Thriving in the Middle of the Pain

“It was such a blessing to find myself thriving
in the middle of the pain. Unless you find a way to do that,
there’s always going to be this fake illusion that once you get there–
wherever “there” is for you–you’ll be happy.
But that’s just not life. If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness,
you’re not going to find it in beauty, either.”
~ Joanna Gaines,
Co-Owner, Co-Founder & Lead Designer – Magnolia Homes,
& Co-Star – Fixer Upper

That Book, It’s My Life

“Inside that book, it’s my life-all the places
where I’m hurting or I laughed
or I cried or I prayed.
And I’ve had to pray a lot!”
