This morning I woke up to Facebook telling me I had been friends with my husband for 3 years. I knew the date that Harold first messaged me (September 13th, 2012) but I had no idea September 3rd was the day he sent me a friend request. I am really glad for facebook’s little notification because I love remembering special dates because they are a great reason to celebrate and I am a firm believer in celebrating everything in life, but I am even more grateful for what it has reminded me of. Be Bold!
People are often asked where they see themselves in 5 or 10 years and that is quite a scary question. A lot can happen in 5 years, heck in just 3 years I met, fell in love with, and married my best friend! If you would have asked me where I saw myself in 5 years on September 3rd, 2012 (at this point I thought Harold was a distant relative since our mutual friends were my family members haha) I would have said I hoped that I had found love and was doing something that I love, but realistically in my heart I probably thought I would still be single and super confused about what to do with my life (half of that is still partly true).
You see it took action to get to where I am today, waking up with sweet kisses from my husband while he whispered in my ear telling me I was beautiful before he left for work this morning. Maybe it seems silly but Harold had to be bold in getting to know me, in sending that friend request and eventually mustering up the courage to message me.
So my message to you today is to be bold. Chase after your dreams, whether it is a career you are passionate about, a person, or a lifestyle. Take that first step whatever it is so that you don’t have to wait 5 years to see where you are or what you are doing, but instead you can actively pursue your dreams by being bold. Take a chance, you might just be surprised how it ends!
Love God, Love People, Make A Difference,
