Adapting

Being born with a birth defect(cleft lip and palate) weighing only 3 pounds and 9oz, blind in one eye, I’ve always knew how to adapt. I was humbled at the age of 4 when I looked in the mirror and realized that I was different. You laughed at me because I was different and I laughed at you because you all are the same. I never gave up, I kept pushing through, even after being bullied through elementary and high school. You do not have a disability because the biggest disability is one who has a negative mindset and if you hang around me long enough you will find that I don’t allow that energy. We adapt to our circumstances and we move forward.

Happy Monday

Happy Monday, happy week😊

I hope your day and week are overwhelmingly successful!

I am so grateful that we are connected!

Worry

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.

Proverbs 12:25 NLT

Courage

Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9 ESV

Depression

Being born with a birth defect I faced the overwhelming feeling of depression at an early age.

I began to look at both sides of my family and I soon realized that I was the only one who was born with a cleft lip and palate.

So the big question popped up in my head, why me?

I took this question to my Great-Grandma, Annie Mae Hardy and she told me that God don’t make mistakes and that I have purpose.

I’m alive today because my family spoke life into me, not despair.

So when I get depressed, I quickly speak life into myself, I think about my journey thus far, I think about my journey moving forward and all life has the offer.

The Vision

Habakkuk 2:2 NIV

The Lords Answer:

Then the LORD replied: Write down the revelation (vision) and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.

*Herald A person or thing viewed as a sign that something is about to happen.
