Not Okay & Spicy Avocado Toast

Philippians 4:13 (easy)

I can do all these things because Christ makes me strong.

Today, I just want you to know that sometimes it’s okay to not be okay. I woke up this morning and cried; a full on sob-fest. The moment my feet hit the ground, I was crying. Every once in awhile, life just gets to be a lot to handle, and in those moments, it’s okay to crumble.

I’ve been carrying around so much anxiety over the past few months about the future; I’ve been wrestling with what’s next, I’ve been putting off moving forward on certain things, I’ve been re-evaluating my goals in my business, I’ve been totally struggling with time management and organization, and I’ve spent a lot of time traveling. And it just caught up to me.

Before this, I would have cried in the shower and not shared with anyone, brushed it under the rug and pretended to be fine, and carried on, making everything okay on the outside. But I’m finally learning to allow space for this mess. The messy is where faith is strengthened, connections are made, relationships are built, and where God finally has permission to show up. Not that He needs permission, but I also feel like sometimes He wants it from us.

” But he said to me: ‘I myself will help you and I will make you strong. I am everything that you need. When you are weak, then I will be powerful in you. Then I will show more completely how powerful I myself am (2 Corinthians 12:9 EASY).” This verse reminds me that God’s power is strongest when I am weak. Not fake-strong, or actually strong, but weak.

Crumbling.
Crying.
Fragile.
Uncertain.
A mess.
So I just want to let you know that being messy isn’t a sin, a crime, or a cause for shame. Instead, it’s an open door and an invitation to let God and others lift you up. And I promise you, the strongest women are the ones who ask for help, lean into others, and own their stuff.
