I love instagram. Seriously. If you haven't followed Adrienne's Essentials on my Adrienne's Essentials Instagram ya need to do so lol. I show a little personal side of myself over there, but most of the time it's just pretty pictures :)
BTW, I did knit my scarf lol. The pattern is Gaptastic. I love it.
I took this picture yesterday after having a hard, hard, HARD day. When I tell you I cried, cried, cried, prayed, cried then cried some more I did.
I've been doing a LOT of reflecting the past couple of months. Even more so the last few weeks. It has been pure insanity around these parts.
I talked to a friend the other morning (like when my phone rang at 7:25 am in MY time zone I was like whoaaa lol) and we talked for a couple of hours and it was just what I needed.
and blogless Lisa (Hey Boo! LOL) These ladies keep me on my toes.
Even though I talked to Singlema last week, something I went through yesterday made me think about ONE thing she said that really made me take pause," You can't fix everything Adrienne." Say WHATTTTTTTTTTTTT?!?!
I'm a perfectionist at heart. When I make a mistake, I'm angry and upset but mostly disappointed in myself. I really can't fix everything. Not at all. I do try but I'm trying harder to just do my best. Give it my all and be happy knowing that I did the best I could do.
I want to be the best wife, mom, friend that I can be. If I mess up along the way that's fine. No one is perfect. I did my BEST. That is all that counts.
I'm trusting God to give me the strength I need to walk though all these different situations that arise. He might not fix it right now, but He will give me the strength I need to get through it :)
I've noticed over the past few weeks people will try to use what they think you want to see or hear to pacify a situation. I want to encourage ya'll, don't pacify the situation. Be honest and straight up about whatever is going on and tell the truth. Don't say what you think the other person wants to hear. Be honest. Because when the truth really does come out, it's just bad.
Alright, that's all I have for today.
Y'all be encouraged! I know I am :)
