Loving Who You Are

In today’s society women are not in love with themselves. Many are in love with the idea of loving self, but they do not understand what it really means to love self. Some feel that by having a man it means that they know how to love. There are some women who believe that if they are beaten by their men, she is being loved. Why is it that we do not understand what LOVE is? Is it because we were never shown by the women before us? Is it the influence of television and media that says women should objectify themselves in order to find love?

I believe that all women, young and old, not matter the race, size, height, etc., should learn to love self. Once we learn to do this, no one will be able to tell us who we are, how we should look, what type of job we should have, how we should dress. Once we learn to love ourselves, we will be a force to be reckoned with! Once we learn to move on from pasts hurts and realize that our past does not determine the outcome of our futures, we will be able to set the path for future generations.

This is the first blog of many. As you read this, think about where you are and where you want to be. After reading this, take the time to look in the mirror and smile, and tell yourself that you are beautiful. Let today be the first day of your new life. A new beginning for a new you. Although  I do not know all of you, I still embrace you as my sister! You are beautiful my sister and today is the day that you begin to embrace your beauty and love yourself, every flaw and all, love yourself. Now go ahead take a look in the mirror, smile and hug yourself and tell yourself that you are beautiful and you are loved, if not by anyone else, know that you are loved by God!

Thank you for reading and Be Blessed!

An open letter to my family

For those who really know me, you know that I am a very private person. I do not share personal things about myself. If I share anything on Facebook it will, pictures of my family, things about my children's silly behavior, etc., but nothing really personal. This time I am doing things a little different. I have found that it's best to give people their roses while they are still alive. I want my family to know who they are to me. I do not want to have to express this at a funeral or I pass away and never have the opportunity to tell them any of these things. I want to talk with my family and express myself to them in this open letter.

I know many of you reading this will wonder why would I put anything concerning the family on the internet? I know you will ask, why didn't you just tell us this over the phone? I am doing it this way because I want to express myself to you in a way that you all have never seen me before. First off, I want to say that I love you all. In one w…

Sometimes You Gotta Faith It Til You Make It

I have gone through so much from the last time I wrote a post! I opened and closed a boutique, I have a second child who is now 1, who was diagnosed with double hearing loss, I attend a new church (been there since 2013) and I am quitting my job so that my husband and I can start our business together. In the midst of all of these transitions, my faith has definitely been tested. But I can honestly say that through each transition, I have grown so much. I know more about myself and I have learned to appreciate my experiences (the good and the bad). I know that with the next chapter I write, I will have endured and grown so much and it's with my faith that I know I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength to get through! I know that someone reading this right now maybe wondering, why you are going through your trials. Or maybe you're wondering when will you to catch a break? I am here to tell you that it is your faith during the tough times that will make you …
