Today I said goodbye to a place that has been almost a second home to me for seven years now. When I was eleven, we started sacking groceries for our local food pantry, we slowly moved up to where our family was running the pantry one day a week. I have more memory's attached to this place then most other places in my life. So many tears, so much laugher, so much growth. Shepard's Heart has been a huge blessing to me. It is always bittersweet when God calls me to move on from something, but I know He's got something amazing waiting for me.
This is me. I didn't want to work today. My hairs a mess. I snapped a lot. I watched to much Tv. I'm behind on all my goals. I cheated on my youtube fast. I got very jelous of people who had thriving blogs. I ate lots of junk. I yelled a lot. Today, by all standards, I failed. But failure is something I do, not who I am. I have failed, but I am not a failure. Tomorrow I will wake up and try again. I will tackle my goals. I will mess up, I know, but I have to try. Every day, I've got to try. Because God's got something better then this waiting, and I will strive towards it till my final breath. I refuse to stop fighting because of setbacks. This is me. I have failed. But I refuse to stop fighting.
So I'm back after a week long break! It was probably the best thing I've done for myself in a long time. I realized how overly attached I had gotten to Instagram. I spent the week reaveluating the time I spend on social media, and in the process stumbled on a gem by @abbieeofficial called They don't Care on her YouTube channel. This week I also got to go to the Zoo, L.B.J's presidential library, write a lot and spend a lot of time with my family.
Happy Valintines day everybody!! I hope you had a fantastic day! I got to babysit this morning, had my first ever choaclae strawberry, then worked on last minute valintines for my family. Now I'm going to pick up some book deals. Lol, I love bookish valintines! ;) After tonight I'm going to be taking a break from Instagram for about a week. I am going to miss all y'alls fun story's, but have fun!!
This is me. A bit tierd. Just a bit stressed. I've been working on planning out stuff for my blog most of the day. I'd forgotten how much work it took to mass plan blogging!
Today I fixed a dress for a Saint Patrick's day wedding I'm attending, had to pack up some of my books because they were overflowing, and now I'm trying to finish up a story I started for NaNo. =)
I've got a tiny one inch pot growing lemon balm in my room and it makes me so happy! 😊
I got to shop for shoes with my sister today! I got these for my cousins wedding next month. =) what did you do today?
Painted over at a neighbors house with my brother today. Yes, he's the one who put paint on our faces. And he's also the one smearing more pain on my hand here. But we finished the room!! 😂 #ilovemybrother
Happy birthday to one of the sweetest girls I know! Allison has been my neighbor and friend for ten years now. Allison, thank you so much for all the neighborly help, all the movie partys, and the late night laser tag games. I'm going to miss you when you move, girl. Happy birthday! I pray God blesses this next year beyond your biggest dreams!
