New Hope, new beginnings that's what happens. A commencement is just as much a new beginning as it is an ending.
I have been blogging about events for over three years that separated me and my little one. I have also been writing a book as I have been working through my situation reading Shaken by Tim Tebow.
I have heard so many people try to coerce me and others into doing what they (you) believe is right without using means of communication like e-mail, telephone and USPS mail. It is because of this I am going to ask that you please respect my family. My son, his dad, my ministry and my business and please do not speak about what has happened to us or what you would like me or someone else to do. There are so many voices that are trying to control the outcome of the situation that it's like an actual channel. This channel has provided me an opportunity to see how difficult it is for not just me but for everybody.
I am returning to public speaking and I am focused on commencement talks because of a need to support one another in our country with what is happening. PTSD Post traumatic stress disorder is so prevalent in one another and so is depression and anxiety. Each of us knows what is right for us and we discover our truth in the reflection of others. Please use this time to focus inward on you. When I have my book finished, I will share it with you and I will show you how I am coping with the terrorism that impacted my son and me.
A shift occurred today when at the new hope church in town, it is that I have known all along, I can focus on the Trail of Tears that brought me hear or ask God for a new beginning. The new beginning is here. It's finding my way back to who I am after being impacted by a business crime. I was hypnotized and I did not give consent and I share this for the last time before I speak about the healing that continues to occur. I know that my heart has been hurt, but not shut down. Many people around us are struggling and each positive word that we speak, each exercise that we do, each time we take time to help one another we are helping the whole.
I am so grateful to have found another new community where there is no judgement. When you find where you belong, you know it. Love will not be defeated. I hope you will silence the on-going conversation about our identity restoration until we are able to speak in person, over the telephone or via mail. This has been a very difficult experience for all of us, but the outcome can be great.
Making the most of our life on earth includes surrounding ourselves with positive energy, positive relationships, places and when we are striving to maintain at our best, that's often when our "enemies" will try to destroy us. John 10:10
