Sometimes I sit and think of all the negative things that have recently come into my life, death, finances, family, no job, homelessness, directly and indirectly, how I’m affected in one way or the other. I try to stay connected spiritually, mentally, and emotionally but it’s seems that I can’t continue to hold on, than I wake and another day has passed.
Another day and another issue, Oh boy! I even think, “is this my purpose”? To learn to stay strong and to perservere through it all, so that I can be a teacher and an example to those that have come after me. Writing this story I realized there isn’t enough room in this article to list the adversities, the hurdles, the storms that I have been through and yet have made it through. That which you speak about you bring about. ( I feel empowered in the face of adversities)
There is a Power much greater than myself keeping me, Some may call it God, and that’s what I choose to call it. So what ever you may be going through as long as you wake up, Thank your Higher Power and repeat everyday you may have to put a little work in but as each day go by you seem to realize how there are less things going on.
My motto “This can not last forever” I get into a solution, Pray and Thank my Higher Power in advance. Yes I’ve made it another day and so can you. So please stay strong keep the faith and believe that there is a Power keeping you what ever you choose to call him/her. We can take much more than we believe.
