Discover Your Confidence

Cracked Mirror, Clear Reflection: Shatter an Illusion of Perfection is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Target!

My story was already written in time. I just needed to trust. Years of doubt suddenly drifted away as I climbed the staircase with ease.

With only two floors left to climb, I was nearing the catwalk. The higher I climbed, the more I could see. With every step forward, the past drifted further and further away from me.

Negativity followed me through the lighthouse. Positivity met me at the top. While I had encountered many obstacles in my life, I was blessed beyond measure.

Although I had felt alone, I was never on my own. God had been by my side every step of the way. Twists and turns had made the road bumpy. Life’s challenges had made my journey difficult. There was a reason for everything, and nothing would go to waste.

Hope for Tomorrow

At the start of a new year, the tendency is to reflect on where we are compared to where we thought we would be. Perhaps we made a list, and it’s time to assess how well we did. Maybe we've had the same mental list for years, and it never went further than our thoughts. Whatever the case, the start of the new year gives us another chance to try. If life throws a curveball, handle it with grace. Adapt and adjust. Always stay in the game. Don't let today's challenge steal tomorrow's vision. Hold on to hope.
