Hello there! My name is Macy. Thank you so much for coming and visiting My Paradise! My goal in this blog is to hopefully bring you all on my journey with me. First and foremost, I’m a Christian and that’s something that’s very important to me. I’m a person who is extremely passionate about all that I do and truly want to make an impact. One of those passions is my love for people and connecting with others. I deeply care about everyone I know and I hope that my love for life and others shows through my posts.

Something else that’s important to note is I have a chronic illness called agammaglobulanemia. Which is a fancy way of saying that I was born without very important parts of the immune system. Because of this I get sick quite easily. Subsequently I have to have 18 hour infusions every three weeks. However, this does not define me. Let me repeat. This does not define me. That’s not to say my illness is not a very large and important part of my life. However, I am more than my illness and I pray this blog proves that.

Like I said before I’m a Christian. Which means my identity lies in Jesus Christ. He is my redeemer, strength-giver, and provider. Without Him, I wouldn’t be who I am today. Heck, I wouldn’t even be here!

I enjoy reading, all things involving nature, and delving into the world of tv shows and movies. I love to push myself to try new things. I may also have a slight shopping and traveling addiction. I find comfort in cuddling with my pets, listening to music, watching documentaries, and spending alone time talking with God. My friends and family are my rocks in this world. They never cease to amaze me and I learn more and more each day through them.

Throughout my life I’ve gone through so many changes. Lately it seems like I’m always evolving as a person. There’s so many more quirks and details I could share about myself, but I’m even learning more about myself each day. My interests change and my latest obsessions may fade but I’m excited to share that all with you. I’ve always loved writing and lately I’ve needed some inspiration in life. I truly hope this blog helps me find some of what I’ve been missing.

I’m going to be my full self on here; flaws and all. I think that’s what expressing yourself is all about; opening up those parts of yourself that you normally wouldn’t want to. That’s what makes this whole journey so worth it though, right? I hope that through this we all find out a little something new about ourselves we never would have expected. I want this to be a haven for not only me, but for whoever comes here. I really am so excited to see what God has in store for me in this next chapter of my life. Again thank you so much for coming on this journey with me and I hope you enjoy the ride.

Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
