Be good to yourself, be good to others

June 17, 2014

Happy Wednesday Tuesday, all! (Yes, a correction was made late today when I realized it is in fact TUESDAY, not Wednesday.) Just a little reminder today, to be good to yourself and to be good to others. 
I am SO excited to do my first sponsor love introduction for you all! I give my Soul Provider sponsors the option to write their own intro post or to do a Question/Answer post. One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know other bloggers and my heart is happy today to introduce you to Kenji! (Kenj opted for the Q&A which was super fun – and one of them hilarious – for me.)

Hey everyone! I’m Kenji from “Have no fear…Kenji is here!” Over in my place on the interwebs I talk about my life as it is now. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis but never let that hold me back. I love to go on adventures and fill you all in on every one of them, while also sharing an insight on life with RA. Taking a quick glance at my blog you will notice my love for God, coffee, glitter, and lipstick. I’m all over the place, but somehow it all comes together. I hope you stop by and stay a while; I love new friends!
Hi, I’m Kenji
Witty. Altruistic. Punctual. God-fearing.

I really always wanted to be a pilot. I’m only 23 so there is still a
very good possibility this could happen. I grew up traveling often for a
competitive figure skating team, and I fell in love with planes. I don’t know
the mechanics of planes, but I know I like to fly and that’s enough for me to
want to be a pilot.

This is for your entertainment.
I met my best friend, Chelsea, in middle school. We knew
each other and 
didn’t hate each other but we weren’t friends then. It wasn’t until High School that we solidified our friendship. She was the outrageous
always having fun type and I wanted to be like her. Now she has two kids and has calmed down a bit and
I’m the outrageous one. I guess you could say she rubbed off on me. When we do get girl time, we’re still pretty crazy and always have a blast..

Suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis has
brought on some amazing words of advice from friends and family. I get random
texts from them of really good quotes to live by. My favorite comes from
scripture “But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is
made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my
weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9. Suffering
can be hard, but knowing God has His hand on you makes the hard times a lot

This is tough. My perfect day would start off
with a morning bike ride around the block, followed by breakfast (eggs of
course) and coffee. I would then travel to somewhere near the water and have a
picnic lunch while soaking up some rays. After toasting my body I would head on
home for a backyard dinner on the grill (steaks and corn on the cob). To end my
perfect day, I would roast marshmallows by the fire. My perfect day would
include my mom and brother because I always seem to have the absolute best time
when its just the three of us.

This question I actually answered last. This is hard for me. I have so many inspirations, but I have to say over all my mother and brother. They are two of the most independent, hard working, selfless people I have ever met. While I consider myself all those things, they take the cake. My mother has proved time and time again that we are in control of our own happiness, while my brother has been there for me more than anyone else. I owe so much to both of them but most of all for shaping me into the person I am today.

I have
thought about this before. I would tell myself that things in life are going to
get crazy. It may seem like everyone is giving up on you and life is basically
over. DON’T GIVE UP! You make it through all the mess that no 16 year old
should deal with, and you end up becoming a better person because of it. You
are strong and you will see in a few years that the experiences you go through
shape you into a God-fearing woman. You can make it through, I promise. Also, stop wearing neon pink eye shadow, thanks for that one.

I hope
you’re just as crazy as you are in your 20’s. I really like who I am and I hope
to carry that with me through my life. Oh, and I know most people don’t say
this, but I hope I turned out to be just like my mom.

You want honesty; I had to Youtube him
because I had no idea who he was. Oh hey 90’s baby. My bad, my bad. I did
listen to his music for a little bit if that counts for anything.
