When I Grow Up......

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
                                                                                                                                 Jeremiah 29:11

It’s funny, when we’re little we want to be a doctor, lawyer, teacher, ballerina, dancer etc. As we grow up all of our dreams kind of fade away and we start doing something that we thought we would never do. When I was a little girl I loved playing basketball, and I would always say that one day, when I grow up, I would be play in the WNBA. I played throughout middle school and then finally lost my desire to play even though I was good at it. I still played basketball with my friends, just not on a team. WNBA wasn't one of my main things anymore. Then my desire changed to becoming an artist. I always had the sense of creativity, and that came from my family. Growing up is like being on a roller coaster, one minute you’re turning right and the next you’re going left. We’re always changing in life with new dreams and goals to fulfill.                                                                                        
One thing that has always stuck with me and been a great desire, was growing up and owning a business. I never saw myself working for anyone other than God. When I was 15 I started working for my mom doing childcare; that was my first job. I really enjoyed doing that for 5 years. When I turned 22 I started selling Avon, I always had that entrepreneurship in my blood. Now that I’m in my late 20’s I finally have my life in order and pursuing my own online business. I thank God for directing my life in His path and not my path. There is a reason for me not playing basketball and making it to the WNBA and I have no regrets. I love what God has been doing with “My Unique Girlz”. I never thought I would be a blogger a few years back and making a difference in young people lives. I was always an encourager growing up, but never thought I would be using it to blog to people around the world. Through life experiences never get frustrated on what you want to do with your life. We will always go through different changes until we find the right path that God wants us to go on. No matter how old you are it’s never too late to fulfill your dreams. So be patience and you will find your career path for your life. You will have no regrets either.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.

I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …


I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139: 14

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.

In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
