There are literally two weeks until the end of the semester for me and I feel that my energy and strength has been usurped. I need to remember what inspired me to come to law school. The work and information seems insurmountable, and on a daily basis I am having to give myself pep talks. I am starting to feel extremely taxed and overwhelmed. I need a sense of refreshing & renewal. Lord, please take the wheel and give me everything i need to finish this race strong and on top. I HAVE TO FINISH STRONG.
As I was sitting in church today, there were many things that I was thinking. As I was praising and thanking God for all of who he is to me, and hearing about living debt free, something in my spirit began speaking and reassuring me of what I already know and believe—I am a millionaire. The millionaire in me has some many ideas and ventures, from law to philanthropy the life that I must continue strive toward is beyond what I can fathom some days. I know that it is only something that God can usher me into. I am so ready for the journey.
at. a. crossroad.
I’m at a crux and crucial moment in the semester. There is literally a month left until my last final and I find myself trying to just get through. I feel like the weight of the work and world are on my shoulders somedays, like today. I know that I will prevail, but seeing the light at the end of the tunnel can sometimes be a struggle. Today is just one of those days that I need a break from it all but at this moment in time: there is no sleep for the weary. I will make it and I have to just continue to affirm my belief in God, and know that all things work together for my good & that I can do ALL things through christ who continues to strengthen and encourage me. I am truly blessed and grateful just to be here. The stress will not destroy or break me. I will get through this journey.
.long road ahead.
It is wonderful that on Tuesday Nov. 6th, the country reelected President Obama for a second term, and also the number of women in the Senate increased from 17 to 20. This is great, but as a nation we have miles to go before we rest. It is sad to say the least that there are not any African Americans in the Unites States Senate, and to date there have only been 6, and one woman. The numbers of African Americans who have been Senators is startling. It is necessary and essential that more women and African Americans begin to run for such positions and simply be themselves.
The road ahead is tumultuous but I am certain that all things are possible and will occur in due time. I believe very soon, this country will see and elect a Congress that is vastly more diverse and reflective of the true faces and cultures present in this country. There is much work to be done, but for now in the trenches we must work fervently and diligently to make that possible.
On Tuesday, November 6, 2012: History continued as President Obama was elected for a second term. Not only was the experience emotional all over again like in 2008, but it gave me confidence and optimism about the next four years. I am sure that he will exercise presidential privledges and rights this time since he will not seek re-election.
Economical issues, jobs, poverty, taxes, and immigration reform must be at the top of his list to make changes and take a stand on. However, it is refreshing that he has be given the green light by the people to proceed and continue to do better and more to improve the state of the country.
President Obama needed another term, and the people continued to believe in the change that he has promised since 08’ and quite frankly has delivered. It is wonderful to see and experience the joy of knowing that the first Black president gets another win & term.
