Oh, hey! Remember us? Hopefully you didn't forget us because we certainly haven't forgotten you. In fact, we've been busy planning for you and dreaming about the future of Total Woman U and all the ways we want to connect with you. You may or may not have noticed that we haven't blogged since last August. Life gets busy doesn't it? I could list off reasons explaining why we lacked time for writing and posting and tell you of all the celebratory things and hard things that have happened in the individual lives of our team and in our organization as a whole, since we last posted here, but I won't do that. Instead, what I will do is say that our goal and plan is to get back here! We want to do the big moments with you, like events, but we also want to do the in betweens with you. I have a new appreciation for the in betweens in life lately. I recently wrote this [obnoxiously long] rambling of thoughts on Facebook regarding the in betweens.
Let's call our absence from blogging a big ol' in between. I'm not sad it happened. SO many big, hard, and beautiful things happened in all of our lives during those away months. And a whole lot of small seemingly mundane things happened too. But I/we are making a pact to recognize and cherish moments, BIG AND SMALL, with you. I recently was reminded from a message I can't get out of my mind by Louie Giglio that we only get one life. I, you, we, just one life! When we let life pass us by and don't take time to intentionally recognize the beauty of EVERYTHING--big moments, small moments, in between moments--life feels fleeting and like it's rushing passed us and sometimes even like we're missing it. I want to make the most of this life I've been given, the chances I have to share my Jesus with the world, to keep telling and retelling the story of the Gospel, to keep sharing and writing and posting and telling all the big and small things God does in my life, to use the voice God has given me to make much of His name. One life, y'all. Jesus is coming back in our time or after our time. But regardless, He's coming (praise hands FOR REAL), and we only get one life on earth to be a vessel used by Him.
So all that to say, we never stop planning for the events and all the big things TWU does, but as a team we feel called to you! To plan and create big moments like events, but to live out all the in between moments with you too. To share our lives with you. To speak the words of truth, vulnerability, the funny stories, the serious lessons, and teachable moment after teachable moment that God gives us. We want our messy lives and moments to be part of and connect with your messy lives and moments too. Expect us to start posting here again regularly, and also be on the lookout for some exciting things happening through our ww, Twitter, and Instagram for some exciting things happening to keep you connected to us and us connected to you (hint: GIVEAWAYS!).
Let's make our own rules,
