I love the Fall months, because it’s my favorite time of year. A lot of people have told me I love the Fall because I’m a Fall baby – which could be true; I’m not denying it. However, I believe its more than just the fact that I was born in October. The Fall season brings the holidays closer, the closing of the year, and more time with family and friends as work weeks start to dwindle.
I’m super huge on family, and I love being around them. Being around my family relaxes me and reminds me that no matter what we go through or what we face, we still love and have each other at the end of the day.
As I am aware that not everyone has that bond or type of relationship with their family. The definition of family isn’t just limited to having a blood relation with someone, you don’t even have to grow up in the same household. Family is connection. Family is love. Family is feeling. If you didn’t grow up having a close bond with your biological family, I suggest just creating your own. You don’t have to be alone in this world, especially during the holidays. However, if you don’t have any close friends or a community of people around you that you can just let your guard down around and be yourself – come be apart of mine. My family is BIG because we don’t turn anyone away.
My family is my constant inspiration – good or bad. I’m inspired to do better and to keep being myself. So, I want to inspire you to do the same.
Do better & Be yourself.
This doesn’t mean complain, it means accept the discomfort with gratitude and face it with grace.
We may not have the things or circumstances we desire, but that doesn’t mean we can’t obtain them. It’s all about putting in the effort to shift our settings. I’ve been fortunate enough to grow up around a family that encourages each other to stay authentic and will still keep it real when you start to act out of character. Sometimes there’s nothing good council or advice can’t fix.
Certain circumstances can be solved by a careful thought or rearranging specific priorities. Some can be solved by discussion and good advice, and some can be solved only by prayer. However, we must be open to the idea of things getting uncomfortable before we see improvement. This doesn’t mean complain, it means accept the discomfort with gratitude, face it with grace, and have faith that it everything will get better
