When It’s Not All Sunshine and Butterflies

Life is not always filled with sunshine and butterflies. Some days are just different. They’re a little rougher. A bit tougher on our soul. And, you know what? That’s okay. Really.

You’re not always going to be perfect. You’re not always going to get it right. The point is that you keep going. Keep trying. Change directions. Take a break. Here are a few links to things I’ve read recently that have inspired me. Maybe you’ll find some inspiration, too.

Ending Something
Sometimes good things come to an end. Brandi Reynolds has been one of my favorite bloggers for the past few years. I’ve read along as she’s explored art, photography, yoga, and life. One of my favorite things about Brandi is she’s never afraid to try something new or change directions if she feels called to do so. This month she has announced she will no longer be blogging. At least for now. It may seem weird that I’m linking you to someone’s final post, but I love it as yet another demonstration of her bravery, her willingness to switch things up: This is me giving up

Parenting
Teenagers. They’re a tough breed. I’ve been studying a little about how to make it through the teenage years and have come across some interesting things, including this article: 11 Mistakes Parents Make With Teen Discipline

Marriage
Marriages, like all establishments, have good days and tough days. Hopefully more good than tough. Ann Voskamp wrote an insightful post about one root message behind our anger: 5 Ways to Fight Through to a Loving Marriage

  1. Wowsie wow, Sherri, what fantastic links! I love that you collected links for those topics so many of us are forever looking to conquer, improve on, or survive (and you know which one that applies to, LOL!) Great stuff! Thanks :-)
