Anger, sadness, disappointment, heartbreak, love, kindness, humility, these are all emotions that I have felt in the span of a week, heck in the run of a day. Each emotion peaked and dulled and then another emotion would explode and to be honest I felt, heck let's be honest, FEEL like a legit emotional roller coaster.
But the difference between the “old Gina” and the “new and improved Gina” is that I finally give my permission to feel these emotions. To embrace them, not question them and to feel each and every one of them deeply.
You see, if there is one thing I know, it is that if you don't deal with your emotions or your feelings they have a way of sneaking up when you least expect it and give you the biggest sucker punch you could imagine.
So as I settle back into routine, am gentle with myself and allow myself to feel and deal with these emotions I have no judgement towards those feelings. We have feelings for a reason, they are how we cope, how we grow and we learn.
But, here is the kicker, because I am feeling these emotions it will not take me down or derail me. I will feel the sadness, the kindness and any other emotion that comes up and I will move forward, I will use my coping techniques and take it all with ease as this is the process that needs to happen.
Feeling and showing your emotions doesn't mean you are weak, in fact, it is the total opposite. It means you have strength, compassion and you care about the things that are happening around you and the people in it.
oh yeah your skin and bones
turn into something beautiful
you know, you know I love you so
you know I love you so...
and feeling all the feelings

How is it already week 9?!?!?!!
My best friends from college has a good laugh when I told them about training to be a fitness instructor. Why? Because it’s just that ridiculous of a thought.
Following God is the greatest of adventures, friends. One of the beautiful parts is that we do not have to have all the answers. We don’t need to know how it will look or work out. We can joyfully say yes and move in love trusting His goodness and faithfulness. His love never quits. And He wants me and you to know that love, to get healthy, Be whole, and love others.
So while I’m beyond nervous for the upcoming five day intensive, because this isn’t ground I’m comfy on yet, I’m also really excited because when we are weak He shows Himself strong.
