It’s been a few days and so much has happened over the past week, it is just settling in this overacting brain of mine.
Saturday, November 18th, 2017 we had The Raleigh Literacy Expo. It was an event I had the pleasure of organizing, on behalf of AAALAC , The African American Author Literacy Awareness Campaign. This organization is dedicated to bringing awareness to African American Authors around the world. It was a great event.
I was also the keynote speaker of this event and through the holy spirit I was given a push backed by courage. I finally had the courage, the strength to disclose my illness publicly. If it had not been for the inspiration I received in that room full of amazing talents and gifts, amazing people, I may not have received that blessing. It was truly a blessing to speak my truth in a setting outside the mental health sector. It was a moment, an opportunity to touch someone’s life in a positive nature. It was that event that assured me I was doing as God willed of me. It was a vision He had shown me long ago and I didn’t quite understand until now. He showed me what my life was going to be like. I didn’t know when or if it would really happen. It did. I was me.
My spirit was on an all-time high being apart of this event. My physical body on the other hand felt quite differently. The pain was unbearable to me, but God comforted me the duration of preparation and the execution of it in it’s entirety. Despite all the challenges I face day to day, I experienced a very joyous moment. My parents and my sister were present. My family.
Fast forward, Thanksgiving was relaxing. I popped in the day after I believe. I mentioned cooking a little something and most of the night was spent on video chat with my daughter. We spent the holiday with thousands of miles between us but were as close as close to be.
Now I am wondering what do you guys think of this here blog thread. I see I have a few new followers and that’s always nice. Glad you all could stop by. I would really appreciate if you could share it. There may be someone who needs to know they are not alone. The daily struggles of us all takes it toll at some point. I am living to demonstrate how life can lead you past it. To practice living a life devoted to God and you of course. My message of hope may not be needed or welcomed by many and it’s fine. I ask that you make it bigger than you and share or pass it along. I have learned that I can ask and it’s ok if some may not choose to share any of my posts. I aim to please God these days. That’s it for now.
As always thanks for reading and sharing this as these are the days of my life and what I’ve learned along the way. Living with a chronic illness.
