Mistakes Are Going to Happen: Keep Moving

We cannot allow the fear of making mistakes stop us from moving forward. Let’s make our mistakes, regroup, refocus, then move on. Y’all, our purpose is too great to let a few mistakes stop us!♥️ ~ Shaun

Growth!

Hello!!

Y’all, I woke up this morning feeling rejuvenated! You wanna know why? It’s because I actually slept all night.. ALL NIGHT! I went to bed around 11:30 and didn’t wake up until 6:30 this morning. Listen! I haven’t slept all night in ages. Like, years! Honestly, I don’t even know how to process this feeling. It’s like being on a great vacation and being in love all wrapped in one great feeling. Whew!! I had noooo idea a night of great sleep could make me feel this good. I must do it more often.

Anyhoo… Because I slept so wonderfully, I didn’t draw or post a quote this morning. However, I did find a quote in my Facebook memories from last year that I’d like to share. Usually, around this time of the year, I’m releasing something. However, this year, I have nothing to release. In no way was this an uneventful, stress-free year, but I have nothing to release. Nothing. Perhaps I released everything throughout the year. This year I didn’t hold on to hurts and disappointments as long as usual. I processed and released them quickly. Smiling. Growth!

Facebook Memory: December 23, 2021

It is amazing how feelings, thoughts and things can keep us emotionally trapped in the past. We must believe that when God removes something or someone from our lives, it is meant for our good OR their good (yeah…it’s not always about us). Whatever God is telling you to release, release. Your purpose depends on you letting go and moving forward.

Whatever or whoever was left behind was left for a reason. With this said… Whatever or whoever remained, remains for a reason. It’s all about purpose. Y’all be blessed.♥️ ~ Shaun

The Beginning of a Journey

Happy 5th Blogging Anniversary to Me!

Until I read my journal entry from 2017, I had no idea I began blogging in December of that year. My first blog, the one I’m sharing below, was written on December 4, 2017. My “official” first blog was written on December 6, 2017. Boy were my goals and aspirations different. Things changed. Life changed. I really was a different person– a totally different person. As always, God’s timing is impeccable. I needed to re-read these today. So grateful He loves me.

Word of advice– Be careful not to let life or people break you. Set boundaries. Only give from your overflow. Know when to cut ties. And lastly, protect your peace!

Here’s the very first one!

I was born in the Mississippi Delta. I was born to a teenage mother. I was born an African American female. Some would say I was born a statistic. …

Never Lose Sight of Your Purpose

It’s so easy to become distracted by the need to complete tasks and mark things off our checklists that we forget our purpose– our Why. Today, I encourage you to remember your purpose. Remember why you initially wanted to make a difference.♥️ ~Shaun
