The Gold Is Your Story

Ok, so to start, here is a little about me. I am creative, with a creative mind, I am expressive, talkative. I talk a lot actually. I share my discoveries and what I’ve learned and created, all this making story telling another of my favorite things to do. I pull from my true stories, and inspiring stories because there are lessons to learn and remember. There is plenty of gold to pull out and share. I believe that stories inspire. When I was young I was the observer and listener, learning and taking my own statistics in life, while doodling in between. But I am in the activated journey of living it out, learning and sharing and revealing the treasures I have found in life while still doodling in between. So this short post is to encourage you to remember that when you are living life, whether you are surviving, thriving or even in a season of observation, there is something to take from it. There is so much to discard too, But please hold on to the gold that you find on your journey. Share it amongst each other at tables, road trips, walks, fishing, and my favorite, coffee dates. This making each other rich in wisdom and inspiration.

Let’s Reconnect

This is my very first blog entry. I usually enjoy sharing my life on Instagram and Facebook, but I wanted to go back to my roots when social media was on its first steps into culture. I was a teenager who loved to journal almost everyday. It brought me a sense of importance as I wrote my life down on paper and on journaling sites. It was a courageous time for me, exposing all my feelings for who knows who to read. I enjoyed writing to my friends these really long crammed words, 3 page front to back letters everyday. No wonder I got my first D that year. Although it cost me a little drama (no secret is secure on paper). I managed to still journal consistently until one day I let it go. I was in a season where I found closure from my first heartbreak. I wanted to be free from feeling and reabsorbing old pain I had already processed and that’s where I stopped journaling. The gap between that teenage season of writing and now is almost 15 years. So here I am, all grown up, married and, and ready to open this chapter up to whoever will read. Oh and also there is a new twist to things old friends, I am a Christian blogger now. Here is the culture of writing, teaching, and creating things with Jesus.
