Faith is putting all your eggs in God’s basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch.

Maya Angelou said it best…“When people show you who they are, believe them”. Let’s not allow fiction to disappoint us again, believe the facts good people.

I received this book titled: No Regrets: 101 Fabulous Things to Do Before You’re Too Old, Married, or Pregnant! By Sarah Ivens as a birthday gift and decided to thumb the pages last nite.  Was I in for a treat?  As I near 30, I found this book to be refreshing, informative, & a  very pleasant read.

In Sarah Ivens’s “No Regrets,”  she dishes up 101 things you should experience before you’re too old, married or pregnant. In the introduction, Ivens says that soon after turning 30, she had an Oh Shit! moment — where am I going, what have I done, what have I missed out on?

“What I regret now are the chances not taken,” she writes. “I look back and resent the time I wasted on faux friends, or office gossip, or working for cruel bosses.”

As I turned the pages, I was pleasantly surprised that most of them I’ve never thought of doing but will now consider. But there were a few things I thought were right on point and should be mandatory for all women. And since I’ve done every last one of them I thought I should share it with my virtual fam( SEE the list below ).

Life is about living so even if you are not getting old, getting married or getting pregnant, you should be enjoying life every step of the way. Embrace your fabulousness and live with no regrets!! Enjoy!
