How to have a fabulous Monday? ⁣ ⁣ 1. Drink coffee ⁣ 2. Have a grateful heart⁣ ⁣ Ok ok maybe those should be flipped but I am truly grateful for coffee today and my heart is so full after this Easter weekend. We have so much to be thankful for!! When I first starting gratitude journaling it was foreign to me and I had a hard time getting past surface level things or sometimes struggled to come up with anything. ⁣ ⁣ The more I plugged into it the easier it became and the more I found grateful for! I urge you every day to write down 3 things your grateful for and see how it can change your whole day around which spreads to your week, month, year, & life! 💖

One week ago today I launched Luna & Jade! I had NO clue how it would go, but I knew that the thought of not knowing was harder than the thought of not following my passion. ⁣🌙 ⁣ THANK YOU all so much for this last week. It was better than I could ever have dreamed and I can not wait to see how the next weeks, months, and years go. 💕

post Easter sugar high hangover. Getting them up and out the door for school today should be super fun 🙄 Oh wait, I’m the one who just rolled out of bed 45 minutes late 💁🏼‍♀️ Apparently my actually life says school, but my head and time management capabilities still says homeschool. Happy Monday friends! Deep breathes 😉🙏🏼 It’s aaaaaalll good ✌🏼💗🌈

Yesterday was the saddest Easter I’ve had in 47 years. . Because of immunodeficiency, I had to stay home, away from people. . On a day when it seems like everyone is dressed in their prettiest clothes, celebrating with their people, I felt so isolated. . My husband and I live streamed a @redrockschurch service and the lead pastor’s message really spoke to me. . He talked about Peter’s denial of Christ during those final hours. And how Peter went on to feel such remorse. . After the denial, Peter returned to the life he had been living before he met Jesus, as a fisherman. . During the days of Christ’s resurrection, Jesus sought out Peter to redeem that relationship. He made it a priority to let Peter know that it was okay, that Peter was still loved. . The pastor compared Peter’s experience to the way some of us may feel in life; when events hurt so badly that we feel like God can’t possibly care about us anymore. . I thought of the hurt that has built up in recent years: the leukemia relapse & immunodeficiency, the Crohn’s flare. These happened in spite of my best attempt to live a healthy lifestyle. . It makes no sense and it has hurt terribly. . I haven’t denied Christ like Peter, but in my own way, I have lost my faith that was once so strong. . Yesterday’s message reminded me that He comes for us. Even when we feel sad or isolated; when we feel broken or unloveable. He will come for us. . I sat with tears on my cheeks and tried to let down the protective walls I have built up around my heart. . It’s a step. That’s all we can do when we are hurting, take those baby steps & try to let down our guard. . Have you ever felt your faith waiver when things go terribly wrong? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #InstaLove #DeeplyRooted #Easter #redrockschurch #microblogger #littlestoriesofmylife #ThatAuthenticFeeling #CrohnsWarrior #LeukemiaSurvivor #GrowthMindset #LiveAuthentic #ChooseJoy #DontQuitYourDayDream #HealthyHabits#Inspiration #Hope #SelfCare #WriteYourStory #Mindset #LiveYourBestLife #ForgiveYourself#HealYourBody #HealthyHappyLife #BeDeeplyRooted #BeautyFromAshes #IntentionalLiving#Inspiration #TheFeelGoodDays

Straight up y’all—I’ve come off of four medications since January which is a total VICTORY, but it hasn’t been without its stressors. My autoimmune journey and my anxiety journey have been such an up and down battle, and even though this was the goal—to get my body healthy enough to be medication free—there are always those lingering questions in the the back of my mind, especially since two of those four meds were anxiety ones. . Anxiety has been a big and an annoying part of my journey—the way that it can seep into anything and everything, even the best moments, and color it all differently. There have been seasons where it has been so prevalent and times where it has been more dormant, but even then it was always there somewhere lurking in the background. Technically I’ve been diagnosed with a gamut of things ranging from generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, to PTSD, although I try to not let those things define me, especially in this current season where God is doing a BIG work in this area of my life. I’ve struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember, but only in the last four years or so did it get so bad that I tried medication here and there before settling into a routine that seemed to work well for me. And now it is with both excitement and, well, anxiousness, that I come off of them for now. It’s both a personal choice but also an educated one I am making with my team of doctors. So much of mental health is tied to our gut health, and after nearly a decade of trying to heal my gut, mine is finally healthy. PRAISES! And I feel GOOD. So I’m embracing that this season (even though it is for sure high stress cause HI WEDDING IN 39 DAYS!). It’s a victory that I’m walking into tentatively—do you ever feel that way? . All that to say—friend, if you suffer from anxiety or any host of mental health related things, I feel for you, and am praying for you, especially today as all of this is just on my heart. Praying most of all that you see how God is present with us even in the deep, and even when it feels like He is not. If you need a little extra prayer today, just put a heart in the comments ❤️❤️❤️
