Lesson #22: My Dreams Matter


Happy New Year to you all! I know, I know 2019 is more than halfway over.  But, I hope 2019 is the year you can achieve your goals and that you are abundantly blessed.  I hope that the last half of this year is better than the first part. I went over a year without I publishing any articles on my blog.  In my last post of 2018, Lesson 16: I MATTER, I wrote about my journey as a new mom. I was only one month postpartum when I wrote the article and I had already neglected myself. I for sure have neglected my blog. 


This past year and a half has been a journey with many ups and downs. Thankfully, I have been able to put myself on my priority list in a few ways. I’m a work in progress though. I’m grateful that I’m now doing things for myself more and putting my health—mental, physical and emotional health at the forefront of my mind. I’ve also accomplished other goals in my life while juggling my many roles and responsibilities. In 2019 I have published three other blog posts that I hope you check out if you haven’t already: Lesson #20: Get Surrounded by Positivity, Lesson #21: Abandon the Vision, and my famous Black Bean Brownies with Coconut Peanut Butter Sauce recipe.  This is a huge accomplishment for me, because I have fallen off the map several times with my blog.


One thing I want to teach my child and future children is to go after their dreams. To live their lives to the fullest and believe that they can achieve anything. How can I teach them what I don’t know? I have lots of dreams I want to make a reality. I would do myself a disservice if I didn’t go after what I want in life. One of my dreams is to be a published writer, hence why I started this blog in 2014.  I owe it to myself, and my child(ren) to fulfill this dream. I want to help as many people as possible by spreading messages of self-love and positivity.  


Whatever dreams you have been wanting to make a reality, take the steps now. You can do it! You can have the life you’ve always wanted!


You have a uniquely beautiful gift that the world needs! Share it with the world! You have the power to make a difference in this world!
