I love this picture of my little Des. He has so much personality. Had a much needed coffee date with my friend @sarahwearsmanyhats who I adore. Everyone needs a friend like her. Honest, authentic, loving, fun, wise, silly and has cutie babies! I think something really special happens when you can just be present with people. I came home to another great phone conversation that was about finances and learning how to break through fears and habits. It can be so scary when you first are facing your giants. You may not think you can survive a confrontation with them. We don’t talk about things like that. We hide from them, and keep them in a box of secret things. I’m far from perfect, and I come out of a confused view of a lot of things, but I am so thankful for a husband who cares to learn and teach me how to face my fears over the years. We learn together as we go. With a lot of truth and unconditional love, we can. There is so much self-shame attached to whatever it is that claims place of the giant. I never thought I would be where I am today. There is a chance I don’t think I can go where I am heading as well. Looking at giants and saying enough is enough. Punch that giant right in the smoke screen that he is. Coming from someone who has struggled with anxiety all my life, the only thing really holding me back from facing my fear is myself...ouch. I love having mentors who care to invest in our well being, and I love being able to support someone else in their decision to seek freedom. We don’t have to be a lone, and we can start right now, right where we are at. My desire is to live a life so saturated with true freedom and grace that people can’t help but be pulled in. I’m not there yet, but I want to be and I’m working on it. Sounds like the most peaceful place to me.
