What Love Really Means



What Love Really Means.

Haven’t we all questioned who will love me for me? For all my flaws, all my mistakes, all the darkest parts within me? Who will never leave me and take me for all I am? Who will love me unconditionally?

I believe we all long to be loved. At times we’re afraid we’re unlovable. We hide so many parts of us away because we’re afraid no one would love us if they saw our struggles. If they saw all the pain and turmoil we carry within. If they knew everything we thought.

There is Someone though who LOVES us despite our failures, despite our messed up thoughts, despite how many times we’ve betrayed Him and put Him aside. His love is unconditional and when we finally can wrap our minds around that, perhaps then, we can learn to love ourselves as well and see us how He sees us and learn to love others unconditionally as well.

Dear friend,

I hate to see you hurting. To know every day you’re crying, hopeless, and don’t want to carry on.
I wish I had all the words to say to take it all away. I wish I could shield you in my arms so you’d never have to feel pain. I wish they’d open up their eyes and see this isn’t a game. 
There are no 1 ups or continues, only game over and by then its too late. 
What I can say is that I’ve been in your shoes, I have felt that despair. 
I can say I think you’re the reason He spared me. 
To tell you I know it’s hard but it’s not permanent. 
I’m here to listen and try and help as much as I can. 
I’m here to tell you you’re worth so much more than you think.
I’m here to tell you that so many people would be heartbroken if you weren’t around. 
I’m here to make a fool of myself just to see you laugh. 
Please hold your promise and stay. 
I’m here and I love you and can’t imagine this world without you.

Things to do in Traffic



 Things to Do When Stuck In Traffic

1.Blast your radio up and sing like you're at your own concert (if you don't enjoy that at least you'll get a kick out of the people's reactions).


2. Pop in an audio book :)

3. Pick your nose and pretend to fling it at the car next to you :)

4. Call a Friend (headphones, bluetooth, both hands on wheels of course ;)

5. Pray, Talk to God.

6. Talk to yourself. Work on time to practice positive self-talk, evaluate where you're at, what needs to be changed and how you can change that.

Here are only a few to help those long drives and time in traffic! 
I would love to hear any of your guys ideas so feel free to share :)

Have a great drive,
<3Lex

Dare to be Beautifully Different


There's something beautiful about things in places they don't normally belong. 
There's always been something so intriguing that's drawn me in and captured my attention.
As if though for a moment reality has escaped to a place I've only dreamt of, a place once unattainable.

Perhaps at times I feel like these pictures.
I don't always belong or fit in to the picture, 
but even in all of my out of place areas, 
together, 
as a whole, 
there's a beauty about that difference.

At times we try and fit a cookie cutter mold
that people have laid out of what they think we should be
Where they think we belong, or how we should look.
We get caught up in the struggle of who we are and who we're
told to be that we forget the beauty in being different. 

Perhaps this post makes sense to no one but me, and I'm okay with that.
I'm glad I just get to share these  pictures with you. :)

An amazing depiction of this is in Augustana's Boston video where he's playing the piano on the ocean shore and the water is crashing in and piano's all around, such beauty.
watch here

Have a wonderful night lovelies,
and remember,
dare to be beautifully different.
It's that difference thats so intriguing about you :)
