Outta Box Girl

Happy Monday, y’all! So I promised updates on all things new and boy have I been stepping out of my comfort zone! Well actually, I think God has been PULLING me out of my comfort zone. And what I say to that is be careful what you pray for – LOL.

So let’s see about two weeks ago I crashed my roommate’s girl’s night out. It was karaoke night….Yep, you heard it right KARAOKE and little Miss Introvert (me of course) not only sang Brickhouse by the Commodores to the top of my lungs, but I also was the lead singer!! So I am a little tone deaf (can you even be a little tone deaf):) My 7th grade chorus teacher wasn't as nice in his description of my singing, however I have recovered from that devastation and talked myself into it with this realization “these folks don’t know me and will probably never see me again, so why not have a little fun.” This is my new approach to life and things that scare me. I recently read this bumper sticker which said: Everyday do something that scares you. A few years ago, I would have been like humph whatever - I'm not doing this; I'm not doing that... Now I so understand that statement. Doing things that scare you make you strong and courageous.

On a deeper note, I am realizing that if I live by fear so do my children. Whenever I do something new it provides them with an example of a fearless woman. I want them to be fearless; I want them to know there is nothing is this world they cannot accomplish. This journey is not just about me; it is about me and my girls. My girls who by the way for the first time ever sang on the youth choir yesterday!

There is plenty more to come from your “Outta Box Girl”, I promise.


  1. You are so right. Overcoming fear is a huge part of divorce recovery. But you need to in order to move on to all God has in store for you. Joyce Meyer always says: "Do it afraid."

  2. There comes a point when your courage and ability to overcome situations starts to encourage others to step have reached that point. Thanks for the encouragement.

  3. OKAY!!!! GO GURL!! I love the blog!! Are we going to tackle the swiming thang next?

  4. Hmmmm about the swimming thang...that is something I definitely need to work up to. I am counting on you go hold me accountable - LOL
