Britt  I have no idea what I want to do with my life.. settling for watching Grey's Anatomy, and working at Chick Fil A, your favorite place to eat.

Everyone please skip the 2011 picture where I wore my mother’s shirts that had “built in boobs” in them. Let’s pretend I didn’t do that.

So thankful for this one who is slowly teaching me that I can see the hand of God in every little thing. We’ve all got giants in our lives, but with God, (and amazing friends like this one) anything is possible ❤️ you already mean so much to me! Thank you for making this Easter weekend memorable for me, Jessica!!!

I promise to not be a butthole to myself. Hell, I promise to love myself. I will remember that my self-worth is NOT based on what I look like, how many followers I have, how much I weigh, or any other stupid crap that has nothing to do with who I am. I will empower other girls and women. I will be kind. fiercely kind. I will remember that just because I’ve had bad days, doesn’t mean I have a bad life. And even on the crappiest days, I will remember this: I. Am. Enough. 💕

Hurry up and have yo baby, boo thang. Little man has been in the oven for long enough 😭 That’s all, you can go back to being pregnant now, love you 😘 #BabyE #BestFriend

Every day I have to constantly remind myself that I can be both brave and bruised and that I deserve to be loved. There’s nothing I’m not worthy of 💕🎩👑

Clue #1: 6am. Cute note and cat earrings. Clue #2: 4:30pm. “Birthday” by KP playing. Clue #3: 5pm-light up cat ears headband.
Clue #4: 5:30pm- cake with song lyrics. Happy Birthday to my favorite 17 year old!! I’m so glad the wait is finally over and that I could reveal the best present ever to you!! I’m so thankful to get to be your big sister. I love you so much, and I can’t wait to spend Sunday night “witnessing” the best show ever #KatyPerryWitnessTour

It’s not about the presents. It’s not about me. It’s about the people I get to encounter on a daily basis. It’s about the respect, the laughs, the customer service, and the love of our regular customers at Chick Fil A. I’ve created close bonds with many of them, including Mr. Mike and his wife Mrs. Pat, a man who comes every morning at 6am on his way to dialysis. His wife crocheted me a scarf for Christmas. There’s Ms. Myra who works for the YMCA and comes every Friday morning, who told me back in August that she wanted to get me a Christmas present, and she did. There’s Nicole Byrd who comes ALL the time to get a sweet tea on her way to work and she never needs a straw because it goes in her yeti cup. Her gift to me was a total surprise. I’m incredibly grateful. This year, Christmas is hard for me. It’s the first time in 19 years that I’m not in the place I used to call home. And no, it’s not about the presents. It’s about these people, along with many others, who made sure I felt so very loved even when I feel so very alone this holiday season. Yes, I cried a lot today, but God puts people in your life for a reason. He’s kept me working at Chick Fil A this long for a reason. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to say your regular customers have become some of your FAVORITE people. I know none of them will see this, but just know I really love you all. Thank you for making this Christmas not as sad as I prepared myself to be.

Hey @karijobe you made the cut TWICE! Sorry I didn’t get to see your show tonight, I tried my best to be there. @taybro92 so glad you made the cut, too. You made the second half of the year AMAZING for me

“While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light." When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them.”
‭‭John‬ ‭12:36‬ ‭ESV‬‬ This verse represents my sweet Christy A in so many ways. She tells me to be a light all the time, to always have faith and be an encouragement to others, especially our preschool babies. She deserves to be recognized as being one of the brightest lights I’ve ever met and deserves to be celebrated ENDLESSLY, not just today on her birthday. Happy birthday, friend! I love you!

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10
The Lord is definitely worth acknowledging right now, as I’m in bed replaying how many times I’ve been blessed recently and couldn’t even see it because I chose to focus on the negative things that were also happening. These two have stuck by my side throughout everything and I push myself to always make them proud because they’re seriously God sent. I have no idea what I would do without my best friends right here, my other “parents” it feels like sometimes. I love you guys so much. Thank you for loving me when I feel the most unloveable ❤️

And post #3: owning your story is the bravest thing you will ever do. That’s what I’ve been trying to do for the last few months. I started going to therapy. I sucked up my pride and I admitted that I couldn’t deal with a couple traumatic events that happened to me and I never did anything about. I left my house. I moved out and didn’t turn back. Since then, life has been really tough and scary. A lot of people have told me to “get over” whatever I went through, or to forget about it. However, trauma permanently changes us. This is the big scary truth about trauma: there is no such thing as “getting over it.” The five stages of grief model marks universal stages in learning to accept loss, but the reality is in fact much bigger: a major life disruption leaves a new normal in its wake- there is no “going back to the old me.” You are different now. This is not a wholly negative thing. Healing from trauma can also mean finding new strength and joy. The goal of healing is not a papering-over of changes in an effort preserve or present things as normal. It is to acknowledge and wear your new life. With courage. Brené Brown said “of all the things trauma takes away from us, the worst is our willingness, or ability, to be vulnerable. There’s a reclaiming that needs to happen.” So, from this day forward, I’m going to start learning how to reclaim my worth and my potential. Of course it isn’t going to be easy, but with an awesome therapist, and supportive friends, I know I can do it. #longerthanexpected #lifelessons
