It’s been a long time since I have written anything. I’ve been thinking for a while that I want to start writing again. I’m not exactly sure where to start though.
I probably haven’t written anything on here for at least a year and a half, so the issue is not knowing what to write, it’s not knowing what subject to lead with.
I guess I’ll start from the “beginning”. After living in Brooklyn, New York for about seven months. I had to move back to Oakland, California with my mom and family due to my stepfather becoming extremely sick.
I can remember the night I had to pack up and move like it was just yesterday. It was February 4, 2013, my mom called me around 6 PM after I had got off work and informed me that my stepfather was extremely ill. She told me that I needed to get on a flight and come home because she didn’t know if he would make it through the night. With not much time to gather my thoughts I packed up as much as I could to take on the overnight flight back to Oakland. Fortunately and by the grace of God my stepfather did survive over a month after I moved back home. I am so thankful that God blessed me with that time to spend with him before he passed on March 10th of 2013.
It’s funny how I never thought I would see myself living back in Oakland after I graduated high school. But it seems as though my life has come full circle and I am right back where I started from. I must say when ever I thought about moving back home with my family I always thought it would be because of something negative happened. Although it was very unfortunate that my stepfather did pass away. God has shown me that everything happens for reason and he has placed me where I needed to be.
Since I’ve been back home I have landed a great job where i can build a career and found the new love of my life. I have been blessed to find love and build a great relationship with my boyfriend and my new family.
Be Beautiful. Be Blessed.
God is Everything.
