Motivation after A Long Week


Last week was the week that seemed like it had no end. It was eventful and emotional.

At its close, I found myself in the belly of Barbados, surrounded by nature in ways I had never seen it. I was exploring Hunte’s Gardens, so named “the most enchanting place on Earth.”

Barbadian photographer, Kyle Babb; his friend, Jamie; and my best friend, Shari were with me. The energy was great.

As Kyle’s lens click-clacked away and I took in all the beauty that surrounded me, I felt the weariness of the long week melting away.


And the more the evening went on, the more I felt reassured that

  1. I am exactly where I am meant to be.
  2. Everything is working together for my good.
  3. I am going to make it, and I am going to win.

And now, as I stand almost face-to-face with another weekend, I don’t feel freaked out but I feel full–full of hope and full of peace.

And as God whispered to my spirit there in Hunte’s Gardens last week, I thought I would keep the message going:

You are exactly where you are meant to be.

Everything is working together for your good.

You are going to make it. And you are going to win.
