Embracing the Fear

4th December 2013 | 0 Comments

I would never be so bold as to say I’m brave. There are many situations/choices I have tackled with bravery or with a mindset to overcome my fear, but for each of those things there is something or someone I have approached with blind fear. Sometimes these situations are instantaneous situations that are over in […]

Sometimes God blesses us. Sometimes He blesses us so much it’s overwhelming and awe inspiring. My life right now is in one of those times. Please enjoy this link. I know I sure am 🙂

Brandi, Can I Ask You….?

I have come across a lot of things in my life thus far that I felt I definitely was made to do. Things that I was meant for. Things that I have mastered either all at once, or slowly over time. In contrast, there are also many things in this life that I feel I’m ill-equipped […]

I can’t remember a time in my life where my inner being didn’t shy away from this word. I’m unsure if it’s the strength in the word or the culture I was brought up in’s definition of the word that makes me so uneasy with it. I’m sure it’s probably a combination of a lot […]

In September I quite literally broke up with my eating disorder. It was such a weird and yet empowering move on my part I wasn’t quite sure what would actually happen so I just took it one day at a time. I am proud to say that while it’s not been easy, I have successfully […]

A Goodbye Letter

30th September 2012 | 0 Comments

For over ten years I  have struggled, and after a long week and the nagging challenge from those that love me in the back of my mind I decided it was time to say goodbye. It took a large glass of wine, and a lot of crying, but here it is- A break-up letter to […]

Did You Know He Loved You

I didn’t. I’m unsure of the why’s and how’s or even the when’s of it. But slowly, over time I’m sure, I lost my grip on my belief that I was lovable. Somewhere between believing I could be a princess or the president and getting my driver’s license, the knowledge that I was a person […]

Freedom in Imperfection

One thing I’ve been working on recently has been telling the difference between excellence and perfection. To call myself an anal-retentive, relentless over achieving perfectionist would be putting it lightly. That quality can be really great sometimes. It pushes a person to strive always to do their best. The problem comes when ‘their best’ isn’t […]
