It's been a long time since I have posted any blogs. So much life has happened. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I would even blog again. As I was going through some tough life situations (which I will be blogging about soon), I felt like I was no longer adequate or qualified to share my insights with people. I felt like since I ended up in compromising situations, it must mean I wasn't fit to help people. For a moment, I let my dark places silence me. I'm sure I am not the only one who has gone through something similar. Have you ever asked yourself, who I am? What makes me capable to help them? What can I do? I struggled for months with these questions. Fortunately, destiny kept gently knocking. It kept probing. It kept asking, where are you, we need you. It kept whispering my value in my ear. It wouldn't let me give up. As I started vocalizing what I was going through I realized there were countless others who were going through the same thing. By speaking up, I was able to reach a host of people I may not have interacted with otherwise. I was able to use my dark places as a testimony and actually encouraged people to get out of theirs. What I thought disqualified me, actually thrust me into a position of qualification that was greater than before. I had an old friend call me recently and she said, I know it wasn't easy for you but you never know what you are going through for someone else. It was at that moment that I realized I couldn't be quiet any longer. I couldn't let guilt and shame keep me down. My worth isn't measured by what I go through. I am greater than what happened to me. I am worth more than any trial or tribulation. I realized my place and I realized my power. I encourage all of you to keep pushing forward. Don't let life stop you from walking in your purpose. There are people out there who are waiting for you to speak up. There are people who need you more now than ever before. It is inevitable that you will go through some tests and trials. But what matters is how you respond after. I no longer wear shades of shame. I see clearly that my purpose is greater than my storm. My storm was just a catalyst that catapulted me into destiny. Now I walk in my purpose, to the greatest of my current understanding. I won't let anyone or anything take my voice again. I realize that it's bigger than me and I am humbled that I am chosen to be able to help others on their journey. It's time for you too to speak up, destiny is calling! #Overcomer #Destiny #Purpose
