I have been keeping up with the Prov 31 for some years now. Even though I am not over 30 or a mom I still feel like I relate pretty well to them. Even more so now that I am married. I like the ones that relate to Moms. Like this one I read today. I feel like it gives me a little peek into the world of motherhood. & maybe some advice I can save in my journal for the future.(ya know whenever I get off the no baby train)
This post I read was more than just about motherhood. It was about how women in general think that they can do it all! The problem with that is when you try "to be good at all things, you miss the joy of the small things." As women we want to be good at everything! We burn ourselves out sometimes trying to keep up. We fall into the trap of comparison. There is nothing wrong with wanting to learn something new & improve your skills/talents. But don't let it consume you that you have to be a pro at everything.
Whatever your talent & gifts are use them. Be proud of them. Enjoy them. Don't compare & get down on yourself, wishing you could do like someone else. The world needs writers, bakers, singers, encouragers etc. We all have our place somewhere in this world. & using our gifts for the better makes the world a little brighter.
