In life, we all go through a series of ups and downs. When life throws us curveballs, it can be all too easy for us to ask Why me? However, what if we shifted our perspective and saw the negative vents in our lives as blessings in disguise, as gifts that we can leverage to make our lives and the lives of others better?
Presented by Actress/Comedian Kim Coles, Open Your G.I.F.T.S., Vol. 2 , is a collection of stories that encourages us to do just that. Each of the authors , including Diamond shares a part of their journey and demonstrates how they turned their hardships into strengths. G.I.F.T.S. stands for Gratitude, Intention, Forgiveness, Triumph, and Self-Love, and the anthology is divided into sections that address each of these themes. Reading the stories of these authors will inspire you to open your own G.I.F.T.S. and share them with the world. Diamonds G.I.F.T.S is TRIUMPH.
We relocated hoping to start life over and leave our worries behind, but after five years living in another state and three weeks of pure hell; six months later we went into hiding. At that point I only had two questions I needed answered, the first question I asked myself is this; why didn’t I just go to college after high school? And the other question I dare not ask is to question God, but he knows me oh so well, so I won’t question God, but I have this question for God: "Why me God?"
