I know we live during a time that bullying and people in superior roles can do a lot of intimidating to those they feel are beneath them. However, We have to continue to stand our ground while being respectful.
One thing that I’m learning, is that life is difficult and people will try to make your life difficult as well. We have to choose PEACE over anything. I don’t know about you guys but when there is no peace in my heart, I do not function well nor do I give any task my best performance. It’s just added baggage that I can’t deal with.
I remember a time that my heart would race rapidly whenever I had to speak to someone in a role superior than myself. It was until I developed my own relationship with the Lord and a lot of those fears dwindled down. In a similar post, I realized that people are people but God is God. God is the only One to Fear.
If this is hard for you, please take a breather. Remember, people have to breathe, eat, and sleep just like You. They bleed, experience heartache just like You. Regardless of the amount of money that make or where they live, we are all have a life journey and Fear isn’t an Option.

The past few weeks, I’ve observed negativity amongst people. I wasn’t involved but if I were, I’d tell the individuals to be BETTER not BITTER.
I’ve come to a realization that getting Bitter or getting “even” with folks requires so much energy. If I’m going to use any energy aka spoons (spoonies standup!), it needs to be serving a real purpose not for meaningless drama. Life is short, we all KNOW this but still continue to waste time.
If there is anything that I can leave with you all today it is to : BE BETTER because we all KNOW better.
Take Care friends, thanks for reading!

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!

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!!

Even if you are not “religious” there is nothing wrong with having a buddy who can help with your meditating or journey for peace. This keeps us grounded when we are faced with so much adversity.

We have to take a moment to just breathe and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. As I stare out the window and see the leaves fall from the trees, I suddenly had a peaceful moment.
I hope everyone enjoyed their thanksgiving day and time spent with those who matter. Just remember that there are many who wish to have half of what you have.

Every day, we are given daily reminders of how cruel and ugly things of this world are. When I was a child, my parents shielded from some things and let me be a child. Now, with the advancement of our youth, it’s hard to NOT explain to them the cruelness that awaits them. I’m saddened that I have to express to my son that to some people he will be considered a menace, some may be jealous, friends will stab you in the back, employment will expect you to work extra hard against your counterparts, and I can go on. However, I can’t focus only on the ugliness. There IS beauty.
Beauty is in the eye of a baby, who is precious and pure. The laughter of children on a playground that gives so much joy to an adult heart. The genuine love and support from your loved ones. The butterfly feeling you get from your significant other. The feeling of inner peace when you pray or meditate in your calm place. That feeling of goodness after helping those who are less fortunate.
The world isn’t perfect, especially the people living in it. We have to decide how we choose to live. Do we want to concentrate only on the ugly? Or could we make things less tainted and paint a better picture? Something to seriously think about, especially now.
