I have grown to understand not everyone will identify with your journey, and that is okay. You will not understand everyone else's journey either. The fact is, our responsibility is to make sense of our own journey.
I trust that the testimony of my journey can be a blessing to you and that you can find encouragement and inspiration in these pages of my life's journey as it relates to me being "single and complete".
As Marlo Thomas said; "I raised you to be a thoroughbred. When thoroughbreds run, they wear blinders to keep their eyes focused straight ahead with no distractions. They hear the crowd, but they don't listen". My heart is to share my story with you because as we share our stories with each other we become stronger and wiser. Sharing our stories is not to be prescriptive to each other because fulfilling destiny is a personal and intimate journey between you and your Source.
