Enjoy Your Journey

ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY

Often times we are in such a hurry to accomplish our goals and fulfill our dreams. What if I told you that you may not ever reach your goals or fulfill your dreams?
Listen, there are goals and dreams that will not come to fruition simply because we are speeding pass the journey. I often say, you must enjoy the journey because on the journey is where you grow. On the journey, you learn lessons for your future. On the journey, your faith is tested. On the journey, your charact...er is being fine tuned. The journey is for figuring out who you are and what you stand for and what you believe in. The journey is for someone else that looks up to you and it’s bigger than you just following your dreams.

If you miss it during the journey, you won’t be grateful for the accomplishments. Your dreams won’t be what you thought they were cracked up to be. You would have missed an opportunity of changing you for the better.

Enjoy your journey without comparing yours to others. Enjoy your journey without discrediting the small victories along the way. Enjoy your journey without apology.

Perhaps the reason you never make it to your dream is because you have not lived in your journey learning the lessons from failures or you have not changed. On your way to your dreams the journey is suppose to build your character for better.
If that’s not happening then the dream may not every come.

So the question is, if you die before you reach your goals, what has your journey been about?

Speaking My Truth

On July 22, 2017, I had the privilege of speaking to women of all ages and background who all had a common theme.  We were all beautifully broken in some way shape or form.  When I was asked by Tresha Williams to be one of the women of the Beautifully Broken, Broken But Fixable Brunch, I accepted right away and felt honored to be amongst such beautiful women.  Almost immediately I started second guessing myself.  Asking myself, what do I share? What should I keep to myself? In the planning phase, Tresha planned a photoshoot for all the ladies to take part in.  Meeting the other ladies was so inspiring.  I felt connected immediately.  It was something about these ladies that encouraged and empowered me. They will probably never know the impact they have had on me in just the short time we were together.  When it was time to prepare, I asked God to tell me what I should talk about.  I then wrote out several different speeches but none of them felt right for this particular event. (Side note: Those other speeches are dope for other conferences, so email me for your next seminar, workshop, conference, etc. - shameless plug).  After much contemplation, I decided to just let the words flow on that day. As I stepped up to the podium, I carried my journal book with me.  I was scared out of my mind.  How could I be unprepared in front of a room full of women seeking to be inspired.  However, it came to me, just speak your truth.  I spoke my truth about living a mundane life, dating, and more all because of low self-esteem.  I spoke on the things I felt was necessary for that moment and for me to say out loud.  I will forever be grateful to Tresha for being obedient and courageous to host this event.  I am beautifully broken, broken but fixable.
