One must always take care of one’s responsibilities to self, to one’s family, and to one’s community
The past year has taught me much about patience, faith, and diligence. I have truly understood the meaning behind faith without works is dead. Though trying at times, my experiences have given me a new outlook on life.
I’ve regained and strengthened my faith and have refocused my thoughts and efforts. My goals have always been the same but they are a bit more clear and I have placed more importance on seeing through the course of action laid to assure those goals become a living reality.
I have taken care of myself, my mind, my heart, my spirit, and I’m taking care of everything else that resides outside of my body–education, finances, relationships, etc.
God maintains his/her presence in my life and continues to keep me protected. I am very grateful for that. I am constantly reminded of the many blessings that have been given to me and I will continue to mind my attitude towards the negative things in life.
I’ve come a long way from being broken, hopeless, angry, depressed, and faithless. am proud of myself.
Though I know I have a lot more to endure and experience and also that this road is much longer, I have faith hat everything will happen as it should and I know I must continue to take care of my dreams. They are what keep me motivated, inspired, and happy.
