➡️Show Me Your Friends and I’ll Show You Your Future⬅️ -Pastor John Faison The importance of having the right people around you. One of the things I was missing when I moved to Atlanta were friends. It made my transition difficult because I wanted what I had back home. I’m very protective of who I allow in my space. My prayer became God staff me with right people. It wasn’t easy because I had to figure out who was really for me. I can finally say after 3 years I have friends. One thing for sure they will not allow me stay where I am. I can be my authentic self around them and have candid conversations. They’ll tell me the truth even when I don’t want to hear it. Make sure you have people that will believe in you when your struggling to believe in yourself. People that will push you and want to see you become the best version of yourself. People that supports you and tell you how proud they are. People who will go to war over you. Listen most of my friends were already building. By me being connected to them and seeing them grind made me want it for myself. Re-evaluate your friends. Make sure you have people properly placed in your life. They’re either adding value to you or taking away from you. * Stop Accepting Mediocre from people when you’re giving them your best. #friendssupportfriends

Family over Everything Sometimes God knows what you need. My family and I celebrated Christmas the weekend of MLK. I contemplated whether I would go home or not until the day I was to drive home. I didn’t feel like being around people; I just wanted to stay home and be by myself in the dark. One thing I know is anytime I’m around family, I get recharged. I mustard of the strength and drove home. I wasn’t expecting what my family had in store for me. As I’ve gotten older, I don’t expect much for Christmas. I just appreciate the time with my family and making new memories. It’s was time to open gifts they made me go first. One by one, I opened my presents and the tears flowed. My family showered me with so much love. What you don’t see are countless tears I’ve cried over the past months. You don’t see the internal battles of me telling myself, Tasha, you’re worth the investment. You don’t see the loneliness I felt and lack of support. You don’t see the exhaustion and the fight in me dwindling. I had given up. I talked myself out, completing my journals and the other things I started. I was over it!! I was sick of feeling like I kept getting the short end of the stick. My family then reminded me of how love I am and how much they believed in me. They sowed into me. It seemed each time I pursued something, something happened that caused me to put it on the back burner. As you can see in this video below, they wouldn’t allow me to give up on myself. Y’all, I was too outdone. My heart was so full from the outpour of love my family showed me. I wasn’t going to post this video, but I hope it serves as a reminder that you have people that believe in you. People that won’t allow you to give up on dreams. Thank you to each person that has sown into to me. Whether it was with your time, insight, money, encouragement, prayer, or being a listening ear to bounce my ideas off of. I’m internally grateful. I’m so excited. Are you guys ready for them (My Journals)? It’s time to build. *Excuse the background. We had a lot going on. All of us were home. *The commentary in this video is funny to me.
