Describe Me 

To Remind

To remind to that I am my own worst enemy. Its not others who have a tendency to question your ability, It is yourself. So stop overthinking it , second guessing yourself and just do it. 

To Inspire Me
Its easy to forget this and judge people prematurely not only that we all have days in which we all believe we are bad, But we must remember we are what we decide to act on. 

Describes Me
INTJ , Me in a nutshell,

Blogtember Challenge- Best Day in Your Life, Part 1

Best Day in your life, Part One
I am only going to tell you about one although I have 5 I can think of off the top of my head. Ill tell about the rest later, that’s why it says part one.
 This is the first because its when my dream came true to have a little sister or brother. My mom had already miscarried once so she is truly a gift. She is the healthy one and I am the sick one, aka the one with all the doctors appointments and health history a mile long. Having a sister is like having a built in friend, its the best although there are lots of times I say I want to kill her. I really dont want to; I just know  she is just being a teenager, I know she loves me and she knows I love her. This is  a sister appreciation post. 
The first one is when my little sister was born, we are 11 years apart but we are so alike yet so different. It is also the best day because before that my mom miscarried and I have always wanted a sister. It’s just not fun to be an only child some times. Now I have a built in friend, most of the time, someone to share secrets and watch Disney movies with. She inspires me everyday and I try to be a good role model to her.

We have had lots of adventures and I bet we will have many more as we grow up. 
Oh and we both love Disney movies, and like Frozen A lot. She is Anna and I am Elsa. Scary thing is the match is prefect for our personalities and portrays just how we feel about each other some times.

Blogtember Challenge – 10 items off my Bucket List

  1.          To write a book: This is a recent addition to my list. Actually am I not even sure of why, I just have on my heart to write a book. Oh and I also have no idea what it is about either. I have some thoughts but I am not sure. Right now though I am trying to get into the habit of writing more; both for others and myself. 
  2.          Travel to Ireland: I am 25% Irish, enough said.
  3.          Learn how to drive: this one kind of obvious. I have to stop letting fear get in my way. That and making excuses for myself why I haven’t tried in a while. Excuses like I don’t feel good, I cant concentrate when I don’t feel good.
  4.           Get into Grad School: I want to be able to research for my job and for all the jobs ive looked at , a masters is greatly wanted. So in order to make what matters happen; using public policy to help other people in a positive way, it’s just something I need to do. If I want to help people be able to live more easily with the economy and give those that have rare or orphan diseases a voice in order to help get more research and the money to do so.
  5.           Live in DC: Another obvious one because if I want to work in public policy on the Hill its where you need to live. Sure I could work on the state of local level but congress is just so interesting to me; I enjoy watching CSPAN for fun.
  6.           Go to a conference either influencenet, CPAC or some other conference to help me live my dreams: I just recently joined Influencenet and am excited to catch up on my classes and it would be great to be able to meet people who have the same goals as me.
  7.          Plan a girls weekend
  8.           Do archery: I used to enjoy when I went to camp as a kid and I also had a knack for it. I have a bow and stuff I just need to get better and gain my strength back.
  9.           To start riding again and eventually get my own horse……. I know this is a long shot but I love horses and being around them, it makes me so happy. When I ride I feel like I am unstoppable.
  10.           To read 100 books in a year: I miss challenging myself to read so many books in a year like in school. I started this year a little late but there is always next year. I also have an ever growing to read list.  
  11.           Contentment Challenge 

Blogtember Challenge- Favorite Season

My favorite season is probably fall. I like it because it finally starts to cool down in Georgia. And after surviving a hot hot summer its a reward. I love fall because its so much easier to dress, and the wind in your hair is an amazing feeling. I love that boots and jeans are everywhere , and its not just me and my crazy sister still in boots. Sure I can pull off shorts and boots in the summer but its so much easier in the fall. I also love that fall is when you can start to pull out the sweaters and sweatshirts. There is just something about snuggling in a sweatshirt and reading.
The other reason i love fall is that its finally college football season. Which gives me a reason to yell at the tv again, because, depending on how my Dawgs play, it will either be happy or angry yelling. I think i also love fall because it is the beginning to back to school and i have always been that nerd who loves school supplies, and learning in general.

 
Fall is my season because it also brings pumpkin everything, and apple too. I have always loved fall because that means Thanksgiving. When i was younger we would always go and see my grndparents and my cousins. Its also when my family always go to a corn maze and gets lost. There is always laughter and always ends up being a wonderful experience to look back on.

Blog- Tember Challenge: Blog Name Inspiration

How I came up with blog name is really easy. I love Politicsand I love pearls. It was the perfect way to describe one of my passions and me at the same time. I wear pearls most of the time so it was a no brainer.
I have also thought of calling it “Daring Grace”. This is because I want to be daring and not play it safe, not live inside my comfort zone. I want to live the dreams it feels that God has given me, I want to help others but I cannot do that in my comfort zone.
I want to be more daring in my blogging and being honest and the same person I am online and off. I want to be vulnerable which at this moment seems like a dare to me. Dare to open and let people in, dare to let people see the real you, the crazy most of the time ADHD self.
Grace. Grace is a word that keeps poping up. I want to live in the Grace of God and give other people the grace when they needed. We all need grace because we are not perfect and trying to be perfect all the time is not going to cause us to be. Grace in my words in what I say, grace in what I do and what I don’t do, grace in opening up and then retreating, Grace in EVERYTHING.

So that’s how I came up with blog name and also something I just can’t get out of my head which I feel the need to share. 

Blog-Tember Challenge: My ideal Day

<a href=”http://www.braveloveblog.com/2015/08/the-2015-blog-tember-challenge.html&#8221; target=_blank”><img src=”http://i62.tinypic.com/2u9pxe0.jpg&#8221; border=”0″ alt=”Brave Love Blog” /></a></center>

My ideal day would first consist of me feeling awesome, this is important because it doesn’t seem to happen very often. #DBAProblems #Spoonie #DBA #IHateNeedlesToo  I would then have a slow morning in which I would spend the morning reading and doing Bible Study. I would go outside until lunch and eat outside.
Recent Family Adventures 

An adventure with my sister to Mayfield Dairy
mmmm , Ice Cream 

Stanford Stadium; Between the Hedges
Go DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!! 

 Then I would love to go somewhere with my family or friends. Another facet of my idea day would be wandering around a bookstore all day and then get coffee or some other type of food and discuss politics with someone who actually knows what is going on in the world.
 I would then love to find someone to watch some of Harry Potter movies with me. I would love to end the day with either ice cream or coffee and hanging out with my family or friends. 
I would say Im easy to please…………nature, family and friends, book , adventure and food and i am content.
