Yesterday was the first day of Spring and we were greeted with snow in Kansas City. How was the weather near you? I couldn't do anything, but laugh and slightly complain in my chipmunk voice on snapchat. LOL the weather reminds me that we have no control over God's plan. The same rings true with falling in love, losing a job or receiving random gifts from those that you love.
I am always amazed at how God works things out. I don't always like or agree with the way things go, including the weather or the current state of my love life. But none of that means that my life isn't going exactly the way it should be. Do you ever feel like you're wasting time or energy on things that don't matter for your future? I get that. Honestly, I struggle with turning down good opportunities thinking that every opportunity is a blessing. With time I'm learning to say no and that sometimes time and space mean more than an additional project making extra income.
In this day and age, we are all coached to "grind harder" and "go bigger," but honestly sometimes I get tired and want to tune the entire world out. I am always busy and I love 90% of the things that consumer my time, but I still get weary because I'm human. Do you feel like there are never enough hours in the day?

Funny thing is, it's 7:42am and I'm typing this blog post. Which means I didn't prep this weekend or send off my titles, images and links to my intern. #bummer I am saying all of this to say that we all need to give ourselves and even others more grace. Sometimes life happens or God wrecks our plans, but that doesn't mean give up or let it go altogether. A lot of times, hard times mean you need to change the method of how you do things.
