Blog anniversary!

📷: Pinterest
It has been 4 years since I said YES to the adventure that this platform brings and I can honestly say I am so glad that I did. Writing is an art that I delight in and journaling my life story [especially the faith aspects] is something that I am more confident of now that it is interwoven with my calling in life. 
I can almost recall my very first blog post and in it I expressed my hopes in these very few words; 
"I will be sharing pieces of my lifestyle ranging from fashion, beauty, travel and so much more, expect the unexpected!" 
& I absolutely love that possible clause at the end, 'expect the unexpected' because this journey has been nothing short of that. Not all my hopes have yet come to pass but with the pieces that I've shared as authentic as I could have, I have seen much fruit. My faith life has been an open book, my personal style has evolved and I've grown as that's part of the journey [and I am still growing]. But as is life, I've also walked through seasons of darkness, some days have been slow, some months challenging yet each and every one of them have been tailored into the fabric of the story I have told and will tell. 
Could this platform be the same without your readership? Absolutely no! So thank you for coming on this journey with me. 50 231 views, you did that! 
I love you and I appreciate you.
The best is yet to come!

It's time to soar!

I know its only just August but I've already started peering over the horizon to the endless possibilities that 2019 may hold. I've mentioned this before, its around this time of the year that I get a sense of a new season imminent. The coming to an end of summer for me and the preparation for autumn pronounces its a new season and its time to go again! Faithfully as the months go by I start gleaning and leaning to God's Word and draw closer to hear His voice about what's yet to come. 
It's never as straightforward as 1,2, 3 but I love that He rewards those that diligently seek Him. 
Don't get me wrong in the meantime I don't disregard the four months left before the year ends. It is during this time I begin to sow what I've been faithfully preparing in the first half of the year (and beyond). For where I find myself on my journey, stepping outside of comfort zones and doing away with the status quo is how I am going to navigate the months ahead.
Don't let me spoil it for you but I'm nervously excited about the days ahead. Adventure awaits, restoration is here and there is an abundance of joy on the other side.
If I was to let you in on conversations I have with myself right now, this is what you would hear: 
'Anitah, the harvest is ripe, now, be strong and courageous.
It's time to SOAR!
Get ready, get ready, get ready.
For no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered the heart of man
the things God has prepared for them that love Him {1 Corinthians 2:9}.
