run free & fearless.

Sigh. It's the weekend, friend. And as you enter your (hopefully) lazy Saturday morning routine, I encourage you to take a few moments to think. To pray. Maybe even journal. To brew a pot of tea and just be. And to think about your year so far and where you are going. I did this week, and I when I saw the inspiration above I was inspired afresh to embrace a spirit of fearlessness and to bravely chase dreams every day. May we all do this, because we are free - for, "...Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." 2 Corinthians 3:17. 


Announcing that I'm so thrilled and thankful to be joining Quite Magazine as a contributing writer!! Friends, this is an amazing women's magazine - I'll share more about it soon, but until then - check it out here: Quite Magazine

And some inspiration from my Instagram (find me - @erin_sweetnessitselfblog) 
And of course, some of my favorites from those who wrote their lists and shared their photos for my hashtag - #ThankfulSweetness - include it in your Instagram photos & tweets, sharing the things you are daily thankful for, and the little Thankful lists you make and I share my favorites every week. 


Happy weekend, loves.

Stay sweet and stay brave :)

  6. You are being used by God. So blessed to have found your blog. Even though I'm an older woman (did I just type that?) I love reading blogs of young women who are chasing after God and am inspired to keep running after Him. Happy weekend to you!
