How do We See Ourselves?

Hi Friends!

I was reading from the Bible app and this was a screenshot of one of the devotionals. This is a struggle for myself and I’m sure for many of you reading. The issue of How we see ourselves vs how God(or your spiritual self) sees us.

I’ve created this tape of negative thoughts and it is hard to erase. No one in particular put it there but it does exist. I believe in order for us gain Peace in our lives, we have to change our cognitions and behaviors.

We can achieve this goal by performing daily affirmations, prayer, and meditation. Will it be easy? No. However, anything worth having will require hard work and dedication.

Why not experience The joys of life besides the unfortunate struggle? Why should we only indulge in self pity and the “woe it’s me” attitude? Instead, make a Decision to want more and SERVE more. Things will get better for us friends, we just need the time to believe it. 😊

Thanks for reading and sharing!

My little earthly Angel SVJ

Hi friends! How’s it going? Things on my end are ok. Ups and downs just like everyone else. I’m still a work in progress so bare with me 💁🏾‍♀️

Today, I’m home with my little guy because he’s on winter recess from school. I just had one of my many moments and he smiles and hand me one of my journals with a pen.

I sat there in amazement. I felt, at that moment, SVJ was delivering a message from God. He saw me weeping about life after tragedy. He knows my heart and what’s been weighing heavy on my mind, and soul.

Life after tragedy has been difficult. A part of me left when my loved ones went to be with the Lord. However, I know they would want me to live. In fact, as a child, my father always said, “Baby, when I go, you have to go on because Life goes on”. I hated those conversations then and still have a tough time handling it now.

Thank you SVJ for being my earthly Angel to deliver this message. I can promise God, my family, friends and myself that I won’t give up or give in. This will take time, but Living in search for Peace is what I’m going to do!

Thanks for reading friends!!

I’m still Reflecting on myself (and taking personal time) but here is something to remember and consider. Even though you have been to hell and back, you are going to SOAR!

Please don’t forget this. I’m going to say this affirmation daily until it’s a reality and I hope you all can do the same!

Check you guys soon! Thanks for reading!

Take a Breather…

Hi Friends!

With all the hustle and bustle that we all have going on, sometimes we have to remember to slow down. When we are constantly on the go, with no pauses, it can bring out a lot of anxiety. Therefore, take a breather or a moment to woooo saaaa!


No worries friends, you got this!! Take that extra time for the snooze button, take a two minute walk, meditate/ pray, blow bubbles! Do what it takes to help, YOURSELF!

Thanks for Reading!

Did you guys start working towards any of your goals? Did you make new resolutions? Let me know below! ❤️

Money isn’t everything

There are things in Life that money can’t buy. You’re presence, support, and respect for others will leave lasting memories that people can hold on to. We live in a such a fast pace, digital world and sometimes we tend to take for granted the precious gift of Time and Life.

Your word is your Bond

If it’s one thing that irks me, it’s someone that doesn’t live up to their word. People say things in the heat of the moment, make promises that they know they will not keep, and just talk to talk. So, how do we handle this?

First off, we have to lead by example. You can’t complain about others if you don’t apply the same principles. Many people want so much but don’t put in half of the work. If you know you can’t do something, do not commit to it. Be honest within yourself and to others.

Second, try not to have high expectations, but remain hopeful. I realized that the more expectations that I have with someone, sometimes, I was highly disappointed. I believed every word and promise. I guess it was naive of me to do that because I know that no one is perfect. I always kept that sense of hope that if I did my best to uphold my word that others would do the same for me. Selected individuals DID indeed live up to their word which in return forced me to do better also.

Friends, do you experience this also? Have expectations of others and get let down? Or have you made broken promises? If so, what did you do to handle it better? Let me know below!

Thank you Sza for the Reminder

This is one of my favorite songs from Sza. “Pretty Little Birds” is so soulful and speaks to me on so many levels. Check out these lyrics:

No matter what is expected of us… No matter how many times we fall.. No matter if it seems like the End is near… there is still someone seeing your beauty, someone is willing to fly with you.

Motivation can come when you least expect it

Happy Sunday Friends!

As a Millennial, we are constantly in search of instant gratification. We want to do More in the world, but we are also very impatient. As the saying goes “Patience is a virtue”, we hear it go in one ear and out the other.

What I do find is that motivation can happen when you are Not looking for it. It can be from hearing a sermon from church, reading an article from your favorite blogger/writer, watching a movie or even hearing someone’s personal story. Even a conversation with a best friend may leave you inspired and he/she may never know it.

Opportunities may present themselves and sometimes we can’t see it as a passion. Truth is, there is always a lesson to learn and room for growth. Try to keep your eyes open but also your heart as well. You never know how new choices can produce wonderful benefits in your life!

Have a great, blessed day Friends!
