I've found it so easy to get swept up in the busyness of life lately. Is anyone else with me??
The Western world mentality is all about working ourselves until we're all worn out. We surround ourselves in the craziness of life without taking moments to step aside and clear the air.
We find our value in our busyness. Probably one of the toughest truths I've been chewing on.
For myself, I've realized that in order to truly grow, I need to walk away from the busy backdrop and step in front of a blank canvas. But that's the scariest part.
We are so used to the craziness, that stillness is something so foreign. Starting afresh is something many of us aren't willing to choose. We find comfort in what we know and aren't willing to step in front of that blank canvas.
But that's where we are stretched the most. I have found that breaking free from the busyness allows me to learn more about who I am and who I'm meant to be. And ultimately, I am becoming a better version of myself. Still far from perfect. Thankfully, Jesus loves me, even in my imperfection, to give me a second chance at life.
Let's be bold and step out of our comfort zones to shine in front of those blank canvases.
Speaking of shining, Rocksbox helps me do that on the regular. It's so fun getting 3 pretty pieces of jewelry sent to my door. It's always an unknown what will be in each box, but their stylists are pretty great at choosing the perfect pieces!
Have you tried it yet? Don't forget that you can get one whole month FREE with code joannaxoxo! And yes, it's unlimited, so you can return your box as many times as you want to get different pieces.
