I'm All the Way Up

"Nothing can stop me, I'm all the way up, I'm all the way up..." I like this song by Fat Joe and Remy Ma minus a few of the lyrics...but I digress. It exudes confidence and the amount of wealth that they have. It paints a picture that they have everything and more(!) that they need in life. They're all the way up!

While I love the confidence that this song portrays, the reality is that what is up must come down. But on the flip side, if you're down, it's only going to get better. You can only go up. I love the verse in Psalm 23:4 that says "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."  David is in the valley. He is in the depths of despair. He is crying out but David realizes that things will get better and that he will be taken care of. 

Maybe someone needs this reminder as much as I do. I wanted to share my thoughts with you all. It will get better. We go through the fire to become tougher and stronger. 

Now in these pictures, I'm on the top of this parking structure thinking how I'm all the way up- up high overlooking the city. I've got a long way to go in my life, just like so many of you, but I'm having fun and being positive while I'm on my way back up. 

Isn't this karinadresses dress the best though? How could I not be happy and positive wearing this? I am in love with the pattern and the comfort of this dress while we've been in the 90 degree weather is awesome! The print is so funky- reminds me of the sixties but I love that this style Penelope  has pockets as well!
