A Year Ago Today, Destiny was calling my name.

A year ago today, I was inspired by the preaching of Joel Olsteen, who preached a message of “The Destiny Gene”.  I was motivated to unlock my Destiny gene.  In that message, something in me had awaken.  I resurrected an old blog, and renamed it “Unveiled by Dominique.”  On August 1, 2015, I wrote my first real blog. The blog was entitled 8-1…The First Day of my New Beginnings.  Below is an excerpt.

“Life had taken its toll on me. Circumstances, valley moments, pain, hurt, disappointments, joy, laughter, happiness, all rolled into one. 

There was a battle for my life, a war for my soul.  But “Death” would not, could not win. I was fighting to stay alive. It was an even score. Life and Death stood face to face, darkness tried to steal my heart away…(CeCe Winans-Mercy Said No). One day I heard that song. In April 2015, I was let go from my “9-5”.  You see the number 4 (April) derives its meaning from creation. On the fourth day of what is called ‘creation week’ God completed the material universe. On this day he brought into existence our sun, the moon, and all the stars (Genesis 1:14 – 19). Their purpose was not only to give off light, but also to divide the day from the night on earth, thus becoming a basic demarcation of time. They were also made to be a type of signal that would mark off the days, years and seasons. I was being re-born, coming out of my coma and into a destiny that was waiting for me.”

In the twelve months since then, I was truly discovering who I was, the real me.  There were some things in my life that I was beginning to realize were no longer tolerable.  Something was happening to me on the inside.  I could feel it. I was truly breaking chains.  In that same blog, I posted a picture.  That picture was a true representation of “the me” then. I was suffocating on the cares of life.  No one could help me.Interestingly enough,, my mind nor my heart could wrap itself around the destiny that was calling my name.  I was still going through the motions…Hiding behind the veil.  Encouraging and empowering women, but couldn’t help myself.  I could not pull my self out of the pit that I found myself in.  But one day my soul truly cried out.  And God heard… And something was activated–again.  But this time, I am going to stay the course.

This time, it is truly my new beginnings.  I am stepping out on faith.  This is the new me

I am a Native New Yorker! I found my passion in writing again when I realized we as women of color want to be ALL to everyone and minimum to ourselves, embracing our natural born nurturer instincts. And yet we hide behind a "Veil" of hurt, pain, disappointment and call it "Strength". Unveiled by Dominique is a movement for women of color to tear the the veil and reveal our true beauty and strength. There is Power in Transparency!
