" I Want Her Life"

We know Instagram is not real, we've heard the quote about comparing our behind the scenes with everyones highlight reel, but every now and then you may see something that makes you think "Nope, I'm pretty convince that her life is better than mine. And frankly I wish I was her". No? Just me?  [nervous laugh]

Freedom from Fear of Failure


I heard about this social experiment they did where they divided an art class in two. They told half the class that they would be graded on the quantity of pots that they could make and they told the second group that they would be graded on the quality of the pots they made. Funny thing is the most beautiful high quality pots came from the first group because they weren't concerned about meeting the 'quality standards' they were free to create, make mistakes and improve with every pot they made. This group quickly learnt new ways of how they could improve. Meanwhile, the second group worked tirelessly to make their first pot perfect and didn't get nearly as great results!

Isn't that wild? It makes sense though right? The fear of failure and the need for perfection will literally paralyze you.

How to be single…
I promise this won't be a condescending post where I'm teaching you how to be single because I'm so good at it (HA!). No, it's more of a rallying of the troops, sharing some wisdom I found on the journey and encouraging you wherever you're at. Wether you're single and loving it, single and frustrated or in a dead-end relationship…I have you in mind.

When it comes to the subject of singleness or specifically single women there is a long and colourful spectrum. On one end there are days, moments or groups of people who feel like this...

and on the other end there are days, moments or groups of people who feel like this...

And if you're anything like me no part of this spectrum is foreign to you!
So here are a few nuggets I have on the subject of How to Be Single….

The Number #1 Lie I Believed about God




Flat out, the number one lie that I believed about God was that "He was witholding  good from me". In other words, I didn't trust that God really  had my back. The longer I live my life the more I realize that the root issue always links back to a lack of trust. I've come along way...but my idea of God use to be so distorted. I honestly believed that life with him would be stifling, that I would feel so confined and restricted that His rules would both frustrate and limit me from experiencing all there was to life! Man I was sooo wrong, I was deceived.
