You can’t do life only alone. And you can’t do life only together.

There are some things in life that you and I will always face and do alone, like being born. And dying. And going to a job interview. And getting behind the wheel the first time. And going through surgery. And standing before God. Especially standing before God.

No one can take your place, and you can’t avoid these moments. They are yours and yours alone. To shine, or not to shine. To win or to give up. There will be no one else to blame or praise.

This is #3 in a 26-part series entitled THE ALPHABET OF LIFE that you can find every Thursday at Womanhood with Purpose. Please click here to finish reading!
