My birthday is in a week. I want to be happy and excited. I really do BUT I find myself thinking about everything I don’t have simply because I don’t feel like I have much.

Thank God for the essentials. All my needs are met. I’m so blessed && grateful.

But financially && emotionally I’m a wreck. Trying to be positive and fighting depression daily.

It’s gotten to the point ALL of my friends have kids. We used to be able to just live and kick it now our ability to hang out is governed by sitters and sickness.

I do not want to have children outside of wedlock but I don’t think I want to get married. I kinda feel like my mom is throwing a bit of pressure on it.

I just want some stability. Heck I just got a boyfriend && what an experience this has been.

He’s an assistant football coach at a NCAA school, talk about busy. I want him to excel at his job which he’s been doing but I don’t want to lose our relationship and ourselves in the process

BUT this is what I wanted. I want him && I knew it wasn’t gonna be ideal. When we’re together there is no place I’d rather be but I hate to question is it even worth it?

School starts in a month. If I haven’t received a full time gig, I’ll have three part times. One of which includes teaching at a local college. I mean I’d rather a full time gig but I have things that have to be sorted out I guess.

On top of the fact that I hate my hair…

Just my Monday thoughts.

spiritualinspiration:

God has an assignment for you that nobody else can fulfill. God needs you. He needs your gifts, your smile, your love, your passion. You are a part of His divine plan. You have something to offer nobody else can offer. Nobody has your exact personality, your exact looks. There is something unique about you. Don’t wear that “average” label. If you think you’re average, then you’ll be average. If you think you’re ordinary, then you’ll live an ordinary, “get by life” and never do anything great.

The truth is, there is nothing ordinary about you. You have the fingerprints of God all over you. The Creator of the universe breathed His life into you. He crowned you with His favor. You have royal blood flowing through your veins. You have a destiny to fulfill, something greater than you’ve ever even imagined. Embrace His truth, embrace His love, and embrace the blessings He has in store for your future!
