During dinner with a close friend, I told her that I could see God answering my prayers. I found new office space; I am moving into a new apartment in the city; I am financially stable, my relationships with my friends and family are stable; I am traveling more and I have a clear plan on how to grow my business. As I was explaining to her how I have endured the storm and the sun has come out, she interrupted me by saying then why aren’t you happy? Verbally, I was saying I was happy but my tone and facial expression said the contrary. I stopped and thought about it. I wasn’t happy. Instead of breathing and enjoying the moment, I found myself holding my breath waiting for the next BUT to happen. (more…)
My college years at Virginia State University (Go Trojans) were the best. I went to clubs, concerts, gym jams, and hung out with friends until the wee hours of the morning. The next day I woke up went to class with no problem (I was a champ!). I left with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology ready to enter the human service field and SAVE the WORLD!!! Boy I was young and naïve. No one told me on most days, instead of saving the world I would be saving myself. I knew that life was full of highs and lows. But I never knew how low the lows were and how difficult it can be getting back up.
I am angry. Those words are not something I say very often. When I do I am sick and tired of being sick and tired, broken, or feel as though I cannot take another step. (more…)
