Hello Sunday

Spring is finally here! Although it does not feel like Spring outside, it feels like Spring in my soul.

Spring is when nature awakens. It’s when the flowers and trees begin to bloom; the grass begins to grow; and creepy-crawly things decide to make their debut– something I’m so not looking forward to. Spring is when butterflies appear and mornings are filled with the wonderful sounds of baby birds chirping. Talk about glorious! Can’t help but smile.

I also love Spring because it’s when I feel most alive. For years I have believed it was the month of March. Now I’m beginning to believe it’s more associated with the season than the month. Yes.. it’s the season. For me, Spring signifies life, growth and new beginnings. It’s when I seem to smile a tad bit more.

Anxiously awaiting what’s to come. Hello Spring!

What season is most significant for you?

Rebuilding

No, it’s not Sunday yet. Smile. Was just reading through past blogs and decided to share a blog from last April.

Almost a year ago, I shared thoughts from a journal entry written in 2018. I had written I was finally rebuilding. I’m not sure why I assumed rebuilding happened with a single event. Well, it doesn’t. It happens in stages. When I think about it, I have been in the process of rebuilding my life over the last six or seven years. So today when I talk about rebuilding, I’m not starting from scratch, I’m just in another phase of the process.

Here’s my blog from April 2020:

Two years ago, on April 7, 2018, I wrote in my journal that I needed to – reflect, regroup, refocus, and rebuild. It took me a minute to get here, …

Follow Your Passion

Have you ever had so much you could write about that you couldn’t write at all? That’s how I’m feeling right now. Good thing I have my Facebook memories.

The following is a quote by Jen Welter, the National Football League’s first female coach. I shared this quote on March 17, 2019 along with my own words of encouragement, which I have also included below.

“Happy Sunday! Today’s the last day of Spring Break for some of us. Time to reset our alarms.😕 On that note, here’s today’s social media find. During undergrad I had a conversation with one of my classmates about being passionate about doing research and helping others. She said that I should never be passionate about a job. My passion should only be with my children and providing for them. Although she meant well, I’m so happy I didn’t listen to her advice and pursue other job opportunities. I didn’t choose my career based on money. I followed my passion. I love the work I do. I know it’s preparing me for other opportunities that align with my passion. God has always provided no matter how much my salary has been. So, my advice to you is, follow your passion.”

Y’all, I’m following my passion. Anxious to see where it leads me.

Thanks for reading. Enjoy your day!

Hello Sunday!

This is my third attempt at writing today’s blog. I have a lot to say, but I just don’t feel like writing or sharing. Imagine that– Shaun not feeling like sharing. Lol. Instead I’ll leave you with this:

When you know, you know.

I know it’s random. One phrase, many interpretations. What’s your interpretation?

Déjà Vu! Didn’t I Say This Yesterday?

We’ve all had déjà vu moments at some point in our lives. It’s like you’re standing somewhere and for a split second you think, “I’ve been here before,” or “I’ve heard this before.” Well, this morning while scrolling through my Facebook memories I found a post I made on March 8, 2019. Y’all, it’s so similar to yesterday’s blog that it’s scary. Wow!! Just take a look at the screenshot. I guess I really needed this message, or perhaps someone else needed it so much so that I had to post it TWICE. Just, Wow!!

I actually said this 2 years ago! Speechless

I’m listening God!
