by Dawgelene "Dr Dawj" Sangster- With a new year well underway, many have set new goals, changed paths and are excited about doing something different. What is forgotten sometimes is that when new goals are set, paths are changed and something new is done, individuals are giving up the old thoughts, things and oftentimes people that were held dear to them, in order to move forward. It is so important to note that everyone won't understand your new path, mission, purpose and overall direction God has sent you in, but then again, He didn't instruct them nor is He guiding them.
While the pain of losing those you thought had your back or supported you could be great, along with the potential fear you may have in stepping into the unknown, the joy of trusting God and seeing His purpose for your life come into view, will begin to heal the wounds of loss over time.
Remain committed to your purpose
Stay on the Path designated for YOU
Cast all of your cares on God allowing Him to take on the everyday burdens so you don't have to
Stop beating yourself up because of setbacks
