Y’all can I be real with you? Fundraising has the tendency to make me cringe when it’s something I have to do. It’s not that I don’t think family & friends don’t want to support me in my ventures that are not typical to the 9-5 Monday to Friday job. Don’t get me wrong- […]Read More Fundraising : let’s be real
I wrote these questions a few days ago & thought, it would be helpful for me to answer these for myself. (Actually I had a few friends ask me these questions first. They get the credit.) But also helpful for you as well. I find that I have to check in with myself, ask myself […]Read More Q&A:: Why G42?
Disclaimer: there will be a high number of exclamation marks throughout this post. You’ve been warned. Y’all! I’ve got some exciting news to share!!! Since I received the news I’ve almost had to pinch myself because parts of me are still shocked & surprised (especially at the timing very near my birthday.) A month […]Read More A new adventure on the horizon
What makes you come alive? When in your life have you felt most alive? What do you find yourself in pursuit of time and again? What do you share? What is your life about? I don’t know if I can get this out fast enough. I was just journaling again, and it hits me- I’m […]Read More Dare to live alive
I’ve been thinking this AM how I’m still unsettled with last year. I wish I had done some of it differently. I have regrets about not opening up sooner and not pursuing vulnerability more…so on and so forth. There’s things about this year – the several months I wish I’d acted, said, responded differently. So […]Read More Regrets are healthy
I believe reflection is good. It’s good to take intentional time to see “how I’ve grown since last month, last year…” However I may have a tendency to be dramatic. I may have a tendency to not know healthy boundaries until I’ve reached the edge of healthy & now it’s unhealthy. I have done this […]Read More reflections vs. shadow dwelling
Earlier this year, I read a book about rejection & moving forward. I highly recommend the book; it’s Univited by Lysa TerKeurst. I was wondering this past weekend as I had a conversation with a new friend if I’m in a season I need to read it again. I am not a stranger to […]Read More disappointment, loneliness, rejection + how to move forward
I’ve been wanting to write a blog. I’ve been wanting to sit down and write, give y’all an update of my life. But as I sit here on this Sunday afternoon, I’m wondering why I want to write a blogpost. To be honest, I’ve been really whinny. I’ve been feeling like I’m in transition, I’ve […]Read More Can I be honest?
Y’all, can I be real with you? Do you have those moments when you’re on a walk or cleaning or cooking, or something without really thinking & God shows you a lie you’ve been believing for so long, and you realise how ridiculous it is? This morning I was out for a run/walk and […]Read More When God told me my future husband won’t be hot
07 June 2017 [Redding, California] Every so often I take a few moments and recall, “where was I a year ago and what did I journal about?” I found this nugget. It was 150 days into the wild adventure. Now since this was a year ago (which I can’t get over how crazy that is […]Read More 91 discoveries of an American traveling & living in Asia
