|The inspiration for it all :)|
And then...something incredible happened. Through a series of crazy events, in 4 short months, my life was transformed. I found a great church, started my own consulting company, made wonderful friends, joined two amazing volunteer organizations, was asked to co-lead a women's group, and enrolled in Nutrition School.
Oh. And I found my life's purpose.
By no means am I saying that I have anything all figured out, or that my life is now easy. But. When I decided to focus my life on God and his plan for me, everything started falling into place.
One of the most important changes I made was to practice gratitude daily. To actively seek beauty and loveliness every single day, even when I didn't feel like it. Especially when I didn't feel like it. This simple activity shifted my brain from feeling sorry for myself and depressed about everything I didn't have, to being grateful and overwhelmed at everything I did have.
"Seeking Lovely" was inspired by Philippians 4:8, which is easily one of my favorite verses ever. "Whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, worthy of praise, think about these things."
I promise to find one lovely thing every day to share with you. My hope is that you're inspired to do the same, and pass it on.
