I am so grateful for growth and maturity. I am grateful for the light that flickers within my soul, reminding me that I have purpose.
Throughout my life, I’ve had this ongoing fear of judgment, ridicule and even success. Yes, there have been times where I’ve feared my own potential. I constantly question my abilities and compare them to others, which ultimately prevents me from fully taking advantage of the life that circulates through my veins. Have any of you ever felt this way? Felt fear of letting go and surrendering your heart to the possibilities that live in the unknown?
Over the past few months, I’ve existed in this ongoing stupor. Deep down, I felt stuck. Merely existing in this grand world and not truly living. I was idly present in this perpetual cycle of fear and doubt and wanting to be a more courageous person, but oblivious to the steps I needed to take in order to move towards purpose…MY purpose!
Until recently, I’ve never really been able to grasp and process it all. My desires, my shame, my anger, my fears, my subconscious habits, they all just existed in this Continue reading
I can sense a change taking place in my heart.
A knowing! A certainty of what needs to take place – a transformation in my spirit, a re-connection with my soul. Continue reading
God can use both stillness and chaos to shape his purpose for your life. He does not exist within the chaos, but he can use it for your good.
I can attest to the fact that sometimes life can throw you some unexpected curveballs. But one thing I’ve learned, and I’m still learning is that God is never through. Through every valley, every mountain top, thunderstorms and sunny skies, God is always working on your behalf.
When you’re in the midst of your storm
And calamity encircles the makings of your existence
Joy and peace may appear light years away
Frustration and fear attempting to smolder
What optimism was left within your soul
But still, your courage & faith must persevere Continue reading
So, I’m reading this article with the hopes of gaining some tips and nuggets to help me on my personal journey to success right. Now, before I can even dive deep in search of some quality pearls of wisdom, before I can even get my fleshly pedicured toes wet, words like “make decisions quickly” and “be decisive and take action” knock me flat on my face (Excuse me whilst I continue to pick my mouth up off the ground).
Now if you know me closely, you would know that I am a very indecisive person. What some of you may not know is that I also tend to procrastinate from time to time. (I know, I know – Shocking right!) I’ll be the first to admit that it’s very difficult for me to come to a conclusive decision. Even when I make a choice, I’m all like Continue reading
Rays of natural light caress the skin of her cheeks
As joy dances on the waves of a crisp ocean breeze
Hope now sits comfortably on the horizon
Bright almond eyes embracing new life
The salty air strokes her lungs
As memories of lemonade & yellow-orange leaves
Retell a story of fire & passion
She is his beloved wife
No more will biting of tongues
Maintain a sense of peace
She is no longer shackled to her past
Deep dimples make their way home
Thunderstorms, for the moment cease
Her heart comes first, no longer last
My heart comes first! Finally! I have come to a place where I am compelled to put me first. I am duty-bound, obliged to pick up the pieces of me that have been scattered by trials and joys, disappointments and accomplishments the same.
