If I’m baking, it means I’m healing.
I love to bake. I have loved to bake ever since I was a little girl. My mother is an incredible baker, and I guess it is one of the many things I picked up from her. I’ve noticed a pattern…I seem to bake a lot at times when I am filled with joy. There are times when I feel free and limitless, and these are the times when I find myself expressing my free spirit through actions that bring me joy. I haven’t felt free and limitless for a while.
There’s a lot going on in our world, and I can’t stress enough how important I think it is to remain involved and aware. With that said, I know how draining it can be. There are external factors that make us feel like we aren’t worthy or capable, that joy isn’t ours to claim, and that kind of weight eventually takes a toll. I’ve been feeling that weight lately. It’s this overwhelming feeling of being unable to get ahead, feeling limited. Know what? This feeling is a LIE.
When you’re feeling like this, take a step back. Step away from the doubt and fear by engaging in small actions that are filled with intention. Remind yourself of your worth in everything that you do. Wake up with purpose, eat breakfast with intention, head to work with meaning. Ask The Lord to order your steps so that you are constantly walking in your purpose. No one can stop your shine.
Take care of yourself by doing the things you love. You deserve to be free. You deserve to enjoy your life to the fullest. Reclaim your joy. There is no room for fear and doubt, that’s not your burden to carry. He has already claimed that load as His own.
