I Don’t Always Say the Right Thing

I Don’t Always Say the Right Thing

A Box of Hope


I’ll let you all in on a little secret.

I don’t always say the right thing.


There, I admitted it. *wipes sweat off brow*

I try, I really really try but the truth is, I sometimes let my emotions lead. It is usually a bad idea but it happens. I say things or right write things or Tweet things that I wish I hadn’t. Sometimes I use the delete button and other times I just let my cringeworthy comments hang out there for all the world to see.

That is a big deal for me.

You see, growing up I often heard that I should just “be myself”. While trying to “be myself” there were always messages around me about how “girls should act” and how “Christians should act” and how “someone your age” should act. The problem is, with all the mixed messages bombarding me,  it took a lot longer for me to find out who that was. I am still not sure that I know exactly who I am but I’m really ok with that.

I am free! I am released to figure it out. I’m still young and as far as I know healthy so I will continue to make it an adventure!

That makes me giddy. It fills me with joy! It even makes me really really happy!

So for now, I’ll keep resting in whose I am. I’ll be determined to walk in the spirit and rest in the Love of the One who loves me most! Thanks for coming along with me.

Always,

Hope
