You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.

Lame girl post but I do what I want.

Wanting someone to love you and needing someone to love you are two completely different things.

I don’t need to be in a relationship to be happy or to feel loved - but I really wouldn’t mind sappy texts and cuddling either.

There is this odd trend
of taken women
saying they are too much,
and how the men they love
are amazing for dealing with them.

Love should not be a responsibility.
You should not have to deal with me.
Just because a woman is wild
and free
does not mean she is difficult.
He is not a martyr for loving me
through the good
and not so good.

Some mornings I will wake up swinging,
you do not get a gold star
for still loving me.

Some mornings I will wake up like a lamb,
you do not get a gold star
for loving me.

I am not a hurricane of a girl,
you always have the chance to leave.

Because love should be unconditional and not given for praise.

For those of you who don’t know - I work at least 50 hours a week between 4 jobs and 25 of those hours are unpaid. I don’t have many friends so I have been fighting loneliness harder than ever before. I miss my family and friends back in Texas (and insert some other complaint here). This summer has been mentally and physically exhausting and there have been several times where I have questioned if I even want to continue working in the music industry when I could just move back to Texas and get one solid job.
So today I got home from work, put on some lipstick, and told myself to choose joy. I knew moving to Nashville was going to be hard and though these past few months have been difficult I have also gotten to experience some pretty awesome (like what-is-my-life awesome) things. My life is far from easy but I am incredibly blessed. So I’ll smile and thank God for a body that wakes up 7 days a week to work and I pray that people will see Him when they interact with me.

I just want someone who won’t get annoyed when I text them six times or in all caps. Someone I can go on long drives with and can sing along to the radio with. Someone I can eat pizza with at 2am and kiss at 6pm. Someone who chooses me everyday and never thinks twice about it.

I just wanna be a girl for a second. THIS IS PERFECT.

You are loved.

Today is one of those “I need to remember I am loved” kind of days. Moving into a house off campus and realizing that certain friendships have faded has been extremely difficult on me. Trying to keep a joyful heart while feeling alone hasn’t been the easiest task- so today I am reminding myself that I am loved. 

And so are you.

An honest Christian life is messy. There’s you in all your sin, and problems, and not okay-ness, and Jesus is working in you, taking over more and more areas of your life. It is a process, and it can be slow, but accepting this works a whole lot better than just trying to hold your breath and act like you’ve got it all together.

Sometimes I wish more Christians would admit how much of a mess they really are. None of us are perfect and that is perfectly fine.

Normally I only use tumblr for quotes and random thoughts but today I feel like posting a photo of my face.

…And please remember that you were beautiful before he told you that you were.

This is something I see girls struggle with constantly and that needs to change. Take it from someone who hasn’t had a guy around to tell me that I’m “beautiful” in over 2 years (my dad doesn’t count). And guess what? I KNOW I’M BEAUTIFUL. My beauty- our beauty and self worth shouldn’t come from a guy. Whether you believe in God or not your beauty should never come from someone else because you are worth more than someone else’s opinions.

Remember that.

Personal thoughts; love language.

My love language is quality time. I like to constantly be around the people I consider my friends and family because that is what brings me joy. That is what fills me up with life and keeps me going. I could be with you for a week straight and still feel like hanging out because that is how my heart works. I honestly never get sick of the people I love.

And that scares me because I know others don’t think the same way.

ellenthankyou asked
Praying for your mom and your family! Hope she's doing okay!

You are so kind! She’s doing better just taking things slow, no work for her and family is helping around the house. thank you :)

Today I was asked why I’m always smiling and happy. A couple of weeks ago I was asked why I’m so nice. Both times I answered “why not?” I do it because I know the impact that kindness can have on other people. In all honesty I may be sweet but it doesn’t always come naturally. Sometimes I want to ignore every human I know, but I won’t because I just know what it’s like to feel unwanted or unimportant and I don’t ever want anyone to feel like that. My life is nowhere near perfect but it’s not about me- it’s about making someone else feel loved. So if I can share a smile with someone or ask how their day is then that’s what I’ll do. Simple as that. 

Try going out of your way to be kind to someone. I promise life looks brighter when you stop putting yourself first.

Make sure you tell the people you love that you love them. Loudly and often. You never know when it might be too late.

Guys this hits home right now because my mother has been in and out of the hospital for the past few weeks. Thank God she is doing alright but seriously don’t take the ones you love for granted. Don’t let another day pass without telling people you love them.
