Let love guide

Thanks for all your love yesterday. My first day as a nanny went really well and I am excited to be with the kids tomorrow, so it really must be good.  I was scrolling through some of my favorite quotes for today's post. Aren't powerful quotes just the best thing ever? I honestly love reading something that inspires me.

I am in a world of new. Yes, I have been in Gainesville for almost two months now but it still feels brand new. Every where I go, every one I see, and everything I do is new. Change is hard for me. I am one of those people that enjoys new experiences but I always like to go home at the end of them. After two months of being here, I think I have finally realized I am not going home. Florida is my home.

I know what you are thinking. How does this quote even go along with what I am saying? Well. . with every new thing I am doing it is easy to be discouraged, frustrated, angry, etc. However, if I let this quote seep into my soul... 'most of all let love guide your life' ... it seems to me everything just begins to fall into place. The more people I meet, the more love I strive to give to them. The more things my sweet hubby needs me to do because he is so busy, the more love I strive to give to him. The more unfamiliarity's I face, the more I strive to embrace and love change.  The more I am away from my family, the more I am filled with love and gratitude for all they do for me.

I am not saying it is easy. But. I truly believe if you LET LOVE GUIDE your life it will be so much easier. And. You will be sincerely happy.

Happy Tuesday :)

  2. I am a sucker for quotes that either really pertain to my life or just give me chills. The quote you posted is definitely one of them! Ill be thinking of you as you adjust to the new.

  3. Well said. I definitely know what you are talking about. I feel out of my comfort zone most days here in Paris but I love what I'm doing and I love that is pushes me and challenges me in ways that wouldn't happen back home. Plus you appreciate everything and everyone at home that much more. Your pretty little button is all set up on my blog :) Its a beautiful little addition! Thanks!!

  4. What a beautiful quote. I totally understand that moving to a difficult place can be hard. We moved 2 hours from my home and I'm still adjusting!

  5. Distance does make you realize all those little things that our families have done for us. I definitely appreciate my mom more and more.
