Please Cancel my Subscription to your Issues

      I saw this quote the other day and it made me laugh...but then it got me thinking. How often do we subscribe to other peoples problems? We allow others to soak up our days, complaining about their lives and issues. I get that it's easy to subscribe to things. We subscribe to newsletters in our emails, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, but what about those subscriptions that we'd rather cancel? We can easily make the choice to cancel Netflix to save money, so why can't we cancel subscriptions to the things that leave us feeling empty? I know it's hard to pick friends who only lift you up. I find myself making excuses for people like "Well, she's...

I'm not a real mom

      "There is something about a girl who dates a guy who has kids." I've heard this saying for years and years now. It's not for everyone. Some people literally avoid it, by not dating people who have kids. Some people judge because of it. It's a choice, and not an easy one I might add. I can imagine that single parents want someone they date to love their kids unconditionally and that may be hard for some people, but not for me. Yes, parenting is hard, especially when you're not the parent. It's even harder when the kids don't see you as a parent figure in their life. I had someone recently say I'm "just the girlfriend."...

You're Not Alone

    There's this song on Christian radio right now that I adore. Every time I hear it, it fills me up in ways I can't explain. Do you ever hear a song and just know that it's exactly what you needed to hear? I get chill bumps. In the song the lyrics it says "you're never alone." Sometimes that's the only thing you need to hear. It's amazing what three little words can do for your mood. Life is tough. We're all struggling in different ways. Some financially, some with body image, some with being over weight, some with divorce, some with anxiety. The list goes on and on. I personally struggle with feeling like I am unable to...

Growth

      My word of the year for 2108 is GROWTH. It's now April and I'm full-on wondering how the heck we got here so fast. When I started to write my intentions for the year, I had a list a mile long of things I wanted to accomplish and then I realized that I needed to be realistic when it came to my goals. It's nice to have a million goals but it's not practical to think you can accomplish all of them in the time that you want. God has a plan that's much much different than ours. We can plan our little hearts out but some things are just going to change in life. Either it's...

Happy Holi Festival

Have you guys ever heard of the Happy Holi Festival? I hadn't either until today. I opened up my canva app to make a graphic for social media and there it was, tons of images full of bright colors and the Holi Festival. Ps, if you don't already use Canva, you're missing out. It's a free graphic template app/ website and it's amazing! If you're not already using it, you should get on it. I use it to create almost all of my graphics for social media. The Holi Festival is a Hindu spring festival known as the "festival of colors." There are so many incredible things that this festival signifies, here are a few. -Victory of good over evil...
