Press Through

I haven’t blogged in a really long time and with all of the things happening in the US, there’s plenty to talk about. I have so many things to share, but I will keep it simple and focus on what’s been pressing at my heart.

I spent time with a really good friend of mine this weekend and we were talking about life, faith, family and community. She said something that really resonated with me…she said, “we need to turn our pain into purpose”. She’s right! With all the crime, racial and political division, depression, poverty etc. it is easy to get caught up in the hype of it all. We’re so focused on the presidential campaign that we’re forgetting people are still without basic needs, food, shelter, clothing.

This has been a really emotional year for me. With all of the many challenges I’ve faced this year such as; someone breaking into my home and struggling to replace the things that were stolen from my family. My eleven year old is now too afraid to sleep in his room or live in the house. The good thing is we live in a rental and the lease will be up next month. It’s been hard to pull up in front of a house that was vandalized and call it home. I wanted to break my lease and run away I felt so violated but, I had to press through and encourage my son when I needed someone to encourage me. Some of the people at work were shocked when I told them about the robbery because I kept smiling and coming in to work. You have to press through the bad days in order to get to the good days.

We all have something that we’re struggling with. We must move forward and redirect our focus from our pain and turn into something purposeful. Participate in a cause or group that shares your same life mission. Help others to overcome their fears and challenges. Start a group or a club with other like minded people. Do whatever it takes to start feeling better about life. Someone needs to know your story because it will give them hope and empower them to be free.

The Power Of Women

How many people really know that March is Women’s history month? I’m sure very few people do. I can honestly say that until recently I knew very little about it.  With that being said, women should be celebrated! We have contributed a lot to the world. Some would even  say we are world changers. We are often placed in a category as the side kick and not the hero. I understand we were birth from the rib of a man, but you have to really think about all the women in your life and think about how confident and inspiring they are.

Fear Not…

It feels as though I have heard every famous quote ever written about fear. Such as the famous quote written by our 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt ” The only thing we have to fear is fear it self.” But, yet I have found that a lot of us live in fear. We are so afraid to fell in our career choices, relationships, business endeavors etc. that our lives are unfulfilled and we  feel stuck. The fear becomes so familiar and so comfortable that before long we look up and realize that there are so many things that we haven’t accomplished and  we ask our self  “Is it to late?” It is never to late to chase after your dreams. Everyday you should set up new goals for yourself to accomplish each day. Start small and and every week increase the level of difficulty of each goal. Go hard for yourself!  God desires us to live in abundance.
