Happy Wednesday!! Hope that you are having a splendid week thus far!! I’m not sure about you, but as a momma of four littles, I need a little boost of encouragement or a reboot here and there. This week, I had the privilege to get away with a few friends and hear someone share at a ladies event. It was the perfect reminder. She started off by reading this:
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me, and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
She asked three questions that all of us should ask ourselves daily:
Who put this yoke on me? Who am I trying to please? What is motivating me?
Let me be the first one to answer these questions. So, I tend to overcommit myself so the stress that I have been battling is totally self inflicted. Also, I hate letting others down. People pleasing (kid pleasing, husband pleasing, friend pleasing, brand pleasing) can still be a motivation for me which it is impossible to please others. So, what is the solution of living a grace filled, stress free, non-people pleasing life? Keep company with Him, and we will learn to live freely and lightly!!
On another encouraging note, like many of you, I am always on the hunt for easy, everyday outfits that can be worn to lunch with the girlfriends, to a school event with kids or to date night with my hubs. This top from River Island is perfect to wear to any of those events. Just swap out the jeans for a denim skirt and booties, black pencil skirt and heels, or add a cardigan and over the knee boots. The options are limitless.
Here are a few other favorites that would easy to style from day to night:
