Determine your purpose

I took this photo on our honeymoon in Bellagio, Italy- overlooking the Swiss Alps

Good morning and what a beautiful Thursday it is! I've written about purpose in the past, but it occurred to me that I need to speak about this topic again. Too many individuals are walking around and not living out their purpose. I completely understand that financial reasons often prevent individuals from not pursuing what makes them happy. Yet, I don't find this to be a good excuse to not live your dreams. From the bottom of my heart, I believe that God gives each of us special abilities/gifts that are unique to just us, and that none of our gifts are the same. However, one can not and should not be lazy with cultivating their gifts. You have to work hard in every way to nurture your gifts (just like watering a plant), and eventually it will come to life.

I'll give you a personal example. I always knew that I wanted to be self employed. Since I was a little girl, I remember going to my Dad…

My wedding

Hi beautiful readers. It's amazing how quickly weddings come and go, but I have to say that our wedding was fabulous. It was truly the best day of my life. All of my expectations were met and all of the hard work in planning was completely worth it. There are so many parts of my wedding that I truly loved, but a special moment was my Brother walking me down the aisle and both my Mom and Brother giving me away. I honored my Dad through a video and dance that I recorded and played during the reception. Everything was picture perfect!!! My husband and I took it all in and danced and enjoyed being with our guests the entire night. * If you're planning a wedding, my suggestion is to enjoy the process. For the most part, I enjoyed every aspect of my wedding planning and wedding, of course I endured stress at times, but that's also a part of the process with planning any large event and a part of being a BRIDE. 

Being present

Time has truly been moving along. I have not posted anything in a while, because I have been so busy. Between teaching at a college, running my private practice, planning a wedding, and preparing to move, I can't imagine how I am holding it all together. I give credit to the Lord for that. He will never give us more than we can handle, this is a truth that I have learned to accept and embrace. As time begins to drift forward and the wedding (which is literally 29 days away) comes and goes, I want to remember to be present in every moment. I want to take every moment in and not allow it to pass before me. I have always been the type of person who can not allow myself to be present in the moment. I am constantly thinking, reflecting, criticizing my life. In this moment, I want to remain true to me. Yes, I have my hands full, and that is stressful enough and I am finding that the smallest things have come to aggravate me. Yet in spite of all of this, I will not focus on the negative…
