So, the past few months have been very, very busy. I have had a ton of things on my to-do list and this past weekend we celebrated many milestones. One sister got married and another sister is graduating from High School, so we did a Graduation photoshoot for her here B-More. The pictures are the bomb. Shout out to my BOSS friends of Ayomel Media and Only the Good Things (if you need a photographer/videographer they are the best to ever do it) Anyway, with all of the celebrations and things once my family left, I was left to reflect on what is next. Where I am now and where I want to be this time next year and I definitely don’t want to be in the same position. There is so much work for me to do but I also have to take the time and be grateful for the work I have done. Sometimes I get so busy looking ahead I don’t take the time to look back and see how far I’ve come from the starting point. I know…I know, when you are racing you keep your eyes on the prize but in life, if you want to stay in a positive headspace, I believe gratitude is necessary and I have to reflect on where I came from to not allow fear and anxiety to take over because of how far I feel I have to go. I am a SINGLE 34-year-old black female. People are waiting on me to get married. People are waiting on kids. People are waiting on me to buy a house. People are waiting on me to quit my job and be a full-time entrepreneur. I mean I have only been talking about it for 10 years. People are waiting….and by people, I mean me! LOL Sure there are others who inquire about the things mentioned but nobody is pressuring me like I am pressuring me. I wish I just knew when.
You get a word from God, but that timeline be if and contingent upon your response and his agenda and the waiting game can seem like SOOOO LONG. But I was reminded today that I am only responsible for showing up. God will do the rest. So, I challenge myself from this day forward to show up. Regardless of how I feel. If there are things that I desire, I HAVE TO SHOW UP! Oh, please note that you are not excluded from this. YOU OWE YOURSELF! SHOW UP FOR YOU!
We are so good at showing up for other people IT IS TIME TO SHOW UP FOR OURSELVES! Trust God and His process and KNOW that His timing is perfect. I know I have been MIA because if I’m honest I felt like I had nothing to say but now I owe it to myself to see EVERYTHING that God has trusted me with through. I will SHOW UP!
I hope you do too!
Until Next Time!
I love you!
