I'd like to know.


You know that feeling when your heart is so FULL and your passions are being ignited and ideas and wants and dreams are just bursting at the seams?

Well, I have that feeling. I call it brain gibberish.

I have so much going on upstairs right now I can't even keep up. My brain must be thinking, "LADY! YOU CRAZY! SLOW DOWN!" (I don't know why but I totally just said this in a Honey Boo Boo voice, Lord, Help me!)

My journal is full of words, doodles, dreams, desires, wants, wisdom, quotes, pictures, plans, YOU NAME IT.

It's an incredible, scary, buckle your pants, hold on tight, big gulps, wipe your forehead, hand over your heart, WHOLY FREAKING COW batman kind of feeling!

It's time for me to start sharing. I want to help. I want to inspire. I want to share my whole heart with y'all.

I am planning to start sharing my photography work more. I know I did in the beginning and kind of stopped. I have a thousand reasons why but now I think it's time to start again.

However, even though I have A LOT up my sleeve, I'm curious.

What is it that you want to know? Do you have any questions? Do you have anything you particularly want me to share with you?

I'm all ears.

But you should desire to follow my dreams is in full force at this moment. I haven't felt this motivated in a long time. I'm no longer scared of taking the leap. I'm no longer waiting for things to happen. I'm going to jump right in. NAKED!!! Don't you feel the most vulnerable when you're naked? The most insecure? Well, if not, HIGH FIVES and KNUCKLE BUMPS for you. Me? I just want to hide in a little ball, call Jenny Craig and beg for clothes to cover me up. SO, that's why I've decided to more or less, be naked on this blog. Naked as in I'm here to share my heart. I'm not hiding anything. Not even the cellulite.

You have ONE life. ONE heart. WHY not share it?

I've been talking to God a lot lately and he's pretty much smacked me on the head a few times for letting the devil make his way into my heart and enter self doubt A LOT.

The devil would say "You're not good enough Shay, Give up!" God would just come right back and say, "You're amazing Shalyn. GO FOR IT. DO IT. DO IT. FLY!"

Well, I don't know about you but that God of ours? He's Great. He knows what he's talking about. :)

So, now that I'm finally going for my dreams and have a few fun, awesome, SHAYtastic things up my sleeve...

What is it that you want to know? Any questions? Anything you'd like to see me share more of?

I'd love to know.

Have a beautiful day love bugs! :)

  10. Good for you Shay! You have so many talents, and I am so happy you use them to give God the glory. He has blessed you that is for sure. I love transparency, it is something I value the most, being able to share your heart. & my dear Shay, you have a beautiful one. Like God would say, do it do it fly! <3

  11. wow i love this! something I'm interested in just because of where I am in my life is how other people felt after graduating from college. I'm struggling to adjust and find that door to the next chapter, and I really want to fly, (like God is telling you to fly), but I have no idea what I'm supposed to do that would be 'flying' for me!

  12. It's so nice to hear how happy and positive things are for you! I am so inspired to hear about how your choices have led to this level of happiness and willingness to just jump!

  13. I'm just so happy for you and the place you are in! This is really, truly so exciting Shay. Your faith is also an inspiration to me... so thanks for being awesome!
