Recently, I heard a quote on KQED (public radio) from Maya Angelou, the African-American author and poet, which really resonated with me and it goes like this “We need the courage to create ourselves each day.” What an extraordinary statement! Notice how she didn’t use the word, “recreate”? That’s because it’s not about recreating; it’s about creating yourself! Do you have the courage to create yourself each day?

As a Psychic/Intuitive Medium, Interfaith Minister, Spiritual Relationship Counsel and Grief Counselor, I hear many stories throughout my day and night that leave my heart wishing I could do more. I wish I had a magic wand to wave that would make anything better instantly. Unfortunately, that’s not the way life works. The best I can do is pray for healing—not just for them, but also for me, because for every person I talk to there is a piece of them in me waiting to be awakened.
Creating ourselves each day isn’t easy because we live in a chaotic and fear-filled world.
A few days ago, a friend reached out to me for advice. She was in a domestic violence situation. She sobbed hysterically; she was so fragile. I wanted to jump through the phone and surround her with my warm, motherly arms. I listened as she shared the details of the last 19 months of her young life. It was horrible! Then she asked if I had been through something similar. I had. About 30 years ago I was in an abusive marriage. Talking about it with this friend brought up all the old feelings—shame, helplessness and vulnerability. Like her, I felt stupid. I thought if I loved him more he would change. I was wrong.
We’re both accomplished women—she and I. We’re bright, intelligent and now we are soul sisters.
How I Created Myself
When the sobbing stopped, she asked me what she should do. She wondered if she would ever live a normal life again. She wondered if she would ever feel safe or find new, better love. I told her that she’s a courageous, resilient and loving woman. She then asked me what I did after I left my abusive marriage. I told her I stayed with a friend for a while and then I joined support groups for abused women. In time, I got a job as a counselor, went back to school and decided to dedicate my life to helping others. I took a lot of baby steps, but I found the courage to create myself. I vowed that I would always stay true to myself. I learned to say yes when I meant it and no when I meant it too. Now, each and every day I give thanks for who I am and what I can do for others. You can create yourself too!
Choose Your Path
As my friend and I talked into the night, she began to calm down. We even managed to share a laugh. Abuse changes your life forever, but you have the power to choose your own path. You just need the courage to create yourself each day. Every day, do a little something that makes you a new and better person. It’s not always easy, but it’s totally worth it.
With love always,
