It's His Path

It's His Path

Two roads diverged in the wood, and I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.~ Robert Frost

At the age of 19, she ran away. For the record, she didn’t run away.

GIFT

GIFT

During this season I get so excited about twinkling lights, gifts, parties, and people. I try so hard not to stress about it but just to enjoy all the goodness. I was reminded yesterday, once again, that there is one gift that stands above the rest…the one that matters most.

Cozy Home- My Favorite Things 2018

Remember that giving a gift is giving a person a piece of your heart.  The stress and anxiety that we have affiliated with this process are unnecessary and should be reevaluated. The act of giving is an expression of love….that’s why I chose COZY HOME for this years theme.

Release

Release

I’m simply stating that my failure to properly release and let go of the things weighing heavy on my heart culminated in a day of pure sadness and the recognition that I have to sit in silence instead of filling myself with needless noise. I have needed to feel what I actually feel so that I’m not just surviving, I’m living.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

When any one of us holds on to bitterness and anger, for ourselves, or those around us, it is paralysing and very one dimensional.  It creates a toxic atmosphere that can only be articulated and viewed by a singular being.

Un-Moldable

The fact that we are so connected today has benefits for sure, but there is also a potential for disastrous effects on how it makes susceptible people feel. So many people are suffering silently, and that needs to change.

Blue Folder

Blue Folder

While cleaning out my storage room this weekend I came across an old blue folder. I knew exactly what it was when I saw it.  Within that cheap, tattered folder is so much of my story. Inside of it were the inner ramblings of a fourteen to seventeen year old girl. I got a cup of coffee, went up to my room, and decided I would go back in time, so I started reading.

The Chalice

The Chalice

It was like I thought that I had the chalice so I could speak to anyone who would listen. Preach sister, preach, and they would all listen. UHM NO, they were not all listening because they never asked me to talk in the first place.

Pieces

Pieces

We need dialogue.  We need to stop faking it.  We need to get real with ourselves and with those in our lives.  I feel like I shout this from the rooftops but we truly need to love better.  Harder. More intentionally. Deeper. With purpose.

Dear Daughter

Dear Daughter

I knew what love was when I first laid eyes on you, but I didn’t know the magnigude and depth a heart could feel in one single instant. When you were a baby I couldn’t even imagine you as an adult. I didn’t want to because I was savoring every single moment with you.. You were a perfect little angel and everyday was filled with your firsts. I’m so grateful that I got to witness each one of them. You are a lady now, and you’ll keep spreading your wings. I’m quite certain that there will be many firsts to come in the next few years…I may not be there, physically, for all of them, which I look at with both sadness and pride.  I do know, however, that you will do great things my love.
