My Intent

I've been wanting to set up a blog for a long time now. A place to share my thoughts and experiences. I am a 31 year-old woman who has been given the gift of a few difficult years. Because of this, I have grown in unimaginable ways and I'm loving myself more, each and every day. I find joy in things I didn't notice before, value myself in ways I never knew possible, and I'm continuing my journey of surrounding myself with positive, supportive, loving friends and family. It's interesting that as you get older (and wiser perhaps?!?), your Circle of Friends get SMALLER, but STRONGER. Amen to that! I had the wonderful opportunity to attend AWAKE at Overlake Christian Church this weekend (thank you JODIE!). I was once again reminded that God loves and excepts us unconditionally in our times of struggle and need. I'm learning to extend that same generosity to myself. I look forward to sharing little tidbits about my life and journey of self-discovery and learning to unconditionally love myself, like other's do so freely.
