I love Steve Jobs. He was an unmatched Entrepreneur. I saw a quote from him this morning and shared it to my Letitgocoach Facebook page. It reminded me why I do what I do. Encouraging people on the daily is what I love to do. In person or virtually, I want to give you hope. It was 3 short years ago that I felt alone and hopeless, so I have learned a thing or two. This month alone has been a major growth and learning experience, so it’s time to write.
This month was nothing like I planned. It was supposed to be a month of reflection and meditation to prepare for the upcoming year. My Mama passed away a couple of weeks ago and even though it was an answered prayer, I wasn’t ready. She had been living with Dementia for several years and the family was at a breaking point with care. My sister and I put our hearts together and prayed. Two days later Mama didn’t wake up. God moves swiftly in my life.
I walked through my house into the kitchen and noticed the window fogged up which told me it was cold outside. My calendar was stuck on 15, and at first glance it looked like December 2015. A closer look made me realize that was the last day I had been in my home. “My ways are not your ways”, say the Lord. You would think I’d get this by now.
This is the first Blog I’ve posted since the 13th. I’ve been reading, watching and trying to assimilate what God is doing in my life. God knows my heart and has taken what I laid my hand to, and turned it into His. At first I was a little disappointed in myself for not reaching my goal, but now I see God is giving me more than I ever hoped for going into next year!
Do what you love and love what you do. That is the extent of my plan, and the rest is God’s.
