In January 2019, I decided to take a leap of faith and change my life. I found myself depressed, overwhelmed, literally sick from stress and anxiety. All I could think was, “God, rescue me!” My marriage was suffering, my job was extremely toxic, and I was dealing with a wealth of other things including motherhood. After crying for months on end, I decided that no one could rescue me, but ME! I knew that I had to do something, so I did!
I quit my job. Now hold on, I had a plan, faith, and savings. LOL. I eventually left my marriage, and I completely shifted everything around me. Hey, if you want different results, you have to do things differently, and I was desperate. I was desperate to be genuinely happy. I was trying to be everything for everyone, and I honestly lost myself. As women, we try to do it all!
Through this season of separation, I will admit it was extremely difficult. I had to face all of the things I did not like about myself and truly reflect on what I was doing to hold myself back from reaching my optimal level of happiness. It’s funny how life and isolation can be our biggest game-changers in shifting our mindset and identifying our true strength within. I was extremely lonely and just sad honestly, but I knew that I was ready to fight! I knew the life I wanted, and I was willing to go after it!
Sometimes you have to be willing to leap for the unknown, and trust that God will carry you through! Fast forward to Fall 2019, my mindset and energy surrounding me were completely different because I put in the work. I meditated and did my devotion EVERY single day! I begin listening to uplifting podcasts, reading books, working out, eating healthy, and building relationships with people that made my spirit feel good.
Once I begin making these changes, God begin shifting everything around me. Was everything magically perfect now? NO! Not at all, what was different was ME. I took the time to reset and realign what it was that I needed. Now, all of those seeds I planted from that time are reaping the harvest. My marriage is rebuilding daily, and I am genuinely happy. My child is thriving. My businesses are launching and monetizing. My faith is unwavering, and I have the privilege of mentoring youth and coaching Millennial moms inspiring them to be their best selves.
I share my testimony to say this, you are the ONLY one that can manifest the life you want. You can have all of the money in the world, and still, be completely unhappy. What leap of faith do you need to take today to truly be on track to the life you want?
You got this! Be encouraged and take that leap of faith.
