Do Your Thing

BY TARA BURKE

I’ve been doing more blogging on Instagram these days and this is what I posted as the caption for this outfit:

When you’re tempted to look to the right and left at other people’s callings, successes, & blessings, remember God chose you for a specific “thing” that He purposed for you before you were born. Do your thing, run your race, carry your cross. There’s freedom in not chasing after things God didn’t call you to, not running in multiple races and not putting crosses on your back that weren’t meant for you.

It’s so important to not get consumed with comparison and be confident in the purposes that God has for YOU and only YOU. It’s definitely easier said than done, but God has freedom for you when you trust in His plan for your life. This top reminds me of that and it was on sale at Target for $3 (lol) so it was a win-win on all accounts. I also got the pants and platform sandals from Target as well.

Where are all my people who are bad at directions? I’m not the best navigator when it comes to street names, main roads and highway exits I should know. I’m really good at visually remembering where I am. When there are no formal directions, I’m the one who get us home because I remember that tree with a strange nook in it that we turned right at to get to the main road. Just had to defend myself for a second (for what it’s worth, haha) because Cailin can get a little annoyed of my version of having a sense of direction.
