I will be at peace when... I seek consolation from the right Source.
Until today, you may have been telling other people things about yourself and your life that you need only share with God.
Just for today, go into your sanctuary for Divine counsel.
Today I am devoted to receiving counseling from the Divine about certain areas of my life!
Iyanla Vanzant, “Until Today!”
Generally, I'm a private person, sharing my life’s details with a small circle of family and friends. Sometimes I have something I want to share that I believe may be too much for them to accept about me. I used to keep THOSE thoughts and ideas to myself but now I’ve learned how to deal with them through my writing. As I’ve said before, I'm not a religious person so I don’t necessarily sit down with God to have a chat. Instead, I'll write a story or an encouraging message to help others. I know I'm not the only one going through the issues I go through so I'm reluctant to commiserate over my foibles as I didn’t like to appear “different” yet that’s what I have and ALWAYS will be: DIFFERENT! When I was born into this world, my mother made sure my given name was different (VERY few L-E-A Leah’s or M-I-S-H-E-L-L Michelle’s out there). Knowing that I wasn’t like other children, I tended to stay isolated with my “weird” thoughts. As I grew older and learned more about the world around me, I discovered that my “weird” thoughts were actually normal but not all people have them. Self-reflection has allowed me to see that the uneasy feeling that envelopes me at times is simply the Truth About Lea that I need to face. I know I am here for a reason. I know writing is part of my purpose. I also know that I have only discovered the tip of the iceberg of what my greatness will become. Guess what World, I hope you are because I'M READY!!!
Until next time
