Be Inspired // #12

QuotesHello friends! I hope you are having a good start to your week. I have been trying to change some things in my life lately and so far I’ve been in a much better place. To start, I’m making going to church a priority. And when I can’t go, I listen to the sermon on my podcast. Podcasts have been changing my life! What I like to do is play either a sermon or inspirational podcast that can motivate me, or teach me something when I’m getting ready in the morning. Also when I have a long drive. I feel like I’m actually getting something accomplished instead of just listening to music. If you already listen to podcasts, let me know what ones you listen to in the comments. I would love to know, since I just started listening to them.

Another thing I have trying to do is focus on living with intention and in the moment. I recently joined a yoga class and it has changed my life. I used to do yoga at home in our bedroom. I’d just play YouTube videos and was completely fine with it. Andrew encouraged me to get out (since I work from home) and join a class. It was great advice, because it gives me motivation and I work way harder. But besides that, just being in these awesome yoga classes have helped me to gain some mental clarity. I feel so refreshed and alive after each class. I am working hard on being still in life. By that I mean, taking time to stop, breath and refocus. We can get so wrapped up in our busy lives that we are living in a whirlwind. Before we know it, weeks and months are flashing before us and it seems life is moving faster with each minute. I’m realizing when you focus on being present, life is much sweeter and richer. Try to appreciate what you are blessed with instead of planning what you need to buy to make you happier. What is around you that makes you smile? Who is in your life that you are blessed with? We have so many things around us that we take for granted and it’s important to stop and see it all. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week and try to live this week with more intention and take a few moments to just be.

    Podcasts are my fave. So my favorite pastor is out of Dallas tx. Check out matt Chandler from the village. He’s absoulty amazing and has a gift of teaching. He’s so black and white and keeps it interesting. I always tell people he’s the dane cook of pastors because he’s funny and keeps it real. You can download the actual village app and listen to their sermons that way or just listen to his specific podcast. I like to do both. Watch him online too so you can see him also to get the full idea. I started Being intentional a little over two years ago thanks to Joanna Gaines from fixer upper from hgtv. I used to read her blogs in the first season before she got super busy and they are amazing. Very inspiring. If you have time to go back and read some of then from 2013. She’s all about being intentional with her time. She loves the Lord so much it’s obvious. Anyway I really enjoy your vlogs and now im starting to read your blogs. I’ve been thinking of blogging myself because I love to write and share my heart with others. Thanks for the inspiration. You’re awesome!
