Why hello you attractive looking specimen! Thanks for popping by.
So first things first, ‘I’m the realest, drop this and let the whole world feel it…’ – Ehem, sorry. Been listening to my Iggy playlist again. Welcome to House Adon, I’m beyond excited to share a slice of my life with you!
This week I’ve been stumbling through life with a series of happy mistakes, lots of fear, I mean, even of my own shadow! An unspeakable amount of internal temper tantrums and a healthy womanly dose of why-is-my-life-so-hard tears. In the midst of all these emotions and pity parties, I fully came to realize the Love God has for me and the world.
Whoa! Can you imagine going through a pretty tough week and still been taken aback by the absolute and unchanging love of God? Well I did, and it made me feel like a super hero!
It took me awhile to realize that the fundamental reason why a few wires were crossing upstairs, was because of the launch of House Adon. Stress gripped me like a hugry man grabbing a woman’s butt as she walked by. I needed to take a few steps back, slap fear in the face, and truly work on my faith in God. (using the word butt and God in the same sentence is unusual, but its okay, God gets me!) I really had to make myself snap out of it and remind myself that, if I’m not enjoying it, I shouldn’t be doing it. The words “lean not on your own understanding” kept playing though my head like a broken record all week, I found myself saying it out loud to myself, and I knew God was telling me to have faith, and move forward knowing that without a shadow of a doubt that He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me. What a comforting thought in the middle of all that chaos.
I also began to acknowledge that my frantic behaviour was because I was quick to forget why I initially gave birth to House Adon. I was beginning to worry about what other people would think. “Is my blog/business going to be good enough?”, “What are people going to say?”, “I’m only 25, I have no business starting a business!”, “Will my family take this as seriously as I want them to?”, “What if people don’t like it?” An ocean of doubt started flooding my mind, naturally, my brain hit panic mode, and all the other emotions spiraled like a ripple effect.
The truth is, people are going to have heaps to say about it, not many people are going to dig it, I might not be good enough for some people, and even some of my family and friends won’t read my blog or bring in business. This is just the fabric of what life is about, and the faster I came to accept it the faster I was able to breathe. What truly matters is the fact that I love what I do, I’m completely in love with life and I want to share happiness with others through my blog. I don’t know where this road is going to take me, but that’s what walking in faith is all about, fully trusting in God for breakthrough, regardless of what your doubts or fears might be saying. So folks, I give you… Drum roll…… My first blog post!
If House Adon manages to bring you even a fraction of joy. Then I’ll know I’ve done my job. Thank you is not enough to express my appreciation for you. Yet it seems to be the only words I have left.
Why don’t you Start here and get to know House Adon a little better.
Now if you will excuse me, I’ve got a pillow to go scream into and dinner to cook.
