the vlog where i talk about how words hurt {my heart is heavy this week}

Happy Friday Friends!!

Another week in Florida is done! This week has been pretty trying for me. I am reallying having a hard time with this hotel living. I'm trying to be positive and optimistic but some days I just fail at it miserably.

I would like to warn you ahead of time there is crying in my vlog this week. I obviously didn't intend for it to go that way but I just got really emotional talking about what has been weighing on my heart this week.

I also included some fun instagram pics from the past week. I love all the fun photo apps on my phone, camera line, bubble frame, phonto and instagram make a boring pic look fun!

Saturday morning coffee with the hubs

have you seen this deal I put in the shop Wednesday night?? Earrings and a single rosette necklace for $18!!
pretty notebooks from target for shereadstruth
love that Thursday morning Scott and I got to spend time in the word, together. He was reading about David and Goliath, i was reading proverbs 3.
skinny girl margarita, yes please!
happy hour last Friday night! I think we will be there again tonight. 50% off drinks, yes please!
love starting my morning this way
new business cards!
I needed a break from this hotel so I headed to Pensacola for a coffee shop date with myself.
gym time!
Sunday was an arm party and diet coke kinda day

I just really want to give you a hug right now. I'm thankful that you're acting in such a positive light for military spouses and families.
I was in your shoes not long ago and it's very trying to say the least. It only takes one person to ruin it for others, and seems like it takes forever to build up what used to be a good reputation or standing in life.
Try to stay positive. I promise it won't always be this way. A few weeks, months, or years from now what seems like the worst thing won't matter anymore.
Keep doing what you're doing. You're a good person and only want good for others. Whether you think so or not, you are making a positive difference.

So much respect for you and your husband! I am not a military wife but my sister-in-law is and I come from a long line of military "lifers" (both grandpas). Keep your head up! Thank you for you and your husband's sacrifice. Ps. Love the hair bow!!!

(((BIG HUGS)))

We are an Army family. Hubs has been in for 15 years. I've been with hubs for 11.5 years and married for 9.5. And unfortunately this happens sooooo much. I don't know what exactly what was said on the blog but I can just imagine. This is one reason I don't do moms groups/military groups online or not.

Where are you all stationed now? I'm guessing you are in the process of pcs'ing since you are in a hotel.

If you ever need to chat for sure email me!!!

I am not part of the Military community in any way, but I feel with out men and women like your husband and their amazing husbands and wives (like you) who support them, we would not be sitting here right now having this little coffee date!! I have always had a special place in my the military (and their families). To protect our country, to protect us is the most amazing and selfless thing. I am sure for you it has it's ups and downs. But you should definitely be so proud of yourself for all that you do. (I am finding myself crying now!) And those that think otherwise, must have so much doubt in themselves to think that bashing others is OK and they need to realize that we all make this world go around. And in supporting and loving others, it also makes it a better place.
I hope things get better soon for you, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Hope you have a great rest of your Friday and a FABULOUS weekend!!

i'm still listening to your vlog as i type this. my heart is also heavy for those who treat others ugly. i've been hurt by both military spouses and by handmade gals...and one was a military/handmade gal. and it's ok. i know what the bible says about judging others {and being ugly to others}. and you know. and all we can do is pray. pray for their hearts. pray for our hearts to not feel hatred towards that person who hurt us. your thoughts are EXACTLY mine!!! we can not please everyone. we can not be liked by all.
keep your head up. you're inspiring others!

Ariel said...

Hey girl! Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Yours is soooo cute!!! Also, great post today :) Thank you for sharing what is on your heart!!!

Nicole said...

I love this vlog. You said everything I've been feeling this week because of the little "issue" this week. Thanks for putting it out there and making the world a little better!

Sara said...

*giant hugs!!*

Bashing others is never okay. Hopefully the necessary actions were taken to get this page taken down. I don't understand why people are so elitist and think they're better than others, and I've definitely been on the receiving end myself. It hurts, truely. I'm totally feeling you wholeheartedly on this vlog. You definitely cannot please everyone, but for those who you do please, they're going to take your good faith with you.

I'm definitely going to share this vlog on Sunday, because it just touched me so much.

(((((hugs)))) Jen ,
Its so sad that people don't realize what comes out of their mouth has a diff affect on each person how hears or reads just like 1000 word say a picture 1000000 more for a persons who speaks.
But it good your turn to the one and only person who will never let you down . God and his word.

Thank you Jen for making the world brighter !

much love Paulina

Girl, I'm sorry you had to deal with the drama of all that. Wish I could hug you & spend some time over coffee & out of a hotel room!

Shaina Longstreet said...

I don't know how I missed this vlog last week, but I watched it today and was so touched by your vulnerability and how much of your heart you shared. You are such a loving spirit and your words ring true no matter what life we have chosen. Thank you for the inspiration and kind reminder to think of what I say. Hope you're feeling a little better this week. Thinking of you. <3 and hugs.

I'm just catching up with coffee dates (I'll be sharing starting next month) and I wish I could hug you through the computer. It's never ok to put people down. It's something I have been feeling too on the receiving end (I'm not a military wife, but I am getting comments about me personally)'s not fun. I always try to keep in mind that we have no right to judge. I hope you are feeling better and had a good time in VA! xoxo- Lauren
