Happy Wednesday, beautiful people! I am currently reading Rising Strong by Brené Brown, which so far is an amazing read and I recommend it for anyone with an inkling of curiosity, as to how to turn your beast mode on after suffering a great, big fall.

Rising Strong quote

Being in a time in my life where I think I need to hustle, hustle, hustle and get neck deep in my work, this line, "Grace can take you places hustling can't", just spoke to my soul.

Hard work is important. So is prioritization and dedication and determination. But not so much that I should forget that it's by God's grace that I can even work, learn and create the things that I love.

Brent Brown quote

(Pen used: Faber-Castel PITT Artist Brush Pens)

I'm not sure if this was her intended meaning of the quote but it's how my brain interpreted it and it hit home for me! So, thank you Mrs. Brown for the perfect reminder, that I shouldn't try to do everything in my power, but in His.


For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.

Philippians 2:13 (AMP)
