Skirt: Princess Highway from Dangerfield (in Myer)
One of my favourite things to wear in summer is a breezy skirt and top. You can't really tell in the photo but my they are actually heart shaped polka dots. One of the reasons I was so attracted to the skirt.
As I mentioned in my last post, I've been feeling very flat. I am happy to say that the feeling is slowly fading. It's been a mixture of things like writing in my journal, making a few little bits and pieces, talking to Jason and lots of praying. I had a mini breakdown session yesterday when I started telling Jason about how I'm just living each day, doing the same thing and not really making a difference.
I'm not sure what set me off but I started having this internal struggle with myself and my thoughts. In the end I decided to write a list of things I want to do and achieve and Jason and I also went to the Lifeline Bookfest. Books make me happy so I spent a few hours digging around for books and admiring those that volunteered for the week. Lifeline is a charity organisation so all the money raised will go to them.
And this morning at church I felt so inspired and blessed. I realised how selfish I'm being, by just thinking about my own happiness, when there are so many other people around me that struggle so much more. So my lists now also include how I can make more of a difference and impact this world in some way. I know we were created for something more than to just live each day the same.
This verse really impacted me....
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that should walk in them." Ephesians 2:8-10.
I know I've written a lot more than I usually do but I think this year, I will be sharing more about myself and my life. It might get a little more personal. Hope that's alright :)
Have a wonderful week!
