So… today is my birthday.
Can I feel anymore monumental? I don’t know.
As I reflect on the last 365 days of my life, I realize that it’s near a decade of the most transformative period of my life. It dawned on me today that life has been defining me throughout my 20s, so ultimately crossing over to my 30s should be smooth… lol!
Call me crazy, but I remember going through a midlife crisis between ages 27-28. I was so depressed because my life wasn’t on a path I wanted.
One day I remembered a message from Les Brown in which he said, “To be where you’ve never been before, you have to do something you’ve never done before.”
I did just that!
I turned on my internal GPS and I began to seek guidance and direction from that still small voice (God).
Everything then began to change.
Purpose began to trigger. Divine connections began taking place and everything started falling into place.
Today, at age 29, I’m a contributing writer/blogger and a co-producer. I sense that I am walking in the will of God.
As I enter the last year of my 20’s I embrace life and its chronicles. I can truly say that patience is at an all new level for me, something I never embraced throughout my 20s.
I am more grateful now for the past because it brought me to this day and I am also grateful for my future.
-I promise to keep my GPS on to stay in tuned with God
-I promise to love unconditionally
-I Promise to take more risks… be daring
– I promise to do the things that make my soul sin
-I promise to embrace my journey
-I promise to work on my short-comings
-I promise to take responsibility for my actions
-I promise to do all the good I can to everyone I can for as long as I can
Here’s to my second ‘New Year’s Day.’
