Rory Feek Remarries 8 Years After Losing Wife Joey to Cancer

It's been 8 years since Rory Feek lost his wife, best friend, and music partner Joey Feek to terminal cancer. Now he's tying the knot again, this time, with daughter Indiana by his side.

“I Wonder Why I Wasn’t Invited. I Wonder Why I Wasn’t Included. I Walk Up to People and Get That Awful Sinking Feeling They Were Just Talking About Me’

I know that sticking out is sometimes the greatest compliment you could ever be given.

I know that the world won’t change if I’m busy blending into the crowds and the cliques, or constantly changing myself to earn their cheers.

I know that being popular is terribly over-rated.

I know that I am content with who I am, with where I am, and with what I have.

I hope you know that too. That you aren’t the same girl you used to be. That you don’t have to worry about fitting in anymore. That you don’t have to try so hard anymore.

That you are free to be exactly who God created you to be.

That you don’t have to be everyone’s cup of tea.

That you don’t have to be anything or anyone you don’t want to be.

You do you, friend. You do it with a smile. You do it with love. You do it with all the confidence in the world.

You do it bright, and if it burns other people’s eyes, so be it. Tell them to put on their cheap sunglasses cause it’s about to get light up in here, and then just keep on shining with everything you have. Life’s too short to be dim.
