present minded

Who knew this time in life would be as it is, would you care for me to elaborate? Great, I thought you’d never ask. It’s crazy, this thing we like to call life – all it’s ups and downs, the moments of pure boredom to how did I get myself into this? I would like…

Mistrust, misuse of information.

When you allow someone into your safe place and then they use what you have shared with them against you. I’ve always learned not to hold things against people or carry a list of wrongs but what if that one person who taught you all of this does these things to a fault? This morning I woke up with this heaviness on my heart – mistrust, misuse of the information. I’m not sure if you’ve encountered these same experiences but as an adult they are much easier to navigate but much harder to explain. As a child, I’d felt hurt…

When You Feel on Top of the World

Do you ever have that feeling, you know the one where you feel indestructible and as if there is no one that rob or steal the joy you’re experiencing in this very top of the world feeling? Well, as I sit here and think about a handful of those experiences I’m reminded of my humanity…

This morning I woke up a little conflicted. I’m not sure about you but I’ve struggled with the title my faith brings me. Yes, I am a Christian and I love the Lord and every day I try to love and lead a life like Jesus would BUT someone once told me… “Jess, you aren’t Jesus,” and I’ve realized that they’re right! Those of you who know me, I am pretty wound tight, I try do everything by the book, I play by the rules, but is that really living? I know there are principles to live by: our morals…

Overthinking, letting go – breath.

As I sit here contemplating what to write, I realize, “there I go overthinking again!” This last year has been quite the roller coaster of events but then again so is most every year if you ask me. One thing that I think I’m learning about the most is letting go. Not just saying I’m letting go, but actually, consciously following through – letting my actions speak louder than my words. A lot of things we say are easier said than done though – and I’ve found myself over the years falling deeper into that trap. They always say a…
