Southern Belle OOTD+ 7 Things

Sunday, April 7, 2019
The changing of seasons from Winter to Spring has always been my favorite time of the year. There's just something about warm sunlight after a long, cold Winter that brings out the happiest moods and the most hopeful feelings.
I also wanted to share 7 things that I have been inspired by lately. I feel like God has been teaching me a lot over the past few months and I wanted to share some of my thoughts.

In case you haven't heard, I recently launched my own online boutique! All the pieces I'm wearing can be purchased through the links below. I would LOVE for you to check them out and tell me what you think! 

1. I think it's important that we are creating more than we are consuming. In today's society, it's so easy to consume information 24/7 on our phones, TV, the internet, social media, etc. I am learning how important it is to just sit and be still. To sit in God's presence, the presence of friends and family, and to be fully aware of your surroundings. To put my phone down and to live REAL life. To be creative in things like painting, reading, writing, music.
2. It's easy to feel bitterness towards people when you feel as if they have wronged you. Or maybe you just hold a grudge against them because of something that happened in the past. Instead of thinking badly of them and letting that consume you, I have learned how important it is to look at them through God's eyes. Realize that they are also God's child and he cares about them just as much as he cares about you. That thought process has helped me overcome arrogance and entitlement, and helped me to see others in a different light.
3. "The presence of anxiety is unavoidable, but the prison of anxiety is optional!" -Proverbs 31 podcast
4. Working out is not only beneficial for your body but for your soul.
5. Cooking more at home has improved my health so much! It's crazy the difference I have seen in my body, skin, and mood just from cutting back on fast food.
6. This has been such a busy season of life with going to school full time and starting up businesses, but I am beyond thankful for the opportunities God has placed in my life.
7. "God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing." - C.S. Lewis
