Hi! I’m Olivia. I like sushi, polka-dots, coffee shop chats, vintage clothing, and Caleb. You can look for new content (almost) every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and get some fun little email reminders here. This is a blog about learning to say no to hustle and yes to grace. It’s about centered life around a call from God to make space.
Making space doesn’t come with a plan. Making space requires me to allow my feelings to be felt, with more listening and less talking. Making space means less social media, less busyness, less fake relaxation, less of my own frantic measuring to see how well I’m making space. Making space also means more God, more genuine listening to Caleb, more Saturday morning coffee chats, more spontaneous ice cream runs, more reflection, more runs for the scenery than for the miles, and more of the me I’m not as comfortable with. Making space requires I step down from that driver’s seat, even when I get scared and want to take control again. Making space means choosing to say no to Hustle, no matter how sparkly it looks.
It’s for navigating with trust the grace presented to us in Ephesians 3:19:”and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Put on some slippers, fill up your mug, and start to care for your anxious heart. I hope you’ll make some space with me for the journey ahead.
