The Positivity Project

So sue me, but I'm a copy cat. I saw Katie and Mia doing this fun little positive post and I had to jump on the bandwagon. Originally there were four different questions/statements to answer, but I decided to change things up a tiny bit. Plus, a little originality never hurt anybody. 

ONE. Something you love about yourself.
I love the fact that I am a wife. Ever since I was a little girl, I remember dreaming about my future husband. I even have diaries that I would write letters in for my future hubby. (I really need to dig those out, where ever they are)! As my creator, I put God first. But right after God, my husband is my number one. I feel utterly blessed that we've shared 3.5 years of marriage thus far, and I cannot wait to grow old with him. He owns my heart!
TWO. Something that you are proud of.
I take pride in so many blessings I've been awarded in this beautiful life (ex: my marriage, getting my master's degree, owing a house, etc) but I think one of my favorites is accepting the woman that God created me to be. In my opinion, I had many opportunities in life to become a no-good type of person. But I am so thankful that God gave me the strength to become me - exactly as I am today. 

THREE. The best thing that has happened to you recently. 
I don't think this should come as a surprise to anyone, but getting pregnant has been such an overwhelming experience. Each week, I feel more and more proud of my daughter for growing so big and strong. I feel thankful to God for allowing this miracle to take place in our lives after two years of praying. I also feel thankful for the doctors who were knowledgeable enough to perform the amazing act that In Vitro Fertilization entails.

My confidence rests in God, that he will always provide. And I know that Kensington's name was written in the book of life a long time ago; way before we decided on IVF. I just think that our route to getting pregnant was supposed to be down the non-traditional road. God used the doctors to aid in the process that we were supposed to go through.
FOUR. Give someone a compliment.
Keeping with the positivity theme in mind, I am going to pay a compliment to someone who I don't exactly like, nor do I have a relationship with due to bridges being burned. No, I'm not going to say their name, because it doesn't even really matter. This is about me being positive - it doesn't matter if this person knows that I'm talking about them or not.

Dear secret person: When you and I used to have a relationship, I admired the kindness that you had in your heart. On the outside, you may have been perceived as someone that is rough and emotion-less, but I could see past that. I think you genuinely meant well and had the best of intentions.


  1. So glad that you did this! You definitely need to dig out those journals for your husband - it would be a perfect belated Valentines Day gift :) Can't wait to see you become a mama to sweet Kensington, so happy for you!

  2. Such a positive post. It is nice to read such positivity. I also believe that your daughter is such a blessing and was meant to be. I'm so happy that y'all made it to the 24 week mark. Each week is bringing y'all one week closer to your daughter.

  3. So cute!! I am going to have to do this :)

  4. I love this idea! I just borrowed and it posted on it as well. I am in such a good mood now that I read your post and wrote my own. More positivity!!!

  5. love this post!! praise god for number three!!! :)

  6. Love, love, love this post! It's so important to be positive in a world filled with such negativity. I'm surrounded by negative Nancy's at work and it really has a terrible effect on me. Positivity is powerful!

  7. This is such a good idea. Live your positivity.

  8. So glad you did this too :) You need to dig those letters out, how cool is that?!
