Hello All,

It feels so good to talk to you again. Lately, I have been feeling down. Some circumstances have happened, and it has made things seem unsolvable for me. I know I shouldn't feel this way, but I am. Even though I'm feeling this way, I know that it is just a test of my faith.  Instead of thinking about my circumstances, I should be thankful for the following:

  • Life
  • A place to live
  • Clothes
  • A job
  • A career that I love
  • Food
  • A way to commute
  • Family and friends who love me
I know for a fact that when circumstances happen, I should feel this way

Instead, I let myself get down, and I think of the things I cannot control. As I'm writing this, I know that a change is coming, and that change is starting with me. It says in Philippians 4:6, "rdo not be anxious about anything, sbut in everything by prayer and supplication twith thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." In other words, no matter what's going on, don't dwell on our, take it to the Lord in prayer.

I'm saying this to tell you (and me) that no matter what is going on in your life, don't just think about it to the point where it stresses you out, just pray about it. When I was still living in Mississippi, I was working as an intermittent telephone interviewer.  I was at a point in my life where I was not in the place where I should be. Although I was still freelancing, I was not making the coins that I should have been making, living with my mom, back in Mississippi, and it was really stressing me out.  While I was working, I started doing an interview with this woman. There was a question about health and the woman stated to me that if it's something in life that happens to her, that she just prays about it, and whatever happens, it just happens. I told her that I need to be like that because I'm a huge worry-wart! She then asked me if I was the type of person who overthinks and stresses over every little thing, and I hated to admit it, but I told her I was that type of person. She then said something that I will never forget, "baby, if you keep stressing over something you can't control, you're not doing anything but killing yourself!" Afterwards, she explained to me there was no reason to stress over something you can't control. I felt so relieved when  she said that, and after I finished the interview, I thanked her for her wisdom. At that moment, I felt this huge weight lift off of my shoulders, and I knew I needed to change.

It's 2015, and I'm claiming every breakthrough that is bound to come my way. I will not stress out over anything I cannot control, and I'm going to continue to live my life to the fullest. I will continue to design more garments and fashion illustrations, and keep myself in a happy place.

There will also be a change in my blog. I have prayed and thought long and hard about this next step, and I feel it is time to take it. I will let you all know when that step happens, but I will say that I am already excited about it.

As always, take care!

Until Next Time!
