It’s Thursday morning and I am soooo happy to be talking to you all! It’s been about 2 and a half weeks!!! I pray that you all find yourself happy and in good health!
I’ve been out of town for almost a week, visiting family, celebrating birthdays, and taking a little time to promote the book. It’s been a little busy, but it’s time to get back. Let’s go over a few updates though first:
* the book will be out August 14th (as with anything in life, sometimes the best made plans fall through. We have been working diligently to get the book published and printed. I have faith that this time, this date is accurate.)
*the book signing for Clarksville is August 27th, I’ll be sure to attach the flyer!
*this isn’t an update or anything new, but you all are awesome!
Okay! So… have you ever lost something and you can’t find it anywhere. You will literally tear up a room looking for it, only to find it in the most obvious place? You feel deep feelings of frustration, and then… relief…
That’s how I kind of feel about finding our purpose. Sometimes, oftentimes, we overlook the obvious. Our talents, our skills, are ingrained in us and it’s our job to figure it out. Is it always easy? No, hence the frustration(lol) but that shouldn’t deter us either… I was asked during an interview, what made me realize I wanted to write. I really wish I would have had some deep philosophical answer, but really, it was the only thing left I had to offer.
Or sometimes, we don’t think ourselves worthy of the promise…
It took me months to think of myself as a writer! In the book, the first actually piece “In or Out of Touch” was written in February 2015. I didn’t even consider myself a poet then, let alone a writer or a blogger. Then there was a piece in May, where I thought maybe I could be writer. Then in July when I actually began believing that this could be real… There are individuals who will look at us and say the most encouraging things, who will acknowledge the greatness within us… but if we can’t believe it for ourselves then how can we ever leave the starting blocks?
So fam, if you’ve felt like you’re purpose was too far, it’s not! I repeat, it’s not! You first have to seek it out, then when you find it… YOU have to believe it!
My plane is landing now sooo… I pray you all have a lovely day and an incredible weekend. I love you all and I leave you with this…
Psalms 23:1-6 NLT
The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
