Firstly, I love God, my church (Celebration), studying His word, listening to praise/worship music and deepening my relationship in and with Him. I firmly believe that no matter what life throws my way that I will always have God getting me through it, and he has even when I didn’t think He was there. I’m all about improving myself, we all have flaws and I cannot overcome the ones I have without the Holy Spirit that is within me, constant prayer (work in progress) and forgiving myself. I don’t have to be perfect, none of us do. Thanks to the one and only savior, Jesus, who came and saved us from all of our past, present and future sins and indiscretions.
I love health and nutrition. Although lately I have been slacking in that area of life. In 2010 I gave up all things cow and pig, including all dairy products. It wasn’t easy but it was the best I have ever felt. I still stay away from pork and beef but I have allowed myself to eat dairy again, although my body constantly disagrees with that decision. I still work out, about six days a week, and I love it. Not in a “I wake up every morning anxiously anticipating working out” kind of way but in the “I really don’t feel like doing this, talking myself into it and then deciding if I give it my all I can enjoy a bowl of ice cream at the end” way. It’s true what they say that working out makes you feel better. Despite how much I don’t want to work out at the beginning I’m always glad I did it in the end. At the end of the day I’ve never regretted going through a work out but I have regretted skipping one.
I love days at the beach, running, honesty, singing in the car, family, my wonderful friends, delicious food, traveling to new places, my BEST FRIEND, a glass of wine, good conversation, genuine people, movies, dancing, Greys Anatomy (so typical), reading, magazines, Florida spring/fall days, Omni Hotel in Orlando, Starbucks (duh, how unoriginal), abbreviating words in ridiculous ways, being creative (arts) and of course a cold margarita….anytime, anywhere, any size.
And of course I love all things Florida State Football, my alma mater. I love them so much so that my dislike for anything associated with “that other Florida” school is sometimes ridiculous. For example I don’t drive in the same lane as a car with the other school’s mascot on it in any way, shape or form. I bleed garnet and gold.
I wanted somewhere to put my thoughts, pictures, inspirational quotes, Bible verses. Something that perhaps my own children could look at someday and see what my thirties were like. I’m single, which I didn’t think would be the case at this point in life, but it must be part of my plan, part of what is growing me into the person that God is calling me to be. Because being in a wrong relationship for the sake of not being single is not a good reason to stay in a relationship. So with all that said, please enjoy. God Bless you all.
