Food Fashion and Flow: A New Day

A New Day

Sometimes Life is a matter of perspective. When you wake up above the ground instead of under it, you are having a good day.. Some people did not wake up, so each time you get to open your eyes, there is a chance to start brand new. A chance to get it right. I am in a new season of my life, but sometimes to get to the new, the old things that held you back have to be cut. Sometimes those old things, old thoughts, familiar people are comfortable. Sometimes people around you can be toxic or bad for you. Sometimes even though something is bad for you it feels comfortable. And then there comes a time when...

IT HAS TO GO.

Growth is painful, but if you are not growing. You are dying. I would rather stretch in areas that make me uncomfortable, rather than not reach my full potential. It's a new day and it's mine. It is a new day for you too:-)

I find newness and growth exciting.  These bright colors make me feel like a ray of light and in my free time I have been busy pouring into the lives of other people through ministry. I like the direction I am going.

I love a great statement necklace and they always add a little something special no matter what you are wearing. The great thing about your life and how you live it is that it will make a bold statement too and you don't have to say anything. How you live and treat people speaks pretty loud. 

Even the words you speak about a person when you think they don't hear you. If they are negative, it says more about you than you than it does about them. Negative words are death and I would rather not speak them. I prefer to say good things behind someone's back or nothing at all.

I am having a birthday in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to celebrating. I am always grateful each time I get to celebrate a birthday and completely humbled that each year so many people want to celebrate with me

This week I am linking up with these lovely ladies: Lisa La Monde  Mix Match Fashion and Beauty101byLisa

I am loving the combination of Citron and neutral colors. Perfect combination of bold and subtle

Have an amazing day!

Love the combination of citron with the neutrals. Lovely bow on your clutch.

I'm inspired by your words. Truly, the way we treat people speaks loudly about us than them.

Looking good.

Would love to hear more about the ministry. I too don't like negativity and when someone is negative to me about others I tell them not to do that or I say something good instead. I just don't have time for that kind of behavior.

Besides the scripture tells us "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8 Sometimes it is a greater challenge to follow these exhortations but it is always worth it. I'd far rather thing on these things than the alternatives.

Have a wonderful week ahead! xx

Last month my high school best friend's husband passed away unexpectedly in his sleep at the age of 35. Ever since then I have tried to, at least once per day, remember how lucky I am to be living in THIS DAY. So I really believe in being positive. I love the nude and yellow look!
