Welcome to Gracefully Rambling! My name is Jackie and I am in my late 20’s… I’d love to tell you I’ve known who I was since I was 12 and that I’ve never strayed off the path. But, that wouldn’t be truthful nor would it be a realistic expectation. I find as humans we are consistently evolving, and if you aren’t, possibly you should re-evaluate. I feel each day it is important to strive towards being a better version of the person you were yesterday. Before you knock my theory by saying, “Well, we are all perfect in God’s eyes” (which I whole heartedly agree with). I’d like to explain my reasoning…The reason I feel we should each be living each day striving to be a better version of the person we were yesterday is because if you are simply living to “get by”, that’s not enough, you are doing a disservice to your self, your children, your family, your community, to the world, and to the big man upstairs. I’m not saying you have to become a millionaire, I am not saying you have to work every night in a soup kitchen, nor am I saying you aren’t entitled to a “lazy” day because the good Lord knows I have my share of those…What I am saying is that each day you should try to be better than the person you were yesterday…You aren’t going to succeed at this everyday, in fact you might fall on your face 90% of the time, but the point is you are aware of what is going on around you and what you can do to make this world a better place. My whole “graceful rambling” basically boils down to…Don’t become complacent, don’t accept things simply because you don’t “feel” like changing them, don’t ignore the broken, and don’t allow yourself to become “broken”–we are all beautiful, and we were put here to do good things!
So with that being said…I still haven’t found myself–the things I do know, when I love I love with all my heart, my family is everything, I am a hard worker–and I will settle for nothing less than the best, I don’t think I was put here to bear children, but I do think I was put here to do amazing things, I am a mom to two amazing furbabies who I wouldn’t trade for all the tea in China, my heart has been with the same man for 11 years, we recently married this past August, and I believe I will be with him for the rest of my living breathing years, I love to read, write, and craft. My 9-5 jobs have always been pretty black and white with no gray, yet I am very artistic and my world is full of color, I don’t understand why some people find it so hard to be nice.
The purpose of my blog is just to gracefully ramble, about my views of the world, society, and my life. My views maybe controversial at times, I don’t take the popular route–I chose the route that matches my beliefs.
I hope you check back often to read my ramblings, at that I can inspire you to do something great either for yourself, your family, or the world.
