{ girls bite back }


Hey friends!

Have you ever been stuck in a place or space in life and looked up and asked God, “When is this season going to be over?” or, “Where is the light at the end of this tunnel?” I usually don’t get too personal on here and not because I don’t want to let you in my life, but because when I visit blogs, it’s usually to surf the web and look at pretty things. I also want this creative space and platform to be a place where you visit and get inspired. But lately I’ve been itching to share more about what is motivating me just because it may also help some of you. Whether you’re dealing with a past relationship, past disappointments, death or any other heartache, I hope this post motivates you to look up and dream again.

My life is in a weird place at this moment, not the happiest place, but I also recognize that it could be worse. It’s been almost 4 months since I made a change in my life and the feeling is a little too similar to when my dad passed away. What I learned from my dad’s passing was that depression is real and it’s a very dark place to be. I then had to make the decision to snap out of it, life has to go on and it would have been something that he would have wanted me to do. My dad hated seeing people sad, crying or in pain so I knew he would have been very disappointed to see me that way. Slowly but surely, life started to get brighter and things got funnier, and with the help of my siblings and loved ones, I moved on to a happier place. I think surrounding yourself with the right people and having a good support system is key to a happier life.  So I chose to do the same thing this time around. I have been given a second chance in life and I will strive to a happier me everyday. I’m turning my worries into prayers and holding on to God’s promises to help me carry on.

Hebrews 13:5, “he will never leave me or forsake me”

Psalms18:28 “My God turns my darkness into light”

Romans 8:28 “all things work together for the good for those who love God”

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding”

Exodus 14:14-15 “the Lord will fight for you, and you can be still”

Colossians 3:15 “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts”

I figured to share this post with this book because I dare myself and you to “bite back” as the embroidered detail says. I dare you and myself to dream again, move on and believe that this too shall pass!
