“For Me, In Life, There Is Never A Dull Moment. Only Teachable Moments.  It is within these moments, that I learn that “Nothing Lasts Forever, but Gods Love.”  This is also where I allow these moments to instruct me, to give me the necessary tools that I need, in order that I may gain clear understanding as to why this situation is happening to me, so it doesn’t happen again.

I have Learned Not Be Afraid of Trials And Tribulations; because, They are the mechanisms, that are to Be Used in my life, as Teachers, and or as Guides, to address any unforeseen events that may occur in my life that are not pleasant. I Have Learned To Keep Moving Forward and Upward In My Life, No Matter How sad the situation may be and how Much It May Hurt. For I realize that it is within these dark times of life’s struggles that I grow closer to God and that I can acquire the needed wisdom, confidence, gratitude, awareness, strength, knowledge and experience, to combat an unwelcoming life event.  All that I refer to as Life’s Magnificent Tools.

As I have learned to consistently embrace, acquire and combine these tools in my life, for I have realized that they can certainly Sharpen my Entire Perspective On What Needs To Be Learned and What Needs To Change In my Life and Then how best to Employ Them With An Open Mind, Which Can Result, In Knowing, Just How Wonderful Life Really Is.”
