Chapter 27: What I’m Thankful For

Guess who’s back…back again!
I was gone for a while now I’m back with a new post! 

Ok…let me stop! Lol

On the 2nd I turned Lucky 27 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So far it’s honestly been much better than 26…

This past year I’ve gone through highs, but also a lot of lows. Dealing with finances, career, situationships, friendships, family, spirituality, overall direction…I kinda lost my mind at times, but along the way God pulled me out of my funk. Everything isn’t sunshine and roses and I most definitely don’t have it all figured out, but I feel different. I feel more level-headed and clear-minded as if I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a season of understanding, a season of purpose, a season of thankfulness, and a season of divine direction.

In honor of my 27 years of life, I decided to countdown 27 things I’m thankful for:

27. My good old 2005 Toyota Corolla

This car has been with my family since 2005 and officially became all mine in 2009. Despite it being over 254,000 miles now, the car still runs (alright) and gets me where I need to be. I’m especially grateful that I don’t have to pay a car note at the moment!

26. A clean pair of Chuck Taylors

If anyone wants to gift me with some new Converses to add to my collection by all means lol


25. Orange Juice

Like actual Orange Juice, not no concentrate!
