Ever Feel Like You Don't Fit In?

I was talking with a friend the other day about something we are both going through. She went to meet up with some other friends and said she felt like a giraffe among a pack of smaller animals... so I started thinking...


How many times do I feel like I stick out? Like I don't fit in because of what is going on in my life at the moment or some physical characteristic - for me - being overweight - that makes me feel like the odd ball.

When you are in a season like that or have a challenge you are facing (losing weight) its almost like you have to have a long neck to see beyond now into what is coming to remind you that it won't stay this way forever.


So, the next time you feel alone, or like you stand out... look around, there might be someone you can walk alongside who feels the same way. Then, walk together, focused on the future, but working together through the now... being POSITIVE and ENCOURAGING to each other to drink lots of water...
 
Eat your veggies...
 


And no matter what you look like...
Don't take yourself too seriously... because everybody feels the way you do at some point in their life...

Who am I?

My photo
I am a wife and mother of 3. I have been married to my best friend for over 25 years and our children are 12, 11 and 9 years old. I have struggled with infertility, suffered the loss of a baby by miscarriage, and endured multiple career paths. I have experienced a crisis of faith that shook me to the core and lost a dear friend to a tragic death. I have had a personal relationship with Jesus for most of my life. The Bible and my relationship with Christ has been essential to my surviving and even thriving in my circumstances. I hope you will be blessed by joining me in this process of life. I thank you for showing up to read what I have written.
