In the midst of preparing for our little girl to get here, I've been having a hard time dealing with my growing size. I'm growing a human, I know I'm going to be big, but this last week I heard numerous comments like this:
"Wow, you're showing now!"
"You've really gotten big in the last ten days since school started!"
And the best: one of my students from last year asked a teacher friend "Is she pregnant or did she just get fat? I don't want to congratulate her if she just got fat."
That last one just kills me! In the midst of this I'm reminded of Philippians 4:8 that says: "Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things."
Each day we are faced with many issues, and we can fixate on them, or we think about the good instead, because nothing good comes from fixating on something we can't control or fix. I'm growing a human, and that is way more noble, right, lovely, and admirable than me fixating on the comments of others. Whatever it is you're dealing with today, I hope you can find some peace in this realization too.
I'm really loving this cardigan I scored from thredUp (use this link to get $20 off your first purchase). The quality is phenomenal and came in like-new shape. I really wanted to pair it with my white jeans, which have been a real workhorse this pregnancy. I really like the pop of black with my shirt and wedges too!
