Hello Beautiful Souls :) Hope you're doing well. Just wanted to share some inspiration while we tackle more days, weeks, and months ahead, that way you have something to fall back on when you need a reminder.
Life is a complex tapestry of experiences, filled with ups and downs, joys, and sorrows. Sometimes, it feels like the world is testing us beyond our limits, pushing us to the brink of despair. In these moments, it's crucial to remember that it's okay to have a hard time, to suffer, to express your vulnerability.
It's also essential to remind yourself that amidst the trials, you possess the strength to endure and thrive. Each of us matters, and your struggles are real. This blog post aims to inspire you to harness your skills, desires, knowledge, passions, and talents to better understand yourself and others, to find the good in all circumstances, and to keep moving forward.
Being vulnerable is not a sign of weakness. It takes courage to admit your struggles and seek support from others. Remember, it's okay to shed tears, to share your fears, and to ask for help. Vulnerability consists of empathy and compassion, not only for others but also for yourself.
Find the Good in All Circumstances. Life's challenges can be daunting, but within every hardship lies an opportunity for growth and transformation. Instead of dwelling on what's going wrong, focus on what you can learn from your experiences. Adversity often brings out the best in people, teaching resilience, patience, and gratitude. Keep in mind that even the most challenging circumstances can lead to personal breakthroughs and positive change.
Discover Your Talents and Passions. Your unique talents and passions are powerful tools for self-discovery and personal development. Take the time to explore your interests and hobbies. What activities light up your soul? What could you spend hours doing without getting tired or bored? Your passions and talents are integral to understanding who you are at your core. They offer a pathway to self-fulfillment and purpose.
Sharing your expertise and experiences can create meaningful connections and build a sense of belonging. When you use your skills and knowledge to help others, you not only make a positive impact on their lives but also gain a deeper understanding of your own capabilities and potential.
Remember: You Matter. Your existence has an impact on the world around you, and your unique perspective contributes to the diversity of human experiences. Your struggles, your triumphs, your journey—it all matters. Don't underestimate the value of your presence in this world.
Always remember to keep going. No matter how hard it gets. You can experience hurt and all other emotions and matters, but you must keep going to know that there is something better in the end.
Life is a marathon, not a sprint. It's important to acknowledge that there will be setbacks along the way, but these setbacks do not define your journey. What matters most is your determination to keep going. Perseverance in the face of adversity is a testament to your strength and resilience. When you keep moving forward, you not only overcome obstacles but also create a life that reflects your true potential.
Know that YOU MATTER. EACH OF US AROUND THE WORLD MATTERS.
Focus on the day~ Find yourself :)
Keep shining ~ Be Inspired ~

Hey Beautiful souls :) Tarl and I are moved into our new place this weekend. We're so very thankful to each and every one of you for your love, prayers, support, help, meals, etc.
We celebrated our 3-year wedding anniversary this month * Eternity to go ;) and so excited, feel like newlyweds again. Starting from scratch to get all the things for our home. EXCITING. Utah is amazing and always had a place in my heart. We're in Southern Utah and even though it's hot, it's a dry heat from all the deserts but all the mountains and beautiful scenery that circles around us is INCREDIBLE. We're so blessed and loved.
We love the people here too. Our church family, our own family and friends, and neighbors, etc... I personally have never found a better place for my health, and life than here. Tarl and I are so incredibly happy and blessed.
As we get settled in I will post when I can, As you know Tarl works from home and is very busy with work and his creative projects and books. I am doing my last 2 semesters online for my Family Science degree and working with all my specialists for my health. Along with working on the Jackie Inspires Blog and Shop.. Which has been an amazing dream of mine * Those who are new can catch up with all our blog posts from the beginning.
So, It's going to be busy especially since we just moved in but you know it's such a BEAUTIFUL BLESSING. Each day has its own trials and challenges but always looking at the blessings in all circumstances. Yes, it's stressful and my body lets me know to hahha but I am so blessed to have the energy I have now and keeping food down and so much more.
Tarl and I are so strong in our testimonies of Christ. We were just talking about how angels carried us 1400 miles in 4 days during the middle of May 2023 when I was very sick and had to stop school. We're near family and friends. We have been given so many blessings and know that it is because of our faith in our savior Jesus Christ. That no matter how hard the trials may be from financial, spiritual, emotional or physical, HE LIVES> Angels on both sides of the veil surround each of us and blesses us.
Why we love blessing others in any way we can. No matter how we struggle we can always bless someone else in so many different ways. I am truly truly happy. We love this stage of our life and starting fresh with picking out dishes to furniture etc. We know that everything will come together, just as our love did 3 years ago. Just as jobs, health, finances, life, growth in our savior and so much more.
Enjoy this week. Enjoy each day. Brighten someone's day even if you're having such a bad day. Don't give up hope. Learn and grow and build your talents and passions because that is what can help you build strength to overcome. GOD IS GOOD.
Happy Move-In Weekend to us <3 God bless you all. It will be a busy time but life still goes on and we're so happy for all the memories being made.
Lots of love. Talk soon :) Remember YOU'RE ENOUGH. YOU'RE CAPABLE. YOU MATTER. BE VULNERABLE. LET YOURSELF FEEL. PRAY. CRY. ASK FOR HELP. YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH HARDER. DON'T OVERLOOK YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH MATTERS. LEARN TO LIVE AND SEE THE BLESSINGS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.
I promise you that all things will come together but it's in GOD's TIME. He knows your heart. Please believe and don't give up. Surround yourself with those that support and love you.
Keep shining ~ Be Inspired ~
