inspiration : thursday thoughtfuls

Hi ya'll! Happy Thursday! :) 

I'm gearing up for another busy weekend. I'm hoping that tonight we can go to our old house and finish up most everything. I'm ready for that place to get on the market and sale, sale, SALE! Haha, but really, my heart is here now, I'm tired of thinking about things that need to be done at the old place and instead be able to focus on the things I want to do to this new place. 

Tomorrow, I have work, then the football game, then the post-game meal. Saturday I am getting up INCREDIBLY early to leave around 6:45 AM (AM... did you see that? I am leaving Saturday morning at 6:45 AM!! I didn't even know Saturday mornings had a 6:45!!) to go with a group of ladies to a Beth Moore conference thingy in Lubbock. So see, even though it's WAY too early to be up on a Saturday morning, it will be completely worth it to spend some time with some wonderful ladies and to hear Beth Moore. I've never read any Beth Moore books or heard any of her stuff, but I have heard that she's amazing, so I'm looking forward to that. 

Sunday is church of course, and sometime this weekend I'm hoping to meet up with my friend Sharilyn for some girl-time. :) I hope that works out! 

Okay, enough of my ramblings... let's get on with the show... post. (That doesn't sound quite as exciting does it? haha.

This is so true. I hope that I can be a spark to people. Sometimes, we get so consumed by our lives and our wants & needs, that we forget to do the little things for others.

I've really tried to stop comparing my lives with others. It definitely robs me of the joy I have for my own life when I think I'm better than others or when I think I'm worse off than others. I'm just fine the way I am, there's no need to compare.

 Oh I love this! I'm a super compassionate person, almost to a fault. Almost to a fault in the sense that there have been times where I let people walk over me, take advantage of me and use me because I was overly compassionate and wanted to help them. I felt bad for them, and then they left me feeling worse. I've learned many lessons about that and don't fall into that trap as much. But I do know that the heart of my compassion comes from the things I've been through myself. So these words definitely speak truth to me.

I do tend to forget that. I'm learning to be more appreciative of the things I do have, and less worried about the things I don't have.

Oh. my. word. This is awesome. I want every woman to read it. 

Okay, that wraps up this week's thursday thoughtfuls. What fun things are you doing this weekend?
