When One Chapter Ends

…another begins.  Yes, I know, very cliche.  But it’s so on point with what I’m going through right now.

If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as regularly as I have in the past.  Well, there are tons of reasons.   The two most important ones are: 1. I sometimes suffer from writer’s block, and 2. Sometimes, I don’t have the time. 

Probably the MAIN reason I haven’t been writing is because of what I’m going through personally.  I recently found out that a very significant component of my life is about to come to an end.  I knew it was going to happen; I just didn’t realize it would be this soon.  I’m trying not to let it get to me, but sometimes it’s hard.  And I’m used to being the strong one and the one who has it all together.  Well, sometimes I’m not so strong, and I don’t always have it together. 

This chapter that is ending is bittersweet.  But I know things always happen for a reason, and I will survive this setback.  And as my former Bishop has said, “A setback is a set-up for a comeback!”  Yes, I know, slight corny :), but the message is clear.  I can’t let this unfortunate news devastate me.  I can’t stop being me.  And I can’t stop my hustle.  Because something better than what I had before is on the horizon.

That’s what I want to leave you all with today.  No matter what’s going on in your life, you will get through this storm.  It won’t last forever, so don’t let it defeat you.  Know that something better and greater is on the next page.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.
