As I type this, I'm so grateful to be able to share my story and to be able to do it through poetry. All the days of not knowing what the future would hold feel small, but also important as I look back. Each of the uncertain moments have a place along my stone road. Each moment became part of a much bigger story of healing and growth. And now, as we launch the pre-orders for my first book of poetry, I can say with joy and peace, "This Is My Story, This Is My Song". Thank you for your support and I look forward to connecting with you! I hope you'll grab a copy between now and July 1 so I can sign and send it to you, along with the free digital video download. You'll find all the information on my site: http://roshanjames.com or bit.ly/RJpreorders. Love and blessings, Roshan ❤️

Please take a second to visit the site and let me know your thoughts! I'm so thankful for the opportunity to share what God has placed on my heart through this site, and I hope it's a source of encouragement for you. It is truly amazing what God can do with broken pieces.  I'd also like to thank a few key people who have supported me with this project:  @grafmartincommunications for their insight and advice, @oneforthewall for Hilary's gifted photography skills, and @robynleprix for her style consulting. Lastly, Patrick LaFrenere, thank you for being my tireless sounding board and for cheering me on each day. Much love and blessings, Roshan ❤️

Have you felt too tired, busy or overwhelmed to welcome a new friendship or to be more present than you already are for those around you? I understand that feeling, and I've been the one on the other side, too, looking for support from people who aren't in a space to provide it. It's a feeling rooted in a fear of change and scarcity.... A feeling that we'll somehow leave ourselves too open, or we'll be depleted energetically or spiritually. Or perhaps we're afraid our views or opinions will be challenged, or we'll need to change our minds....! What I've come to realize is that it all passes, and we move in and out of seasons for a reason. It's completely ok if you need time to focus on you, but what we need to be careful of is not closing ourselves off to people or situations that may be coming across our paths for a reason. And if we pray for the clarity to see these opportunities, God will also provide the strength and energy we need - His strength - to open ourselves up. If you've read this far, and if I can pray for you, please let me know by commenting or sending me a DM!

A year later, I left a corporate career behind, sold the big house and I'm moving forward in faith, knowing that God has called me to write for Him. It's been beautiful and difficult. I've had some friendships cool off, and new friendships blossom. I have family who support me, and some who don't. I've felt so close to God on many days, and then there are other days when doubts creep in. It is far from a "perfect" life, but I wouldn't trade the challenges for anything. Through the rough patches, which can sometimes last for days and weeks, I'm learning how present He is when I keep my focus on Him. Even if I don't *feel* Him, He is still there working away on things I don't see yet. What does abundance look like now? It's contentment in a simpler way of living, and enjoying family time with my partner and children who fill my life with joy. It's learning that I don't need to strive and stress, while still being diligent with the gifts He's given me to use. It's excitement knowing His good plan is unfolding in my life, and all I need to do is trust and obey.
