Devotional Journaling | #Inktober Throwback

It’s been November for exactly one week. I’m currently loving the fall colors, even with all the recent downpours trying to wash them away! October was a great month with a much needed slightly slower pace. I didn’t blog as much as anticipated, but I feel much of the content wasn’t ready yet and I had to learn to be okay with that. As a fact, I’m still working hard to get a few things (including some pretty cool freebies) ready for y’all.Β  And today is #ThrowbackThursday! How appropriate.

Maybe this month can be your chill month! Don’t over-think things, and spend more time with Jesus. I promise that’s going to make a huge difference.

Devotional journaling is a great way to express what you’re feeling, write down thoughts, prayers, favorite or impact-ful scripture, ideas, and all kinds of other things. I like to use my journal as a space where I can put down anything.

In my previous devotional journals, IΒ  wrote a lot of scripture and little thoughts I had about them. But I rarely pick them back up and read them. Why? Because they’re so bland and boring. Not that the content is particularly bland and boring, but each page looks exactly the same. Nothing stands out. I used the same blank ink, the same handwriting, and wrote everything in the same style paragraphs. Continue reading “Devotional Journaling | #Inktober Throwback”

7 Ways to Gain More Freedom Every Day Summer Edition

Who likes to live burned out and exhausted? Yeah, I didn’t think anyone did. πŸ˜‰ Maybe you always feel the need to hurry or you can never get everything done. Sound familiar? Then these tips should help you out!

1. Wake Up Earlier

This has had an amazing impact on my own life. Having an extra half hour or hour in the morning will allow you to feel like you are in control your day rather than your day controlling you.

Make sure you are still getting seven to eight hours of sleep every night. You may need to adjust a little and go to bed earlier too (It isn’t as hard as you think!).

2. Take ten minutes to relax/reflect/pray

Put away your phone or computer or whatever your mind is on, and make the time to totally chill out for ten minutes. This is a great thing to do early in your morning. Refresh you mind and inner self, and you’ll find your brain and body much more inspired, refreshed, and equipped for the great day ahead.

Quote of the Week 3

Hmm… how many times do we catch ourselves being grumpy because someone else is grumpy? Uh-huh, thought so. Now let’s switch that around. How many times do you smile when you see someone else smile? It works both ways! They’re both very contagious – just saying. πŸ™‚
