Double post of bridesmaids today but it’s International Women’s Month after all! I feel so encouraged to have been around so many women who are working hard and chasing their dreams. Just this morning I was so thankful to have a conversation with someone who is also working a full time job in addition to pursuing their real passion! I’ve been feeling sorry for myself lately as I picked up a third job at a yoga studio that I LOVE but still feeling drained about how heavy my schedule seems to be these days. I find myself thinking: *If only I could do… *If only I had more time for… *I wish this wasn’t what I had to do right now *This transition period is the worst *I’m so tired of this season But that’s just what it is. Just a season. This too shall pass and it will all be worth it. As I feel stretched and pushed to work harder and longer, I have found that the result is resilience and a renewed strength. And I would be mistaken to say that how far I’ve come is because of ME. These women - My mom, grandmothers, my aunts, my cousins, my grade school teachers, my college professors, my mentors, my bosses, my friends and kindred spirits - have played a role in making me who I am today and today I want to honor them and say thank you. You are never truly who you are because of just you. Yes, you are responsible for the way you live your life and hustle and hard work that you bring. But I am so thankful for the grace of God and these beautiful humans that He has given to impact me in some huge ways.
