This year I have been very intentional about focusing on taking care of myself. I constantly give so much of my time to other things, that I had to sit down and realize I have to make time to pour back into myself. Without me doing things for me, I will not be able to give of myself the same way in those other areas of my life.
Things that help to fill me back up consists of praying, writing, and taking time to unplug from the world, including social media. This year has felt really different from any other. This year we have been faced with seeing a virus take over the world, police brutality and two legends make their exit to heavenly paradise. Some of us have lost family members from the coronavirus. It’s been rough. I hope that you are taking care of yourself. I hope that somewhere in between all the chaos you are finding a place of peace.
I am at peace these days. Is peace an easy place to always reside in? No. But when you make the effort to intentionally protect your inner space then it becomes a lot easier. Chapter 30 of my life has shown me the resiliency I’m truly made of. It has taught me the essence of protecting my peace. Life is not a fairytale, however when you make time for God, and time for yourself, He will restore your energy and peace.
Rest In Heavenly Paradise,
Kobe Bryant, Chadwick Boseman, the African Americans who we have lost to police brutality and the coronavirus victims
