Have you stopped beating yourself up over the person that you used to be? Tuh, I have!
I’m Tina. A 31-year-old wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend -you name it! I understand that we live in a time where it’s important to appear like you have it all together. Let me be the first to tell you that I DON’T! So, I won’t be showing you how to be the perfect mom because my kids run my life. I won’t be teaching you how to be the perfect wife because some days I’m surprised my husband and I still LIKE each other. I’m seriously laughing at the thought of a perfect wife! LOL! If you were expecting any of that along with the secret to grow 20 inches of hair in 30 days, then I am sorry to disappoint you!
What I am here to do is share little gems from my everyday life with you. The good, the not so good and the hilarious! I’ve been very good at sharing my good days, I mean who doesn’t love a good highlight reel? However, I want to be more transparent about my not so good days. The right amount of sparkle can be the silver lining on tough days if you take the time to notice.
What is sparkle, you may ask? Well, it’s the childhood nickname I’ve been answering to my whole life and just recently I paused to think about exactly what it means. By definition it means to shine with light, to be lively, vivacious or witty. I’m pretty sure I’ve been living those words out loud my entire life. However, I’ve recently given it my own little definition. Sparkle is God shining through my heart and into every area of my life. I’ve certainly made more mistakes than I care to count but I will never allow those mistakes to define me. You’re supposed to grow. You’re supposed to thrive. You’re supposed to sparkle …and don’t let anyone tell you different. I hope we can spend the year growing and sparkling together!
