In 2016 my world crashed when a disabling depression set in and living became overwhelming. I had a wake up call not long after and I knew that if I didn’t get up and get moving & take charge of my health, both physically, mentally and spiritually that I just may not make it through this. It was a change in my mindset I had to start with. And so started my journey back to health & wellness; one day at a time.
Fast forward 5 years to 2022, I have found myself in a completely new world. I am no longer a wife, but a single mother to three amazing sons, 20, 18 and 17. Life has a way of changing throughout the years and just as a tree must change every season so do we. Old leaves and branches must die off so that “new” ones can come to life and in 2021 many leaves had to fall off and only those branches rooted in the tree of life had could manifest themselves. Another life moment happened in 2021 when I turned 50. I always knew the last several years that something significant would happen in my 50th year but I had NO idea it was going to be as impacting as it was.
Now, almost a year later of being separated after 21 years of marriage, I am growing day by day into the woman of God I was called to be. The honest truth which is where I believe God is calling us to be, as truth tellers, is where I am compelled to start writing. We all have our “beginning” just like the bible and well, my posts are going to be the honest, raw, pages of my story.
Am l still on my journey of “Being my Best”, heck yeah!, in fact making the decisions I had to make this past year in 2021 was all a part of becoming my best. If you are looking for the raw truth and reality of life, you know?, those you can relate to and need some inspiration, hope in times of darkness and a little laughter in between, then you have come to the right place.
My prayer is that women will find their hope and confidence through the saving grace of Jesus Christ first. Without God, there is no hope, thats the bottom line, thats the truth. When we completely and whole heartedly surrender our lives to God, there is nothing we cannot do and you will watch your darkness turn to light and the wells of living waters will spring up within you. I promise.
