25 ⚡️Thankful for everyone in my life for teaching me to count my blessings, celebrate the little things, and look at the silver linings. With surgeries and strange diagnoses, living apart from my best friends and family, 24 seemed endless. Made it into the year that “will change your life,” says my mom, with the help of my second family in TN, and a little piece of home. And... another selfie. 😉
I was on a double date and I made ALL 4 OF US go find this wall in East Nashville so i could grab a photo.⠀ ⠀ Not because I needed some bae content. Not for the likes. Honestly it’s not even my ~aesthetic~. But I had to find it and I had to get a photo because this message is everything I’ve been feeling for weeks.⠀ ⠀ So many dragons have stood in my way.⠀ ⠀ Comparison.⠀ ⠀ Not feeling good enough.⠀ ⠀ Lack of action.⠀ ⠀ Low confidence.⠀ ⠀ Shame and guilt.⠀ ⠀ Human validation.⠀ ⠀ My hearts desire is to no longer be held back by those dragons. To slay them once and for all. To live in the victory that I am entitled to in Christ.⠀ ⠀ READY TO SLAY SOME FREAKIN DRAGONS 🐉🐉🐉⠀ ⠀
New car, new home, clear eyes, full hearts, better ingredients, better pizza, papa Johns. Today marks the beginning of my journey to move out of a very dark era of my life and on to what makes me happy. Hell yes. Hit me up if you’re in the area or very far away, I don’t care. I need friends and although I might not be the best one you want, I can guarantee you’re the best one I need! ❤️
5 years ago the only thing I ever thought about was tattooing. Just 2 years have passed since doing my first tattoo, and It’s funny to look back at what my world was like before all this. My life has transformed for the better in so many ways since lining out that first rose, and I’ve learned so much in the process. I’m so glad that I waited, and that I pushed myself to make it happen when it seemed so impossible. Tattooing has given me so much these past couple of years, and helped me tremendously during a time when a positive future for myself was hard to imagine. I can’t believe so much has changed in such a short span of time, and I’m looking forward to what the next year and beyond has in store for me. Thank you again to everyone who has trusted me with their skin (especially those who trusted me during those first few months)!
She made it.This photo taken by one of my dear friends and heroes on many fronts @captjamiehough,proves it!..The countless tears and prayers we have poured out for the people and the soul of this and the surrounding islands were somehow stalled for a second when I saw this girl Honeymoon Cottage still standing.She was our island home,where a 4 digit phone number, countless Rum and sodas,conch salads,cross word puzzles,Songs, bedtime stories,sunburns,great friends,curly tail lizards, our neighbors the Yazinski’s,The Malone’s,The Keys, The Champagne Sisters and a cat named midnight embraced our family for several years.My families common regret was and still is, selling her.We just hope she’s housing folks during the tragic process of rebuilding the most magical place on earth.@hope4hopetown #hopetown @songwritersinparadise #dorian
