I usually just post about fitness and food but today I wanted to share something about me that many don't know....I consider myself a "spiritual gangster" for many reasons. One reason in particular is because I allowed God to replace the popular with the powerful in my life. Only a few people know that it's been 3 years since I have even hung out with a male in a one-on-one setting. Over this time, I’ve been able to see how God worked through everything, how every event that I've gone through deposited something on the inside. I've learned over time that you’re not defined by your past; you're prepared by your past.
In the dating world I will say the road of obedience yields more attacks, side eyes, eye rolls and deuces 😂🤷🏽♀️ BUT what many don’t realize is that celibacy isn’t something that is merely physical. From my own personal journey, I’ve come to realize that it is more of a mental battle than anything else. It is about making up your mind that you are going to refrain from sex and wanting it bad enough to truly stick with it, regardless of what opportunity presents itself and who comes along looking to change your mind
This year has been a crazy year for me. God has used me in more ways than I've ever imagined 🙏🏾 I'm finally at a place where Maui "feels" like home and I'm actually dating 😊 Abstinence while dating is absolutely possible but it takes intentionality. I recently decided to be upfront and honest about my celibacy commitment and we had "the talk" about boundaries so that he either knows where I stand and knows how to respect me or chuck up the deuces ✌🏾😂 I was pleasantly surprised when he said I was a unicorn 🦄 and he would love to focus on the foundational things and have lots of "day dates" with me ☺️ . Not sure where this is gonna go but I want to thank God for helping me to see the beauty in myself. Beauty that goes way deeper than the surface of all these pics that I post of myself. Life is not easy for unicorns...we're a dying breed 🦄🖤 ....stay true to your journey #celibatelife #mymilkshake 🙅🏽 #growthmindset
