Five Minute Friday: Grit {but on a Saturday}

Better late than never, right?

Today's word for Five Minute Friday is GRIT.

*  *  *

I want to be that girl.

That girl that has it all together.

How does that happen? Is it something in our brains?  That makes us someone who has it all together...or someone who doesn't.

It might look like I do, but I don't.

Those girls who...

  • are confident
  • don't worry about what everyone else thinks
  • have grit
  • have determination
That is what I want.  How do I find it?   

Do I pray about it?  Do I try new and different things to try and seek it out?  Or do I just wait for it to come to me?  

You would think with the lemons (or limes...nah, maybe onions) life has thrown me, I would have learned this by now.  But, alas, I haven't.  

I don't want this to be a dark place.  A dark post.  I just want to figure out some answers.  I want to find my place in the world (that sure sounds 'cheesy' doesn't it?).  I've now lived in three countries, and that sure isn't helping me find my way. 

I want to be that girl that doesn't worry about posting this post.  That doesn't wonder "what will they think?"  But I am.  And I will wonder. 

And I will keep searching for the answers.  Because I know that HE has a plan for me.  And this is all part of it.

I think everyone is just pretending and trying to make it through. Everyone is plagued with insecurities and fears.

PS Loving the layout!

i agree with jamie up there in the comment above... i think everyone is just trudging through the best they can. even the gals who seem to have it all together. and that is why it is refreshing to hear someone else voice these things. i think you've captured what many, many people feel but don't necessarily have the ways, words or courage to express. i love the quote and the scripture you used... great encouragement! :)
