“After my choir teacher told me I was a horrible dancer, I was so discouraged. I had always tried to prove myself by trying to be good at what others excelled at. And I failed every time. I couldn’t shake the thought that my only talent was being a professional benchwarmer. I felt like God had forgotten to give me the right amount of ‘enoughness,’ like He seemed to have given everyone else.
“One day in seminary, my teacher gave a lesson about God’s creations. He showed us mesmerizing photos of outer space. I remember gaping at all the galaxies, stars, and planets that were shown—each one of them unique, mysterious, and beautiful in their own way.
“And that’s when I realized something.
“Out of all the phenomenal and unbelievable creations God made, He took the time to make me. A small, seemingly insignificant, ordinary human, who didn’t realize how extraordinary she actually was. A human uniquely set apart from all others. A human who was given her own, specific plan. A human with boundless potential and a divine destiny.
—Chakell Wardleigh, in “The Right Amount of ‘Enoughness,‘” Sept. 2019 Ensign or Liahona

There are certain days that will always stir something in me, and October 17 is one of them. The day that would have been my wedding day. And I don’t say this because I want pity or sorrow, but rather, because I’m certain I’m not the only one who has loved and lost. For so long, I was angry and bitter. I threw myself into things that numbed the pain, but also destroyed my sense of who I was. I didn’t feel worthy of love. I tortured myself with the fear of letting someone truly know me, because I felt that if they got too close, they would see I wasn’t good enough, and leave. What I failed to see was my worth, rooted in something far greater than my own self-perception. I was reminded that I am Beloved. That I have a Creator who made me and breathed life into me, and said I was more than good. Even if you don’t believe in God or a higher being, you are also beloved. You are worthy of love, and you are GOOD. And nothing can take that away from you. #beloved#goodenough
I have never felt so much power from water as here. 🙌💦🌟The feelings are so hard to describe and there I was standing in a humble admiration and total surrender to the mighty power of nature.
Water has a magical power to purify and cleanse from stagnant energy and charge us with a beautiful and wise energy of Mother Earth. 💛
Я никогда не ощущала такой силы от воды как тут. 💦🙌✨Эти чувства так трудно описать, и я стояла в смиренном восхищении, полностью сдавшись магической силе природы.
Вода обладает волшебной способностью очищать и очищать от застойной энергии и заряжать нас красивой и мудрой энергией Матери-Земли. 💛
When I saw this photo it immediately spoke to me, affirming what I want for my life, it represents so much more than what is pictured. The cowgirl lifestyle I desire, open land in the country possibly Montana, where my grandchildren spend their summers and our family gathers for white Christmas’, the healing power of my horse, the freedom of living my best life, the right cowboy by my side, the physical strength and endurance my body will maintain, financial freedom to live this lifestyle, all of it is possible and I deserve and am worthy of it all. What’s your dream? #horses#cowgirl#cowboy#ranchlife#Montana#christmas#summer#grandchildren#family#health#twf#goodenough

Have you ever wanted to try a new thing ... a hobby, a sport, a different career, or even a new hairstyle but you were afraid to because you might not succeed or might not look good?
Have you ever looked at someone who seemingly has it all and felt “less than” or wondered how on Earth you’d ever reach that level of success?
I think we’ve all been there. It’s unnerving and very humbling to be the newbie, to embrace the awkwardness that comes with learning, to swallow your pride, and tune out negative self-talk. But, YOU HAVE TO DO IT!
When God puts desires in our hearts, it’s for good reason. He knows you are equipped with everything necessary to make it. He’s given each of us gifts to be used in His favor, gifts that may help and encourage others. YOU HAVE TO SHARE THEM!
Everyone is a beginner at some point in their life. Don’t worry about tomorrow. Focus on today. Focus on the baby steps. Each new day holds new challenges and new opportunities for growth. Follow your heart, and don’t let your head constantly talk you out of your dreams.
When have you been a beginner? What’s a dream you have right now?
Not the prettiest, but darn it is so good!! Sheppard’s pie is my favorite. I don’t follow a recipe, but over time I’ve perfected it. It’s onions, carrots, celery, garlic, ground beef, potatoes, ghee, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, tomato purée and beef stock. It take a little while to make so I rarely make it, but it is my favorite!! Since I my older kids have been exceptionally well behaved today I was able to knock it out while the baby slept. (This is my lunch, the actually fish will go in the oven to warm up when my husband’s on his way home). What is your favorite comfort food? #whole30fff#doyourbest#foodfreedom#goodenough#healthymom#paleo#canttheyalwaysbelikethis#momlife#comfortfood
