The long way

"The comeback is always stronger

than the setback."


I genuinely believe that before things become great, they fall apart. We feel defeated, lost, confused and unable to move forward. It is in these moments that our strength is tested most. It is in these moments that we are reminded how strong we are. Above all, it is in these moments we gain our wings. So, let go of all you think you have to be and remember who YOU ARE. You're badass & this is only the beginning. #getitgirl

I want to be myself.

"I do not want to be liked. I want to be myself."


A few years ago, I remember watching Katy Perry's movie in theaters and falling in love with her heart, goofy personality and free spirit. She reminded me a lot of the me that only those who really know me see. The silly, dorky, clumsy, hopeless romantic person I am. I cried when she got dumped while on tour, laughed when she went to the cat museum and felt hopeful when I heard her explain to her fans that she'd just been heartbroken and continued to sing. Recently, she filmed a live 96 hour stream, sharing raw footage of her behind the scenes. I haven't seen it yet, but I did see a short video of her crying about wanting to forget the "Katy Perry" image people have come to love. It's so empowering to see someone realize that they no longer love a person they once were and are ok and accepting of being someone new. Pain changes us and it also evolves us into a new person. Sometimes in the journey of losing who we were and finding who we are, we feel lost and alone. If you ever have doubts, need a friend or want to share your worries, email me. You should never feel alone and know that in the end, you're going to be ok. You've just got to keep your head up and remember, you were perfect then, you're perfect now and you'll still be perfect later. You're allowed to change.

Self-care

"Self-care is how you take your power back."


I believe hat self-love comes in many forms. Learning to love yourself has to be one of the most challenging, dynamic and eye opening experiences in my opinion. We're not taught how to love ourselves and often grow our perceptions of ourselves by the opinions of others. Today, I have a greater appreciation of loving myself. I've learned the importance of knowing myself and not allowing the opinion of others to take away from how I see myself. Be sure to fall in love with yourself first, love. 

Better people.

If there is one thing we can always be, it is better. 


Throw caution to the wind.

If granted the opportunity, would you want to know what the future holds for you? Who you will be, what you will become? Who will stay, who will leave, and who will come? Would you want to know? I think one of the greatest reasons why we repeat mistakes is because we're afraid to try new things, wander away from what we know. But what if everything you've ever wanted was just on the other side of fear?

A comfort zone is a beautiful place, my dear, but nothing ever grows from there. Throw caution to the wind & explore new paths.

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

Posted on February 22, 2017 at 12:55 PM Comments comments (0)

"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.
