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.  And today is #ThrowbackThursday! How appropriate.

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. 😉 Maybe you always feel the need to hurry or you can never get everything done. Sound familiar? Then these tips should help you out!

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.
