I thought this was fitting with the recent hurricanes we have been having. They caused some damage for sure. I didn’t have any loss of power and I think everyone around here about has their power back on now thankfully...
Life’s storms can hang around and be powerful as well, but they run out of water just like these recent hurricanes. When we weather life’s storms, we learn what we are capable of and we can experience a lot of growth. We just have to keep our umbrella up and lean on our tribe until the sun pops back out.
Just when I thought my heart may never feel whole again, God blessed me with her...maybe not in the traditional sense, but when does God ever follow human rules? ..
I had seen a side of humanity that I hadn’t opened myself up to before and it knocked me on my @$$. For a long time. Finally God said, “Here, you need her and she will need you.” And we have held tightly to each other for almost 8 years. And it’s only gonna get better; the bond only stronger. Whether you understand it or not 😉#greatestgiftever 💛💛 #bonusmom .
Doing some heart searching today. My prayer: “God show me who I am. Show me what you want me to do. And give me a pure heart and the strength to do whatever it is.” 💛💛...
What are you asking him today? Whatever it is, He is listening. Always listening. And He hears. And He answers.
Pretty is not the rent you have to pay to exist in the world as a woman #flexitpink ...
Beauty is not the curls in your hair or the makeup on your face. It is what shines behinds your eyes and within your smile. Beauty can be found deep in the corners of your heart and in the way it loves others. 💛
It took years for me to love myself.
There’s no turning back now...
I may have indulged a lot these last six months and gained 15 lbs back, but I’m not finished yet. I am constantly working on myself. But those 15 pounds do not define me. And I will lose them. But 15 lbs or no, my heart is the same! 💛...
Your weight does not define who you are. Love yourself by getting healthy, but that # is just data to help you get to healthy. It is not a measure of the woman you are. 💛
Because sometimes your focus is elsewhere. Because sometimes you are looking for something different. Don’t let them tell you that you aren’t looking in the right direction if your heart is all over it. Don’t let others live your life for you. 💛💛💛
I think my season of “floating” is over. More on that Wednesday, but change is coming. I feel it. I need to get back to going after what I want. Sweep away these cobwebs, lift this fog, and get some sun up in here! Get some full-of-love, inspirational rays back into my days!! 🌞...
Have y’all ever just felt stuck in the motions, foggy, not all the way present? It’s hard to shake but shaking it...now that I can do 😜
It’s October and we are getting ready for Halloween. BUT I, myself, love learning the Mexican celebration of Dia de Muertos that takes place Oct 31-Nov 2! And I have a thing for sugar skulls! I don’t know much about the celebration first hand, just what I have read. I do know it’s not scary and it’s not Halloween. But it sure is beautiful and a celebration of the life of loved ones no longer here with us. 💛. I would love to know more about it from someone who celebrates it. 😁...
And I love that my peeps think about me every time they see a sugar skull and sometimes even shower me with gifts. 💛...
Do you have a celebration that you have come to adore even though it isn’t your culture?
The most beautiful folks are those who have been on the trenches and have pulled themselves right out on top. Don’t you agree? Those who have gotten knocked down time and again and yet continue to fight and rise: those are the folks we should strive to mirror. Right?
