Throughout these stages of our lives, we adjust, we learn and we embrace the journey to define who we are as Women in the context or our individual worlds. As I reflect back over the years, the choices I’ve made that have etched my story to this day, I am thankful to God for his mercy and grace for my life .
It takes courage to pick yourself up from the storms of life, feeling battered and bruised, yet finding the strength within to get back up and push through. If there is something I discovered along my life’s journey that has helped me and continues to help me, it is acknowledging God has given us the gift of “freedom to choose,” the pathway we forge towards our future.
We have the power to change the direction of our lives by the choices we make. It takes courage for change, but we have what it takes within to achieve the changes we need to better our lives. We do this all the time, adjusting, adapting, embracing and becoming.
Enjoy your life’s journey while you are alive. Don’t hold back. Dream big, and run into those dreams with your eyes wide open. Leave a legacy that echoes a life well lived, and those left behind will be encouraged and empowered to dream bigger.
