Choose Hope

"We live in an imperfect world filled with disappointments, devastation, and difficulty. Without hope, our lives can feel absolutely purposeless and powerless sometimes. Circumstances will come our way, and we will always have a choice to make. We can choose to give up, or we can choose hope." 

- HELP, I'm Drowning by Sally Clarkson 

Today, I choose hope 💙

Happy Healthy Life- Day 8

(One of our yummy breakfasts last week... Sweet potato with cinnamon, cashew butter, and hemp hearts) 

💙 Ate real food minus two packaged vegan items I already had in the freezer and some fake grilled cheese sandwich 

💙 Drank lots of water 

💙 Took workouts and bedtime seriously 

💙 Kept my phone on airplane mode for most of each day 

💙 Read a few chapters while I soaked in an Epsom salt detox bath 

💙 Took care of a to-do list item I had been procrastinating so I could lower my stress levels!! 

This morning's workout... This simple posture work (not really part of the workout but I'm doing it at the same time) + Flat band upper body resistance work + standing abs (YouTube videos while I have Internet and my workout DVDs are packed!) + cardio... Worship playlist dance party with my babies today!

Summer Sara

Summer Sara is basically just Winter Sara, but with bare feet poking out of the blanket so she doesn't get too hot.

The world is still good.

I get so discouraged sometimes right now. The world feels so different and sad, like a fear-filled (fear-fueled?) loss factory. 

But it's not. It's still our Creator's creation. The world is still good. 

Trees, butterflies, flowers, loose tooth grins, giggles, snuggles, cold glasses of water, warm tea in cute mugs, more good books than we could possibly read in a lifetime! 

A good spine stretch with a yawn, a walk under a shady tree canopy, singing along to a favorite song. 

The dimples in a baby's knuckles, the comfort of a favorite sweatshirt, soft blankets, meals shared with loved ones. 

Hang in there, friends. The world is still good.
