The day everything almost fell apart:
When you were created for greatness, the universe will give you as many second chances as it takes to have you live, walk and become your purpose. I have been through a process of metamorphosis that is nothing short of miraculous. I have survived cervical cancer, endometriosis, myoma, deafness, a swollen gland in the brain, near drowning, abuse, divorce, a hysterectomy and have to live with an autoimmune disease.
This may be a mouthful and too surreal for one person to have not only endured but come out alive of, but it has all been crucial for my becoming the person I am today. The scars I bear on my body, just like the accolades I have been awarded are all medals of honor. They testify of what greatness can come out of physical, emotional and spiritual brokenness when we allow the pieces to come together and become a masterpiece mosaic.
