One of the last photos I took w long hair. I can’t tell you wether or not I regret cutting it. All I know is that I’m fairly positive what I did was a good thing. I hid behind my hair a LOT. My back, my face.. it all. I was not comfortable with myself at all.
I did not just chop my hair off. I chopped off the years of tears I released regarding what I always thought of myself. I still battle myself daily, and it gets really rough sometimes don’t get me wrong, but we’re getting there. I wouldn’t still be fighting today if it weren’t for some of my closest friends. You know who you are. Anyway, check in is over. Love you all.

So I absolutely meant to make this post yesterday, but forgot because I feel like lately I’m never not busy. Now this can be overwhelming at times, sure. I am, however, grateful for the busy. I’m a doer, so keeping busy with friends, family and work is how I find peace and happiness most of the time. But I have to remind myself that sometimes my soul needs calm and rest. As much as my mind tells me to keep busy and never say no, I still keep doing. Because of this, one of my biggest resolutions going into this new year is to take time to slow down and actually enjoy the present in new and exciting ways. I will still keep doing (our wedding won’t plan itself, no matter how much I will it to haha), I just need to remember I’m a human being. Which means, I have faults and sometimes I overcommit myself or fall short of my perfect expectations. Maybe I take a risk or go on a new adventure that’s out of my comfort zone. The possibilities are infinite and that’s comforting. And I can’t wait to take the biggest next step of my life this next year with the man my sweet Lord designed just for me. Just next Christmas, we’ll be celebrating nearly two months being married. I’m hopeful for what this next year will bring and for seeing how God reveals this story that He has woven just for us.
