It's The Usual Things

It’s the usual things. One of my fave YouTubers said she recently rushed to the ER thinking she was having a heart attack. It was a panic attack. If you’re a millennial who hasn’t had the heart attack scare, only to be told it’s panic/anxiety, you’re one of the luckiest ones of our generation. It’s the usual things. Health challenges. It’s the usual things. Career lows. It’s the usual things. Rejection. It’s the usual things. Relational issues. It’s the usual things. Fear. It’s the usual things. Depression.





But it’s also the usual things. Joy unspeakable. It’s the usual things. Laughing till I get a headache; my favorite kind. It’s the usual things. Career highs—would you believe, if I told you, that at my tender young age, THE president of these united states has seen work by lil ol me? It’s the usual things (ok that last one was not so usualπŸ˜‰). Being loved and adored by best people I know—I actually can’t believe how lucky I am to have them. It’s the usual things. A faith grounded not in what God can do for me but who He is—His inherent goodness. It’s the usual things. Dreams so wild, so big, they terrify me. It’s the usual things. A life unfettered by worldly obsession with status and visibility and its limited definition of success. It’s the usual things. All the bountiful love in my heart. It’s the usual things.


Another birthday. I will never take any of these for granted.


Thank you, Jesus!


I wrote the above in a caption on Instagram yesterday (my actual birthday) and it seemed to resonate with folks so I thought to bring it here on the blog too. 


Love,


I
