Cozy Sweater + Tuesday Thoughts




Something I have been learning lately is that everything we are seeking to find in the world - isn't really all it's made out to be. I spend so much of my time seeking articles, podcasts, books, and videos on different topics about life because I think those things will make me smarter and help me figure out life. But in the end, I'm more lonely and confused than ever. 
I think we just overcomplicate things. We feed our minds with so much information that doesn't need to be there.  Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love podcasts, books, and videos. But, I think a lot of the people (not all) making them just have selfish ambitions. Selfish ambitions to be heard, seen, valued. So they can go viral, make money, ect. And we are buying into it and following their ways - myself included. 
There are days when I ask myself, "why do I even make blog content?" And most days I will quickly reply with "It's what I love to do." and "I want to help people." But when I really dig deep down, part of me has that selfish ambition that I feel the world is teaching us to strive for. 

So what's the solution? That's something I'm still trying to figure out. I never claimed to have any of the answers. But here's something I'm starting to realize: 

I don't want to fall into the trap of selfish ambition. In ministry, my job, my blog, my relationships, or my appearance. 
I don't want to talk about God or be a Christian because people are watching, but to worship Him.
I don't want to blog to show people how "great" my life is and to make money, but to genuinely help people. 
I don't always want to always be "right".
I don't want to workout to show off my body, but to be healthy. 
I want to have the right ambitions behind the things I do. Godly ambitions. 

I'm growing tired of the self seeking and materialistic world that we are living in. 
I want to see a change, and it starts with me.





All of that aside, I wanted to share a super cozy sweater I am obsessed with at the moment. This one was kindly sent to me by Meagan's Unique Boutique and I love it. It's so warm and this material is so trendy at the moment.
Meagan's boutique honestly has some of the cutest sweaters and basics and I highly recommend checking our her website!
