God Is In Control … Even At The Beach!

I feel super grateful and blessed to have so many flowers growing in my garden!

First, I have a new apartment that I’ve been praying for! And, second, I’m working with mothers and women who I absolutely love– all my clients are so amazing!

I am really enjoying this new chapter of my life– being a doula has blessed me in so many ways. It has taught me patience and understanding for others. It has also taught me how to create boundaries and to nurture myself.

Despite how good things are right now, sometimes I reflect back on what I thought my life would look like at this point.

It’s hard to believe that just a year and a half ago, I was married and pregnant. I was married to a man who I saw as Black Jesus, LOL! I loved him so much that I was willing to give birth to a child that I really didn’t want. I just thought my ex-husband would be a good dad, so I wanted to have a child for him because he wanted one. In the process, I really lost myself in my marriage and made it all about my ex.

At the end of the day, I’m glad that, not only was God present, but he was in complete control. And now I’m out here living my best life and crushing my goals.

Anyway, after a hectic week of moving into my new apartment (yay!) and birthing a new baby for one of my doula mom clients, I really needed to have some time at the beach to release and restart!
