Your identity was created and formed by the Creator of the Universe. Let no one tell you otherwise. You have purpose. Yes, you evolve with life experiences. You grow for the better, not for worse. A different season may require a different version of you but never lose your essence.
Personally, when I moved to Jacksonville and starting a new chapter in law school, I promised myself to not be swept away. I wanted to still be Bianca..but a better version. I did not want my faith in God to waiver, lose my morals and values, and lose my personality. God fearfully and wonderfully made me genuine and set apart. I am still Bianca but I am a better version not a different version.
So I encourage you to change, grow, and thrive as a better version of you. You are wanted and you are strategically placed on the Earth for a reason. Never lose who you are.
It started with many people saying I have encouraging words to uplift and my positivity is refreshing…but one person told me you should blog… “I would read your thoughts and words of encouragement.”
So on an August afternoon turned into asking general vague questions on Facebook about me starting a blog, researching the pros/cons and nuances of blogging, seeking advice from my circle. After contemplating, I answered the call.
Now a name…after word searches, asking people, and throwing out names…and a day to mull over my decision, Blissfully Bianca was born.
In this year as a blogger, I have seen my words have power. I have connected with beautiful people from around the country and around the world. I am still learning as I go but the best is yet to come. My year as a blogger has not been solitary but a great community of friends.
Thank you all for viewing, liking, commenting, giving me feedback, and giving me a platform. Love you all!!
She unfurled her sails.
She is not afraid, maybe anxious.
But, she is excited though.
After years of calm seas and stormy seas, she sees land.
She has reached her destination.
Two Words: Ashley Graham.
I grew up watching America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway. I adore the fashion world. My dream is to walk and buy things from Rodeo Drive (LA) and Fashion Ave, (NYC), to attend Fashion Week, and meet Tim Gunn (Project Runway) in NYC or anywhere.
Society likes to tell women how to look and how to be like. It’s like you have be size of a lollipop stick to be beautiful. I believe every person on Earth is fearfully and wonderfully made. God made us different for a reason. Your body is a beautiful temple because God said so.
Ashley Graham is a beautiful model…period. She is confident and chooses to embrace the skin she is in. I encourage you with her story and her words of encouragement.
You are stronger than you think.
The valley may seem impossible to climb.
But you have managed to keep climbing.
People may seem in awe but you knew the struggle it took.
Know that God gives unfathomable courage and strength.
With God all things are possible.
The valley you climb gets higher until you reach the top
You are on the top looking at the view.
What seemed impossible is possible.
You grow from soil of impossibility.
You breathe a sight of relief.
You have a heart of thankfulness.
You are stronger than you think.
Great, inspirational words from CNN International news anchor, Zain Asher. Ya’ll the struggle is real but believe in your abilities. Yes, you will bumble and struggle but never give up on what you want. Work hard for what you want. Your circumstances do not define you. AND fun fact: her brother is actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Google Him). Some encouragement to give you life!!
The wind blows a breeze.
The chimes begin to ring, slowly and lightly.
Though the sound seems faint, it still rings.
The wind blows a stronger wind.
The chimes ring faster and louder.
The jangle of the chimes creates unapologetic ripples.
The chimes are not afraid.
She is not who she used to be.
Her voice resonates the room, the home, and the world.
Her jangle is not noise but a voice.
