The Best of Me (Facing Adversity)

I have had some challenging seasons within my life. No, mine may not have been as drastic as others, but those moments still shaped my life in a new way. The biggest lesson that I oftentimes bypass is that hard times can produce treasure. When I look over certain parts of my life when I was talked about a lot by peers, or when I became a single mother, I see a young woman that was trying to beat the odds. I am used to dissolving into tears when I reflect on things that have happened to me in the past, but I feel that those moments can become powerful now. Powerful in my storytelling when I’m writing blog posts or posting something encouraging on my Instagram….powerful in the way I approach new life situations…powerful in my pursuit of higher learning and entrepreneurship….

The “best” is usually revealed after adversity makes its debut. Pain, trauma, loss, defeat, failure, and disappointment all have a way of bringing out the diamonds behind those setbacks if you allow. Another truth is that not all learn from tragic things that have happened to them. There are others that fall into the trap of “victimhood” and never get up from the “shame and blame”. Our perspective matters when it comes to overcoming situations/circumstances that have surrounded our life. You can either look at the situation through the eyes of a chicken and fear to see what’s on the other side of that, or you can see “like an eagle”, and soar above the odds.

I have to truly admit that those hard moments were bringing the best out of me. Those lessons are helping me to gain understanding in the type of relationships/friendships I truly need in my life, revealing abilities I thought I never had, and shining light on the truth that I can actually survive without drama and certain people in my life. I faced the adversity….

I guess this post become a little more real than expected, but transparency is a “great storyteller”. As always, feel free to share your story of overcoming and spark some encouragement in someone else’s life. Good day, overcomers!

About Me

Hi..My name is ShuCora Walker. No, I am not the woman in the picture, but my words represent people like her. People who love good conversations. People who enjoy sharing their life stories. People who tell the truth to not only inspire but to heal, learn, and grow. I have been writing since my preteen years and found peace in letting my heart bleed out on the paper through my words. The focus of my writing has always been to share stories of triumph, struggles, and faith because God is the reason why I write. I remember at one point that I wanted to take my life, but God deemed it not to be because He still had a purpose for my life. Now, I am using my words to share my life journey so others can learn from it. Yes, one day I plan to open up this platform to other writers so we can continue to learn from different experiences of life. So, this is a space for anyone seeking to live a life of real freedom and enjoy some good moments along the way…
