God Bless These Twenty Somethings


I just recently celebrated the 2nd anniversary of my 25th birthday (one day I’ll be able to say I’m 27 and it will feel right but that day is not today lol) and I’ve been feeling so many different feelings, the most overwhelming of them all being gratitude.

These twenty somethings have had their ups and downs but 26 has been one of the best years thus far. The finish line of my law school journey is finally in sight, I received exciting employment opportunities, and my best friend asked me to be his wife. I’m incredibly proud of each one of these things. But overall, 26 has been so great because all the seeds I planted years ago for my future finally began to bloom.

In my early twenty somethings I would dreaming of the life I wanted to live. I knew I wanted to go to law school, I knew I wanted to live in a city, I wanted healthy relationships in my life, and I wanted a husband (lol). I created a vision board (I wrote about it here), a five year plan, and got to work. Above all prayer was the true key to my success. I prayed on those dreams. I asked the Lord to order my steps and to guide me to life HE wanted me to live. At 27 the dreams that I have for myself and the life that God intended for me seem closer than ever before. I am beyond grateful.

As 2017 is coming to a close what goals or dreams do you hope to accomplish? What things are you proud to have accomplished? What do you consider to be the key to your success?? Let me know below!

    Prayer is definitely a key for success. I’ve been reading the 40 day prayer challenge and it has truly given me insight. A goal I accomplished is relaunching my blog! It’s been a long time coming and I’m proud of it 💕
