Feeling like a claratin actress.

Last week's wishes...
1Organize my photos on my hard drive. Purge what needs to be deleted and organize the rest.
2 Make time for a creative photo shoot.
3‣ Catch up on magazines - all of them.

Oh Ladies,

When Monday comes around I am so delighted to get on my blog + see all the recent weekly wishes posts spamming up my bloglovin. Can I just say how truly inspired and humbled I am to be a part of the little community I have here surrounding me? Because I am.

If you guys are anything like me, when Monday comes I begin to plan my upcoming week. This week while brainstorming, I was met with more dread than anticipation. And as I mentally recapped my weekend, I found I had been living in an unhappy blur. It was like I was unknowingly dragged into a Claritin commercial - and all the color had been sucked right out of my world. I ate very little, did very little and smiled even less. In a nutshell, I just felt as though my joy had been stolen from me.

Without getting preachy on you - so early in the week, I just wanted to share what was laid on my heart this morning as I was wrestling with my poor attitude.

"Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8

He wants your joy. He wants your dreams. He wants your inspirations. 
Anything you can use to glorify God, he desires to steal from you. Be alert. Protect your heart.

So this week, I intend to be very intentional with correcting my attitude. I plan to re-light my fire - to remember my passions and my goals for this blog + for my life. My emotions don't have to dictate my behaviors.  But I will do what is right until I feel like doing it again.

Therefore, this week's wishes...
1‣ Spend at least three hours in a comfy coffee shop.
2 Read Martha Stewart, Dwell, Country Living + other inspiration sparking magazines.
3‣ Take some time to think, pray and journal about anything that's on my heart.
