“Yet, isn’t life like that? As soon as you think you’ve overcome a feeling, a thought or even a habit- here comes a situation to test your response, to reveal your level of growth. Today’s dressing room nightmare was one of those situations, coming to test my perception of that little pudge around my mid-section that refuses to leave.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“Can I encourage you into a new mindset today? Into a new habit or practice? As you enter into this newness, embrace endings! Embrace endings, for at each end is a new beginning.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“Memories will speak on the behalf of what’s relationally dead;
And before you know it, you’re sad when there is so much more ahead.”©Simone Holloway, 2019
Yet, is not shame like that? You will spend your whole life believing in your pursuit or call and the response of the one you love will make you second guess your covenant. What you looked upon with pride, you now look upon with regret. I think that experiences like Iris’ or even mine during my college years have the power to shape us. We can either stick to our conviction, or to win the love of another we can compromise.”©Simone Holloway, 2019
