Running my own web design business, I would be lying if I said I didn’t make mistakes, or that I don't run into issues sometimes when building sites. Being my own boss and my best (uhh, my ONLY) employee, I have no one to go to for help. No one to seek out when I break a site, or can’t figure something out, or when I just need a second set of eyes. I have clients, businesses, people, relying on me -- paying me -- to build and maintain professional websites. So when something goes wrong, or a I make a mistake, I pride myself in finding a way, and troubleshooting until I figure it out. I never give up, but I learn. I learn from each hiccup, each hurdle, and I seek out the information I need to fix it. I troubleshoot and post on forums and do the research to solve and fix the issues I encounter. Through this process, I learn SO MUCH. I am the best web designer I have ever been, and I owe that a lot to my mistakes. #try#learn#makemistakes
Faça como essa semente: cresça onde disseram q não era possível, faça o improvável e floresça na adversidade!
Não questione a vontade de Deus, cumpra o que lhe foi reservado!
Essa plantinha pode levar muitos anos até frutificar. Mesmo assim ela não se importa, simplesmente ela se deixou plantar no alto desse poste, ela brotou e está se tornando aquilo que ela deve ser e como essa semente nós devemos continuar acreditando, até nos tornarmos aquilo que Deus planejou para nós!
let US run 🏃🏽♀️
with perseverance the 💗
race marked out for US 💫
it's kinda weird - there are days I LIKE sprinting up a hill...that feeling of "I can do this" is really awesome...but then there are those days I fear the climb up the hill "what if I can't accomplish my goal?!" "what if I suck"....that's when I need to pause and realize that I cannot let my doubts overcome me! perseverance is hanging on even when it's tough. letting doubts and fears guide my decisions will just make what i'm facing even harder. depending on my circumstances, the hill might be too much today - but i'd rather find out by trying than by defeating myself before i even start. and even if i fail, trying and not succeeding isn't a time to start criticizing myself again! i know i would encourage and show grace to someone else who tried hard and didn't accomplish what they wanted to.. now why wouldn't I do that for myself?
Don't give up. You're not alone. Be kind.
A Palavra de Deus define a sua vida e traz-lhe uma direção, convicção, certeza e orientação. Estou certa de que não ficará da mesma forma! #Creia#Confie#Persevere 🦋

...and then keep going. #persevere
When we moved to Cleveland I made the insanely hard decision to leave a job that I loved. I’m so stupidly happy to say that for the first time since moving here, I started my week by going to work. It’s been a very long, very enlightening roller coaster of a road, but that feeling I got this morning — embracing a new beginning that I’m so proud of — was worth each and every bump along the way. And, I honestly just can’t wait to go back tomorrow. ☺️ Also, all the thanks to my favorite person @theunclemoose for being the most amazing support system through it all; always reminding me that settling was not an option and to keep fighting for the right opportunity. 💛

Even though today’s gym session was cut short, I am very amazed with how far I have come on my fitness journey. When I first started lifting my lower back was all screwed up from cheerleading and my form and posture were all sorts of wack. God has seriously blessed my body and has helped it overcome some pretty major obstacles. I am very happy with where I am at today when it comes to my physical strength. 💪🏼🎧
For most of my childhood, I lived very close to a not-so-busy railway line and walked on the tracks almost every day, while my dad looked for rocks he could collect for his science class. Looking back, I think as a kid I was pretty much skilled in walking and perhaps balancing a short distance on the narrow train track. It was a simple trick I mastered so well. I kept my eyes fixed on the narrow line, because I knew the moment I wander to the left or right and lost my concentration, the next step would be a painful slip. After taking a few steps for some time, keeping my equilibrium became natural. The trick about walking and balancing on a narrow metal rail is an example of how we should walk with the Lord. God demands 100 percent concentration from us if we want to walk with Him.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could put all our problems, our pain, our trials and hardships in a microwave? All we would need to do is set the timer (obviously for as little a time as possible), and just wait until we hear that sound that tells us it's finished. We would not have to wait long. There would be no need to be patient, or to persevere, or to trust God. Everything would just happen quickly. Sounds great, but truth is, we all have to go through a process. And a lot of times, the process is not a quick one. And in these times we all have a choice to make; we can choose to rely on God's grace, or walk in frustration and anger. We need to realize that there is PURPOSE in the process and in the end, it will all work out for our good. #iBelieve#persevere#dontlosehope#trustHim#dontloseheart#bepatient#allthings#worktogether#forourgood#Heis#intentional#thereis#purpose#inthe#pain#Hewill#neverleave#Hisword#isenough
Defeated. When I couldn’t complete this obstacle today I felt completely defeated. That final fall unleashed all of the frustration I have felt gradually building up over the past I don’t know how many days. Where the frustration stems from is not important right now... but how I handled myself after this is.
I was livid. I knew I was capable to get up, over, and down on those ladders. I saw it in my head. I believed I had the strength. I was feeling good. But then I fell. I couldn’t do it. I wanted to go again; I wanted to prove that fall wrong; and I wanted to prove my strength to myself. But for the sake of my hands and not risking tearing them, I had to walk away.
It took my sweet husband’s words on the walk to the car to remind me I had indeed done an hour and a half workout just before that climb... 25 pull-ups, 60 front squats, 60 deadlifts, and 3 rounds of a circuit consisting of push-ups, GHD sit-ups, jump rope, box step-ups, and plank holds. My body had already put in hard work before this. And yet when I fell I only heard “you’re weak,” “you can do better,” “you should have been able to finish that,” and all sorts of things that tore me down. My inability to have grace with myself for “failing” hurt.
I do know I can do better than this climb because I know my potential and my capabilities. But I won’t allow myself to believe that today’s fall was a fail... maybe it was in fact meant to happen so that I could continue learning the very important lesson about being gracious with myself. .
I know I am not weak. I know I am actually hella strong. And I will continue getting stronger everyday. The next time I climb that ladder you bet your booty I will give another 110% effort and if I make it across, gold star for me. But if I don’t, I will continue to learn to give myself grace and practice perseverance. When I fall, I refuse to stay down. I will rise and climb again.
Grace & persevere friends💙
As vezes passamos por várias dificuldades e esquecemos que atrás de cada luta existe um propósito do Pai. Sei que é difícil entender a vontade de Deus, entender os planos dEle para a nossa vida, mas aprendi que quando entregamos TUDO, quando confiamos MESMO e quando descansamos PLENAMENTE, a paz, a calma, a esperança vêm de uma maneira, que nos faz entender, que o melhor está por vim.
Não sei porque Deus me ama. Não sei porque Ele cuida de mim. Sou tão pecadora, falha. Muitas vezes duvido daquilo que Ele fala. Muitas vezes o questiono. Muitas vezes penso em desistir, penso em fazer o que eu quero. Mas, mesmo com todas as minhas limitações, Ele não deixa de estar comigo. Não deixa de me ensinar a ser uma pessoa melhor, a ser uma pessoa segundo o coração dEle, a ser uma serva, a ser uma luz em meio à escuridão. Me ensina a ver a solução dos problemas, me ensina a ter calma em momentos difíceis. Me ensina a amar mais o próximo e o mais importante, me ensina a ser grata pela vida!

O verdadeiro propósito de um objetivo é aquilo em que ele o transforma, enquanto você o busca. A maior recompensa é em quem você se transforma.
Há uma diferença gigantesca entre alcançar algo para ser feliz e alcançar algo com felicidade. Em vez de medir o valor de sua vida pelo progresso na direção de um único objetivo, lembre-se de que a direção que você tomou é mais importante do que os resultados temporários. - Filipenses 3:12-14
