I forgot the sparkles

April 14, 2016 § Leave a comment

Not too long ago I wrote a post about how I was dealing with my infertility. Days after that post I unexpectedly lost my grandfather and I started back down the road of depression. 

My anxiety attacks have been flaring up like crazy. My jealousy has been warring against me. My longing to be a mother has deepened. 

In the midst of all this, I forgot about my favorite thing: sparkles. 

You will most often see me wearing some form of sparkles. It’s honestly my favorite accessory. I’ll take sparkle in most any form. I also prefer the sparkles to be pink. Clrearly, I’m very girly even at nearly 27 years old. 

How could I forget the sparkles? 

I forgot the sparkles because I allowed circumstances to take over for too long. Like most people, I get caught up in life and allow myself to be overwhelmed. I forget about the things that make me happy to be alive. I forget about what’s good in the moment I’m living. Sparkles help me to remember that there is good around me. 

God uniquely created me to love sparkles as much as I do. I think it’s another way He shows me that I matter because so many things sparkle. For instance, if you catch the light in someone’s eyes at just the right moment, it looks like they have twinkle eyes. Who doesn’t love that? 

It’s a daily struggle ya’ll to not give into the depression. My anxiety attacks don’t just go away.

For whatever reason, God gave me sparkles as a passion. It keeps me sane and fills my heart with gladness to find sparkles wherever I go. 

As go through your day, search for the sparkles in your life. I’m hopeful you’ll find it.
