Life. Moves. On.

Never stop showing your spouse how much you love them.

I’ve been recently listing to an audio book that focuses on how we all perceive, receive, and accept love differently. I’ve been so intrigued on the topic because of all the friends I’ve gained through this blog. Relationships are such a large part of who we are and I’ve noticed, as much as we deny it, we all want and strive for real love. At dinner last night, I noticed things in my other half that I’ve learned to value more with age. Those things are eye-contact, undivided attention, and interest in my day. No two loves are the same, but I feel it is important to acknowledge that no matter how much we grow, evolve, and change....the littlest things always go a long way.

Path of least resistance

Many years ago, I gained a strength within me that made all the difference in how I went about life. It is something we are all born with, taught, but easily forget. It is the God forsaken right to CHOOSE how we want to feel day in and day out. When times feel stressful, we naturally like to take the path of least resistance. The one that will get us from point A to B, with the least amount of hurdles, twists, and turns. The truth is- those climbs, steep hills, and rough roads are the very moments can be where making the right choice makes all the difference. To reap great results in life, you have to try hardest when you don’t feel like it. Take the road less traveled.

After a fight

"Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. Who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight."


You’re deserving of the most delicious kind of love there is. The nurturing kind. The uplifting, loving, hopeless kind. The sort of love that keeps you wanting more, yet somehow brings you enough fulfillment. It’s not about finding the perfect person. Its also not about finding someone to complete you. You are complete alone. It’s about finding the person that makes your days sweeter, brightens your smile when you receive their texts, and reminds you how damn deserving you are of this amazing kind of love.

Life Motto

Posted on January 8, 2018 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

"I care more about my relationship with my inner being than anything else. If I'm not in alignment with myself, I have nothing to offer anyone."


My life motto is simple. “I’ll take care of me for you if you take care of you for me.” Supporting, encouraging, and rooting for your spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend should be a given. However, it is not your job to do things for them. You have a lot to take care of on your own-#1 being your mental health. No one can give you enough love, fulfillment, or confidence until you feel it for yourself first. When you do, you learn to distinguish the difference between feelings and your thoughts. Don’t let your feelings ever control your thoughts, mind, or have the power to break you. Why? Feelings are always temporary. Your mindset is not.

Pick yourself up

"Learning to pick yourself up after going through shit is

such an important thing that no one ever teaches you."


Better yet, being your own hero. You don’t need to wait for Prince Charming, a knight in shining armor, or a hero. Pick your beautiful self up, straighten your crown, and remember your worth.

Happy 4th Birthday, Bubba!

Four years ago, I was in a very different place than I am today. I was freshly single after a four year relationship and felt completely lost. I no longer knew who I was and also played the victim card. I was very vulnerable and whenever something occurred, I would ask, “Why me?” Not too long after, I came across a dog at a pet shop that I wanted soooo badly. She seemed like the perfect fit for me. After applying to rescue her and learning that I didn’t get her, I was crushed. Already feeling rejected, it was the last thing my heart could handle. I was learning an important lesson that I wouldn’t realize until a few months later and that is that she wasn’t my dog. Nope, a cute, silly, and troubled dog named Bubba was. I would meet him exactly a few weeks later and adopting him was so easy, it was effortless! Since that day and everyday after, my dog, also my best friend, has gifted me with life lesson after life lesson. He helped me find my passions again and gave me a healthy outlook on life. That is to trust that the right things come to you at the right time and never a day early. I have a quote written and placed in a frame right next to his photo in my room that I look at whenever I need a little reminding that things will make sense one day, even if they do not now. It’s a quote @createthelove shared before and it really resonated with me. It reads, “I hope you have the courage to live the kind of life that gets you to the place we are to meet, and don’t spend it loving someone else with half your heart, because you were afraid I wouldn’t show up.” Indiana Jones uncovered the cult of the mummy’s crypt, and so did I...four years ago! Happy 4th birthday to the best treasure I have found. I love being your Mummy. �� #whorescuedwho #indiannajones #halloween #lifelessonsfrommydogbubba #trust

Be with you.

"DON'T BE FLATTERED THAT HE MISSES YOU. HE SHOULD MISS YOU. YOU'RE DEEPLY MISSABLE. HOWEVER, HE'S STILL THE SAME PERSON WHO JUST BROKE UP WITH YOU. REMEMBER, THE ONLY REASON HE CAN MISS YOU IS BECAUSE HE'S CHOOSING, EVERY DAY, NOT TO BE WITH YOU."


Don’t ever doubt your uniqueness, your amazingness...your rarity. There’s a lot of people in this world, but there’s only one you. I’ve seen many women leave the value of their worth in the hands of people incapable of ever knowing what they’ve got. No one is going to come and rescue you...teach you your worth. Even if I tried, I couldn’t. It’s up to you to dig deep, find the traits that you love, and even the ones you don’t so much. It’s up to you the mend the pieces that are tangled and learn to love them for what they are...pieces of YOU. That’s what makes you beautiful after all. Know your worth, princess. Know what you bring to the table. Know that you’r

Currently.

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 oftentimes 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 whenever times are tough and remember your purpose. It is what will fuel your fire. This Tuesday, keep in mind that, "If you are willing to do more than you are paid to do, eventually you will be paid to do more than you do."

Choose her.

"The woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, and material things...

Choose her over everthing."

Have you ever looked back at a string of events to realize none of it was random? That everything that led you to your current situation was necessary for you to endure...the good, the bad, the ugly. Some events are meant to teach you to be appreciative, some for you to learn your worth, and sometimes to teach you who isn’t worth it. Nonetheless, they always teach you something. I’ve recently realized something interesting that has occurred in my life and that is a pattern. Yup, a string of events that occurred twice that have brought me full-circle. What I can tell you from these events is that I am extremely glad that some things didn’t work out the way I once wanted them to. Had they have been mine before, I probably would not have valued them like I do today. I’m in a different mindset, different place in my life to realize the value of things better. Like good people. With time, maturity, and greater life lessons, you begin to realize who’s worth it, who never was, and who will always be. Thankful for the lessons...always.

Blooming

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT HER IS THAT SHE BLOOMS WHETHER YOU WATER HER OR NOT.

WHETHER YOU GIVE HER LIGHT OR NOT.

SHE EXISTS WITHOUT YOUR EXISTENCE.


I wish more women knew that they didn’t need a man to define their worth. That they are enough. That being single doesn’t mean lonely or alone. I wish they could see what I see...someone who is simply beautiful. �� �� �� Ladies, please don’t think that because you’re single it defines who you are as a person. Being single is not a curse. Enjoy your journey...even if it doesn’t make sense today. But most importantly, learn to water your own garden and be nice to it. Water it with compliments, love, and nurture it as if it relied heavily on only your words. What would you say? The way you speak to yourself, your soul, prepares you of the kind of relationships you’ll allow in your garden. Remember, you’re a rose that’s rare and not everyone will see your worth. Some will fear your thorns and some will prefer a different color. That’s okay. All that matters is what YOU think of your garden. So, let me ask you again. How do you speak to your garden? Is it growing or in desperate need of TLC?
