Happy Wednesday everyone!
I’m getting back into the swing of things. Creative ideas are flowing once again, I’ve been bouncing ideas off of some trusted friends. Researching some new creative projects, stepping back and developing my concept. Letting inspiration and creative energy take over but also taking my time and not rushing anything.
I’m starting to realize the importance of taking a break to recharge. Cleansing myself of certain things so that I can regroup and come back stronger. There’s a blessing in slowing down, breathing, letting life and the things you are surrounded by inspire you.
The home decorating is coming along good. We got a dining room table everyone! Aaron’s grandparents gave his a brand new dining room set and I am sooo excited you guys!!
I’ve also transferred and re-potted my house plants too so as you can see we are making progress! lol Also, we finally got our wifi installed. We no longer have to use my personal hot spot to watch Netflix. Everything is coming together slowly but surely. I’m learning that patience is a virtue for real! I tend to get excited and rush the process but good things come to those who wait. So we’ll remember this blog post once our place is fully furnished.
This week I am moving the last of my things out of my Berkeley studio. My official move out date is February 28th. It is so weird seeing my first place completely empty. I moved everything out and even sold a few items. I’m going to miss my big window tree house, the natural lighting was so bomb. I had such a great experience living in Berkeley, I’ll also miss having everything in walking distance but I will not miss the parking tickets.
I was told I wouldn’t be able to afford a place of my own in the Bay Area, let alone Berkeley. My first place was not only liberating, but proof that God will always come through for me. I can honestly do whatever I put my mind to and I will never doubt that. There were plenty of times I was ready to quit and move back home.
I was also told Aaron and I wouldn’t find an affordable place to live in the Bay Area. We would have better luck if we move to Concord, Antioch, Vallejo or Tracy. With out budget, I thought we were only going to be able to find a bigger studio at best. Nevertheless with a little patience, God granted us an 800 sq ft apartment with a balcony!
I’m not bragging or boasting I am just giving my testimony to those who think all hope is lost and there’s no way things will work out. Have faith and take the risk no matter what people tell you.
Let Go and Let God
I am living breathing proof of how far prayer and faith can get you. If you go back and read my firsts blog posts, I was helpless when it came to living in the Bay Area and figuring out post college life. I was sleeping on couches, writing blog posts from my phone, and commuting to my moms house in Sacramento every weekend to wash and pack more work clothes. I was so excited to move into my studio and finally have a bed and a closet LOL I am no where near where I would like to be but I thank God for how far I’ve come. In the past year, I’ve bought a laptop for writing, raised my credit, got a brand new car in my name, moved into first place, got my passport and took a baecation to Mexico, planned events, doubled my income, worked with and learned from industry professionals, and now I’ve moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend. I’m doing laundry, washing dishes and cooking dinners at my own house!
I am trusting the process every step of the way.
I am loving the look and feel of growth.
I am living in the moment and enjoying this glow.
I am not comparing where I am in life to anyone else’s journey.
My journey is MINE. My story is unique to me.
I am confident knowing that what is for me will always be for me.
Only God knows what my future holds.
With every step, I am creating the life I deserve. Making our home a happy place, a sanctuary. It’s not perfect but it’s ours. I do not believe in letting current circumstances define who I am. I am taking risks and going after what I want. I am setting goals for myself and going after them. Everything I’ve accomplished so far, is something I have written down and added to my vision board.
I am manifesting my future. Speaking positivity into my existence.
Feel free to tell me some things you are manifesting or some things you’ve already spoke into existence in the comments below.
Thanks for reading & we’ll talk more next week!
