We are only prisoners if we choose to not break the chains but I choose freedom…
My mind reminisces of the events and treats of this last week or so. So many blessings and realizations that can be counted, a few frustrations, and some photosensitivity issues too. Overall, I’m encouraged and inspired to do even more, not just for myself but for others. So many individuals suffering around this country and around this world. What can I do to make a difference?
How can I leave my mark outside of just financially giving? I ask God to consider the works I’ve done when the end comes but will my works be worthy of consideration? We all must be willing to shine that light upon ourselves and look in the mirror. Do we reflect good things or are we selfishly going about our journey? Although, I have been here before, my time in Laguna Beach has proven to be more eye-opening than before.
I’m inspired to not just continue growing my career but to continue to grow who I am and what I can be. Most of all I’m inspired by who I can help if I continue to work hard to reach my dreams– financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We are only prisoners if we choose to not break the chains but I choose freedom.
The calming atmosphere meeting the lush expression of God’s beauty…
One of the best places to have brunch and enjoy the views that Laguna Beach offers is Las Brisas! The calming atmosphere meeting the lush expression of God’s beauty outside provides an unparalleled experience. Everyday I’m inspired to work a little bit harder each day just so that this is my norm. It can be yours too with research, hard work and a little patience. Oh and of course some good food.
Waves. Flowing in and out…
Waves. Flowing in and out as the rip tides appear in the distance I think of life here. How amazing it would be to allow my stress and worries dissipate with the sound of the ocean crashing against the coast. Praying for an opportunity to make my life more meaningful than just a steady job and comfortable quality.
What about my dreams? What about living? I am alive but am I living if I’m not doing everything possible to reach my dreams? I know I have great things coming in my life but it’s important to recognize the work that must be done for these ocean views. For this beach life I must be my own brand, my own business, my own dream. I’m ready to do what I need to do to bring my dreams to reality. I’m divinely blessed but now it is time to bless divinely.
I’ve had this mantra that I’ve been repeating to myself, day by day…
Finally…. I’ve taken that first step towards something. The something that will make a difference in my life and afford me the balance and the passion that I’ve searched for.
All in God’s timing is what I tell myself, I have to remain patient and wait on this blessing. I know it’s going to be difficult and stressful but what in life worth having isn’t. I see the light, I feel like I have a plan I can stick to and a plan that I can actually achieve. Goals. We all have them, we all fight for them, for that dream to become fruition. This may not be my dream but it is a step towards that. And for that I am grateful. I’ve had this mantra I’ve been repeating to myself all week, day by day….
A week of stress and deadlines that are being met but barely. I’m still shining more than my peers (Beyoncé comes to mind) but is it enough? Life just keeps handing me thankless opportunities to grow and develop the type of professional I want to be but do I want to be a “professional” maybe I just want to be creative! Then again, I do like making money, sometimes too much or maybe not enough. I have associates that are making the big bucks but are they happy? It reminds me of a phrase that one of my professors use to utter, ” Money can only buy happiness , if the happiness you after can be bought.” It’s time to take steps, steps to achieving and being all I want to be. All I want to be is…..
