Happy Friday Everyone!!

I hope everyone had a great week this week! Is everyone done Christmas shopping? 
I am not! BUT- I have all next week off to help with that problem. I am looking forward to having some time off of work to relax, wind down, and enjoy my loved ones. I love having us all together.

As I reflect on this past year, I see so many awesome things that happened and also some trials that I went through. But through it all, I am so thankful and blessed to be alive, healthy, and safe. 

I am calling this last year my year of adjustments. There were so many changes that happened in my life, big and small, that I had to adjust to. I am not typically a person that likes a whole lot of change- but I am thankful that God has helped me through each adjustment as they have come.

Certain things I have learned through this year of adjusting:

1] God Will Always Provide. 
He really put me to the test this year when it came to trusting him. I had some time of worry with my job, I bought a house by myself at 23, I became financially independent from my parents, I moved away from certain friendships into new ones, my mom got married to a new guy and gained a new family, etc... A lot of things in different areas of my life changed. But through them all, I have learned, become wiser, built better relationships, and really built my relationship wit the Lord- which is the best thing that happened.

2] Forgiveness is a Choice. 
Everyone has had a time in their life when they had to forgive someone. But I often hear it's easier said than done- and that's true. Certain things happened in different relationships that forgiveness was crucial to move forward. And one thing I focused on with my friends, family and loved ones is really forgive them and I am so glad I did because such good has come from it. I used to say I forgive them and still be mad (which I can still struggle with, don't get me wrong), but in these certain situations, when I made it a choice, it conquered all negative thoughts and allowed me to see them more for how God sees them.

3] Your Attitude Matters.
I could go on and on about how this applies to life. But in short, our attitudes matter with everything we do. My attitude right now is "can I change it? nope. So I am not going to let it bother me. I am just going to do better with Aisha."

What sort of things has this year brought you? Any major learnings?



  1. Great thoughts! This year has taught me so many great things, I learned and am still learning how to be a mother, I gave up a lot to gain something for my future, I've become a small business owner, and I have grown so many great relationships! So many more I could say, but truly I have learned to trust in Jesus through it all. Man, I know as He proves He's there to us time and time again, it gets easier to just trust Him and I am learning that!

  2. That is a great post and I agree with all your thoughts! Carpe Diem!

  3. I agree with all of the above. When I've been stressed with my internship, college,exams, school clubs, etc God has helped me through those situations. -
