When You Struggle To Find Your Niche

There are some high school graduates that walk off the stage, diploma in hand, knowing exactly what they want to do with their life. They enter college, declare their major, and go on to have the successful career of which they dreamed. That was not me. There are some bloggers who start a blog knowing exactly what they want to blog about and they go on to have the successful blog of which they dreamed. That was not me either. Join me over at Allume today where I share about my … [Read more...]

Quiet

I am feeling very quiet these days. Introspective. Contemplative. I am a person that very much needs to have a strong grasp on the who and the why. Who I am and why is it that I do the things I do? When life brings major changes as it has for me these past few months, I often feel the need to retreat, to pull back so that I can think and evaluate and make sure that I am not losing myself and sight of my priorities amidst the change. Right now, I don't feel that I have much to … [Read more...]

When You Feel Like a Wannabe

For me, blogging has been a lot like running. Three years ago, I gazed out the window of my computer screen and saw the bloggers passing by, and thought, I want to be one of them. I started a little blog and began writing about this and that, trying to find my voice and figure out who I was as a blogger and a writer. Head down, I kept to myself, quietly tapping away at the keys. I slowly gained confidence and began venturing out of my little blogging neighborhood to join the real bloggers … [Read more...]

Know Yourself, Accept Yourself

As we leave the portion of this series focused on self-care, I would now like to spend the next few days talking about living with intentional and grace as it relates to personal growth. This past spring, I became good friends with Jen at our local home improvement store. Maybe not so much friends as I kind of stalked her. You see, this year I was bound and determined to have an amazing vegetable garden and she had the knowledge that I needed. I would march into the garden center armed … [Read more...]

Settling In

Every time I walk into my hair salon, I am armed with no less than five pictures. I prop them up against the mirror and tell my stylist to work her magic. She will do her best to tame the curly mop on my head, and with a lot of work, I can usually make it resemble the pictures for a couple of weeks. Then I get lazy and it goes back to being what it always has been. Big, blonde, and curly. It’s just me. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be someone else. As a teenager and on … [Read more...]

What Exactly Does a Godly Woman Look Like?

For as long as I can remember, I have prayed "Lord, make me into the woman that you want me to be." And for as long as I can remember, I have tried to make myself into the woman that I thought the Lord wanted me to be. And for as long as I can remember, I have felt like a failure at being the woman that He wants me to be. And I have recently figured out why that is. This "godly woman" image that I had in my head, wasn't based on the the Word of God as much as it was based on the … [Read more...]

Finding Your Identity as a Mother

In high school, most teens go through an identity crisis of sorts, and try out the different cliques until they find the best fit. There's the jocks, the preps, Goths, and skaters to name a few. Just about the time they get it figured out, they encounter a whole new set of stereotypes in college...the political activists, the philosophers, the party crowd, the hippies. Usually by the time a person finishes college and enters the workforce, they have a decent grasp of who they are. Then they … [Read more...]
