So Much For A Comeback...

So, this post is LONG overdue.

It's like that library book you forgot about and found YEARS later.


Anyway, I thought I would give you an update on my life before disappearing for a month. (More on that later).

1. My last post discussed the book "Girl Meets Change" or how I legit cried for the first time on an airplane.

Two months later and those truths are still fresh in my mind.

This book will definitely stay in my "must read" pile for awhile.

2. I was also supposed to publish a post about Jeff Bethke's new book, "It's Not What You Think" but never did. Here's why.

As I was reading through chapter five of the book, I was instantly convicted.  

"If we aren't sabbathing, the question is, are we free? Or are we slaves to performance, to our phones, to being needed, to being in the know, to pleasure, to addiction?
The day is a gift. It's a filling. It's not a burden or legality meant to be technically obeyed.
When we honor Sabbath, we are pointing to the future when that will be true forever. Every moment will be a Sabbath moment in the restoration of all things." 

Ya'll. I've never truly "sabbath-ed."

Since I can't go completely without my phone due to school and work, I've decided to give up social media for a month.

Social media is noisy and most of the time, I get lost in it.

It's also taken up waaayyy too much of my time.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE social media and desire to be a social media marketer one day!

But, for right now, I NEED a break.

Which leads me to my next point...

3. If you still want to keep up with me, download Beme.

Don't know what Beme is? Here's a quick introduction...

{yes, they sent me a free t-shirt!} 

You can follow me on Beme here:

I know what you're thinking... Isn't that social media as well?

Yes, but it's unedited and there's no such thing as likes/comments or a way to know who exactly watches your Bemes.

4. For those of you who don't know, my family has taken quite a hit this year. I'm currently the only non-injured family member who is holding up the fort. (our Christmas card is going to be so great this year.) If you're still looking for ways to help, feel free to message me!

5. This is still my life...

As much as I love getting paid to be a soccer mom, I desire to explore more opportunities in my degree field - Marketing. If you know of any paid internships, feel free to message me! (note: they don't have to be in The South.) 

6. Finally, I plan to update you in another post about my current life plans. For now, I plan to pursue Union University in Jackson, TN. I can't wait to share what's happened since this post!

I hope you enjoy your week! I know I will!
