Lorrrrrrrrdy it’s Friday.
In normal life, this would be a sigh of relief. In Jeanette’s current world, it’s packing my life into boxes, figuring out Whole30 approved snacks for a 13 hour road trip, oh, and somehow figuring out how to transition into adult life with the ease and grace you see in the movies. There’s a lot going on, folks. Ask me how I’m doing next Friday.
One. Even moving this weekend is not going to let me get off the Whole30 train. I’m too far in now. Did I mention that I dream about cheating though and then feeling awful about it? Yesterday I cheated with some kind of delicious Oreo truffle. The night before that was pizza. Not sure if dreaming counts as cheating, but we’re rolling with it. In other news, make these plantain fritters with bacon and eggs and your mind and body will thank you.
Two. Special treat on the blog this week from author and great friend Kristin Neva—she shares some profound lessons that she’s learned from pain as well as her newest book, Snow Country. Read the post and drop this book into your Amazon shopping cart—good life choices all around.
Three. Speaking of life choices, if this week has bowled you over entirely, here are some tried-and-true ways to destress that won’t also cause you additional stress the next time you look at your bank statement. Ja feel?
Four. Reading Matthew this morning and God just has a really funny way of showing up, you know? These words were rest for a stressed-out twenty-something soul.
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Five. Want to give a big old thanks to everyone who has been so supportive of my new journey in DC! I’ve definitely struggled with feelings of fear and inadequacy mixed up in all the excitement, but the kind words have found their place in my heart and bolstered my courage. TBL is going to be making some changes to reflect this new life transition, so stay tuned!
Love and peace to you in your life journeys.
