Brave & Celebrate

This year for Christmas one of my best friends gave me a book called Let’s All Be A Little Brave: Living Life With All You Have. She bought it because she needed it and thought I might enjoy the inspiration too. As cheesy as the title sounded, I was all in for a good motivational book that may trick my mind into the YOU GO GIRL attitude. And as I suspected, I was total hyped-up I GOT THIS by the end.

Currently in a season that is more than trying, the thought of this season changing is the greatest thing I can imagine. This morning I woke up, went for a walk and the thoughts of seasons kept coming across my brain. I came back and started looking up where seasons are spoken about in the bible with the desire to blog about an overwhelming season that many people in their 20s face.
