The Fine Line of the Defined.

"If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive." Audre Lorde

Ms Lorde,

In 1982, I was 5 years old. If I had grasped this concept then... wow! Thank you #AudreLorde

The expectations of others can be so taxing. The expectations we place on ourselves can be unrealistic. Comparison has no place in the peaceful rivers of the mind.

My  prayer request for you and the meditation
1.Continue to be vibrant, hope-filled and bold.
2. Doubt negative Self Talk (you will get that later).
3. Stand on my uniqueness (for I am fearfully and wonderfully made)
How can you apply this quote to your life?

Accepting my weakness as willingness

Today I was sitting there pondering...
I have the assignment of creating a Life Season Timeline while I gaze at this floor plan that I was inspired to jot down.

Needless to say, my anxiety was inching upwards as my confidence in God's ability to execute rises.

Let's agree on this... I do not know the details, but I know the ending.  I know I am inadequate, but I also know I'm willing....

Not to be churchy...but today I was chewing on Jer 29:11...For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

It really helped to clear and lift my head. My shoulders got a lil lighter! Today I will trust Him!!

Simple Convo Always Pulls The Heartstrings

Talking with my oldest today, she mentioned the concept of "making ends meet". I stopped her. Baby, we are blessed that you have been able to live with "ends overlapping"...

I say that to say engage in conversation with your kids at ALL levels/ages to see where their minds are. The variation of the perception of how your brow sweats and how good you make it look may be great!

#Blessed were the days of living check to check but peaceful are the days of "oh, we get paid today?"

I am but He is!

Sometimes #RockBottom is all about prospective. Position yourself!

Fly again!

Lyrics by Mr Mister:

"Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again, learn to live so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up and let us in
Take these broken wings"

This morning, I just hear this chorus encouraging all of us. For those of you who are getting up with broken wings may you remember how to fly... not remember that they were once broken or rather any guilt, embarrassment or grief for that past season! If you do remember that your wings were broken, may we all remember the lesson taught and learned, but even greater remember the reward of flying. Fear has no hold on us! Anxiety flees with prayer! God's good hand of favor is upon us. His grace is sufficient for us. You too can fly again. The Book of love, the Bible, is what we need to fly again. God's Word is with you and goes before you! You will mount up on wings like EAGLES!! Pick up your broken wings and pride for He is the lifter of your head!

Passion Driven

Twas looking for what would click and fuel my inspiration for my nightly meditation time... and here it is. What I am passionate about is what and where my purpose lies. I will stay relevant, humble and in my lane. The Lord will bless me (open doors) when I'm faithfully working where I'm supposed to be! My blessing is here and more (greater in quality and size) is near!

Just "BE" Today

I took today off from work as a Mental Health day. I will enjoy it without any regrets of yesterday or any anxiety of what's to come tomorrow. Today I will simple BE.

Be proactive in your emotional maintenance. The universe will pull from you until you are depleted and still, that won't be enough... Just BE! if something gets done, fine! If it doesn't, fine!
