Reflecting on the Little Things

Wow I hope all of you had a very happy Thanksgiving, well spent with your family and full of rest and fun! I hope you were able to be fully present while spending time with your loved ones and fully enjoy it. For me, it was truly a refreshing week getting to see my family and friends. I feel so refreshed and encouraged and full of a new hope. (Star Wars?) 

If you went Black Friday shopping, I wanna know what good deals you got! I actually didn’t go Black Friday shopping this year. I shop everyday so I only bought things I actually needed which was face wash and moisturizer from Clinique haha. They are still having 25% off right now if you want to take advantage of that!

Reflecting on the Little Things

Happy happy Sunday everyone 🙂 We’ve made it to Thanksgiving week! YAY! I am so excited to get to see my family and friends in Louisiana and get to REST. This week ended GREAT and I think that’s all that matters! I love Sundays and I love getting to spend it with my New Life family. I am always thankful to God that I can be fed every Sunday morning when I go to church. God takes care of me and always gives me something I need to hear/experience. I am unbelievably thankful to be at New Life Church. We wrapped up our series on studying the book of 1 John and Pastor Jason talked about receiving God’s love. God is always the initiator and we only need to receive and that’s where everything else flows from…forgiveness, loving others, staying joyful, finding peace. This morning was a needed refresher and I’m simply brought to tears with how taken care of I am here in Fayetteville. Thank you God. Ps. 55:22.

Reflecting on the Little Things

Happy Monday everyone 🙂 I apologize for being a day late on my reflection post – I have no excuse other than I completely forgot, even though it was on my to-do list! I am such a forgetful person, that is for sure true about me and I live through it. Haha I had a great week last week. Started a little emotionally/mentally unwell which turned into physical sickness..boooo. It’s just a little cold..sore throat, runny nose, and achy feelings. I feel better today, though, just stuck with a cough. But it was great because I didn’t get too sick to not do everything I set out to do!

Isn’t that the only thing we are concerned with when we get sick? Is not being able to accomplish our to-do list? That’s our culture today…we MUST get the list DONE or we will be behind and we can’t afford to be behind. We must be going, going, going…

But we must also breathe. Take a break. That should be in our to-do list. I’ve started to take a full day to do that. I’ll go hard 6 out of the 7 days of the week if I get that one day to rest. We need it to be truly be effective.

Reflecting on the Little Things

Hello Sunday FUNDAY! Guys I am so excited to start this new segment on my blog!! Starting today, I am going to post on Sunday evenings in a new segment called “Reflecting on the Little Things.” In this segment, I will discuss things I learned/loved/hated/did during the previous week. This will give y’all a glimpse into my every day life and also show y’all how I find the little things to appreciate (and will keep me accountable to continue to appreciate the little things). I will talk about songs I’ve been listening to, foods I’ve tried/cooked, revelations I had, difficult things I had to endure… My big blog posts are for fashion and beauty so I probably won’t be discussing things like that but these will be mainly me chatting it up, personally, with you guys. I think it will be fun and we can all learn from each other.  Continue reading
