I'm a recovering people pleaser ... I'm learning (okay, slowly) to say 'No' instead, when I'm only doing something to please someone and not because I want to. It's a liberating, if tough, journey.

“Women who say yes to God will see life like few others.  they are drawn in and embraced by a love like no other.  they don’t have to wait until the next time they’re in church to experience God because they sense God’s presence all around them, all through their day.  Instead of merely walking through the motions of lie, they pursue the adventure of the moment by moment divine lessons and appointments God has in store for them.  they expect to see God, to hear from Him and to be absolutely filled by His peace and joy – and therefore, they do and they are.” WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN SAY YES TO GOD // Lysa Terkeurst
