Happy Birthday To ME!!
GUESS WHO TURNED 33 TODAY??? ME!!!!!
Birthdays are so special to me… It’s truly a time to reflect over the progress you’ve made in your life, and most importantly celebrate your life.
Every year of life we receive is truly a blessing, and I never take one ounce of it for granted. This year I turn 33, and let me tell you, I have never been more sure of myself than I am right now. What a blessing!
I was so excited to turn 33 this year, for many reasons, but the biggest reason is because, I’ve dubbed it as, my miraculous year. You see in the Bible, Jesus didn’t start his ministry until He was 33 years of age. He didn’t perform His greatest miracles until He was 33. So for me, it’s the start of some miraculous things I know God has in store for my life! I believe with everything in my heart, that this year will be one of the BEST years of my life. Mentally, spiritually, professionally, and relational wise. And I believe my “ministry” that is Posh and Popular will truly touch the lives of many. I believe my love for fashion will open doors I could cease to understand, this year. It just feels GOOD! I have never been this sure of who I am, then what I am right now!
This year I have celebrated all month long, and the highlight of my celebration was traveling to LA for a week! That trip was significant, because it was exactly 10 years ago that I took the biggest step of my life and moved to LA to pursue my dreams! It was 10 years ago, while living in LA, God was preparing me for blogging, and finding my purpose. It was through living in LA, that I realized what I should ultimately be doing with my life. So of course I had to go back to the place where finding my “voice”started!
It was so nostalgic being there, but it felt just as good being there as the day I moved 10 years ago, only this time I had a tribe of friends that have become family to make my trip even more special! From amazing dinners at some of the best restaurants in the city, to shopping on Wilshire Blvd., connecting with friends I hadn’t seen in 8 years, to getting pampered on Robertson Blvd, and getting my make-up done in Beverly Hills, my trip was nothing short of amazing!
But the most amazing part was having the opportunity to shoot with my brother and dear friend, the famous photographer, Mr. Elton Anderson! When I tell you Elton made my LA trip the best experience, I mean it!!! He like I, is just a kid from Detroit that had a dream to pursue his passion, and it has taken him all over the world! His success, is something to admire and to push for. Living a life full of purpose with no regrets, operating in your passion. That is something worth fighting for! This trip sparked a whole new fire in me, so get the fire hose ready, because I’m about to be smokin hot this year!
Every year I reflect on what I’ve learned and how I can grow from my past experiences, and this year, I am choosing to live intentionally. To create memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. To live with no regrets and just GO FOR IT! On this my 33rd birthday, I choose ME! I choose to pursue my happiness by any means necessary! To go for the promises God has for me! To inspire people everywhere I go, and to leave a little love every place I step foot in.
I am the happiest I have been in a long time, and I know it’s going to get better each day of this new year of my life! I’m choosing to surround myself with what is positive! I wish blessing to everyone around me and all of my Posh Dolls! The best is yet to come and I am so excited!!!
Thank you for celebrating with me, and making this the best birthday yet!!!
