On this day one year ago, I blindly embarked on the journey of my life. Today comes with many emotions. My mind is all over the place. One year ago today, I had no idea what I was getting to. I took a step of faith and a vow to do what God had called me to do. There were so many times that I felt confused and lost, and as God continues to enlarge my territory I often find myself experiencing those same emotions. Royalty Mindset taught me so much. I can say that I am not the same person I was when this journey began a year ago. I had to learn what true faith was and how to operate in God’s timing instead of my own. Another great lesson that I learned was that it was no longer just about me. When I took on this task, it was as if I got married and had a family. My actions and life no longer just affected me, but as well as all of those that believed in me. I couldn’t do things freely, but had to act with consideration of my audience, my mentees, and all of my supporters. This helped to hold me accountable and for that, I am thankful.
I have to be honest. The days leading up to the one year anniversary were not easy for me. As I approached the mark, I could not help but to reflect over the year. I felt disappointed in myself because I felt that I had not done a year’s worth of work. I felt that I had failed and could have done so much more for Royalty Mindset. I had to be reminded of the aim of Royalty Mindset: “To inspire and encourage others by using the voice that God has given me”. I had to see that even though I felt I had not done enough work or maybe not in the way I wanted that I had indeed achieved my goal. The stories of those that have been inspired and encouraged through Royalty Mindset never stopped rolling in and I do not take that lightly. Those testimonies are my motivation to keep going! I am completely overwhelmed by all that was accomplished throughout the year!
I have so many to thank, but we all know what happens when we begin to call out names. With that being said, I truly want to thank every single person that supported me throughout the year! To every person that read a post, shared a post, left a comment, sent an email or text, bought a shirt, bought a brooch, donated money, featured RM on their sites, gave shout outs, passed on the word, prayed, invited me to their events, had me as a speaker, and so much more, I honestly do not take these things lightly, THANK YOU!
The year was filled with many opened doors and so many opportunities that I could have never imagined. I truly give all glory to God for choosing me for such a task as this. It is truly only the beginning for Royalty Mindset! Please continue to lift me up in prayer as I continue to carry out this task. I think I will have me some cake today to celebrate. Tomorrow marks a new beginning and I know it will be greater. From here, we can only go higher! I love you all!!
