 Sometimes Life  Makes No Sense + A Few Weekend Bits And Favorites.

Oh hello, Y'all I hope your weekend is going super. Yes, I have been working, and I have some new stuff coming. But, let's chat a bit about life and why it makes no sense sometimes.
Oh, and I have a few weekend bits and favorites that I have been holding out from you all, but I guess today I will share a couple of them.
First off, I love Fig Newtons at the moment. As a kid, I hated them because mama gave them to me so much, I pooped all the time. ( I know Too Much Information)  So, as a kid, I was scared and associated eating figs with running to the bathroom all the time. (lol)
But, recently I started eating the strawberry ones, and I have fallen deeply in love with them, besides they pair well with a cup of hot tea.
Do you eat figs? What is your favorite?

No, seriously life doesn't have to make sense to find your peace of joy in everyday living. I have been keeping a journal that helps me outline my life and my purpose in this space.
 Another weekend bit I love at the moment is finding a reason to smile every day. No, seriously life doesn't have to make sense to find your peace of joy in everyday living. I have been keeping a journal that helps me outline my life and my purpose in this space. I realized I needed to eliminate a few things that didn't line up with my goal. I cried because at the moment I didn't understand. But when I cleared my plate, it felt absolutely amazing. 
I will share so much more at a later time, soon!
On Sunday service, our Pastor preached about knowing your passion and mission. If you deter off, get back on it so there will no wasted time.
Remember the race is not giving to the swift, it is giving to everyone but only those who stay on course.

I finally got it. :) I GOT IT, and I had to share that small nugget with you guys. You are never too old to learn something. 
Trust God and yourself so you can propel forward with the journey that was designed (JUST FOR YOU).
So, life doesn't make, but it will when you get and stay on your course.
P.S. My dress is from Old Navy, and it was only $7. ( Yep, that's right 7 buckeroos).
Oh, and the ring, earrings, and bracelets I am wearing is a DIY made by me! You can see a few bits on my Youtube channel: Tangie Bell

Can anyone guess where or what I will be doing this summer? 
SideNote: Get yourself a cup or bottle that makes you feel happy, remember its the simple things in life that don't make sense, but it only makes sense to you. :) lol I know that was a mouth full, but hopefully, it makes a little bit of sense. :)
Image: Lampe Berger on table. Seen first on Bits and Babbles blog.  Last, but not least, my hubby bought me the new Lampe Berger. It is better than a candle, and it burns such a pleasant smell throughout our home. I think this has to be my favorite thing to light up at the moment. I feel so good when the house is clean, and it reeks of a beautiful wood smell that embarks happiness all around me.

Hint: Surround yourself, around good smells, positive people, and good fig eating.

That's all Folks!

Until Next Time See Ya In a Bit!
