We Were Meant to be Courageous

  So I kind of went on a picture taking frenzy last night.. I felt pretty and I was bored.. and y'all have to suffer the consequences lol.

New shirt!

I love my eyes. They change colors!

I love how my eyes look edited.. but really this is just how they are naturally. 

  On Saturday I stepped out of my comfort zone. I hung-out with a friend that I hadn't seen since the beginning of April.. at the end of April we had a falling out. Everything was mended (as much as you can when you really hurt someone..) in November, but this was the first chance we had gotten to see each other. Let me tell you.. it was hard.

  I had been a royal jerk to this girl. she'd written me some notes and written down two of our last conversations(Texting), which she gave to me on Saturday.. I didn't realize how horrible I was to her until that point. Reading the stuff I said to her.. made me tear up. Now, regardless of my reasons ( I did have them) I could have handled things in a much less painful way.

  Seeing her on Saturday too courage. Not because I was afraid she wouldn't like me anymore or something.. but because I don't ever want to hurt anyone like that again.. by spending time with her.. I opened up the doors for me to mess up. Heres the thing.. courage doesn't mean we aren't afraid.. it means that we walk through our fear because we trust that the results are worth it. Or simply because it's the right thing to do.

  Have you had to have courage recently?




  1. courage isn't the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. -princess diaries

    i love this. especially because my word for the year is courage. and i know almost exactly how you feel. but as long as you are trusting in God and allowing Him to speak into your life, you will have all the courage you need and all the right words too. :)

    1. LOVE that movie.

      You're right, thank you:)

  2. I suppose that finding out recently that my grandmother has cancer would count as courage in my life right now. Hope that everything works out well with your friend.


    1. Oh wow.. I'll keep her and your family in my prayers.

  3. I admire the fact you spent time with her to try and open the door of friendship again. It takes courage to admit we were wrong or did things wrong but fixing it is the best thing to do.

    Also, where did you get that shirt?

    1. It hasn't been easy. I'll be worth it in the long run though.

      I got it from someone on Etsy. I sent her the quotes I wanted and she made the shirts. I got two.


Jesus loves you & I do too!
Be blessed, but also be a blessing.
