Hey there lovely!!! How is your week going so far? I hope its going extremely well. You know, sometimes I sit back and take in everything around me and realize how extremely blessed I am. Although I am not where I want to be, I thank the Lord daily that I am not where I used to be. Do you ever just stop and say “Thank You Lord” ? In the grand scheme of things, we are really blessed. Anytime you encounter a bad day or when you feel down in the dumps, look around you and all that you have and know that you are blessed.
Lately, I feel like my ambition levels have been in complete overdrive! Its like sometimes i feel as though I can literally do anything; like the sky is the limit. As I look back at past accomplishments such as graduating the police academy and sustaining a career for 6+ years, starting my own business (although I didn’t stick to it), tapping into public speaking and several other goals that I’ve met, I realized that I fell in love with the challenges. Its an awesome feeling when you reach for a goal and you nail it!! I hate that all too often I see people, especially in my line of work, who have given up on their goals and dreams. I understand that life throws us curve balls but does that mean we bend over and die right then and there? NO!!! We cannot wallow in self pity and doubt and quit! We owe ourselves more than that. We owe it to our children, our families and to God to get up, dust ourselves off and get back in the fight.
One thing that really bugs me is when we find ourselves overcoming obstacles and adversities, there’s always someone who coin you as the person who thinks they’re better. Since when does self-improvement put you above others? It doesn’t. Do not feel guilty for pulling yourself out of a pit and striving for better. Gods plan is for everyone to be victorious and happy for one another..but of course in this lifetime….that’s not realistic. Regardless of the negative energy, know that the Lord brought you this far for a good reason and be sure to use every day to encourage someone else. Continue to pick one another up and help each other run the race. Whats for you will be for you and whats for them will be for them. Aspire to Inspire!
Right now I am getting ready to make a transition and I am looking forward to seeing where God is going to take me. Getting out of your comfort zone can be nerve wrecking but its so necessary for growth. Don’t worry, I’ll be taking you guys along for the ride. Thank you for reading and God Bless. xoxo
