our world is kind of awful
No. Our world is great. For every one person that plants a bomb, you have hundreds more running a marathon. For every one person that makes a joke about the dead and dying, you have thousands more donating blood, offering prayers, and volunteering their time. Things like this are the fault of single individuals who make violent, loud statements. We just have to make sure that the statements of the good are louder.
whenever someone says something stupid i just stare at them for a really long time.
rule #1 of being a white 15 year old girl
- shut up
Hi. School has taken over my life. Tumblr has met its match.
Things I will never understand
1. People that brag about getting high/drunk
2. People that call themselves Christian and support abortion
3. People who prefer PC over Mac
5. The Teletubbies
This is honestly one of the wisest girls I’ve ever known. Beautiful… so beautifully true.
Transformation for the Sake of a Calling…
I have never been one to enjoy spotlight. In fact I have been known to have pretty intense social anxiety.
When everything began to fall apart, I realized that I was going to have to do this on my own. This meant going against everything that was comfortable for me and becoming the sole member in He Is We. So not only was I no longer “sharing the spotlight” but now I am running every social network of the band.
I kept asking God:
“Why would you choose someone with anxiety? Someone who feels they can’t do this alone?”
I started running the He Is We Facebook and communicating with everyone myself. The same goes for the Twitter and youtube account. I have had so much going on and I missed the point of why He has been doing this…
I realized it’s because when we are called, He equips us for whatever battle or journey that is ahead of us and He showed me the TRUE meaning of He Is We.
It showed me that even with my anxiety and health issues, I was not alone and that my story could MEAN something. I had to be an example to everyone that He can take someone who feels inadequate and prepare them for something bigger in this life.
It took me going through the assault, PTSD, anxiety attacks, betrayal, self doubt and then my disease to FINALLY become the person that stands before you now: a confident leader. Without being thrown to the ground and beaten, while continuously getting back up, how could I have known I had the strength? We don’t know our breaking point until we reach it.
The fear of failing has crossed my mind. But as I have gotten to know each and every beautiful person who has supported me, the idea of failure now rings impossible. As I was enduring hell and recovering from the devastation of so much, you were all there waiting for me with open arms and encouragement.
I guess the point of this blog is simple: I will fight for what I believe in until I have left this earth. Hopefully this ordeal has allowed you guys to get to know me the way I feel I know each of you. I can’t wait to see all of your wonderful faces on tour sometime soon.
My dad would take me to the gym with him as a kid and say: “When you feel like your body has given up, do 5 more.”
I have kept this with me in all things. When you feel like you need to give up and throw in the towel, hold on for just a little bit longer because you ARE strong enough.
