I haven’t read a book in years. My master’s degree turned me off reading and then Lou’s death and becoming a single parent sent reading way down the priority list.
Picking up a single book has enlightened me. So many messages that resonate and have given me courage. Being forced to become aware of my issues is a blessing. Pushing me to look at what needs to be addressed.
I need to use any resentment positively to fire up my ambitions, using the anger in a positive way, letting go of my pride to undo anger.
If I can focus on love instead of seeking love then my fears will be replaced with trust.
My overarching goal is to move from grief to pride, then to courage and acceptance and eventually peace.
