Everyone In Your Life Needs A Seat

Your job is your purpose sis. Your assignment, is your responsibility. The people in our lives all serve a purpose, but it's up to us to determine what purpose that is.

We're talking friends, family members, coworkers - anybody can get it sis! People are going to do what they want to do, but you have to keep doing what you were meant to do. No harm....no foul.

The Company You Keep

There will be times in our lives where we have tons of friends, our calendar is full of events, and our lives feel full. There is a reason for that season. But there will also be times where our lives where it's just us. We don't have a lot of friends, we don't relate anymore to the people we used to relate to, and we feel separated. We feel isolated, and there is a reason for that season too. With separation, comes elevation sis. Your growth is not a group project. Sometimes it will take a season of just you, a season of doing it alone, a season of separation to get yourself there. Subscribe To Our YouTube!
