On the way to a meeting with my friend and colleague yesterday, I mentioned to her that I didn’t have any message to share on my birthday. Not that I do not have my own grass to Grace story to share, or that a lot has not happened in my life in the past but I just feel it is really not time to share my story (or maybe I just feel my grass isn’t green enough, yet…LOL). I definitely know that the right time will be very soon. She however told me to let it flow when I start typing and that’s what I am doing….Flowing.
I am 28 today. I am happy today. I am thankful today. I am grateful always.
15 years ago, I told myself that at the age of 28, I would have graduated, with a good job, married with a child and enjoying my beautiful family. But then, life has its own plan for us. Between the ages of 13 and 28, I have lost, I have loved, I have found, I have cried, I have unlearned, I have learned, I have discovered, I have evolved. I am still evolving, inventing and reinventing myself and above all, I have found peace, not as the world gives but the one that comes from faith in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. That type of peace that scares you, sometimes.
Have you ever been too calm, happy and calculated even in the face of trials and tribulations that you begin to wonder if you are normal? That’s where I am and it is an amazing feeling. It only happens when you let go, let God and live! It happens when you live above societal standards. It happens when you decide to ride on the wings of Grace while staying contented and at peace, knowing that His plans for you are always of good and never evil.
My life is not perfect but I am grateful. I am where I am today, not because I planned it but because God planned it and I am just walking in the path which He has created for me in His master plan. Sometimes, I sit and wonder what the next step he has planned is. Everything I am today, I planned none. If life went the way I wanted it, then I should be a Doctor right now. I started blogging without plan but I found my purpose in it. That one purpose has been the evolving substance in my life.
The desire to drive meaningful conversations and content as far as possible in order to touch and shapen lives have taken me to places and positions I never envisaged.
If I keep flowing, I am afraid I will write a book today but that is not the plan. I want to sincerely thank you for being a part of my life today. From blogging, to Social Media Management/Consulting, to Building your websites, to transcribing, to events, to radio, to TV, etc, without you, your support, your kind words, your attention, your adverts, your referrals and believing in my brand and the brands I represent, I won’t be here today. Thank you!!
Sometimes I wonder what I have done to deserve this but then, I realize that instead of wondering, the best I can do or should do, would be putting in my best in making you always proud of Elsie Godwin – This is a given, as one with God never fails.
