A first start: a baby’s first sit, crawl or stand, a teenager’s first job or car. Our lives are filled with “firsts.” This is my first blog post. Yay!! Thank God! I guess you can tell I’m excited! Although I love to write, for all intents and purposes this blog is meant for positive dialogue to inspire, uplift and encourage. In a nutshell: keep positive!
As I write this post, some have decided to celebrate Independence Day or The 4th of July indiscriminately. It’s late or early, it’s after midnight, you choose. Although I am still awake, the booms, pops and bangs are startling and distracting. Will I allow these distractions to keep me from writing?…No! I will refocus, pray and continue writing. The fireworks is just a minor example of how we must keep positive even in situations that are not designed to make us happy.
In 2014 I started a different spiritual journey. In 2015 I joined a fitness boot camp and weight training. In 2016 I switched to a living space that is more conducive to my lifestyle and I joined Toastmasters! This all lines up with God’s will and purpose for my life. I don’t know about you but for me “firsts” aren’t easy, a first time means change. But I focus on the positive to keep positive.
Join me in sharing some of your latest “firsts.”
