The Story never ENDS

It just takes on another turn that begins a new chapter.

A new mystery that has yet to unfold.

Endings never really end.

Everything stays connected.

A thin fine line or a sturdy rope.

Either way, one story flows to the next.

You might as well embrace the journey.

Find joy in the challenges and discoveries.

They are all part of the lesson plan.

In life, that is.

For when the story does come to an end…

So shall a new plot emerge for yet another great book to be written.

Gratitude has once again opened a door for me.

I understand now the reason for the battle I had fought so hard for.

The pain that crippled my soul.

Thank you for giving me the strength to overcome adversity.

It’s invigorating to breathe with a smile.

I have grown wiser moving forward.

May I be given chance after chance to keep making things better.

Just in Time

To celebrate Thanksgiving.


I am grateful for my new beginning.


It’s the kind of work that may not be perfect on the outside but as long as the inside has a heart, I know I will thrive and emerge a fulfilled individual.


At my age, it’s not so much about the money, rather, it’s doing something meaningful and purposeful.


Prestige comes from accomplishment not wealth.  Recognition comes from hard earned work and dedication not power tripping.


I have nothing to prove at this point except for the gratitude and goodness I wish to continue paying forward.


Anonymity comes from the weak and threatened fearful.  I dare say, stand up and face truth with decency!


For every finger pointed at another person, three are pointed back at you.  For every judgement hurled maliciously hurts you more than anyone else.


I made it in the nick of time!  Thank you God for this wonderful path I am ready to walk.


This time with pride and dignity, not shame and fear.

On Role Models...

She was edifying!

The manner in which she spoke defined the meaning precisely, to edify.

I could see her aura from across the table.

It’s was glowing bright and clear.


I knew I was in the right place.

A new beginning with a chance to top up on divine purpose.

It’s just a matter of time.

When you are spoken to with clarity, you know where you stand.


No need for materialistic impressions.

A genuine soul with a purposeful life seeks deeper.

Her tone of voice left an imprint, not a scar.

In quiet contemplation, the value of a soul's journey has again been realized.
