i'm sharon elizabeth
Before we even dive in, for those interested, I'm an INFJ - Enneagram 5w4. I'm a firm believer in holding space for others... in being a safe place. I can't say that I've always had a safe place to show up with every part of who I am... most of the time I felt like my heaviness was a burden that only I was meant to carry... and so I struggled in silence.
I felt alone... and I don't want you to feel that way. I don't want anyone in my life to feel like they don't have a safe place to retreat to or to show up vulnerably in.
My little family and I live along the beaches of Nags Head, North Carolina and there is something so healing about the salt air.
I find my joy in the moments where I can breathe slowly and soak in every single second... in the moments where I'm able to be intentional and mindful in the chaos that is 'life'....
If I reach the end of my time and know that at least one person felt heard.... and seen... I'll feel fulfilled. If I can somehow find a way to help someone grow into who God has called them to be, or point them to Jesus... my heart will be full.
If I can pour light into someone's darkness. It will all have been worth it.
And I believe your story matters... and that your pain has a purpose... let's use our story of darkness to be a light for others.
writing scriptures and journaling powerful and inspiring thoughts or reading books that encourage and challenge me... just a couple things that keep me mindful and present
there aren't many things in life better than a big awkward hug and lots of snuggly couch cuddles
imagine walking around a pool (read: having a conversation) -- i like to throw people in the deep end head first and skip the shallow end altogether
sun-kissed and wave-washed... the salt air is healing and i love having the sand between my toes and in my hair
