Some kind of wonderful…..realising how wonderful I am (and YOU) are!
*welcome to a new installment of ‘pillow talks’ where once a month I catch you all up on what has been happening and share what I may have learnt that month. Through this I hope to help make sense of events that happen in life and encourage others (you!) as well. Think of it like friends sharing the goings on of life and finding support with each other!*

October is, in my opinion, the best month! For a couple of reasons: 1) it is my birthday month and 2) normally the weather is well into Spring mode which means more outdoor time!
However, the month has been a little erratic weather-wise so I haven’t quite packed away my jumpers and boots just yet. Though that is more than fine by me! I do so love a cozy afternoon spent inside al wrapped up in a sweater when its cold and/or raining.
Enough of that though. In today’s Pillow Talk and recap of the month I wanted to share another lesson I am/have been/still am learning. About realising that I am some kind of wonderful. And so are you.
I’m often plagued by self-doubt, fear of not being good enough, thinking I’m a weirdo, hating the way I look, the way I can’t do simple things sometimes, etc. I could go on. But I won’t because WHY am I thinking and saying these things to myself?! It’s not going to help the situation with negative self-talk. And it’s certainly not going to help if I’m putting all my energy into unnecessary worry. For example – obsessing over my clothing size (doesn’t matter), worrying about the future (it’s already under control). What will this worrying achieve? Nothing.
I am God’s and how I am is fine. Sure, there are lessons I’m going to learn to improve my character. But that’s internal and a journey taken to come closer to God. The outward things I’m worried about and obsessing over – they don’t mean much to God because He’s looking at my heart. So why not:
- accept you’re wonderfulness (totally a word!) and let go of the little outward things that are easy to get caught up in and realise that:
– you’re fine and enough
– YOU = wonderful
– eating is OK
– life is OK
– you are OK
Wonderful! You are some kind of wonderful. Because God made you and loves you and no matter what you look like, what size you are, how weird you think you are, God is looking at your heart and seeing a wonderful person that He created and loves.
Let’s own being some kind of wonderful, hey?!

Thank you for stopping by friends. If you’ve still stuck around that is! It has been a little while between posts. I’m in a phase where things are a little more difficult for me at the moment (more about why that is here). So that’s a thing and eventually all will be alright again and I’ll get on with it.
Until next time lovelies!
