I have always loved words. As a teacher, I joke with my kiddos that the reason I became a teacher is so that I could talk as much as I wanted and people would have to listen. My nickname growing up...babbling Brooke. I just love words. Sometimes I like to keep words to myself, other times I am quick to use my words without thinking. I am working on that 2nd one!
I love other people's words. There is no question that I think most people out there are smarter than me, so I love to hear other people's ideas on life, faith, love, really anything!
As a single gal, sometimes the words I hear in my head and heart can get twisted. Those words I hear that tell me I am not enough. I will never be enough. That I will always be alone. No one wants me. That I will always be waiting for something more. And while I know those words are not true, that I am not in a waiting or holding pattern, sometimes I can get stuck in that place. Anyone else relate?
I don't want to wait. I want to live now! I want these years, these days to be full of joy, happiness, sorrow and growth. I don't want to just be sitting around waiting or striving to be something that I know I can't possibly be.
Maybe you are in this same boat. Waiting....maybe it is time to stop the waiting and to live!
So today it is someone else's thoughts from their blog which brought me encouragement and challenged my view of waiting! Hopefully they will provide some encouragement for you today....
Be encouraged, dear friends! Get out there and LIVE!
