Whew! October flew by me and November is blazing through quickly. I’ve been having a range of things going on at the moment. For example, I’ve been enlisted to help proofread an article that will debut very soon and give my Starrah touch to it. Also I recorded a Promo Commercial for my friend’s Restaurant “Simply Irresistible Restaurant & Catering.” I’m proud of their success and am willing to lend my help to a great brand. Next month will mark my car, Kim’s 9th Birthday. She’s a 94’ Toyota Corolla! I’ve been extremely BLESSED to have had my car for this long period of time. I remember when I got it as a Christmas gift my freshman year of college. I didn’t start driving it until that summer.
There I was a young 19 year old, working, and taking care of my first car. I recently took it to the shop to get some back brake work done and a wheel alignment. My friends always ask me if I still have the same car and without hesitation I say, “YES I DO.” I’ve survived wrecks, snow storms, heavy rains, sunny days, & gorgeous nights. I remember at 16 when I was interested in driving I’d always see my God Mom driving this blue car and I said to myself, “I want that car one day.” Who knew I’d have it 3 years later, the power of speaking your life into existence. Mind you I never told anyone that I wanted that car. It feels GOOD to know that hard work never goes unnoticed. It doesn’t matter how WEALTHY I am, Kim is gonna be with me until she decides it’s time for us to part ways. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to stay consistent and keep the important things in my life consistent too.
So many people feel like if they get this new car they’d be happier. What they don’t see is that new car is a temporary fix. They can have a million cars and still not be satisfied. For me I’m good with longevity and classic pieces: Friends, Family, & Books. These are timeless in my life and somehow make me feel complete when I need them most. If we could all reflect on the few TIMELESS pieces we’ve collected. Maybe then Starrahs will we find what truly keeps our engines going?
Starrahs, what are the THREE things you can’t live without? Share your thoughts….
Alive & Well,
