New Perspectives from Mexico

You know how you always hear that life goes faster the older you get? Well, yea, I'd have to agree! Life has been absolutely flying in my neck of the woods. Let's see what's been happening....spending time with dear friends; a lovely housewarming party in our new home; crazy work schedules; and last but not least, an amazing eight day getaway in Mexico. There is something about having no connectivity to your routine world. I believe that God knows exactly what we need in the timing we need it — He was right, my soul needed time away from the routine life. Mexico was a time of fresh breaths and new perspectives on life. I arrived home last night but am already reflecting on my thankfulness.

While away I spent time soaking in the sun, received a relaxing massage in a beach cabana, ate way too much, spent quality time with my family and read a thought provoking and life changing book, Carry On, Warrior: Thoughts on Life Unarmed. The author, Glennon Doyle Melton, is authentic, hysterical, wise and really hits on life's basics that are sometimes just so hard to grasp or live-out day-to-day. In the end, it is all really simple, we just have to remember:

We belong to each other.
Love wins.
We can do hard things.
Life is brutiful (brutal + beautiful).

Anyway, this book deserves a second or maybe even a third read. But for now, I need to unpack and do my laundry — welcome back to the real world — I'm off to put these new perspectives to use. Happy Sunday all.
