90 Days | I can’t do this without You.

Today marks the completion of my 90-day-commitment to blogging every Wednesday. I reached the finish line. With a sure and quiet confidence and a smile on my face, I made it. Some days.. I’m inspired to write.Some days.. I’m lacking motivation.Some days.. I’m pulling hairs thinking of a topic.Some days.. it comes easy.Some days.. the […]

back to reality

Wow, a taste of life with tiny doses of social media is a welcome nudge back to reality. The last three weeks I’ve been aiming to use social media 1-2 days/week with the intention of connecting with those on my blog. Hello, best decision ever. I truly thought it would be a daunting task. Week […]

God answers prayer!

I get to play interior designer at my job and it’s quite fun. Today I wished I had a few things on hand to place in one of our units but didn’t: a tall plant and something to place on a skinny table behind the couch. As I walked some trash to the dumpster, I […]

know your season

It took me a while to admit this. I don’t have the capacity to do and think all the things I want to do and think – at least right now. Physically, mentally, emotionally. I’ve pushed myself too hard in these areas and I’ve crashed exhausted and upset with myself. There’s no doubt that I […]

hello resistance

bath time

I’m currently babysitting chickens for my parents while they’re out of town, and it has been absolutely freezing!! 27 hours and counting. It’s so cold I feel like I’ve been fighting something since I’ve come here.. or perhaps it’s dust. Either way I decided to break-in their huge bathtub they’ve never used to warm myself […]

internal change

Change is an interesting thing. Change happens both externally (outside of us) and internally (within ourselves). Let’s focus on internal change today. Internal change can happen quickly when there’s strong conviction that connects with your heart. If you embark on change without connecting to your heart, you will inevitably run into burnout, lack of motivation, […]

life is beautiful.

I literally have one hour to write this post before our agreed “deadline.” I confess I didn’t wisely steward my evening to prepare me to write this morning. Triggers got the best of me and I spun into ugly habits of old. I wish it was a different story. I want to rewrite last night […]
