Discovering YOU Magazine June 2018 Issue - Page 4


Hello everyone,

As we enter into the spring season with anticipation of flowers blooming and new life springing forth from the fury little animals that share our living environment, we know that something new is approaching that we have never experienced before. Although it may be new, it is most anticipated I am sure. With this anticipation comes a sense of hope that everything will turn out alright. There is surely a need for hope because so many are going through difficulties and trials that seem so horrific that if it were not for the grace of God, they would just faint in their minds and give up on life itself. How many of you can relate to what I am saying? You probably wonder what and why now am I experiencing this. On the other hand, you may be facing a time in your life when there must be changes made in order to get to the goals that you have set for your life and the destiny you feel lead to fulfill. These changes are not comfortable and they may even mean leaving people that we have been around for a lifetime. Yes, a very serious paradigm shift is in the works and it is staring you in the face asking you what you are going to do about it. Well, let me tell you what is happening just in case you have not quite figured it out yet----You are at a crossroad.
