Happy Monday, all 🙂 – Wait. I can do so much better than that. – HAPPY MONDAY, ALL!!!!!! 🙂
If you were expecting a big ol’ recap (I say “ol” because of all my southern influences the past few days – love them) of my amazing time at The Influence Conference, I’m afraid you might be disappointed today! My experience will most likely be shared in this space over the next few months and in multiple posts. I am still processing everything and have no idea how to even start to attempt to take what’s swirling around in my head and my heart and put it into actual words… wow.I can tell you this though, it was exactly what I needed, when I didn’t even know I needed it. I went into the weekend thinking it would teach me how to be a better blogger, when in reality it taught and reminded me how to be a better person for Jesus and in turn, that makes me a better blogger, writer, wife, friend, daughter, sister… everything. And I’m so excited. I feel so rejuvenated, strengthened. I feel inspired, and I’m excited for the new adventures of this space. I’m excited for this day, today. I’m excited to breathe in the fresh air of a new day and to see and learn all of the things He has planned for me to see and learn today.
I’m excited that you’re here with me, choosing gratefulness. It’s way more fun to be grateful with other people, and because of that- I challenge you to ask one person today what they’re grateful for. (And I’m talking about a real live person in your real live life… no one in blogland) (Although we are real and living, I know, but please just go with me here.)
I am grateful for so much today: for this past weekend, for The Influence Conference and for all of the women who so lovingly and with brave spirits shared their stories that truly had such a deep impact on my life. I am grateful for new friends made, and for a clear mind and strengthened spirit. My heart is bursting with thankfulness that I belong to a God who loves me and chooses me every millisecond of every day… just as He did yesterday, just as He does today, and just as it is true that He’ll love me no less tomorrow and the day after that, until the very end of time. And the same is true for you 🙂
