New Beginnings

 

A pencil begins unsharpened, but only becomes sharpened when a writer desires to create.  If the pencil is to break, what was previously created is not altered. The broken end is left and the creator has to decide to either leave it broken, or resharpen it. This is true with life. If you break, you still have the ability to resharpen and create. The benefit now is that your life will carry your experiences in beautiful grooves. True creators do not allow their obstacles to hinder them. They use them to grow, develop and become advanced.

It’s been a While…

…more than just a few months and the world is changing. I’m changing. Life is pushing forward. In the past few months, I’ve experienced loss, love and growth. People tell you “Happy Birthday” every year, but I think life would be a lot better if they dropped some wisdom on you for your special day. I realized a lot while I have been gone. I’ll share a few:

  1. Loss doesn’t always occur when someone is dead and sometimes that form of loss can hurt more than a death. My aunt passed away a few months ago… she knew her time was near but kept it to herself. She didn’t want others to suffer with her. She is at peace. I lost a really close friend. She’s still alive and I feel re-born.  
  2. Growth is something that we have to work on every single day. There’s so much happening in the world. You have to watch what information you expose yourself to and how you view yourself all while continuing to build your character. 
  3. The world is changing. I’m celebrating my 24th birthday in the middle of a pandemic. I have been inside for over 30 days. Ironically, through this time, I have become so close to my family and more importantly – Jesus.
  4. Sometimes I forget how far I’ve come and I forget to look at the big picture. I believe if you are a true believer in Christ, you catch subtle hints of his presence and Jesus re-grounds you at your lowest and lifts you to your highest. 

This is the first year of my life where I feel like I’m actually making an effort to read the Bible. I’m at peace with the past. This blog post alone was so healing. I’m in a good place. 

 

Humbled.

Writing is a blessing and a gift! Luckly, I can pick up my blog whenever I choose… Whenever I need an extra dose of authentic mental healing. 

Throughout the past few months, I’ve been living and trying to figure out life; all while maintaining my mental, spiritual and social life. This week, I hit a wall. Not sure if my hormones contributed to this a whole lot, but this week, I had it!

Alignment.

It’s been a while. 

I started writing this blog post weeks ago, but it’s been super difficult to tell an “interesting story”. I’ve honestly been very happy and full of joy within the last few months. I think my most creative writing comes out through pain. Lately, I’ve been surviving. I’ve been living. I’ve been growing. I’ve been teaching mysef things about myself. I am at peace with myself, but I am also pushing myself towards reaching higher highs. 

First and foremost, I do not know a lot of things. Strange right? lol The more I learn, the more I realize the things I have yet to learn. Sometimes, my blogs give off the impression that I think I am perfect, but I’m not; I am okay with not knowing it all.

Lately, I’ve been rewarding, disciplining, forgiving and most importantly, loving myself.

I am in a strange era in life where I’m trying to figure it all out for myself. It is the most beautiful and tough transition I have ever went through. I am making decisions that not only make myself happy, but my family as well. My focus is on today, tomorrow and the future. I am holding myself accountable for the decisoins I make; and making sure that the decisoins I make are in line with my aspirations. I am holding myself accountable for reaching my full potential and becoming the person that God has called me to be. 

Sometimes, I look at growth as not enough. There are things that I want, but I have to pay special attention on remembering what I already have. I am more than just a goal-seeker. I am more than just a person on a journey. My health is important. So while I am acheiving my goals, I will also focus on appreciating right where I am.

In the next era of my life, everything must go.

My brothers and sisters, we have to make room for our happiness. I am emptying myself of depression, negativity and pain. I welcome our creator’s fruit into my spirit. I welcome peace. Connecting to him, I have hope and faith in a beautiful future. 

I can do anything. You can do anything. WE can do anything that we set in our hearts to do!

Do not allow all of your hope and faith to be taken from you. Through life we pick up habits that we have to get rid of before moving into a new season in our life. Sometimes, God “moves” in order for us to move and follow him. 

How hungry are you to enter into new dimensions in your life?

The person that God has called you to be is deep down inside of you. 

Birds Calling

I woke up.

I set a timer for 10 minutes.

I sat up and closed my eyes.

I inhaled through my nose and released each breath through my mouth.

I saw sunlight underneath my eyelids.

I heard birds chirping a beautiful song.

I felt the first spring breeze on my face.

I thanked God for another day.

I felt my body lighten.

I meditated.

As I finished, I heard the sound of a car engine roar.

The start of that car was also the start to my day.

Let it be marvelous.

Altering

I’m constantly bending to break through the box.

It served as protection in my adolescence.

It was until recently that I chose my growth over any wall I’ve created…

Woman of Love

What truly has value cannot be seen.

Maturity and strength are created through the intangible.

To be spiritually strengthened is to be able to endure whatever life may throw at you.

One day you can have it all and the next day, it could all be wiped away.

 

If everything you valued was wiped away, would you have enough on the inside to press forward? …Or would you sink?

Woman of Power

There is nothing more powerful than the love of a woman.

She is divine in her own right.

She breaks the chain and creates generational blessings.

She is after God’s own heart.

Her beauty is in her good works. Read More

Woman of Grace

I created this blog over a year ago because I truly felt that I was a crappy writer. There were times (and still are) when I can’t seem to express myself with the correct words. I’ve always been a little more reserved at first – but there have always been several layers to my personality. The main reason I created this blog was to give my mind a healthy space to come alive.

Reality

There are so many things I have learned,

But there are so many things I have yet to experience.

The reality is that I am in survival mode.

Standing in the Mirror

As I stood in the mirror, I traced every curve and groove on my body from head to toe. I saw my body and only thought how beautiful it was. Read More
