Hey Pretty Baby Are You Ready for Me?!

Watch out world and get ready for me! I’m a woman filled with creativity. Boy am I filled with mental energy lately. Like bursting at the seams and about to erupt. yeah, that kind of mental energy. My physical energy is on the up and up as well but the energy I’m talking about tonight is a different type of energy. It’s this amazing energy to write, create, design, and share. This amazing energy is coming from several directions. Most of it is because of my increasing faith and desire to serve God. I’ve opened a beautiful floodgate of positive…

Make Your Own Path

2016 has been all about motivating myself. It is easy to let the world get you down. I know I’m guilty of a bad mood or two (200, who’s counting). in 2016, I decided that motivating myself meant I was going to push my blogging, compile my poetry, and document my spiritual journey. these things are all areas that make me happy. In 2016, I’m making my own path while learning to take one day at a time. I’m also being as motivated as possible in spite of the daily life circumstances that can drag me down. It’shard to not…

Love is a Garden

Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV). Love is Patient and Love is Kind I think it is safe to say that most Christians are familiar with Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV). Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they…

I’m Covered

In a previous post, I wrote about the miraculous changes that have been occurring in my life. This post is the story of how I arrived at the point of a miraculous change. What a journey I have been on for the past several months. It all started over the summer when some health events brought me worry and anxiety. I was praying my typical prayers. I had been praying the same prayers for days, months, weeks, and years. The same prayers that were intended to soothe my fears but these prayers did not soothe my anxiety. I was praying what…

A New Day

I don’t know that words can truly capture what I want to type tonight. I intend to write about my journey back to God soon but tonight I felt I had to quickly capture what just took place in my life. It is a Monday night but it is not a basic Monday night. It’s a New Beginning, A New Day, A Clean Slate, A Fresh Start, A Renewed Spirit, and A Renewed Mind. I went into a service with a desire to hear from God. I’ve been talking to him for quite some time now and struggling with some…

Don’t Worry

Worry. What a powerful little word. Today I’ve been thinking about worry. Mainly because I have a health situation that is causing me worry. I’ve been consumed with worry, anxiety, dread, fear, stress, and any other negative word you can think of. After some prayer, soothing tunes, and tears I felt a peace come over me. What do I have to worry about? I know the ultimate healer. I’m a child of God. Whose hands would I rather be in? I started thinking to myself how did I get here to this peaceful moment. You see, I am not a…

New Year and New Ideas

I’ve said before that I struggle to keep focus on my projects when I hit a creative roadblock. I’ve been in a creative slump with the blog for awhile now mainly because I have many creative ideas in my mind. For a long time, I’ve wanted to start a style blog due to my love of vintage style, good deals, and thrifting. I’m a former boutique owner and I have a love for the business side of style. The issue in my mind is I still have a deep desire to share my life experiences as well. The thought of…

Counting Down 2015

I’m getting rich quick tonight and counting my blessings. I decided that in order to end the 2015 year properly I needed to talk about some of the people and things I’m thankful for. At first, I wanted to countdown but then I felt guilty because I’m thankful for all these things equally. The list is small but it packs a powerful punch. My Family – I’m fortunate to have a small but close family who are there when I need them. My oldest Brother – He has become one of my most favorite humans in the world. My big…

Christmas 2015

Christmas has come and gone and so has my memory apparently. I’m truly shocked by how quickly 2015 went by. In my mind, I keep reviewing events from January 2015 forward and I feel like it wasn’t that long ago. With this beautiful Christmas season, I’m so thankful for many areas of my life. I intend to do a New Year countdown because I want to discuss in detail all of the areas that I’m thankful for. For now, I have a topic on my heart. I want to express how thankful I am for the Christmas season. I’m so…

Time Heals All

About a week ago I took a small road trip with one of my oldest and dearest friends to Tennessee. This was a first for us. In the 15+ years that we’ve been friends we have never set off on an adventure past our own backyards. While on the trip, several thoughts came to my mind about life. I stood on my hotel balcony and stared out across a beautiful lake and into the gorgeous mountains of East Tennessee and I thought: Life is not always what we want, always what we need, or think we want and need. Life…

Give Love and Hope

This topic has been on my heart and my mind for months and – maybe even years if I truly put it on a timeline. The topic is broad but it centers around modesty, attitudes, and how we treat others. As I begin to write this post I’m backspacing and trying to find the right words for what I want to say. Modesty is a topic that is very important to me because as a teenager and into my early 20’s I lived as a Pentecostal woman. I learned to love my makeup free face and my long skirts. I…

Why I Love Spring

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Why? Because it’s a fresh start and a new beginning for everything around us. I have two favorite times of year, Fall & Spring.  Fall is the end of the year and Spring is the beginning of the year in my mind. Do you ever want to start fresh? Do you ever wish you could wipe the slate clean and start all over again? I sure do. I often think I would do so much different if I had a “do-over” on life. The truth is though, I wouldn’t change…

Blessed to be a Mother

Why do I love being a mom? Oh, I would love to tell you all about it.  Today the thought of being a mother overwhelmed me. I thought about all the ways I have grown and changed as a person throughout the years. I also thought about how nothing worked out as planned. Prepare for mushy words. The reasons are basic in some ways but are also so amazing I can hardly find words to explain it. Being a mother changed me into someone for better and for worse in many ways. I can’t say I’m one of those moms…

How Do I Look?

How do I look? Appearance has been on my heart and mind so much lately. Appearance is everywhere we look. It’s in my face everywhere I go. Here goes for an example:  Monday is sloppy because I’m sure to wake up late and have 15 minutes to get dressed. Tuesday and Wednesday are a slight improvement in my general appearance and by Thursday and Friday I have it down and I will probably look pretty decent. Appearance is everywhere I go and everywhere I look outside of my own bathroom mirror. If I have a meeting I figure I better…

Hello 30

So, I’ve said before that turning 30 fueled the blog. I’ve been thinking of writing out life, my thoughts, and experiences for awhile now but for some reason just figured that it had no point. It may not, but regardless I have this new passion to share in hopes of making someone, anyone have a better day. I also have this new sense of weird wonder (I’m saying this with a very magical tone in my head right now). I wonder if anyone else has felt this way? Well, since turning 30 there has been this invisible light switch inside…
