MOLLY, UNMARRIED

4 notes

I am an unorthodox Mormon woman with a fierce and hungry faith. Sometimes even in my own tradition I feel a long way from home. But I will keep on crossing as many plains as this life puts in front of me.

So with a heavy heart I wanted to announce that this will be the last week I’ll be posting on this blog full-time. It wasn’t the easiest decision but I feel that with the new chapter that is beginning in my life, it’s time to focus on other things/people in my life. Molly, Unmarried has meant a lot to me for the past 2 years. Being able to vent and use this blog as a platform to write down my thoughts on faith, maintaining a non bra-burning feminist view while keeping said faith, friends, family, new relationships and old ones has been incredible to say the least. I got a chance to look through some of my older posts earlier this week and to see how far I’ve come…it’s been a long and strange trip that’s for sure. But the journey is far from over (God willing lol). I’ll try to post pics or inspirational tidbits once in awhile but as far as this deep thoughts stuff…not so much. I’ll save that for my brand spankin’ new journal. :)
But never fear I’m not giving up on blogging for good! I’m blogging for a design, fashion & lifestyle blog that focuses on people of color in the DMV (that’s DC, Maryland & Virginia for you land lovers) AND drum roll yall…I’m starting my own clothing line! I’m so excited and scared at the same time that I don’t even know what to do. It’ll be a women’s line and…well let’s just say I have a lot of work ahead of me. 
Anyways thanks guys for the comments, the uplifting stories, EVERYTHING.
As always, God Bless!

P.S. A caption for this picture? You tell me. :D

aforevergirl asked: How do i post on your blog? either it's too early in the morning for me to figure it out, or the option is somewhere i can't find. Anyways, i am loving your blog. I want to tell you something. I want to tell you that I'm am VERY impressed by the way that you have taken your testimony to a high level, that the Gospel has become a part of who you are. That is not something you come across errday. Especially among recent converts. That is props to you, and props to your mama who raised you right.

You are so sweet!

There’s a submit button under my “About Me” section in the right corner. :)

And yeah I guess it has become a part of me. I feel like it use to be “me” and then there’s the Gospel. But living like that only brought conflict between the two, with the “who I was” part usually winning. I think a lot of people try to do both and I know that the Gospel doesn’t work that way. It wasn’t working for me anyways, playing both sides. 

Oh and I was thinking about the ‘holes’ thing last night and it reminded me of another part of Enos…

Thy faith hath made thee whole. :)

I think it’s entirely possible to have those holes in our testimonies however faith fills in the gaps that we may feel. Take one piece out and with our continued obedience and patience in Heavenly Father’s plan, it’s like nothing was removed at all.

Anyways, long story short, thank you for being amazing. x

One year later.

Woke up this morning with thoughts of the past year and I’m finding that I’m still trying to get adjusted to working in His plan and not mine. It weird how you have a plan for yourself for so long and it turns out completely different. Not a bad different but different nonetheless. I have to remember to be grateful for His blessings and try to forget the past. But these days, it’s been hard. I think about that only a year ago I had been dreaming about graduation and spending the rest of eternity with G. Now a year later, I bought a car, got a place of my own and got a job doing something I love. Things I never imagined for myself before. The hard times seem to have made me tougher and aspire to do the things that God knows I can do. And there’s something about when someone you love gives up on you that makes you wanna go H.A.M. Then I felt defeated and broken. Now I see an endless path in front of me, just waiting to be run on. Funny how that works itself out. 

Anyways it’s a beautiful day and I’m going to enjoy every single moment of it.

Take Care.

Tonight’s hip hop circuit went great! The girls loved it and I had so much fun teaching it. It’s SO important to take care of yourself spiritually, emotionally and physically. It’s almost like a pyramid…you can’t have 1 or 2 without the others. 

I don’t know what to name this poem I made but here it goes…

My body is a temple

A finely tuned machine

Work out for 3 hours 

And you’ll know exactly what I mean

Won’t settle for second

I know I can be the best

Push it to the limit

And pass every test

Though at times I stumble

Or feel like I wanna quit

Take my worries to my Father

Cause I know He’s listening

Run around in circles

Or dance to the beat

My hips and thighs be aching

But when you start a fire

You’re gonna feel some heat

Every curve is a blessing

Let it be a testimony,

Don’t let anyone tell you different,

Keep moving, keep going.
