Collage, Year 2! Happy Birthday to Lucy - my clutch friend and Mandiana-mate! In Year 2, she helped me out when my stuff was stolen, wrote me a postcard from Europe while I was back home, and has listened to endless hours of my ramblings. We're almost there, and I'm so happy to have made it this far with you! #peacecorps#peacecorpsguinea#year2#joyeuxanniversaire
🇷🇴 „Bicaz, marți, 22 octombrie 1918,
(…) Vizită la Boyle, ale cărui eforturi în chestiunea Carol dau roade, numai că îi sperie pur şi simplu pe cei pe care-i ajută cu energia lui formidabilă. Trebuie să-l temperez! Dar cel mai rău e că simpatizez enorm cu metodele lui, care ar fi şi ale mele dacă aş fi bărbat şi dacă aş fi liberă. În esenţă, ne înţelegem unul pe altul, iată explicaţia prieteniei noastre extraordinare care unora le pare bizară, ba chiar îi face să strâmbe din nas cu dispreţ. Unor astfel de oameni li se pare aproape grotesc că un om îşi poate pune toată energia, toată inima într-un lucru din care nu scoate absolut nici un câştig, un lucru pe care nu are chiar nici un motiv să-l facă şi pe care totuşi îl îndeplineşte din inimă şi din suflet. Când încep să strâmbe din nas, eu păstrez tăcerea, nu are rost să încerci să-i faci pe cei din jur să înţeleagă ceva atât de mare – Boyle e un fel de Übermensch – dar un supraom în sensul cel mai bun al cuvântului.”
Heart shaped eyes.
🇬🇧 “Bicaz, Tuesday, October 22nd, 1918,
(…) I visited Boyle, whose efforts with the Carol issue are showing results, although he simply scares those he is trying to help with his formidable energy. I have to temper him! The worst thing is that I genuinely sympathise with his methods, which would also be my methods if I were a man and free. In essence, we understand each other – this is the explanation of our extraordinary friendship that so many perceive as bizarre and even frown upon with disdain. Such people perceive as something grotesque that a man can put all his energy, all his heart, in something from which he derives no advantage, in something he has no reason to do and yet he does with all his heart and soul. When they start to wrinkle their noses, I keep quiet. There is no point in trying to convince those around me to understand something so great – Boyle is a sort of Übermensch, but a supra-man in the best sense of the word.”
How do you make the darkness seem so bright? ☀️ #year2#mocha

✨Look forward nothing behind you is your business
✨Exactly 1 year ago today I packed up a container of my things and drove to Dallas, TX to be greeted by a new job and a friend’s air mattress (S/o to @shawtiel_elizabeth) I had no idea how this would all play out but I knew Dallas was next in God’s plan for me. .
When I left Louisiana, it was the most scared I had ever been in my life I had no family in Dallas & a subpar job I was confused as to how it would allow me to get a place of my own. Everything in my being screamed this wouldn’t work. Everything in my being yelled go home and wait before you move. .
But when I saw downtown Dallas Oct 22 2017 I felt peace... and I mean that soul humming type of peace. That ‘I totally don’t have a clue to what is going to happen next but I’m here Lord’ peace.
Oddly enough I wrote in my journal I’m out of the boat. Like Peter I got out of my comfort zone because that’s where my purpose was but now after a year I hear “Now walk” .
It’s not enough for me to get out of the boat but I have to learn to defy all the laws of gravity and buoyancy (& what honestly feels like good common sense) and walk on the water. The best part is Peter did it with help of our perfect Creator. In Year 2 it’s time to walk and while walking focus my eyes on the One who walked on the water before me.
I may not get everything right but I surely will focus on the one who gets it right every time. .
So walk on water ladies and gentlemen whatever that looks like in your life. Whatever comfort zone you’d prefer to stay in... leave it. Whatever situation it’s easier to live with versus heal from... separate from it. .
It’s my walking season... I’ve been out the boat for sometime but definitely afraid to take the steps on the water but however will I learn what my God is capable of it I don’t step. ✨ 🗣 Get out the boat, Then Walk!
