Sometimes I feel like fear can stop you from actively pursuing something you desire. Do you know what fear really means? Think about this. Fear not only means to withdraw (separate from, flee or remove oneself) but in essence means to avoid because of dread (fright). Do you ever dread taking a step because of how vulnerable it makes you feel or you think you're going to fall flat on your face and fail miserably? Here's what happens...we settle for what's comfortable. We settle for the "meh" (shrug shoulders) and leave the very thing that God is urging us to pursue, behind. I have been there and making the choice to do it afraid took me and my husband through a season of life that was HARD! And you know what? It doesn't end there. Until the day we die we are going to have to continually face fear in some way and choose to either side with comfort or do it afraid! We have spent way to much time wavering between fear of the unknown and our destiny. What I do know is the more we choose faith the easier it is to recognize the voice of fear and choose not to listen to it. #befearless

I think what some women may have forgotten is that the core of feminism is not female dominance or male belittlement but rather equal respect and opportunities for people, regardless of gender. The worst thing we as females can be doing is to be diminishing the very men whom could be aiding in making adequate change and positive impact for all peoples. We inevitably need men and men inescapably rely on women, it was and is our design. We need to see it as we need each other and that only together will we be able to acquire and secure true acceptance and authentic respect for man kind. We need to be empowering men and raising boys to be men that stand along side women and support one another. Denigrating all men will only perpetuate the issue at hand. We can not use absolutes and blanket statements to define a gender or sexual orientation. We need to stop pointing men out as the problem but rather, the solution. There will always be a supply if there is a demand and that is not just within the trafficking issue. Instead of only focusing on rescuing and supporting the supply, shouldn't we be working on eliminating the demand through the same tactics? Let's work on listening to understand instead of listening to respond. Let us be the change and empower others to do the same. Let us not just march but move ourselves to let love lead. I've seen the worst in brothels and media through my work, I've personally been sexually abused by the opposite sex, and the desire for dominance and distorted love/lust was the issue in the first place so let us not fight for superiority but unity.

||January 23rd|| And now, brothers, as I close this letter, let me say this one more thing: Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about.

Philippians 4:8

Fix your thoughts on all that is true,
And all that is good and right.
Think of what is beautiful,
And kind.
Dwell on what is fine and good,
Abd what is wonderful in others!
And think of the the reason you have to be glad and to praise your heavenly Father!

If you are interested in this workshop or know some one who would be interested. Please DM me or tag them in this post.
Learn about: -Timing & Location (visibility and position in the night sky)
-Proper gear
-Long exposure camera settings (aperture, shutter speed &a ISO)
-Composition and Angles
-Star Trails -Fun with light painting
Thank you for the love and support. I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you all. #milkyway #workshop #stars #space #travel

If you don't like words and you're just here for the photos, keep scrolling. If you're wondering why I just uploaded a blank screen, please allow me to explain. Before I ever connected with people through photos, I wrote. I wrote very personal things about myself, my bad decisions, my heartache, my hopes and the validation I felt when I thought I was getting it right. I wrote to a large audience who responded to everything I posted. They served as a shoulder to cry on and we shared plenty of laughs, but they also scolded me and occasionally gave me a well-deserved virtual smack. It was authentic, raw and I totally miss it. That was over 5 years ago, back when people still read and engaged with blogs. And when I say blogs, I mean well-articulated pieces published on websites, not top 10 lists that exist on Snapchat for a mere 24 hours. These days bloggers often spend more time packaging their pieces than they do writing them, and numbers take priority over story. Editors ask, "Who's going to click that?" I know this because I’ve worked in online publishing since 2008, and the overwhelming majority of what I now write is the internet equivalent of junk food. It’s created for one purpose, and one purpose only: To deliver a cheap and satisfying hit. The objective is not to add any intrinsic value to the life of the consumer, but rather, to distract them long enough to take a few bites. And then, to keep them coming back. The same thing has happened with social media. We don’t always know why we double tap the screen, but we do, even if we don’t actually like what we’re “liking.” We’re moving too fast and forgetting what it’s like to be a human — and to think for ourselves. But what if we COULD go back to the way things were? Don't worry, I'm not bringing my dating/sex blog out of retirement, but I am going to start using my Instagram page as a place to share words, and see how people respond to them. It’s a connection I haven’t felt in years, and I’m curious. I don’t care about the fact that this post is probably going to get a whopping 356 likes, I care about the fact that 356 people liked it enough to read it in its entirety.

One year ago today was a day when polar opposite emotions decided to invade the same 24 hours. Experiencing pure elation while I stood at my best friend's side while she married the love of her life... and, later, overwhelming sadness and shock, learning that yet another one of my friends from growing up had left this world. It was a peculiar 24 hours, to say the least. Going from tears of joy to being speechless in tears of disbelief at the sudden loss of such a loving soul. I'm by no means an expert when it comes to life, but here's what I do know: People are important. Never be afraid to tell someone you care. Look for the magic in the difficult days, because even if it feels a little dark, I promise you, there is magic there, too.
