Do you ever take out the time to just meditate on how far you have come and the things you have accomplished thus far? As I sit next to my window with the sun beaming on my face, I cannot help but to be anything other than thankful. Thankful because this little black girl from Mobile, Alabama, is living her best life and sharing her passion with others like you. Not many people can say that. It is so easy to journey through life thinking that our hard work and dedication is the cause of our glory, but without Christ bestowing upon us his wisdom, knowledge and understanding we would have and be nothing. By being thankful, it allows us to step outside of ourselves and give credit to others because a multitude of people have contributed to us in ways that we can’t even imagine. Friends, family, Ms. Linda next door who grabs your packages for you when you’re out —thank you so much Ms. Linda ♥— all the way down to the people that we exchange smiles with while walking down the street, have a benefaction in our glory.
So, when the troubles of life begin to weigh you down, combat them with words of gratitude and affirmation! Start looking at the glass as half full, because things could be a lot worse, instead of empty! I challenge you to go to war with negative thoughts by using your light and positivity as your armory to fight your way out of those dark places. Instead of saying, “I really wish things were easier,” say, “I am thankful for the way things are because nothing easy is worth having, and in the end I know it will all be worth it!” Now, I know that all of this is easily said than done; however, I am speaking solely from experience. Once you start letting gratitude guide you, you can take a step back and admire the beauty of perseverance. It’s a beautiful portrait once you put the brush down and step away from the grumble.
As always, thank you so much for reading. Please share your thoughts with me in the comment section below, and I will see you all in my next post.
Until next time……Peace & blessings to all of you.
