How do I inspire when it’s me that needs to BE inspired.

It’s hard to write when your life is experiencing chaos and turmoil.

It’s hard to write when all you want to do is lay in bed and sleep until your trial is over.

It’s hard to write when what you want to say is too painful to utter.

Yet I know this is not forever.

I know this moment will help me grow into the woman I am supposed to be.

I know that no matter the outcome all is as it should be.

So, I write, I write to heal myself

I write to inspire others.

I write to tell stories of pain and triumphs.

I write to not feel alone.

I write so that you know you are not alone.

I write to bring hope!

No matter where you are in your life’s journey. You are the author.

You are the expert in your life.

Write, write in your highs and in your bitter lows.

You were created to inspire everyone around you.

Live generously every day and…

Just write!


“Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. – 1 Corinthians 13:13 (MSG)

I am a graduate of USC Gould School of Law with a Masters in the Study of Law with a certification in Entertainment Law. I am passionate about the truth. I am a news junkie and love to learn something new — Blogger (writer) for Soul of a I am also the author of "Unpredictable Outcomes - Unmasking my Faith" - My hobbies are reading and singing and dancing...I love to laugh out loud.
