Understanding

Do you ever wish someone understood how you were feeling?

I know that feeling…

Lately I’ve been feeling like an anomaly.

Like my experience and challenges and hurts are so different from everyone else. I find myself trying to find someone who understands.

I know you’ve felt that way too.

Maybe for you your marriage was hard, and you were relieved to have it end.

Maybe your marriage was amazing, and you felt heartbroken and betrayed when it was over.

Maybe you feel like a failure.

Maybe you feel judged.

Maybe you feel hopeless or alone.

Maybe you feel a lot of things and you seem to be so different from everyone else.

Can you relate?

This is always the time that I remind myself of one of my core beliefs – God understands. At the deepest level, he knows exactly what I’m feeling. He cares that I feel that way.

God knows you.

He understands how you feel.

Even if no one else does – he gets it.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it.

Gifts

I love gifts.

And it’s my birthday this week too.

I love to give people gifts.  I love to gift myself.

Gifts are fun and thoughtful.  Gifts are a treat.

I didn’t used to gift myself at all.  I always went without.  I didn’t think having things I liked was a big deal to be honest.   I didn’t think my desires in life mattered much.

And one day, I started to realize- they did.  I started paying attention to what I liked and what I wanted.  I decided that I was worth paying a little attention to and that it was okay for me to do that.

The more I noticed what was important to me and what I liked… the more I found myself.  I started to have so many ideas for what I wanted in my future.  I started to come back to life after feeling a whole lot of nothing inside for a long time.

Will you give yourself the gift of paying attention to what matters to you?  I hope you will.
