Hi people!Happy new week.
I was looking through my old things last week, and I found a few of the diaries I have kept in the past. If you know me, you know that I love to write a lot. I write about the simplest things and my diaries are filled with little notes, to God, to myself, to my family and to my friends. I even found one where I wrote to my future baby (the one I already have now). It was a weird conerstaion I tell you.
As I went throuh the diaries, I found one from 2013 and started going through it. I usually do this from time to time, and am always surpised to see how my life and way of thinking has changed over the years. Anyway, in this 2013 diary, I found only a few entries, but the major one was in January. It was a similar period to what we are going through now, but the contents were completely different. It was a letter to God, dated January 2013. In this letter, I delved into some of the things I was going through in my life. I had just discovered I was pregnant, but things were not looking so good.
I wrote:“Hi, its Monday and am still in the house. It’s almost 11 a.m. and I’ve not even taken a shower…..I don’t have a job….Am scared that I will turn into a resentful, dependent housewife who brings nothing to the table. Am scared that my life is going down the drain. I am currently not seeing any solution that I can put in motion. I feel helpless.”
That was the first part of the diary entry. After spewing all my problems on paper, I continued to the next part:
“I want to feel good. I want to feel motivated and driven. I want to feel excited. I want something to do. I want a job. Something am good at. I want something that will earn me good money. I want my bills paid on time. I want to come home happy, satisfied and that I did a great job.”
After this part, I went ahead to finish off the entry by saying:
“There are so many things am thankful for. Am alive and well and pregnant. Am so grateful.”
As I read through this journal entry a few days ago, tears started welling up in my eyes. I went through all those things I said I wanted so badly and discovered that God had given me everythng I asked for and more.
Now in January 2016, almost 3 years after writing this prayer, things are so much more different. Actually, I got a job that March, after writing my prayer in January. Though I left that job after I had my baby boy, I found even something better to do.I actually go home feeling happy and satisfied, just like I prayed for.
Of course, there are so many more things I want, but this journal entry written way back in 2013 is an indication that my life has changed, my prayers have been answered and that even my bigger dreams can be accomplished.
I am challenging you today, and myself too.
Write out a letter to God today and outline all the issues you are going through. Go ahead and write out the things that you want, how you want your life to shape up. Then, say a prayer of gratitude, because your prayers are already answered.
Am living testimony.
Now I go off to write a new journal entry and ask for the things I want…(that list might include a few things you want too, such as a house and more peace of mind and heart), then I will stand and watch as God answers my prayers.
Have a lovely week good people!
Lets hope we can all stay organized.
Am crazy tired today. Am just a few minutes away from jumping into bed with all clothes on. But then I thought to myself, ‘What kind of Wednesday would it be if I did not give you the pleasure of knowing what av been pinning this week?” The answer I gave myself was, ‘Not such a good one’. And here I am, pinning around and sharing it with you all. Enjoy my randomness
Enjoy the rest of the week!!!
Now only if I could do half of these poses, I would be one happy girl.

Hey lovely readers? Its that time again to write to the future Mr. Millie. I never knew that inspiration could take so long, but its here so lets hope he is reading and that it touches some part of his heart.
Hi honey, dear, darling, sweetheart and all the other sweet words I might choose to call you! I am Ok, just taking each day as it comes. Life is fine, not too much drama. I actually like my life right now and I hope it is headed in the right direction. The weather is kind of complicated. Somedays, the sun decides to come out and some others, its just plain cold. Today is kinda cold, actually my feet are freezing but I will be ok.
How are you?Is everything ok? I guess it is coz if it weren’t, you would have reported it. And if it isn’t, then I will pray and by tomorrow, everything will be better. Is it cold? Or maybe warm or hot where you are?I wish you could just tell me so I know what your life is like. Oh dear, I must admit that I miss you. Do you understand? You know I said the same thing in the last letter but I dont think you understand. I miss you so much. In a way that I cannot explain. But am ready to wait for you.
Sweerie, when the time comes for us to meet, I hope you will be ready. Ready to receive the best kind of love from me. The kind that sticks in the heart and remains there forever. I hope you will be ready to share your life with me. That is the reason why all human beings crave connection. We want to share our lives with someone else. That is what I want with you. To share our lives together. To know that someone notices and values my existence. That is is not all in vain. I am getting ready for all this and more and hope you are too.
I love you my baby and wish to see you soon.
Many hugs and kissess!
Readers, I hope he listens to me and comes along very soon. Hold your breath and I’ll hold mine and when we let go, he will be here.
I know am a bit late for this link-up but better late than never. I wouldn’t miss this for anything. So Vintage Apple, here I come with my fav pins this week.
Someone please get me this purse
I love these so much that I had a dream about them
I love these dresses too much
Some Inspiration is always abundant in my pins.
And lastly, some food that I am totally thinking about right now
Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.
Sometimes, we find ourselves lost, in a world where we do not know what to do or which way to go but eventually, we come across something that acts as our inspiration. Soon, we begin to feel some kind of passion boiling inside of us and we are able to move on to bigger and better.
My inspiratioon comes from:
1: Color: Bright and beautiful, splashed everywhere. A world filled with color is a world full of inspiration. Colors brighten my world. I have recently found that my favorite color in my current phase of life is yellow, i love itbut a mixture of bright colors make me smile.
2: Music: Just put on a beautiful piece of music and my heart wants to sing. Listening to some kinds of music gives me a headache but i get easily soothed by soft rock music. Actually my favorite rock band is 3 Doors down.
3: Love: If you are like me (the mushy mushy type), then you know that love can move mountains. I love my family, i love my friends, i loooove my B/f. Without Love, the world would be nowhere. I also love some of my dresses and some of my shoes too. When i love something, i want to put it very close to my heart, such that noone and nothing can take it away.
4. People: What if there was only one person in this world and everything else was animals and plants. Life would be unbearable, but knowing that there are billions of others just like me, going thru the same kind of things is an inspiration. It makes me wonna strive harder to live a fuller life. It also inspires me to try and make the life of other people better in any way i can.
There you have it, my inspiration. What inspires you? Share….
