Discovering Extraordinary Grace in an Ordinary Life

Day 12…It Isn’t About the Flowers

Flowers, chocolate, diamonds.

What things show you that someone loves you? Is it even about things?

Of course not! We’re all quick to reply. But there is a truth in the beauty of gifts given to you by someone who loves you. There’s a tenderness. A reminder that you are loved so much that someone would invest in you. Money. Time. Thought. You are worthy of that investment.

In life, sometimes we forget to invest in people. Sometimes we wish someone would invest in us. Today isn’t about wishing. It isn’t about doing enough. Today I would encourage you to do one thing.

Do something for yourself.

Buy flowers. Just for you because they are beautiful.

Cook the dinner you love for no other reason than you love it.

Get your nails done because you want to.

Go for a walk somewhere beautiful.

Listen to the song you love, over and over again.

Wear that dress because it makes you feel good.


The point today is not what you do. It’s just taking a moment to do something for yourself because you are worthy of love and beauty. Tell us what you did for you today in the comments!

I am emotional and logical. I am strong and dependent. I am a juxtaposition of head and heart exploring it all through writing. And in all my mixed-up ways I am loved. I'm here to tell you that you are, too. Just the way you are.
