Welcome to my blog. Where I share the breathings of my heart. My life stories, my experiences, my motivations, my inspirations, my downfalls, my successes, and everything in between. I am the mother of three beautiful girls who continuously show me what true love is. From the kindness of a smile from my oldest, to therapeutic and wise words from my middle child Kaitlin, to the sweetest hugs and kisses out of the blue from my littlest one Lily… without them, life would be incomplete. I am constantly on a journey to better myself; for others, mainly. Because… after all… life’s not about what’s in it for us, but what’s in us FOR OTHERS. God has shown me such amazing love through Him and I am forever in His graces and in His hands. If I can be of courage and good cheer to another soul…if I can offer kindness to a stranger… if I can comfort another… I do it through His love. Without Him, I am not whole. One more person saved in Jesus’ name is one reason I’m alive. My life’s passion is to comfort and counsel. My journey continues as I work towards my Doctorate at one of the most accredited and amazing schools for the MFT program in the world. Stay tuned throughout my journey as I live with purpose and passion for the Lord. ❤
Emotions are fickle. People are fickle. They are there one moment and the next they are gone. People say things they don’t mean. They lie to themselves. They are stuck in their own bubble. When you find true friends, keep them close. They are like family. They will make time for you at a moment’s notice. They will call you to check up on you. No matter how many times you get down even if it’s about the same thing, they’ll gently guide you and make you feel better always making time for a friend. They consider your feelings and emotions. They match deed to word. As much as we all have flaws as human beings, friends don’t just point out your flaws; they point out their own flaws, even sometimes doing so first. Friends remain focused in their life’s tasks, but all the while they still make time to lend an ear, a hand, but mostly their soul. Friends are not selfish. They are quick to apologize. They are gentle and slow to anger. They motivate you. They inspire you. They want the best for you and truly enjoy your presence. They make you feel appreciated always! They make it known that your time spent is appreciated and that your friendship is valued. They meet you half way. They give and expect nothing in return. They are consistent, they are trustworthy, they match deed to word, and they are THERE. The important thing to remember is we as humans cannot change people. But we observe and we make choices based off of that. Pray for those that cannot recognize how their behavior affects others. The important ones who truly value you and appreciate will make it known; especially before it’s too late. Life is short. Make it count…. Especially with people that matter and that love you.
In His Hands,
This is me.
The silly girl. The girl who’s energy everyone loves. The one who everyone gets along with. The girl who will cross oceans for you. The girl who makes friends instantly. The girl who loves with a passion. The girl who believes in herself and that she is beautiful. The girl that knows she deserves only the best. Beneath the makeup and behind the smile, I am just a girl who wishes for the world. (Marilyn Monroe) I don’t have the body of a supermodel. I am not quiet, calm, or reserved but I am brutally and gracefully honest. I am the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. I am the girl who has ethics and values. I am soulful and I am passionate. I have a HUGE heart for others and I love God. I love people. I just do. A lot. I fall. I rise. I make mistakes. I live. I learn. I’ve been hurt; very, very hurt, but I’m alive. I’m human and I’m not perfect. But I’m blessed and I’m thankful. Essentially, even having said this; I’m a girl that can NEVER be defined. I’m a free spirit. I’m on a journey with my work, my explorations, and a few sad stories. I travel EVERYWHERE with a suitcase full of OUTRAGEOUS blessings one of them being my amazing daughters. I’m on a quest for beauty, and quiet joy. I am an artist, a writer, an explorer. I’m not a one in a million kind of girl. I’m a once in a lifetime kind of woman. Indeed I am.
