Feature Friday: You are the Solution to a Problem!
Hello Royal Family! It's Friday! YAY!!! Time to relax and enjoy the weekend but before we do, I want to remind you all that we are all a solution to a problem in the world. There are so many things going on in the world right now and with the most recent issues related to our youth happening, I felt that it was fitting to feature a post from Empowerment Specialist Donivyn Zanders. We all have a part to play in restore hope and a better future for not only ourselves but the generations after us. Here's a reminder of how you can be the change.
Every time I hear something that is relatively close to this concept it resonates with me, because I really have to think about how my LIFE will be a solution to a problem.
I remember when I wanted to start speaking and I had no idea what I wanted to talk about or who I wanted to talk to and then I took a few steps back and I said "I know what it feels like to be disappointed. I know what it feels like to be hurt.” Throughout my life many people have taken small parts of me that left me with voids. Those events were unfortunate however, those individuals were not the ones that destroyed my life; it was ME.
I was always my own worst enemy.
I wasn't taking the best care of myself when it came to motivation, consistency, effort, and heart.
Then it hit me like a ton of bricks!!
YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE!!
Go tell young adults your pain and your hurt....show them your scars.
Not to scare them but to help them.
When I tried to commit suicide I did not understand that there were people who loved me, wanted the best for me, and I can honestly say thinking back on it now, the environment I was in, was not the best for growth.
Donivyn how are you the solution?
I’m glad you asked!
I am the one that will save the lives of the youth.
Some youth may not attempt to commit suicide.
Some may never have the same issues that I have had.
But those that are in the dark place, those that are turned in the wrong direction, I will be the one that reaches my hand back and PULL them up.
I will be the SOLUTION to the increase of youth suicides.
I will be the SOLUTION to the lack of purpose and vision
I will be the SOLUTION to the virus that rest in the earth.
What I want the world to understand is that we are all solutions to problems. I heard an amazing quote for Dr. Dharius Daniels which said "Birth is an expression of purpose and in that purpose is a solution to a problem.” This has stuck with me for the past year.
In the Book of Jeremiah, God says "Before I formed you in your mother’s womb I knew you and made you a prophet to the nations.” How powerful is that to say, before your mother and your father knew you were going to be born, even before you began to shape in your mother’s womb, God knew you and He had a purpose for YOUR life.
He understood that you will have trials and tribulations. That sometimes things just wouldn’t go your way but yet and still you are here. You have breath in your lungs, you have blood pumping through your veins!
You are the change agent!
You are the catalyst!

Never forget....YOU ARE THE SOLUTION.
