Awesome

Dear Bianca Angela,

ThisĀ is mommy’s way of saying…don’t just do what makes you happy. Instead, do what brings you great joy no matter how uncomfortable, hard, scary, or even crazy it may seem to others. Remember that you can only become amazing when, with bold faith and purpose, you do something that others won’t even dare to do. So when you find yourself wanting to make a dream happen or to relive a dream again, listen only to yourself. When your heart says YOU CAN and your gut screams DO IT, GO FOR IT! You owe yourself a second (or even third and a fourth) shot at awesome.
Love,
Mommy

TBR Dream Marathon: Day 2

It was a wise decision to grab the book, I Declare by Joel Osteen, from the rack last week when Scholastic came to hold a Book Fair in our school. It is the perfect motivational book for someone like me who is about to pursue her dream of finishing a full marathon.
I am in Day 4 of the book and it reads, “I declare that it is not too late to accomplish everything God has set in my heart. I have not missed my window of opportunity. God has moments of favor in my future. He is preparing me right now because He is about to release a special grace to help me accomplish that dream. This is my time. This is my moment. I receive it today! This is my declaration.”
Such beautiful words. It reminded me of why I am pursuing this dream. It is because I want to bring to fullfillment exactly what the Lord wants me to be—strong, determined, and victorious. Indeed, I am going to stay passionate about what God put in my heart and I will accomplish everything that God placed in my heart.
