MOST RECENT

At this moment in time, I am wearing two different shoes. I thought it was worth documenting. 🙂.
.
But also, I thought there was a sense in which it conveyed my emotions today. I woke up feeling like everything was upside down.
.
I have also been studying the enneagram. I thought I was a type 9, but turns out I am really a type 4. I did not know I was a creative type person because when I was a child, that part of me was contained.
.
I did not recognize until I was an adult that I am sensitive. And type 4s can be moody and melancholy. All things which can be true of me, but which I don’t love about me.
.
So surely type 4s were other people. But it also turns out that owning who you actually are helps you to become the best version of you instead of the worst version of you.
.
This is me today. Playing basketball in tennis shoes and treating the toes. Feeling moody and then relaxing because I don’t have to stay that way. The girl in me is still there. 😊#shesstillthere

Got to hear Chrystal teach today😊 📖

SWIPE LEFT AND READ. COMPARISON KILLS. Phew. Finally finished reading this book, what an emotional journey...in the words of Akunna "oh my days". There's so much I could share about this book, but I felt that this section is so important and will be relatable to so many. On that note, let me share 2 of my favourite scriptures from the book of Jeremiah - Jeremiah 1:5 tells us "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..." and  29:11 starts off by saying "For I know the plans I have for you...". The message is simple - your maker knew you before you were born and He set you apart for the plans He has for you...the plans God has for you are between you and Him. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing and focus on what God says TO YOU ABOUT YOU. He set us apart to run our own race...run your race at your pace while trusting God's timing #shesstillthere #rescuingthegirlinyou #chrystalevanshurst #comparisonkills #thiefofjoy #christianreading #godstiming #trustgodbro

My life would land at a 5 on a scale from 1-10. I’m still young, I’d say a 5 not because I don’t like it, but because there is so much ahead.
.
My lowest point was when I was 19, I dropped out of pre-med because I decided it wasn’t for me. I still stand by that decision; even though it almost destroyed me. My family had expectations and I had expectations as well. Coming out of a cult like religion I lost all my support and community. This was all happening at the same time. After all this I went into a clinical depression that lasted about 5 years. It was 5 years lost in my life.
.
I started a business 7 months ago and I’m so passionate about it. This passion allows me to work at the intersection of education and professional development. After writing resumes and working as a career coach,  I realized what shifted peoples professional trajectory was their high school experience.
.
So, I’m now developing on a program that I hope will become a program for high school students. I want this to go nationwide.
.
I didn’t know how but, I always knew I wanted to help people but it's been an evolution. I’m ending up in a different place.
.
It took me a long time to see myself. For so long I saw myself as someone I didn't’ recognize and didn’t want to be. The key for me is trusting myself and waiting that out.

A beautiful #MountainStory .
.
.
Rain
flowed over the #mountains
and into the valleys,
to the place you had made for them.
In this beautiful space
You make springs
flow in the valleys,
and rivers run
between the hills.
In the trees near by,
the birds
make their nests and sing.
From the sky
you send rain on the hills,
and the earth is filled
with your blessings. .
.
.
What a beautiful piece of heaven you have blessed me with in this land of the living. This valley is where I enjoy a small space of #cottageliving and master the #ArtofSlowLiving in the #countryside with breathtaking views of the #sea | life is #blooming in my #cottagegarden air is crisp, cool, and winds are high. The valley is bursting with natural springs, #nature at its finest. Give Him your #first5 and enjoy the fruitfulness of #Psalms 104:8‭ #ForTheLoveofGod #ShesStillThere #shesNotlost #EncouragementGallery #LiveAunthentic #LifeLivedBeautifully

God wants to help us get to the place where—in every area of our lives and hearts—we come to realize what God has done for us is bigger than what others have done to us. Where what God has said about us is greater than what others have said about us or to us.

Your life does not have to be defined by the story you’ve lived thus far. Be BRAVE enough to believe you were made for more. Be BOLD enough to believe that healing can take place and that change is possible. Own your story. The girl you want to be is depending on you! #ShesStillThere

It’s been a minute since I’ve played along with a hashtag, but I couldn’t help myself with #CottonStemHeartsSweets Here’s a throwback to J’s 11th birthday boho cake in 2016. (The arrows are the “11.” See what I did there? 😇) This cake is different from most of my cakes because often they are pretty wild rather than, well, just pretty. But I mean, with requests of Pokémon and Star Wars and Harry Potter and rainbows, a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do.
.
With my health stuff there are a lot of ways in which I feel as though I fail in the parenthood department as far as occasions go. But making my kids a special cake each year is something that I try really hard at coming through on for them and hope they will always remember “my mom’s love did that for me.” Although one of them requested macaroons this year. They may change their mind that many months from now, but if they don’t we may have to pay @syndesi_ a visit cuz that’s above my non-paid pay-grade. Mom’s love will also outsource if that’s what makes them happy.😉 (Y’all should check Vy out! Seriously lovely sweets! 💖)

Remember her? .
.
.
Who is she
who looks forth as the morning
Fair as the moon
Clear as the sun

She is beautiful and bright,
as dazzling as the sun or the moon.
I have come down
among the almond trees
to see the young plants in the valley,
to see the new leaves on the vines
and the blossoms
on the pomegranate trees.
I am trembling;
you have made me
as eager for love
as a chariot driver is for battle. .

Getting to know this girl again #mythirdeyesmind #shesstillthere

This is so much more than just a plant, it's sentimental to me in ways I can't put into words! Every single time I see one I think of my Nanny! Now I have 3 planted in my yard! Thanks @lincolnlawnandgarden!
