✨ S E L F  C A R E ✨ This weekend, while the hubs was away with the boys, I did my best to fill that space with things that filled my cup. A mini-facial from my babes at @follain, a manicure + pedicure date with a long time friend, a run along the river in the sunshine, some nourishing food and some not-so-healthy treats, a few chick flicks, a good book, sleeping early and sleeping in. But mostly, I just sat. I leaned into Truth. I listened to podcasts, watched sermons, read devotionals, and I sat in silence to let His Word speak to me. I wrote out prayers and I put to paper the crippling lies that consume me so I can meet them with the weapon of Truth.
.
I poured myself into Him and I let Him fill me.
.
We so often seek to fill ourselves with the things that don’t last. With the things that can’t keep us full. Sure, a face mask and a long soak in the tub might give me enough space to breathe into the present moment, but it doesn’t inform my heart of truth or align my mind to shut out the lies I believe.
.
As I fight my battles, I’m learning to do so from a place of fullness. And not the fake kind. The real, lasting, hard and messy kind.

I’m about to go a little controversial here and say:
.
I don’t believe these words.
.
I am not enough. .
I’ve spent 25 years trying to convince myself that I am. Me. Myself. As I am. But after two and a half decades of continually losing the same battle, I’m finally learning it’s because of that exactly. I’ve tried so hard to force these words to be true. To be enough. Strong enough. Smart enough. Healthy enough. Skinny enough. Giving enough. Gracious enough. Tough enough. But y’all, I’m not. Maybe for periods of time. Maybe for seasons my flesh can muster up enough enoughness. But not for the long haul. And I wasn’t made to be enough. I was made for communion. I was made for dependence. With and on and in something so much bigger than me. That’s why I can say with confidence that my not-enoughness is ok. In fact, it’s that not-quite-fullness that is the most beautiful thing about me. And when I surrender to that, and let the right things fill it- not the wrong things I forever try to stuff in it to fill the empty space- but when I finally surrender to the only thing that can fully fill it, I’m finally and succinctly enough.
.
I’ve shared with y’all about my battle with disordered eating. My battle with forever trying to be enough. And I’ve tasted sweet victory. But my journey’s far from over. My fight against the lies I believe is never ending. My amnesia of the truth I so easily forget is always robbing me of that sweetness I’ve tasted.
.
But I’m still in this fight. I’m still stepping up to the battlefront in my armor. And I think I’m finally saying “Your will be done” in the one area I’ve fought so hard to be enough in.
.
The battle is not over. But victory is promised. And I’m committed to surrender to the right battle and name the real enemy. And I’m committed to telling my story, all the ugliness and darkness and nastiness of it, because I know it’s bigger than my shame. Freedom is coming. Surrender is here. It’s time for the real story to be told.
I love y’all 💛

When the world hurts, when my pain steals the breath from my lungs, when the brokenness really sets in (and you better believe it does) I’ve learned there are few better healing powers than a fluffy puppy, a walk along the river, and a conversation with the One who holds it all.
.
Whatever hurt you feel today, whatever ugly thing tries to steal your joy, don’t forget you have the power to stand firm in who you are, in the freedom that’s been bought for you, and in the love that’s relentlessly lavished upon you. You are loved, and there is grace that stretches so far greater than your brokenness ever can. 💛 #molliemason #gunnergrizzlymason

I will forever believe that the light that shines within me will always be more beautiful than anything that can be seen on the surface, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t choose to love the skin I’ve got.
.
Grateful for my friends at @follain and @follaindallas for helping me learn how to do that well, and with the same love for clean ingredients I choose in the food I eat.
.
I linked all my favorite nontoxic makeup products they showed me yesterday on the @liketoknow.it app. Use discount code “MOLLIE10” at checkout for 10% off! 💄✨

It’s time I tell y’all a special story
🌹The R O S E  S T O R Y 🌹
This day may be crafted by the gift companies to suck up our money, but I’m forever a fan since Feb 14, 2015. After 2.5 years of being totally crazy for this mega cutie that just couldn’t get over his fear of commitment, he planned a full-day treasure hunt that ended with dinner at a charming little Italian restaurant and some candles and flowers on the rocks on the river. In those flowers was a single red rose. He explained to me that he’d always felt like red roses were the most romantic and he knew he’d always save them for the woman he was going to marry. He just felt like one day he’d propose to his future wife with a dozen red roses. So he gave me one to show me that his commitment was real. And he asked me to be his girlfriend. Even though we hadn’t talked about it, I think we both knew that night that this was and game. He was my forever. So he gave me 2 when he told me he loved me. 3 when I visited his hometown. 4 after our first fight. I think he got up to 7. But 10 months later, he gave me a dozen red roses and a rock of absolute perfection 💍 But I still think the first question on those rocks was almost more important than the second one down on one knee. I knew that night that he was a man of integrity and heart and loyalty. Even though he’d spent all those years before fumbling over his words when I asked him about his feelings and expressing actual physical pain on his face when we talked about the status of our emotions, Valentine’s Day 2015, with all its big gestures and sweeping romance, I saw what I needed to see to know he was a man I could share my heart with. And now 4 years later we’re still celebrating V-day with dinner at the same restaurant and dancing on those rocks under the stars.
.
This may be a day of cheesy forced expressions, but for us it will always be a day of choosing. Choosing to share. Choosing to push through. Choosing each other.
.
So grateful this hunk is my forever valentine, and always grateful for the courage he found in this day 4 years ago. 🌹

The T U L I P S have arrived!
🌷
I’m always so excited to see these gorgeous bright blooms in the aisles. They’re so vibrant and so full of life. They just tell the story of newness and joy and awakening. Every February when they pop up in my @traderjoes I get so giddy to take some home, to soak in their beauty, to declare that spring has sprung. But today it really hit me that I might get to hold these perfect blooms in my hands but I never got to see their journey here. I don’t know what dirt they had to grow through, what dead leaves they had to shed, how many hundreds or thousands of miles they had to trek to make their way to my local display. I’ll never know the winter they had to survive.
🌷 
So when my own heart just yearns to see the fruit, to be the bloom (and yearn it does) I pray I have the faith, the deep rooted faith, to know that it’s the circumstances of the treacherous winter that give it its vibrancy. #molliemason

Last Friday, I planned out each day of this week in detail. And each morning I woke up and moved everything around. I snoozed my alarm. I deleted work blocks from my calendar. I pushed to do list items back. And back again.
I felt tired. I felt uninspired. I felt a little worthless. But I chose, as I’m trying to choose in each area of my life, to lean in to those feelings. To recognize them. To sit in them. To sit with the Lord. To evaluate what lies are informing those feelings and replace them with truth. And I came out of this week knowing on a deeper level: my worth is not in my work, no matter how much I try to find it there. My value is not measured by my productivity and a perfectly completed list should never take priority over the pulls placed on my heart to be there for my people, to have hard conversations with my people. To cry when I need to cry and seek when I need to seek. To be present. To live. The real kind of living. #molliemason

The no. 1 thing that’s helped me in my entrepreneurial life: time blocking. Scheduling out my day and putting in tasks to specific hours and places, instead of just being overwhelmed by my long to-do list all day and never actually tackling any one thing. And choosing tasks to crank out in coffee shops with yummy almond milk lattes and cute wallpaper makes work feel a little less like work ☕️💻
.
8 months into this whole I’m-my-own-boss thing and I feel like I’ve finally hit my stride. Should I do a blog post with all my #bossbabe work-for-yourself tips? Let me know👇🏼#Mollie mason
