my hair.

what’s right for someone isn’t right for everyone.  I mean, my pink hair and double pony tail is sorta a silly example, but it’s the truth.

I was having a conversation with a friend just this month and it totally related to this concept.  it went like this…

friend: oh, you shouldn’t move to that neighborhood, because the school system there isn’t good,

me: oh really?  

later…

friend: I am so sorry I said that to you.  I was thinking about it, and that wasn’t right for our family, but that doesn’t at all mean it isn’t right for yours.  

me: thank you!

y’all!  A- to the MEN!  why do we spend so much time worrying about what people think of our choices?

what’s right for me, maybe isn’t right for you.

and what’s right for me, maybe is crazy to you.

would it make a difference in your relationships if we went into conversations with this mentality? 

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I 100% believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life. I can’t wait to get to know you and your story, and I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my three kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

    I completely agree. It’s just sad that not many people realize or think about that (including myself). Your friend is so courageous to have come back and with humility apologized. Not many would do that. And by the way… I love the pink!

  2. Megan George says:

    I think this is huge! My husband and I were talking about this the other day. The people who act like because our adoption doesn’t make sense because it doesn’t make sense to them really hurt our feelings and the relationships. But our friends who think it’s crazy, but are rooting for us, praying for us, and helping us fundraise anyway have become some of our biggest encouragement.

    YES. I really struggle with this. One of my personality flaws is that I dearly love finding efficient ways to do things – and then suggest that it’s the only or best way to do a thing. In reality, I’m finding what is efficient and best for MY family, not for everyone else’s. Thanks for this perspective and the reminder that I can rejoice in and encourage others’ decisions as they submit to the Lord!
