For a while, I was stuck in between.
I’ve known since I was eight years old that God had placed a very special thing inside of me that I love to call, the writing bug. I was never shy about it; I always wanted to write. However, as the years went by and life happened, I realized I had no idea what to write.
“How can I help others when it seems at times I can’t help myself?”
But how can I help others when it seems at times I can’t help myself?
This is the question that has kept me from starting this blog. Fiction is easy. Fiction is a world that I can create the scenery, where I make all the rules, I forsee any drama and decide the outcome. Real life doesn’t work that way. But I can still use my gift to help myself as well as others. I can help you find your road to recovery by sharing mine.
Recovery is defined as the act or process of returning to a normal state after a period of difficulty. Life is nothing but a series of courses in a journey and sometimes those courses are difficult. We like to move on as if unaffected by these hard times. Without addressing them and finding the root of the problem, we are not actively recovering.
So when we try to go into another course, we are still wounded by the past; which results in unfair assumptions and new pain to deal with. If we took the time to process and heal, we could have recovered and learned the lesson that God expected us to learn; making the next course a little less difficult.
See the difference?
As a Christian, as a black woman, as a family member, as a friend, as an entrepreneur: I should always be actively recovering from something. This is not always easy, but it’s not always hard.
As I near the end of my 20’s (help me Jesus) my objective is to focus on three areas of recovery: spiritually/mentally, physically and financially.
“The act or process of returning to a normal state after a period of difficulty.”
I would love to share my journey with you. I will not only keep you posted on my revelations, discoveries, and applications in my daily life, but I would love to hear and share in your journeys as well.
We can treat this like an AA meeting. No one is perfect. My word is not law. But if my gift can help me heal and assist others in doing the same…I’ll share anyway.
Hello, my name is Christian Cashelle…and I’m recovering.
