We Are the Diamonds + Free Download

"In the wake of every heartache
In the depth of every fear
There were diamonds, diamonds
Waiting to break out of here."

Music is moving.  The lyrics of a song can put into words feelings that you just haven't been able to speak.  Songs can move you to action.  They can refresh your soul and ignite hope. 

"Diamonds" by Johnnyswim, is one such song.   During the last season, I was feeling beaten down, like a failure and unsure about where my journey was taking me or if I was going to like the destination.  I was tempted to believe that I wasn't enough and that I had really made a mess of things career wise.  Insert this song on my way to the grocery store one rainy Sunday afternoon. It spoke healing to my heart and caused bravery and hope to rise up.  I wanted to share it with you.

I hope these lyrics sink down deep in your heart and that you would rise up out of any dust in your life.  

I created a couple phone/desktop background downloads to remind you that "We are the diamonds".

No Fooling - Free Wallpaper and Backgrounds for April

Normally, I am not the biggest fan of April because I prefer sunshine over rain.  BUT this April, I am just so happy that winter is over that I am happy for rainy days between the sunshine.  I mean, let's face it...rain gives life.  It nourishes the ground and provides us life in both food and drink.  It's important.  And just like physical rain is essential, in our lives seasons of rain (pain, hurt, grief, growing) are essential too.  They make us stronger, the teach us and if we allow them, they bring us life and refreshing after the downpour.  

As a reminder for all the rainy days this month, however they find you, I created a few wallpaper/backgrounds for your computer, phones or tablets to help you find the beauty in the day.

I got my own back: Free Printable

Do you have your own back? So many times, I so easily sabotage myself when it comes to eating healthy, choosing to rest, taking care of myself that I don't have to worry about someone else messing me up.  Do you do that? I know I need to have my own back.  I need to do better about taking care of me and being the first one to stand up for myself.

Leave it to dear Maya to bring the inspiration for today's post.  If I could have half the wisdom that lady had, I would be so wise. :) Have your own back today!
