At peace:

Photo by PNW Production on

I’ve been going through a lot lately. I’m still on the job hunt, what happened to my son, and just trying to be okay with not being okay. I had a long good ugly cry. I just let it all out and I felt so much better. I can’t keep stressing over things. I just have to let some things go. I don’t want to always be full of stress. I have to let go and let God. I can only control what I can control. I can’t make people hire me and I can’t make people treat my children with respect. I have to just pray about it and leave it in God’s hands. I’m at peace though and that’s a good thing. It’s been a while since I have been at peace.

  1. Awesome! πŸ‘πŸΌ Shit happens Colleen, and it’s how you deal with it that matters. I felt and still sometimes feel the same way that you are feeling. But like you said, let go and let God. Too many things are above our pay-grade. πŸ€‘ You will survive this and much more. We learn, and perhaps by removing your hands from the things that you try to protect and control, will allow “others” to grow.

    You see, have seen, and will still see so much that we truly wish we could change if we had a magic wand. But we can’t. Yes we pray, and we let God work in His perfect timing. It is your nature and ours to worry about literally everything, like injustice, inequality, and every other thing in our crockpot of worriation. Soooo, you got your UGLY cry out, now you’re ready to replace it with your PRETTY smile! πŸ˜ŽπŸ’πŸ˜Š OK, so no, you can’t make someone hire you, so do what you can do this day! OK? πŸ˜‰

    Now, about that manuscript????? 😲

  2. I’m happy you are able to find peace, as a mother that can be a challenge in itself. Even when everything else seems to be going well , if our kids are not, it tends to take a toll on us. I too have had to trust in put it in the hands of the Lord. Blessings to you Queen!

      1. Exactly why I’m not angered by many unfortunate events like during homelessness. God took me through that leading me to finally find my purpose. I met people I wouldn’t have normally & was presented w/ opportunities I most likely would not have encountered.
