Today is my birthday and I can honestly say this birthday looks a little different to me. I am truly grateful to see another year. God has showed up and showed out in so many ways this past year. I opened my own business, I took leaps of faith that I only dreamt of taking, God gave me clarity in so many areas of my life and most of all, He continually poured His love into me. If I could offer you a bit of advice, I would say this…Live life to its fullest. Too many people are walking through this life merely existing. Take leaps of faith in all areas of your life…If you love someone, tell them. I believe everyone has a special someone who brings out the best in them and truly sees the better than anyone else has or ever will. Work on a goal you’ve always wanted to achieve. I’m a firm believer that it’s never too late to start a new goal. Don’t allow fear to control you or cause you to think you are less than. Every day you’re given an opportunity to live on earth is an opportunity to be used by God. Exhaust every single talent He has given you. Love people well. Share His love and be His love. At the end of the day, nothing else matters except the things we’ve done on earth to make His love known. Go forth and live, sweet friends!

This isn’t a fashion post, it’s a real life post. Social media is a blessing and it’s a curse at times. In reality, there are way too many people doubting themselves and striving to obtain things they see other people with on the internet. Everyone wants to be flawless, have the biggest house, finest car and nicest wardrobe. But, what do all of those things matter if you’re empty inside? The truth is, I’m not flawless and I don’t strive to be. I have physical scars and my skin isn’t perfect. I live my truth. I love who I am.
There are some people who always define others by what they do for a living and then the other half of people constantly try to minimize what people do. You know, the ones who never pay attention when you tell them what you do? So, if you listen to society, you’ll never measure up. I know that I am not solely who I spent many years in undergraduate and graduate school to become(a therapist). I am much more. Degrees are avenues to help us reach more people, but they should never define us. At the end of the day, I want to be an woman that is known for being real.
Whether I have 1 follower or 30k followers, I want to be someone who reminds people they don’t have to fit into a mold to be beautiful. We live in a world that constantly wants us to scream who we are and what we do for a living, but at the end of the day it’s who we are on the inside that matters. I challenge you, if you’re reading this…
Look in the mirror every morning and know you are worthy of love and worthy of all the things God has for you simply because you are His precious prize. Don’t allow the world to determine who you are. Keep your eyes set on the one who matters most. Our worth is found in our Father whose love never changes. You, my friend are loved, treasured and set apart… You are beautiful the way God made you and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
