We’re Progressing

Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-

So this evening, I fell into the trap of comparison and insignificance.  For a split second, I forgot who I was- i truly did.  I actually allowed the word can’t to come out of my mouth.  Crazy, huh? Sometimes God allows you to be tested on the same things you encourage others with, this happened to be the case tonight,  Thank God for good family and friends because I  could feel my face getting hot and tears leaping for the chance to be released from my eyelids….I could feel my eyes filling with tears.  I was so frustrated with myself and what I had to do that I simply broke down.  I broke down, but I’m so happy that even in this – I progressed and I moved forward.  We’re constantly progressing forward- we’re constantly learning and in times of frustration we learn the most about ourselves.  I hope you all are having a great evening….

Until next time,

Mo 🙂

I’m Proud of You

Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-

The best words we can hear from anyone in our lives are “I’m so proud of you!”.  These words fill us up and makes us feel good on the inside.  My dad has a tendency to say these words to me randomly, in the spur of the moment.  I used to brush these moments aside as if they were nothing but as I got older I came to realize the significance of these tender moments with him.  My dad is very affectionate and loving but he doesn’t say a whole lot.  He is a man of few words- so when he sits you down and tells you how much he loves and appreciates you, this is a big deal!  He always looks me in the eyes and say “Baby girl, I’m proud of you!  I’m proud of the young woman you have become.”  These words bring such joy to my heart and they encourage me to continue living life the way that I do.  So today, I decided that I would like to share that same joy with you.   So, I repeat to you the same words spoken by my father to me- “I’m proud of you!  I’m proud of the woman/man that you have become.” I hope that your heart is warmed with the knowledge that someone believes in you and thinks highly of the life that you choose to live.  I love you guys and hope you guys have a great rest of your day!!!

Until next time,

Mo 🙂

P.S.  Even if no one else believes in you, I believe.  Even if your dad has nothing positive to say to you, I speak positive things into your life.  Even if your family doesn’t think highly of you, I think highly of you- so does God and His opinion trumps the opinions of others.  Be encouraged and hang in there!
