Looking up to Christ🙌
The Lord has blessed my life in so many ways. If I listed everything he has done, this post would be so long. I thank Him everyday for everything he has given me and for all of the unanswered prayers. Sometimes we pray for things and He knows that isn't what we need. Other times he makes us wait for it a little bit.
After my son was born, a lot of the friends my husband and I had drifted away from us. They weren't parents yet so I guess they just didn't understand. I prayed for 2.5 years for God to bring me some mom friends. Y'all. TWO AND A HALF YEARS! My only real friends where my husband and my mom. Thank God I had them or I would have went insane. Finally mid pregnancy with Cora He slowly started putting people in my life. We found a new church and friendships started to form. Some are still flourishing while others aren't. But I am 100% okay with that. Some people are meant to in our lives for seasons or reasons. Don't hold onto those people, hang on to the ones that are here for the long haul. I am so thankful to those few mom friends that I have now. Y'all are the cream of the crop💕
Last night I did something that I've always wanted to do...I went camping by myself!! (with dogs, of course!) We headed up the coast to Lime Kiln campground and it was just as perfect as could be. The campground hosts were super nice and we got a terrific spot. I felt safe and not nervous at all!
It was Monkey and Banana's first time camping so they were a little bit freaked out but they were wonderful camping companions and I believe they thoroughly enjoyed themselves! They both vomited on the way up and the way back (road to Big Sur is cuuuuurvy!) We saw a spectacular sunset, huge redwood trees, elephant seals, zebras, and lots of poison oak! I loved it and I can't wait to do it again!

Some crispy candids.
Looking back at last weekend finishing the last 4.5 miles barefoot, with 2 broken toes and a stress fracture in my left foot. With a right knee that began to give out and spasm at mile 9, i am floored and immensely grateful.
In the words of Goggins “the feeling that you’re completely tapped out, actually comes when you’re only 40% done; you still have 60% left in the tank.” Don’t be the person who lives and never experiences that 60% and power it has.
At mile 21 EMS told me “it’s not advisable for you to finish with your existing injuries, we are calling you a transport.” And there’s a choice that follows simple and clean.
1- concede. Take your broken bones home to a cold beer and nachos where you can stretch and relax the legs that carried you 6 miles further than they ever had before. Be happy with setting a new PR In other words: Fail, and go home knowing you left 60% on the table, broken or not.
2- respectfully say “fuck your transport” and carry the fucking boat barefoot, bloody, and broken head on into hell not knowing what’ll break next.
It felt as if, God taught me more in those 7 hours than the past 22 years. All while bringing me closer to my brother than ever before. And for that, I am beyond grateful.
Remember to live in the 60%. #blessed #ontothenextone
This #orchid loves me. It just keeps brightening up my office window! #blessed
There was this part in her heart that can't let go, that tiny little light that continuous to thrive. She makes herself believe that she moved on, that she's happier now that he is gone. She wakes up each morning exhausting herself to work, and on days without work she travelled far to forget. It was tough, at night there was this gnawing pain in her heart that makes her feel worthless and on days, she needed to put on her positive game face. She's fooling everyone but not herself. She's not living, merely surviving because she does know that nothing can fill the void in her heart.
THAT WAS THEN.
Years have passed and now she isnt fooling herself anymore. She works not to keep her mind busy, to not think about him but to achieve her dreams, she travel not to forget but bec. she wanted to enjoy her life more. At night she can sleep worry free and her days Ahh, her days are blessed, with people she loves, with the abundant provisitions and grace of GOD, even in the daily mundane things she finds happiness and the mediocre life she once live now seems to be exciting and fulfilling. And this happened when she accepted and found GOD.
Now the void has been filled and her heart has been healed. .
In the same way I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord.-ISAIAH 66:9

Se queres a paz, comece com o perdão! O pior peso que alguém pode carregar é o da consciência! 🙏
Perdõe, peça perdão, e se perdõe... Independente de quem errou, faça por você... ♻️
