today at 5am

Dear Friend, When I wake up at 5am, I get some of the most subtle but interesting thoughts. As I go through the day, I hardly share these thoughts because they’re either “too random” or I forget them by noon. In March 2019, I decided to share 1 thought every morning for 31 days. #TodayAt5AM is a collection of these thoughts that I shared via Instagram. I believe that there’s a message in there for someone. The process allowed me to remain accountable to my morning start time, while simultaneously sharing the first thing on my heart each morning. I hope you enjoy it!

this thing called purpose

This Thing Called Purpose is a book that helps people understand the true essence of living with and through purpose. Everything I address in this book are things that I wish were addressed by the books I have read in my lifetime. Most books motivate you to fly and be successful, but they don’t tell you that in order to do all of that greatness, you have to first strip the layers you’re carrying. This book is designed to help you unlearn some of the things you have allowed into your heart and mind, strip yourself fully of the junk, and then move confidently in your purpose. I share more about this thing called purpose - what I know about it, how I have learned to trust it, and how it guides everything I do. In some chapters, I make reference to biblical stories, and spirituality. There was an initial concern that non-christians may be unable to relate to some of these references, however, it is my hope that regardless of your religious beliefs, the acknowledgement that there is a higher spirit will suffice in understanding the scriptural references provided. If you’re reading this, I want you to know that God will never take anything away from you without the intention of replacing it with something better. Better is relative. What is good for you, is different from what is good for another. It doesn’t mean that what you had was bad, it just means that there is better for you. Sometimes, we think that pruning means that what we cut off must be bad. No. Pruning requires cutting off what will not allow you grow. In many cases, it will be things that you are sentimental about, and have grown to love. After all that I have been through, it has become easier for me to trust God. I know that He is always working even when I can’t see it. Faith is not I’ll see it, when I believe it. Faith is I’ll believe it, and then I’ll see it. I believe it’s impossible to talk about purpose, without addressing faith. In my experience, faith has been the runway on which the plane of purpose takes off and lands. When you’re piloting a dream, it is faith that screams “land here, I’ve got you. Just land!”. It is faith that screams “your engine has been checked, and you’re good for take off. I’ve got you. Take off now!”. Faith is everything when it comes to the fulfillment of purpose. Purpose is not a joy ride, it comes with great responsibility and there are moments that won’t be the best for you. But because of you, it will be the best for someone else. Purpose is not just about your “Why” - Why am I doing this ?”, it is also about your “Who”- Who will benefit from this ? Purpose will push you to exist in situations and places that you ordinarily wouldn’t. I hope you enjoy reading this book, and that it guides your way to light up the world!
