I’m really focusing on gratitude lately. I’m not complaining. I noticed that when I stopped looking at what was wrong in every situation, things just started to naturally work themselves out.

Whenever there are setbacks or when things do not go exactly as planned I just have to remind myself that my journey is predestined and everything thing I have been through was exactly what I needed to get through to become all God has for me to be.

Found this online and wanted to share it with you lovely ladies!! Sometimes you just have to let your hair down, look in the mirror and embrace your best self even if it comes with flaws. I have learned that what ever you do work hard at it, and do it passionately or don’t do it at all. Hope this conveys a bit of inspiration for you as it did for me!! 🙂
