My Social Life :)


My fears and defeating them!

I have so many fears in life it is absolutely ridiculous! I also know I am not the only person that does, so I thought this might be some encouragement for others...

Okay, So I am the type of person that can NOT do anything alone. I will not go shopping alone, I cant go through a drive- thru unless someone else is driving, I mean I really have some issues! I am incredibly shy and I have a hard time talking to people. 
Today I had to do something I really didn't want to do, but at the same time I did... haha I will explain....

Well today I got to meet Tico & Tina and their crew! They are on the Blank Canvas Tour right now and they stopped here in Wisconsin to do some interviews, and I was nominated by my wonderful friend Julie from The Funny Thing of it is. Well Julie asked me and my heart sank because I knew I was going to be recorded and of course had to talk to people I only know from blogging. At the same time I was really excited because they are from one of my VERY favorite blogs! How could I miss the chance!!?! Well also it was for a really good reason, to encourage others to live their dreams and to push through anything! 

So I basically prayed my way through it, I was nervous and had no idea what to say, but I did it! And I give ALL the glory to God for helping me get through it and have me meet some amazing people of God. I couldn't be more thankful! God gave me courage and words to speak today.

This picture was dawn by thee awesome Randal! It really means a lot to me, and its pretty crazy that every time I look at it, I just keep believing harder for my business! It makes me think that I will make it and this is what God wants for my life. It is a great inspiration for me, and where better to put it rather than on my order board on my desk!??! P.S... I didn't even put holes through it with the tacks, it means that much to me ;)

Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for coming and actually making a difference in my life. Thanks for pulling me out of my shell!
P.S. Sorry for my awkwardness and me talking in circles... I do that when I am nervous. Now I can work on fixing that! haha! <3 <3
