Before you let a man sweep you off your feet...

Before you let a man sweep you off your feet

be sure he is prepared to catch you when you fall.

You might be too much woman for him.

You might be too independent.

Too smart. Too much of a catch.

He may not be ready, for the weight of how beautiful you are.

How gorgeous you are.

How strong you are.

He may not be ready yet.

You, have to be prepared...

to be yourself regardless of if he can carry you or not.

So it's important for you to know, his past.

His attributes. His strengths.

If he's prepared to handle how beautiful you are.

How gorgeous... How so awesome you are.

So, I'm here to tell you...

That it's super important for you to take your time.

Don't just listen to sweet nothings.

Don't just listen to words, watch actions.

Because you're too fragile to be dropped.

Your heart is way too valuable to be mishandled.

and your brain don't need a bruise.

So before you let a man, sweep you off your feet...

Be sure he is strong enough.

Secure enough in himself .

Be sure he has the proper amount of self-esteem... self-confidence

to handle who God created you to be.

Conscious Energy

Posted on April 17, 2017 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hold on to every genuine person you find.

This generation has people driven by ego, money and status.

As a result, good souls are ruined daily.

Keep your head dup and be conscious of the energy you give out and connect with.


"When you find someone who sparks that fire in you, who ignites your passions, shares your dreams, who makes you the best version of yourself, hold onto them and don't let go. Fight for them, make them smile and love them so fiercely they will question whether they have ever been loved before."

Easy?

I think one of the greatest challenges for people in relationships is deciding when to try more or just walk away. I say relationships because there's already a sense of "commitment" there. We feel obligated to try in fear or being portrayed as someone who just gave up. Then there is a side of us that feels like we've given our all and that we couldn't possibly do more. I've heard people say they want something easy after being in a relationship that required a lot of work. Then I've heard from those who are in a relationship that's "easy", that they're bored, need something more stimulating or have lost interest. What do you define as easy? What do you define as difficult?

Are we just so used to the chaos that when there isn't any, we feel bored? Must there be madness to be lust?

Pride vs. love

"Love doesn't mean you don't fight. It means that when the fighting stops, the love is still there."

People may disagree, but I think there's different forms of love. I don't think a love for a child is equal as to loving a spouse. Personally, I feel they are different, thus making the statement in my eyes false. I think a love for a child is far more sacrificial and is done despite how many arguments is had. I think in a spouse, there needs to be a greater level of purpose behind arguments and far greater level of respect. It takes two to do make love as it does to make up. It takes two to want it enough to put aside pride. Choose wisely.

Stand Tall.

I recently received an email from a follower wondering/asking when to walk away from what feels like a dead relationship. This question is always challenging to answer, because I think we ultimately are the only ones who know when we're ready. Then I remember to ask myself, are we ever ready? There are some things you can prepare for in life, then there are other things that are just kind of thrown in your path and you can't just ignore them. They are roadblocks and effect the journey. I've learned that this is okay. It's ok to hit these roadblocks; almost necessary. I think what's difficult to grasp is that the things that are holding us from moving forward are the same people who once helped us feel free, happy and unstoppable. Yet, they're now in our way. It's even weirder how the person that once allowed you to drop your guard is the same person who gives you 100 other reasons to put it back up. You're going to hit roadblocks in life, but it should never be from someone on your team. Sweetheart, know your worth. Know what you bring to the table and remember what kind of person you said you'd never settle for. Be brave, be unstoppable and don't be afraid of taking the journey alone. A woman standing alone is not waiting for you to save her. Walk alone if you must, but never settle for less than you deserve because baby, you're worth it. #loveyourself #neversettle #mediocre #journey

Flower Crowns

Posted on January 10, 2017 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)
When I was younger, I used to pick flowers at the park and make flower crowns with my cousin. We were just little girls with greater dreams than we could imagine. Sometimes we'd pick #dandelions and make wishes in hopes they'd come true. It's funny to me, now, that sometimes the things we wish and hope are merely fantasies that we've fooled ourselves to believing are dream worthy. As an adult, I realize that many of the things I once hoped for in a partner have changed. The idea of having a knight in shining armor sounds appealing, until you realize masculinity is not always defined in looks. It's in character- how one carries themselves, responds in times of hardships and most of all, above everything- how they ALWAYS treat you, despite what mood they're in. I see guys act out from anger and to me, it's the greatest sign of weakness. Seeing a boy hit, shout or belittle a woman is the greatest indication to me that he's not a man. Personally, no matter how much people "change," I can't forget what they've done. Call me unforgiving, but I choose to see that of all the flowers we can pick, why pick one that's going to leave us feeling rotten. You can only grow and become better with those who you surround in your garden, darling. No need to have relationships that will hinder your ability to reach the sunshine and grow.

Every master was once a beginner.

Everyone "starts" somewhere and remember that no one is you, and THAT is your power. Stay humble as ever, but know your value and what you bring to the table... in work, life and your relationships. Always improve yourself, continue learning and never settle for mediocre. "The dream is free, the hustle is sold separately." Happy Thursday. 

Destination

"Repeat after me: My current situation is not my final destination."


Someone once told me, "If God keeps opening the doors for you, Shima, keep walking through them." It was so powerful and reminded me that often times we forget that we've overcome everything we've been through up until this point and we will continue to. Find the inner warrior within you when ever times are tough and remember your purpose. It is what will fuel your fire.

Inner Battle

"Shoutout to those fighting a battle that no one understands or knows about. Stay strong and keep going."

Psychology is interesting to me. Have you ever heard the term, cognitive dissonance? It is when we believe something is true, the less likely we are to believe that its opposite is true, even in the face of clear evidence that shows we are wrong. There is a disconnection between what we believe in our minds and what we experience in reality. I think that this effects us in life so greatly because no matter the facts, we've made a pre-conceived decision or perception of the situation in our minds. This already made belief may be what's holding you back from living in happiness. May it be that you have decided you'll never succeed, find love or peace. You see, by creating the mindset to fail, lose or not "win," even if opportunity knocked on your door for real love, commitment, success- you wouldn't be able to see it. You've built an image and choice in your mind of what that is, subconsciously. Today, I ask you to share with a good friend or spouse something that you'd like to have your perception changed on. Whether it is that all men cheat, you can't get into Med school, or whatever- hear yourself say it out loud and ask yourself, "Am I benefiting myself by thinking this?" Change starts within, my dear. We're all fighting inner demons, voices that tell us we're no good, not enough or need to do better. I'll tell you this, you're more than enough- you're the best. Go get em, tiger. I believe in you.
