30 Days of Truth

I decided to participate in the 30 days of truth.

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.

Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.

Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.

Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.

Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.

Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.

Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.

Day 08 → Someone who made your life miserable or treated you badly.

Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.

Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.

Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.

Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough days. (write a letter.)

Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)

Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.

Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.

Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.

Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?

Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?

Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.

Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.

Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)

Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today

Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?

Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?

Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?

Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.

Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

Something I hate about myself? Hate is such a strong word. There are definitely things I don't like or care for like stretch marks, bills and chores, but even those have their up sides. I think one thing I hate is failure. Failure when it comes to letting God down, failure of not holding up my end in relationships, failure as a mom or as a wife or in endeavors. I know failure is a part of life and there is an opportunity to learn and grow in our failures if we allow ourselves to, but the feeling of missing the mark takes a toll on me. I don't even mean monumental failures, sometimes it's just little ones, like losing my patience or saying something I shouldn't. But my theme this week and always is 'I'm a work in progress'. And I know the Lord is going to grow me, especially in my failures. Ideally, I'd love for the Lord to bestow vasts amounts of wisdom, love, grace and all the other things the good Lord provides, upon me and I was perfect. Unfortunately, that's not gonna happen, but over time I'll be less of a 'failure' and molded more to what the Lord wants me to be.
