Today, I’m celebrating my Galentines. 💕
Before getting married, I underestimated the gravity that female friendships would have in my life forever.
I wouldn’t be who I am today without the class acts that surround me on every side. I wouldn’t have had the confidence to pursue photography, join the music ministry at our church, enter into marriage, buy + renovate a house, get a dog, pursue a healthier lifestyle, or switch jobs if it weren’t for the many women in my life who went before, turned around, and shined their own light on my many shadowed, unfamiliar paths.
This one right here changed the game forever. She personally extended the opportunity to work with her and transition into a career that truly makes me a better human being; enables me to help others regardless of their age, gender, race, education level, or relationship status; allows time for friendship, family, and REST during evenings and weekends; has no income ceiling; provides the grace that will be SO needed during future seasons of pregnancy + post-partum life; and allows us to travel and enjoy our life.
Since last February, I’ve been blown away by the amount of inspiring women I’ve met and become friends/co-workers with; the vibrant physical + health victories I’ve personally experienced along with members of my family after working to detoxify our lives; the spark that has been re-ignited in me to keep learning, set bigger goals, and lean into challenging situations, pursuing service above all else; and the spiritual + emotional freedom I’ve experienced in letting go of a dependable income stream that, behind closed doors, was wrecking me in most ways.
The women in my life make me better every single day, and I thank God for giving me such incredible influences as friends and sisters for life.
Tag your galentines! 💕
