I had a sweet lady email me who has been through a hard season in her life. She lost her mother and her husband in a relatively short amount of time. After taking a year to grieve, she is ready to re-enter the work force and go after her dreams of having her own interior design business. She wanted to know how to market herself. I don't consider myself an expert by any means, and am not sure that I am in any position to be giving advice when there are so many unanswered questions as to what direction my own life is going.
What I did tell her was this:
Have faith and never lose hope. Life without hope is not living at all.
Believing in your abilities is the first step in accomplishing your dreams. Stay the course.
God doesn't allow us to experience pain in our lives for no reason. Although, we may not understand his reasons while we are going through it, trust that he has a better plan for you. Through your trials he is shaping you to help others, be stronger and grow emotionally.
On a lighter note, that photo is of my lovely daughter who went apple picking with her friend on Sunday. I came home from work to fresh baked Apple Crisp. Another reason to celebrate the new season!
What is your best advice for going after your dreams and creating the life you long to live?
