I absolutely could have commented on ALL of your posts from the last 4 months (because I have scrolled backwards and read them), but I just wanted to let you know...

Thou doest not blog in vain.

You are talented... very talented. Your mind is very sharp and I (and many others) enjoy your scribe. Its been a long time since I've visited the site, and now I see I've missed a lot.

It gets rough to get beyond the initial procrastination and doubt BUT if you can just remember that God is no respecter of persons, and He's the same God he was for Diddy and JayZ and Russell Simmons and Prez Obama, as He is for YOU!. Meaning, He hasnt run out of blessings or favor and He can bless you into the same success and prosperity that He has done for them and others!

Now is not the time for hesitancy or self-doubt. Excuses are no more.

Just do it.
