Do you sometimes feel like your marriage might be taking more effort than it should? Does it feel flawed and faulty and gimping along?
That’s ok! Great marriages take a great amount of work! Step back, rest, renew yourself and return to the privilege of learning from the one who loves you best, the mirror that is helping to reveal your greatest self.
Do you at times think maybe you aren’t cut out for parenting; like everything you learn just feels more and more like you’ll never get it right?
That’s ok! Great parents make loads of mistakes! (How else are we going to learn this job?) Step back, rest, renew yourself and return to learning to love in a way, no other people but your children, could teach you.
Do you wonder if you might never leave a legacy of anything worthwhile; even after a lifetime of effort?
That’s ok! Great people are just human beings like you and me who let light shine through them; who give of themselves in small and simple ways!
Keep stepping back, resting, renewing in times and return to the things that make your heart light; singing, running, writing, cleaning, organizing, researching, painting, acting, gardening, dancing, laughing, and on it goes.
Lest we become overwhelmed and discouraged, we must move through the cycles of life. Learn to give yourself a break, rest, renew and gain new strength for the next leg of the journey.
And while you are cycling through the processes of life, never forget; you are beloved.
The mission of Lioness at the Door is to uplift, strengthen and encourage women of all ages to magnify health, hope and happiness at home. We do so boldly, with humility and gratitude for the opportunity.
P. S. I see so many of you…you are doing it! You are wonderful beyond reason! Keep going, I love cheering you on!
