Successes of 2019; Goals for 2020
Goals are important. Yes it's kind of like planning but not really. The difference is, most goals can be controlled by YOU where as plans for your life are mostly controlled by GOD.

After quite a while of lack in motivation I am back! My desire to write took a spill once quarantine started, but there were a lot of changes that happened in Q that were very positive, and that is what I want to share today; why I am thankful for quarantine.
As you know, I am a firm believer in what GOD wants is what is best. While I know a lot of people lost their jobs, the kiddos could not go to school, and we were not allowed to see our loved ones; for me I looked at the positive side of it.
Luckily, I kept my job, I do not have children so homeschool was not a thing here, and I found new loved ones that I was able to get closer to. I am taking a trip down memory lane in my photos to show you how we spent our quarantine.
Somehow I feel like all of my "peace" training for the last two years had prepared me for this quarantine. I used to be a person who lived completely and fully in the future, the what if girl constantly. I was always trying to plan my life and the lives of the people around me. But when a death would suddenly happen, or a break up would leave me inundated with emotions I had to learn to let go of control. I went to therapy and really focused on my faith. Overtime I started to learn to only focus on the day ahead not tomorrow or next month. I started to stop wondering "what if" and just let things be what they were.
I loved this book. I love her, I love her honesty and she inspired me to walk away from toxicity and to hold onto faith beacause God is always working behind the scenes. We may not feel it through the pain, but we need to go through it to get to where we are meant to be. Her book sold out on Amazon and was #1 on the iBooks list the first week of the release. I am so happy for her. She built an amazing clothing company that she threw herself into during times of pain and it has been so successful. Her mom has done an amazing job with it. I think the book will help a lot of people face their past, confront their ghosts and hopefully move on with their heads held high with a new horizon in sight.
