 The day has finally arrived. My Husband and I have been waiting on this trip for almost a year. Initially, he wasn't feeling the idea of going to Paris but around January he began to see how exciting our journey could be.

This is our first time going abroad. There aren't enough words to describe how excited we are. I simply want to enjoy every moment and stay present during our trip.

Au revoir!

Feeling Renewed...

How’s it going world?

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged (what’s new).  I will find my rhythm again to write more on a daily basis. Lord knows there’s a lot going on to ponder and discuss. Perhaps my inspiration for writing this post was due to this past weekend. I believe I am now embarking upon an inner breakthrough. It’s funny how the smallest things can inspire you to seek more.

I would say it started with watching the recent Oprah’s Lifeclass featuring TD. Jakes. It doesn’t take many words from this man to move my soul but he was speaking about his new book Instinct. I woke up one morning last week a little early. I had a lot on my mind and couldn’t go back to sleep so I decided to get out of bed. I turned on my laptop and decided to watch a YouTube clip of Jakes’ recent sermon on his Instinct series. It spoke to me and I was inspired to go buy the book. I knew I didn’t want the e-read version; I wanted an actual hardcopy to mark and highlight.

Since last Friday, I have been obsessed with this book. I am at a point in my life where I want more clarity. Not just what is my purpose? Or why am I here?  I want a clearer vision of my current state of being. The relationships in my life, are they beneficial? Am I being a good friend?  Inadvertently, I discovered the key to clarity is also understanding and tuning into your instinct.

I am also being more mindful of what type of energy I am putting out into the universe. You are what you attract. For the most part, I would say it’s mostly good energy. However, I want to be more conscious of what I am projecting to others.

How about you? Do you believe in the laws of attraction? How did (or do) you find clarity in your life?

4th Quarter...

I know it’s been awhile and I hope things with you are going well. I would credit Thanksgiving for providing me the inspiration to write again.
Of course when you don’t update your blog regularly you are faced with the daunting task of remembering all that has happened. In October (the 20th to be exact), my husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary. We took a trip to Kauai and it was great. I would say this trip is another example of our many blessings. Of course, you get caught up in temporary seasons or circumstances and begin to question if you’re living life “right” or why is this happening to me?
I say for every minor setback a triumph is ready to happen. Lately, I have been questioning my purpose. Am I doing what I was put on this earth to do? What is my purpose? It may also just be the timing of the year. Typically, around the 4th quarter I start taking inventory of the current year and what have I done so far.  While I am excited and happy about most of the things I’ve accomplished this year, there’s always room for improvement. That’s just the perfectionist in me. But what’s wrong with wanting more? Honestly, I am looking to hit another milestone (professionally). I got my Masters in 2009 and started a new career in Sales last year (2012) and was promoted within my first six months but I still feel stagnate. Now what?
I have a new project I am working on with a friend and perhaps this new adventure will turn out to be gratifying. More on that once we’re in our groove. Funny how a new year can evoke so many thoughts and motivation to do better, but that’s life.   In my Wendy Williams’ voice…”How You Doin’?”

Tick Tock, there goes my damn clock...

As a 33 years old woman, I am beginning to wonder about this “biological clock” deal. Last year, when I found out I had Fibroids my Gynecologist informed me that my plans for being an “older mom” needed to be revised. When I was in my teens I swore I would start my family by 30. Well as 30 began to slowly creep up on me, I changed my plans to having a child in my late 30s or early 40s. Keep in mind; I did not have a husband (or a potential one) at that time. It was just another one of my lofty goals. My doctor advised me to look on the brighter side, at least now I was engaged to be married to my now husband. Her point being, there’s no extra stress in finding a man.

Well here we are almost a year later and once again, I am being reminded about starting now (if I want to have a child). I understand since the beginning of time, we have known that woman become less fertile after 35. However, our generation started a trend of putting off having a family for the sake of securing a career. I guess there is never a perfect time to start a family. For me, I am not ready 100 percent mentally. I still feel very selfish about my freedom and time. Hell, I am still adjusting to having a husband (it’s been almost six months). I know I want to enjoy time being newlyweds but now there’s this pressure of deciding when we should start having a kid.

I am very grateful for the fact that my husband is extremely supportive of my decision. Maybe because he has a son already, so there’s no immediate rush. But there is a sense of urgency on my part, I realize my Mother is getting older and I would love for her to enjoy her grandkid (especially since she’s retired and enjoying life). We also have plans to do as much traveling as possible and once you have a child things get reprioritize. Well I guess, I will find out the latest from my doctor during my appointment tomorrow morning.

Off to LV: Operation Wedding Prep Mode

So excited about today, we’re off to Vegas this evening. This isn’t a typical Vegas visit. We are actually working on our wedding plans. I can’t believe tomorrow will mark 4 months until we say “I do”. I am freaking getting married…

Tomorrow (June 20th) is action packed with vendor meetings most of the day. We’re looking at rental shops, meeting with; the DJ, photographer, ceremony officiant, florist and doing our menu tasting. It’s exciting and a little overwhelming at the same time. The next day (June 21st) will be the day of cake tasting. Somewhere in between the wedding stuff, I am going to need to hit a slot machine or table. 

Man, this journey is amazing. I can’t believe I found someone to love for a lifetime. I am so looking forward to this trip, mainly because of the purpose….

Engagment Party...

What a difference a week makes! Just this time last week I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off prepping for our Engagement Party. The big day was May 19th and it was an amazing event. I must say I admire all event planners and have absolutely NO desire to change my professional aspirations. My mother, brother and his wife flew into Dallas to join us in the festivities. My mother arrived last Wednesday evening and I had a heavy itinerary from the moment she came into town. I wanted to go dress shopping with her since I don’t have that luxury on a daily basis. I found my dress!!! The dress isn’t what I initially envisioned for myself. In fact, we went to a small bridal boutique and the owner happened to be a wedding dress designer. I didn’t pick one of her dresses but she has an eye to pick out exactly what looks great on me. Back to the engagement party, it was held at a restaurant and we had about 50 people there. I wanted to include our close friends and loved ones. Everyone had a great time and the pictures were amazing. This event was the official kick off for operation October Vegas Wedding. We’re so excited yet there’s still so much to do. Next assignment is the wedding invitation and bridesmaids dresses. Here’s a photo of our sweet treat table. I wanted a small candy bar. Our wedding color scheme is shades of purple with a splash of red ☺

Game Change

In honor of our Father who rose from the dead this day, I believe its time for me to also rise from my old self and move on to better things.

Our wedding plans are coming along.

However, professionally I need a change. I find myself wondering: am I serving my life's purpose? Am I ready to try something new? What is my identity?

Going into the think tank...
