The face I see looking back at me in the mirror doesn’t match the child I still feel I am on the inside. I’m 42 (as of 7/17) and I still struggle to be a grown up. That’s why I named this blog what I did.
this girl called mindy was initially about working through my struggles with clinical depression by writing in hopes that, by baring my soul to the world, my vulnerability might help someone else….It has since turned into more than that. Depression is no longer a main focus. The Lord healed me of depression (April 2016) but I still have my issues. Depression isn’t just one thing wrapped in a neat little package. But Jesus definitely lifted something off of me because I would be WAY worse than I am right now. I’ve written all about the struggles and confusion I experienced following my healing. I do still feel like there is more the Lord needs to set me free of…there is still something that lingers but I look forward to all these strongholds being broken in God’s amazing timing.
this girl called mindy is about helping myself to just LET. IT. OUT! And then hopefully I will be able to let it go.
And finally, this girl called mindy is about me just expressing myself the way I want, how I want, when I want. This blog is my outlet.
…..also……These posts I write are a great way to reflect on how much I’ve grown and continue to grow in my faith as a true Christian. It’s messy but Jesus never said it would be easy.
