Don’t be afraid to ask God for what you want. Ephesians 3:20 Now all glory to God. Who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Hey Chile!! 👋🏽 How are you? What is going on? I hope all is well with you.
Thangs have settled down for me in the last couple of weeks. I’ve been productive but I’ve been resting too. I’ve been taking care of in house thangs, ya know. Deep cleaning the house, making doctors appointments, dentist appointments, etc. I am a stickler for keeping up with appointments for the family and I. I did my grocery haul, toiletries, etc. Chile ya know, ya know. 🧽🩺🦷🛒
So, real quick check out my gym vibe playlist. Sometimes I be all the way turnt and then sometimes I just be vibing on a different level.🎧
I need to pick out 4 new books that I want to purchase for February. I’ve been browsing in my Amazon cart. If you only knew how many books I have in my Amazon cart that I’m waiting to purchase one by one or ten by ten. (Tee-hee.) I did order a few pairs of leggings from SHEIN a few weeks ago. Chile they were on sale so I got on that quick, mmkay. I looove these red pair. They were originally $16.99 and I got them for $9.99. I got a few other colors too.
I’ve really buckled down on my savings. I’ve been doing so good. I mean, of course if you know you know I stay with a fresh fill -in and pedicure. I love for my nails and toes to be done. Whether you hit up the nail salon every few weeks or paint your own nails and toes. I love me some prettaay hands and nails Chile. I am also on a healthy hair journey. I cut my hair in September. (I’ll speak on that in one of the next posts, k.) It’s been what, four months, almost five. I like my waxes as well. And I do get my lashes and my brows done from time to time. I’m not as consistent with my lashes though. I like the no lash, fresh face look. Especially with my short hair. But I do love when I get my lashes done too. I be winking and what not. 😉 (Haha!) I am a self-care/maintenance, up keep type of woman. When ya look good ya feel good. But the extra spending I’ve cut loose. Because Chile, I can spend some money. I have more Starbucks at home these days than pulling up at the drive through. I make sure I read at least four books a month before I order more books. Instead of purchasing thangs that I like, but then just sit in my closet for months on end without wearing them I had to stop. If I purchase something it needs to be put to good use and make sense ya know. It was a time when I was spending so much money on books it was crazy! I mean I am a bookworm. If ya know, ya know I prefer books over TV any day. But to be ordering over 20 books a month and not have even finished one book in the last two months is kind of like…
So yeah, I’m just trying to do my part. The work part. I’ve always been an avid prayer. It’s essential. No matter what, I am always praying, always! I wake up talking to Jesus. I go to bed talking to Jesus. Chile, now I done fell asleep on God so many times in my life, whew Chile. But I believe you should always, ALWAYS stay in contact with God. Never stop praying. There have been times I was out here acting like a plum fool. Cursing like a sailor one minute and praying the next second. I’m not proud of that. We’re not perfect people, but when ya know better you should definitely do better. #growth But never stop talking to God. That’s what the enemy wants you to do. He wants to silence you. So yeah, never stop praying.
Now I’ve said all that to say this, I am trying to do my part when it comes to my prayers. I know that God is working. He always is. He always provides. He never fails. I look at my life and I look ova my life and 🙌🏽.
My faith is high and it is a constant work to walk by faith and not by sight. Cause ya know life and it’s unforeseen circumstances can just, can just be life changing, but now I’m doing the work. So my self-discipline and self restraint have been a constant increase for the last few months. With me working out at 5 am, 4-5 times a week, saving money, putting down my phone and focusing on me and all that I have going on makes me feel fulfilled. Change takes constant work. I don’t play about my boundaries. It’s uncomfortable at times but it’s necessary! In my change that I have incorporated for myself and solely for myself I’ve seen doors open. I’ve felt thangs change within me and around me. That is what makes me happy. I love peace. I enjoy calmness. #serenity.
I’m so proud of me. And you, you should be proud of yourself too Chile. Like forreal, life is not always easy. Be proud of you. And celebrate ya small victories too! They count!!
Anyways Chile, let me wrap this on up before I keep this chit chat up for way too long. I am doing some work from bed. I love a nice green matcha or vanilla foam cold brew on my night stand with the candle lit and laptop open. Simple pleasures.
And the Lord answered me, and said, ‘Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.’
P.S. Follow me!
