What's Interesting: Trust Your Journey


Lately I've been having to pinch myself to see if the events that are occurring in my life are truly real. There's been a lot of pinching going on, and needless to say, I've developed quite a bruise...but a good bruise (if that makes sense).

For those of you who have been reading So What to Twenty since the beginning, you were with me when I shared my journey of self-discovery. That journey then segued into my inspirational memoir titled, A Place Called Peace. A Place Called Peace chronicled the difficult road I had to traverse in order to find the real Glenda. I was plagued with very low thoughts of myself which stemmed from an ongoing comparison to my older sibling. After decades of driving what felt like an uncontrollable vehicle, I was shown a dream that told me it was time to release everything that was causing me to lose control.

The process wasn't an easy one. As a matter of fact, it was one of the most difficult decisions I had ever made. If I didn't make the decision to change, life would remain chaotic and without direction and meaning. There had to be something better. That is when I finally made the brave move to go on my journey - a place where I had to face the ugliest, scariest, most intimidating parts of my soul; and a place where I had to release anything and everyone who was no longer a part of my next chapter. The cool thing about the entire process, I already knew, that in the end, after being in the thick of things, I would come out in total peace with myself. 

Four years after taking that bold step, I'm amazed at the continual growth and progress that has enveloped my life. The events that have happened have all been organic connections without me trying to make something happen, or trying to seek validation from others. Huh, that sentence just struck a cord within me. The former Glenda always felt the need to be validated. Now I embrace my uniqueness and I have complete peace in my journey. It feels awesome to finally be on a road where the opinions of others no longer shape me.

On April 30th, I've been invited to share on the this very topic of triumph in a topic called, Trust Your Journey, at the Temecula Valley Women's Expo (April 29th and 30th). To say I'm thrilled is an understatement. I'm pinching myself! A decade ago I had no idea of this woman named Glenda, now, I've embraced her and I'm excited to share my story with others.

  2. Oh my heavenly stars!! Glenda this is such wonderful news.. It's amazing when you let go and Let God (steer your path). It is with his divine guidance and trust that continues to allow the doors of your path to continue to open. I wish this was an event I could make but one day (i truly believe) our paths will cross (physically)
