I can say that I am a christian. I recently started to put God above everything else in my life. It’s a daily struggle because let me tell you this world is full of so many temptations. You don’t really notice it when your eyes are closed but when you start trying to live by the word of God and your eyes start opening all the stuff that you once thought was right or the things that you do on a daily basis you realize that God doesn’t want you to live like this. Every decision you make, you make it with God in first. You think about all the things in life. Your future becomes so much clearer and also you feel like a huge weight is slowly being lifted off your shoulder. For me personal the change has been that I have become so much more humble, less vengeful or not angry all the time. But it’s not easy it’s hard just stepping back and praying for someone. Normally I would just get into a huge argument and say some hurtful stuff and try to get my “revenge” on whoever but nope no more. I have so much still to change in my life. I am still attached to a lot of stuff that isn’t christian like but I know soon certain things I am attached to won’t even matter anymore. I hope this makes sense for whoever reads my blog it’s 3:15AM lol not really awake right now. I just felt like writing a blog post while listening to Group 1 Crew check them out on Spotify they are amazing. Okay until tomorrow well Sunday I mean or later today if I am inspired 🙂

Personality can’t be photoshopped
In life we tend to just look at what we have in front of us and not look beyond. I believe we are dreamers but we tend to only just dream and not act. We look at what other people are doing in their lives and how they are fulfilling their dream but instead of us going out and pursing our dream and/or looking beyond our obstacles we sit at home just imagining what if. I love the chorus in the song Nothing ever happens by Rachel Platten. It’s so simple yet you get the point you need to look beyond everything.
But nothing ever happens if you stay in your room
Nothing ever happens if you leave the party too soon
Never be a winner if you’re not in the game
And nothing ever happens if you always play it safe
Make a little space and get out of your own way.
In life even if you are unsure of your future or you want to do something but you are afraid because you can’t see the outcome. Don’t worry God has your back. If it is something that is dear to your heart and this is your passion, go for it only you can stop you. Don’t believe that lie that what you see is what you get because it is not so. It’s the unforeseen and unplanned things that shock you the most Even if you might not have all the resources to fulfill your dreams still go after it. A small start goes a long way. We are all destined for greatness. God has placed each and everyone on of us for a reason. Don’t feel down and out when something you want to do doesn’t work out instead get back up and start all over again. God is a god of multiple chances.
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”- 2 Corinthians 2:18
I decided to write this on my wrist because yesterday was the day to raise awareness for the prevention of suicide. I wrote on my wrist because this particular place is the one part of the body that many girls cut. In today’s society it is hard with all the images and all the expectations of who we are suppose to be and look as young girls and women. We just have to remember that we are all loved if not by a bunch of people we are loved my at least one person and to me that is enough. We as young girls and women have to be advocates for broken young girls and women who feel like they aren’t good enough. We have to remind them that they are important. We have to do this everyday not just one day a year. So just remember “To Write Love on Her Arms” and show her that you care and love her.
