Where have you been?!!? We have been missing you! The Pink Pinata team is back in action. During these few months off players on our team have had babies, graduated from college, traveled internationally, gotten new jobs, had some bling placed on their pretty little finger, and have received some much-needed insight from the Lord. It got me thinking…how many times do we come up on a summer or are celebrating a new year when we look back in reflection and say “this year went by so fast” or “I felt like summer just snuck up on us.”
Well I have, and I have also decided to not wait until a year has flown by to stop and reflect on all the blessings the Lord has given us, stopping to celebrate the wins, and have meaningful conversations with those I love. I don’t know about you, but I want years to go by slowly, not in blink of an eye, where we’re left stuck in only reflection mode. Let’s not give the cliché answer “im just so busy” when people ask us how we are. I’m choosing to make this summer and the rest of the year living and not only reflecting back on how the busyness that got a hold of me. Let’s celebrate the fact that we have life to live! So if you’re stuck in a job you don’t love, are frustrated in a relationship you are in, have family drama happening around you, stop…take a deep breath…and say to yourself “I am going to LIVE today! Thank you Lord for the crazy blessing you have given me of LIFE!” I for sure take that for granted. Everything in life will change, but I for sure do not want to miss the journey of if happening. Let’s give ourselves the time to actually hear God and see Him in the creative ways He wants to show Himself to you. I’m refusing to take pride in being busy, like it’s a badge of honor to be overwhelmed with things to do. So Boo Ya busy life…and hello to slowing it down and living in thankfulness.
