Inspiration for May
I am sick today, which has been a blessing in disguise. I so rarely allow myself to really relax and let up on the demands I make for myself, and doing that today was much needed. It also means I finally have a few minutes to blog, so here is the belated list of the various things I found on the internet that were inspiring last month:
:: A General Conference talk about the Lord's constant presence through joy and trial
:: A powerful column about support during postpartum depression
:: Proof that we're all just doing the best we can.
:: A mother who pursued her dream to be a writer, too
:: Confessions from a fellow introvert. Would you all forgive me if I did this from time to time?
:: The divine gifts of women -- a must read
:: A beautiful film about the divine gifts of women -- and a great analysis, too
:: A meditation on Mother's Day for different women
:: Comparing the difficulties of new motherhood and postpartum depression with baseball (it works, I promise)
:: More excellent advice on how to increase the awesomeness in your life.
:: The grace of letting it go (cue Elsa here)
:: Comparing that unglamorous time of month to the Atonement (again, I promise it works!)
:: Commonalities of motherhood
:: Having faith before everything is made clear
:: How I feel about books.
:: On achievement and reaching for the moon.
:: Defining motherhood based on being rather than doing.
:: What the human soul is thirsting for
:: Don't be perfect -- be good enough.
:: How to love and accept yourself
:: A birth story that shows the blessing and power of personal revelation
:: On dreams, and choosing the right ones
:: A list of all the women in the New Testament. How handy is that?
:: Thoughts on an art exhibit about the Savior.
:: Live for your dream, not the biggest dream
:: Help in carrying our burdens
:: Empowering women to have births that result in a healthy baby and a healthy mother
Whew, there was a lot of goodness out in the internets this month. I hope you found something that added a little inspiration or beauty to your day.
