Five Minute Friday: Graceful

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

Five Minute Friday: Graceful


this is kind of making me want to cry.  graceful?  i'm not.  i mean, i have moments where the words come out eloquently or the movement looks smooth...but not usually.  i feel like graceful people are the ones that are comfortable in their own skin and with their own thoughts.  i feel like i'm too often at a comparison point...

...i wish my house was decorated like hers...

...i wish my meals were as healthy and good as she can make...

...i wish i knew how to get my kids to listen like hers do...

...and on and on it goes until i have so devalued what i can do, what i am doing, to the point of insignificance.  i wish my confident self would tap me on the shoulder and remind me that i have a three year old who needs trained - just like her kids did when they were three.  and she cooks those meals because it is fun for her and relaxing, just like saving money with coupons is for you.  and well, we have friends that can decorate. 

i wish my confident self would remind my un-graceful self that blogs are the pretty picture and the people who know me and are friends with me aren't going anywhere.  that i may not have it all under control but the important things, yeah, i've got those.

grace: characterized by elegance or beauty of from, manner, movement or speech; elegant

  1. Oh your feelings resonate with me, very much so. This is a struggle so many women seem to have, no matter what it is that they are good at. Keep seeking Him to know who you are in Christ and what really matters! Great honest post.
