Sit Still……

So I’m back. It’s been 6 months since I’ve written. I know you are reading this like…man why the long break? Honestly I needed to regroup, realign and reignite my purpose.  During this break a lot of major events took place around me making feel as if I’ve moved no where. I was able to witness many  of my close friends encounter life altering moments. Although Some events were unfortunate and tragic, some were also extremely exciting. Either way, ever since new years day, it has been a rollercoaster of emotions. From grieving with my best friends after watching them  lose  their beautiful mom, to having my little sister move in with me, to watching one of my other best friends welcome their new born son. And lastly watching a close friend get engaged and having the honor of being a bridesmaid in my 3rd wedding.  I have undergone a reawakening that I didn’t think I’d encounter. My eyes have been reopened to the possibilities of what life has to offer. However, while doing my best to be there for everyone…as I sat to write this very blog, I had to tell myself to sit still. I am often celebrating with others, and I am consistently there for everyone. Quite honestly I have worn myself out. I do not regret being there for my friends and family,  I am blessed to have been able to give my time the way I have over the past 6 months. As you see, I put alot of my goals on hold. My podcast, my blog, my upcoming book. So many exciting things I totally put on hold so that I could be supportive of those I loved. I realize that even though I went MIA with my goals, doesn’t mean I can’t pick myself back up. One of my favorite writers asked me a month ago, had I stopped writing, and I totally hadn’t realized how long it had been since I’d written. But I took a break, a break to be present. A break to find out what else I was good at. A break to love harder and to be present for those who needed me the most. Choosing love this year has been my mantra, and I’m sticking to it. I choose to live like tomorrow doesn’t exist. I choose to love others as if I’ll never see them again.  I say this often, but I firmly believe in sitting still to regroup. Had I not taken 6 months off to live life, I don’t think I would have been able to push forward with my goals with authenticity.  So, am I back? Does this Journey to Freedom continue for Krystal? Absolutely, I am back, Dusting myself off and eager to get back in the game. So what , I sat out of the 3rd quarter of the game. Doesn’t mean I’m hanging up my jersey and calling it a quits. It just means, I needed to refocus, needed to stretch a bit and warm up for the next quarter. So, if you are willing to ride this out with me…let’s make the rest of this year worth every second. Thank you to all of you who have chosen to walk this out with me. If you are looking to read my heart in a new way, then get ready….it’s going to be quite an experience if you can handle it. #chooselove #loveothers #loveconquersall #sitstill #smithstrong #thankful #brownfamily #HesIntentional #GodsLoveIsEnuff
