A few weeks ago I got to go home for a bit and be with my family. It was an unexpected trip, but God’s timing is perfect always and it was very refreshing to be home. Every time I go home, I’m reminded of why I’m out here doing what I’m doing, and it always grounds me and sets me back in focus. Sometimes it’s nice to get out of your routine for a second and take a step back and reflect on how far you’ve come, or analyze where you are going and if it’s the right thing.
I’m learning more than ever right now in this season of life to have thick skin. Thick skin does not mean to be rude, or rash, or have zero compassion toward other peoples’ feelings. It means to be bold, and to fight for what you believe is right. If you don’t take control of your life, someone else will.
I’m thankful that home is somewhere I can go and feel loved and supported. Home is heart warming–welcoming–and I cherish it.
