Spiral…

“Sometimes on this journey,
I get lost in my own mistakes.
But, my story isn’t over,
my story’s just begun.”

Can you hear me?
I’m spiraling.
Help!

Where am I?
I’m stuck in my thoughts.
Help!

When will this end?
I’m tired of always fighting.
Help!

Is anyone out there?
I’m begging to be free.
Help!


I feel like I’m:

Loosing myself
Brewing in self hatred
Swallowing with guilt
Thinking too much
Breaking everything I touch
Talking down to myself
Coping with the pain wrongly
Trying to change myself
Feeling like giving up
Dwelling on my past
Building my walls up higher
Learning to trust no one


God, I’m drowing
Deeper and deeper
Will you release me from this spiral?

My thoughts & emotions
Have taken over
Can you get them back?

God, I need you
And your amazing love
Will you help me?

I’ve lost the will to fight
I feel like giving up
Will you free me from this pain?

God, I need you
To remind me of your presence
Can you show me your love?


With God, I feel like I’m:

Winning back myself
Brewing in His love
Swallowing with ease
Thinking to gain wisdom
Breaking down walls
Talking about the truth
Swearing to never go back
Striving to be better
Feeling His love
Dwelling in His presence
Building friendships
Learning to trust again


Thanks for reading!
I hope this reminded you that you can always call out to God in difficult times,
& He will always listen and help you because:

YOU NEVER HAVE TO DO ANYTHING ALONE!

She had no idea…


That girl in the picture
Standing there
Smilling through the pain
Just living life

That girl in the picture
She never could’ve
Known or imagined
What was coming

That girl in the picure
Looking at the world
Blind to the future
She had no idea

That girl in the picture
She couldn’t even
Begin to prepare
For this!


Seriously!

How could she know?
How could she prepare?
How could she see?

She didn’t have a map –
Or a to-do list.
She just needed time.


Time is the key
Everything unfolds so quickly

Time to remember & forget
And, process it all

That girl in the picture
Wasn’t ready for this

So, give her time!


Thanks for reading!
I hope this poem inspired you to slow down & give yourself time to take a moment to enjoy life!

Be patient, enjoy life, &
trust His perfect timing!

P.S. The featured picture on this post was the inspiration for this poem because when looking at it, I was reminded of who I was in that moment, & I realized how different I used to be.
It reminded me to be kind to myself because we all need time to process through life.

A new chapter!

Update on this blog, and my life:
A new chapter is starting very soon (Dec. 5)!

. . . 

I am “moving” to Argentina! 
I say: “moving” because I will be living there for a minimum of 3 months (possibly, longer).
And, although I’m nervous and a little sad (as this will be my first Christmas away from home); I’m also super excited because I have no idea what amazing things this next chapter will bring.
These mixed emotions inspired the following poem:


Remember, that:
Good things never come,
from comfort zones!

You can’t,
and you shouldn’t,
hide from fear!

You should;
Step out and,
face your fears!

Do all –
those things –
that scare you!

Live your life,
to the fullest and, 
never let fears take over!

You can do so much,
more than you think!
All you have to do is… 

…Seek discomfort! And, 
step out of your comfort zone because
you will see amazing things happen in your life!


Thanks for reading!

P.S. I will be blogging about my experience, and adventures as much as I can,
so, I hope you will join me in this new chapter,
and live these adventures with me through my posts!

P.P.S. My future posts will probably not be as consistent,
so, if you don’t want to wait for a post,
follow me on Instagram for more real-time updates!
