Long Overdue

There are quite a few reasons as to why I haven’t posted anything in some time. Namely, I have been too utterly entwined in happiness. You read that correctly. I’m blissful. Who knew?!

Well, maybe somewhere swimming amidst all my thoughts of recovery, future plans, education, transportation, work relations, and medications, I think there may’ve lingered an inkling of certainty I’d find this happiness. Maybe I knew that by continuing to dive and swim through my stream of consciousness I’d eventually find land. Maybe I knew I’d find love.

Or maybe God knew, and I just treaded water until he found that I was ready.

Regardless, I’m here.

Regardless, I’m changed.

I’m still seeking to be the voice for those who feel they can’t speak of their flaws or of their woes. I’m living proof that things get better.

You find beauty.

Beauty finds you.

You are beauty: consistently redefining and reestablishing your physical identity with each step and each word.

You find that beauty gets dirty, and beauty gets confusing, but at the end of the day, you find that beauty exists in that moment in which you’re not hiding anymore. Beauty exists once you realize life no longer has to be a struggle.

Beauty exists as you exist.

    In the early 20th century, while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told and he called it “The Hero’s Journey.” A truly inspirational film, FINDING JOE takes us on the ultimate hero’s journey: the journey of self discovery. Using the mythological teachings of Joseph Campbell, and interviews with visionaries, the film inspires us all to discover our passions and purpose. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think. This life changing film is now available on DVD and iTunes.

    Featuring: Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Tony Hawk, Rashida Jones, Laird Hamilton, Robert Walter, Robin Sharma, Catherine Hardwicke, Sir Ken Robinson, Akiva Goldsman and many more.

    Thank you so much for your honesty! I have and am struggling, and hearing that someone else has been there and now feels free to own and TALK about it is beyond encouraging. I am learning to find my beauty in Christ, and in addition learning to be patient with His timing. Thank you again, and please keep telling your story for His glory!
