'Fixer Upper' star Joanna Gaines' social media post about failure and success is inspiring to the core
The fall issue of her Magnolia Journal is right around the corner and she took this opportunity to share some pearls of wisdom.
'Fixer Upper' star Joanna Gaines may not be doing the show anymore, but she's definitely still just as inspiring. The reality star recently took to Instagram to share a sweet inspiring message about failure and success. With the fall issue of her Magnolia Journal right around the corner, she took this opportunity to share some pearls of wisdom. "I believe that we’re all made ready," she captioned the post featuring the magazine cover.
In the picture, Gaines is standing in the midst of nature looking as beautiful as ever. "Whatever season you’re in, whatever life may throw at you, whether it feels like success or like failure, expected or unexpected, you are made ready. Made ready to learn, to celebrate, to endure.
"To handle all of the things that get thrown your way in every season and to know yourself and take stock of your resources—of all the beautiful things you’re already made of. I’m so proud of my team and this fall issue we’ve created together. Pick up a copy of the Magnolia Journal on national newsstands today or at the link in my profile #MagnoliaJournal," an excerpt from the caption read.
She will reveal some baby nursery decorating tips in this issue as well as making doughnuts and pasta from scratch. The issue also includes details about their latest renovation project - that of a church.
Joanna and her husband Steven have come a long way from being a couple with big dreams to actually designing a line for Target and having their own show. Her design sense is flawless, and she knows it. Just a couple of days ago, she shared a picture of the interiors of her beautiful home, and the woodwork had fans eagerly waiting for tips. Upcycled items adorned the mahogany colors made the photograph picturesque, and her baby's little feet fulfilled the cuteness quotient. She captioned the photo, "Evidence of a late night up with my boy #blowouts #allnighters#thisis40". A stylish late night, for sure!
In the journal, she also reveals that Crew, their youngest baby's room wasn't actually a nursery at all. "Our older kids (Drake, 13, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie, 8) have always shared rooms, but with the eight-year age gap, it didn't seem practical to add a baby to their space," she wrote. "While we didn't have any spare rooms at the farm, this challenge seemed like an opportunity to get creative with the square footage we had. I've always been a firm believer in using each area of our home in a way that best serves the season of life we're in. And that's where we found ourselves earlier this year — reimagining how and where this new baby would best thrive. That's ultimately how our den became Crew's nursery."
