You are not where you are by accident or incident. Everyone has a purpose!
Lately I have been thinking about forgiveness. I have heard that you must forgive others that have hurt you in order for you yourself to move on. I never really thought that was actually true until I experienced it. Many of us hold on to grudges with people, myself included, while that person sleeps well at night.
Being a Christian, I came to the realization that not forgiving is not Christ-like. I know, shocker. How can I claim to be a follower and not do what is right? Knowing to do the right thing and choosing not to is a sin. Also, how can I ask God for forgiveness if I’m not willing to forgive? I have to admit it is a process. Know better, do better. Time to move on. It’s hard but I know I cannot solely rely on myself. I need to forgive and let God handle everything else. Do I need to know all of the details of how it is going to work out? Absolutely not. But I know God is able to do it. It’s time to activate my faith.
My friend saw this video and tagged me on Facebook last week. Ever since, I have been trying to find his name and haven’t been successful until today. Trent Shelton is telling the truth and it makes SO much sense. Look up his name on Youtube to find more inspiration. A definite pick me up for Monday. Smile!
Sometimes I look at my life and wonder where I would be if I continued school. Pursuing journalism. Although exciting, I was not in love with the idea of having deadlines and writing about certain topics. I’m a free spirit. My mind wonders. There are times where I jump from one thing to the next. I don’t know a little about a lot of things but instead, I know a lot about a few things. All in all, God always know what He is doing. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason; not by incident or accident. A couple of years ago my Pastor told me that God wants to use me and that He has a great work for me to do. And for that, I would not need a college degree. At that point in life I didn’t have the greatest self-esteem. I had gotten kicked out of the same college twice only learning later I have a learning disability. I had doubted who I was and what I was actually able to do. I have to remind myself that God is my father and can help me. I also have to help myself. I think of faith as an action word. I have to put it to use. With that being said, fully put your trust in God. He knows what He is doing.
at the moment, I do not have any words to share.
I just thought I would write a lil somethin somethin to let you all know I am still alive and kickin.
I have been through a lot lately and do not know where to start.
I am sure when I feel like I have enough words, they will begin to flow.
I am up at 4 o’clock a.m. for no apparent reason. If this had happen any other time, I would have just prayed and then rolled over to fall asleep. Buuut not today.
I am frustrated and its interfering with my beauty rest. I have a friend whom I have known for quite some time and I am just tired of the way things have transpired. Although I may have not graduated college, I am still intelligent and that fact that someone has to constantly one-up me or correct me with their opinion ALL the time is starting to annoy me. I try not to let it get to me. Justifying the actual reason for my being upset isn’t working, Whenever I get upset, I either call people out or I choose not to address the situation. I am used to holding things inside but it’s getting to a point where I don’t want to do that anymore. If I’m unhappy and your words or actions made me feel that way, I want to be honest and tell you about it. I don’t want to let the little things bother me but it’s becoming bigger. If I don’t speak up, things will just get worse.
There are times I distance myself. Not to necessarily be rude. I just do not want to deal with confrontation. I need to grab the situation by the horns and speak on it instead of lashing out later because I bottled my feelings. There is a time and place for everything. I suppose now is the time. Well, maybe later today. 🙂

“I don’t wanna show it and right now I don’t even know what I’m saying.”
I remember seeing Elle Varner on the BET’s Awards in 2010. Her set was a part of their Music Matters. While not an absolute fan of the song she sang, I love Only Wanna Give It to You with J. Cole. The song was reminiscent of the 90’s. I felt like I was in the wrong decade. I didn’t think it could get any better until I heard this unique blend of what sounds like a fiddle and a dope beat. I have been listening to her album for the past week. My other favs? Not Tonight, I Don’t Care and Oh What a Night.
Say what?! I have these for sale—-check out my Etsy shop for the details.
