I am.

I am mean but kind. I am stubborn but flexible. I am difficult but easy. I am hard but soft. I am an over-thinker. I am loveable. I am smart. I am beautiful. I am complicated. I am fun. I am a lover. I am a nurturer. I am a fighter. I am sensitive. I cry when others think I shouldn’t. I laugh too loud. I have attitudes for moments but then I am okay. I love to be hugged. I loved to be kisses. I love to smile. I love to be paid attention to, during the good and the bad. I have feelings, sometimes they are all over the place, but they are mine and I own them. I have dreams that will turn into reality. I have fun. I have lonely days. I am perfect in my own way. I am dysfunctional. I am well put together. I am a listener. I am a talker. I know how to apologize. I know how to forgive. I know that life is short so love and love hard. I get sad when others don’t love me hard like I love them. I get sad when others stay mad too long. I get sad when others choose not to listen. I get sad when others don’t get me. I get upset when others try to change me for the bad. I am learning that growth is not a bad thing. I am learning to be okay with change. I am learning that I will not always come out on top. I am learning that I am different. I am learning that life is a journey and I must enjoy it. I give respect because I want respect. I give love because I want love. I give my attention because I want attention. I give my heart because I want someone to give their heart to me.

I am me.

I am flawed.

I am perfect.

I am who I am.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” -Psm 139:13-14

A little over a week into the new year!

When the new year comes around, we often think of resolutions for ourselves and sometimes even our families. we find ourselves saying or hear others saying… “A New Year, a new me!” is that really the case? Are we totally revamping ourselves because it is a new year? Let’s think about this… Why not be a new and better you every day you wake up. Strive to be better than you were the day before and encourage others to do the same. How about a new day, a new me. If you are completely content on who you are, I applaud you but I know we can always do something a little better every day.

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” -Colossians 2:7

Full of Joy

 Good morning loves and Happy Monday!!

This is my very first blog!!!! I know many of the text were not coming through, so a blog was the next best thing.  I will be sending out the messages every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday like the text messages.  This is my first blog so be patient with me as this is new for me but I want to make sure the messages get out.  Enjoy!!!

“Always be full of joy in the Lord, I say it again–rejoice!”

-Phil. 4:4

Do you ever look back at yourself in photos and wish you could go back? Treasure TODAY more than your youth. We are given today to praise God for who we are and where we have come from.  Anytime the Bible repeats, it’s important to take note it’s an extra important lesson.  The Lord has brought you to this spot today, let’s find JOY in it!

We can get caught up in the negative of everyday life that can determine how we respond to our loved ones and strangers we meet on the street, let’s challenge ourselves to be full of joy and spread that joy to others.  No one said it would be easy, but where is the fun if it’s easy 😉

I love you to the sky and beyond and God loves you even more ❤
