If We Can Just Remember The Good Things

 I woke up this morning LATE (3am); I set my alarm for 12:37am to get up and do some work but apparently my iPhone alarm failed me (code for: I didn’t hear it going off, I slept right through it smh lol).

However, I woke up this morning with a determined mind to complete my tasks that I neglected the previous day. After taking a break from some research and practicing my piano, I began to talk to God. Sitting on my aging piano stool wrapped in my blanket, I walked down memory lane thinking about the things that God has done for me. 

Meeting supermodel Beverly Johnson. 

Moving to Brooklyn. 

Receiving my new hearing aids for FREE! 

The list can honestly go on forever. 

But, I also remembered the mistakes I’ve made because I didn’t understand who God really is, His character. And many times, I was so focused on my circumstances that I would forget all the things He’s done for me, the cool experiences I’ve had, and the things I’ve accomplished. And truth be told, we ALL do that sometimes.

We forget the things that we’ve accomplished. We forget the things that He’s done. Old memories, we call them. But, they are the good things. We must remember them. It’s imperative that we do. Why? Because they are the joys that give us the strength to keep going.

And it’s even more crucial that we remember what God has done (there is a divine plan whether we have possessed all the pieces to them or not). When we do remember those great things God has done, take into account that if He did it before, He’ll do it again! Even so, if God has brought your dreams to life before, then the many other dreams that you have – God is surely able to bring them to LIFE! 

That’s why it’s important to remember those good things

The Good Things. Remember them. 😉

Making the Shift in My Life: Long Tall Sally Edition

  Hello darlings!

Long time, no write! Lol!

I know it’s been a minute since my last blog post, but a break was needed. Sometimes life begins spinning and before it spins out of control, I’ve learned to take a step back and examine my surroundings. From that approach, I’ve gained much clarity of where I’m at, where I came from, and where I want to go. 

I’m a “MAKE IT HAPPEN” person and I’ve done just that in all of my accomplishments. But, the fulfillment wasn’t there anymore – my soul was longing for greater, greater than what I could ever imagined or attained thus far. 

You know, I thought I had it ALL figured out. But, nope. Not at all. 

Everything came to a halt. It’s been a “NOW WHAT?” moment.

However, I’m giving myself permission to change. Permission to make the shift. Permission to satisfy my soul’s longing.  And of course, change isn’t easy – this transition is rather ughhhh. Yet, I am excited on embarking another journey.

But, bear with me as I shift into the next phase of my life. I pray that as I change for the better and greater, you will be encouraged to do the same if necessary. 😊

Also, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Long Tall Sally with their TTYA x Long Tall Sally capsule collection which is super amazing! Many of you may remember me blogging about them earlier this year – a brand for tall women! However,  I’ve gotten my hands on (well my body lol) on the dopest items from the collection in which you see in the pics – PERFECT for Spring and Summer! I’m wearing the Powder Blue Culotte (pants) and Powder Blue Crop Top – my new FAVORITE staples in my closet that every girl needs too! And of course, I had to add my own twist to my attire! So I recommend you all to check this collection out from Long Tall Sally and have fun making the changes in your life and in your wardrobe 😉
