I had seen the concept of a “Capsule Wardrobe” on Pinterest for years now. It seemed exhausting, hard and impossible. I liked going on my emotional shopping sprees and stockpiling clothes. Would I be able to not buy anything for 3 months?!
Read how I cut my wardrobe in half and found more joy doing so!
Every morning I woke up and went through the motions, floundering from devotional to devotional. Why? Because that’s what good girls do, right? I read my Bible, searching for something that I could practically apply to my life. As the years went on, I grew more frustrated with my walk with the Lord.
I felt like He had left me, which made me even more hurt and sad. I wanted to give up, but I kept trying, hoping I could someone make the Lord not angry at me. Because that must have been why I wasn’t hearing His voice daily.
One day I was scrolling through Instagram and stumbled across a post about something called DGroup. I read about how they have accountability, curriculum, scripture memory and prayer partners. But that seemed to “hardcore” and quite honestly scared me.
I was talking to Bryan the other day that I am such a checklist/pen and paper person. If I don’t have a checklist for my day, I get swept away with Fixer Upper reruns and the massive pile of laundry laying on our bed. (Whoops!)
I held the remote in my hand and scrolled through the new releases on Netflix. It was a lazy Saturday afternoon and I had just woke up from a nap. I shuffled through the mediocre list of movies until I saw the image of a man with a giant afro standing at a canvas.
The night air was cool against my face as I escaped the hotel. Each step took me further away from the loud laughter and the yellow glow of outdoor tiki bar below the hotel. I shoved my hands into the pockets of my coat and widened my stride trying to catch up to my sister and her boyfriend .
The salty air and white sand between my toes. There is no remedy for stress quite like the beach! But one thing that does sometimes bring me stress is packing. I always make checklist after checklist before going off on a trip. But sometimes you just forget things ... So here is my visual list for what to bring for a day at the beach for this months Jump into June series!
