Hello beautiful people.
I missed you all. ( a special shout out to Jacob for noticing the change in tone and David for checking in and making it a point to clearly state that you missed my stories) I appreciate everyone that reached out in spirit🤣 and truth,🙃 clearly I must be doing something right😘.
I initially intended to take a two day sabbatical which you would not have noticed, but I ended up catching the flu and fever that came with many other things including a writers block all in this short space of about two weeks.
But am here now and that is what matters.
Two weeks ago I watched all my plans go down the drain. I had carefully for months been planning my big picture take off and just one day to the beginning of something new for me, plans changed. A somewhat harsh reminder to me that things don’t always happen as planned.
I was broken for a moment, so many things all decided to happen on the same day.
However, Over time I have learned to take a step back and listen to the voice of God amidst the chaos. And so I decided to take a break, mostly from the Internet just so I could quiet my mind and allow for peace to flow.
And it paid off, even though my normally strong immune system decided to go on holiday too.
I still remained intentional about the decision to step back and look beyond the negative circumstances surrounding me.
I spoke to My spiritual Father who told me that the Grace of God is able to function in whatever circumstance you may find yourself in, a change in your personal blueprint can not change his vision for you. And if you know God, you know his plans are for us to prosper.
You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.Proverbs 19:21
In this short break , I have learned that sometimes things don’t go according plan.
The easy way out would be to give up ,the champions way is to adapt. And since I am a champion I choose to adapt.
To adapt in this case is to adjust. I realised I could actually work around my situation and still get to the big picture which currently looks like it will take me longer but I trust that God is in control and he sees things I can’t make out right now.
Someone extraordinary said that challenges build character, I believe in the future I will look back and appreciate that all things work together for the good of those that love the lord.( I have come to realise that scripture never makes sense until the testimony is sure)
The bibles says “A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure”
For that reason my peace is restored and with Jesus in my heart I can smile at the storm.🙂
Another overcoming tip is looking back and remembering how far you have come, celebrating the small wins and taking each day at a time. Remember destiny is today and the big picture is overrated. You can’t be crying over failed plans, be encouraged that where there is a will, there is a way.
So the month of May had plans and clearly they have changed. I will keep my promise and still host the guests in regards to creating mental health awareness but will spread them over the coming months. For now something interesting is on the schedule.
The Afro bloggers winter challenge is here and I am actively going to participate.
It’s running through the month of June and so I will be on these streets everyday making beautiful noise.
I am excited and nervous. But regardless we move.💃💃💃💃
Let’s get this party started, June is hours away😇 Tell a friend to tell a friend to tell a friend, the hashtag is #WinterABC2021.
Until shortly then, (I like the feedback keep it coming in the comments section. Don’t forget to like and share)
Be kind, be humble , spread love.
