A lot of you may not have known, or maybe you have and just pretended as if you didn't....but after 19 years and 6 months of marriage, I am suddenly divorced. Well, I guess I shouldn't say "suddenly" as the signs had been visible for at least the past 4 years, but that's another topic for another day. So what happens next?? Now, I could either wallow in self-pity and consider myself a failure, or I could embrace this stage of my life and not let it affect me negatively, and LIVE! I choose to LIVE!!! I choose to live my life on my own terms, and what I feel that GOD has purposed for me to do and accomplish. I choose to not let anyone convince me that I should believe a certain way, or wear my hair a certain way, or decorate my new apartment a certain way. I am going to just be me. This blog is a result of me embracing what I feel my purpose is for this particular season of my life.
If you paid attention when you first landed on my home page...you see the copyright listed as 2014. I started this website in 2014, but I just didn't know what I was supposed to do with it. I've always wanted to blog, but didn't think I had anything new or exciting to share. There are plenty of people who have been blogging successfully for years...am I too late? In this YouTube and Live Streaming world that we live in, would anyone even take the time to read what I had to say? I don't have the answers to all of this, but all I can do is trust God and know that there is a purpose behind this launch.
So what am I going to blog about? Well, I'm so glad you asked!! The answer is quite simple...ME!! This is uncharted territory for me because I'm a very private person, and I don't let my life play out on social media. But I KNOW that this is what I'm supposed to be doing right now. The peace that came over me when I finally decided to tackle this was overwhelming. I was excited, and anxious to get home and get started. This all came flooding to me while on a drive from dropping my youngest son off to spend the weekend with his father. Because of our custody agreement, I would now have plenty of free time, and I don't want to get myself into any trouble because I still have to maintain my integrity. This is my new baby! I created it, so I have to nurture it and protect it and feed it. I will be feeding it with stories and anecdotes that may make you laugh, cry, scream, or pray. Don't worry, names will be changed to protect the innocent....and the guilty! LOL!!
