About A Woman and Her Pen!

Understanding that Guidance is sometimes lost.....Wisdom is a gift .....Empathy is a need....Respect is earned and Unity certainly is a must! Thankful because - I "can be" because God "always was"....

Bonding


Before we can effectively build a relationship / rapport with anyone- we first have to have the tools to know what that even looks like.

Knowing who I am naturally and spiritually is something that I prioritize to work on, chip at and amend everyday because growth is the new sexy! ( LOL ) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘

A person has to be whole before they can have any type of ability to love- I am NOT saying that your life has to be perfect at all.

There’s a great deal of broken people who still “manage to love” individuals…. Is it healthy? Probably not, but isn’t that what love is? Love is / should be ALWAYS unselfishly given – shown – felt.

Being able to “do ministry” “do life” but most importantly “live for Christ” with my son is an unexplainable feeling!!๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ™ˆ He indeed is MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ

Week from Today-


I promise to finally put myself first

I promise to maintain better balance

I promise to be more sensitive to the Holy Spirit

I promise to be more open to change

I promise to put my goals in perspective

I promise to be grateful for my current season in life

I promise to read more

Etc….Etc….Etc……

Now- although I’m saying that a week from today and of course I can imagine someone saying ….. “Why wait” for a week from now?

Well I’m aware of some things that I need to work on- Definitely the changes have been turning and progressing.

Nonetheless- the tide is turning and literally a week from now – I’ll ALREADY have been operating in “my change” so that date won’t hold that much significance.

I said all this to say- know when it’s time to work on certain things in your life and make a plan to do it.

Take baby steps if you have to but the worse thing we can continually do is make a list of things to accomplish and never be able to check anything off!

Type of Day That I Had


184a8f082-67d6-4c50-bd84-aa1aa5e321a8.2

Whew –

It has been almost forever and a day since I have even blogged – LIFE has REALLY been happening to me….in me…towards me and also for me –

The type of day that I’ve had almost had me at a lost for words because I made up in my mind to do something that deemed semi – impossible in this season of my life.

I have totally created an evening of PEACE – and this is the first time that I have been able to do this is a VERY long time.

Sadly, these moments have been so long, that I don’t know if I needed to be ashamed or mad at myself for not placing my needs first. This is something that I NEVER have done before and that itself, is a travesty.

You ever notice that most men do not have the SAME issue that women have in regards to putting themselves first? As women, we are unfortunately taught and groomed to place our wants / needs last or sadly not even at all apart of situation at all.

Today, I learned the importance of me and to be honest…..”in the beginning part of the day” I felt obligated to go and do something for SOMEBODY – ANYBODY!

LOL

That’s simply crazy and the type of day that I had has been full of peace, growth, bliss and clearer vantage points of my life patterns.

The type of day that I had has me feeling spiritually strong and deserving of all things that is to come….

With that being said, certainly blogging will become apart of my daily regime again.

Friday’s Short Message


Long story short……we have to REALLY understand that God doesnt NEED our help! We have to trust Him and not use gimmicks OR any type of devices thinking our BRIGHT IDEAS will triumph over His will.

We have to learn that when God gives us instructions that HE knows what is best๐Ÿ–’……. ย Because TRUTH be told- the MORE that we try to ASSIT God ……. the more we are delaying our PROCESS to move forward and enjoy LIFE๐Ÿ’˜โค

Weight Loss Drama


Taking care of your body is so necessary but also so hard at times! Headed to the gym with a huge SMILE on face BUT a bigger one within my heart!!

Im NOT struggling or depressed about body image- HOWEVER๐Ÿ˜‰ I do desire to get these VERY unwanted pounds back off of me as soon as possible!!ย 

Like almost EVERYTHING elsr in this temporary world that i reside in…..This is yet another thing that I do have to fight for! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Šย 

Im praying with GREAT anticipation that God will assist me in losing 5o poundsโคโค

Honor Code –


Wouldn’t it be totally AMAZING to have people in your life that says things like this to you and THEY mean it?? 

We all have had some CRAZY friendships / relationships in our lives but where did ALL the honor go?

In this sadly and VERY unapologetic world that we are ALL trying to maintain our lives in…..It seems as if no one desires to honor “THEIR”………

Word……

Parents…..

Family……

Friends…

Spouses…

Themselves….but MOST importantly God….. ( big sigh )

Moments


Moments are just those little situations that happen in our lives that can make us smile or cry…. experience defeat OR triumph!!

We have the power to control ONLY ourselves and that can be either a big pill to swallow or mind boggling to even comprehend….when we are ALL so intrinsically involved with sever things and people…

We can feel that our moment is NOT inly our moment but also a beaten path of things we DID NOT feel that we deserved in 1 second…..

Then the NEXT, trying to understand why God blessed us beyond meausre with so much happiness that AGAIN….we feel we DID NOT deserve…..

Bottom line- that’s what Grace and Mercy can be summed up as….

Nonetheless, moments are the things which impact our lives …which then creates emotions that are uplifting or damaging…..

Ultimately…we decide how to manage these moments in time….and PRAY 4 the bedy.
