24 THINGS I'VE LEARNED IN 24 YEARS

Thursday, January 14, 2016


As my birthday comes to an end, I am lead to evaluate the last 20 plus years of my life. While thinking over all of my experiences, I began making a list of the things I’ve learned along my journey. To all of those who have been apart of helping me gain this wealth of knowledge and wisdom, I love you and I am grateful for your presence in my life.



To God: The amount of diligence You have taken to shape and mold me humbles me. Everyday I desire to be more like you, and despite my stubbornness or disobedience You still manage to love me with open arms. Thank You for giving me the breath of life and thank You for providing me with more than enough fertile ground, rain, and sunshine to truly blossom. I know this goes without saying, but You are the most amazing thing that’s ever happened to me.

1) God is unfailing.

2) Love is the most important thing on this planet.

3) Fear is an illusion.

4) Life is an ever-evolving journey with no real destination.

5) Partnerships are essential in order to grow.

6) You’re not always going to get it right, but that’s ok.

7) My mom wasn’t being mean; she was just preparing me to survive in a world that wouldn’t always look out for my best interest.

8) Focus is absolutely critical to success.

9) Dreams are the source of a life worth living.

10) Forgiveness empowers you and propels you towards happiness.

11) Don’t devalue yourself for the comfort of other people.

12) Prayer changes everything.

13) Fear is not the absence of courage.

14) Your past is not a prediction of your future; it is a map of the roadblocks you should avoid in the future.

15) What you do solidifies what you say.

16) Invest in yourself.

17) Gratitude will transform your perspective for the better.

18) Don’t allow other people to define you.

19) Balance is something you will always strive for.

20) Just because you have an opinion doesn’t mean you always need to share it.

21) I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.

22) Trying to act like you have it all together is exhausting, just let the cat out the bag and be free of shame.

23) Everybody’s just trying to figure it out, have mercy on them.

24) Don’t let anything or anyone steal your smile; it is your divine right to be happy.



Thank you for all the birthday wishes I received. I appreciate all the love and support. Be blessed...
