This is week on #connecttuesdays features Lisa Tannehill who has been a best friend to me since freshman year of high school!
Who are you?
I'm Lisa. I'm a 28 year old, half filipino/half italian-irish, Christian, single, MFT grad student living in LA trying to navigate what it means to be my truest self, grow, heal, and connect in this season of life.
What inspires you?
Things that inspire me are people who share their passion from the stories that they have experienced in a genuine way where you are able to appreciate the beautiful expression of their being. Music, Movies, Stories, and Art that can give life and color to some aspect of daily life whether it's the mundane, the changing of seasons, pivotal life moments that grow a person filled with a mixture of hope and despair. Deep, lasting relationships that have weathered through so much together in an open vulnerable way that has been filled with conflict, comfort, laughter, brokenness, and companionship in the everydayness of life.
What do you fear?
I fear that I'm going to miss so many cherishable moments in life because I'm so worried about the next season or focused on the need for perfecting the one I'm in. I'm afraid that I'll be so busy building a future and an identity that I lose out on the present moment and appreciating who I am today even in my "not yet" state.
What makes you laugh?
Little kids who trip on the sidewalk... people who overly self-depricate...and Socially awkward people including myself.
