Before COVID-19, my home care business was finally about to get off the ground. I had worked very hard the last two years trying to get all my certifications in place and started applying for state contracts to hit a wall. COVID-19 hit, and everything came down like dominos pieces. I had to dissolve the business. I wasn’t willing to put people at risk for money. It’s been ten months since this door close on me prematurely.
I am an entrepreneur at heart. My eagerness will not allow me to give up. A window opened and then the door. Now it’s time for me to do what I do best to rise. Being patient is not the easiest thing for me to do, but I am learning to wait.
Do not give up when a door closes. Another one will open up have faith and be patient.
Strength comes from someone invisible.
Strength comes from other people.
Strength comes from deep within yourself.
This incredible strength comes from God.
Strength is when you are at peace with Jehovah, yourself, and others.
Strength comes from acknowledging and accepting the wrong you have done to yourself and others.
Strength comes from forgiving and loving the people who have done you wrong.
Strength comes from loving people who hate you.
Strength is taking someone’s hurtful words and turning them into ashes.
Strength comes from dealing with pain and mental health issues that want to break you, but you don’t allow it.
Strength is fighting head-on with or without assistance.
Strength is knowing regardless of what this world throws at you:
You are loved.
You are kind.
You are smart.
You are beautiful/handsome.
You are wonderful
You are a child of God!!!!
Strength comes from Perseverance.
Always remember your strength comes from God. Anytime you start to feel like you don’t have the strength; All you need to do is just pray and leave it in God’s hands. ©Painbug 2020
To know me is to love me unconditionally. To love me unconditionally; is to accept all my imperfections, my weird mind, my different personalities, my mood swings, my mental illness, and my physical disabilities without judgment. To know me is to be close to me and be able to share our opinions openly. To know me is to be that person who will check me when I am wrong, but won’t hold it against me. To know me is to understand I am trying to find myself spiritually and won’t participate in certain things, but you are still cool with that. To know me is to know when we have a problem with each other we can talk it out. To know me is to know when I tell you I love you; I mean it from the bottom of my heart. To know me is to know when I am mad I will talk crap and then drop it. To know me is to know I do not hold grudges, anger, or bitterness in my heart. To know me is to know I am a person who is very selective of the company I keep. ©Painbug 2020
I can love you with every ounce in my body and kill every ounce of myself.
I can praise you with beautiful words and destroy myself with one word.
I can help shape you into the person you should become at the same time I can crush the person I am.
I can support you in every way and abandon myself.
I can be your fan and my worst critic.
I will not allow anyone to hurt you but will turn around and destroy every inch of myself.
I can love myself more while you quietly fade away.
I can learn to put me first and place you in the background.
I can be the loudest person in the room while shutting you down.
I can excel and thrive while you fall and fail.
I can be myself, and at the same time, I can allow you to show up and show out.
I can be many shades in the dark and in the light. I can fulfill many roles; it just depends on the day and mood.
I can learn to accept the things I can not change and let go of the things I can.
I am comfortable in my skin. I am a work in progress!!!!
