Instagram & a Peak Into My Thoughts

I love it. I do. So this morning I’ll walk you through some of my thoughts as I scrolled through it. Now this is unfiltered, coming from me…and I’m broken, so don’t judge. AND, for the comments sent to me regarding appropriateness… I am not promoting or recommending or agreeing with any of the Instagram profiles. I follow them cause, well, I do. If you don’t want to, don’t. 🙂

WOW! What an amazing picture! It must be cool to be in space for a year…and confining…and lonely…and cramped. Never mind.

I NEED to remember this one. And remember it. And remember it again.

 

Insta 13

I absolutely love this post-er! These shots are so fun to watch. I sure love soccer.

 

Insta 3

EEEEWWWWWWWW!!! Brussel sprouts. UGH. I can almost smell their nastiness.

Insta 1.1

This is so cool. I need to look in to it more. I wish everyone had a mentor to go to when they are young.

Insta 2

BOOM! No it is not! Reminder: don’t get in a rut believing this is it. God wants the best for us.

Insta 1.3

This, is creepy. I’m sure he is saying something brilliant…but it is creepy. It looks like he is speaking truth to the darkness. Still creepy.

Insta 1

TRUTH! I love it! I wish more people would just do what they are built to do! They’d find the success they crave by enjoying a good day’s work.

Insta 5

UGH. I do. I know. UGH.

 

Insta 7

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

 

Insta 1.2

Man I love the water. I wish I looked that “fierce” playing in it. HA! I crack myself up!

Insta 10

Wow. I have seen quite a few people post this lately. What if everyone posting it, really truly changed their life so they put it in to action. They started loving their enemies. What a difference that would make! I am so glad God worked on this with me. I can’t imagine life without the people He has softened my heart for.

Insta 12

BOOM! That is right!!! I wish more believed this!!! (God, help more of your people to see that they are the true movers and shakers in faith. They just need to answer your call!) – I had to stop and pray there. Then

Ooooo, look how cute those girls are! I miss being cute.

Insta 9

That is RIGHT!!!! Learn it, Live it, THEN share it. Otherwise shhhhhhh.

Insta 8

That is so me! I’ll have to show Chad. I love that he (my hubby) is so funny. Can I count laughing at his jokes on my fitness pal? Is that cheating? Could I eat more calories? Hmmm.

Insta 4

WAAAAAAAAAA. I want to travel!!!! Oh, well. Heaven will be pretty remarkable so I won’t have missed anything.

Insta 11

And then I posted this.

This is the way I want to start each day. Not walking in to it, but praying and running in ready to do whatever God asks me to do with all the strengthen I have!!!!

There was a scary walk in to my mind as I journey through Instagram.

What I learned today…I am encouraged, discouraged and challenged by social media. And it’s okay.

What Am I Doing?

So in 2016 I have decided to goal myself to post at least one time a day.

I will be posting whatever I have learned or something that I have been thinking about that day.

This will probably turn in to a horribly written journal that only I read…but I am okay with that.

If you happen to fall across this and you don’t like it…don’t tell me as I have HUGE inadequacy issues, so I don’t want to hear it.

If you like it…feel free to let me know as Affirmation and Gifts are my Love Languages (5 Love Languages) – Feel free to lean heavy on the Gifts.

Today I learned that sometime you need to throw tradition out the window.

I have always been excited to wake up January 1st and watch Bob and Stephanie bring the Rose Parade to life in the quiet of my home as the rest of the family slowly wakes up.

Change of Tradition

  1. This morning I woke up to find our downstairs body to body with teen boys sleeping, so turned it on in my room.
  2. I turned it on in my room, while my husband was NOT snoring next to me…;-)
  3. My husband woke up and did NOT go to start making us our traditional Jan.1st breakfast, but instead said, “Let’s go to breakfast”. And started to get ready.
  4. We went to Denny’s.

All of this was a PUSH for me! What happened to watching the parade?!?! Sure, it’s on 15 more times…but it’s TRADITION!

Instead of pushing in with my whine and thinking only about myself, I looked at my husband…the guy who LOVES breakfast anytime of the day…and saw that breaking this tradition, this one morning, would bring HIM joy.

So I shut my mouth, tossed on some clothes and went to breakfast.

Good decision, as the happiness I saw on his face, and the conversations around the table were worth it. I wouldn’t remember what float was what in 3 days…but now I have a memory of discussions and my man’s face that will last a lifetime.

Today I learned to – Make good choices when looking at traditions and make sure you can bend if needed.
