I read somewhere that January is the month of living in the clouds because it’s a new year, and you make all these promises to yourself. So you pretty happy because you have not given up on yourself just yet.
I have been beaming with excitement ever since I got home from my trip. I have been more focused on my life and what I want to accomplish with it. I know the journey will not be easy, and I do not want to burn out again.Time for an action plan as I seem to want to do so many things and then never get started and I fear that may happen.
Last night I worked till 10 pm after my day job ended I rushed home to take a quick shower and then off to a meeting at my church, I am the new leader of the kids ministry I have been doing it for years now so just had to touch base on plans for the year. Then off to Sister Incorporated where I volunteer with the kids. It was so good to be back feeling like God welcomed me home. Sad to see one little boy and his mom has left the home. I grew so fond of him, but all I can do now is pray that they safely in God’s hands.
Then after that I rushed off to another meeting. This one was to discuss future plans for the Out Of Africa Dance Academy as we rolling into pre show mode which is going to be hectic again. So I was done by the time I got home could hardly utter two words.
My mom aka my guardian angel posted this picture on my Facebook wall that was very profound to me. The Quote; “God would not have put a dream in your heart if He hadn’t already given you everything you need to fulfil it”
CherryHearts was born in my heart 3 years ago with the help of the great friend. We were both going through hell at the time. We played around with the idea of me owning my own business one day and thought of names and CherryHearts was born.
I recently met up with him for lunch, and we caught up, he saw me at my lowest and I saw him in his weakest form too. He told me he recently started following my blog and very happy with what I have done and the name. He could not believe how much I have changed, from a scared girl stuck in doomed job to this confident women.(his words not mine)
I explained my vision to him, I call it a lifestyle blog because I love many things. My true aim is that Courteney and I through our various god gifted talents can start a movement of hope and inspiration for all who meet us in person, read one article, sees one picture or video. We are 2 ordinary girls meeting other ordinary girls and guys along the way and we all doing extraordinary things. We all have stories to share and through that we will help, encourage, and build one another up.
Our vision; Is to inspire one and all by giving everyone hope that today can start your better tomorrow.
I don’t do this to be famous one day I do this because 3 years ago God used two broken people to plant a seed in our lives that change was coming, hope will be seen, and you can create anything you put your mind to and conquer all your fears.
I see things so much clearer now, I have confidence in myself I knew was there, but has finally come to the surface.
I was never sure about anything until I started doing this, writing, enjoying life, sharing my story with everyone. One day I would love to own my own CherryHearts foundation. A safe haven for teen girls from all backgrounds, dealing with anything and everything related to being women and equipping them with skills to be confident, educated young women and giving them hope that you can rise above your circumstances.
I don’t know where I will be in the future, if things will change and I am sure I will change too, but I do know for a fact God has put a dream in my heart and my plan is to fulfill it.
I just had the burst of inspiration to reflect and write this so extra post this week. It is reminder to me what CherryHearts is and hope it is interesting for you to hear the back story behind my journey.
Peace love & Happiness
