What if you could fast forward to the end
And see that every tear, every failure, every disappointment
Was all worth it?
Would you believe that each twist and turn
Yields a lesson to be learned?
Would you believe that every set back
Is merely a stepping stone?
If you saw all that has to take place
Would you keep on keeping on?
Along the good path.
Would you believe that your bad
Is working for your good?
Even though at first you misunderstood
That the lessons were blessings.
Would you believe that life is an exciting adventure
Designed to assist your soul in evolution?
Or would you trust in the silence of the foreseen revolution?
Do you believe that the adversity and tragedy
Are all necessary
Elements for your character and spiritual development?
Would you believe that you can indeed
Fast forward by picturing in your mind
Your deepest desires and create all that is required
For your contentment in this human experience?
Well, you can! You can!
Stop and envision yourself making better decisions
And you living the life that you seek right now!
Be prepared to go on a ride!
Enjoy every moment with as many smiles,
Take in every breath,
Delight in each step
Towards your destiny
As you write your story.
Painting titled “Journey”
I see the Light
Is it a possibility
That I’ve been put in this situation
To humble me?
Or could it be
That I’ve been placed in this position
To have the opportunity to listen
To the voice of Spirit
So that I may see clearer,
Get more in tune with who I am,
Develop into a better woman, and
Build tenacity and resiliency
All resulting in a higher version of me?
Painting titled “Growth”
Finding my Wings
These fears are not mine
These thoughts do not belong to me
I miss days in the womb
When Spirit and will were in harmony
These fears are not my own
Intangibles that hinder me from trying
Deep down I know
I have the potential to be flying
Therefore I shall rise
And exceed my expectations
I cannot allow fear to stand in the way of
Me reaching greatness
Once mad at the things that lead to my depression
Little did I know that further caused mental oppression
As I cannot hate those very things
That shaped me and lead me to be
Who I am today
A heart full of rage
And fear does not serve me anymore
I have to forgive to heal
So that I may live
From a place of love
Love is the only thing that’s real
Painting titled “Forgiveness”
All For Good
As I felt desperation
In the isolation
Of the pieces of my journey
Unaware of the divinity
In connecting all the pieces
That were most suitable for learning
Each experience was building me
Preparing me to succeed
After the desperation that lead
To my frustration
I came to the realization
That I was being built
And not broken
Painting titled “Trust the Process”
When a new building is being built to replace an old building, the construction team has to tear down the old one. After tearing down the old building, the debris must be cleared up and the foundation has to be restored before the process to build the new building can even begin. Then comes the lengthy process of building the new structure based on the floor plans and complexity of the design. As a new version of me was emerging, all of the old had to be torn down first. I had to let go of fear, move on from the past, change old habits, forgive myself, and forgive others. That process has been messy and has been happening gradually over some time now. As my process continues, I am being restored and built from the ground up. I want you to know too to trust your process. You may not have all of the answers today or tomorrow. Just know that everything that you’re going through has purpose. You too have the power to turn your pain into power, frustration into faith, and sorrow into solutions.
