Never before in my life have I been so serious about my space and my time.
I’m extremely cautious on what I do, where I am, what I say, what I listen to, what I read, what I engage in, that my head is protected, that my space is cleansed and protected, that my home is cleansed and protected, that my people are covered, and that my surroundings are covered.
I use to say my purpose is greater than me and that’s so far from the truth.
I am greater because of my purpose.
My purpose has made me a greater person.
I look back at who I used to be and I’m no longer ashamed. Everything lead me to these moments.
I still have a lot of life left to live and learn.
My journey of healing and self discovery has opened so many wounds up that I really had to get in and treat. A lot of them aren’t easy fixes and I’m STILL treating the wound.
Nevertheless I’m thankful.
Healing isn’t pretty. Shadows and Triggers lurk all around us and create responses out of us that go against our current characters. That’s why it’s important to apply grace and love in all that we do.
The same grace and love that we expect is the same grace and love that we should be giving plus some.
One thing I realized that I love saying now that I used to never say before is, “No.”
You can say no in love y’all. You’re not obligated to over burden yourselves. Do what you can so that you’re still authentic within your truth and your purpose.
We can’t please everyone.
I haven’t fallen out with a soul. I love everyone. My doors are always open.
Be great today in all that you do. Tomorrow is never promised. Living like it’s your last isn’t just about doing things that give you comfort it’s also about leaving lasting impressions on those that you love and care for.
If you left this world today would you leave it in peace? Would you leave pieces of yourself that you would want left with the ones that you love?
Make amends. Tell those that you love that you love them and that you appreciate them.
I love y’all.
