Okay God….Now What?

August 3, 2018

Hey guys… I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted something new. I’ll be completely transparent, July and even the start of August has been rough! The stress of life even began to take a toll on my health earlier this week. Thank You Lord for being Jehovah Rapha, my healer and protector. Trying to balance life can sometimes be overwhelming, and you just find yourself in a terrible rut that you can’t seem to dig your way out of. Initially when God gave me the vision to launch this site, I was extremely motivated and eager to begin my... View Article

Halfway Mark: 5 pivotal things I’ve learned so far this year.

June 25, 2018

      1. How to separate Expectations from Reality.  If you’re anything like myself, you tend to put a lot more hope/faith into people than they’re usually deserving or capable of fulfilling. In the end, it’s usually you who ends up equally dissatisfied and disappointed. I’ve always had a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that people don’t have the same heart or think as I do. There are many instances where I would react/act a certain way and     subconsciously “expect” someone else to do the same. I’ve quickly noticed how much it affects and... View Article

This is for them 20 somethings…

May 10, 2018

  This year, roughly towards the end of August I will be approaching age 27. My sweet parents and family love to remind me that I’m hitting the “30” mark. Subconsciously hinting at grandchildren, marriage etc. Not to mention logging into social media outlets and at almost every refreshed screen there’s an engagement video, newly discovered creative gender reveal display, people you graduated high school with going on family vacations with their own husband and child(ren), and others basking with joy in thier masters or continued education graduate photos. Certainly you’re happy for them, but you’re also reflecting over the goals... View Article

Fear of the Unknown

May 4, 2018

I can’t help but laugh when I see those memes on social media about “overthinking”. Seriously, that’s me! I literally overthink everything. Over the course of my life, I have always liked to be “in the know”. I’m one of those people who say that they like surprises, however will probably end up ruining my future husband’s proposal in someway because truly I don’t (Ha!, let’s just hope he is REALLY good). I recently discovered that It’s not that I don’t like to be surprised, I just like to be in control. It’s comforting. The -fear of the unknown- simply... View Article
