Enjoying The Journey

Good morning! Well I woke up to a cold crisp day!  Loving this weather! When I rolled my garbage can out to the street, I noticed trashed in the street in front of my house. So, I picked up the trash, got my morning paper, and looked up and there was my house.

You're thinking "ooookay, it wasn't like it was going to move. You knew it was there." But I really looked at it and you see it on TV but it happened to me. As I stood there, my life journey to that moment just flashed through my mind. I was reminded of all that God has brought me through. Thinking of how His grace, favor, mercy, and love have kept me through the years. Oh and I can't forget His peace! There is nothing in this world like peace of mind!! Wouldn't you agree? :-)

Standing there as the cold wind blew all around me, I was happy. Happy and grateful that I've had the opportunity to be a homeowner, to see a dream realized, and to have my family and friends enjoy my home. You know I've learned that happiness is attached to something deeper and not to material things. Being connected to the Creator and knowing that you are connected to all of creation is happiness--for me.

Everyday I nourish and work on that connection because it is my lifeline. :-) Now I don't feel happy everyday.  Nevertheless, my desire is to have more good days than bad. As simple as it sounds, it took me 30+ years to  finally truly understand this quote and I invite you to begin to embrace it [if you haven't already ;-)]:   

"Happiness is a journey, not a destination; happiness is to be found along the way not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it's too late. The time for happiness is today not tomorrow." ~ Paul H Dunn

Peace & Blessings always

I’m Trinka Polite! Georgia native! Aunt Extraordinaire (at least I think so)! Lover of divinely delicious food! Servant of God and I gratefully accept my calling as counselor, poet, and speaker. My mission? 

As a counselor, it is to empower you to access your full potential and live more authentically!

As a poet, it is to share words to inspire love, deliverance from hurtful situations and encourage a renewed relationship with God.

As a speaker, it is to provide a dynamic experience which will actively engage you and your group in learning and growing.

My professional background includes over 14 years as a Career Counselor providing education planning and career guidance.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and National Board Certified Counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology.  My publications include After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground—poetry collections focused on spiritual awakening and growth.

On a more personal note, the southern lady that I am loves to cook (have you seen my Pinterest board?) and have fun with my family!  Are there any two things that bring more joy to a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south)? Lol 

I hope we stay connected because new ventures are on the way to enlighten your mind and to partner with you to chart a course for your success!  

Peace & Blessings!
