I Vowed

I vowed it would be my choice

I vowed it wouldn’t be the same

I vowed I’d follow my gut

I vowed I’d open back up

Before I made their choice

I choose what looked the part

I choose what felt right

I overlooked the red flags

I overlooked the patterns

I overlooked my initial gut feeling

Oh but this time I’ve made vows to myself and I won’t turn back!

Learning to keep my very own promises.

The Truth Is

The truth is in 2015 I re-relaxed my hair to make another happy. I know, I know, what was I thinking? I thought maybe this would make things better, maybe it would erase the pain, maybe I’d be enough. Let me tell you this if you’re not enough from day one you’ll never be enough! Tough but it’s the truth!

365 Day Trial

Yes, you read correctly welcome to my 365 Day Trial! What do I mean? It’s my trial year and ya girl is out here trying her best!!

What exactly do I mean? well for over seven years I was stuck in a rut. You know going to work, church, family, and back again. I didn’t realize how much I got comfortable in living a routine life until my world was shaken (we’ll save the details on that for another post). Once that happened I decided to keep it shaking, moving, and grooving!!

I’ve always had a love for dancing, fashion, working with children, and of course animals. For over 10yrs I’ve solely worked within the education system as an after-school teacher, program director, and co-teacher. I wholeheartedly enjoyed working in the education system but I knew I needed to try something else.

I took the leap to venture out of the education system September 2017 and since dubbed this year as my “Trial Year” the year I try things I’ve always wanted to but never have. So, I took a bet on myself and went for it with everything within me.

Along the way, I’ve realized how much we allow ourselves to get stuck in a routine life. Our lives aren’t meant to be routine or the same day in day out. I am a firm believer in enjoying the moment’s life brings us.

Making this choice was hard because I dealt with fears from my past, thoughts in my head (CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT I GET OUT OF MY HEAD), and hurt. BUT the best part is that I did it for me and not anyone else!!

If you’re tired of the day to day then take a bet on yourself and Try something new or make this your “Trial Year” as well. I won’t be mad!

My Trial year is truly paying off I am happy, doing what I love, capturing moments, challenging myself, and ceasing opportunities.

Try it you just might like it!!

Validate Me

Validate Me She Said

Show Me That You Love Me

Tell Me You Care

I Need To Know You Will Always Be Here…..

The truth is the one she needed was right there all along. Unfortunately, her eyes were closed to the love, warmth, and continuous grace that kept her.

It’s my story, it’s my truth, its the fact that now I can see everything so clearly.

I see that I needed to appreciate me before I could appreciate another. I was guilty of putting all my trust in one person when in actuality I needed to trust God! In trusting Him I learned to appreciate me. I learned my strengths and came face to face with my weakness.

Only He could validate me like no other. Only He knows the ins and outs of who I am and what I need most! When I shifted my focus my light shined brighter than ever. When we place all of our focus on things above and not below we are left with His radiant glow. This glow comes from His unfailing love, unmerited favor, and amazing grace that radiates from the inside out.

They say you learn from your mistakes and that they come to make you stronger. I have found truth in this statement and I am learning, growing, and glowing through the process.

Don’t validate me

Don’t tell me lies

For I know where truth lies.

It’s that still small voice that calls my name

It’s the gift of life He gives each day
