Ladies ladies ladies. I’m not here to judge. I have way too much going on in my own life to be judging anyone. But listen, we’ve got to do better when it comes to putting all of our personal relationship business in the streets. Let me get to the point. Relationships are a beautiful thing. Love is a beautiful thing. Many crave relationships and even more believe that marriage is their calling. That’s all fine and dandy. Do me one favor though…
At 20 I made the decision to join the United States Air Force. At the time, I had no idea how big of a burden had been placed on my shoulders. At such a young age, I had a great responsibility, and I felt as though maybe I wasn’t cut out for such a task. I endured, honorably. God kept me under his wing during my 2 deployments in Qatar and Afghanistan. Afghanistan, that was a tough mission. Although I can’t go into detail of the mission, lets just say I’m blessed to have made it home alive with all of my limbs and my sanity. Since I’ve been home, I’m thankful for all the perks that comes along with being a veteran. I’ve had the opportunity to obtain my bachelor’s degree, paid for by the military…and if I wanted to go as far as becoming a doctor, in the state of Texas, that would also be paid for. Not to mention, while in school, all your books and cost of living is paid for. Of course, there’s much more, but for these alone I’m thankful. By honorably serving my country, and risking my life for the freedom of our nation, I can honestly say that I’m a proud veteran and wouldn’t have changed this for the world. Although the burden was big, God blessed me with so much more. Continue reading The Bigger the Burden, The Bigger the Blessing.
Where to begin? There is so much to tell you! I’ll simply start by saying the journey to 30 has been interesting and I wouldn’t change it for world. I’ve learned so much, conquered many things and am who I am today because of this journey. I always get really weird about my birthday’s in general. It’s like I’m so grateful I made it but then it’s like oh no I’m a year older? Then I have the honor of remembering my deceased biological mom who’s birthday is the day after mine. Love you Mommy!! Muah!
However, I am all about women empowerment- no really? I’m not like those who scream it all through social media but have no fruit to back it up and or as catty as they come. Was that shady? Someone has got to say it, lol. I thought it would be really cool to share with you a few things I’ve learned through my journey in hopes to inspire and encourage you. Without further ado, Here we go! Continue reading Robyn Robbins: A Few Things I learned Along The Way.
The other day a young lady confided in me via Instagram. She spoke to me about her lack of faith of finally reaching her calling in life. I was honored that she felt comfortable enough to confide in me, and I enjoyed our heartfelt conversation. After the conversation was over, I sat and thought for a while. This young lady isn’t the only one having trouble believing that her blog, business, personal life, or job will finally grow in the way of her vision. There are many people out there, including myself, that sometimes wonder if what we’re doing will finally pay off, and when.

It’s so easy to become discouraged when you look around and see everyone’s vision falling into place but yours. What we don’t see on the surface is all the hard work, sleepless nights, failures, stressful days, effort, praying over, and faith building these individuals have put into their work in order to bring their vision to reality. So this is the basis of this blog post. Continue reading Purpose. Power. Persistence: Having Faith When You’re Discouraged
As a new contributor to this blog, I thought long and hard about how I would introduce myself to you. I thought about doing something light or witty. Then I thought maybe I should do something trendy, but the truth is I wouldn’t know a trend even if it was dropped on my doorstep in an amazon prime box. All I can do is introduce you to the me I am today, but in order to do that, I must first take you back twenty and a bit years.
