There’s a lot that I would like to say today but I’m going to do my best to keep it from turning into a novel. Lol ⠀ I’d like to take some time to reflect back over this year since tomorrow is my birthday and I’ll be turning 24.⠀ I can’t say that this year wasn’t hard. ⠀ I can’t say that I was always happy.⠀ I can’t say that nothing went wrong.⠀ I can’t say I had perfect health. ⠀ I can’t say that my life was perfect.⠀ I can’t say that I didn’t make mistakes. ⠀ I can’t say that it was the best year of my life.⠀ I can’t say that I didn’t let people down. ⠀

The thing is I am in a season where I feel like I am empty or dried up. I keep pouring out and out but in reality, I need to be filled up and poured into myself. Yes, I have a mentor. Yes, I go to church. Yes, I have a prayer life. Yes, I spend time in worship. Yes, I have friends that encourage me. But even with that, I have been feeling disconnected. I want to really dig into my Bible and grow closer to God.
Mentoring is an important part of life. It's something that I feel like everyone needs. The idea of someone consistently pouring into your life that you trust to give you advice, call you out when you need it and just be there for you is amazing. However, let me just tell you that being a mentor … Continue reading Mentoring Isn’t for the Faint of Heart
