I know you are working hard.

Good morning. Rise and shine like the star you are! It’s hump day, I think. Lol

I have been working hard on several writing projects since my husband passed away, almost three years ago. I didn’t know I would be here today. 

I kept thinking to myself, now what I am supposed to do?  How do I adjust to this single life, because it’s not just about me, I have teenage sons to raise. 

I started writing. I went through a love series, learning to love again and discovered to love myself even more.  

I went through the path of insecurities, learning more things about myself and interpersonal relationships with others. I also went through learning how to stand firm in restoration, and trusting God through the entire process and guess what he delivered. 

Now, I am experiencing victory in vulnerability. Yes, victory knowing that I have that inner love and inner peace and that we will be ok. 

My writing started out mediocre, but I asked for something more. I was seeking guidance to write and share my work on another level. I am still continuing to grow. 

Today, try meditating for 20 minutes and seek the answers you are longing for within. Things will be revealed to you. Good things, honesty, integrity, peace and yes more work to do. 

As you continue your work week, because I know you’re working hard, look beyond time, don’t limit yourself to complete the tasks you so desire, and fear, well that’s where the growth comes; when you face fear and say,  “you know what, I’m trying anyway. ” 

Lastly, push past negativity. Adversity and doubt will always be there lurking in the dark. 

Love you all, finish strong in the Lord.
