Sometimes life has a way of humbling you.
The greatest person in the world can become the least in a matter of a second.
There is a reason they say you can be as high as the top of the mountain and as low as the deepest valley.
If it’s one thing that this year has taught me, it’s that you can go from having it all, to having nothing.
When you are at the high times in your life, it is so easy to forget to be thankful for the smallest things like waking up, having food on your table, clothes on your back and a place to call home.
You don’t always appreciate how precious those things are until you lose them all.
When you’re at your lowest in life, it forces you to be humble. It makes you see all those things that you took for granted.
This year I could look at my life and say that I lost it all. But I chose to believe that I didn’t lose anything, but rather I purged my soul.
This year all the things that held me back for so long. All the things that caused me pain or that didn’t align with my purpose, were literally purged from my life.
Sure, I lost a lot of material things too, but they were all part of the Purge as well. Sometimes when God is trying to take you to new and better places, he needs you to leave everything from the past behind.
Sometimes it seems like things are being taken from us but it’s God saying “let it go I have something better in store for you.”
This year was one of the hardest years that I have had in my entire adult life.
Even though I cried so many tears this year in 2019, those tears are watering my new ground for 2020.
I have no resolutions for the new year, except to live my life and take things day by day.
For too long I have stressed over tomorrow and let precious time go by today.
This year was definitely a rememorable one for me. I lost a lot but I gained a lot of clarity.
I know for sure that it was a turning point in my life.
I’m on a different path in life now for sure and there’s no turning back.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow and what 2020 will bring if I’m blessed enough to see it.
But to sum up this year it was…
The Purge of 2019!!
