Hey there, I’m Genesis! I’m 20 years old, am obsessed with coffee, and love to blog about Jesus while encouraging and empowering young women to believe that they are not just enough, but rather Worthwhile. Follow me on my Instagram for more behind the scenes of my life as a blogger.
If you've been following this blog for a while, you know we always talk about tips and go in-depth about ways you can love yourself and know your self-worth. From mental health to self-care, to boys and friendships, we talk about it all! However, I feel as though there's one main thing that we all need to know when it comes to truly loving ourselves and knowing our self-worth. It's almost as if it's the key ingredient to having confidence, self-respect, and loving yourself inside out. It's the secret to getting a glimpse of how God loves us, and how we can take a portion of that love and give it to ourselves.
Sometimes our life won't look the way we planned it to, and God might call us to do something outside of the norm. It can be scary, and even a bit unlogical. Such was the case for me, but it ended up bringing me joy and a clearer vision of life.
Now that it's starting to get warmer in Arizona, that means it's the springtime. And springtime means spring cleaning. I don't know where you stand on this, but I personally love to get rid of and declutter stuff. I feel as if it's important to make room for new things in our lives. To freshen up our rooms, houses and so on. But while spring cleaning is important for our homes, the same thing needs to be done with our minds. So often we can give far too much attention to our outward health and neglect our internal and mental health. We have so much negativity, and downcast thoughts and beliefs in our minds, and this needs to be the year we clean them out!
As I continue my journey of singleness, the Lord has opened my eyes to new lessons about being single and moving forward healthily. I say this because I feel as if we can all feel as if we move on at some point, but we don't move on the right way. We can be bitter as we move on, become numb to the situation, or be indifferent so long as we don't see that other person again. But in the last few months, God has been teaching me how to move on without feelings of remorse being a part of letting go of a previous relationship. Would I say that I've got it all figured out? Not by a very long shot. However, in my last blog, I mentioned how sometimes you have to be vulnerable enough to share what even you are learning as you teach it. Is it easy? No. Is it necessary? Yes, because I'm not alone in these feelings and lessons.
As a blogger, I have to face tons of challenges when it comes to my ministry. One of the challenges I have to face is being real when I share blogs. If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that I never share anything that I don't go through or haven't gone through. Even as a lifestyle blogger, I don't share things I am not learning as well and I never put up a front as if I'm someone who has life figured out. Even with that in mind, being vulnerable and real on this platform is always a challenge.
