What book are you (1)You’re reading a book. It’s a good one. A page turner. You don’t want to put it down. When you do, you go to bed thinking about it. The plot makes it’s way into your dreams. Once you do finish reading it, you feel like there’s a void. You want to keep the story going.

You’re reading a book, it has lulls. It starts off kind of slow and the plot gets a little stagnant. You’re hoping it picks up. It’s really easy to put it down and move on to other things.

I’ve found that life can be a mixture of these two books. Sometimes it moves so fast with so many good things happening. When life as it is- is just good. You don’t want it to change. You want to keep that feeling going. At some point, we all hit that lull and get a bit stagnant.

We can all get caught up in the low points and not feel like pulling ourselves out is possible. It’s easy to believe that this is it and that’s the way things are going to be. Remember that you have a say in this. In order to appreciate that rainbow we’ve got to make our way through some storms. Cliche, yes. True, absolutely.

  1. I like to take matters into my own hands. I strongly believe that we make our own destiny, so why not take the bull by the horns so to speak.

  2. I want my next chapter to start with more enthusiasm. Just a few more weeks until my body’s recovered from a fall and I can use all the energy that’s been storing up the last 5 weeks. What an awesome post, Camesha! Thanks very much for motivating me to plan.

  6. “When writing the story of your life, makes sure you’re the one holding the pen”. These are words to live by! This post really resonates with me because there have been times I’ve been resigned to accept things in my life as if but as I’ve grown I’ve learned to take more control and have a say in my destiny. Thank you for this encouraging post! #BLMGirl
