Most women have spent their whole lives envying one another and with that…. it’s accompanied by a hint of disdain on their lips. The bloody thing we call comparison is a nasty weed that has a tendency, even when we think we’ve gotten rid of it…. It comes growing back full force, and I will be the first to admit it.
It’s about time we change that, don’t you think? Although the struggle is most certainly real, choosing to find the gold in the women we envy brings about a supernatural transformation. One that only occurs when you silence the horrible feelings that are raging inside of you and calling to the inherent goodness and irrevocable beauty that is within all of us.
This is my T.R.I.B.E and it is ever changing and always growing. We desire to cultivate a movement that finds people in every walk of life, choosing intention and above all loving others so fiercely others begin to wonder why.
Are we perfect? NO FRIGGEN WAY! We readily admit we are not even hot messes, we’re ugly, snot covered messes with a heaping side of crazy. Yea! That’s us. (And I am 90% sure that my lady friends are okay with me calling them crazy.)
Some of us are finding healing and losing weight, and then some of us are gaining weight (caugh caugh ME!). Others are experiencing celebrating their birthday for the first time because they we’re never allowed to before. Some of our families are growing bigger and becoming more complete and then another is patiently cleaning blue paint off the ceiling and furniture because a balloon popped by accident that happened to be filled with paint. (Hint: she was testing a cool way on how to do a gender reveal.)
Point is, we’re all in this together. I know people have their small and massive differences but we are all human and the sanctity on a human life and their heart has never and will never change. The only change we desire to cultivate is that of increased hope. No matter how you’re feeling and what you’re going through, that season of which you are going through has the possibility to develop not only your character but those around you.
“Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of love. This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing. In fact, we should come together even more frequently, EAGER to ENCOURAGE and urge each other onward as we anticipate the day dawning.”
Lovely endeavors to you, my darlings.
