Sweet Victory

As I enter into my thirties, I can say that my last year of being a twenty-something has been the roughest year of my life. Yet, I have learned so many things and grown in this last year. It is true, you don't know how strong you are until you are pushed to the limit and actually have to endure some tough times.

I feel that I am in a good place spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I'm also striving to do better and seeking to learn new things. Through the situations that I have been through I'm learning that you should never judge an individual off of their actions or appearance without seeking to find out what's going on within their soul.

So even though I feel like 30 is old, I'm excited to be entering into a new phase of my life. God is preparing me so that I will be able to inspire, motivate, and encourage other individuals. I know that in order for change to take place in one's life, that individual must first renew their mind. Health to me is not just about looking good. Rather it is about prospering spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. In order to teach others how to prosper I must first lead by example. I pray that God keeps me focused and allows me to continue to move forward.

The Aftermath

We always think it will never happen to us until it happens to us. Certain life events can change us forever and even some things will turn your life upside down. I can think of four things that have significantly impacted my life that I would have never thought would have happened to me. None of us are invincible and we have to deal with life as it comes at us.

Certain things that I have experienced in life allow me to relate to others that have experienced or are experiencing the same thing. The thing is if we didn't spend so much time trying to hide our imperfections from one another we would find that we have so much in common with one another. However, I understand that it is easier said than done. Many times it hurts to talk about the things that have affected our souls and our spirits. Sometimes, you will feel alone. Like no one understands what you are going through.

Even though I struggle with talking about some of my experiences, I believe that there is freedom in sharing your experiences with others.  I know that as I achieve balance in my life, I will some day be able to share freely with others.

As I look back over my life, there are some things that I would have done differently. Nevertheless, I use those experiences to make smarter decisions as I move forward with my life. Every decision has a consequence.
