Btw it is really pretty outside and it has been just an overall good day. I am happy to know that GOD KNOWS. and He has his angels watching over me! God knows who to put in your life and out of your life:)

Hopefully this is what I will be able to see this weekend (fingers crossed)

God knows.

it is amazing how God surprises you with little blessings
while you sit and ponder by second guessing
He wants you to know that its really not that deep
He is right over your shoulder even watching over as you sleep
so be grateful for everything He does
and remember it's never what it was
watch as the seasons change and the wind blows
and be thankful because God knows.

He understands your hurt and pain
and will be there even after the rain
to reassure and to give you comfort and love
for He is the one that is watching from above
so be grateful for everything He does
and remember it's never what it was
watch as the seasons change and the wind blows
and be thankful because God knows.

Lord i thank you for your mercy and grace
i can only pray to see that great place
for it's the reason for living
and will be the beginning to a never ending
so i am grateful for everything You do
for i know You are Your word and it remains true
i see the seasons change as the wind blows
and im forever thankful because God knows.

stay STRONG!

After Graduation

Hello you guys...I am at work thinking as usual...I have decided to write my plans down for here they go:

  • Find a job within my field from a recordable company (Fortune 500 Company possibly)
  • Work for 2-3 years
  • Open a savings account for grad school, the GMAT, apartment, and other expenses


  • Apply to Graduate School right out of undergrad perferably to University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX
  • Get a regular job on the side (can be minimum wage)- save money in time span for expenses


  • Apply to recieve my Teacher's Certificate
  • Substitue teach for a while and work my way up

I am content with all three plans, and I want to accomplish them all but I just dont know in which order I would like to accomplish them. They are however listed according to priority levels. I will already have a car because my parents are getting that for me as a graduation present, so thankfully I will be mobile and able to get around to whatever opportunity comes my way. I of course want to come back home because that is just the place where I am most sane, comfortable, and just overall Houston is a place of familarity and has great opportunities as far as entry level positions.

I am apart of the Scholar's Program here at Wilberforce, and I was granted the opportunity to speak with a young lady that has recieved her MBA (my goal) and she basically just told me to look for a job first and worry about grad school later because experience of course over powers everything. Yes I am intelligent enough to go straight to grad but it is in my best interest to find a job first and work my way from there because that is simply my issue. I have the GPA, recommendations, and I am pretty sure if I study hard for the GMAT I will do well but I just dont have enough creditable experience and I just refuse to come to another school like Wilberforce to recieve my Master's (I need something Ivy League). But neways I havent really spoke to God sincerely that much about this situation in recent time because I have simply drained the situation out but this just came to mind to me today so I am hoping this is Him speaking to me because it feels right.

Well I will definitely keep you guys updated and informed on opportunities that are going to come my way (I claim that in the name of Jesus!!!)

i may have found peace in between the storm

hey everyone!

yes i am not sure of the future or what it holds but i cannt forget Who holds my hand and Who has been here with me from the very beginning...

by and by God is showing and telling me to not worry about what will go on in the future but just live in this wonderful moment and be proud that in a little over a month i will be a college graduate magna cum laude....

that in itself is a blessing....i am no longer going to worry about what is going to come...

i am keeping faith that whatever it is it will definitely be for my good because i know He only wants what is best for me....

so whatever you are going through in life right just know that it is none of your business, just walk meaning that you should just live life and in the moment to the best of your ability and let God handle the rest....JUST LIVE!

hey everyone!!!!

i just want to let everyone know that i appreciate you following me and reading my blog. i know i have been slacking like really majorly but it seems lately i have nothing interesting or worth posting because i like to keep it positive. but all in all i love you guys for being inspiring to me.

right now i am simply exhausted with school, people, and just overall life.

i feel a little empty because i am at that point in life where i really don't know exactly whats next and nothing has been shown to me. i just feel like i am just living in a moment with nothing to aspire to. i find myself second guessing alot and i am just at a place of uncertainty. i do not like this feeling at all.

i was reading OH MY GOSH!'s blog today and she was saying that you need to just be patient and everything will work out in God's time. i know this is true but i know that maybe i am not doing what i need to do to the highest potential. i am sick of rejection. the more rejection i get the more harder it feels to keep trying and going.

grad school is a possibility but i need a break from school. i know that i am capable of getting my Master's but mentally my mind needs to relax and figure out my passions and what i really want to do professionally because i simply have no clue. i think if i go to grad school i need to surely know what i want to do. some possible options are health care administration and education. i love helping people, great listener, enjoy the arts, love writing and sharing ideas, etc. so i need something that will fulfill those needs.

people tell me constantly what they feel is best for me and yes i listen and take it in consideration. i appreciate that because that lets me know that there are people out here that want to see me prosper and succeed but i am just looking for the fight to want it for myself. i need a sign.

i just had to vent a little....

Young Heart.

this is exactly how i am feeling right now. sometimes we just need that little reminder. confusion is not an easy thing to deal with esp. when the pressure seems to linger at every corner. learning who you are, accepting it, and lastly loving it can take a lifetime but you must have your own starting point. there is no need to focus on others and waste your energy on those you will never please. there is no need to be sad and mope around like the world is against you. rejoice and be glad for life and love wherever it comes from.

the hardest thing to deal with is inside of your mind. i battle daily with the negative comments to being indecisive. not knowing what is next is something that i am learning to let go of and to just simply live in this precious time and moment. God, i believe, wants us to be worry free and does not work in a woeful environment. He wouldn't be God in that was the case.

so...i think i will enjoy this young heart while i still have the chance....

BTW i took my grad pics (they came out pretty...they will be coming soon) and is getting ready to graduate MAY 1ST!!!!!!! i can not wait!!! STAY TUNED!

-xoxo, Dominique
