Live and Learn

As I celebrate the 32 wonderful years that I have been privileged to live on this earth, i thought I would share some reflections that have been on my mind lately...

"Live and Learn, when you know better you do better". If there was one mantra I would like to carry for the rest of my days, this would be it. Life is one big lesson. I have come to learn that life will keep throwing you the same lessons until you heed them. That one lesson for me has been to fully trust and rely on God. I marvel at how far He has brought me and it gives me great confidence about the future. One thing I definitely intend to kick out of my life is fear. The Bible says that He has not given us a spirit of fear but of power of Love and a sound mind. With this knowledge, I am not afraid to strive to be my best self. I must challenge whoever is reading this that you must kick fear out of your life! It is your worst enemy; it will hold you back, it will stagnate you and eventually keep you from the life you truly deserve.

All in all I am grateful because no matter what happens I never question how blessed I am and how much God loves me. I choose to live with an open heart because the truth about life is that you never know where you’ll end up. So even as I make plans, I embrace this truth and keep believing, dreaming, hoping and always remembering to be more kind to myself.

Lastly I want to appreciate each and every one that stops by to read this blog, those that encourage me and those that even hold me accountable. You give me hope when I begin to doubt and you believe in me even when I fail to believe in myself. Thank you!

This outfit definitely channels my feelings about growing old because I think dressing your age is overrated! The label on this playsuit reads "11-12yrs", seriously! lol

Happy Birthday to me!!

Love and blessings
