I wanted to take the time to say thank you to my 100 Subscribers! I am thankful for your support and hope that my blog encourages you to think of ways to make desired changes in your life while on your personal journey. Learn2simplifylife.com is 4 years old this month!
I began this journey back in 2009, when I was spiritually encouraged to begin my natural hair journey and change my eating habits. In 2011, I was given the desire to live the simple life and to start this blog to document it. I did not understand it at the time, but the desire grew stronger.
The seed was also planted to shed light on battling gossip. If I had to choose, I would not have chosen this particular sin to battle, because everyone does it to some degree and it is apart of human nature. When I did my first blog on gossip (The Gift of Gab Challenge), it was like being a magnet. People were bringing me so much negative talk that it irritated me. I also noticed that my silence irritated others and made them nervous because they never knew what I was thinking. There are still so many other things I am supposed to do in regards to tackling gossip and bringing it to the forefront. I accepted the challenge and will be speaking more on this at a later date!
Changes in the economy, layoffs, and other life challenges drew me closer to the simple life that was planned for me. I am happier now than I ever was in Corporate America and I can only imagine what lies ahead for me. It is not because of money, but God has placed me in a position for growth physically, mentally, and spiritually.
He has also positioned me to be a positive influence in the life of others, even if only for a moment. I take this opportunity very seriously. I am meeting more people now than I ever have in other positions. I am doing one of the things I love to do, which is serving others. I also have the pleasure of being apart of major changes in the lives of others. I cross paths with people who are attempting to better their lives within a matter of hours and God has given me the honor of delivering the life changing news and celebrating with them.
Looking back, I would have never imagined that I would be where I am today, but I am so grateful because even though I don’t know all of God’s plans for me, I do know that they are great and beyond what I could ever imagine for myself!
I have not posted much over the last two years, but you still supported my blog. Thank you Subscribers! There will be more Body Talk and Free Spirit updates as well as more Supplemental Income posts to come! Have a great week! Be blessed!
