Hey Beautiful People! The other day I had to run out of the house and just threw on my Syracuse vintage college sweatshirt and immediately wanted to style it with my, oldie-but-goodie, Calvin Klein ankle boots. While out I caught a glimpse of my reflection in a storefront window and not only was totally into my fall fashion this season, I realized I was starting to …
Y’all don’t mind if I get comfortable, right?
Ahh, so much better.
… I realized I was starting to feel like myself again! I was beginning to get comfortable in my own sun kissed brown skin, my perfectly imperfect body, my strategically planned and unplanned decisions, and yes, even my collection of hand selected and sporadically curated closet full of clothes! Now, I understand this may not sound like much to many but, for me … it was everything! It’s confirmation of my prayers being answered!
So, you’ve read the title and you now you want to know what happens after you start to receive your blessings? Well … You enjoy it.
I know I’m not the only one that has found themselves in a state of “How did I end up here?” or “Why me?” at some point in their life. Yea, we’ve all been there.
I’ve had to remind myself that life doesnt happen to us but rather it happens FOR US. Let that sink in for a minute.
Just that simple replacement makes such a difference. “FOR,” not To.
Life happens FOR us to wake up, FOR us to show up, FOR us to GLOW UP! Life is always happening, we just have to be the ones to choose the “for” part. I’m choosing life to happen for me. What will you choose?
I hope you choose to receive all the blessings to come your way. I hope you choose you every time. I hope you show up and glow up because you KNOW what’s up!
Beautiful people, we have MORE life to live! Let’s get to living.
until next time,
