Hi there, friend! Macy here! Thank you so much for coming and visiting My Paradise! My goal in this blog is to bring a community of people together on my journey with me and hopefully along the way, helping people feel seen, understood, and loved. This is a place for all those who need a friend, so please, join us!

I’m a person who is extremely passionate about all that I do and truly wants to make an impact. One of those passions is my love for people and connecting with others (where are my fellow enneagram 2’s at?!). I deeply care for everyone I know and I hope that my love for life and others shows through my words and actions.

Something very important in my life is my faith. I’m a Christian and that’s everything to me. My identity lies in Jesus Christ, He is my redeemer, my strength-giver, and constant provider. Without Him, I wouldn’t be where I am today and I hope you see through this blog I seek to give Him all the glory!

One interesting tidbit of information is that 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 receive an 18-hour infusion every three weeks. However, this does not define me. That’s not to say my illness is not a very large and ever-present part of my life, but God is greater and His grace, comfort, and mercy is so evident! I hope through this blog others with health issues will be able to relate and feel seen as well as informing those who do not have health issue about the day to days of being chronically ill.

I’m a certified bookworm and have always loved getting lost in a good book. I also very much enjoy delving into the world of movies and tv shows, I think I honestly just love anything involving a good story. I may also have a bit of a travel bug, who can blame me though?! The Lord has made a pretty incredible world to explore. I find joy in cuddling with my pets, listening to music and watching Audrey Hepburn films. My friends and family are my heart. I would not be here today if it weren’t for their love and constant support. They never cease to amaze me and they mean more to me than I can express.

Throughout my life, I’ve gone through so many changes. Lately, it seems like I’m always evolving as a person. There are so many more quirks and details I could share about myself, but I’m even learning more about myself each day. My interests change, my latest obsessions may fade, and my life may take some unexpected turns but I’m excited to share that all with you.

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’ve always poured my heart into my writing and I pray that shows. I am hopeful 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 am so expectant of what God for this little corner of our world. So join me, my friends, it’s gonna be a fun 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.”
