Sometimes you go through things that leave you cried out and feeling as if your prayers aren’t being answered. Well I’m here to tell you that in those times when you think God is silent, those are the times he’s speaking the loudest. He’s speaking whispers into your heart so because he’s not speaking the way you want doesn’t meant he’s silent. How can I prove it to you? Just listen to your heartbeat. It’s speaking his love to you with every beat ♥️
2 1/2 years ago I started pursuing a long-time aspiration of writing a book. Quietly. Secretly. Refusing to share this exciting news with pretty much anyone.
Big mistake. Big. Huge. 🤦🏻♀️
The decision to remain silent about my desire? Yeah, that led to me shelving my goal altogether. 😬
But not anymore! The dream has been awakened!
I joined a writer’s club and attended my first writer’s conference in Atlanta! My website is currently in production and I’m hustling to build a social media platform! My children’s book has made its way into the hands of several agents and I’m in the process of writing a collection of essays. 📝
I even received my first rejection which makes me feel totally legit!
In an attempt to inch closer toward my goals, I set aside a block of an uninterrupted 4 hours with the hopes of checking some things off the to-do list. ✅
So I pack up my stuff, drive to a coffee shop, carefully select the perfect table to work at (good sunlight, tucked in the corner), unpack my computer, phone, notes, water bottle, and I give that long list the side eye because I own that thing! I am getting all the things done!
Then it happens. My phone rings. It’s my kids’ school. Keira doesn’t feel well.
And I’m reminded why my career as an author was put on the back-burner to begin with. My laptop was turned off. Everything was repacked and I returned back home to mom life.
Tomorrow. Tomorrow I’ll slay.

As a writer or blogger, you don’t always have to put out completely new content every day
or every week. It’s definitely worth it to take a look at your older content as well and make
sure it is still good and up to date. Read about our content recycle strategy in our website
Como escritor o blogger no siempre tienes que tener contenido nuevo todo el tiempo, puedes
revisar material que no usas desde hace tiempo para actualizarlo y mejorarlo. Lee más en nuestro website!

This is so important. Repeat until it resonates. Repeat until you believe this at every conscious & unconscious level.
I can’t stop
to a near future
even more distance
the even more part
scares me the most
I don’t mean to be
I’m really trying
I’ve even been
avoiding the rain
out of my control
it’s just that
and with age
from our youth
and we’re not getting
we’ve been proving
this to be true
for awhile now
I know you
felt us drift apart
but I’m sure
you’ll realize it
later than sooner
all I’m trying
the simple days
when we were
to get here.

I haven’t been feeling well for the past few days. But I promised a local homeless shelter that I would do a book reading and give away free copies of my children’s books. It was a struggle getting out of the house. Feeling a mess + hair a mess. lol But it was all worth it to see those curious faces. To meet all those precious kids. At the end of the book reading, when I gave one girl her copy and signed it - she asked, “Is this my book now?” Yes sweetie, it’s your book and the world is yours too! ❤️❤️❤️
