Embrace the cycle

Everything always works out in the end, even if it seems like they wont at the time. I struggle with patience when it comes to things out of my control, patience is a tricky one for me.

Why am I telling you this story? Because today I decided to just let whatever comes out of me come out freely and that I will share it with you without being too concerned with what the neighbors will think or the church will think or just anyone really. My life is my life and all this shame that people feel they need to force on me and on you is just not cool.
