On December 31, 2019, I posted below on my FaceBook Author Page:
Almost 365 days later, I reflected on this post and how my life has shifted during this strange year, and I couldn't help but be proud of how the words I wrote have manifested in my life.
Surrendering was the best thing I've done...ever.
As my post said: my plan for 2020 was to "surrender myself to God's will for my life" and doing that has allowed me to live through a pandemic without a job and not worry about money. It has given me the chance to work as I've always wanted: as a writer and artist, creating a path that is authentic to who I am without conforming to what people believe about me or think is best.
Surrendering has provided me with opportunities that keep me in awe and keep providing a way forward when I don't think I have any options. It has put people around me who are elevated and who teach me and love me and who I trust are purposed to help me evolve into a better person. And it has graced me with the love of my life—my best friend—becoming the man he's always been to me: my true love.
The moral of my story which I have blogged about throughout 2020 is: Let Go. Surrender. Live in purpose. And live knowing that life is a roller coaster. Even if you can see the curve or the hill—which many times isn't the case—you have no clue what it's going to feel like going down and climbing back up again...
Love, Light, Peace & Blessings to you all...this year, the next and beyond!
P.S. I have so much to share in 2021 and it may look a little different than what you're used to...stay tuned.
