This was Jan 1, 2017. I brought in the New Year in Miami.
These are my favorite pictures captured in 2017. It was such a year of blessing. I just realized how much I traveled. For some reason when I travel, it makes me feel more peaceful. It’s like I’ve been on a spiritual journey for the past two years. I’ve always been close to God, even as a child, but lately I’ve felt like I need to search more for what God has placed me on this earth to do. Mediation, writing and prayer has been a HUGE help in my life. I’ve inspired those closest to me and even some of you are practicing the same things I’ve implicated into my daily routine and I’m so happy that it has helped a lot of you. If I wasn’t searching and seeking I wouldn’t have been able to share the things that I learn that helps us all in my opinion be better beings. I’m also thankful for those of you that take the time to share with me your personal journey and those that send me special emails saying thank you. Those mean the most.
With that being said, when you love to share, at times you can feel drained…so that’s why I’m always trying to replenish myself and feed my soul with positive things. As all of you know I answer all of your emails, direct messages and comments as best I can. I put so much work and time into my site and into sharing things with everyone around me. In the end, I know that this is the reason for my blessings. I’m also grateful that I’m able to have such a huge impact on people to the point that they would want to do the things that I suggest. This is how I know we all have the power to impact and help everyone around us. We just have to not be competitive, not mind sharing and be genuinely happy for someone if they get ahead even if they surpass you. This is the sole purpose of many people refusing to share…because they are afraid if they do so, someone might get ahead, steal the credit and act like you didn’t help or lead them… big mistake. There are enough blessings to go around!! If you know inside you are a light and you were put on this earth to share and help others then keep doing it at all cost! Sometimes you are the one that is supposed to help someone grow, and they cannot or will not help you and that’s OK!! Remember your blessings don’t necessarily come from those that you have helped.
My advice to you all for 2018 is to SHARE your wisdom with everyone who needs it and you will continue to be blessed. I promise you!! That’s why I will never change no matter how people act. I will always share my journey, knowledge and power with anyone that crosses my path… because I was put here on this earth to do so. xoxo
Note to self: Continue to seek…
