Happy Monday!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  We attended a wedding – which was absolutely lovely – on Friday night and, on Saturday, I joined a small group of family and friends to help my senior friend continue her birthday celebration.  It was a very “social” weekend and very nice.  However, I’m looking forward to this new week and, especially, a fresh Monday to stay home and recharge my introverted self:)
On Friday, I joined a “new to me” link-up…and, truth be told, I almost did not.  The post I wrote was…well, outside of my comfort zone and I felt completely unsure about posting it.  I even considered taking it down.  Not exactly sure why other than I totally overthink the silliest things.  (Other things that probably warrant extra thinking, I don’t give a second thought.)  Anyhoo, the link-up was so enjoyable and I met several new bloggers this weekend.   Note to self (for the 300th time) – get out of that comfort zone every once and a while!!  Have you stepped outside of your comfort zone lately??  I thought it was going to be easier to do in this new decade of life!  Hmmm –
As the new week begins, I thought I would leave you with this quote that I read this week.  It is worth “chewing over” throughout the week ahead.  Have a blessed week friends.  Come back on Wednesday.  I will be doing my monthly “Currently” post which I thought was no longer going to happen – imagine my surprise (and delight!) when I discovered my blogging friend, Jen, was going to continue it!!
“Whatever we have, we have because God, in His grace and generosity, has given it to us.  When we realize this, there comes into our life a joyful gratitude for what we do have, and we are freed from resentment and anxiety over what we do not have.”  Ben Patterson

  1. Yay for getting out of your comfort zone! Funny that you should say that- I wrote a little about that today in my own Monday blog post. Great minds…I think we’ve said that before! I’ll have to go read your post from Friday, I missed it somehow. I’m glad you’ll be doing a currently post! I left the link open the whole month in case anyone wanted to join in later. I’m taking suggestions for prompts for the months to come! 😉 I’m glad you had a nice weekend and that you’re having a quiet day at home to recharge. I feel every bit of that sentiment. I, on the other hand, have a dental cleaning at 9 today..what the heck was I thinking???

    1. No one should go to the dentist first thing in the morning! Hope all goes well, though. The dentist is not my friend – ha!! (poor dentist)

  2. Fellow introvert here so I can relate to anticipating a nice, quiet day at home ;). Your weekend plans sound nice though. I mean, if you’re going to be social, celebrating a lovely wedding and a dear friend’s birthday are among the best ways to be social, I think. I need to work on being more joyfully grateful for what I have rather than focus on what I don’t have but would like. Social media is not the best for this endeavor- I need to pray about it. Thanks for the food for thought on this Monday morning. I hope you have a great day!

    1. Social media is a true joy – and gratitude – drainer!! A truth for all of us to remember – especially as we find ourselves getting sucked into the vortex!:) Here’s to some introvert recharging!:)
