This moment really took my breath away. When I was 11yrs old my stepfather molested me on the way to and from this agency. When we arrived they were closed so I never made it inside as child. It was the worst car ride of my life.
But it’s funny how this second chance was presented to me.
I was at work when I was invited to a comedy show by this guy. He handed me his card and suggested that I should come out to his comedy show.
As I glanced at it, I noticed it had the name” William-Reynolds Agency” on the bottom line of this business card. I couldn’t believe it. I just assumed that this business would be closed after all these years.
Once I found out they were still open I promised myself that I would finally make it inside. I just wanted to be step inside just for a minute as I was suppose to do that morning years ago.
So on June 5, 2015 I walked in the door of the agency FREELY. I was completely overwhelmed as I just stood there in the middle of the floor. A young woman named Mrs. J. Jackson greeting me with “How may I help you?” I replied” I just want to stand here.” I’m trying so hard to keep from crying. She then replied without hestitation” I will stand with you then” as she wrapped her arms around. I cried and cried. I couldn’t hold it anymore. Because I finally made it in.
Thank you for allowing me to see and live in today. I feel the joy of this day already in my heart. I believe you have great things in store for me.
I request out loud my silent prayers for a healthier temple while living the full-time entrepreneur life. I am out growing my corporate job as you already know from my moans and groans. I am grateful for the experience of the valuable skills plus the steady paycheck. I have grown and learned a lot.
Thank you for keeping the desires of my heart alive so I may live in them before they are fully revealed to me. I will continue to work with a faithful heart in preparation for the next big move.
I surrender to your Will today Lord. I accept the need to prepare for the plan you have for me with no complaints. I will stay focused, grateful and faithfully.
Have you ever really took the time to sit with your emotions? Do you know what your happy feels like and when you are living in it the most? If your answer is no, let’s see what we can do about that right now:)
I have learned that emotions have a life as well. They can control you negatively or positively based on the decision you make after the feeling is executed. It’s all up to you.
For me I have started becoming more aware of how I really feel due to me active involvement in daily journaling. Journaling is so much more than just writing.
But that’s another blog for another day 🙂
Today I would like to discuss how you rate your happy. Do you wait for someone to let you know if your happy or do you control your own happiness? Yes, No or maybe:)
Here is a mini journaling assignment I do to remind myself to live in the moment with my emotions right now.
Here is a sample of my journaling assignment for today:
I am happiest when my heart feels….
The lesson I gained from today’s assignment is that paying attention to my heart determines how I show up in my today.
I challenge you to do yourself a favor tonight and complete this assignment. Let me know if it was helpful for you as well.
So until next time…Remember you are alive to live!!
Let the worries of the day force you to win today. Temporary concerns will shift your focus in order for you to be present in this teachable moment. Take away the good, leave the bad and keep moving forward.
