Life has been a lot of up's and a poop ton of downs. my gracious. yesterday i won a free xl pizza but also had an emo breakdown because of things in my past that i am now reaping because of what i sowed. it is hard. i am tired. i'm being physically attacked in just about every area and i want to shave my head off and at the same time i want to dye my hair blue. i'm trying not to get sick because i'm battling mentally, but i'm also battling physically. insecurities are real. they are raw and they are present because i am pursuing healthiness and honesty. and for the first time i'm not hiding behind my problems; but i am conquering them. i've knocked down some big dragons in my heart and in my life and i am doing it. i am doing it. tired yet strong. scared but brave. learning yet unlearning. i am doing it. and the coolest thing is that i know i'm not alone. i know so many of you are walking with me or smiling because you just stepped out of this season. i have the most precious people holding my hand and buying me ice cream when i need it. like this guy right here. love is filling up my core and i am beyond hopeful. i'm learning to accept people for what they offer. even for their love. i'm learning to accept mine too. be hopeful in whatever season you are in. and for the people who are walking with you; hold them close. people need people. always. i love y'all 💕

Time is one of the hardest battles i've fought with. it's so easy to want to be intentional but feel overwhelmed and like i have absolutely no time for it. life is life and when we are trying to balance everything and also deal with emotions, time management is key. i really have had to be diligent with how i spend my time and with how organized i keep things. taking a balanced approach to growth is key, and there is no balance without proper management in all areas. @eyuscareers understands that, and that's why i've partnered with them to share a little bit of my heart behind why time is so important. #ad#ey#betterquestions
Sometimes it's extremely hard not to get caught up; especially with my work and creativity. i really learned that in the beginning of my job. my work can be so overwhelming and i'm sure yours can as well. i've really made it a priority to take care of my health and keep up a healthy body, and one of the best ways i've found
in doing that is climbing. it's a brain workout and a body workout. and i feel like it's my little escape from everyday life. it took me some time but i've really come to terms that having a healthy lifestyle physically creates a healthy lifestyle mentally. i'm really excited to partner with @eyuscareers who stand for a lot of similar amazing things. your day time job or career shouldn’t hold you back from an incredible life. don't get caught up y'all. #ad#ey#betterquestions

The other day on twitter a poem from @iamkidpresident & @bradmontague flashed on my timeline and i instantly started yelling "yes. this is what i stand for. yes." be kind to others. always make room. always. the poem reads: "there's room for you and room for him,
room for her
and room for them.
room for young. room for old.
room for shy and room for bold.
room for short and room for tall.
tell me, how is there room for all?
here is the secret to making rooms great:
we refuse to ever make room for hate." #wordsfromthewindowseat
Story time b/c jesus is so cool!!!! so most of y'all know-- i moved into my current home a few months ago with a close friend of mine and with a random guy i didn't know named sam. this is samuel. i like to call him sambam or peter pan. we instantly became bff's and then the love bug kind of bit us both. (his heart is pure gold and his eyebrows are on fleek so how on god's green earth could i not get bit?!?!) but today we moved all of his stuff out so we can pursue each other the right & healthy way. it's been hard. i'm not gonna wake up to my best friend singing about farts. change is hard. but something i have learned through out this whole process is that doing the right thing isn't always the easiest thing. but man oh man is it worth it. because not only are we doing the right thing, but we are growing as humans and we are growing in love and our joy tank is overflowing. jesus is gonna bless the c**p out of it. proud of you samuel. ✨💕
