Anyone who knows me a little better than just a follower of my blog...which that is most of you, or else you wouldn't be following my blog... :) knows that this past week I've taken a step in my life journey that has led me to a new found freedom because of it. I let go of the control over something that wasn't mine to control. I didn't just say it in my head that I let go, because we all know that would be a lie, but I actually took physical steps in letting go and freeing myself to continue embarking on this road God has called me to.
That big step has opened my heart to taking charge of my identity and my health as a woman. I decided that contentment, while it is something to be learned over time, is also something that I can take physical steps towards. Many times in my day to day life I find myself feeling like I am in a rut of somekind. I know I have no reason to be there at the time. I have my health, my friends, my family, my education, and a God-given income of some kind, but I still feel icky and unmotivated. I'm changing that today.
Our contentment is to be found in our Lord. However, it is also my duty to take care of myself and the body I was given to live this life in. IIf I am not keeping it healthy, being lazy, not eating properly, I will not feel motivated and even worse, I will feel discontented for no specific reason...WHICH IS THE WORST FEELING OF ALL TIME!

When you hold your hand as close to your face as possible, it seems HUGE. You might think to yourself "holy crap my hand is HUGE!"...but in reality, is it really? Slow down, back it up, your hand is so small in the grand scheme of things. Focus on things bigger than your hand.

There's something about cajun food that brings people together. Something about LSU football that make people who don't even know each other, relate in ways that non LSU fans will never understand. Pair the two together, and it's community at it's best...They allow for making new friends, bringing back together old friends, and deepening present day friendships even more. I love Louisiana culture!
