Oh, yesterday...

Now that may be a little dramatic but, yesterday was one of those days. Just an all around bad day. I think I cried around oh say 50% of the day. About 8% of the tears came due to the tenderness in the last 15 minutes of watching Voyage of the Dawn Treader at the dollar theater, by myself, in the middle of the afternoon. But, a majority of the crying was out of frustration, anxiety, and self pity. Also known as, lack of trusting God, feeling like my life is completely out of my control (which it is), and believing the lie that my value comes in my life performance.
This morning I was searching Pinterest and came across some pretty little performance driven lies that I typically unintentionally let myself believe...
I would prefer to live my life by these beautiful truths (also found on Pinterest)...

ERIN! we need to hang out soon so I can

1) finally give you your adorable sweater back and
2) remind you of how incredibly awesome you, the incredible opportunities God has laid in front of you to look forward to, and how I utterly and completely adore you and am in admiration of you and your walk.

May I use some of the information from this blog post right above if I provide a link back to this website?

Thanks,

Erinn, you are awesome and beautiful!! Did you go to the dollar movie theatre in Plano? If yes, call me next time and I will come out and watch the movie with you if I"m at home. I live right behind the theatre. I'll email you my number in a bit. I cried during the last part of the movie too.
