The Happiness Trend

The Happiness Trend

Lately I have been so encouraged by the way people are choosing happiness. It seems that as our culture pushes more and more “perfectionist” ideals, more and more people are becoming aware of the big hoax that perfection truly is. Our generation is moving into a direction of choosing our happiness based on the uniqueness each of us are called to, and leaving behind the negativity that so many outsiders can flood in.

I see the Happiness Trend so much these days. Continue reading “The Happiness Trend”

St. Jude’s Rock N Roll Half Marathon

St. Jude’s Rock N Roll Half Marathon

Guys, I did it. I am now the proud owner of a light up flashing medal signifying my finish of the Nashville Rock N Roll Half Marathon! WOO WOOP! Despite the hills… and the horrid humid heat… and the constant feeling of needing to use the restroom (yep, I said it), I found a way to finish that race with a big ole smile on my face and some pretty achy legs.

At this moment I would give you a slight head tilt and a fist bump insinuating to keep on keepin on. Many days I can’t help for my heart to feel anxious or discouraged by the days ahead, but I have to remember that my God is active and is making a way. These past months at home have served a far greater purpose in my life than I could have ever thought. He is using this time to refine me by fire and to teach me about His never changing character. Many days I feel like I am in a drought when it comes to hearing from the Lord, but this past week He spoke so clearly to me through his Word and others. He corrected and encouraged me in so many of my incorrect thoughts and this is what I heard.
