Love Hard. Live Abundantly

Updated: Sep 3, 2018

Welcome to the #lovehardliveabundantly official blog

I've gone back and forth with myself about starting this. When I talked to my bestie her words were "I can't believe you don't have a blog already." This process can be scary - starting anything online where you need to build community can bring up all kinds of negative self talk in your mind. If you have ever dealt with low self esteem or rejection issues there is this internal struggle that happens. However, life takes us through many transitions. I have survived many different transitions by the grace of God, and given recent events I have decided to get passed that initial anxiety that comes when beginning something new.

Life is too short to dwell on what makes you a little scared. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love drives out fear."1 John 4:18

The fact of the matter is you can spend your life wondering what could have been, or you can love yourself enough to go after what you want. I spent a lot of time worrying about making everybody else happy and making excuses for why I couldn't go after the things I really wanted.

What things in your life are you putting on hold for other people, or because of negative self talk? Living an abundant life is available for all of us. Love yourself enough to take a chance on your desires. Love yourself and others intentionally. Live everyday doing something towards the things you truly desire to do.
