    my life will never look or be that flawless. even if style it and curate my feed, all it will be is a facade. kind of like the still-figuring-it-out sylvia plath version: depressing and angsty, with a side of hoarding and indecision and self-consumption. deep + mysterious, maybe. aesthetically interesting, sure. fatally flawed? 💯%——i mean, if we can even give my life that much credit. just know that for every image with pretty lettering or natural lighting of beautiful scenes or flowers…there's also dozens of unused mugs and brand new vinyls that have never been played, clothes sprawled out everywhere on one bed, an art supply explosion on the floor of a bedroom, and keys that're lost way more frequently than they are found. there's still a rogue suitcase spilling out five feet from this scene, waiting to be emptied + taken out to the garage. two rooms that i can’t figure out which is mine. and right beyond the frame, there's a real person that is struggling with the real art of learning to be herself, how to be a good Daughter, sister, and a good friend, also learning not hate her body, or ignore her soul while trying to find a new job after being laid off and have a not-so-tragic date life or lack of while consistently existing on 2% battery life. it's easy to only see one little square or a feed and think it's the whole picture, but it's not. this is just part of my messy, flawed, life. i'm knee deep in the disaster, and i think it's important to keep showing up despite my inadequacies, and i wouldn't have it any other way. because this is my life. because if i woke up tomorrow and had zero followers, i don't want to be crushed. i can't live for the likes, and neither can you. our lives shouldn't be reduced to that. our lives are richer than that. in the midst of it all, i'm going to keep trying to figure it out and be honest, even when it's ugly. but for now, as the new-year-soon-rings, i will be taking a break [not sure how long + that’s the best part] from instagram and focusing on my relationships, friendships, and my Faith. these things are the most important to me. thank you for the kind words + "me too" talks. see you next time. ✨🌿💛

    it's saturday. sometimes the happiest day, but sometimes the toughest after having a long week. this could be a season of wildness or settling for you, but maybe it's neither...maybe it's a season of becoming. i just hope you know that you're capable, brave and significant. even when it feels like you aren't. 💕

    BIG SUR forever. this place never fails to crush the hype around it, slaying with the kind of colors and feels that are simply beyond words. its impossible to exist along this stretch without sweet awareness of our smallness and our significance in this majestic universe. this trip was especially adventurous thanks to the limekilns trail + slightly fearing for our lives. what better way to reflect on a powerful month than gazing out at this.


    these are the the moments + things pinching me, promising me that there is Purpose in my misty memories, that i'm on the right path, even if i don't always get the aerial view.

    thank you to all who wrote a response the other day with how you're being brave...they were such sweet things to read for me + i'm sure you needed to be reminded & hear it yourself. to yourself. 🌿

    i'm being brave by not allowing fear define me. to not let my anxiety + depression get the best of me...trying. so hard. saying "yes" more often and meaning it. allowing people to comfort me than push them away: "i don't wanna hear it..." by not letting this current rough season get in the way of the Joy in the morning. being so thankful for those in my life that have stood by me while my world seems to be crumbling beneath me. this lil lady is one of those few and beyond thankful for her spontaneity + wanting to spend time with me on her day off... ✨

    Dig it! Nice work!

    Although I don't necessarily see myself as brave, conquering my second chronic illness that I was recently diagnosed with is at the top of my list of things to do, which can only be completed with God by my side. There are far too many days where I want to curl up in a ball and give in to the pain and defeat, but I believe that God has a purpose for me amidst this trial and I choose to fight instead. I'm not entirely sure what you're going through but you will be in my prayers. Miss you! ❤️

    I'm the last person to want to be involved in any kind of conflict, but lately I've been really intentional about entering into healthy conflicts/discussions. Bravery has been sharing what's on my mind even when I'm afraid of how people might react ❤️ love you, friend.

    Cant be specific here, but choosing to pray and then get up and move through my day with purpose, when I want to curl up & hide. Looking at what I CAN do, rather than what I can't.

    there are no words of how excited i am to not only see these lil cute bb lumps, but also my sweet sister and her husband this wednesday and thursday. uninterrupted. it's very much needed for me to just get away + run to some of the most caring arms. also, to meet their new family member, bailey [which may be @iamkefir's future wife... but that is way too soon to say + they're both fixed. so. 😂] i mean, but anyway, that IS what family is all about. amirite??
    🌿

    even the "worst" things in my life have refined me, grown me, made me rise, get better, give bigger, forgive, find out what kinda fighter i am. they've even unexpectedly opened new doors and given way to new opportunities. i hope the hard times never harden my earnest heart or keep me from still hoping, still loving. i know these things to be true. i still need to be reminded. i hope you're reminded of this as well because you are. keep fighting. keep pressing on.

    embrace your odd. i'm twenty-three and still cried in the car yesterday over how utterly ridiculous i can be. if wonky lives make for better music, maybe the answer isn't in loathing but leaning in. one day, we will look back with Grace, empathy + maybe even a little admiration for the flawed but earnest human who sits in our shoes today.... i'm sure of it.

    sometimes, we can't wish it away. we can't chirp platitudes and we don't actually believe it all "happens for a reason." sometimes, life just sucks and dumps a truck full of crap on your doorstep and you just have to wade through it to get out. i'm there. the crap seems to just. keep. coming. honestly, i feel beat into submission from all angles right now. i'm acutely aware and have been reminded, repeatedly, that there is a massive galaxy of things outside of my control. in the midst of this, i am TRYING to quiet my anxiety, give space for my grief, and optimistically lean into orders and outcomes that i would never have chosen for myself. it is the opposite of easy
    ✨
there is nothing more powerful than a "me too." sometimes we don't need more tips or tricks... we just need to know we are not alone.
    ✨
so for those of you who had a crap day… those mourning great loss... those stuck in circumstances outside your control… those with bad news from the doctor/boss/parents/lover/friend/newspaper… those overwhelmed, those suffering from heartbreak or bearing the weight of an internal war, etc etc etc...
✨
    me too. me too. me too. sometimes words fail, but know you, we, are not alone. ✨
    🌿

    i'm thankful that our story DOES NOT END here too. thankful that i have people surrounding me with love + sweet reminders from here at home to miles + miles from here and of course, an abundant amount of Grace from the Father. i am thankful to be here. to love. to create. to worship. to dance. and to live. please continue to press on. keep loving. keep sharing. keep feeling. keep being you.

    few things are more important in the long run of life than this: honesty + integrity in all things. be true to the stuff inside you. beware: it has a way of knowing and showing up, whether you choose it/like it or not. ✨
