Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know I haven’t posted since June. However, in my defense, I have been in the lab working on projects, traveling, launching campaigns, starting new ventures and more. I haven’t neglected the blog on purpose—promise.
Lately, I’ve been in the process of distancing myself from all things negative (vibes, people, and thoughts) because you become that which you surround yourself. I’m happy, and I want to keep it that way. I am so blessed and highly favored, and I owe it to myself and those in my circle to celebrate that. There is nothing wrong with allowing your light to shine brightly, especially if that light can help lead someone else to where they need to go. God has given me talents that He expects me to use to make the world better and for the upliftment of His Kingdom. My life is supposed to shine brightly because of the light of Christ that shines through from within.
There are those who will not thank you for your work. There are those who will not appreciate your efforts. There are those who will try to tear down what you have worked hard to build. And that’s okay. You can’t get caught up. I had a realization recently about myself, I need to stop being apologetic for being me. I’m unique, quirky, but I’m also fiercely loyal to the people in my life. I stand by the motto, no matter what happens, I refuse to treat people how they treat me. I will always try to take the high road, smile in the face of adversity, laugh at the randomness of my life whenever possible, and continue to not take myself too seriously.
I’m in a great place emotionally right now. Love, Laughter and Light prevails. God told me, don’t be sorry about being happy, being fabulous and yes, even being in the spotlight as long as I put Him first…Point taken Lord.
Side note, it’s October, which means it’s been two years since me and mister have been together as an official couple. Feels good. Looking forward to more good times with the man who is not only my love but one of my best friends ever. Enjoy my Friday musical collection, fitting don’t you think?
