Renewing My Mind

Renewing My Mind

Day 5:

Countdown 118 Days


 My friend was teaching a yoga class this morning and I decided to go. She began the class with a quote or verse to meditate on during the “practice”, and she quoted

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”

During the class my body was challenged, I felt a mental release, and I tried to focus on renewing my thoughts while working out my body. It was a good practice.

             Prior to writing this entry I opened up a book titled,

God’s Wisdom for Business Success,

to a random page, 144 to be exact, and this was the first verse I saw…

 Romans 12:2.

 To me, that is the voice of God being personal to me through His word. I know I need to keep on renewing my thoughts and my purpose and passions will continue to be revealed as He guides me, inspires me leads and directs me.

So, NAMASTE to my teacher for encouraging me to renew my mind!

And THANK you to my 8 year old for picking these wild flowers for me. Such a nice surprise when walking into my house! They made me feel refreshed!

Day 4:

Countdown 117 Days

Deadlines have an invisible power over me.

Even when I’m the one setting them. If I didn’t get this post published by tonight it’s almost as if some invisible force of nature would swoop down and stamp my forehead with GIANT RED LETTERS,



Today was a busy day. It’s wedding weekend for a close family friend and we are all excited to celebrate with them tomorrow.

I’m tired and I’ve deleted far too many paragraphs of unrelated ideas, overshares, and ramblings for one evening!

Meeting my exercise goal for the day was hard- it’s the weekend and part of me just didn’t want to get it done, but I did it anyway, and it felt good.

I also have a pile of canvasses that I gessoed over a few days ago and I’m excited to paint on them this week to add to my Etsy shop!

Amidst my business, writing, and health goals,

Some much needed quiet time was required of my spirit this evening and I found a good book titled

“The Burden is Light” on my shelf.

The first page I opened to was page 28

(I never start at the beginning…I can’t explain it)

Anyway, this page is titled Finding Your True Identity, and explores how I can know who I am in Christ

these were some affirmations-

I am accepted

I am secure 

I am significant.


I’m definitely on a journey.

Where it will lead is uncertain.

Until tomorrow…


I’m still reading the book, but I needed to publish this post before midnight!
