Mills Moments Update
To be honest with y'all, logging off & soaking up real life experiences has been SO good for me lately. I have been enjoying time outside, reading on the porch, doing projects around the house & taking time to do more of what I love. I have had some fun trips these past few months, enjoyed lots of time with friends & have taken breaks to rest & just be still.
Y'all know I love my beach trips & exploring different places! I went down to Destin for about a week & loved being away with friends. It was also so nice having time to sit by the pool & relax at the beach by myself! I could live at the beach year round & be just fine! It was so fun getting away & having a quick little beach trip after work was all done in PCB for the UnWINEd event! I shared lots of fun things we did in town on my Instagram highlights too, so be sure to check it out in case you missed it!!
I got back from Austin a few weeks ago & it was sooo much fun! I went with a group of friends & we went to so many cool-vibed restaurants, unique hotels & enjoyed ALL of the food & drinks! I also added that highlight to my instagram page as well for y'all!
Now I am packing up for a solo road trip to Mississippi to get away for a bit & visit somewhere new! Y'all drop your favorite car-karaoke songs in the comments below for me to listen to on the way!
Once I get back from there, my momma is coming to town & we are headed out to Cabo San Lucas with the girls in my family! My Aunt Wendey, cousins Charlee & Kaylee, then my mom & I are all going for a fun family beach trip!!
I love all of these fun memories I am making & again, am so thankful for the opportunity to experience so many fun trips & times with amazing people! However, time alone has also been so incredibly healthy & happy for me.
Taking time to be by yourself is healthy & good for the heart & soul. Even when life doesn't go as planned, or things happen that you wouldn't expect, finding peace in it all is the only thing you can do. God has definitely been my trusting source lately & I feel so close to Him. I have said a million times how I always follow & trust God's plan, even when it doesn't seem fair or what I saw for myself. His way is best, always.
I have been listening to more of what His Word says & less of what the world says about singleness. To any single girls out there reading this, there is no right way to go through a breakup or to start dating again. You will feel sad some days, then happy the next. You may miss your ex, or maybe you know you made the right decision. Either way, breakups can be difficult, especially when you did everything you could to make it work. One thing I have learned is that you cannot love the potential of a person, when their patterns speak louder volumes. You have to do what is best for your own heart & mind, even if it really, truly doesn't seem fair. Every emotion, thought & feeling is valid. It is all about healing, learning & the exploration of life for yourself, then following what you trust God is doing for your path as well. My biggest advice for everyone, single, dating, married, or anyone at all:
FOLLOW GOD'S PATH. Anything else will simply not turn out or work in your favor. He knows best & will lead you if you TRULY listen to Him & follow His way!!
All this to say, I am feeling good & closer to God than I have been in a long time. I have been finding more of myself that got lost along the way, or may have been hidden without me even recognizing it. I am so thankful for friends, family & y'all that I get to share these amazing, crazy, sometimes sad & unexpected twists & turns of life with! I will continue to share my life & each step that comes along with it, good or bad. However, I will be sharing as I am ready. Specifics & details don't need to be listed out or known to all & not every "Why?" or "What happened?" needs to be asked or answered. This is me sharing what I am comfortable & ready to chat with y'all about & I SO GREATLY appreciate the respect of privacy of that! :)
Sometimes I may step away, but those are usually the times I am finding more of myself & reflecting on more of who I want to be, which I am so happy to be on the journey of!!
Thank y'all for the patience on this post! I know I talked about it last week, but this past week was filled with so many fun friend days, unique events around town & now more travels on the horizon!! I sure do love y'all so much!! Thank you for all of the love, support & prayers y'all have sent behind the scenes & in my DMs/comments! I am so thankful for each & every one of y'all!
