In Case You Were Wondering

Lately I've been keeping busy, trying to stay as busy as possible. Most of the things on my agenda have been wonderful, a few are the "have to-do's". I've spent far too much money in the last few weeks, all items have been completely necessary... ok, the big items have been completely necessary, the small items were bought "because I felt like it", and I'm ok with that.
Lately I've been learning a lot about faith, hope, and being ok with not seeing the next step in life... but I still have a long way to go. I have battled with myself over what to do next and decided that just dealing with "what I know right now" is my best option.
I will be taking a trip up north this weekend and I couldn't be more excited. I am attending an opera, working on projects, and reminding myself how to be ok with just being me.
dress- h&m
cardigan- american eagle
tights- lands end c/o coupons.com
shoes- nordstrom
jewelry- color by amber
watch- nordstrom

And in my heart, I still know what I knew and feel what I felt, and I will hold onto hope that things will work out exactly how they're supposed to- whatever that means.

Everything WILL work out how it's supposed to. Sometimes you just have to let go and let it happen (as hard as it is). I love you! You're so beautiful and talented and inspiring :) Just take one step at a time.

Things will work out for the best! You are so strong, Gentri! <3 you girl. Hope you have a blast this weekend!

Also, your outfit is just adorable. Perfect for fall!! Who takes all your pictures?? They look AMAZING! I want my pics to look like yours!

It's so hard when you think God wants you to do something, but you can't figure out how to get there or what exactly it is even supposed to be. I have totally been there before! Sending lots of love your way.

I hear where you're coming from. Lately my life has been a blur of 30-40 hr work weeks and full time school and trying to sleep and be a human at the same time. The most rewarding thing I've done for myself this season is ask for Sundays off. I fought for them and caved for weeks and went to work, but after a while it comes down to what and who's important in my life. I wanted to go to church so I fought for it, and my boss said yes. I still get confused and burdened but every little step in the right direction is still a step! I have to remember who I am and what I'm here for. God knows what He's doing even when we don't. I hope you have a lovely time up north and seeing an opera is so exciting! Have fun, relax, and eat delicious food

It's so hard to let go and let Heavenly Father take over. Keep on keeping on, cute girl.

I find such comfort in always knowing things turn out how they're supposed to! The hard patches are there to make us stronger.

You will make it through! I believe in you!
I am such a sucker for claiming I need things. I buy myself "needs" all the time. Sometimes you just need a little retail therapy;)

Emma Frances said...

I'm sure you'll figure it out! :] But in the meantime I'll be praying for you because the more prayers the better, right? Also, I adore this outfit!! It's just perfect for fall! Have fun up north!!

Are you going to see Deep Love? If so ...jealous! And I totally hear ya on the just "letting go" since we don't always know how things will pan out. Can't we just know how things will pan out?! Ha, it seems like something I have to re-learn over and over

Gentri, you have the most radiant smile!
Thank you for sharing in this post what's on your heart. I think many people go through similar seasons, and it's so helpful to know you're not alone!
You're a gem :)
