A Quote You Try To Live By

This one serves as a good reminder. It encourages me, it pushes me, it reminds me to do more, to be more, and that I am more. 

 I love this. I've struggled a lot with these concepts. I love that we already are enough. We don't have to do something to earn our worthiness. We are worthy. Period. Not because of what we've done or who we are. There is nothing required to be worthy. You just are. 

These have been new concepts for me, new ideas, new beliefs that I've started to pursue and embody. That we have a story that's worth sharing. And that being brave is to engage and to be vulnerable. 

I love, love, love this one. Agape is one of my favorite words. Agape love is this unconditional, true, worthy, love. Even if, no matter what, no matter what you've done, no matter what you haven't done, no matter what you think, or say, or believe, there is this unconditional, love that says you are worthy. They aren't any fences around it, no one is excluded. 

I wrote this awhile ago. And this is me and who I am and why I do what I do. 

Things You Like and Dislike About Yourself

A few years ago, one of my friends asked me to write a list similar to this...
...I never did it.

Something You're Currently Worried About

The trouble with having this public way of journaling is that I begin to write for the audience and not for myself. It becomes less helpful as far as introspection for me and more about appealing to people...again.

I'm currently worried about a lot of things. A lot, a lot. I found something the other day that was a small book that will allow me to document short anecdotes about things that, well, scare me essentially. it's called"Do One Things Everyday that Scares You". It has prompts and quotes and idea and is small, where I can just start to push myself just a little bit every day.

What I'm currently worried about is a combination of failing, succeeding, and staying stuck. They're woven together, making it quite worrisome. It's been the dominating thought for awhile, particularly this past month.  T
