Today is my birthday and I was determined to make it great! You see 4 yrs ago we went through a major loss, our community was broken, and divided. Those we did life with for so many years were no longer around. It changed me and as a result I closed my heart to friendship. Each birthday that would pass always brought me such sadness because it was a reminder of what I had lost. I didn't realize that I needed to grieve it, and allow Jesus to heal me. A year ago from today, I did just that, I grieved and cried most of the day. But I felt a sense of peace and closure. So this year, I was determined to make it great. To have fun, and do what I wanted to do which included going to a coffee shop, blaze pizza, enchanted castle, Chick-fil-A, and folding laundry while I watched a rom-com. 🤣😍
Now I can say I'm open to friendship, and to see who God connects me with, where I can be real, and share my full self.
To anyone who has experienced church hurt or a major loss of friendships. I see you, and I feel your pain. My hope would be that you would begin to walk through a healing journey, grieve the loss, and open your heart up to friendship/community. We need it! It's how we were designed, to need community, to be and feel connected!
120 days ago I was unsatisfied with my life because I was just going through the motions. I made a conscious decision to intentionally change my daily rituals to match my vision for myself (Because you don't need a new year to change your life.) It's amazing what consistency day over day will do for your life. I'm proud of the progress but still have a LONG way to go. Just getting started, baby 👍🏽
Key words: helping & taking.....BIG difference! 🤔🤔🤔
💯 We can all stand up for helping others ❤, but we must refuse to be taken advantage of. Don't be sorry for doing what's right. You can't make ppl see where the problem lies & maybe they are comfortable with their dysfunctional ways, but you're not...... Don't be.......you were not meant to be. You were meant to help as much as you can, and that time is up. Let them keep having the same problems that were present before you, it is not your responsibility, never was.... Be careful who you decide to help, is it really helping them/you for the better? Be mindful of their situation is it small or too big for you to handle? Is there a real solution? 👍🏿😎 Or some type of control.....? 👋🏿🙄 #decide#letgo#lessonslearned#foodforthought#thinktwice before being nice Leave them be & #refocus on you 🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿 #Qotd#GoodMorning#HappyTuesday#makeitgreat
Woke up in a shit mood. Not sure why. But I know this works from the inside out. I choose how to move forward. That was not the day I wanted. Once you become conscious of your own control, you take the wheel and steer your day down the right path. Take a quiet moment. Turn it around. Make it a great day. Be great to people. Lift them up. Don’t be the one waiting to be lifted. Now let’s go. You’ve got this. Be the best you. #discipline#mindcontrol#makeitgreat#attitudeiscontagious#selftalk
