am i comfortable in my box? i think not. i'm tired of my mundane. but when the times comes for me to break down the walls i suddenly find that i love the comfort and safety of normalcy. 


why?

Am i really that afraid of newness, of the unknown?
I never thought i was. 
till now.  

but then i do the very thing that i am terrified of doing and i find that it wasn't worth all that worry and fear. 

So my question to you today is this. is there something that you really want to do but are afraid of. Please stop. Don’t let that hold you back from your dream. Because if we never did anything that took us out of our box what kind of life would that be? 

Also this

courage is not courage if you are not afraid.

 Break down the walls of that box, once you can see the outside you’ll never want to go back. I promise. 
yesterday you were afraid and today you feel a bit more ready - so tell me dear what changed in you?  are you ready for the adventure of the plunge?

Thoughts




my thoughts are fearful.
But God's love casts out all fear.
i feel alone, but when we have God we are never alone.
I forget to trust.

God says to trust is to have faith.
I say my faith is so small.
if little things worry and  terrify me how can I handle a storm?
MY Child. God says 
- what do you think I am preparing you for in this small trial. 
I am strengthening you for GREATER battles.
I am weak - i think to myself- 
that's okay because i am strong -God whispers to me- 

I WILL BE YOUR STRENGTH 


(idk these are just some of my emotions that i have been working through)

December is over and so is 2018! Yikes 


HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
for the past year i've posted 87 times! i really, really love blogging! it inspires me and i truly feel comfortable sharing and being myself. 

THE NEW STUFF THAT HAPPENED 
So like 2018 was a fantastic year. (I think my favorite so far) but I can’t wait to see what new memories 2019 will hold. Looking back it’s crazy to see all the change that has happened. Dude life is crazy... 

I went to Africa. AFRICA Ugh I can’t even believe all of the crazy things we experienced. The stories I could tell lolol. But it was so good for me! 
I took over our garden this year and planted everything myself. It was awesome. I can’t wait till spring! 
All of the amazing memories I made this year with my fave people. (Sometimes I just scroll through my pictures and want to cry lol)
I GRADUATED!!!! DID A POST ABOUT IT HERE I CAN’T EVEN EXPRESS HOW GREAT IS IS TO BE FINISHED WITH SCHOOL!!!

My baby sis was born this summer (that makes 7 of us) and she has stolen our hearts ♥️ 
AND TOP OF THAT i spent a weekend camping out on the beach with friends 

And there was so much more.. days. Summer. Laughter. Moments. Driving with the windows open. Blasting a good song. 

       
So I guess this post is saying that I’m really excited about 2019 i read some of this past year’s blog post and realized that my style has changed. I’m much more lifestyle than I used to be. It’s kind of crazy to see the change in my thoughts and perspective. Though I’ll still be child at heart. Just ask any of my friends. Lolol DREAMLAND IS STILL MY HOME. 

 what I’m trying to say is that my eyes have opened up and I’m seeing a bit more of what’s in what. I’m finding out what 19 year old Janelle is and what she likes doing. Its pretty cool, but a little scary at the same time.  I had a lot of bad things in 2018 but a lot of beautiful things too. I’ve been learning to readjust my priorities a bit and LOVE THE LITTLE MOMENTS. 

2019 is going to be lit.
