On this very day 34 years ago on a Wednesday at 10:54 a.m. a miracle happened. After 15 years prior to that day, my beautiful mother and father had tried to conceive with no success. My mom was told that having children was just not in her future to her dismay. Then God sent an angel in the form of Dr. Patricia Sanders. This God-fearing doctor told my mom, “between me, you, and the Lord you will get pregnant”. Well, about 2 months later I popped up on the scene. I can’t even imagine what type of joy my mother felt, but the way she has been the most phenomenal mom on the Earth to me gives me a glimpse.
You see, I am a miracle baby, so my parents have made every single birthday since my birth a big deal. From pizza parties at Sho-Biz (now known as Chuck-E-Cheese) and sleepovers to an amazing sweet sixteen and surprise 21st birthday party. I could not have asked for a better series of celebrations and now that I am older they still never forget, but I have taken over commemorating my special day as a tribute to my parents never giving up on conceiving and to show my gratitude to my Heavenly Father by basking in celebration.
This is chapter 34! On this day, I declare and decree that this will be the best year of my life yet and I know this to be true because my faith and drive tell me so. I will accomplish more than I could have ever imagined this year. I will experience love in an amazing way. I will gain a closeness with God that I have never even imagined and watch His glory reign in my life. This year I will be more organized, manage my time better, read more, and gain financial fortitude. Chapter 34 will bring doors of opportunity that will astonish me. This is destiny unfolding. For 34, I will focus on the bigger picture instead of wallowing in minor setbacks, but I will spend more time appreciating the small victories because those count too.
I know some of you are probably thinking, how can speak with such boldness and intention? My question to you is why aren’t you doing the same? You see, I am creating my best life lovies and let me say that a phenomenal life it is and will continue to be. I am currently reading You are a Badass by Jen Sincero and she said, “The moment you have the audacity to start believing in the not-yet-seen, your reality will begin to shift”. Let me just say that this shift is already in motion and I cannot wait to see what happens.
This year, I will love myself more by getting more rest and achieving a healthier weight through regular exercise and eating clean. I will develop excellent habits and break free of those die-hard bad ones. I will give more of myself to my community and of course, that includes you lovies. Chapter 34 will be the beginning of my reaping season as I have sown many good seeds in the past. I will tell and show the people I love how much I cherish them. I will block out and let go of everything and everyone that doesn’t give me positive vibes or is not pushing me towards my pursuits. This year I will readily forgive myself and others. Making my own way prosperous will become a thing of the past and allowing God to bless the work of my hands will be my new jam. Fear will no longer hold me hostage. I am going for everything fear has told me I can’t do or won’t have because God has not given me a spirit of fear; He has given me a spirit of love, the power to overcome fear, and a sound mind that hears His voice clearly.
Watch out world! This miracle is ready to perform. I am talking different, walking different, and living my life like it is golden. This year I won’t allow anxiousness to overtake me and invade my thoughts while infiltrating my heart and mind with clouds of clutter filled lies. I am a warrior and I am praying and slaying this year. Broke will no longer be a part of my vocabulary and bills will become fewer and fewer. As a matter of fact, you can just call me the miracle on a mission.
My mission is to inspire and empower others, especially women to take charge of their destiny. Every day I am moving closer to accomplishing my worldview of helping women develop a self-love that is so undeniable the world will see them as a force to be reckoned with, but I know that this begins with me. This is why I write. My black and white storylines are the key to freedom for me and my way of helping set others free. It’s a new year lovies and you too will begin a new chapter. Whether that chapter is 19, 25, 36, 48 or even 75 it’s yours to write. Life is never over until we stop learning and pursuing it with passion. So what will be your story be? How will your destiny unfold? Whatever you do, make it big and make it bold, but most of all declare it BLESSED!!!
Until next time…remember to live every day like there isn’t another that will follow it!
