Firing My SWAT Team.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  I hope you all are having a great evening.  Here’s a thought: What would your life look like if you were less guarded?  I used to ask myself this question all the time.  I used to imagine a life of pain, abuse, and emotional wounds.

“I was no longer living for church politics or for people who did not create me to accept me, I was accepted already. I attended dances, went to mixers, traveled all over the country for conferences, and went on day trips- I was having the time of my life! I became free.”©Simone Holloway, 2019

We can either stick to our conviction, or to win the love of another we can compromise.”©Simone Holloway, 2019

In Love With The Idea.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers – I hope you all are having a great evening!  It’s been a great day for me and I am super pumped about sharing my thoughts with you.  Those who know me, know that I love films.  I love all films but I have a special place…

Heal first.
