Wednesday Wisdom Word – 10.18.17

Sometimes we have to distance ourselves from people not because of who they are or what they’ve done or failed to do, but because of who we become when we’re connected to them. Loving people draw love out of others, same with positivity, honesty, etc. Make sure you’re around people who help you reveal everything that’s amazing about you!

Be loved. Love you. Be love.

How Mindfulness Meditation Changed My Life

For the past several months, I’ve been trying to establish a daily routine that will help me get more done, nurture my soul and maximize my time.

In real life, though, the snooze button became my best friend when the alarm went off every morning, making it a struggle to wake up at the same time every day. I also stayed up late, binge watching whatever was on Netflix or Hulu, trying to fill some type of void that I couldn’t explain. Continue reading

On the Ways of the World

For over two minutes, the moon completely covered the sun, immediately turning day into dusk.

As the sun’s corona peeked through the darkness, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

An electric energy filled my body and soul, as the thrill of joy rushed from the depths of my spirit and were released through my vocal chords, producing a shriek from a quiet, solid place. Continue reading

The Power of Renewing Your Mind

Along this journey called life, there have been plenty of times when I needed something but didn’t have what I needed to get it; or wanted something that I didn’t have the finances to purchase.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making it a point to be grateful for the income I have versus stressing over the income I lost when I left my full-time job.

I’m thankful for the fact that over the last couple of years, my income has increased, become more steady, and I’m almost bringing in as much as I was when I was working a 9-5 (or sometimes 50 plus hours a week), with less hours worked, more joy, peace and control over my life. Continue reading

What Loving Yourself Requires

The more I learn to love myself, the more I truly grasp what it means.

I used to think that loving who I am meant that I had to be perfect. I used to think that loving who I am was tied to who and how many people loved me.

I used to think that loving what I look like is defined by others’ opinions of me. I used to think that loving what I looked like had to be what the world thought was worthy of being beautiful. Continue reading

How to Allow Yourself to Feel

In life, we experience a range of emotions – from sadness to joy, disappointment, anger, elation, anxiety, fear, content, and countless others.

When we are in the midst of emotionally heavy situations – such as presidents who evoke evil, coworkers who stomp on our last nerves, illness, job loss or stress, it can be easy to try to “get over” your feelings so you can continue to function. Continue reading

Discovering, Becoming My True Self

So today I’m going to get personal. I’m going to try to be brave. I’m going to speak my truth. I’m going to free myself.

Every once in a while, I suffer from depression, anxiety takes over my mind, body, and soul, and my insecurities keep me from being who I long to be.

Day by day, I’m making an effort to push through, to see the beauty in the struggle, to discover what it looks, feels and tastes like to be me. Continue reading

How I’m Taking My Life Back

Life is a beautiful mix of pain, joy, the unknown, what we can see and can’t, life-changing moments, heart-shattering experiences and divine miracles.

Over the last few years, life has tried to break me with one family death after another, my brother going to prison, financial lack like I’ve never experienced before, intense depression and anxiety.

I’m relieved to say that the long, dark, treacherous storm is over! A rainbow of love, peace, comfort and strength surrounds me, the sun is shining bright, and everything is looking good! Continue reading
