Blogger Recognition Award

I’m giddy right now. : ) I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by “seekingyoufirst.com” a blog geared toward creating a community where women of all ages, backgrounds, experiences can connect and encourage one another. Thank you for the nomination! I am so thankful we were able to connect over the blogosphere. I wish you continued success as you build your cafe. : )

Here are the rules:

Rule 1: Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

Rule 2: Provide a link to the award creator.

Rule 3: Attach the award to your post.

Rule 4: Nominate fifteen other bloggers, excluding yourself and the person who nominated you.

Rule 5: Write a brief story of how you started your blog.

Rule 6: A piece or two of advice to new bloggers.

Rule 7: Comment on the blogs you have named here to let them know you have nominated them.

How it began:

I was supposed to create a blog years ago, but allowed fear and uncertainty to delay. Last January I finally wrote my first post, published it. However, I told no one and since no one knew about it, nobody read it. September came along with a strong urge to write a dating post. I wrote it, posted it to my Facebook page and the rest is history.

Advice to New Bloggers:

My advice to new bloggers is you get back what you put out. If you want others to appreciate your work, you must appreciate the work of others. Write about what you are passionate about and do not be afraid to be true to your own unique voice.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet many incredible bloggers on here.

Neglect Not Today

I wrote this post for "The Journey Unveiled" blog in 2012. It is mind-blowing how life has changed since then! Everything I was waiting for when I wrote this has come to fruition. Yet, the message still resonates with me even today.

Neglect Not Today

by Ebby Lane

My stomach curled in knots when Destiny asked me to blog about something I’m learning in my journey. My mind went bananas because there is just so much. Should I write about struggles I’ve endured lately? I have received wisdom about keeping certain things sacred? Or maybe I should write about how God is pushing me to take more chances and not be driven by possible failure (failure is a state my mind). Ugg, the endless possibilities. However, all of these lessons are gradually changing my attitude toward life.

The most weighted lesson is God teaching me to NOT NEGLECT TODAY

I’ll be 27 this year; I can choose to dwell on the empty ring finger that WAS NOT apart of my five-year plan, the empty nest, my wall devoid of the degree I was supposed to obtain three years ago OR I can choose today.

Why waste today depressed over something that hasn’t happened, YET?

Also, I’m a master of the five-year plan every year lol. I’m obsessed with knowing what will happen next and normally, I’m without fail. However, lately, my intuition is shielded.  The curveballs are abundant to the point I’ve seized attempting to decipher them, which was God’s plan all along. He is teaching me to trust Him with the unknown, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen” (2 Corinthians 4:18). It’s a challenge.

Nonetheless, everyone has something to be thankful for RIGHT NOW.

When I forget, I remind myself to reflect on the prayers God answered. In addition, remember six months ago, I was not where I am today. In fact, I was praying to be here.

Living for today is easier said than done, but it’s not about perfection.

Sigh.

May we strive to unveil the beauty in between the reflections of yesterday and the dream come trues of tomorrow.

Reblog: Identity Theft

As a Christian, it is easy to struggle with identity and being set apart. Here is a great piece about identity and not allowing anything outside of God to define you.

I remember those awkward years in Junior High. Not having a clue who I was or the way I was supposed to act. My hair wasn’t pretty or long enough, my clothes weren’t name brand and my nose was too big. I would never make a difference in the world. As you can probably tell my junior high years were the most grueling years of my life. Well my hair is still not long, my nose is still the same, but at least I do have some name brand clothes. Lol

The identity crisis continued through my early adult years. Even as an adult I still found myself searching. I would love to tell you that once I came to know Jesus as my Savior the mystery was solved. But that wouldn’t be the truth. It actually became more difficult. Why? Well because now I was a threat to the…
