My Own Worst Critic

I have a tendency of being too hard on myself. I beat myself up over things. I think too hard about some things. I am my own worst critic.

I’m getting so frustrated with myself because I lack any and all creativity.  This bullet journal is not going well for me. I have no artistic bone in my body. I may shelve the bullet journal for a while until I can figure out why I’m actually doing it. Am I trying to do a bullet journal for ME? Or because everyone seems to be doing one and I don’t want to feel left out?

So until I can figure out the answer to that question, no bullet journal for me! πŸ™‚


I haven’t been feeling inspired lately when it comes to my writing. But I’ve taken all of the ideas I’ve been given from my wonderful WordPress family to heart and am going to work hard to write what I know.

I made a joke once: “I know I’m supposed to write what I know but the trouble is I don’t know anything!” LOL, I know that I know things but I don’t feel that I know things worth sharing.

I can’t force the writing. It has to flow.

So what I’m going to do is give it all to God and let Him guide me.

Jeremiah 29:11-13 says,

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, β€œplans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

I just want to thank all of y’all who have been praying for me. I really appreciate it. πŸ™‚

The Motions

Image result for the motions lyrics
I love Matthew West! I haven’t heard a song of his I don’t like.
The Motions is one of my favorites though.
Sometimes we can get caught up in the craziness that is called life and we end up living a life of complacency that we end up forgetting what really matters.
We start to “go through the motions.”
This song is amazing. I encourage you to watch the video as well.
The Motions
This might hurt, it’s not safe
But I know that I’ve gotta make a change
I don’t care if I break,
At least I’ll be feeling something
‘Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life
I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking,
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?
No regrets, not this time
I’m gonna let my heart defeat my mind
Let Your love make me whole
I think I’m finally feeling something
‘Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of this life
Cause I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?
Take me all the way (take me all the way)
Take me all the way (’cause I don’t wanna go through the motions)
Take me all the way (I know I’m finally feeling something real)
Take me all the way
I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking,
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?
I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking,
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?
Take me all the way (take me all the way)
Take me all the way (I don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna go)
Take me all the way (through the motions)
Take me all the way
I don’t wanna go through the motions
