Weirdly enough, this move was something that I struggled with for quite some time. I felt embarrassed and debated whether or not this apartment would be too fancy for me at this time in my life.
After talking to my therapist and my parents, I learned that often times people of color have shame around their success. I can definitely identify with this — the struggle has been real for so long, that I didn’t realize the come up has been real too.
I’ve always been transparent with you, so in today’s video I’m sharing the full story of how I got from a modest apartment to my dream space. Watch the video and leave a comment with your thoughts…
Exciting news…I’m officially moved into my new apartment! I still can’t believe the space that God has opened for me. I never saw this coming, I thought it would be years, or when I was married that I would be able to live in a place like this.
As I move into this next stage of my life, I am reflecting back on these past 12 months. It has been a series of ups and downs, highs and lows. But through it all, God has been faithful, and everything that I’ve gone through leads me to where I am today.
I hope that my journey encourages you to keep pursuing your goals. The things that we dream about are possible. It is easy to get caught up in our own thoughts and feelings of not being worthy of something so amazing. I certainly felt like I didn’t deserve such a gift. But as Proverbs 18:16 states, “Your gifts will make room for you.”
Just keep doing you, go after your dreams, and watch what happens.
