This past fews days we had the opportunity to head to the beach with our friends, Rachael & Matt Gregson! There is just something about the open air, sand, and waves that gets me thinking. No better place to write it down than here, right?
No matter who we are or what stage of life we are in - we all have weaknesses. And I don't mean chocolate or french fries. I am referring to flaws in our minds and hearts.
Every day we go about our lives trying to be a little better, and every day we are challenged to give in to these flaws. After all it's easy to be prideful and harder to be humble. Easy to be selfish and takes effort to serve others. Easy to be envious, and more difficult to have gratitude. But these are the traits that matter!
How easy it is to focus on our flaws though- because we are constantly striving to improve and constantly falling short. No one on this earth is perfect. We all miss the mark on something.
Because of this,
we need to be kind.
Kind to ourselves. Kind to others.
We are all trying in this world and wouldn't it be nice if we all recognized that a little more?
I can not for the life of me ever figure out how to line the pictures up nicely.
Sorry, all you OCD people out there...
