PEACE: Something I haven’t felt often, and when I do, I’m truly grateful.
If you know me, you know my mind is always wondering, I’m chasing the next adventure, always following my heart filled with many passions, afraid of settling down and of missing out on all the Life there is to experience.
I lived a lot of the last couple of years feeling the urge to be somewhere else than where I was, hoping someday I would be at peace with where I am at in the present moment.
This past year was not easy after leaving Africa in 2021. Lots of emotions, hard days, feeling burnt out, exhausted, and defeated.
Even in the midst of wonderful memories, laughter, good times with family and friends, and fighting hard to heal and find joy again…I still felt like i lost a piece of who I was, finding it hard to feel burning passion again.
Deciding to go back to Africa and visit @yahweh_children_ministries was the best thing I impulsively did ☺️ and was the beginning of feeling like my passionate self again and finding PEACE
Not only was I able to be filled with so much joy and love from my kiddos and the wonderful people of Uganda, I was also able to be still and present with myself and God.
I was able to just BE!
I was able to feel ALIVE again!
Then there was @christianyouthconference for two weeks where I was surrounded by such an amazing community of people who are part of my family.
This is where I was started to realize that I feel PEACE heading into this next chapter of my life. I feel like I’m exactly where I need to be.
I can’t tell you the last time I truly felt peace about planting roots close to home and feeling good about it.
*I’m moving into a new apartment in Nashua, NH
*I’m ready to love on these kiddos and show my support at work
*I’m excited to be more involved in Life Church in Manchester and serve in the area
*Im happy I can be closer to family and friends and continue to live life with people I love most
I’m at PEACE with it all and where I’m at and that I am truly grateful for!
