happy monday.



I have an unhealthy obsession with Target. Sometimes I just go in and walk around and then leave, having purchased nothing. But, usually, I buy at least three things. My bank account hates thanks me. 

This quote has resonated with me all weekend, and also (conveniently) ties into my one word for 2013.   Already, freedom has been so freeing. Fear does damage to my soul. Fear limits me. Fear takes away risks and jumping in faith because I don't know what awaits me at the bottom. Today, the Monday after Daylight Savings (ugh), I challenge you to take a leap of faith and kick fear out of the way. God has amazing things waiting for you if you only trust Him. You are free to live your life in a the way that He has called YOU to. Don't live someone else's life. Your life is beautiful. Live it in complete freedom. 

And that bit about Target? Totally random. Who loves Target as much as I do? 
Happy Monday. It is a good day to be alive.

Target is the most amazing store on this entire planet. Crazy. I always find SOMETHING I want to buy. Always. Without fail. I think they put some sort of hypnotizing thing in the red bull eyes. (Not an original thought, totally stole from something on Pinterest, but whateves.)

Love your post! Freedom from fear and anxiety and sadness is one of the most exhilarating things on this planet. Amenamenamen.
