So, it’s been a good little minute since my last post and I come bearing good news. Some of you may consider it bad news, but let’s be positive within that. The blog has been pretty quiet for a few different reasons but we can start here… A lot has changed for me on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. I can honestly say that I’m not the same person I was 6 months ago. I don’t eat the same, think the same, or even walk the same, and that’s all in the direction of becoming a BETTER person. I only saw myself making small little changes though, not realizing that there was a spirit leading and preparing me for something bigger than myself. With all of this I felt myself pulling away from Hera Nyx. I didn’t want my blog to be called Hera Nyx anymore and I wanted to let go of the alias, (Latoya, is my birth name). As I started working on “rebranding” my site and name, my spirit led me in a completely different direction when the words Endure Together revealed itself. It was in that moment that I realized it was time to put this blog to rest. I know that probably sounds a bit extreme, but stick with me as I bring some understanding to this matter.
There was a post I wrote some time ago where I expressed my spiritual journey and described it as floating through a tunnel. Although that might not say much, know that I was sincerely searching for truth. I feel as though many of us have this empty feeling inside and no matter how much we try to deny it, it’s there. That emptiness for me was my identity; understanding who I was, my purpose, and how to navigate through life. You see, life isn’t what it seems and once we start to shuffle through the lies and expose them, we awake to an even bigger agenda.
Through the love of the creator and His guidance I understand my condition. I understand my place in this struggle. Connecting with Him was the beginning of truth, knowledge, and understanding. It is also the reason why I’m changing. Change in a sense that it’s not about me and that I no longer seek the riches of this world. Change in a sense that I’ve connected with the spirit that was in me the whole time. Change in the sense that there is a POWER who created the heaven and the earth, and he has chosen a nation to himself, to be a light in this world. My whole perspective has changed and the things that are constantly on my mind, whether it’s healthy eating, spiritual warfare, or walking in truth, don’t really find a place here.
So, yes Hera Nyx is put to a final rest, but the birth of a new chapter has surfaced. I created a new blog titled, Endure Together. It’s filled with words of wisdom, poems, personal stories, visual narratives, and so much more. There’s a war going on, a spiritual war and I choose to be on the side of righteousness and fight to wake up my people. The purpose of Endure Together is to help strengthen and uplift brothers and sisters; those who walk in truth and others who seek truth. There’s a statement Lauryn Hill made during her MTV unplugged performance that spoke volumes. She said, “The more I lose myself, the more I realize I can be used to spread a message.” That’s where I’m at, and know that I come with Love.
