I never know what to say in the caption section. I see Instagram as more of a visual diary or your own personal art gallery. I have so many photos to share with you, but I’m worried about being insincere. I’ve found myself putting off posting things I find beautiful because I can’t think of a “cool” or audience-pleasing caption. I get the sense that a lot of Instagramers embellish real-life and make up stories to fit their photo. Which I’m sure everyone (including me) has been guilty of at some point. But am I the only one who feels this way?
“Te alabaré, oh Jehová, con todo mi corazón; Contaré todas tus maravillas. Me alegraré y me regocijaré en ti; Cantaré a tu nombre, oh Altísimo.”

Gratitude changes everything. I have been going through a time in my life I’m going to call a “learning period”. It’s a time that has made me frustrated, sad, angry and very unproductive. This has been going on for quite some time now, and yesterday two ✌🏻 things showed up in my life that shook me. One was a podcast from @alexikonn & @mimiikonn and the other was an article from @ryanholiday (links to both of these in my stories). The messaging behind both of these pieces were so EYE OPENING 🤩Today I feel like the blinders have been removed and I am a completely new person. I don’t know these three individuals (and might never meet them), but to say they have had an impact on me, is a major understatement. We only get one chance at life. If we blow it or don’t follow our passions, we don’t get a do over. Think about that...WE DONT GET A DO OVER! Live in gratitude for what you have and NEVER stop chasing your passions. 🖤

yesterday afternoon trey said, “Also are u going on a trip soon or no?!?” its been about two months and I didn’t really notice until this week. I miss being on a plane, but damn it’s been so long since I’ve let myself miss something like that. Back to back trips are dreamy as hell, but after five, you’re just like ready to sit and hug your dog for 36 days.
remember to let yourself miss things. intentionally create the space. with your boyfriend. with your fav hobby. with your family. with your projects. with your fav foods. don’t leave them behind, but jeez stop suffocating them.
What do you need to let yourself miss?

Three things I miss very much.
2. Irish drinking
3. Oh & long vacations with my babe.
We hope to travel abroad sometime within the next couple of years because daydreaming about exploring new places like New Zealand & Australia just isn’t making the cut anymore. We really just need to be there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Does the travel bug ever leave?! Uh, no.

This blurry iPhone picture is going to see the light of day after all. I picked this pin up going into a ride at Hollywood Studios. Actually, I picked up “I’m celebrating marriage” and then realized my mistake, so I grabbed another one. “I’m celebrating my birthday” was a failure too, but then I found this one. And this picture isn’t exciting. Or a beautiful travel picture. But it is important.
Tonight, God reminded me of how blessed I am. Like really really blessed. This is my dream life. And I didn’t even realize I was living it. I was wasting it away complaining about the little losses. Woe is me, I’m not debt free yet. Woe is me I don’t get to go to Europe this year. Woe is me my job is hard sometimes. Woe is me I have allergies. Woe is me life hasn’t always been good. Seriously. Little losses. But I always have food on the table, nice clothes, a car that I love, the cutest little apartment, the best dog, the best friends, the best church, the best job, and the best family. Seriously. So blessed.
Tonight He brought someone into my path that does not have the things I mentioned above. Things that many of you reading have. They aren’t as fortunate. And I needed that. Even in America, people are struggling to keep their heat on, feed their families, put gas in their cars. And in other countries, even worse. This person was more of a blessing to me than I ever could be for them. And I pray our paths cross again very soon. .
I pray I never take for granted this life God gave me. I pray that I spend every second of every day showing people His mercy and grace. I pray that the gifts and blessings He gave me can be used to show His love in ways I could not imagine. And I pray that I never forget to celebrate this crazy life. 🖤

I'm at that point in the year where I'm so over the cold and I can't stop day dreaming about my next summer vacation.
Anyone else feeling this way too?!🙋🏼♀️

all about them details 💫
the concept stores in Seoul are on a whole other level to anything I’ve seen before. Each store is like an art exhibition just for one product, like a hand cream or perfume. My personal favourite was the store for Gentle Monster, which resulted in us walking unwittingly into a room of dancing crows 😂
Did you know I nearly died when I was 2?⠀
✨ I’ve got a few new faces here so I thought I’d reintroduce maself! I’m Amanda! ⠀
➡️ I have 2 degrees: I went to Bond Uni and studied a bachelor of Psych and Crim (that was a ride), and a Masters in Finance...and I use nothing from my degrees (except some financial knowledge on investing)⠀
➡️ My pet peeve is wasting my time ⠀
➡️ I’m a huge gym junkie (ask me about my workout routine)⠀
➡️ I have a guilty pleasure for boybands (where are my Westlife lovers?!) and Hannah Montana (not even ashamed)⠀
➡️ I’m 27 - a LOT of people think I’m early 20s but sadly no. Just to clear that up. ⠀
➡️ I have my grade 7 in practical piano, grade 5 in music theory and I sing and play guitar (unfortunately you’ll no longer find my singing videos on YouTube 😂).⠀
Your turn girls! Tell me one fun fact about you so I can get to know you better! 💗⠀

This dreary New York weather is making me wish for outdoor restaurants in the summer 🍽 #kazimierz
... Well I was definitely exhausted from yesterday. My day has consisted of relaxation and eating freely. No matter how much you try to hold back, sometimes your cravings take over. Sitting back and deciding what movie to watch now. By the way, this was the very first image that was captured in York yesterday ...
