On the 7th day of January, God blessed me with an outstanding mother. I'm thankful and grateful for that and all the goodness she's brought to my life. Through ups and downs, she remains one of the best people to ever grace my life.
It's funny because as I continue to grow up, I find myself replicating her in more ways than one. It's frightening because there should only be one of her in my eyes. Yet here I am, her twin. From short hair, to loving a sale, to being a thrift goddess, to finding hidden gems and places to eat.
On this day, aside from celebrating my mother's birthday I went to lunch with one of my most favorite people in this world, my sister Alyssa. Alyssa and I have been tight since struggling through the IB programme at Hillsboro High School. From my acceptance to Spelman to her conviction on deciding between Spelman or Xavier. There has been support on both sides for whatever we decide to pursue.
We ate at my new favorite spot in Nashville, Vui's Kitchen. The place is so cozy and the food is phenomenal. I honestly think that I'm addicted to their Summer Rolls. As usual, our conversation was enriching and so, so necessary. We both left with a greater feeling of purpose and a drive to continue to work hard...... because why not?
We both suffer from doubtful-syndrome. You know, the feeling of thinking that you may not be cut out for something? Thinking that you may not be up to par. However, we both took a stand and reassured the other that we are worthy of great things & that with God anything is possible.
I challenge anyone reading this post to seek people in your life that will continue to motivate you and push you, despite your protests. These are the type of people we all need to get ahead in any aspect of our lives.
