the year of awakening

Join the Pink Squad

The big Two-Eight…

Whoa! Where do I even begin? These last few days have been absolutely amazing…if I am to be honest, more than what I thought would be possible.

Let me explain…

For my entire life, I’ve had a plan. I’ve had a plan for how I feel it should go, and what I should accomplish.

And just like every good plan, I had a timeline.

Dating at sixteen.

Engaged at 21.

Married at 23.

Having my first child at 28.

Then of course, after that, my ‘happily ever after’.

Of course there were other things that I wanted to do in between, but these were my core desires for my life.

Then…things began to shift:

Dating at sixteen.

Engaged at 21.

Married at 23.

Having my first child at 28.

Obviously, I’m a little behind in these life goals. In the past, this is something that really bothered me. But this year, my year of awakening, I’ve decided I’m going to do something a little different.

Live & Let Live

Instead of feeling bad about myself, I’m vowing to simply live! While I’ll still have hopes and aspirations for my life, I’m scrapping my plans, deciding to hand it all over to God. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ” ‘For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

I realize now, that I’ve been so focused on my plan, and what I thought was best for my life, that I’ve totally negated whatever God has in store for me. Who knows? Maybe God wants the same thing, but its all about timing.

For waiting to be something so simple, it can be the hardest thing to do. Have you ever wondered why we have to go through this process of waiting? Why must we go through the struggles we go through?

I truly believe that God will allow us to go through a season of struggle, or having a to wait, to teach us something. He has an intentional plan for our lives, a plan for us to prosper and succeed, that we may not always understand or agree with. Like any child, all we have to do is trust in our Father…letting go of our own agendas.

I’ve been told that twenty-eight is the year of awakening. Honey, I am claiming just that — and more — for me and for you! I look forward to all I will learn this year. I look forward to the experiences I will have. I look forward to the people I will meet. I look forward to watching my business grow! Through sharing my own journey, I look forward to being a source of inspiration for others. Most importantly, I look forward to sharing this next year, and the years following, with you!

I’ve been dying to wear this dress from JPratt Boutique for the longest time! Of course, I’m in love with the color, its such rich shade of pink. But I’m obsessed with the design. Made out of scuba material, it has a form-fitting asymmetrical neckline that is so flattering. The life of this dress are its petal sleeves. Everything about this dress screams drama, and I am oh so loving it!
