When things don’t go as planned


“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” —Psalm 27:14 There’s a lot in my life that happens unexpectedly. And when things don’t go as planned, I start to panic. I am a huge planner. I think making lists is insanely fun, and having every aspect of my life […]

I have a question


Why is it that whenever I go to social media, I feel insignificant afterwards? Why does it seem that, especially online, people have better, more exciting lives than I do? Why is it so hard being content? I can’t help but often feel that pang of jealousy…inadequacy…comparison stealing my joy. But perhaps this is just […]

Just being normal.


It’s okay to be normal. I’ve realized lately how much society pushes for individuality. How everyone nowadays should be different and stand out…Be a head taller (haha, never happening) and have a “thing” that they’re good at. Graduate high school with distinction and leave an impact.

The quote was a definite slap in the face and boy did I need it. It’s sad that I can always find something to worry about; whether it be about […]

Tuesdays are the days where I have smudged eyeliner from the day before, hair up in a messy bun, and where I walk around barefoot wearing these pants all day. The light in […]

Looking forward.


2012 was a year characterized by grace. Lots and lots of grace. When January came and went, I had written briefly about the new year but never fully expanded on it. I feel as though March is an awkward month for writing these types of things— too late for a list of New Year resolutions, […]

real life.


It’s rather alarming how quickly this winter is going by, but I can’t necessarily say that I’ll be disappointed when this season is over. The cold nights and early sun sets have never been things I particularly have ever longed for. My heart can’t wait for the days to return where I can go bare […]
