Living In Wholeness   Leave a comment

So I came across this magazine at work about a month ago titled Magnolia Journal 

It is inspired by and created by Joanna Gaines and her husband Chip

You may recognize their names from their show Fixer Upper 

I have watched the show a dozen or more times and like the Property Brothers or similar programs they remodel houses

Its Its interesting and some of the places look pretty terrific when they are done with them

AT any rate,  i came across this magazine and find it enchanting in a simple pleasurable way.

I subscribed to it and got my first magazine yesterday

In this months magazine the very pretty totally put together Joanna Gaines talks of in pursuit of Wholeness

Living your best self not just half mother, half wife, or half on the career

But to balance it all and live in Wholeness

Easier said than done in my opinion but never say never

This lovely woman who seems to be able to do it all inspires me

I enjoy reading her thoughts and her views on this thing called life

Lord knows I am never living in complete Wholeness simply because I spend a lot of hours watching TV or entertaining or being entertained by my grandchildren

Don’t get me wrong. I have a pretty damn good life, but I tend to roll with whatever is going on around me

I don’t live in Wholeness

I live in my family, my job,  in others

Rarely is there an hour or more in a day when I do anything just for me

I have kind of lost myself living this life

And while I wouldn’t change any of it, I am aware of not fully living in my Wholeness

One might think I am feeling down and blue about it, but honestly I’m not down or blue

Just thinking outloud and giving a shout out to Joanna Gaines and her ability to have it all

Kudos to all women who can juggle it all
