My mind is always moving. It keeps thinking about the things that have happened, the things that are happening, and the things that I want to happen. I know that God has a plan for me. I know that He has called me to touch others through my words. That is a gift that He has bestowed upon me and I understand. There was a statement that Whoopi Goldberg made in Sister Act 2…She said that if you wake up and all you can think about is writing then you are a writer. Another movie states that you have to go through some things before you can become a true writer. I have experienced both.
I understand that I am in control of many of my trials and tribulations because I made the choices that got me there. I know that in those situations, my reaction has and will have an impact on the outcome. I could not write to inspire others if I allowed everything that I have been through to bring me down. I could not be who I am called to be if I did not allow those things that God said He would handle to be handled by Him and to trust that He would do it.
I have not lived an easy life, but I am living. I have thrived despite what I have been going through. I can write in a way that others can understand and empathize with because I have a real view of life and a positive disposition. I’m thankful to have survived it all and to be able to share. I am growing and I am happy. I want to inspire others to pursue their dreams and answer the call that is on their life. I encourage you to be who you were created to be. In addition, I want people to see the good more than they see the bad, to feel the joy more than they feel the pain, and to know love more than they know heartache. The gift that is settled within…stir it up and allow it to be experienced by others for their good.
