My Graduation Flowers and My Painting
But baby I'm back.
If you have been following my blog over the past few years, you have seen my struggle and progress.
The things I have prayed for years ago are now coming to fruition. I am learning to get my life in divine alignment and think in terms of eternity. *Courtesy of Bishop TD Jakes**
I happy to say that I am now an MBA graduate. I am once again a published writer. I am writing for an MBA Association. It felt really goods to see my real name, lol, in a byline. I know good things are headed my way.
Approximately three years ago, Bishop Jakes preached a message that mentioned how three years of struggle can lead to a lifetime of breakthrough. I have been in Texas now exactly three years. I graduated last Friday. I am in my breakthrough season.
What is in store for me, my dear readers? You have to stay tuned to find out.
P.S. Expect some major changes to this blog. It's gonna blow your mind!!!!
If you love me, leave a comment!!! lol
I am starting to see myself in the light of my future and I am eagerly anticipating what it holds for me. It seems these past few years in Texas has been fraught with many tests and trials. Through it all, I believe I am on purpose, in the will of God.
As I evolve, I am maturing in insight. I no longer see men as trees but as merely men. I have learned that I can cast my own life. Friends of the past are not necessarily going to be friends of the future. I deserve reciprocity of love, respect, and support. If we are not on the same page, the story will continue without you.
This is hard lesson for me. I have a habit of holding on to things and people for the sake of having something or someone to hold. I am so over it.
God is showing me how to open myself up to new relationships, friends, experiences that I would have been to timid to embark upon.
At this stage of my life, I am truly ready.
Oh yeah, I graduate next Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is a hallelujah moment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I started this journey almost 4 years ago. I was working at Payless, thinking is this what college got me? I decided to make a change. I changed my whole life to go back to school. At first I took some undergrad classes in business. I then studied up for the GMAT.
When I started school, everything was easy breezy. I then got a very high demand job that was stressing me out. I even took a semester off. During the interim, I moved to Texas.
I say all that to say that slow and steady really does win the race. You just have to work at your goal day by day, even when the odds are not in your favor.
I am writing this after spending like 24 hours finishing my graduation project. Today I bought my cap and gown. This is really happening for me.
I don’t know what tomorrow holds but I know Who holds tomorrow. I really do believe God rewards the bold. Those who dare to step out on faith.
So here I go – one step at a time.
