Happy New Year!

Ok, I know that it’s a little late but, hey, better late than never. Yesterday I felt the urge to get on and start blogging. It’s been almost  a year since my last blog post and well January 16th was apparently the day I was going to get things going again.

And since I had this urge, I felt compelled to research what the number 16 meant.  And whether or not what I came across is the truth — it felt accurate.

“In order to understand the meaning of number 16, you have to know what numbers 1 and 6 mean (Well technically it means I had a baby cause Ryan’s birthday is 1/6 — IJS). These numbers are the components of angel number 16 and they can have a big influence on the meaning of this number.  Number 1 is considered to be a symbol of authority (I do like to be in control of things), self-expression (definitely no problem telling people how I feel) and positive thoughts” (I love encouraging and motivating others).

“This number also indicates that a new phase in your life is about to begin (yup, can’t wait to share), so it is time to leave your old habits in the past (If that means sleeping in late, using the toilet by myself and not having to duck behind the kitchen counter so I can eat an ice cream sandwich in peace then, dearly beloved, we are gathered here today …). 

“Number 6 is used as a symbol of domesticity and balance (definitely can improve in these areas — Cooking and Work Out 101 please). It has to do with your home and family, so if you see this number frequently, it could mean that you should spend more time with your loved ones” (Most definitely. No job or money is worth missing out on time spent with your family. Life is so short. But that is why it is so important that I create a space that allows me more time and flexibility with my son. He is growing up so fast.)

“Taking the meanings of numbers 1 and 6 into account, we can say that number 16 can mean that you should take an authority not only at your job (I kinda already do that), but also at your home (my husband knows who’s really in charge. Hehehe. Hey boo).  It is also important to maintain balance in all areas of your life.   (Is there really such a thing? For me, scheduling is going to really help me out in this area. There will be areas that receive more attention but at least I will be making an effort to make sure I do other things I enjoy.)

There is also an interesting fact that will help you understand the spiritual meaning of number 16 much better.  … the sum of numbers 1 and 6 is 7 and 7 is known as a highly spiritual number. All this is leading to a conclusion that number 16 will help you find your spiritual path and be more devoted to your spiritual life” (I WILL find a church home this year).

“Angel Number 16 is a reminder from your angels that your thoughts create your reality, therefore ensure that you hold only positive expectations about your life, lifestyle and material issues. Trust that all of your needs will be met as you live your life mission.”

I am living proof of living in expectancy and believing in God’s will for my life. All of my needs have and continue to be met because I trust the process God is leading me through. And that doesn’t mean the process doesn’t get hard. Woo chile. But those challenges only build strength, tenacity and wisdom.

A successful decade plus modeling career in New York City that I started at 33 years old.  Married at 42. First baby at 44!! I didn’t wait on those things, I lived my life in expectation of those things. And, they all came when God knew I was ready to wholly receive them. Are you ready?

I don’t think there’s any coincidence that I started blogging again yesterday. This all feels very on point and a reminder of the what the year ahead will bring.

Let’s believe and receive y’all!

Stay tuned.
