How blessed we are. For the ones in our life who love us. The ones who stand by us in good and bad times. The people who challenge you, who want to harm you, but instead make you a stronger person. Thank you Lord for your mercy, your Love that never ends. I hope to always be a blessing to all the people in my life, for i am blessed beyond words. <3

Making 2011 the best year ever

Do you know what you want in your life? if money was not an option what would you like to do, or have? Would that make you happy forever? I have so many dreams, The Lord has blessed me with talents that i love to use, do i have to just pick one to use for the rest of my life? I don’t want to pack everything else away in a storage closet, if i was suppose to only use one gift, why would have God have given me more? When I sat down and figured out what i wanted in life, i thought of things that truly make me happy. Money has never been my 1st on my list and it has even fallen to around 3rd.. number. 1) To always do what I love and be happy. 2) use what i do to make other people happy. 3) make some money while doing what i love to do. So when i came across this quote
“Success is not the key to happiness.
Happiness is the key to success.
if you love what you are doing,
you will be successful.”
-Albert Schweitzer
I decided to make that my ultimate goal for 2011.  Next i made a list of everything i love to do in life. What can i do to make money, support myself without having to earn a degree doing something i don’t enjoy. Being an Artist, i can never sit still for more the 20 mins, i like to change it up, where can work and do more then one thing. I wanna work for myself for the rest of my life, and always make a way to do so.
As I made my list of things i love to do whether or not people paid me to do them, i figured i can do a lot of things, and if i make a little money doing each,  i could be happy with that. Although i felt like a lot of things were in my way, talking it out with my closest friends helped me realized that i needed to jump and run with it, no matter what i had to do. I needed to make a goal sheet and everyday do things that help me get those things, other things are not gonna get me the places i wanna go. Within a day an hour! of deciding i was gonna jump, God had someone there to catch me! A friend willing to help me start this journey. I honestly could not be happier! in the total of 3 days i felt like i had everything on my goal sheet, now just time to start. I truly believe that if i didn’t figure out what i wanted and just gave it to God to help me get there, i would have gotten things in pieces. But how amazing is it that He gave me the things and people i needed, in the exact order i needed them?!? God’s timing is perfect! He knows every desire of my heart! I cannot be more grateful, I serve an amazing God! and His praise will always be on my lips!

 I’m excited to share this journey with all of you, and to be that encourager to you, the same way my friends have been to me. Follow me and my blog and Know that He is the ultimate giver, and loves to give you things! Lets all have an amazing year, starting right now! I would love to hear your plans and help you in anyway i can :)
Have an amazing rest of the day! and a great start to the rest of you life!
