Friend, I know what it feels like to be entirely overwhelmed, anxious and literally breaking from the weight of your surroundings. I have been there, the only one seeming like they want to do the work to heal, but aren’t sure which direction to go or how to even begin.

If you are stuck and scared, this is for you.
If you are trying to break generational chains, this is for you.
If you are healing and hurting all at once, this is for you.
If you are saying “no” for the first time, this is for you.
If you have lost a community, family, or friends in pursuit of yourself, this is for you.
If you are loving yourself for the very first time, and seeing just how deeply God loves you, this is for you.
I can’t wait to hear from you about your experience reading ‘Loyal to a Fault’. God has both blessed my heart and refined it tremendously through the process of authoring my first book. The countdown is on!
With thanksgiving behind us, something that I encounter a lot is “I wish that I would’ve said this…”. When you are on this journey, you tend to reflect backwards a lot in your life – because a lot of this process requires that right? But what happens when that thinking in the past becomes more of a hinderance than it is a help? Friends, forgive yourself for what you wish you would have said, but didn’t. In the heat of moments, in the thick of situations, you are doing the very best that you can. Over time this work does become easier BUT that never means it become perfect. There is no way we will always have the right thing to say. There is no way that you won’t want to back track and wish you had included something, said something more gracefully, or even wish you hadn’t said anything at all. This isn’t because your boundary work is flawed…
it’s because you are human.
Celebrate your progress, no matter how small it may seem. Forgive yourself for the moments you wish you could redo, because in those very moments, you were learning, growing, and becoming more resilient. Embrace your humanity, and let it be a reminder that your journey is authentic, raw, and beautifully imperfect – just like all of us. Cheers to forgiveness of self, we all need some good practice!
I know that this week can be both joyful and difficult for many as we navigate plans and people, but especially as we continue to navigate our boundaries in new settings. I created videos about Boundaries over the Holidays that you receive as a bonus when you preorder ‘Loyal to a Fault,’ and I wanted to share one of those videos here with you today on the blog in case your heart is in need as you prepare for the holidays.
Go into this week with peace and confidence. My heart is with you this week as your family gears up for what I hope is a beautiful holiday spent with those you love most! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
