Hi there! I hope your week is going well so far. ❤ Happy Monday to you!
This is a post that I have been wanting to write and share for well over a week now. I’ve started drafts, deleted drafts, brainstormed the basic idea – have you ever had that happen before? Sometimes, it takes days (or even weeks!) of working on a post before it becomes what you originally wanted it to be. 🙂 That is my situation with this post. It has transformed itself into a more personal post, rather than the motivational piece I had initially written. I’m happy to be sharing it with you now!
I have mentioned before that these past couple of months have held a lot of meaning for me and my family. We’ve been through highlights and low points, experienced easy days and harder days … sometimes, a single day contained a bit of everything. Since Isabella was born (and she turns two months old today – that’s just crazy!), I have been learning and experiencing a lot – and not just with my family, although there’s been much of that, as well!
I have also started down the path of conquering all of my past troubles and fears, one aspect at a time … with my Heavenly Father by my side.
I am at a good place now where I can face the traits about myself that I absolutely abhor. Among these things are un-forgiveness, impatience, fear, and indecision, and through circumstances I’m suddenly finding myself in daily, the Lord is leading me through my healing journey, one step at a time.
I could not be more thankful, because I can see that I’m making progress, which I have thought at times wasn’t possible. Daily, the Lord is reminding me that all things are possible through Him!
Since I started Dreaming of Guatemala last winter, this outlet has provided me with so many blessings. I love having a place to inspire others and share motivation from my life, but I don’t want anyone to ever think that because most of my posts are upbeat, it means that my life is easier than anyone else’s. We all have off days, myself included, and there are definitely things that I do or have happen that are less than glorious! This is why I share more vulnerable posts at times, because I want others to know that we all go through things. Even if I don’t write about the downsides of my life as much, they’re still there. May we all grow through what we go through! ❤
There’s no shame in talking about what we face. It may be hard or embarrassing at times, but I know how much it inspires me to know that others are facing and conquering the same things I’m going through! If you’re struggling with something, whether it’s a trait I mentioned myself having or not, please know that there is hope. There will be bad days, but that does not in any way mean that we have a bad life. Making progress and taking steps in the right direction takes time, but the beautiful outcome is completely worth it!!!
I hope and pray that you are doing well! If you’d like, let me know in the comments below:

We can do this!!! 🙂 Have a blessed week!
