Where is the love Wednesday: it’s not good to change them

Hi Friends!

This is from my Bible app plan. The topic is motherhood. I completely agree with this devotional by Karen. 

Many times in a relationship, especially in a marriage, many think they can change their spouses into their “perfect image”. That’s not fair because it will cause conflict between the two. When you said “I Do” it was to all of them not just some or the parts you like of them. 

Great things do come along.. why do we struggle with patience?!

Hey friends!

With all that we pray and hope for, it’s an amazing feeling when those things come into fruition. Time and time again, we jump for joy and is over the moon for these wins. However, the wait is always the most annoying part. 
Patiences is a virtue
We know this. We understand this too. It’s just really annoying walking on egg shells or that anxiety builds up that happens while waiting. 
Is there anything that you do to help yourself during that time? I try to move my mind onto other things. I refocus my attention on positive things and just pray about it. 
Hang in there, be strong. Just remember that somehow things always seem to work out or something better will happen for you!

An Afrolicious Father’s Day recap 

In this picture, we were leaving the cemetery. We went to visit my fathers grave site. I was very emotional because this was the second Father’s Day without Daddy. 

I didn’t stay down though. We also celebrated my husband’s 3rd Father’s Day. I’m truly blessed to have him, he’s a great husband and father. He supports us and loves unconditionally. ❤️

I know with time, thing will get better. Therefore, I’ll cherish the memories shared with Daddy and enjoy the new memories with hubby and our son. 

I hope all enjoyed Father’s Day and for those in mourning, keep your head up!

It’s another chapter 

Hi, great people,
 Trust me, I know all about pain, heartache, disappointment and feeling low. The truth is, it can get better. Try your best to not stay in the whole that life has thrown you in. Even if you dig yourself into that whole, you can definitely dig yourself out. 
Ways to get out of the hole

  1. Bring positivity into your life.
  2.  Join a support group. 
  3. Keep a journal.
  4. Get counseling. 
  5. Last but not least, prayer and meditation.

The things listed above can help. I hope and pray that what you are dealing with can be seen as just another chapter not as the final chapter. You got this!!

Love,
Nicole Cherise ❤️

They’re cool to turn up with but can they stimulate your mind?

Hi great people!
A lot of people use the term “friend” too loosely these days. We yearn to find people that we can have a good time with and equally share a “not a care in the world” attitude. However, what about associating with people who can mentally have an affect on you?

Motivate my mind.. Please!
Can you relate? Are the people that you spend time with yearning for knowledge and finding truth? Or at least encouraging you to do more? 
Let me know your thoughts below 😊

Me, play victim as a black woman?

You say for me to stop making myself a victim. Ok how am I making myself a victim when you come after me?

You see me and say: “You’re  pretty for a dark skin woman” 

I tell you about my high school education and you said it was so high because of lower standards given to minority students and on other scales, I wouldn’t be considered that smart. 

You say I need to have a model physique but my thighs are too thick and rub together. Also, My post-parting belly isn’t ok.

You complain about wearing weaves but yet My hair is too kinky and nappy and should be straightened if I want to be accepted. 

I’m too loud and I’m bitch when I discuss things I’m passionate about.

If I wear a mini skirt, I shouldn’t get upset by negative attention.

No I don’t walk around with a sign that says judge me or that I pity myself. However, with your negative comments without even knowingme,  does make me wonder “am I truly playing victim as black Woman?”

Thanks,

Nicole Cherise ❤️

Not everyone is genuine


A lesson I learned and I’m continuing to understand. We live in a world with wicked people. Many are envious, jealousy and angry at us. Most times it’s for no true reason. They grow angry at our blessings. Instead of being happy, they grow sour. 

Friends, you don’t need that. Keep the grass cut low and weed out who is not worthy of your friendship. Not all are genuine.
