The last two days of March, yikes. I really don’t know where the month went nor all that was said and done. But, I will remember these last few days of March because I have truly been blessed by some real talk from some good people.
I will tell y’all, I’m not a big church go-er, nothing against going, just haven’t found a church home. But I am Christian and believe the Bible is the word of God. God always speaks to me through other people. When I have some dilemma or problem that is keeping me up at night or causing me stress or when I just need clarity, a beautiful soul comes along and gives me a good word. This happened twice in the last 3 days – unbelievable. One conversation with a long time friend, who is really more like family, who shared a good word on overcoming fear. Fear can seriously hold you hostage, but he reminded me that things will never be perfect as a matter of fact, things may be down right screwed up but just go for it anyway. I keep waiting for the right time, the right amount of money, the planets to line up, just any reason to stay in that fear mindset. There is no right time, the time is NOW. And seriously in 10 minutes, we started a business venture. What what? Yep, slapped fear in the face and did the darn thing.
Then, on Sunday I attended a brunch with some awesome bloggers in The A. The brunch spot was Local Three and it was really nice, sorta rustic, the food and service were outstanding.
OK, soooo I really didn’t want to go and all morning I kept coming up with reasons not to go, but I’m so glad I did. The energy was so positive and supportive and honest. And here again, I had been thinking about blogging and was having so much doubt about moving my blog to the next level when another good word came from blogger goddess Marie Denee at The Curvy Fashionista who said follow your purpose and walk and how she had the same doubts and fears and stepped out on faith! She was “preaching” today and it was so refreshing to hear her speak authentically. And at the end of the day, that is the bottom line, be you, be faithful, believe what God says about YOU. I felt so blessed and honored to be among these blogger friends, walking in their purpose – Cheryl our hostess, at The KaShonna Files Louida at Product Review Mom, Nadeen at The Sophislife, and last but not least Shanti at Candidly Shanti! Check these ladies out, they rock!
I’ve heard people say God doesn’t speak to them; He does but you have to be open to listening and receiving. Lord I hear and I receive!
Have you been blessed or been a blessing lately? Tell me about it!
