As we approach the new year, let’s reflect on the journey we’ve been on, the highs and lows, and the unexpected twists and turns. Let’s be compassionate with ourselves and find connection through our shared experiences.

This year was a real test for me in the business world. Juggling two jobs was tough, and there were times when I felt like I was going to break. But through those challenges, I learned a lot. I learned to trust in the timing of the universe, to draw strength from a higher power, and to find resilience within myself.

I know a lot of you can relate to feeling like you have too much on your plate. It’s tough, but in our shared struggles, we find a bond that helps us get through it. As we approach the new year, let’s take some time to reflect on what we’ve learned and come out of this stronger than ever.

In the midst of business trials, I’ve seen some powerful lessons unfold.

These lessons have come in a bunch of ways, but they all have one thing in common: they’ve led me to a deeper understanding of myself, my purpose, and my relationship with God.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is that difficulty isn’t something to be avoided. In fact, it’s often through difficulty that we learn and grow the most. When we’re faced with challenges, we have a choice: we can either give up or we can press on. When we choose to press on, we learn resilience, determination, and perseverance. We also learn to trust in ourselves and our ability to overcome obstacles.

Another important thing I’ve learned is that God is always with me, even in the midst of my struggles. I’ve seen firsthand how God’s grace and mercy have sustained me through difficult times. I’ve also seen how God has used my struggles to draw me closer to him.

I believe that God has a plan for my life, and I trust that he is working all things together for my good. When I’m faced with uncertainty, I remind myself that what may seem like chaos is part of a grander plan. I trust the process, and I let that trust be my anchor.

I know that my story isn’t unique. Many people have faced similar challenges, and many have found hope and strength in the midst of their struggles. I believe that our stories can be a source of inspiration for others. When we share our stories, we can help others to see that they aren’t alone, and that there is hope even in the darkest of times.

If you’re struggling right now, I want to encourage you to keep going. Don’t give up on yourself or on your dreams. God is with you, and he will help you to overcome whatever challenges you are facing.

Navigating Together with Compassion

The emotional rollercoaster of this year has been a difficult one for many of us. We have faced challenges both personally and collectively, and it has been easy to feel overwhelmed and lost. But through it all, I have learned the importance of self-compassion.

It is okay not to have everything figured out. It is okay to feel the weight of challenges. In fact, acknowledging our shared vulnerability is one of the most powerful things we can do. When we come together and share our experiences, we find that we are not alone. We find strength in each other, and we learn to navigate the rollercoaster with grace.

One of the things that has helped me through this year is my faith. God has consistently reminded me of where my worth lies. It doesn’t lie in who I am, what I’m known for, or even in what I accomplish. My worth lies in Him. I am only able to do anything because of Him.

Another thing that God has reminded me of is that the enemy will come against what he feels is a threat. This has made me truly believe that God has a plan in everything that is happening. He is not surprised by the challenges we face. He knows what we are capable of, and He is working all things together for our good.

I am so grateful for the lessons I have learned this year. I am more compassionate with myself and others. I am more confident in my faith. And I am more determined than ever to live my life for God’s glory.

I know that the rollercoaster is not over yet. There will be more challenges ahead. But I am not afraid. I know that God is with me, and He will help me to navigate the way.

To all of you dealing with your own struggles, I want you to know that you are not alone. In our shared hardships, we find a unique strength—a strength that unites us in our shared humanity. 2023 may have been a tough year, but we’re going to move into this next year with God’s favor.

Here’s to the journey we’ve braved together—the highs that brought joy, the lows that brought growth, and the shared experiences that bond us. As we step into the new year, let’s carry forward the lessons, celebrate the victories, and offer ourselves and others the compassion and understanding that makes the journey a little brighter.

hey there!

This isn't your typical blog

I might be super messy action at times, basically like throwing spaghetti at the wall to see if it sticks. But I also happen to be your classic overthinker with a touch of perfectionist too. Makes for an interesting combo in my world.
Here I like to share whatever is helping me scale this business I love- marketing, social media, health, parenting, my love for Jesus, and a glimpse behind the curtain of my life.

We all have to start somewhere, am I right? I knew nothing about social media when I started, but I've learned a thing or two.
