Here //

I’m sorry if I seem uninterested // Or I’m not listenin’ or I’m indifferent
Truly, I ain’t got no business here // But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it but really // I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
With people who don’t even care about my well-being //  – Alessia Cara, Here

This song is literally my life. Always.

I am the type of girl who can be a social butterfly but am also very okay with choosing to watch movies alone in my room. I sincerely believe that it’s okay to not fit in, to not go with the flow of the world. It’s okay to do your own thing, especially if everything else seems like a waste of time and energy, so you only invest in genuine mutual relationships.

If you can relate to my ideology, then you’ll probably like my blog. If you don’t relate, then keep scrolling and let me tell you more about me and this blog of mine.

But honestly I’d rather be // Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message (like we usually do)
And we’ll discuss our big dreams // How we plan to take over the planet – Alessia Cara, Here

I’m a 21-year-old Midwestern girl looking to make it big in life. I’ve never had small dreams, just big ones. I want to have a platform that I can use to inspire others with my words. I may not be Maya Angelou, but I do express myself best through writing so I thought I’d try this blogging thing out.

But my love of writing is not the only reason I started this blog. It’s been on my heart for a while. I feel like I have wisdom and perspective that I should share.

I am calling my blog, The Curvy Christian, for a couple of reasons:

  1. Christians are called to walk the straight and narrow path (Matthew 7:13-14) but this “road less traveled” comes with twists and turns, CURVES and crossroads. It’s not easy to maneuver at times but seeing fellow Christians, like me,  walk it with you makes it a bit easier.
  2.  I am a Christian with CURVES. Yeah, I said it and I’m proud of it. By no means, am I the only Christ follower with hips and the lack of a thigh gap, so let’s talk about it instead of sweeping the topic under the rug. Sadly, in addition to body types, there are many things that most Christians don’t talk about, like social justice and mental health. Well I plan on talking about it. I plan on giving advice and perspective on topics like #blacklivesmatter , my college experience, intersectionality of identities and relationships, in addition to explaining why I embrace all my curves and all my edges so if you are uncomfortable with that, then maybe this is not the blog for you. Or maybe it is and you just don’t know it yet.

For those that are NOT Christian, this blog IS for you. Don’t let the title, “The Curvy Christian,” throw you off. Although, my words will be inspired by scripture, sermons,  and my personal walk with Christ, I simply want to share a different perspective on everyday life. {SIDE NOTE: I am not and will not be a token Christian that represents all of my religion, but I will provide a different way of thinking that may be surprisingly refreshing.}

For those that ARE Christian, this blog IS also for you. I hope my blogs provide encouragement as well as challenges for you and your walk with Christ.

Now that we’ve got that settled. I am looking forward to taking you all on this narrow, curvy road with me.

So holla at me I’ll be in the car when you’re done // I’m standoffish, don’t want what you’re offering // And I’m done talking – Alessia Cara, Here
