More photos of a great fun night with wonderful people. Family doesn’t have to be blood related. I moved out of my parents’ home to this small town (was small) knowing only one person. I needed to be able to stand on my own two feet so that no matter what happens, I’ll be ok. The first few years were a huge struggle but I kept my head up and marched forward. I didn’t like asking for help, didn’t like feeling like I needed anyone. I chose to struggle alone. There were days I didn’t get out of bed and just cried until I fell asleep. Some days I was so scared to be alone by myself. I never stopped searching for answers to my questions though. One day at a time. I studied psychology, I should know how to fix myself, right? Theories after theories, not getting much answer to my life questions. Being raised very religious, I had enough guilt and shame to last me 100 lifetimes. The answers religious leaders gave me weren’t sufficient, they made me feel powerless. Like I’m a victim of life or something. Just a puppet in this game of life. I needed to experience that though.
I want you to know that there are no obstacles or challenges you can’t overcome. If they’re in your experience, then you’re strong enough and wise enough to overcome them. We are co-creators of our own lives. If only you knew how involved each of you is in the creation of your life experiences- every encounter, every event. Knowing this changed everything for me and my family. Soul journey is fascinating! I’m now closer to my Creator than ever. I no longer have a love-hate relationship with this city. It’s the place I grew to be the person I am today, where I found myself, and created the life that I want for myself and hubby.
I encountered so many incredible souls who naturally have become my extended family.
These days I still cry, but they’re tears of joy and gratitude. I honestly cry when I think about the amazing people in my life.
And I want nothing more than for everyone to experience the bliss and happiness I’m feeling.
Remember why you came here. Remember your purpose and your life will never be the same again. You will see the world through different lenses. Much love and gratitude. ♥️
I never used to voice my opinion and express myself. I used to go along with what everyone else was doing so I wouldn't stand out and draw too much attention to myself. I loved to express myself through fashion because I didn't need to speak up and use my voice. I enjoyed shopping at boutiques and different stores (and I still do lol) to find unique accessories/clothing and I would stand out that way.
Well throughout our wedding planning process this completely changed. For the first time I voiced what I wanted and I can honestly say it was the best day ever because everything embodied our vision and we will cherish all the amazing memories forever. I knew that this was not a time to follow along with what others told us we should do and it was the time to step out of my comfort zone and truly express what we wanted even though it felt scary and strange because I wasn't used to it.
I am honored to teach brides the tools that helped me find my voice so I could create the wedding that was far beyond anything I could have ever imagined so that they can do the same. It is the coolest thing to witness aha moments and be able to help brides plan their wedding without settling! If you desire guidance and support with planning your wedding send me a message. I would be honored to help you! 👰🏼❤️✨
I love to write, and that’s not much of a secret! I’ve often reflected on why I’m so drawn to a pen, and for me, I think it’s probably the freedom factor. There’s an incredible amount of liberty that is felt when words can flow like water, knowing that the intention they carry is enough to usher them into the places that I myself can’t reach. I like that I can write something that’s from my heart and that God can be honored through it. I like that each time I write, my thoughts become tangible. They are born and have life, and are born again each time they are read. It’s a natural cycle that is so very personal and familiar, and also, not mine at all. After all, I know that every good and perfect thing comes from above. (James 1:17)
But mostly, I love how when I write I can be a part of the beautiful process of preservation. The Scriptures are the most cherished representation of all that we trust in, the very base for which our faith was born and it was written by men who were sensitive to the prodding of the Holy Spirit and the voice of God. These faithful Scribes saw fit to write what was God-breathed and revealed to them, and in doing so they produced an eternal momentum that would never lose its focus and aim- to lovingly disclose the genuine love of God for His people and draw us closer to His Heart!
As my desire to know the Lord grows, so does my desire to write. What desires grow within your heart?
The Throat chakra is the fifth chakra. Located at the center of the neck at the level of the throat, it is the passage of the energy between the lower parts of the body and the head. The function of the Throat chakra is driven by the principle of expression and communication. 💙
