Develop your vision

The last year has been AMAZING! In one year, I met my best friend in the world, got engaged to him, graduated with my doctorate, began working at my  private practice full time, began teaching at the graduate level, and am about to head to my dream destination, Paris! I truly could not ask for more. I remember not so long ago, I was in such a state of despair and anguish. I did not know if God was listening to me, and sometimes I thought that he heard me but did not care to answer. I could not have been more wrong in my thinking. Whenever I cried out to him, in those moments is when He heard me. Little did I know, He was preparing a path so amazing for my life!

Words have power

Over the last few years, I have become an extremely introverted person, when it comes to my dialogue with other people. I am careful with the words that leave my mouth and I am even more careful about the  words that I allow to enter my ears. I am intentional about who I share my thoughts with, and I have found this to yield such great results in my professional and personal growth. I have actively utilized my spirit of discernment which has often allowed me to observe such ugly in this world; how evil has caused people to be blind sided and to speak darkness into others. Proverbs 18:21, death and life lies in the power of the tongue. The Scripture said this then, and it's absolutely present today. We have to be careful who we allow into our inner circles, and who we share our dreams, successes, happiness, and even sadness with. Not everyone will be for you in this life. The important thing is to recognize those who are and cherish them.

Happy Wednesday!
