My Favorite Quote | Life is What You Make of It | Blogtember Day 21

Monday, Sept. 21:Β A favorite quote/expression and how it has impacted you. Today’s prompt is an easy one for me because I have always had a favorite quote that I sort of lived my life by. Life is what you make of it. This has always been something that has been very encouraging to me because like I’ve mentioned before, I haven’t had the easiest life growing up. I come from a pretty broken family (my dad is an alcoholic and  ...

My Desire For This Space

Hi friends. I’m currently working on having a more regular posting schedule but it’s been hard because as of right now I just write when I have something to write about. Setting up a schedule means that I will have to intentionally know what I want to write about in advance. It won’t be as sporadic and I would need real “topics” to write on. As of right now all I post about really is my relationship with Jesus  ...

You Have Already Arrived

Do you ever catch yourself wishing your life away? Not in a way where you wish your life was over, but in a way where you aren’t content with what life has given you now? Maybe it’s by always wanting the “new things” the world has to offer. A newer car. A newer phone. The latest fashion. Or maybe it’s not materialistic at all. Maybe you’re wishing for that next step of your relationship to finally happen.  ...

Why Marriage Is Not The Happily Ever After We Thought It Was

Now I’m not married or even engaged for that matter so I’m not sure if I’m truly qualified to even write this post but I’m going to attempt it anyway. It’s obvious based off my other posts that Tommy and I are pretty serious and that we even have been talking about getting married a lot lately. We both know that we want to marry each other, it’s just a matter of time and letting the details work themselves  ...

Something I’m learning (The Hard Way Of Course)

Spending time by myself. For some reason lately I’ve forgotten that I need to spend time alone. I forgot the joys of having absolutely no commitments and just relaxing. Of watching a funny TV show or going for a random drive by myself. I forgot that this is what gives life to me. You see, I’m an introvert in the truest sense of the word. IΒ crave time alone to process my thoughts and check my heart and desires. I’m realizing  ...

WritingReading&MyDirtBike | Blog-tember Day 4 |

Today’s prompt from Blog-tember is: What are you passionate about? Honestly this is something I am just learning how to answer. For a long time I felt like I didn’t really have all that many passions or hobbies. I actually decided one day to pray about this and ask God to help me find some hobbies cause I felt funny not really knowing what I enjoyed doing. I felt like I was too busy stressing about something silly during my free  ...

My Ideal Day // Blog-tember Challenge Day 2

So just to keep you guys updated, I got back from the Bahamas Monday night at 12:30 pm and it was THE BEST vacation ever. It was so fun and I can’t wait to write a post about it but until then I’m linking up with Bailey Jean at Brave Love BlogΒ and attempting to blog every day in the month of September (long shot I think but still worth a try). Today’s topic is Your Ideal Day. This post couldn’t have come at a better  ...
