My first blog in my 40s! Whoo hoo! Part of me is expecting it to be a super deep, philosophical post. But, the majority of me is like well, UMM you are still the same person you were last week; things don’t change THAT radically, that quickly!
First, and foremost: I am overwhelmed and humbled by all of the love I have received. God has blessed me in many (many, many ways). He has also given me the amazing gift of hearing friends (and strangers!) share how I have helped inspire them! I really don’t have words to describe it, but it truly is humbling and a blessing to hear someone tell you how you have inspired them! Honestly, it is even MORE humbling when you are an inspiration by “just being yourself”. I truly love when God lets me have a snip it of how he is using me for His work!
My 40th bday celebrations (oh you KNOW I do meal plural as in many,many!) have been so breathtaking! I am so full of love! I had the most amazing birthday weekend and week! I celebrated with my dearest friends and framily! I had the most amazing experiences! And, I spoiled myself (a lot!) I am so grateful for everyone who has truly made me feel so special! THANK YOU!
Last week, I was doing Happy Hour with 2 of my girlfriends (girlfriends I have not seen in many (many) months due to my work schedule)- it was wonderful! We had a great time! We met 2 nice gentlemen sitting next to us – they took our pic and we chatted a bit. When the girls left and I didn’t (I still had a full beer) I went and sat with the gents. OHH EMM GEE! Almost 4 hours later I was leaving!! We had the most AMAZING, and profound conversation! I honestly can’t even articulate it 100%! They challenged some of my thought processes and feelings, I gave them insight and challenged them to think about some things differently. It was honestly one of the most amazing conversations of MY LIFE! Kinda wish I could articulate it better, but I can’t. It was such a blessing to meet 2 total strangers who really helped reiterate a lot of things that I already knew, but didn’t want to believe/see (God is funny like that how He will use a total stranger to show you things)! And it was so awesome to hear some of the repeated messages God has for me! I wish I could bottle the feeling I had at the end of our conversation! Again, so humbled and so blessed (the ongoing theme of my bday).
There are things happening on the horizon, I can FEEL God working and using me for His good, using me to inspire and educate others. It is the craziest but most radical feeling ever. I am so excited to see what comes next!
My friend sent me a pic saying “Cupcakes are Muffins That Believe in Miracles!” and it totally helped inspire this blog. I AM cupcake! And without the shadow of a doubt I believe in miracles! I believe in BIG, Giant miracles as well as day to day miracles.
So tonight, here is to believing in miracles! To believing anything and everything is possible. To trusting in God’s plan (even if it feels conflicting with your own). Here is to what comes next! Always believe in miracles!
More to come…..
