So Close Yet So Far Away


For the past few years I have been working on my dissertation in my counseling psychology.  There have been times along this journey where I have been discouraged, uninspired, tired, unmotivated and honestly depressed.  However, through each and every twist and turn along the journey, I have always found the motivation to restart, refocus and move forward.  With the prayers and help of family, friends and sometimes strangers, I have found the drive and the fortitude to move forward.

As I move toward this next phase in my life, I wait in prayerful anticipation the magnitude of what this moment and those beyond it means.  I have been working hard and burning the midnight oil with a boat load of goals in mind, and each and every day I find myself closer to my goals, while at times they also seem so far away.  No matter what I am trusting the journey and most importantly I am trusting the process.  There is so much in store and so much ahead that I can hardly wait to see what God has in store for me.


I want to encourage everyone to keep moving forward toward your goals and don’t give up no matter how hard or how daunting the task may seem.  Quitting and giving up is not an option.  Don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way or become a distraction from your goals.  Keep pushing to achieve what you are trying to accomplish and never let anything or anyone stand in your way or stop you.  Know that no matter what the sky is the limit and with God all things are possible!  Good luck and see you at the top of the ladder.

Stay Blessed and Stay Fabulous!
