Everyone Won’t Always Like You & That’s Okay

I’ve never been a people pleaser so it has always been easy for me to go about my business. To…ya know, do me regardless of what people’s opinions were. I accepted the notion “everyone won’t always like you” early.

 

This aspect of myself has only continued to blossom. I’ve always been conscious of who I was/am in Christ and representing Him in the best ways possible. So nowadays, if an issue arises, I respond right when I was wronged. Or, if I hurt anyone, I apologize. Simple. Pride isn’t necessary. A petty remark isn’t worth compromising my character in Christ.

DAYDREAMER, HERE’S HOW TO GAIN CLARITY

Hey guys, Medge here!

 

Can’t believe we’re already bidding summer adieu. As I prepared to write this post, it hit me that I’ve been writing on Adorned In Armor for a year! Looking back to my old posts, I can see the change between the person I was then and who I am now.

PURPOSE: This Is What You’re Here For

Earlier this month, my church youth committee and I coordinated a youth gala. Many came out (and showed out — yes, ball gowns and suits!) to enjoy our live band and DJ, devour fine dining, win prizes in our many activities, flood the photobooth and enjoy each other’s presence.

 

Definitely a good time!

EMBRACING THE RAIN ON MY PARADE

rain on my parade adorned in armor

 

Hey guys, Medge here!

 

Summer has poured “rain on my parade” in the most unexpected of ways. From the silly little things like going to an editors meeting at 2:15 because you missed the follow up email saying that it now started at 2 :)…to the even more serious things, like missing the bill payment for school… or, even having a cracked screen on my laptop that holds all my writing files (including this post that I rewrote) with no funds to pay for damages. Needless to say, I was drowning.

SNAPCATION: CANADA CAPTURES

 

I’ve been wanting to travel all summer. I had been feeling so off (for many reasons) and needed a break. God granted me the desires of my heart because last Thursday, my mom called me and told me to pack my bags for a trip to Canada the very next day!

 

Yes, just like that.

COME AS YOU ARE

I’m really good at being “okay.” I’m great at it, actually! Doesn’t matter where or when, I can always muster up a smile for anyone.

 

My best friends, however, know me very well. And so I don’t feel the need to act outside of myself when I’m not feeling like myself. When I’m unhappy, they see it in my eyes. When I’m turned off, they see it in my demeanor. When I’m agitated, they see it in my silence. My mom is especially good at reading me! I don’t have to say a word, they just feel it.

 

So I’m continuously amazed…not by how my closest friends have the ability to feel like something’s off with me, but by the mere fact that God already knows.

NO FUTURE PLANS?

I was having a great conversation with my dad yesterday — it was the kind where you figure out future plans together or try to get one another to understand future plans that one is trying to set in motion.  A nice father-daughter convo where I explain how I’m aiming to “get my life.” The topic? Grad school and jobs.

How To Beat The Waiting Game

Waiting: I hate it. I like to know what’s next and what’s going on.

 

So when I began to apply for internships, my thought process wasn’t any different. I confidently applied in the beginning of April, prepared to be set for the summer. But something strange happened — unsettling even. I wasn’t getting any answers.

  • Raise your hand if this is your season of countless trials 🙋🏾 Life has been so real for me -- I haven't been in the mood to do a lot of things, let alone post on insta. But I had to check in on you guys. It's so easy to act like you're all good around others. I'm a beast at that -- I can't not smile when I'm around people! But how are you when you're on your own? When you don't have to pretend life isn't breaking you down?

Smile, not because everyone’s counting on you, but for the sake of you. Let your light be a beacon of hope in your storm. No matter the outcome, know that ALL things are working for your good and God's got your rainbow on the other side. // NEW POST on adornedinarmor.com ✨
