I don't usually use my blog as a place to express my sadness, but I woke up today and did not want to get out of bed. I was feeling down, feeling downtrodden, feeling like curling under the covers and staying there all day. I am normally a quick waker upper (my own word:)). Ready to take on what life brings. Today, as I saw the sun peeking through the window and my husband sleeping sweetly next to me. I shuffled to get away from the sun, when my husband put his hand in mine and said a soft heart touching, " I am so proud of you." 
My cranky heart melted away. As much as I wanted to keep my grumpy pants on. I could not. My husband is amazing, so thoughtful, and those words were just what I needed to hear. 

I hope you hear what you need, to keep you going, keep you inspired, keep you true to you. 
It is a long journey to find what it is we are looking for in life. Validation being one of those components, but sometimes if you stop searching and just be. A calm brings direction, brings truth, and brings out inspiration in everyday moments. 
As the day progressed and work subsided. I was looking through some pics and this one stuck with me. 
Free, is the word that comes to mind when I see this photo. 
If no one has told you lately, "I am proud of all you do! All of your hard work. For you just being you!"
Then let me say it from the sincerest part of my heart. 
Happy Wednesday!
