This won’t be a stretch for those of you who know me well. For my new friends, well let’s just say, my path is never directed by man.
Last year I went on a self proclaimed “Happiness Journey.” I rid myself of the things that were weighing me down, and did some serious soul searching. I had my hair in dreadlocks to symbolize that I was “locking” into my happiness. Let me tell you, I was tested, tested, and tested some more.
My son’s issues became harder to deal with, I lost 10% my income at work and I was already missing about 30% from just 3-years ago. I have been plagued with financial drama and almost had a complete mental breakdown, but I stayed committed to my journey.
Then, a few weeks ago while in prayer, I heard deep in my spirit, “The journey is not over, but the struggle is.”
Get your shout on for a second, I’ll let you……..
The moment I let that sink in, I became calm and peaceful over the things I’ve been struggling with. I have some things in the works that will help both me and Manchild. I took a moonlighting gig to help with my money issues, I am now free to help someone else who may be struggling today.
Don’t get me wrong, I am working on some “stuff” right now, but I haven’t felt this free about it in years! So, I made a decision–between the WORD I received and the hot flashes working me out–to release the locs. I have a new do ya’ll and it’s sassy, happy and full of life!
Today, I encourage you to make a bold move in your life. No, you don’t have to cut or even loc your hair, but something that will perpetuate positive change in your world. The journey never ends, but you don’t have to struggle. Trust!
Thank you for those of you who supported me through that portion of my journey, especially Glennisha. I Love My Loctian!
Therefore don’t throw away your boldness, which has a great reward.
