Do You Know What Today Is?

IT’S OUR ANNIVERSARY!!

Yes! We have been exploring together for exactly ONE YEAR today! Man, I can’t even believe it! I mean I literally remember sitting at my desk (at work) wondering if I should even embark on this journey. I promise I’m so glad I did!

Journeying with you all has taught me so much about myself! I mean, this month last year, God revealed, I knew absolutely nothing about Alyshia-Mae. He showed me, in order to move forward, I had to look backward one last time. So, I chose to do the work! I’m still doing the work… I will forever be doing this work!

Wow! How did I miss the significance of this month? I’m celebrating our first year together while getting settled into an entirely new state! You all journeyed with me through my first trip to Kentucky! Christmas of last year! Now, I live here!!! On top of all that, 2 years ago, on October 6th, 2017, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior! As you can see, October has been HUGE for me these last couple of years.

Prior to this realization, I use to HATE the month of October! I mean between, clowns, vampires, bats, and zombies, I felt I couldn’t leave the house without being scared out of my mind. I would make sure to be locked in my home before dark and to turn off all the lights on Halloween, to ensure no one knocks on my door. Now, I just feel free. I’m amazed at how God will use a month I dread to bring me back to life! I’m so excited to see how He reveals Himself, even further, to me in this beautiful month!

Are y’all ready to explore on a deeper level? Throughout this last year, I’ve learned to accept all aspects of my past. With me being comfortable with, and accepting my past, it opens up an entirely deeper, more intimate level of exploring!

It’s a beautiful feeling to not fear judgment. To know who you are, in the Father. To accept your mistakes and FORGIVE YOURSELF, as you ask for forgiveness. I thank God for the person I am today, and am ecstatic to pursue Him on an even deeper level throughout this next year of journeying!

I want to take the time out to say THANK YOU ALL!! From the ones who have been with me since Taking a Chance, to the ones who are journeying with us for the first time today, and everyone in between… I LOVE YOU!

I appreciate you, you don’t know how much it means to know I have family in 56 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES. This is only the beginning! I am enthusiastic to see what this next year brings!!

Please note we will not be exploring this Saturday (10/12). I have to get some things situated here in Kentucky. We will be back to our normal schedule the following Saturday (10/19).

Stay tuned as I continue…

“Working on me- While sharing with you!”

I love y’all!

You Matter

~ Hey Family! This week has been really interesting, to say the least… I’ve seen so much sadness, hate, depression, and misery all around me. I want to touch base on that this week.

Let me be clear, this has nothing whatsoever to do with my mental or emotional state. I am in a very healthy, happy space. My goal of this post is to help someone take the first step in becoming the beautiful individual you are supposed to be! Ready to journey? Great! Indulge & Enjoy!~

I really want to take this moment to say if anyone reading this feels alone, or as if their life doesn’t matter, please know that is far from the truth! Sometimes it’s hard to see your value through all the pain and trauma that life throws our way. There are three facts I want to point out to you. Hopefully, after reading them you’ll see things a little differently…

Despite how you feel, you are very valuable to this world!!!

The life you’re living cannot and will not be duplicated by anyone. There is a calling (purpose) on your life that only you can fulfill! Your struggles are molding you into the individual needed to completely fulfill your journey. Okay, so maybe you haven’t quite figured out what you’re purpose is. IT’S OKAY!! Regardless of your age, race, or tax bracket, your purpose will present itself when you’re strong/healthy enough to handle the responsibility that comes with it.

I mean, think about it, if your purpose fell out of the sky right now, with a blueprint on how you had to live your life, what would you do? Would you be willing to give up any and everything standing in the way of you seeing your journey through? Would you give up your family, friends, or even your spouse?

Your purpose may need for your entire life to be turned upside down. Though this may not be a bad thing, you still have to be prepared for it. This season you’re in now is your preparation season.

Your presence is making an imprint in your communities.

Often times, we don’t even realize the many different communities we belong to. Some days we’re happy, some days we’re sad, other days we don’t really know how we feel… No matter the emotion we carry throughout the day it’s leaving an imprint with the people we interact with and even the atmosphere once we’ve left.

Have you ever walk into a room and just felt “off”? It’s because you walked into an atmosphere that had been shifted by the person who was there prior. Your presence has that same power. It’s up to you to choose how the atmosphere is shifted. Choose wisely…

Someone is looking up to you!

Between school, work, extracurricular activities, social media, and everything in between, we interact with so many people every day. Sometimes, we don’t even know the impression we’re making on the people around us. I promise you, If you were to disappear today there are so many people, other than family, who would miss you.

I know you don’t realize it but people look up to you. They admire the way you walk through life. They admire your drive and your determination to not give up. They aspire to be a little bit more like you each day. Though they may never tell you, you may be the lifeline that’s keeping them afloat

If when reading this post, you connected on any level, I want you to know how valuable you are. I want you to know how loved you are. I want you to know that you cannot be duplicated. Most importantly I want you to know I’m here for you.

If you ever need someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to email me at beautifulpassionatelove@gmail.com.
