Instagram Round Up + Life Lately

I decided to make more of an effort to upload photos using my canon more often then the iPhone itself onto my instagram. I have a nice blend going for this round up of iPhone and non iPhone photos for you!

Life's been weird, I was having a serious talk with one of my good friends about how I found myself guarded but yet not guarded enough. Isn't that funny? I don't want to let someone in yet get over attached at the same exact time. And then I end up with a mess of emotions and I'm crying into my Starbucks coffee cup. After getting denied in the major I wanted, loosing touch with who I thought would be my best friend forever… I am afraid to hope I think.

After somehow letting myself tear up while letting her into my fears and hatred of feelings (seriously that's what messes with us.. it's when you catch feelings for anything.) I ended up leaning on the one thing I could hold all my trust on… God. No matter how many people disappear from my life, no matter how bad my fear is that it will happen again.. God will never leave, will never fail, will stay constant. I found myself in the midst of an impromptu worship session with flooding tears it came to me stop fighting the current, and let it over take you. God will get you and direct you when needed but in the words of one of my favorite songs "If His grace is an ocean we're all sinking." He's got me. He is still good and worthy of praise. I may be afraid of failing, getting used to something and it leaving, or of feelings in general… I never need to be afraid of trusting my life with my God.

Lately I've been loving Demi's new song Stone Cold.
I had a buff chick salad sandwich and it changed my life (also if you ever go to Starbucks for breakfast get the gouda, bacon and cheese!!).
I finally switched from a more neutral shade to a dark burgundy on my nails and I am loving it (I also finally let them grow!!)
I'm loving the newest season of AHS, Evan Peters is blowing my mind.

Hope life is great, thanks for letting me rant ;)

  14. Brooke, it's definitely something to worship God in times of trial and confusion. I'm blessed to have friends who are all rooted in God so we're always at least on the same page of one thing. I find myself extremely guarded and it's got to come down.

    God bless you. <3
