Drowning.

Last day of the month calls for my monthly lesson update. It feels like an eternity since I’ve done this. Although, it has only been a month! One month. Last month at this time I was in Washington. I was comfortable. Yearning for more, but comfortable. I had my supportive friends and community. Today, I’m…

My Last Day.

Today was the last day. I walked through the doors to my counseling session for the last time after four and a half years. The last face to face conversation with the one person in my life that truly and fully understands me, believes in me, and pushes me to keep fighting the good fight….

Does anyone really care?

Honestly, the past few days I’ve been debating whether to share my thoughts about this past month. I thought to myself, “Does anyone really care?” “Is it really worth sharing?” “Is this more for me than anything?” Then I realized… What does it matter? Stop getting in your head and go for it. So, here…

31,536,000 Seconds

31,536,000 seconds. 525,600 minutes. 8,760 hours. 365 days. 12 months. Exactly a year today. I totally didn’t plan my post today to be about this, but here I am. Writing about my crazy year of refinement. The toughest season of God refining myself and my family. I’m tired. Like, dead tired. When will we graduate…

Seeking the Little Wins

The past couple months have been tough. This month, I’ve chosen to really try to focus on the lessons that life is teaching me/us and take it all in. All the bad. All the gunk. All the selfish people around us. All the wonderful little wins. All the love our little trio (almost quartet) has….

The World Lost a Good One

The world lost a good one yesterday. A truly phenomenal person. A kidney. That’s how I was brought closer to his family almost 12 years ago.As some of you may know, my dad had a kidney transplant when I was 19. I, at the time was unable to donate my own due to my age….

Footprints in the Sand

As I write this, I’m exhausted. Sure, physically a smidge (with a toddler, travel, and being pregnant), but it’s more mentally. I’ve been struggling this week. Holiday season is my absolute favorite, but it also brings up so many emotions. It’s hard. It’s emotional. It’s stressful. I’ve been feeling abandoned lately. I know the Lord…

I. Am. Not. Okay.

I’m not okay. There, I said it. I. Am. Not. Okay. I said it again. It feels like the tightness in my chest released a little bit when I typed it. Except, it still feels odd to say outloud. Which leads me to this post. Why is it not okay to be not okay? We…

New Year, New Blog Posts!

Well all, I’M BACK! I chose to take some time off from blogging for the holidays. I really contemplated leaving for a while, but here’s what I thought about.. If blogging and sharing my ideas becomes “work” then that is defeating the purpose of this whole blog. I want things to be fun and easy. I…

Real Talk: Making New Friends vs. Dating

I started going to a Mom’s group this week. I was going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to be apart of one. After going through so many emotions, I decided to take the plunge and do it. The week leading up to it caused me major anxiety. I was nervous. I…
