Knowing Your Destiny


You are no stranger to your destiny.  It knew you when you didn't know yourself.  One of the main things I remember about myself growing up is, I stayed angry so much.  Besides all the things I experienced as a child that contributed to that emotion, I managed to walk in my destiny, even as a child, and didn't know it.  Until recent.  I always wanted to be a writer as a side gig (that's what I use to tell my granddaddy). 
Nursing was my first dream.  I have been in the Health Industry for 27 years.  I promised myself that once I got 25 - 30 years in, I would begin something else.  I did not realize I was doing it until I met some wonderful people via Social media (which is another blog). 
I always wrote mostly out of anger as a child.  Mainly because, children just was not going to tell a gown up how they felt with the emotion they were feeling during that time.  It was considered disrespectful.  So I wrote.  I would always start my letters or poems with, DEAR GOD.  Tell Him everything I was feeling, why I felt that way, and what I thought He needed to do about it (mostly telling Him how to punish whoever made me mad).  But by the end of my writing, the anger I felt expressing it to God, lifted.  I felt better.  I was no longer angry with whoever made me mad.  I no longer wanted God to punish them for how they made me feel.  After that, I would always throw those letters/poems away and start writing new ones.  These expressed the joy and love I felt inside when the anger was lifted.  Oftentimes, I never knew what to write for an assignment when the teachers in school wanted us to do a paper/poem.  I always went to my stash of letters and poems, rearrange a few things, and submit it.  Sometimes I would write a story about the ones I through away, rearranging some of that material as well.  I always got an A.  I now understand how writing was in the plan.  I never thought it would be through social media.  I figured it would be through some publisher (this is so much easier).

Have you always known what you were destined to do?  Have you seen your dreams unfold?  Are you walking in your destiny now?

  1. OMG! I used to write to God all the time to release my emotions. It is powerful to let things go.

  2. It is very powerful. It's where most of my passion is channeled. One of the quotes I normally recite to people is: the place where you are greatly afflicted, is the place God can use you the most ~ ElegantGranny

  3. One of my destinantions I have come to learn the hard way is that I was destind to be a Free Person. I am a free thinker and ambious. no matter how hard I try I could not fit in with others at work, not because of not knowing what I was doing, but because the spirit I have and others did not fit or feel correct together. I have found peace and freedom working on my business and sub-contracting.

    1. Frank, I am so glad you were able to find peace and be who you really are. It makes the life you live a lot easier. So many of us struggle with that and attempt to do things the way others do, or want us to do. This causes so many negative things. Not just for you, but for others around you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
