Today is my 27th birthday! Yayyy!! Happy Birthday to me! I feel so thankful, grateful and blessed to be able to see another year of life. God is really amazing. I love the number 7 so I am especially excited to be 27. I am looking forward to more life, more everything!
This year, I journaled 27 of my favorite quotes that have helped me pushed forward through all the ups and downs. I wanted to put them here on the blog to not only share words that inspire me but just in case there is someone out there that needs to read one in order to keep going. I think that they are pretty self-explanatory. Forgive me for not including the authors, I took them straight out of my journal where I scribble something as soon as I hear it or read it. Happy reading!

5.) You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.
6.) When you live your own dream, you don’t have time to be a hater.
7.) Let it go!
8.) Eagles fly where lesser birds cannot fly, so eagles can do what lesser birds cannot do.
9.) If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
10.) The moment you start to embrace how you have been formed and fashioned is the moment you step into the very purpose for which you were created.
11.) Until someone says something directly to you, consider it unsaid.
12.) If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.
13.)Be fair, always remind yourself what life feels like at the other end of you.
14.) The grass is greener where you water it.
15.) When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.
16.) I believe I have inside of me, everything that I need to live a bountiful life.
17.) Life in itself is an empty canvas.
18.) It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s what you think you are not.
19.) It’s you versus you.
20.) Remain calm in every situation because peace equals power.
21.) Think less, feel more; Talk less, listen more; Judge less, accept more; Watch less, do more; complain less, appreciate more; fear less, love more.
22.) Everyone in your life is meant to be apart of your journey. But not all of them are bound to stay. Most often, you have to let people go.
23.) Trying to become a good or a better human being sounds like a commendable and high minded thing to do, yet it is an endeavor you cannot ultimately succeed in unless there is a shift in consciousness. You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge.
24.) You, and you alone, get to determine whether you are going to react positively about something or negatively about something-or interestingly, have no reaction at all. Your emotions are entirely under your control. Your feelings are what you want them to be.
25.) Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner.
26.) God is in her, she will not fail. Psalm 46:5
27.) The universe sends us exactly what we are ready for at the exact time we need it in our lives.
