While I definitely do not profess to have it altogether when it comes to dating, what I will tell you is that I have learned a TON in the process of trying to navigate the murky waters of getting to know someone pre-marriage. Add in trying to date for the glory of the Lord and, PHEW, there are endless learnings!
Ugh. Dating. NOT THAT again! It seems to be the topic that everyone gets so reluctant to talk about… doesn’t it? Someone brings up the topic of dating and immediately we go into rolling our eyes and letting out huge sighs as we are reminded of some of our unfortunate past experiences with dating… am I right? I hear you. I have been through my fair share of heartbreaks, frustrations, annoyances, disrespect, and poor communication. Sigh.
Oh friends my heart is just BEAMING with excitement about this lovelier than LOVELY post. Today I am talking abut something that I literally could NOT live without: my #girltribe. The #tribe that has my back no matter what. The #tribe that takes joy in loving me at my lowest. The #tribe that sees me at my core and loves me FOR my imperfections. This #tribe did not happen overnight, but it did happen intentionally as I spent time discovering the truth about building life giving friendships.
Ahhh yes, friends. Indeed it is that time of the year and while many of you may be feeling oh so thrilled about the holiday season… some of you may also not so much be looking forward to one particular aspect of this time of year: BEING SINGLE. We all know that the holidays evoke endless amounts of cheery emotion, but one aspect that seems to jolt just about all of us single holiday goers is the thought of love. The “being single” factor just seems to hit a bit harder when you see all the couples cuddling by the fire, and buying one another adorable presents. Am I right?
