Have you ever invited someone over and just as you’re putting the finishing touches on dinner; your home; yourself, the doorbell rings? It’s like you’re ready, but not ready… If only you had a few more minutes to get everything perfect; just right; set the mood… If only you had a few more seconds to move things around; fluff up the pillows; light the candles… You yell, “One moment please”… You quickly get as much done as you can, open the door and they’re impressed with what they see… But it’s funny how they see everything that is “right”, but we only see what is “wrong”, still needs to be improve, and what appears to be out of place.
Many times we want things to be perfect and for some of you reading, you want yourself; life to be perfect… We ask for a few more minutes, (Click HERE to read more)
Morals, Expectations, Religious Beliefs, and Fear are the four walls many of you are trapped within. A prison in which your inner being is suffocating and gasping for air… You’re dying inwardly, barely surviving outwardly and each morning you dread getting out of bed because you have to be whom everyone else thinks you should be… You dress yourself in lies and facades, put on a happy face, but the entire time you’re thinking, “I wish I could just be me”. “The me” that’s not perfect, has issues, screwed up a lil bit, and “the me” who is free to be whoever and whatever they want to be…
Morals taught you who you are is wrong…. Expectations say that you are not good enough… Religious Beliefs reveals that you are not pleasing… Fear has hoodwinked you into believing who you are will be rejected… Because of these things, you are trapped and your soul is dying… All you want is to be happy and the freedom of being your authentic self, but it comes at a cost… The cost of disappointing family and friends, being perceived as a failure, not living up to whom God created you to be, and the cost of people walking away…. If only you could be you…
What I know for sure is… You only have one life to live… I’ve learned “morals” (Click HERE to read more)
Wouldn’t it be great if we lived in a perfect world? You know where there were no imperfection’s? A world where we woke up flawless?
Unfortunately, this world I speak of does not exist. The world in which we live in our differences aren’t always celebrated; appreciated and received as an asset. Many times they are pointed out as flaws; issues; problems; things we need to change; work on or improve… As you live this thing called life, you will eventually realize we all have flaws and no one is perfect. There are always going to be areas in which (Click HERE to read more)
So when are you going to take back your life? Reclaim your time? Retrieve your power? Imagination? Dreams? When are you going to grab hold of your destiny and fly?
Many of you reading today have relinquished your power to someone or some thing that shouldn’t have it… You’ve allowed fear to blind you to your potential; rob you of your ambition and to destroy your hopes for a better tomorrow… There are those of you who have allowed others to keep you from moving (Click HERE to read more)
“Dramatic”, “Clingy”, “Needy”, “Insecure” are all labels your man has tattooed on your mind… He has convinced you into believing your needs are way too much. All you’re asking for is time, attention, love… You know the things a relationship needs to survive? Yet he makes you feel like “You’re Too Much”. Ladies, have you ever considered maybe the one you’re with isn’t the one you need? That just maybe it’s not you that’s too much, but him who is not enough?
I’ve realized as horrible as COVID has been to the world, there is still a lesson for each of us… Quarantine has forced us into independence; self-reliability and hopefully it has shown many of you, just how dependent you are on (Click HERE to read more)
Today you’re struggling and contemplating going back to the thing you’ve just left… You miss what you had even though it was blocking you from what you could have… You know it wasn’t good for you, but at this very moment you want it more than you ever have… Is it because it has left you behind; doesn’t want you anymore; or could it be because you shouldn’t have it? Whatever the case may be, it has become your drug and at this very moment, you need a fix…
Going back seems much easier… It would stop the pain you’re feeling; ease your mind and give you the feeling of home… But what (Click HERE to read more)
I believe we’ve all heard “You’re too…”. What has followed those two words have crippled some; destroyed others and sad to say, killed a few. Words have power that many people underestimate… They loosely use words which are impacting the lives of people around them… I’ve had friends to share with me they’ve been told “You’re too fat to wear…”; “You’re too ugly to be with a man that cute”; “You’re too worldly to be in ministry” and lastly, “You’re too old to…”.
For the better part of my life, I was also told “You’re too…” and here recently I’ve even been told “You’re too old to…”. Maybe ten years or so ago I would have been impacted by those words and would have adjusted my life to fit into the box created by someone who is living in a box smaller than mine. But I’ve grown, I’m not that dude anymore… What I’m too old for is living my life based on anyone else’s expectations; perceptions and ideas… I’m too old to not wear what I want; go where I want to go; say what (Click HERE to read more)
Drowning is what you would probably call it… With each minute that passes it feels as though you’re sinking deeper into debt; problems; confusion and drama; sickness and pain… You’ve asked for a life line, but God hasn’t thrown it out yet… Right now you’re beyond needing a blessing, you need a miracle…
Did you know miracles do not happen in normal situations? Nor do they happen when we are “living our best life”… During these times because things are going good in life, we label it as a “blessing”; “the overflow”… Miracles happen in desperate moments… Moments in which we are discouraged and (Click HERE to read more)
Throughout my life I’ve experienced love in various ways… I’ve been “Crazy In Love”; “Happy In Love”; “Comfortable In Love”, but I’ve never been “Sadly In Love”. To be honest, this is the love I’m looking for… Let me break it down for you…
“Crazy In Love” is the love in which toxic behaviors were at the forefront… Blinded by my emotions, I allowed so many things to happen I later regretted. This was the time when my privacy was violated; insecurities from both parties were at an all-time high, and times when I vowed each year “I can’t do this anymore”, yet I found myself going back and drinking the poison.
“Happy In Love” is the love in which (Click HERE to read more)
