What do I mean when I say there is “wealth in the waiting”? There are times in our lives when we have to make huge decisions that will greatly affect our well-being. Most of the time because of the society that we live in, we like to have those answers immediately. I mean, no one likes to wait, especially when the answer is so important. We need to know now what we should do! However does when we receive the right answer make it any less valuable than if we have to wait longer to get it? Knowing that you have explored all options and avenues before making a decision will leave you feeling more confident about living with that the decision for the rest of your life. Meaning, If there is a sudden stumbling block, or things start looking like they could be taking a turn in the direction you had not planned, you can say “well I’ve already explored all possible options so this was the best and maybe it just wasn’t meant.” Sometimes we think we want to live in a certain area or drive a certain vehicle and then once we get those things we realize it’s not what we wanted after all. So I have learned that even in making the best decision or choice that fits my life, sometimes there is a lesson in the process of waiting for something, than actually in the receiving. In other words; If I apply for a loan that I need to purchase a home I really want, (and we know the long process in buying a home) even though buying this new home can be an improvement for you and your family, it doesn’t mean that it is what you need now and it might not work out. The beauty in the delay is it gives time for thought and reasoning. What’s wrong with having a little extra time to make sure have covered all your bases.
THE WAIT IS WONDERFUL…

So, it’s been a while since my last post. I feel like maybe this is going to be the most difficult post I have ever submitted. Seems like when you are on a hiatus from something that you should’ve never taken leave from in the first place, there is a certain guilt and pressure you feel to be better or as good as you were before the break.
I always knew that I would find my way back to my blog again, but sometimes life can complicate things a bit. Figuring out how I would get back on that path was frustrating!! There were so many days I wanted to break out my device and start a post, but when it was time to actually do it, I froze. Most people who are passionate about something look at their work as a representation of who they are. This means they put a lot of thought into this passion and don’t want to rush and create work that is a FALSE representation of who they are.
With that in mind; I had no clue what to write about. I had hit a creative stumbling block. Have you ever had so many ideas that even that caused you problems? My brain exploded because of everything that I wanted to write about, but the inability to put it in words was mind blowing!!
I worked out and went to the gym to clear my head so that I could pick a topic, concentrate on it, and FIND WORDS!! Am I the only one that has used this technique? Well, it didn’t work!..😓
I refused to let it go this time and I looked for inspiration in everything: beautiful scenery and even just the day to day people watching as the masses commuted to work..
Long story short.. I found that I was complicating and over-thinking things. I have a lot to say, and the best way to deliver my thoughts is just to SAY IT! The way I express myself is what makes my work unique. It’s the ME factor. I literally almost gave up on this passion of mine because I treated it like a job and not a passion. It’s been years since I’ve published a post and I’m excited to jump back in and start sharing and reading all of the wonderful stories of others. Even if it’s been years like me since you have danced, wrote a song, created new music, whatever, Take a leap and never give up!!

Overlooking everything in our lives that do not add value to it is not healthy. We don’t want to become comfortable with things, people, etc.. that counter the productivity and the substance that we are trying to add to our livelihood.
These people and things are like leeches sucking the light out of your life. They become like weights. The more you accumulate the more weighed down you will feel and soon the drive you once had is lost and your vision for your life becomes clouded.
Life is a fight. Evaluating your life, environment, friends and your own state of insanity takes persistence and bravery. Being brave enough to admit to yourself that changes need to be made is essential. Sometimes changes in our lives take us out of our comfort zone and that alone can be scary.
Keep fighting the obstacles so that you can live the best life you can. We only get one shot. .Let’s make it count
God Bless #testify
I am who I am, worry about who you should be. So many times people want you to follow their footsteps, but you can’t. We have to stay true determined not to be changed.. I love the way I love; I play the way I play. Our differences make us unique. . Our opinions make us special. Conforming makes us ordinary. Who doesn’t want to be different, strange or mysterious? Whatever your role and whoever you decide to be. BE YOU!! PLAY THE GAME BY YOUR RULES AND LIVE LIFE TO YOUR STANDARDS!! I’m sure someone out there is dealing with peer pressure or with the pressure to change your beliefs, but don’t.. like you, I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM UNIQUE, I AM ME..I AM…….
Being yourself can sometimes be hard. Loving yourself can be the most difficult task you could accomplish.. not everyone will understand the decisions you will make, but you have to be yourself. Sometimes people will ridicule you and tell you they know what’s best. But it always best to be yourself!!.. know that you are a winner, know that you matter and know that you have purpose. Sometimes we look for others for validation; and that’s okay, that’s called being human. However in listening to positive criticism we must never agree with opinions that void our deepest beliefs and that shake our moral foundation. .
I haven’t posted in a while, I’m sorry for that. I have learned that some people actually look forward to my posts and I am forever grateful for that. We must all understand that we have a responsibility. A responsibility to ourselves first, to make sure that our minds and bodies are healthy to provide the service to others that we are regarded to.
No matter how small no matter how little we have to uphold the influences and responsibilities that we have to our fellow man. Remembering that life is greater than you should inevitably substantiate our existence. .if you can help; help, if you can teach; teach, if you can preach; preach, but whatever you do, do it with a healthy mind and body so that you can do it to the best of your ability and that it comes from a wholesome place.
Thanks everyone for your support even in my absence..it’s truly beautiful! !
I think that we all at one time or another have disguised ourselves to be something or someone that we are not. I don’t know the reason, that varies. Sometimes it’s easier to be something or someone that we are not so that when we come under criticism we can say “well that wasn’t the real me anyway”
What’s wrong with being ourselves? We have got to come to a point where we are okay and confident in ourselves so that we can freely be ourselves.
So let’s start with all of those not so scary skeletons in our closets. Sometimes we think our insecurities are so huge and complicated that they will run the right person away. That’s not true. Your flaws will attract the right person.
Let’s clean out our closet by confessing our flaws. Saying aloud that our flaws are what make us unique and beautiful!!
We are not perfect..we are always in the process of bettering ourselves. Whether it’s working out,a diet, spiritual growth, and or embarking on a new quest of self-fulfillment. Understanding that being who you are is the most beautiful and awe-inspiring act that you could ever do, is life changing!!..
Being in love with yourself will make you feel like you’re on top of the world. No one can hurt, damage, or manipulate this love. It’s in your hands. Treat it with the utmost respect and shelter it. No one can take it, unless you give them permission to do so.
