Hello Beautiful People
Two thousand and sixteen. A blank slate. An empty page. A canvas that screams for colour, mess, beauty, tears, laughs, magic and joy. This year has endless opportunities and I’m practically bursting at the seams with an intense urge to grab the closest paintbrush to me and get started on my newest masterpiece to add to my collection.
This will be my sixteenth addition to my repertoire and I have a sneaky suspicion it’s going to be the best one yet.
Let’s Finally Blog
I don’t want this year to be perfect, quite the opposite actually. I want a beautiful mess, a muddled up rubik ‘s cube, a messy, chaotic, bedroom, an old purse filled with old coins, a chess board with black and white scattered all over the place.
I want mess.
I want to be able to look back at the year two thousand and sixteen and smile. I want to be able to walk through my gallery one day when I’m eighty seven and be able to say to myself ‘Wow, what a whirlwind of a time.’
I want mess for the simple fact that cleanliness and straightforwardness is boring, dull and lifeless.
Quite often I find that I remember the times that didn’t go quite according to plan better than the times that did. For example, I remember going on road trips with my family and getting hopelessly lost; but brushing off the feeling of worry by blasting music as loud as the car speakers would allow. I remember things like that far better than the times we found our destination without one single trip up.
There’s a chaotic, unspoken and beauty behind mess and that’s what I want my two thousand and sixteen to solely consist of.
I urge you all to embrace messy this year, to not fret about things not quite falling into place as you would’ve preferred them to. I urge you to trust in God wholly as we press into yet another year. God’s plan is far larger and far greater than what any of us could even begin to fathom.
We simply hold one puzzle piece while God has the full three hundred piece puzzle laid out perfectly in front of us.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Be blessed this two thousand and sixteen, embrace messy every single moment of every single day, because one day, when you look back at your life, you won’t remember perfection, you’ll remember the messy, and that’s exactly how it should be.
