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. 😉

Day 6 NYFW: Recap

Hi darlings!

I hope everyone is staying warm in this awful cold weather! Now, that New York Fashion Week is over, I want to give you a recap on Day 6 which was amazing (and I think you will like some of the pics 😉 ). The other day I attended SkinGraft F/W ’15 Presentation – it was SO DOPE! Honestly, only cool kids can wear this collection and you’re cool so I know you’ll LOVE it! I had an amazing time; there were several celebrities in attendance such as rapper Fabolous and Miss J from America’s Next Top Model. But see below for pics and enjoy! I’ll be posting my review on Skingraft’s collection shortly, so stay tuned (maybe some video action?)!

Hi darlings,

Today is the last day of New York Fashion Week which I’m super sad about and thanking God for at the same time because Lord knows I’m drained. Lol! However, I challenged myself in my attire today, tried something totally outside of my comfort zone. My look was inspired by my Papa as the hat belonged to him. I really didn’t know how I was going to put it together creatively and struggled to bring it to life this morning! But, I found my confidence in this look and decided to rock it out. Hopefully, you’re inspired 😉
