#SnatchedBy25: T-Minus 3 DAYS!

Between the time I started this countdown and now, it seems like I’ve shifted into a completely different person. My life looks nothing like it did and I’m not quite sure what to make of it except that God is real and miraculous even when we have nothing to give in return. It’s a new year, I started a new job yesterday and in just 72 hours I’ll be 25. As someone who is very into symbolism I’m reeling at the fact that the new chapter I’m starting on the inside is also reflected in my outside world.

Praises. It’s really all I have to say.

With this being the last #snatched post, I’m anxious to share how it went:

This was the inspiration behind the whole movement to begin with. I wanted to snatch my body and figured that maybe it was a good idea to apply this get-it-together-mentally to all aspects of my life. The bummer is that this has been the hardest to do. Per usual, I went through spurts of insane consistency and then Chik-Fil-A every day for a week. I need to work on my in betweens. I lost a few pounds and right now I’ve gained them back and then some. Needless to say, I’m still working on this. In fact, I’m starting a new fitness program this week. TBD on how that goes.


If fitness was a fail, then everything else has been a huge win. Huge. It’s been five months of pure revelation across the board. I’ve figured out my sweet spot for the brand and figured out what I want to do career-wise. I’ve grown emotionally and handled situations with a grace I used to only wish I had. The holidays were the perfect cherry on top for the end of this season. At a networking breakfast the other day, we did an activity where we went around the room and shared the one word that describes our 2018. My word is thrive. In this shift I’ve realized that I’m moving from a season of surviving what comes, to one where I’m dominating and thriving in my circumstances.

The mindset that comes with thriving is one that is totally different from survival mode. Thriving allows you to set the bar higher and sacrifice less of yourself because you’re not desperate or just trying to make it. I don’t have to take what I can get anymore and that feels so good.
