Being Real and You’re Worth it

Being Real and You’re Worth it

Life is a journey. One that I feel like I’ve only recently started embracing. Not too long ago, I wasn’t able to see a future for myself. I didn’t believe in myself at all. I hated myself. I used to sob about how much I hated myself, lol. My mindsets were completely built of lies, sown into my life through insecurities, the world, constant comparison and a very broken past.

But over the course of time, God slowly kept peeling back the layers of lies and pain in my life. I started moving forwards. I started breaking out of my shell. I did things I’ve never done before. I didn’t feel great doing it. I didn’t think I looked cool doing it either. But I did it!

In a world where we often hear truth, we still refuse to believe it. It just took me awhile to start believing truth. You may have to walk through a lot of pain before your heart begins to believe again. And you will definitely still feel pain. You will still struggle. You will still feel like hope is a lie at times. A lot of times.

But you know that the past is the real liar. Because it tells you that it is your future. But it is not, friends. It is not.

If I could say something to anyone who might read this, I would just say this:

You are so loved that it’s ridiculous.

You are so accepted that it’s incredulous.

You are so beautiful that it’s mindboggling.

You are so chosen that it’s overwhelming.

You have a voice! And it’s meant to be heard! You have courage and strength! You are brave! You are strong! You are fun. Pursue your dreams. Because failure is success. Failure meant you took a step! That’s real living! Every step is a journey with Jesus. Dare to believe that He wants you to GO FOR IT. Whatever it looks like. 

Feeling uncomfortable, less than, or anything negative has no effect on your identity because it is not your identity. From before you were born, every detail of your life, every breath, every cell in your body, every hair on your head – He knew you, He chose you and He does not do anything that He regrets. Get to know Him. Not religion. Not what your parents told you. Not what fear told you. But Him. Give yourself grace. Grace to make mistakes, mess up, think wrong things (because you already do), to fail fearlessly. Give yourself grace because only in that place will you grow.


And just remember. You're going to fly.

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Ahem.
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
