The words that keep repeating in my head are "Things will never be the same" and boy if that ain't the truth. Every moment of our lives is designed to be completely different even if the slightest change is unrecognizable or the moment is insignificant in our ignorance to stay blinded by the fact that we are truly living in a gift of borrowed time that will someday end. Life is but a whisper and the more I am alive the more precious my life becomes. To see my children grow, times change, and witness people coming and going out of my life are just a few ways to witness the change in its most transformative way. I believe accepting change, embracing evolution, and provoking growth and transformation is vital to human survival. As I am approaching a posture of radical transformation, I am finally fearfully and courageous and ready to accept my assignment. There are places I have not wanted to go out of fear of what others may think of me or the things I may have to give up in exchange for better. It's crazy how sometimes we are so afraid to put down what we are used to, forgetting that; that thing was once new too. There is so much more to life that we have still yet to experience. In the next few months God willing I will be here to witness a new place and point in my life as I have just turned 48. I definitely have been enjoying my 40s, as they have been stabilizing and sobering in a way where life has a whole new meaning. As I am pouring out my heart to you, the bottom line is that life will never be the same. After you finish reading this you may allow your mind to gaze, as you stare out your window, and glance at a spouse or child, every still moment lets us remember this gift of life we are blessed with. What are you going to do with the life you have left? What difference will you make? Is there forgiveness you need to give, or peace you need to allow to flow through? What changes do you need to surrender to allow your next to be better than the latter? I know what I have to do and I'm ready to handle the get-down. As We approach a new season, a new version of us is required. If we are to be successful at living our lives without regrets, then it's time to get really serious about it. Family, things will never be the same and I don't want to miss a single minute of my next, so I'm preparing for a new season. how about you? About 4 months ago I began a challenge that I was working so hard at completing when suddenly without warning my sister died and left me to raise her 2 youngest children. I already had the baby since birth 6 years ago and now I have his sister too. I wasn't preparing to be a mom again, I was preparing to work on my mind, body, and spirit, but God had a different plan for me.
Change is inevitable. Life is changing, as we can't have it without constant construction. Things Will Never be the same...and I am going to keep moving forward, trusting God every step of the way.
