tminspired You know you're up there with the big boys when your client gets you your first lens mug as a part of their thank you gift. 🏻️ For me, it has always been the little things that help me feel appreciated the most, and this gift truly warmed my heart. I have the greatest clients ever. 3d

tminspired I'm broken. I'm not perfect. I have a lot of weaknesses. I can't do some things as well as other people can. I fail at a lot of things I try so sometimes I decide to just.. not try. But I'm also reminded that I've been given specific strengths and talents that are meant just for me. And it's okay to not be talented at everything. It's okay to fail. I'm reminded that even when I'm weak, I can be made strong. And it's crazy comforting to know that I'm not alone, so I just want to remind you that YOU are not alone. It's okay to be broken, because the truth is that we all are.. No matter how much we're taught to hide our weaknesses and to pretend like our life on earth is perfect.

What would our community look like if we embraced our strengths AND our weaknesses? What if we were open about both? What if we all took a step outside of our comfort zones? What if we comforted each other when someone does and fails? What if we rejoiced with them when they succeed? What if we focused on building each other up instead of tearing each other down? A community that deeply loves each other.. exactly as we are. That sounds really nice, doesn't it?

tminspired Today's project: a new instagram wall. I used to have one on my main focal point wall, but I'm mounting a large print up there instead. So now I get to have this lovely view from my bed every night and every morning. Still a work in progress, of course. But I ran out of photos + I'm loving what it is so far! I should make it a new priority to buy some light switch covers. Oh well, it's time to document some more memories! By the way, @postalpix is the best. I always buy my IG prints from them. #PostalPix 3w

tminspired God meets us where we are at. He invites us into a relationship with him and gives us the choice. He lifts us up when we humbly come to him. He weeps when we weep. He rejoices with us in joy. He gives us what we need, not just everything we want. He speaks to us in all different types of meaningful ways. He is proud of us. He encourages us to use our talents. He is our ultimate cheerleader. His love is unfailing. He loves us unconditionally.

He's pretty much the coolest.

Loved seeing a snapshot of his creation today with @nathanochoa.

tminspired A couple of months from now it'll be a year. A year from taking my first step towards healing. A year from asking for help. A year of digging into my weaknesses. A year of being open about what's going on in my heart. And really, it's been a year from what helped jump start this process: a horrible backpacking trip had sent my anxiety to go from somewhat manageable to completely out of control. It was a trip that risked my life, Nathan's life, and opened my eyes to the world of the complete unknown.. Which, to me, has always been the scariest place in the world. I realize now that it was a lot "easier" to live in denial. But a life filled with denial isn't a life that I want. Because now I know what it's like to able to fully live. I can be real. I can breathe. I can let go and let it be. Of course, this is still a process.. But I've already found so much freedom. And it's better than I could've imagined.

I'm considering writing about the backpacking experience either through a blog post or through Instagram. I've been avoiding it because it was truly one of the most life changing experiences of my life, and also one of the hardest, physically and emotionally. Even though it's really hard to write about, I've realized that it's time for me to share. I'm leaning more towards an Instagram series where I will share my story, but I'd love to hear your thoughts, friends.

Life isn't all about sunshine and buns and coffee and (really) cute dogs. Those are great, and there are so many more great things we get to enjoy. And all of those are huge blessings. But. It's also really hard to navigate. Choices are difficult to make. Responsibilities are exhausting. Taking a risk can seem impossible. Sometimes, it takes everything in us to take just one step forward. It's hard to stay true to ourselves when the grass always seems greener. It's scary to put ourselves out there when we could fail or look stupid. It's hard to be a light in the darkness.

That's why it's good for us to come together, to laugh together and to weep together. It's good to hold each other up. It's good to be a community that stands together. I'm choosing to stand up. Will you stand with me?
