‼️ HAPPY 6 Year Passiversary to me ‼️ Today, I reached another year of abstinence. I can’t flex like it has been a walk in the park, but I can say that God has definitely helped me through these years. I was just a 16 year old who was tired of living the way that I was. I’ve learned a lot on this journey to purity, and it NEVER stops. There are some days where I want to throw in the towel, but it wouldn’t be worth it. Sex controlled me! I thought it was my only way to be wanted, loved, attractive, etc. I found out that was a lie long ago. So, here’s to another year of focusing on Christ & living a life of purity.
I wrote a blog about how I gave up abstinence 6 months ago. Link in bio! #IChooseToPass

When you’re always taking pictures for others so your sister takes yours for you! My baby sister came through.

If you would’ve told me that I’d make it this far, I don’t know if I would’ve believed you. This journey of pursuing purity HAS NOT been easy. Just because I’m abstinent, doesn’t mean that I am a perfect person...NAH FAM! ✋🏾 However, I am grateful to make it another month closer to 6 years of this thing. At 16, I never would’ve thought that I’d make such a life changing decision to fully pursue this with GOD! This is HIS doing! #IChooseToPass
I’ll be going live tonight at 8:00pm (CST) discussing some things about this journey, and what I’ve learned.

It’s been a minute since I’ve introduced myself, so let me. * My name is Mary Katherine Vaughn. Some people call me May May or Sweet Mary Kay.
* At 13, I lost my virginity to guy that I knew for 2 days on a public coffee shop’s restroom floor - it lasted all of 5 minutes. * I was depressed, angry, promiscuous, lost, and acting out these emotions in school, home, and anywhere else that came about. * At 15, I was diagnosed with oppositional defiance disorder - a disorder in a child marked by defiant and disobedient behavior to authority figures. * I was in and out of detention center. I served a probation sentence which was only supposed to be 6 months for 2 1/2 years. * At 16, I was tired of being angry. I rededicated my life back to the Lord. He SAVED my life! I’ve be abstinent now for 5 years and 11 months come Tuesday. (ONLY GOD CAN!)
* At 22, I am a full-time student, an author, a child of God, game-changer, motivational speaker, leader of my generation, & it is all because of God’s Saving Grace! Nice to meet you, let’s connect! ☺️

*Swipe Left* The first 3 pictures are the beginning of this journey! In January of 2016! The collages are my journey through year two.
Two years ago...7 months after taking my first set of locs out, I decided to loc my hair up again. YES, I have my moments of wanting them out..BUT I LOVE MY HAIR. It grows super fast and it’s healthy! Let me just say this: 🗣 WEAR YOUR HAIR THE WAY YOU WANT TO WEAR IT. If you want to cut it, CUT IT. If you want a relaxer, HELLO CREAMY CRACK. If you want to go natural, GO NATURAL, and OF COURSE if you want LOCS, GET THEM! There is NO SUCH THING as the ugly stage. Get them locs and SLAY! Anyway, Happy 2 Year Lociversary to me! 🤗 // .

If you’re close to me, you know that I struggle with this. I hold on too long to past and current situations that I had/have NO control over and can’t change it! It’s draining and quite frankly, it makes me miserable. My mom always says, “May May, you’ve gotta get free.” I hear her say it, and I listen, but last night it really resonated with me. So, this is a goal for me...LETTING THINGS GO! I’m trying to forgive quickly, move on swiftly, & pray more than I harp on my situations. It’s tough at times, because of this flesh 🙄, but I’m gonna overcome 💪🏾. So, if you struggle with this too.. YOU GOT THIS!

In 2017, I experienced the loss of my great grandmother, depression, discontentment, laziness, procrastination, graduation, a full-ride scholarship, released my first book, and many ups and downs...BUT through all of this God has really grown me. I’m really ready to WORK this year. I’m no longer rushing myself, I’m no longer comparing, I’m no longer putting things off, I’m taking one day at a time, and God is FULLY in control of my life. I’m so ready for 2018! // What are some of your goals for the new year?
