Press On

It's never lost on me the title that I chose for my blog (or maybe the title chose me!).  Waiting seems to be a constant in my life - and I'm learning to be ok with that.  Because it's in those moments, those uncomfortable times when nothing seems "right", that I look back and realize I learned the most.

So many times during the past few months, I have ached to blog.  To have the time and energy to share what's been going on but it wasn't the smart choice. My tag line was a work in progress - love more, serve more, live more.  And in order to do those things, my blog had to take a backseat for the moment.

And then the doubts started pouring in.  What is my purpose?  What if my good enough isn't good enough?  What if a wrong perception causes someone else to doubt who I truly am?  Self-doubt is a dangerous path.  One that I'm trying desperately to detour from.  Why is it so much easier to believe the negative rather than the positive?

But through the fog of funk, I have been reminded time and time again (and maybe you need to hear it too!) that we were put on this Earth for a reason. Even if we have royally screwed up, God can still use us!  Isn't that awesome?! If we are still breathing, we still have a purpose and that is exactly what I needed to hear. The wait was definitely worth it!

I've got so many things I want to share with you!  Things I've learned (and am still learning!), places we've been, and, YES, finally the house remodel!  

If you are in a season of waiting, hang in there and press on!

It feels so good to be back!  What have you been up to during my little blog break?  I can't wait to re-connect with everyone!


  1. Well I see you got my snapchat message. LOL! Welcome back. I love your blog. I believe you to be true to who you say you are and what you believe in. You are being pulled in so many directions my friend! Enjoy this season of life. I am telling you- it goes by so darn fast! xoxo

  2. Amen, Holly! Press on! It's what we do - no matter what!
    Great word of encouragement today.
    Hope you and your family are doing well~

  3. It's been a whirlwind of a year for you friend. I truly believe you have tons to offer in this space but it should be a blessing to you as well as others and not an added stress. Love you to pieces and always feel so happy when I see you dump your raw feelings here. :)

  4. Retweet what @Shelly said! Love you and so glad you're back!

  5. Thank you this.. I needed this so much. With 2 little ones I can't ever find time and struggle so much..

  6. I'm glad you're back! Sometimes a break is exactly what you need!
