    I Hope You Fail – How It Will Make You A Better Person

    I hope you fail!  I really do! When someone says “failure” usually the words that come to mind are sadness, fear, making a fool of myself, desperation, panic, shame, and heartbreak. But here’s what else you need to know about that word!  Helping, generous, openness, knowledge, bravery and courageous are all built from failure. To pretend that we can get to the latter emotions without feelings the pains of failure is a dangerous and misguided assumption. Your failure is guiding you to greater things. It is preparing you for interactions with others in which you will be viewed as the brave one and the generous one. You ever have those…

    Finding the Beauty in Your Struggle

    The caterpillar and the butterfly is the epitome of beauty grounded in struggle.  The process of morphing from a caterpillar into a butterfly is actually a very painful process.  It’s hard to see when we are in the middle of the struggle, but when you arrive on the other side, 99% of the time, you begin to see where the beauty was hidden or when it emerged.  Even in death there is more waiting to be seen.  For almost everything, the beauty of the struggle is there waiting to be seen. It’s no secret that I suffer from depression.  Some say it’s due to circumstances surrounding me and others say…

    Success at Work VS Success at Home

    Business’s grow a lot faster than people do!  With the rise of social media, businesses can sky rocket through the roof and if you aren’t personally keeping up then you’ll get left behind.  This year, The Ruffled Daisy celebrated 8 years of being in business!  It’s been an amazing 8 years but it’s also been a challenging 8 years.  Running a business on your own (with just the hubby’s help) is a lot of work.  Some days were spent not giving enough to my husband and kids because the business needed me.  Some days were spent stressed and frazzled because I didn’t have enough hands or hours in the day.…

    Pearls of Wisdom – Jennifer Wiltse

    It is one of my heart’s desires to encourage women to be all that they can be.  Life is tough and many times, we make it harder on ourselves than we need to.  We are made to be amazing beings!  And while we ARE amazing – we are far from perfect.  Life is all about embracing our imperfections and making them beautiful. Those beautiful imperfections are what defines you.  It is in those imperfections that we are called to share and create beauty with others.  Just like a smooth marble has beauty, so does a rough and callused oyster shell.  An oyster shell is made to withstand a rough and tumble…

    Her Tree of Life

    She is born from a fragile seed. Planted and nourished to grow into amazingness. The seed begins to sprout and emerge from the ground showing signs of life. It faces the sun with each day and hunkers down in the darkness.  Through the years of growing and maturing, she grows stronger and taller not knowing what storms and showers will come her way. As each season passes, she embraces the changes that each brings.  In spring, her soul is on fire and she is being reborn into the creature that God created. She is pursuing her dreams and running after all the newness that life brings. She is blooming and…

    Have Courage To Follow Your Own Path

    We don’t always know what our path is. Paths take sharp turns sometimes and other times they are gentle. Sometimes there are steep hills to climb and other times there may be downed trees to move so you can clear the way for you to continue. At the end of the path is God. Waiting for you, to tell you “job well done”. You’re gonna fall. You’re gonna skin your knee and there are times you may break some bones. You start on this path by yourself and you pick you people along the way go help you navigate it. Some of those people take a turn that you aren’t…

    Let God Consume You More Than Life

    Life struggles are there to help you have a heart and understanding for others who have struggled in the same way.  I can feel the positive growth in my current struggles, but damn…it’s painful. When you’ve been one way your whole life and you have a soul awakening and the things you have prayed about for years start changing…it’s scary…and bittersweet. Joy is in my heart because my life’s prayers are finally being answered and so many questions about why are being answered…but along with it comes pain. Pain because it’s change and it’s different. That’s scary as hell. Being someone who always thought she adapted to change well, I…
