It’s fall, and I’m in loveeeee.

I’m in love with myself, and my life. I’ve become more intentional when it comes to expressing gratitude over everything + everyone in my life, and it’s starting to become apart of my everyday routine.

I’ve become more appreciative of the little things in life like praying, making coffee, eating breakfast, dropping my daughter off at school, writing a new blog post, checking my emails, and watching the butterflies land on the pretty flowers that’s in front of my apartment complex.

My days are even becoming brighter, and the past is only a reflection in my rear view mirror. I have forgiving + embraced all of the things I couldn’t be, or change. There’s still days where I sit, and reflect on my growth and how far I’ve came, but dwelling on the bad shit? Nah

It just feels amazing to be in such a space that required so much self-love and forgiveness. I feel free, and whole, again. Words and things can’t express how fulfilled I feel, and it’s because of God’s faithfulness. I plan on staying in this healthy state of mind, and when negative self-talk approaches, I’ll remind myself of how worthy + deserving I am. 

Sprinkle of motivation:

I just want to encourage you all to continue to be intentional with the things you want to do, and remember to stay focused even when you’re faced with unfortunate difficulties. 

I know life can become overwhelming, especially when you’re in a really dark space, but I want you to know that bad days don’t last forever! 


We all have choices, and today I want you to make that conscious decision to choose peace and joy! ❤

  1. Great words of encouragement, Takeia!

    I love what you said, “I’ve become more appreciative of the little things in life like praying, making coffee…etc”

    I believe creating a healthy place starts with a heart of gratitude. Making a decision to be thankful for the tiniest things in life perpetuates your heart for the new and bigger things that are to come.

    Love you sister!

  3. You just seem so much happier and I love to see that you’re in a better place. It was just the other day when we would text each other about the job you disliked and your horrible boss and now you’re free from it all doing and living better.

    Your happiness is my happiness!
    Your glow is my glow
    I am my sisters keeper 💛
    Love you beautiful

  4. And I’ve definitely seen the difference in you sis and very much proud of you. I feeling like loving yourself is the best thing that anyone can do + when you feel like you deserve better than what you’re going through and you’re doing something about it – is amazing and I love how you said “bad days don’t last forever ” and it’s true bad days don’t last forever and we can’t keep thinking it does . Our problems are only temporary – I just need to keep that in mind. What an amazing encouragement that I needed to hear this morning . … love you sis ❤️
