Time. When having goals and callings, we think we can create timelines of when they'll be accomplished. We can work, we can pray, we can try to manifest all of our desires, but at the end of the day, it's all up to Him. I tend to get frustrated or impatient when I think God … Continue reading There Is Light.
I cannot believe that 2017 is almost over! Fall is my favorite season of the year; a time where the temps drop, pumpkin spice is a staple, and sweaters are worn every day. It's also a season, where the pace of life tends to slow down a little bit before the holidays. I've been going … Continue reading Slow Down.
Today, my head is full of a million and one thoughts, and I'm sure I'll share them at a later time and place. This post is going to be simple, short, and sweet. Be kind to one another.

Today was not a typical Monday. I mean, I still got up, went to work, came home and made my own dinner. Nothing extraordinary happened.

I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "It's all in your head." And it's so very true. My days are either wonderful or horrible, depending on whether or not my head is in a good mental space.

The temperatures in Nashville have been scorching this week, never leaving the high-nineties. As a runner, who typically trains outside, this has caused an issue. I've either had to alter my mornings, and squeeze my runs in before work, or suffer in the heat afterwards. And, let's just be utterly honest; getting up any earlier … Continue reading Time to Get Uncomfortable
Bravery. Once small word can depict so many stories. This word can mean so many different things to different people.
