I know it's been awhile. A lot has been going on. No excuses honestly, just need a break from everything and everyone. Well I am back and I got a lot to say. This season is very difficult for me because I am reminded of this journey of starting Fabulous Things. I started this blog because of a major lost in my life. I had to pick up the pieces and find me again. I thought that once I started this journey the mourning of lost would somehow go away. It does with time, but I do have my moments. I felt paralyzed. I couldn't move again. I took "a break". I do that at times to focus on what's next. I have been in prayer about somethings. Heard from the Lord on numerous occassions but stayed still. Have you ever got an answer and just couldn't move. I was tired of fighting. Tired of putting on airs that everything was ok. Tired of it all. Life was not and has not went the way I wanted it and I quit. For a spell......
Recently, I made some much needed changes to my life and I am starting to feel better about life again. Don't get it twisted, I still miss M&M in the worst worst way. (You don't know who M&M is? Check out the Home page of the blog). I don't think M&M would want me to wallow. There is a whole life out there, a destiny, a purpose, and it's time to live again, love again, fight again. What really woke me up about myself was this article, "22 Habits of Unhappy People". Check it out below:
I had almost all the traits. To be honest, I didn't like me or my life and it showed. I woke up and repented to the Lord. Even in the midst of being down, God has shown great favor. He has blessed me in ways that people are in awe of. The scripture state in Isaiah 61:3:
Isaiah 61:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion-to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit-that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
We need to take off the garment of heaviness to have live life knowing that God got this. I need to investigate the areas of my life and change. I need to look at the woman in the mirror, be honest, and adjust anything that is not right. Make that change today.
