Hello there!

My name is Shaya and I’m a 20-year-old, Southern California girl working on following my dreams and passions. I’m exploring the world around me with eyes full of wonder and a heart searching for abundant joy.

I’m a big believer that we are all uniquely and wonderfully made in Him. Nobody is like you and nobody will ever be like you. That truth with the belief that you are truly special will take you so far. Don’t be afraid to be yourself, 100% you and nobody else! The hurdles you’ve overcome and the passions that fill your soul all add into that incredible human being you are.

The world around us is filled with so much of God’s love and beauty, but it is also hard and can be challenging. I have learned through loss that the people around you are so special. We were never made to do life alone and God put each person into our lives for a reason. As a millennial, I also know how powerful it can be to be independent and do it all on your own – being that ultimate boss lady! But at the same time, I know relationships, fighting for love, and being open + honest + vulnerable with others is just as critical. You’ve gotta find that balance!

This blog is a space for me to share. I love the creative pieces in the world around me. I think we all long to be known and know others. Life isn’t always the perfect image we strive for and I hope that here you can see that I’m going through life just like all of you! I hope to be a little voice of encouragement or wisdom (in whatever little capacity I can be!). I hope to shine God’s light and love to every one of you too!!

I’m so happy to have you here in my little place of the Internet! I’m still trying to find my groove and figure out my own voice so have grace with me!!

I love you all! Smile for me and know how loved you are.
