Yesterday I hit a wall. Unaware that my guard was down due to pure exhaustion, I felt that there was some bad force, grandma called it the devil, trying to destroy my strength and my focus. I’ve always been taught that once a person decides to follow good, to give their soul to God, to humble themselves to do the will of God, then life (although fulfilling beyond comprehension) gets more difficult. I absolutely love these reminders, these road blocks, because it keeps us from a very dangerous place while life is happening and plans are being made, a dangerous place I call complacency. If you have ever stood at a pond where the water is stagnant you will notice that the water is neither moving or changing, and because there is no movement, it breeds some pretty icky stuff. Not to mention its a place where the dreaded mosquitos will feed on your skin like it was the last supper!
Thank you to those who love me and listen to me as I talk my way through my frustrations, my “support” team that help me see what is really happening when my soul is disturbed. Solidified by my soul sister Sandy and my soul mate Ray, that because I am diligently fighting to better the human condition where I can, doing my small part for the beautiful people in Cambodia, the forces that thrive on oppression, poverty, hunger and slavery are, well…pissed off at me! Anyone who knows me, knows what I have to say to that. Tuff shit!.
Here’s the deal, every one of us have the capacity to create change at some level. Your contribution is very unique and individual – make change WHERE you are or make change where you are GOING, but make change. We cannot remain complacent in relationships, our work, homes, our health, etc, because make no mistake, change WILL happen.
As I take this moment to empower myself to be very clear on this mission, I say to the evil forces trying to knock me down “dude I didn’t choose this path to fight the fight of human trafficking, it chose me, so you can bet your ass I’m giving all I have to do the battle with God at my side!” And even if I don’t see the battles won in MY lifetime, my hope and my passion is that my grandchildren will see it in theirs!
