Me

In this season, I’m forced to silence the noise and look into the mirror.

And my reflection needs work.

But I’ve never been happier.

I can’t describe it.

I’m staring into the mirror and owning my journey.

Faith

I wake up every morning with a knot in my stomach and a promise in my heart.

I didn’t leave my job for the ‘next best thing.’

In fact, I believe the best thing is where you’re planted.

So this is not about chasing opportunity for me.

Please

Desperation comes from a place of confidence - knowing that God is going to do what He says He will do.

It’s my emotion connected to His reality.

Begging comes from a place of distrust - lack of clarity on the promises of God and confusion.

But daughters don’t have to beg and neither do sons.

Talk

We’re quick to post on social media but slow to listen.

We’re quick to form opinions but slow to listen.

We’re quick to talk about the downfalls of others but slow to listen.

I know I’m guilty.

Art

I think I appreciate good art because so much of it’s meaning is left up to the observer. From music to dance to paintings to spoken word - art communicates something to our souls that I’m not sure we always realize we need.

Present

If you’ve been following my journey, you know that I am a recovering people pleaser. And while I’m growing in my security every day, I still wrestle with caring about what you think about me. And it’s exhausting.

I think that’s why I find peace in the presence of God.

I don’t have to pretend when it comes to Him.

Minimalism

If you know me, you know I’m a very simple person. I like my coffee black. I wear mostly black. I don’t decorate for the holidays. I don’t struggle with FOMO (fear of missing out). I enjoy listening more than I enjoy talking. I’m pretty laid back and I’m extremely flexible.

Scared

I’m a problem solver and a leader. I can handle most stress with grace and ease.

But there are a few things that make me stop in my tracks.

Those few things make me a hypocrite.
