To the girl who has been through it,
To the girl who has felt empty,
To the girl who has felt worthless,
To the girl who has walked alone,
To the girl who lost her innocence,
To the girl who owns her shit,
To the girl who refused to be a victim,
To the girl who walks it off time and time again,
You are worthy. You are loved. You are strong. You are a force of nature. You are given hard battles to fight because you can win. Raise your sword and raise your standard. Sharpen yourself. You will find your way. And whoever you’ve allowed into your life is privileged to be there. Don’t give discounts on your love. Press on, and you will be given every desire of your heart. You are a gift.
I wish somebody would have told me.
If you want love, you're gonna have to go through the pain.
If you want love, you’re gonna have to learn how to change.
If you want trust, you’re gonna have to give some away.
Not really sure what I’ve done to deserve this girl. She has been there at my highest and lowest moments and has seen me at both. She is far wiser than her years and gives better advice than most people I’ve come into contact with. She doesn’t sugar coat anything either! So glad our lives crossed paths again nearly 2 years ago.
Lots of Jesus.
Lots of nature.
and 24 hours with no cell service.
The @kingdomculturenc retreat was exactly what I needed. So grateful for the amazing people and the amazing experience. (Of course I’m the one talking to the dog.)
