GET UP! Blog

How am I supposed to feel after a loss? That is the question that I continue to ask myself. Some days I feel like I am drowning and other days I feel like I am soaring high. There are days when I am sad, but then there are days that I am glad. I really wanted to have my baby, but on the other end it is so much going on in my life that I really didn’t need to be pregnant. Or did this happen to free me from my own fear of stepping out and being Great? Did this happen so that I could be free and not bounded by other people’s expectations? Did this happen so that I could die and then live again in freedom with God? There are so many questions and feelings. I know that I am not alone in these feelings. I know that there are women who have been right here were I am more than 7 times. When I think of the number 7, I think of it is the ending of something and 8 brings new beginnings. Everyone doesn’t believe in numbers, but you do believe in what God says, right? He’s a promise keeper and I know that he didn’t bring me here just to leave me. I know that his glory is coming from this. I woke up this morning and I felt alive, I felt like I could conquer the world. Decided that I wanted to do things my way as far my platform. I decided to add my podcast to different platforms that I know people listen to. Then I got an email that said my blog needed to be updated so I picked up my laptop and began to write. Just because something tragic or devastating happens in your life that doesn’t mean that you have to give up on left and drown in your sorrow. GET UP! After I recorded my podcast and talked about my miscarriage, I felt so much better. I honestly felt free. I haven’t felt free like this since I started HUSH. I am a believer in turning tragedy into triumph. I went from the grave to a new life, a new way of thinking. I can help the millions of people that I am supposed to touch if I allow myself to be boxed in? I am so much bigger than just one thing. So much is given and so much is required. I am here to encourage someone to not give up. GET UP! Don’t let what you are going through stop the greatness that is on the inside of you. I get it you don’t feel like getting up and getting out of the house, I was the same way. I decided that I had to get up and be a blessing to someone else. This has taught me that I cannot expect people to be there for me if I am not opening myself up for them to be there. I get it someone of you are just private people, but we all need someone. As a woman I don’t have to be strong all the time that is why I have God, my husband, and the people that got had put in my life and the ones who are coming to be a part of my life. Can we let go of the saying that we have to have a small circle of friends. The bible speaks of “To have friends you must show yourself to be friendly, and therefore and friend will be closer to you than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 I paraphrased it, but you get what I am saying. It’s ok to have many circles of friends. I have friends from high school, the navy, church, friends that I grew up with and friends that I have met along the way. We all need each other if we could get out of our selfish ways and start being friendly, we could be so much further. Now hold on I need for some of you to have discernment okay because everyone can’t be your friend some people are snakes in the grass. If you pray and ask God to give you discernment so you can see who needs to be there and who doesn’t. Aight I am done the glory is gone and now I am just babbling. Listen be encouraged, go out and be Great. Don’t let your circumstances stop you. You have so much to live for and there are so many things waiting on you to get you together so they can enter your life. Step out on faith and do that thing that you have been wanting to do. Make sure you are following me on all my social media platforms as well as following my podcast HUSH Lounge on Spotify, Apple, iHeart, TuneIn, and Pandora. Everyone doesn’t listen to all of the same streaming platforms so which ever one is for you I am on there, and if I am not let me know what streaming platform you use and HUSH will be there.
