Some of you may have noticed that there has been a lack in the updates to Mind of a Diva, and there’s a good explanation for that. This site has always been about being true to yourself and discovering the beauty that you possess. Over the years I’ve discovered many things with you, but I only share certain aspects.
I will talk about stories or situations that happen to or around me, but I’ve always been leery to share my full self because I didn’t want anyone to be turned off by it. In my private life I’m very involved in my faith walk. I talk, sing, and share Jesus all the time because that’s a part of me. My faith is who I am, and until now I didn’t want say it because I was afraid of the backlash that may come with it.
Five years ago when I was praying for an outlet to write and a way to build my portfolio He told me in a dream to start a site about what I know. I remember vividly that I told him the only thing I know is my life and He said that’s it and told me what to name it. So with excitement I started this site and it has grown beyond what I could have ever imagined it to be.
The only thing is that I left Him out of it. I always shared how He blessed me with the site and made a way for me to write, but I never shared what else He’s done for me. He gave me a medium to reach people all over the world but I wasn’t using it to tell how He’s been good to me. All because I was worried how it would be perceived.
When my grandmother passed away I felt lost and alone, like the world had pulled the rug from underneath me. I didn’t know what or who to turn so I became very depressed until one day when I hit my lowest point Jesus spoke to me. That’s when I turned back to him and since then my life has taken a completely new path.
I say all this because Mind of a Diva is evolving, we could continue the way we are but I would rather be authentic than be fraction of our true self. We’re going to share our faith, trials, tribulations, and all that makes up the life of a Diva. Being a Diva means being self-aware and sharing it with others, no matter the consequences.
