Emotions--they get are the BEST of me.

I'm an emotional girl. You knew that...

Some call it sensitive, heart led, hot mess, a cluster, emotional furball.


I feel happy when I'm "put together"  --hair, shoes, make up, outfit, lips, ACCESSORIES the whole bit.
I feel blessed when I look at my life's journey over the past 10 years. ---and that the people who mean the most  to me are still. here.
I feel confused  when I try and give a definition to the word NUCLEAR. No clue what it is...
I feel joy when I look in my little girl's eyes. and see that we share the same color.

I feel pain when I stub my NAM toe on my bed frame!  again!
I feel content when I see a pretty ruffled necklace that I MADE ready to go make someone else happy.
I feel frustration when I think about what I want to be when I grow up. I still don't know.
I feel carefree when I'm singing in my car...LOUD.
I feel loved when I'm sitting on the couch with Scott watching Lilly dance to her favorite song.
I feel hurt when someone criticises my work.
I feel dumb when I realize that I had a spelling mistake on my blog, facebook, email, letter to a parent... HATE THOSE!!

I feel HOPEFUL when I think about the Lord's plan for me and my family. He has a plan for me...and the hot mess of emotions that I sometimes am.

All my feelings make ME.  Just like your feelings  make YOU.  Don't be ashamed of them.

Emotions DON'T get the best of me. THEY ARE THE BEST OF ME.

  5. I think I wrote this, you desribed me to a T. I love being human, we all are so alike it is unreal. But yet we are completely unique. I agree so much with what you said about God's plan, he has one and we just need to remember to trust that when we feel our emotions are running amuck. Love this post girly!
