Fast Forward and Rewind


When I first laid on my bed back in 2011 and started writing as I processed my Nana’s passing, I didn’t know I was writing a book.

Yet as I wrote and processed my emotions, I distinctly remember writing that as I watched my Nana at the end of her life, I realized that I needed to fast forward to the end of my life and ask myself, ‘how can I come to the end of my life and be at peace and at ease within?’ Then I rewinded back to the present and told myself that what I do today matters. I can either take steps to get closer to that goal of experiencing more peace within, or take steps that are further from it. I chose to take steps towards it and then last year happened, and as I met the edge, I did have a peace within...yet after treatments ended I had trouble planning for the future. 

Today I am ready to plan ahead once again, personally and professionally🙏

To know what I need to do today, I also need to know where I am heading. Therefore, I am looking ahead to where I want to be and am then rewinding to today and basing my choices today with that end goal in mind.

I share this with you in case you too are unsure of your next steps in this new season. I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

May we fast forward and ask ourselves “what is our end goal?” (It may be personally or professionally, or both!) Then may we work backwards from there to see the steps we need to make today, to move one step closer towards our goal.

We may make our plans, but may we always be sure we allow God to direct our steps.

With love and hope,
