  2. My friend Matt is leaving. Today is his last day here before moving to Missouri. He’s been pivotal for me through this season of depression and redemption. He saw me at my lowest, and now he’s leaving with me at my highest. You meet people in life, and it doesn’t matter the amount of time you’ve known each other. You can make an impact in small windows of time. It’s so important to remember that.
  3. I’m thankful for Mondays. It gets a bad rap, but it’s a fresh start. Every week this happens. A blank canvas. Another week to be whatever version of yourself you want to be. I’m thankful for this opportunity. I’m expecting a big week.

May 5, 2019

  1. Yesterday had a couple moments that would’ve usually brought me to a dark place. This time though, I barely felt them. My coping skills have been upgraded to 2.0, and I’m thankful for that. Tough little moments dont’ affect me the way they used to.
  2. I’m thankful for the Rockets win last night. For how aggressive they were and how focused Chris Paul was when the ball was in his hands.
  3. My health has been fluctuating lately. Makes me thankful for the days when I feel healthier. I’m thankful for the days when my health is so good that I don’t even think about my health.

May 4, 2019

  1. My workout session this morning with a trainer. I feel sore but stronger. It’s a great feeling.
  2. Today’s rainy day. I love rainy days when I don’t have any plans. Just to relax at home and watch movies.
  3. Last night’s pizza party at the park and watching a movie with friends.

May 3, 2019

  1. I’m thankful for the openings and closings of relationships and seasons. One ended yesterday. Another one will end in a few days. Some new ones started a few days ago. It’s a healthy revolving door of memories. A constant flow of people and moments that transition in and out of my life. It’s a beautiful thing.
  2. It’s Friday. Another weekend is waiting for me, with new adventures and opportunities. I’m excited to see where these next few days take me. A combination of busy days and empty days filled with potential and space to do anything.
  3. I’m thankful for this new confidence that I have each day. Through each conversation I have with someone, and the way that I’m approaching situations and life as a whole, I feel a sense of purpose and vision that isn’t slowing down. I’m thankful for this clarity and understanding on the direction of my life.

May 2, 2019

  1. Counseling session this morning. There’s several things I need to update her on. Things that I’m excited about, and things I need help working through. That’s what it’s for. Another tool in the toolbox.
  2. Thursday church service tonight. It used to be called Deeper. Now it’s called First Thursday. I’ll always call it Deeper though, because that’s what it’s about. I look forward to going deeper into the word tonight.
  3. I released a new shirt last night. I’ve released a dozen shirts over the years, but this is the first one I’ve made for myself. Be the light” is what the shirt says. And I’m excited to start wearing that on my chest.

May 1, 2019

  1. I’m thankful for a new month. A fresh start. A new perspective. Each month we get a First”. I’m thankful for the opportunity to begin again.
  2. The conversation that I just had with a co-worker/mentor. Great advice and direction. Speaking out and letting people know my heart has brought me so far lately.
  3. All the projects that I’m working on. To have so many things I’m working on at one time keeps me excited and focused on the future. So thankful for this.

April 30, 2019

  1. Community. If I have one thing to be thankful for this month, it’s community.
  2. The amount of work and creating I’m able to do on just an iPad. The month of April really shows me this.
  3. The way that I’m memorizing all the worship songs that I listen to daily. The songs are becoming part of my identity.

April 29, 2019

  1. Water and black coffee. No sugars. No sodas. No creamer. When you fall in love with just water, and just coffee, with nothing added, drinking becomes so much easier. It’s very accessible. I love that it’s all I drink most days.
  2. The phone call I just had with a friend. We talked a lot about speaking voices and being motivated and my packing skills and how I pack each morning for an adventure.
  3. The counter in my kitchen. Huge open space with nothing on it. It’s been my new favorite place to setup. My iPad is opened ready to type, my bag is next to it, opened up, making sure I have everything for the day. Water and coffee is on the right side of it. It then becomes my standing desk. To create and plan.

April 28, 2019

  1. The group of friends that came with me today to visit House of Prayer. Two churches on Sunday morning, and now with a group of friends joining me, is such a great feeling.
  2. All the familiar faces I saw at HOP that came and said hello. I’m so thankful that I’ll be able to build new relationship with these people.
  3. I didn’t sleep but an hour last night, because of a recording session, but I feel full of energy today, and I feel inspired and on fire. Amazing day.

April 27, 2019

  1. My trip to Franklinton today. A visit to my past. I lived here once, and haven’t been back since. Going take pictures and videos of places I spent time at.
  2. My group text with my two childhood friends. We never see each other, but we seem to still text back and forth every day. Through the debates, and fun arguments about sports and movies, I know there’s love there.
  3. My morning routine of, as soon as my eyes open, I tell Siri to play worship music. And I listen for an hour or so. It changes the atmosphere of my morning.

April 26, 2019

  1. The conversation I had with my friend last night. It wasn’t planned. She called. I stopped by. We talked. I was able to pour into her life the way she usually does for me. The student has become the teacher.
  2. My plans for this weekend. Lately, all weekends have been an adventure, and this one is no different. Traveling, videos, Avengers, two churches.
  3. The mentors that I have in my life. As I watched a video on RightNow Media this morning, I was reminded of the older and wiser people I have in my life that I’m so thankful for: Mrs. Tracy, Mr. Bill, and Mr. Joe are the three that come to mind.

April 25, 2019

  1. Being back home after a few days out of town. As much fun as I have traveling, it’s always nice to get back to my normal routine.
  2. The Houston Rockets advanced to the second round last night. I’m thankful that Chris Paul is having another shot in the playoffs. At the root of it, I’m thankful that I enjoy watching his games so much.
  3. I’m thankful for seasons changing. They come and go. Moods shift. What brings contentment now, won’t work the next time. I’m thankful that with each season, I’m given new tools and perspective.

April 24, 2019

  1. New Orleans. People travel from around the world to see a place that is right next to me. There’s so much beauty and culture here.
  2. A camera. Allowing me to capture the world as I see it, and share my perspective in creative ways.
  3. My church and the community it’s given me on a daily basis. I’ve learned how important it is not to do life alone.

April 23, 2019

  1. Hanging out with Kameron yesterday, learning about his tech and toys, and him handing over his Canon camera for me to capture more stories.
  2. Being able to play basketball at U.N.O yesterday. No matter the city I’m in, I want to be intentional about finding a way to play basketball.
  3. Cody Carnes song, Nothing Else. I’m sorry, when I’ve just gone through the motions. […] I’m sorry, when I’ve come with my agenda. I’m sorry, when I forgot that you’re enough.”

April 22, 2019

  1. Yesterday as a whole. Church service. Breakfast with a friend. Amazing time with my family. All the pictures. So many memories. So much joy.
  2. Last night’s play that I attended called, My Redeemer Lives.” It was creative, collaborative, intense, and beautiful.

  2. Janea for mentioning Bob Goff enough times that when I walked into Rae Lynn’s house, I saw the book and knew I needed it.
  3. Bob Goff for writing this book. I only read the first chapter so far, but he might be my favorite author now. It’s given me comfort knowing we’re all rough drafts of the people we’re still becoming.”

April 20, 2019

  1. Elevation Worship’s new album, Paradoxology. It’s been on repeat for the past two days. It’s been my soundtrack.

April 19, 2019

  1. These lyrics: Can’t go back to the beginning. Can’t control what tomorrow will bring. But I know here in the middle, is the place where you promise to be.”
  2. GPS technology, allowing me to go on adventures without needing a paper map.
  3. My conversation with Ms. Robin last night. I’m learning how important it is to let people older and wiser than me speak into my life.

April 18, 2019

My first thought was upset that I couldn’t get the smell out yet, but then I realized, as I’m sitting in the office, that it brings back an amazing memory. It brings me right back to that moment with my friends.
  3. My MACV-1 boots. I wear them daily: for work, to church, to the beach, to climb trees, and whatever else life throws at me.

  2. His wisdom, guidance and love for everyone around him. At times, it’s easy to forget that he’s younger than me. Sometimes it feels like he’s my big brother.
