I started blogging from the hotel room where I lived for ten months after Hurricane Harvey flooded me out of my home. As the waters subsided, I focused on my faith in God and gratitude for family and friends. And if I had ever thought about blogging before, suddenly that story spilled into my laptop, a peace beyond understanding filled my soul, and I felt as if I had discovered and must share the secret formula to life:
Faith + Gratitude = Peace + Hope
Post-reconstruction, I write to reflect and inspire. Adversities of life are often unavoidable, and I often find myself thinking of my dad. When I was young, my dad would always say, “Crystal, you can choose your attitude.” One day I started to believe him.
