The gift of life should be the reason we are all happy. People have asked me how can you remain so positive when life throws you curveballs? Or the best yet, why are you so happy? I giggle at that one.

The answer to the first question is simple. We have the gift of life and I had to learn It’s all in how you look at life. If you look at life as full of misery and despair then that’s what you’ll attract more of. But if you look at your life as full of joy and happiness, you’ll find good and gratitude in every situation it won’t matter if it’s good or bad. You’ll handle problems in a better state of mind. And you’ll be better equipped for whatever comes your way.

It took me a long time to get to this place. It took a lot of inner perspective and release of negative energy that has previously consumed me.

You see my life was never really easy. At least that’s what I thought. I struggled most of my life with self-love, self-confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, self-acceptance and self-respect. It all stemmed from childhood and life experiences.

Self Love Gift of Life

I used to blame my parents and other people that did me harm for the way my life turned out. I see others doing the same. Blaming other people. But at some point, we have to take responsibility for our own lives

I had to come to terms that My parents did everything they knew how with the tools and knowledge they had when it came to loving their kids. But somehow, I got lost in the mix and my perception in life became I was not worthy.

So begins the search in high and low places for love and fulfillment in all external situations. Nothing and no one ever fulfilled that desire for love. Depression, desperation, desertion and loneliness set in because I thought I wasn’t worthy of love.

It got so bad at one point in my life that I tried to end my life because I thought my life wasn’t valuable to anyone. So why should I value it? My excuse was, their life would be easier if I was no longer around. I allowed the guilt and anguish I felt to consume my entire life.

Eventually, I had to take a step back and really analyze myself and my life. One day I had this AH HA MOMENT.



Kirk Franklin’s song “Wanna Be Happy”

I heard this song time and time again. But on this one particular day, this song reached my soul and the words spoke to me bringing tears to my eyes. I realized I wasn’t ready to receive this message before. It wasn’t until I was tired of my life being the same and tired of dealing with the pain that’s when I knew something had to change.

There’s a verse that says, “If I keep on doing the things that keep bringing me pain. There’s no one else I can blame if I’m not happy. I wasted time but now I can see The biggest enemy was me”


And when the song asked, Do you wanna be happy? I fell to my knees and I said YES, I just wanna be happy.

So there began my journey to find happiness from within and not from external places

True happiness comes from being able to accept who you are, realizing you’re perfect just as you are and others opinions of you don’t mean a damn thing. You have to fall in love with yourself. Because NOTHING externally will bring you the happiness and fill that need of love we all desire.

Today, I accept me for me and all my flaws, I love being who I am, and I am worthy to be loved. I challenge you to do the same! Fall in Love with yourself! Accept you for who you are.

So how can I be so happy? The Gift of Life Brings Me Overwhelming Joy and Happiness is my answer.

When I reflect on my life, I realize the enemy within me had a plan to kill me but It wasn’t in God’s plan for me to leave this earth back then. He knew I had work to do. And that work is my life’s purpose today.  I didn’t know it then, but I can say I know it now. I can understand why my attempt to take my life failed.

The fact that I’m alive today is only because of His mercy and grace. because on that particular day if no one had found me, I wouldn’t be here to share my story AND continue my purpose in life and share my message to those that need to hear it. My story proves that God can use me.

So I can be happy, joyful and grateful EVERYDAY because my life is a gift!

I want you to know…It doesn’t matter what you are going through. There’s nothing in this world more valuable than YOU! YOU’RE LIFE! YOU ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY PROBLEM YOU ENDURE! YOU CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING!
