Guess who’s bizackkkkk… Lil Ol’ Meeeee… lol
So this has been heavy on my spirits and I wanted to share it with you all this beautiful Monday! I’ve had times I cried myself to sleep at night, asked God why me, been on the edge of what felt like a nervous breakdown and at the end of the day I MADE IT!!! This thing called life isn’t easy for any of us some people just handle things better than others. I’m here to tell you that YOU CAN & WILL MAKE IT THROUGH IF you KEEP GOING!!! Life is a journey… It has ups and downs; peaks and valleys; highs and lows and everything in between. But what I’m learning is that it’s about perspective, your response to life’s blunders and hiccups. Life is about helping others who may be in your shoes make it through. We all are connected we have to help one another! The last 10 years I’ve experienced betrayal, loss of friendships, church hurt, death of My Granny, death of loved ones, a marriage and divorce, disappointment after disappointment, a broken heart–and not romantically, lies, abuse and all kinds of things and I can honestly say some of those things I had no clue how I was going to make it through, but look at me now stronger, wiser and better. I’m different and some parts of me wish I wasn’t because some of those things can cause you to be hardened and guarded and I was so soft and open before and I liked that, but the real world can eat you alive and spit you out so you have to grow some thick skin to survive! Sorry… It’s the sad truth… Anywho, while going through all of this God strategically placed me in so many people’s lives to help and inspire them and I had NO clue. But I get calls, emails, inboxes, DM’s comments monthly on how I’m helping these people whether I know them personally or not. This lives me perplexed, like God how are you using me and I’m a HOT MESS—no like a real HOT MESS. And I believe God chuckles and says you all are but look at how many people you’ve touched–I mean random people out at restaurants– in the middle of your “Hot Mess” just imagine how many you will touch? I say that to say this, share your testimony with people you never know who may need it you may save someone’s life– this one lady I knew said that one time I texted her and she was literally on the brink of commuting suicide–that blew my mind I was literally speechless. I had no idea. BUT God knew and He knew to put us in each other’s lives for that season. I have no idea where God wants me to go but I have faith and trust in Him that it’s exactly where I need to be. I’m an open book, I am who I am and learning to love myself even more daily! God may need you to go through the fire so you can go back and pull someone else through like, “Baby I’ve been there, I understand, you aren’t alone, you can do it, you will do it and you will SURVIVE!” So count it all joy when you go through test and trials! James 1:2-8 New International Version reads “2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faithproduces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God,who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” So go out there and BE YOU, be TRUE to yourself! In life things will happen– it’s inevitable BUT how you respond is life changing! Go and INSPIRE… somebody NEEDS YOU… Your Story, Your Victory, Your Smile!
