recovering + redefining the rules
I was raised from a young age that it was best to stay within the firm boundaries of the rules that were laid out for me.  And I pretty much complied.  I did not want to risk losing the respect or love of my family, so I set up some pretty unrealistic expectations for myself as I grew older. Those led to creating unhealthy habits that ruptured into pathways of anxiety and stress. Let me be completely clear in saying that I am the only one who created those expectations. After years of putting myself through adverse emotional conditions, I decided it was time to reposition myself to accept peace and grace through flexible rules that would not dictate my success.  It’s not a perfect blueprint, but it is one that is fluid and can be adjusted to meet the standards that I desire for my life.

uncertain moments of trust
do you know what i learned today?  that we make an idol out of CERTAINTY.  in addition, we chase after control, clarity, protection, + safety in all areas.  we long for EXACT answers + for every detail of our lives to line up perfectly. uncertainty + trust play a key role in developing our life's foundations. yes, the ups + downs will always be there, sometimes very unexpected. what I desire is ultimate HOPE + clarity for us all.  a constant state of HOPE that permeates + saturates every area of uncertainty. allowing our static souls to emerge with fresh confidence + expectation of what is to come.
