I don’t have some sort of interaction with my Ohana. Can you say. “DREAM JOB”?

So, yeah – my world is pretty great, but…. it can still be hard.

This week, I’ve felt overwhelmed, guilty, sad, hurt, motivated, blocked, less than, wanted, ignored, funny, smart, frustrated, loved, burdened, hopeful, scared, psychotic, worried, joyful, and the list truly goes on and on.  When you love big, when you think big, when you live big, you freaking feel big and my goal is to do a better job at appreciating that.

If you have found yourself in the middle of a blessed life, but still finding that life can be tough, I hope that it helps to know that you aren’t alone.  This girl is cheering in your corner and certain that you’re kicking butt.

Notice TODAY.

Treasure TODAY.

Even if TODAY feels like this:


It is the hard “todays” that become the “important yesterdays”.
