Kay’s Korner: 31 Things I’ve Learned

Kay’s Korner: 31 Things I’ve Learned
  1. My relationship with God must remain my number one priority or everything else will crumble. I have a tendency to get into the groove and then start feeling myself and lose sight of my Creator. But God always pulls me back in. Always. He never lets me stray too far away and His grace has never left me and for that I will always be grateful. I value our relationship more than anything in this world.
  2. God always comes through. Always.
  3. My relationship with God will never be perfect and I rely on grace way too much and that’s not a bad thing. I’m still trying to get to a point where I see God as my friend versus the Father waving His fist at me whenever I sin. Still trying to strike a balance there.
  4. While I am perfectly fine with people who share different beliefs, I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t believe in anything. People who have no belief system usually think too highly of themselves and can’t be trusted. And when I say beliefs, I’m not referring solely to religion either. Believe in God, humanity, love, something but not nothing.
  5. Money isn’t everything but it is important. I always want to be in a position to take care of myself financially.
  6. I like clothes and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. The problems come when you go into debt to be cute.
  7. My grown woman body is here to stay. These hips and these thighs ain’t going nowhere. And that is perfectly fine.
  8. For a while, really up until recently, I realized that as a believer, I have an obligation to move differently. I can’t be out here acting like God ain’t real.
  9. A little hard work and focus will get your further than you realize.
  10. Just write. Something will come out and you’ll be surprised later.
  11. I am a good friend because friendship is important to me. I work towards cultivating meaningful relationships and connecting with people beyond the surface. This is the only time I match energy. I know my friendship is valuable so if I don’t feel like it’s being reciprocated, I have no problem cutting ties.
  12. College was truly a scam.
  13. All I can do is my best and leave the rest to God.
  14. A vegan lifestyle alleviates PMS tremendously and limits PMDD symptoms. I’m not responsible enough to stick with it.
  15. Arguing is a waste of time. Just let people believe what they want. It’s not my responsibility to change anyone’s mind about me or anything.
  16. Reading keeps my brain agile and it’s one of my favorite things to do.
  17. Unplugging keeps me sane. Social media has its perks but I’m better when I’m not on it. I’m more creative, focused and at peace.
  18. Life comes at you fast. Wear a helmet and a seatbelt.
  19. The bruises and scrapes are war wounds and are going to tell a hell of a story in a few years. At least I can say I tried.
  20. Just make a decision. Unless it goes against my values or morals, there is no right or wrong.
  21. Anybody and everybody can’t preach to me. I enjoy a good word but I am mindful of who I allow to minister to me.
  22. Don’t withhold forgiveness. You know how preachers always reference “pressed down, shaken together and running over” as a prosperity scripture? It’s actually about forgiveness. Forgive and it will be given to you. Pressed down, shaken together, running over. I have to give it if I want it back and withholding it is me punishing the other person and I have no right.
  23. Drink smoothies to stay regular plus they’re filled with vitamins and nutrients.
  24. You can’t minister in the midst of the storm. You gotta go through the healing and do the work before you share your story. And the beauty is in the story, how you made it through the valley but what’s the point in telling it if it’s not complete? How can you preach when you’re still going through it? The hurt and the confusion will come out and you’ll do more harm than good. Take that time to pray and grow stronger in faith.
  25. The goal is to get rich so I can get a driver. Car payments are a scam.
  26. I know a lot but I don’t know everything. And that’s okay.
  27. Forgive. Forget. Move on. That doesn’t mean you have to let them back in your life especially if they haven’t healed or taken the time to recognize their role and toxic behavior. Protect your peace.
  28. Learn as much as you can but do what works best for you. Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean you should.
  29. Just go to the gym. You’ll feel better after.
  30. Finish that thing you started. The only way it can get published or sold is if it’s finished.
  31. God got me.
