Living with Grace

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Do it with grace?” Many of us have experienced moments where we had to hold our chin up and face a situation that felt uncomfortable or difficult. We should not let those moments tear us down, or make us hard. We should choose to live with grace instead. Living with grace means having the ability to face life’s challenges with poise, elegance, humility, and forgiveness. It is about finding the beauty in life despite the negativity around us. Even when things seem bleak or uncertain, when we live with grace we are able to see the silver lining. 

Here are some tips for living with grace and ease despite the challenges you may face in life.

1. Find Your Center

When facing a challenging situation, take a deep breath and find your center. This will help you remain grounded in the present moment so that you can make decisions from an informed place rather than from a place of reactivity or fear. Take your time to assess the situation and determine how you want to respond. Remember that it is more empowering to choose how you will respond instead of allowing yourself to be defined by the circumstance.


2. Speak Your Truth

Living with grace involves speaking your truth—even if it feels uncomfortable or scary.  This means being able to communicate your wants, needs, and boundaries in a way that other people can hear you. It takes courage and strength to speak up, but doing so can allow you to become an agent of change in your own life as well as in other people's lives around you. Speaking your truth is empowering and it unintentionally inspires others.


Live With Goodwill

To live with grace we should be spreading goodwill wherever possible. Show empathy towards others, practice kindness, and do what you can to help those around you who may be struggling or going through a tough time themselves. When we put our energy into radiating goodwill rather than negativity, we create positive ripples that have far-reaching effects on both ourselves and those around us.


You have the power within yourself to live with grace no matter what life throws at you. Remind yourself that there is beauty in every situation—you just need to look for it! Instead of getting overwhelmed by challenges or setbacks, choose instead to be positive, focus on cultivating resilience and look for inner strength so that you can walk through life's storms with ease and grace.

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Trust

Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
