The Monday blues have me singing “The Breakup Song” by Francesca Battistelli over and over in my head. The powerful lyrics include:
“Sick and tired of being sick and tired; Had as much of you as I can take; I'm so done,So over bein' afraid. I've gone through the motions; I've been back and forth; I know that you're thinkin' you've heard this before; I don't know how to say it; So I'm just gonna say it. Yeah Fear you don't own me; There ain't no room in this story; And I ain't got time for you Tellin' me what I'm not, Like you know me; Well guess what? I know who I am; I know I'm strong And I am free; Got my own identity. So fear, you will never be welcome here”
It’s been one week ago that I launched this website. Yes, I am scared. But the Lord is helping me through it. Every moment of the day, I receive messages that everything’s going to be okay. As a matter of fact, just 3 days ago, my daughter gave me her fortune cookie that she got with her dinner. It said, “Don’t stop now.” Coincidence, you say? I believe in the messages. I believe in myself. I believe in empowering myself to improve. I am thankful.
In the beginning stages of this new adventure, I might be the only contributor for this blog, but I have so many supporters to give credit to. Number one goes to God. My other supporters are my husband, my mother, my daughters, my sisters, and my best friends. Each one of them are unique in their own way but all of them hold a special place in my heart. They are my purpose in life.
So, to end this blog short and sweet, I leave you with the serenity prayer. Don’t let the Monday blues get you down. Keep pushing on. Thank you for visiting this website.
"God grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things I can and the WISDOM to know the difference."
