I, Rosalind Y. L.Tompkins, am your Hope Universe Curator into the world of possibilities. My trademarked phrase, “As long as there is breath in your body, there is hope® “is known throughout North Florida and South Georgia and it is the title of my first book. I overcame extreme circumstances of sexual abuse, drug and alcohol abuse as well as other major issues. As a result of what I experienced I started two thriving non-profit organizations from the ground floor, Mothers In Crisis, Inc. and Turning Point International Church where I have helped thousands of people for over twenty-five years through the power of God’s love.
I spent twelve years of my life addicted to drugs and alcohol and believe me it was no picnic. However I did learn valuable lessons from that experience that I share and examine in all of my books, “As Long As There Is Breath In Your Body, There Is Hope”, “Rare Anointing” “You Are Beautiful” and “Girl Get Your Fight Back.”
I must say, through the experience of having been a bonafide drug fiend, I learned what it means to have to have something.
When I was addicted to crack-cocaine especially I learned what it meant to crave something literally all of the time until I got it. My whole life was consumed with either using, thinking about using, or doing whatever it took to use. I was very passionate about my addiction. Drugs came first period. I had no other choice because I was addicted.
Well it has been over twenty-five years since I have been free from drugs and alcohol and walking in my recovery and I have come to accept the fact that I have somewhat of an addictive personality.
That trait has actually served me well. Over the years I have learned how to make it work for me because it fuels passion and persistence. After getting clean and sober I had to find another target for all of that energy. I had to find my “It” which I identify as my purpose and destiny. In my latest book, “What Is It” I explore in detail how to find your IT!
