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.

Protection

Your Inner Peace has so much value.

Many will try to get close to you, they will try to disturb your energy. You cannot let them.

We battle things that the naked eye can’t see. We battle against ourselves at times too.

With that being said, do not let anyone or anything take your Peace from you. Not everyone is deserving.

Protect your mind, body and soul. Not everyone is cheering for Your success but it’s more so for your downfall. Think about it.

Thanks for reading.

Where is the love Wednesday: can a person truly be in love with two people or is it in Lust with two people instead?

Hey friends! Happy Hump day!

I want to discuss a topic that I’ve always questioned when I hear people speak about being in love with two people. No, this has never been me. So of course my stance is Not bible nor how things should be. I’m just curious, is it really Love or Lust?

Love… a feeling, an act that is shown in different ways and often communicated amongst many in intimate relationships (in this case romantic ones). Some feel that when you love someone their needs become a priority just as your own.

Lust.. a feeling and an act as well from chemistry between individuals (usually sexual). Some could say when your in Lust with someone it’s solely your needs and wants only.

As a Millennial, I notice that our generation and of course others have a problem with communicating, being vulnerable enough to allow someone to come in our inner circle, trust and wanting committed relationships. There are so many options : remain single, date around, get married, get divorced, remarry etc…

Now, with stating some of the issues that people face in dating/courting, is it possible for someone who has a hard time being vulnerable, to truly be in love with two people? I do believe you can be attracted to two people at the same time and like them for different reasons but Love?

As I said, my feelings are my feelings and not law. What do you guys think? Has this been you? Have you been in love with two people at once? Let me hear your thoughts.

Peace….. Happiness

So much weighs on our minds.

Too much weighs on our hearts.

For many of us, we have to take everything that we deal with, one day at a time.

All the tasks aren’t getting done due to us being overwhelmed with the many distractions that get in the way.

How do we overcome this? How do we find balance? How do we find happiness? My suggestion is to get Peace first.

Having peace is vital and it can help us see the “BIG” picture clearer. We could possibly find solutions to things that are problematic. With Peace comes Acceptance and Happiness will follow not too far behind. Have you struggled with finding happiness? Do you believe you have peace in your life? I’m working on it and pray to get there one day! I hope the same for you all as well.

Feel Good Friday: I love helping people

For the Love of the People.

I love connecting with people and helping them. It brings joy to my heart knowing that I set an impact on someone’s Life.

In the past few weeks, I’ve met new people. Some were from work and others were fellow MS Warriors. I’ve also have made new connections with people from views of my YouTube videos.

Maybe this is my purpose? Being a voice for those who are unable to share their struggle. Being that ear to listen when some feel that there is no one to listen. That support when many feel they are alone.

Therefore, thank you to my new pals. Thank you to my supporters. Thank you to the people who follow or have subscribed to my sites. I appreciate you all more than you will ever know. You all play a vital role in my search for Purpose and Healing.

Helping others, makes me feel good on this “Feel Good Friday”.

The weather

As a child, I never quite understood how older people could tell it was going to rain or when they said “It’s cold, I can feel it in my bones”. It’s funny how life happens because now I say similar things!

Since being diagnosed with MS, my body lets me know if the humidity is high, if it will rain, and if the temperature is very cold. I experience leg weakness during this time, numbness in toes and sometimes very painful nerve pain. As I type this post, my left big toe is curing numb and I’m having nerve pain in both legs. It really sucks.

However, the show has to still go on. On days like this, I still have to be wifey, mommy and assistant supervisor at work. I pray to God for strength, as tears may flow down my cheeks and slowly get it together. I know there are others who experience this and more. There are other warriors with physical ailments and mental issues that can be thrown off due to the weather.

When it rains, it pours. I wish, I could cut back some of the storms, but unfortunately that can’t happen and that’s Life. How we choose to manage IS up to us.

We can let the weather take over us and our spirit or we can dance in the rain and view the rainbow that follows.

Where is the love?-Sometimes the bees in your life don’t deserve honey!

I know we have heard the phrase, “you attract more bees with honey than vinegar”. I actually live by this, Most of the time. The issue that presents itself is that my kindness and sweet gestures are often taken for granted. Some people just are takers and it doesn’t matter if you give them your last cent, they will continue to demand more of you.

I’m slowly but surely learning that folks are undeserving of my kindness, time and patience. So, I will continue to be me but with better discernment.

Friends, do you ever feel this way? How do you handle it? Let me know below!

Thanks for reading!

The easiest way to Learn..

Is by Listening.

We constantly want to talk or talk over people but rarely do many just sit back and listen.

When we listen, we learn and observe from the one speaking. Think about it.. in a class room you are able to receive the information if you are being quiet. In a relationship of any sort, you would only know a person’s view by listening to them. Even when we are doing some soul searching, we listen to that inner voice for peace.

Do you listen or only hear when someone talks? By listening, you can receive knowledge, opportunities for growth and much more.

I, too, am learning the importance of Learning through Listening and I hope you do the same.
