I am SO excited to be a part of the Local Live event at Free People, this Sunday in Durham, NC!!! Live band + local artists + local food (bestie, Jessie with her amazing Cookie Cult yummies!) And to top it all off, with every purchase, your name will be put into a drawing for a basket of amazing local goodies! It's going to be a blast! Whose coming?!! I'll be selling my Bohemian Ink prints and temporary tattoos! I really hope to meet lots of new friends who have the same passions for living with a free spirit and creativity.

Don't Be Afraid to Hope

posted on: Monday, March 17, 2014

Choosing to live in a place of disappointment is so easy sometimes. It's got a weird comfort and familiarity about it. Choosing to believe that I'm loved  over the fear of my disappointments repeating themselves feels risky and terrifying.

As I take that seemingly illogical and idiotic step off of the cliff,
a million let downs and long ago cried tears try to argue against that one simple choice-trust.

This cliff of belief in the notion that Jesus will take care of me, that good things can happen and will happen. That hope isn't a wasted practice or cruel joke, but a reality that precedes beauty and promise.

I choose to trust in his love for me over what I think I see.

He catches, he holds, he tends my heart with simple love, that calms the anxious into rest and expectation of good.

Don't be afraid to hope.
