A diamond in the rough,
A sparkle of beauty,
Grace not tampered,
Flower in the desert,
Soul fought with time,
Sarah Jakes Roberts.
Her book, Lost & Found: Finding HOPE in the Detours of Life is a graceful humane read that warmed my heart, knocked on my womanhood door and smeared reality on my face.
We punish ourselves for being different,
Diminish what we can do,
Hold our wounds,
Carry backpacks of depression,
Loose our sense of growth,
Miss out on what the universe hands to us,
And struggle with pain and brutal experiences.
Anybody out there?
Staring desperately at the window, we thirst for true love and hunger for hope,
Desire for embrace,
Blinded by our own complications,
Infected with our wrong choices,
Split between our needs and our wants,
Bitter with our surroundings,
Trying to track our steps back,
And feel sidelined and handcuffed from our dreams.
Her sunshine words will craft your new beginning, recreate your destiny and land you to your destination.
She shares her devastating and inspirational detour of her life from being a pregnant teenager to a woman of wisdom and wit.
She will teach and touch your heart in more ways than one.
Despite the number of scars, you are stronger than you think.
You can come out from any ordeal and stand out.
Your tears make you stronger and wiser.
You are beautifully wounded.
Always will be.
In Conclusion, permit me to leave you with this quote from Eckhart Tolle:
“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.”
