Chapter 42

My story is filled with broken pieces, terrible choices and very ugly truths. But it's also filled with a major comeback, peace in my soul and a grace that saved my life. I find victory not by figures in a bank account but by the volume of my laughter, pride in my children's eyes and the sheer magnitude of strength that looks back at me from my own reflection.

This month I turn 42 and this year, much has changed. A lot HAD to change. The company I keep, the places I go, how my idle time is spent...yes, there has been change. So you shouldn't expect out of me what I once embodied in the past. That part of me no longer exists. And for those who truly know me; you can see it in my eyes, feel it in my touch and hear it in my tone.  

It took a minute, but I realize that God closes doors because it's time to move forward. And He knew I wouldn't budge unless the circumstances forced me. He knew that I'd become complacent and "settled" in places and positions that allowed my true calling to become dull and untouched. My talent, my time, my drive, my hopes and dreams were being wasted with each day that passed me by.

So for my birthday, I'm gifting myself "some time" to take care of the things that I've pushed aside for far too long. My goal is to create a life that I don't need a vacation from. To create a space full of peace and serenity, happiness and rainbows! LOL

Give me a moment to "find me". A moment to travel a little, explore the land. To start my garden, finish publishing my children's books, to fall in love with my TRUE self. To take a mental and physical break from life's unnecessary pressures. It'll be a moment, it'll take a minute, but I promise I won't be gone long!

Cheers to starting over people. Have a blessed & fantastic summer!
