Tomorrow we begin our next adventure: volunteering in a turtle conservation program. We’ll be spending a week on an isolated Costa Rican beach looking after turtles and helping the local community. Not entirely sure what to expect from this, but always up for a new experience and saving the world one turtle at a time 🐢
🐉 “How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races—the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses. Perhaps all of the dragons in our lives are only princesses waiting for us to act, just once, with beauty and courage. “ . This book really has me facing some of my own dragons. This particular chapter touches on the practice of pausing, something I’ve found particularly challenging my whole life. . Pausing, not reacting. Pausing to let anger, frustration, agitation, rage, rejection, fear pass. Pausing to really face the dragon. To see what’s under the layers of sharp scales and find a wounded interior, someone guarding their own vulnerability, fear, shame. To see beyond the fiery exterior to find it’s not as scary as you had imagined. . “Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” . I’ve been pausing a lot lately. I’d like to practice it more. 🙏🏻 . Rainer Maria Rilke via Radical Acceptance, Embracing Your Life With The Heart of a Buddha.
dear woman: your desires aren’t too much, they are not shameful. your desires have been placed within you by creator God and He wants to meet you in that place. He beckons- would you open your hands so I can place mine there? We will carry these desires together. I’m not asking you to surrender them, I’m asking you to let me be a part of them, let me shape them, let me fulfill them. Let me move on your behalf. #dearwomanmovement
奈 良 They are soooo ADORABLE~ I got to feel like Snow White for a day and was secretly hoping that I am a deer whisperer. But after being head butted and bitten by them and being ignored once I have no food, I accepted that I am but a mere mortal.
I M P A C T series Here goes!! Just over a month ago I flew to the other side of the world to surprise you in a cute as little coffee shop and the process was flaw-free.. it worked perfectly, and I thank God for those 2 weeks of memories. Now we’re back on opposite sides of the world and I kind of hate it, but I love knowing that we’re both exactly where God wants us to be! I have the fullest confidence that this friendship (sisterhood, bestie-ship, etc.) can withstand anything, because it basically already has!! You are so authentic, so passionate and I love how you pursue Jesus. You’re the most beautiful woman in the world too which makes me miss you even more cause I want my photo model back.. Anyways, I could write so much more, but I want people to read it and know just how insanely special you are, Dree. Thanks for coming and seeing my world, I love how well you know me ❤️
