Guess what she did today?...... She GRADUATED!!! 👩🏽🎓 And who is she? The Founder of ALIVE and WORTHY! That's right! Today I walked across the stage and received my Masters of Science in Christian Counseling of Substance Abuse and Addictive Disorders with a 3.79 GPA. Yes I did! Let me tell you why I am soooo excited.
It took me 6 ☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽 years to get this degree. Not because of school because school always came easy to me. But in 2012, after I finished my Bachelors, I went straight into my Masters program to become a Counselor. Then life happened. 2013, I got extremely ill. Had 3 partial colectomies on my intestines in a matter of 2 years that took 2 years to heal (cut from breast bone to pelvic bone and wear the scar proudly to prove it). I was defeated, busted, disgusted with myself, felt worthless and was just ready to quit..... EVERYTHING. But something came over me that told me that I couldn't. End of 2016, I finally said enough is enough and went back to school.
Today I walked across that stage claiming done status and is feeling like a proud woman, wife, momma, entrepreneur, all of that. Sickness couldn't hold me down. Depression couldn't take me out. No matter how hard they tried, I did it and I am so proud of myself. The scriptures I stood on was Luke 1:45 and Psalms 37:4. But long story short, I believed I could and I did by His grace..... yay me! Lol. But if I did it, so can you. Next stop, my doctorate! 😎 Yep, that's it. Lol. Why? Because as long as I am ALIVE, I am WORTHY of anything I desire in my heart. 💜💜💜
