Hello Friend! I don’t know what brought you here but I do know that there’s a reason you landed on this page at this very moment. Maybe you were just looking for a recipe or an encouraging word. Whatever it is, I want you to know right now that you matter!
I once went to a women’s retreat where a speaker said 90% of women, when they walk into a room, feel like they don’t belong. Do you ever feel that way? I sure do! The situation rarely matters, I can walk into the grocery store and be self conscious of what other people think of me.
Can I tell you a secret? I spent much of my life wondering if I was enough. Playing the comparison game became my life. I worried constantly if I would ever measure up.
However, I have been starting to realize this hyper awareness I have of what everyone else might be thinking about me is exhausting! It is such a waste of what little energy I have to spend my time trying to be like someone else. Thinking about the amount of time I have wasted consumed with why I didn’t feel good enough honestly makes me a little sick. I wonder how my life might be different today if I hadn’t wasted all that time worrying about everyone else and focused on things that really mattered.
If you can relate, I want to tell you that you that no matter where life finds you, you have a place and I want you to feel welcomed here. I also want you to know that it isn’t too late to start living life to the fullest. We can start making changes today to get back on the path of who God wants us to be. I firmly believe that the first step is putting our focus on Christ above all else. I want to be there to come alongside you in the journey, wherever you are.
Will you grab a cup of your favorite beverage and sit with me? Since, we can’t really sit across from each other, I’ll start by telling you a little more about me.
I’m Ashley, wife to Neil and cat mama to our little black and white tuxedo kitty named Jax. I’ve lived in Michigan all of my life and couldn’t imagine ever living anywhere else.
Since I asked you to grab your favorite beverage, I should tell you that I used to be an avid coffee drinker until I had to give up most caffeine for health reasons, something the former barista in me still can’t believe. However, I do enjoy coffee occasionally, but it’s usually decaf. I also like lots of different kinds of tea so for the most part tea has taken place of coffee for me.
I’m an INFP on the Meyers Briggs test which basically means that I’ve always got a million different things going on in my head and I often live in my own little world. I’m an introvert but I desire to have deep friendships and enjoy being around other people in smaller groups.
I also consider myself a creative type and am constantly dreaming up ideas for new projects, most of which I never actually do. I also love a good DIY project so Hobby Lobby and Pinterest are two of my greatest weaknesses….I must look at all the pretty things!
Some of my favorite things to do include; reading, writing, working on a graphic design project and soaking in the beauty of God’s creation.
