I can't lie. I almost forgot to post today. Why might you ask? Because I completed my book this afternoon... editing, arrangement and all. The next step is to send it out to a couple of readers for some outside editing. While that's happening, I will be working on the other book matter. It is a process indeed.
So imagine how emotional I was today. I was a sight! You can best believe there was some praying, crying, and thanking going on over here. I even enjoyed a session of Candice Caraoke Dance Party. I went old school hip-hop. I danced until my body started complaining. It was a good day!

I'm keeping it moving people! One day at a time, one step at a time, and most crucially, one prayer at a time. There is no aspect of my life that I don't discuss with God. I want Him to guide me and when necessary, push me. Inviting Him to take the lead has made all the difference. He knows what I don't know and He can do what I can't. No one has been a better friend to me than Him. I thank Him for all He has done for me and for what He has in store for me. Often, I thank Him in advance because I know He's working in my favor.

See you next week,
Greetings from PlanetCandie!
I hope everyone has enjoyed a productive and happy week. My work was momentarily halted to spend time with my family. We had originally planned an in-person family reunion for this past Saturday. Due to pandemic concerns, we switched to a virtual format.
It was great. It was just what we all needed in terms of family togetherness. Our elders shared stories that many of us had never heard. It was empowering to know that I come from such a strong, faithful, and determined lineage. The only unfortunate part was our collective realization that we are still enduring some of the same horrible racism.
My ancestors persisted. If they hadn't, I'm certain I wouldn't be here today. When life gets rough, I often think of the examples of strength that shine through my people. I am both honored and humbled to join their ranks. I will continue to move forward and walk by faith as long as a breath remains.
This week's favorite selection from Candie's Blog is Part One of “One Toe In: Obstacles on our Journey”. I think it's the perfect post to celebrate my family's faith and perseverance. Click here to be transported. Enjoy!
I want to help uplift, inspire and empower others and to help leave the world a little better than I found it. I am an author, deep thinker & optimist. I know God is love. I am the author of "Candidreams: I Remember the Beginning" and "Role Reversal: Turn Pain Into Power".
