Create your Own Story

Hi friends!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but please know that I have missed being present and your presence!

One of the last videos that I did was in reference to our Story not being finished yet and that it’s only a chapter. To piggyback off of that, we NEED to focus on creating our OWN Story.

In Romantic relationships, many of us watch romantic movies or hear love songs and we think about wanting that happily ever after. We view our family dynamics, judge our friends’ relationships and are eager for all those great experiences to become ours.

We are taught during High school to attend college for a better future and then feel defeated when life doesn’t play out that way. So much pressure of what “success” is suppose to look like in our lives doesn’t always equal how we are living.

We need to create our Own love stories and our Own Success stories. What worked for some may not work for you. Be patient, go at your own pace. The work that you put into a relationship or your work is what the universe will bring back out. Find Peace and Happiness within yourselves and go from there.

I hope this post helps and I hope we all can have peace and happiness in our own personal journeys. Thanks for reading!

The Basics.. Respect

Hi Friends! Happy NYE!!!!!

We are this close to saying goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019! I pray that you all have a safe evening and your new year kicks off to a good start.

Respect. We all chat about it and need to have it. Many have the philosophy that respect should be given while others believe that respect is earned. I believe it’s both.

As a fellow Human being I believe we should respect each other. Meaning, I should respect your space, family dynamics, culture, physical capabilities etc. Our society has gotten to a place where people can’t be themselves without someone being out of order. Many people have a target on their back just for “looking” different or being different from the marginal lines and it really sucks. So in order for you to respect me, I need to respect you as well.

On the contrary, I do believe respecting someone as an individual is to be Earned. How is this different from respecting a person as a human being? When we respect someone as a human being, that’s the outer surface. To respect someone as an individual, We have to find out about their inner surface such as their character and demeanor. Regardless of what position this person holds in our lives, it could be Family, Friends, coworkers, bosses, religious leaders and even political leaders. We view their actions, are they trustworthy? Honest? Compassionate? Or are they mean-spirited? Uncommitted? Liars? These are just few ways Respect is Earned or not Earned.

One of my hopes for the new year is that we can do better as a whole and of course individually. Let us plant these seeds for our youth so that they can be Better than Us.

Child’s love, Parent’s Love

I tell my son that I love him everyday. Many don’t feel the need to do that and would rather show it through their actions. Guess what? That’s perfectly fine. My Love languages are words of affirmation and physical touch. Therefore, I will let others know how I feel and expect the same back, to feel loved. I love to give hugs and cuddles, so of course I love that back lol. However, As a mother, I also realize that children, express their love differently and like to receive love differently.

As parents, I think it’s vital to recognize both love languages of our own and of our children. The last thing that we want is for them to feel as if that component was missing in their childhood. We need to discover the layers to our children and unlock the layers of ourselves.

How do you all feel about that?

Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!

Gratefulness…

Hey beautiful people,

You ever looked back over past situations and thought about how thankful you were because of the outcome? The hard times you experienced and how Far you have truly come and what You’ve become? I do too.

Quite often, especially when I’m in midst of the storm (as mentioned in my last post), I try to keep things in perspective and know that there is good present. Our cognitive thoughts has a big effect on us and with little reminders that our Story isn’t over yet can be helpful.

This is one reason, I’m able to still find some joy and happiness despite battling MS, and grieving for my loved ones. I know that with my faith, I’m not alone. I know that I’m not taking the Brunt of the Battle. I’m human, you’re human, we have to take it one day at a time.

I hope this helps someone today. I know what you are currently experiencing is tough but you’re tougher. It could seem like you will never find happiness but with finding Peace, happiness can follow. You have a meaning regardless of what you’ve heard. Please, hold on.

Thank you for reading!
