* * * A Carpe Diem moment * * *


One of my favorite friends shared this Beautiful Poem with me (when it was my Birthday). I don't know who wrote it BUT it definately made me cry! Be good & stay positive. Much love - X- Lin
 

"One night I dreamed a dream
I was walking along the beach with my Lord
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to me and one to my Lord. "

" When the last scene of my life shot before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand
There was only one set of footprints,
I realized that this was at the lowest
and saddest times of my life.
This always bothered me
and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma. "

" Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You,
You would walk and talk with me all the way
But I'm aware that during the most troublesome times of my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I just don't understand why, when I need You most'
You leave me."

"He whispered: "My precious child, I love you
and will never leave you, never, ever,
during trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

* * * A Simple Birthday * * *


Today's my Birthday and I feel very blessed that I have reached this Milestone.
It's funny when we don't (always) realize how time flies
by really fast. Once we were 20 and now we've reached the 30th's. Oh my Goshhh!
But hey it's just a number right ;)

  I am happy with the way I spend my Birthday and felt very blessed with
the people who were with me that day, called me and
send me
Sweet Birthday Wishes...




But most of all I THANK the LORD for giving me the best Birthday Wish ever!  
Discovering my True Inner Self
This year has been so inspiring & wonderful for me and I can finally say on this day 
from the bottom of my Heart, that I am truly Happy and Satisfied 
about ME being just ME 100% . I'll never forget this MOMENT and what GOD has done for me. I am exited & ready for the Wonderful Future HE has planned for me...



  

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog

Be good & stay positive

* * * A Girl on a Mission * * *

" We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort". Jesse Owens

No one said it was gonna be easy to follow and  pursue your dreams.  But I can tell you that it's worth it. Every step and battle you usually face is a learning moment. To finally discover what my true dream (life purpose) was, took me like almost 5 years through lots of up and down moments, frustration, procrastination and negative thoughts. Man oh Man. I came to lot's of moments where I almost gave up. I even had one of those moments before I attended the workshop I talked about in my previous blog - post. But deep inside I still felt that fire burning and that I was breaking through a wall. I just had to hold on tight!  I am so happy I followed my intuition and thanks to the power and strength of God who kept me going and of course the people who believe(d) in me. I also deserve some credits of course ;) . At the end of the road I am the one who has to make the decision. No one can do it for me.

The Human Life Cycle

Next month I'll turn 30.... Worried? Nop, because it's just a number. What's more important to me is the way I see myself on the inside and how I feel. The reality part on this one though is that you keep on "aging" in numbers. Once we were a Fertilised egg -> Foetus -> then came a Baby out of it -> who grew up to be(come) a Child -> Teen -> Adult -> then came the Old aging -> and finally our Death.... Or as we call it the Human Life Cycle. In every phase of our life we will have to go through some life lesson(s) experience(s). I don't experience the things I went through as a waste. ( I used to though ) Some day it can come in handy. Now if I could've done somethings different or prevent them in the past? Yessss!!! So can you imagine what we as (young) adults had to go through at school, our job(s), people putting labels on us or criticising us and we accepting it as well? We got a whole lot of baggage to deal with now and seperate the good stuff from the bad. I am not saying that everything could've been perfect, because I do believe that we can definately learn from some mistakes we've made in the past. It can help us change to be(come) a better version of ourselfs. That's why I would like to help people break through the limiting beliefs they grew up with and inspire others that for everything there is a way.

My mission - Life purpose

I love to work with children (preference primary school). Like I said before they are pure, curious about life and not (yet) stuck in the world system. They are our hope & future and I definately believe that they can do an even better job then we are doing now. That's why I'm on a mission and that's - to Learn, Create & Teach things in Life from a "different" & "fresh" perspective. So that our next generation(s) can follow up in our footsteps and do an even better job to change the world in a Positive & Inspiring way.

My purpose is to help children develope their (natural) talent(s) and guide them through it and also discover more hidden talents. Eventually my goal is to help them discover and create  their future dream job through creative methods.

Personal Branding Coach for kids - I offer a (online) service where I tutor children and help them through an easy step by step program but most importantly in a Educational and FUN way.

I am also starting a charity for kids about self-love & self-identity. The reason why I want to start this charity is because I believe that every child has a dream planted in their heart. Not all of them are lucky or have the good benefits to grow up in a community or country where they can achieve their dream goals. I want to create a opportunity for them and that there is someone who believes in them and that everything is possible in life. It's not always gonna be easy but that they know and acknowledge that if they want to create their dream job, it starts with their self-believe.


How to contact me

If you like to know more about this charity project & the tutoring service you can contact me through the following email: puredivinitylifestyle@gmail.com. Looking forward hearing from you guys. 

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog

Be good & stay positive

Much love

* * * Work It Out ~ Workshop * * *

After writing the previous blog-posts on How to just be YOU, I've come to realize that it is important to pursue your goals and dreams ( no matter what or how hard the situation may seem ). If you don't do anything and only dream about it, you'll never actually have the opportunity to really know how it feels like and to get out of your comfy zone. 


Did I achieve all of my goals this year ...

Have you ever wondered what could've happend if you would've tried something out? Even the smallest thing(s)? Well I did! And I can tell you it's an amazing feeling! It's like you become a much stronger person and more fearless. The funny thing is that the fear that was holding me back, is just an unpleasant emotion. I was afraid of what people might think of me or that my dreams and goals are out of my reach. Even close relatives didn't always understood why I was doing certain things. To give an example - I couldn't explain why I didn't felt the need to be on social media and why I kept feeling the urge to start my (online) business. Most of them were supportive, don't get me wrong but they didn't understood why I didn't want to combinate it with social media. I've realized that what you spend your time frequently on a daily basis can determine where you are or stand the next day, month, year. I decided at the beginning of this year that I didn't want to procrastinate anymore. Remember this blog post >>> Let the transformation begin .... I set some goals for 2013. I didn't accomplish all of them yet but I can truly say and declare that I chose to spend my time more wisely, started to pay more attention what I was eating ( no more meat since this summer ) and most importantly I made the commitment to build a personal and strong relationship with GOD. If I have to repeat this about him everytime I would --- because without his Love  & Mercy I wouldn't be the person I am now. This year has been so wonderful & inspiring for me. I've learned to never give up on my dreams and goals, the people who are in my life and to always have faith and believe in every battle I face. And that everything will eventually will be allright just as GOD promised it would be! I am also not ashamed ( anymore) to talk about him! He is my life and my source.


My Business plan(s) ...

This year I really sat down and made notes on what kind of business I want(ed) to start. Somewhere in March I started making mindmaps on why I want to start a business and what kind of  products & services I want to offer.

 

I started with my marketing plan but got stuck during the process. I was just procrastinating and was a little bit afraid to start bringing things into practice. It took a while but I eventually did it. Thank GOD! In this blog post >>>How to just be YOU - Part II I wrote on how I attented a four day workshop (spread over 1 month). It was a free course and I've learned a few awesome things like;

  • the Iceberg Theory
  • what is my dream (life purpose)
  • what was/is holding me back (limiting beliefs from the past and now)
  • how to identify my niche market
  • making a visualboard (this is my specialty)
  • taking a look at my value proposition, marketing - and business plan
  • discovering my strengths and weakness points
  • the elevator pitch
  • one on one conversation with experts about the basics when you want to start a business
  • giving a presentation about what I've learned from this workshop and of course to give a presentation about the business I want to start.

The next step ...

After attending this awesome free workshop and being inspired by the other people who were also chosen, I was so exited and full of energy to start on my business project! At the beginning of this workshop I also thought that I wanted to be a Personal Branding Coach for Entrepreneurs. BUT my true dream is to work with Children (preference primary school). As a young adult we already got our "baggage of life". Now I am not saying we can't change it. There is always a way. The difference with children is that they are pure and curious about life and are not (yet) stuck in the world system. We can help them to develope their (natural) talent(s) and guide them through it and also discover more hidden talents. Eventually my goal is to help them discover and create their future dream job through creative methods. I am not saying that I only want to work with children. I would also love to help out my fellow generation peepz :) . So stay tuned for more details in future blog post(s).... Like I always say when I am exited to start on a (new) project "Let's do this"...

* * * Bucket List * * *

I''ve made a deep thought about it but I decided to share my bucket list with you guys..... Why??? Because now I am revealing more and more of me ( you wouldn't say but I'm kind of a private person ;) on my blog. So I thought why not share the things I already accomplished untill now and the things I want to be(come) & do.

This last year specially has been amazing! I've really been discovering my true inner self and it's an awesome experience. And you can do the things in life that feels 100% good to YOU without being a people pleaser. Believe me I was so so good at it. Now it's hasta la vista baby! I've done some cool stuff and challenge(d) myself to say YES  more often to things I wouldn't do or try out, because of procrastination or fear. But after experiencing the kick and adrenaline,  I've realized how amazing it feels and what great inner treasure(s) your hiding from yourself. You'll keep surprising yourself everytime.

So here it is!!! My Bucket List. I would say enjoy and get inspired to create your own.

* * * How to just be ~ YOU * * * # 4

Finally we've come to the last part of the series about how to just be YOU. I hope it helped and inspired you to take that (first) step of F.A.I.T.H. Remember what I said. " If you choose to do nothing you're still making a choice".


Go find YOU and stop being someone else
 
So how can we just be ourselves without losing our personality..... First of all accept yourself the way you are.  Even with your flaws. Believe me nobody is perfect. Everybody has a weak spot. And to be honest it is good to have those spots. Otherwise you would be perfectly made and have no challenges to work on. And if there are no challenges we can't grow as a person, right? Here are a few start-up tips on how to be(come) your best version.

Personal brand - Who are you truly and what do you want to do or accomplish in this life GOD has given to you?  I am not saying to become a copy of someone else but just go find and discover your unique and special talents that has been given to you. The things you do natural and it's one of a kind in your own way.... The things that people recognize in your real personality.

Be(come) a Do It Now person. Only visualizing or fantasizing about your dreams isn't gonna complete the tasks or get you where you want to go. Taking action ( how scary it sometimes may seem ) will help you bring you to the next level. And once you've done it before, the next time it won't be so scary anymore. The more you do it, the more confident and better you'll get at it. That's also a sign that you are growing as a person and breaking out of that comfortzone or those limiting beliefs you put on yourself in the past or what others did. A great and awesome person who inspired me with these topics and still does is Brendon Burchard. Watch his inspiring video about * Myth of Limiting beliefs * and please do share your awesome thoughts and feeback on it :)



" I truly believe & experience that thanks to the mercy and love of GOD, he can help you work on your weak spot(s) one at a time and overcome them through the power and strength of Jesus Christ. "Lindsay R

* * * How to just be ~ YOU * * * # 3

So this part is about taking a look under the surface. What are you hiding from others? Or even things from yourself. Have you read the first two parts yet? Click here >>> 12 to check them out again. And it would be awesome if you share your thoughts about the topics. Enjoy this one as well and expect true honestly from me :)

Who are you truly?

Let's be real honest for a sec here. Are you happy and satisfied with your current living situation and happiness? Are you really being YOU? Or just putting on masks where no one can "see" when your hurting or something offended you and you regret that moment you could have defended yourself. And then when the moment is over that you wished you had done it differently. The "hard" part is how will you act the next time you see or talk to that person again? All I can say is I know exactly how your feeling right now!

You feel frustrated and angry and you know the funny part? Well actually we can't call it that ;) . But here we are fussing and over thinking the situation again and again, meanwhile the person who has putten this on you is now at home enjoying himself. Well I be darn. What's wrong with this picture? So let's "face" it. Do you wanna be totally and 100% yourself? Start living it and throw away those ugly masks and speak up what you wanna say in a respective & honest way of course.

I always want to treate people just the way I want to be treated.  In a loving & caring, respective and honest way. But I added  to the list that I am not gonna put aside my own opinion. We're all given a "voice" use it in a positive & inspiring way.


Get of that " I blame everybody and the world about the way I feel"


I can imagine that it's not always easy to be yourself or where to start? I've learned that you can't please everybody. Believe me I was so good at it. And before you know it someone else is controlling your life AND emotions. That's like giving away your power. Before we know it we are blaming another person about it and exposing all those negative emotions on the people close to you. But it definately makes you feel better right? Well not for long though and actually you are giving away your power, your happiness, your values...  So now is the time to take it back. How? Take a look today at your current situation and start taking action. It's your life and you deserve to at least treat yourself like precious value.

- Reflection Moments - 

When your getting real about your current situation. It's handy to keep in mind that your gonna go through some phases. In these moments it's a good thing to reflect on these moments. Why? Because in these moments you take a clear look behind the masks and get honest and real what needs to go or on what you need to work on. Mostly I'll write it off my "chest", analyze an old habit and if it isn't in line with the next step in my life purpose, I'll despose it out. These moments can give you clarity on what to put your focus on and what needs to go. Write it off, analyze it..... Is it usefull? Is it a match with your current goals? Is it in line what you believe in or value in life? Is it positive and respective? A wholeeeee lot to think about huh? I would say get started as soon as you can and keep on moving forward step by step. If you choose to do nothing you're also making a choice.


- Re-discover -  

Re- discover what your true character is. How do you see yourself now? How do you want to be seen by others ( without losing yourself in the progress )? How do the people who are often around you see you now? Analyze yourself with these questions and get inside your head and heart. A good and inspiring video to watch after reading this blog-post is another short inspiring video from Pastor Paula White . Check it out here >>>

Finally find out what's taking energy out of you - with which activity/subject is this always? If it's sucking the life out of you then you know it's not a good sign. When you recognize it you can do something about it. How? It's easy and simple.... Just take a look at the things in your life that brings joy, give more energy and peace. If you haven't got the time to do this yet, you can figure it out now.


" Just remember this. God made you unique and special just the way you are meant to be. Yeah of course you can't ignore the "baggage" in your life & personality. But it's up to you what you want to carry in it and start  seeing and believing what God's already been seeing in you ~ A Bright Star~ Ready to touch the world in a special way."  Lindsay R

* * * How to just be ~ YOU * * * # 2

I am so exited to share part 2 about ~ How to just be YOU ~ If you haven't read the first part. Check it out here >>> Part I . Hope it helped and gave you (more) clarity on the current things in your life? So this second part is awesome and difficult at the same time for me because it's about getting out of your comfortzone. Of course not something we often like to do. Especially if we're comfy where we at. Don't know about you guys but for me it's sometimes an on going process. But you know what? I deserve a better and brighter future. So I am not going to hold myself back and start creating opportunities when they are in reach. Life is too precious

 No Turning Back Now

In mid August I saw an ad in the newspaper. It was about signing up for a free workshop and it was for people who wanted to know and experience, if the entrepreneurship world is something for them. Now let me tell you this. I never read the (local) paper! Never ever. I wanted to use this paper to throw away the remainings of my watermelon :) I opened the page randomly and my eyes immediately fell on it. I saw and still see this as a sign of GOD. Last few months you've probably noticed me "talking" about me writing a business plan.... Well I definately believe that GOD was preparing me for this  " divine moment". So you kinda guess what I did next? Yes I signed up for it. I was exited and couldn't believe at the same time that I was putting myself out there and finally taking the courage and step to really share my business plans. After that moment I was like ohhh goshh what did I do. How am I gonna do this or make it happen?  And then fear came up. I was like no! You are not going to ruin my moment and especially a GOD given one. So I regrouped myself and handled my biz. (Update about the workshop is coming soon. So stay tuned)

Creating opportunities 
 
Everyday in life we have a choice what we want to do with our time and how we spend it. We are all responsible for it and can't blame another. I see this the same way with opportunities. But don't be hard on yourself when you miss one. There will be always another chance. If it will be the same? I can't promise. But I can definately say that with GOD you always get another chance.The B.I.G question is are you willing to take that step in F.A.I.T.H and let him lead you? I can guarantee you that you won't have any regrets. Why? Because everything I experience with GOD is positive and feels good & the right way. It also brings me closer to the dream(s) he put in my heart. Now it's time to step up and keep on moving forward.

I've realized that all the past years I was the one who was holding myself back with self pittiness and fear. But this year I've stepped out of that blame game and taking the step and courage, without being ashamed for regonizing my love for GOD and the things I love and stand for! It's time to take full possession. I've camped out long enough now on self pity land and I am not settling for less anymore. Here's a short video from Pastor Paula White , where I got so inspired by the word of GOD. Click here >>>  Enjoy watching and please do share your thoughts about it.

Never give up

In life I've learned that it always starts with YOU. Every direction your going, decision you make or opportunity you create. Or the time and energy you spend on people. And I've also learned that all the things that came across my path, can learn or teach you where you stand in life at that moment. So don't be so hard on yourself.

* * * How to just be ~ YOU * * * # 1

So in this blog-post I wanna talk with you guys about just being you. Sounds easy as a breeze, but my question now is - are you totally being and living the real you? Or just faking it when you are around people? Even with your love ones.....

I got inspired by a dear friend of mine who is going through a phase where she is choosing to be herself and doing the things in life she loves and likes. I am so proud of her stepping in her own world and exploring the things to just be herself. And then I thought why not go deeper on this topic. So I'm gonna share a IV PART series with you guys on how I got through these experiences and just accepting myself the way I am now. Of course with all the flaws and all because it's still a working progress. But as long as you stay true to yourself eventually all the pieces will fall into place.


My Personal Story

As the most of you already known, I've gone through an on going transformation in my life ( read the extended version here >>> Changing direction II ) During those periods I thought I was handling every part of my life very well. On the surface it seemed so yes, but inside.... Well all I could say is houston we had a problem. Notice me writing "had". Luckily I survived these phases in one piece. I got real as in the real delio! No more hidding behind masks or acting it up, just real as it get's. And I'll tell you it's been the best decision ever! Being honest and true to yourself will open up closed doors. And I mean the ones where you didn't even realized how messy they were in your head and heart. Call it a real wake up moment.


Finding out who you are and what you value the most in life

  • First thing first. "Accept every bit and part of you. Just accept the way you are". You were made this way for a reason. Don't be(come) a copy. Just stay original. I definately believe that everyone was made unique and special and that includes all the flaws and weak points. I love the quote "we are spiritual beings having a human experience". Something to think about right?

  • Learn to get to know yourself better. Get more knowledge through your brain, behavior and character. I would say just have some regular date nights with yourself and do something you like to do or never tried before. For example take a cooking lesson, drawing session, etc. Even if you aren't good at it, if you haven't tried it you will never know how good you may be(come) at it.

 
  • Don't be to hard on yourself. Sometimes we fail at things but I guess that's the way life kinda works. I've experienced that through faillures I become more stronger and wiser then I was before that struggle or moment. But above all I am becoming an expert. Now that's not a bad thing because when you come across a situation like this again you know what to do next time. Or better yet how to avoid it.

  • It's important to stay and talk positive about yourself during these moments. Ever noticed that we talk positive to a (dear) friend or person, when they are struggeling. But when it comes to you, you beat yourself down? These moments are a reflection of the things that are not working for you and need to be deposit out of your life. After you dealed with it, it's time to get back up again have faith in yourself or if you are a believer just like me in GOD and carry on to the next challenge/opportunity in your life. The "real" trouble comes when you decide to quit and stay down laying on the floor. Don't endanger your future in exchange for self pitty. You are more worth then that!

  • Don't let friends or family influence you too much. Everyone has there opinion and that's ok! But when it comes to things that you value the most or that's coming from the heart, don't give your power away. I always appreciate positive and constructive critic but I would advise you to try to solve your own problems first. And if you don't know how or where to start, share it with a (good) friend that is a good listener and has also the qualities I've mentioned above.

  • Finally be grateful & stay happy as much as you can during every moment. And I mean the good ones but also the bad ones. Embrace and enjoy life always. If you can't come up with something then be grateful that you get another day to live, to see your loved one(s) the next day again. Or just the sun shining warmly on your face... Sometimes it's also the small things in live we take for granted. If you are having a bad day or something doesn't seem to go the way you've planned. Take a deep breath hold it for a sec and let all your troubles float along when you release it again. Ohhh and don't forget to smile as big as you can.



I hope these tips will and can be very helpful for you guys. I would love to hear your thoughts and own experience(s) about the things I wrote above. Looking forward reading your comment(s).

Much love

* * * Moving Forward * * *

So yesss it's been a while. I feel like the months have passed by just like in a blink of an eye... To be really honest I had no idea how to fill up my blog with ( new ) content that can benefit for you guys. When I write a blog post, it's coming from a place deep inside when I've (just) gone through a proces - learning moment - or what you wanna call it - Here's what it looks like - I just shutdown, work it out from the inside, write it off my chest, evaluate the learning moments and how I can do it different in the future. And when I've passed that "test" or "phase", I write my evaluation and share it on my blog. When I am going through a phase like this, it's like peeling of some old layers of wallpaper.

Yeah I think I have a few more to go but I'm almost there. One step at a time  ♥ . During these moments you are really getting to know your true self. Most important part of this phase is that everything new you add is in the now moment. So that after a while you build up the things you value the most. But most importantly is your true personalty shining through everything in your life. The greatest gift you can give yourself. It's just priceless you know ;)


"We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and 
our adventure to discover our own special light."  
--- Mary Dunbar ---


"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."
--- Ralph Waldo Emerson ---


"Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are."
--- Malcolm S. Forbes  ---


Why has it been so Quiet around my blog?

I was facing some ( serious) challenges like, finding a job to stay financial independent, building my business ( brand ) and finding out & discovering the "WHY I wanna do this for a lifetime part", investing time & energy in the "right" people. Believe me I  ♥  to help people and support them. BUT when it comes to a point to meet your own needs and the persons who are giving that same feedback and also sharing their needs, it's time for some inventory. Otherwise it's gonna get messy and you can miss the overview and get a lot of headache too. During these reflection moments I came out stronger and wiser. You see everyday is a learning moment. How small or big something may seem there is always a lesson we can learn from it. And better yet you respect and value that the important things in life, like for example spending time w/ (special ) family and friends, your health, your dreams & goals, money can't buy. So you better think twice what you put first everyday?! ;)

I'll share the (most important) things I've learned during my " time offline "

When tough times come, as usualy they do, just try to keep the focus as much as possible on your dreams/goals and where your heading. So instead of panicking whether I'am gonna make the deadline or not, I try to remind myself often that this is not a marathon and that I just should enjoy the journey along every way, -  the Good - the Bad - the Ugly -

Stay true to yourself. One word -> Temptation. I 've had to deal with this one many times. It kept popping up in different areas of my life. But with the helping hand of GOD , I could manage to stay on the right path and keep my focus on him. As you guys know I've been on an interesting and inspiring journey and during these last few months I came to know GOD in a special and beautiful way. My whole life ( perspective ) changed and made my life complete and I can finally say with full proudness and recognition, that each day I am accepting and loving every bit and part of me more and more. But most importantly that HE accepts me just the way I am - with my flaws and all and that he loves me for who I am and not how the world wants to see me. Now that's priceless for me. I 'll share more details about my journey with GOD in a separate blog post. For now I'll share this TED video about the Power of Vulnerability. Wow I was so amazed that what I've been going through was and still is ( everyday ) worth it! I've broken that BIG, HIGH & really TOUGH wall, believe me it was that serious. But definately check out this video. I even got more learning moments from it. Click here >>> to watch it.

Instead of blaming another or the situation, I tried to ask myself the following question - What can I learn from this? - Really, do this and you'll be amazed what kind of results you can get! So instead of being angry about it or quarelling, you can figure out how to create or come up with a solution and better yet it can be a stress reliever. Imagine all that burden off your shoulders. How awesome would that be! Plus you saved yourself some extra gray hairs there. Or this only happens to me? ;)

Always try your best to keep moving forward your goals/dreams, no matter what. Yes no matter what - no excuses! Even if you don't feel like it. Before you know it we are in a new year. We don't have forever and everyday we loose, we can never take back again. So since I've been lacking some slack as well. I remind myself with the following quote -> "What you do today is the result of tomorrow". Does it work??? If you put it in a place @home where you pass by often. Or put it as a reminder in your phone, you can't ignore it eventually. Since I've been doing this for a while, I 've been beating Mr Procastination! It's not always easy ( let me get real for a sec ;) , but I am going to keep it up because it works! And I do get the results I want to see/get. In the past few months my life has changed in a dramatic positive way. I am so forever grateful for the love and grace of GOD. If it hadn't been for him, I would be lost and living a very unhappy life. I am not going back but moving forward on this new path with GOD.

So from now on it's blogging time again but with a different touch. I am still going to write/share about motivational & inspiring stuff but also about my believe and experiences with GOD. I am excited for the next blog so stay tuned it's gonna be awesome!
