A Different View

via Daily Prompt: Relocate

Naturally our minds go to our place of dwelling and which state or country we live in, but I’d like to offer A Different View…..

After devoting so much time, love, energy and resources to a particular cause and people for 10+ years, it has taken every fiber of my being to RELOCATE my love and dedication. Eyes now WIDE open I came to realize that my efforts and sacrifices were under appreciated and the time had come to move on and disconnect myself from “unprosperous” ties….. Easier said than done. However, I can now say that this Relocation of my love, energy and devotion has been the BEST decision of my life!


What is this thing we call LIFE?

I know I can’t possibly be the first person to question this……

In my 35 yrs, LIFE has taught me so much….  The things I grew up fantasizing about, I quickly learned were NOT reality! Seriously, WHY the HELL do we allow our children to grow  up with such warped views of this world?? Little girls taught to believe that being “Beautiful” and  finding their “Prince Charming” define their very existence, to our young men never really having the proper model of a MAN before them. Our boys have failed to reach mental, let alone emotional maturity, and the two come together to create dysfunctional generation after generation……

But THIS, this is just the basis of our epic failure….. As I’ve grown I’ve often wondered WHY, why after experiencing life’s joys, sorrows, achievements, disappointments for yourself haven’t we as a people shared MORE with the upcoming generations? How many broken homes could’ve been spared, how many businesses could’ve thrived, marriages been sustained, ministries been successful, children not have been aborted, addicts never touch a drug……If ONLY we could truly be TRANSPARENT with one another, UnAShaMED of failures as much as our successes.

I’ve NOT arrived, but age and gradual maturity are teaching me daily… My goal in life is to Love ME and Love the Process I endure. I share my story, the good, bad, and ugly in hopes that maybe ONE might attempt to do things differently, successfully, wisely…..

NEVER be ashamed of who you are and from where you’ve come….. There is PURPOSE in your Process….
