It's been a minute, but we are back! We really didn't take a break but rather, we annually have 4 intense weeks during the month of June where our full attention is on our non profit arm, Grit, Glam, & Guts, where we focus on empowering teen girls.
And, my God...
Ya'll I wasn't ready! The young ladies I encountered and the experience I had, as a grown woman, whoooochile, BLEW ME AWAY!
Seriously, the emotional intelligence, wit, compassion, and intellect these young ladies possess...I wasn't readyyyyyyy! Moreover, through this experience of working with this group of teens, God showed me what I'm capable of creating, what I'm called to do, and why I ALWAYS need to be ready and obedient.
During this time, God revealed crevices in my heart that needed to be healed. Specifically how I function in relationships with men I like or have a romantic interest in. God show me how it was connected back to my dad.
Me: How God?!?! I went through the Daddy issues phase years ago. It took everything out of me BUT Dad and I talked, reconciled, and hugged. We found the root of the issue and we've moved on.
I love Dad.
Well, I've learn, too many times to count, that God is smarter than me. So I went with it and simply followed where my spirit was leading.
Which was, my dad is still showing up in my romantic relationships...in an unhealthy way.
In this confession I share:
1) How I discovered my own childhood trauma - who knew?!?
2) The truth about my role in my extremely intense short term relationships
3) How my obedience played a role in someone else's healing
