Life: it can go in two directions; for better or for worse. Many believe that their life is always going in the opposite direction, for the worse. I see and hear people say “FML” (sorry) or “I hate my life” for the stupidest things yet you only have one.
Yes, we all have bad days but most importantly it’s up to you to allow that bad situation to ruin your entire day.
Nowadays, I tell people make it a great day, make it an amazing day, or be blessed on this amazing day. You are in charge of the outcome of your day.
Yesterday, many employees cried to me in confidence, yesterday my teacher forgot to tell me I needed an appointment to take a midterm therefore I couldn’t take it, yesterday I needed to be in the Lords house but I decided to assist family instead, yesterday it was 65 degrees and I was at work all day and couldn’t enjoy it, yesterday all of these unexpected occurrences gave me a pounding headache along with a few other things. I was upset for ten minutes I won’t lie but I didn’t let it steal my joy!
Thank God today for opening your eyes and declare that today will be a good day. You control the outcome and stop saying your life sucks because when you look at the small positives they make this life worth it.
Many blessings to you and go out and make today great!!
These past few months have been humbling. Extremely humbling. With the launch of my book and branching out my business, I had to sit and evaluate a few things. My website subscription was due and I wanted to add this blog to the website, then I started thinking that it was not such a good idea based upon the content I used to blog about when I first started. Then I heard God say to me, “It is okay, it shows the beauty of where I have taken you from.” So humbling once again, without God I would not be where I am today but my past has allowed me to evolve into who I am today.
I wanted to share this with anyone who feels that they are not good enough for God. He doesn’t want the “perfect” son or daughter who has dotted all of their I’s and crossed their T’s. He wants the perfectly imperfect you. Be who you are and walk in God’s way, the rest will fall into place and that is when His will will be granted.
I love you and thank you for always reading.

Trusting someone can be hard.
Loving someone can be more difficult.
But, knowing that you can trust in God because God is love.
Now that is priceless.

I wrote this quote in the middle of my notes during my Psych class this evening. We were learning about personality and I wondered when will I ever start living for myself? As long as I can remember I’ve always put someone else before me. I can’t say that is necessarily a negative trait but I don’t see much positive in it either. I allow others to “change” me for the time being. I am so wrapped up in being who they want me to be that I forget to be me. Whoever that person may be is an amazing person… before the change. That is who I need to become all the time. I do not want to be that wife and mother (one day) who starts living her life once her kids are ready for college. I am sure I wrote this in a blog post before but for some reason it sticks this time. I am a habitual thinker who is extremely observant and a genius in my own right. Who isn’t? I won’t say that my mind and the way it works is a negative trait because it is something God gave me yet how I use it… well that’s another story. I am learning and unlearning at the same time. Change can only happen if I want it to. One cannot allow another to change them if they are not ready to be changed. I want to change me and someone else may not agree with that change but the people who are supposed to be in my life will embrace the change and accept me for who I am.
This is a new season! I have a new outlook on life and what it means to truly be me and I am looking forward to tomorrow… you should too.
“The way to predict God’s future is to look back at His past performance! He is faithful! You can trust Him! All is well in the end; so if all is not well, it’s not THE END!”

I love it when little quotes speak volumes. The first half of the year has been interesting. However, the second half will be greater than the first! I am looking forward to August, September, October, November, and December. I do not know what is in store for me but, I do know that I have so many ideas, visions, and tasks ahead of me. I can only see one thing flashing in my mind…. “TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME” …. so that is what I plan to do. Take it one day at a time. I know I serve a God of more than enough and I am going to do exactly what He tells me to do in the coming months so that I can tell others that HE IS REAL. (John Gray)
