In Her Eyes

My soul rests in the small intimate spaces within my eyes.

Not far from the distinct sound of my heart, it searches for a compatible beat; the one that finalizes the sweetest symphony.

It delicately holds all that’s pure, good, and genuine of my character. It yearns for that matching substance and effort.

My soul sits in the sparkles, hoping to find it’s perfect match.

2nd Day of 365 Thanks Giving

Today,I’m giving thanks for transparency.

When we live in truth, we will be see through.

No deception, denial, or destruction.

No confusion, lies, and fear.

It’s a shield; a reliable source of protection.

Transparency blocks us from negativity

Involving insecurities, shame, and guilt.

It’s a choice. Sometimes, it’s uncomfortable.

It’s a fine quality to posses.

With Love & Light

1st Day of 365 Thanks Giving

Today, I’m starting a series called 365 Days of thanks giving. It’s a simple habit that redirects my mind and changes my attitude towards life.

I hope, in the comments, you’ll join me! One simple thing/person/place/memory something that you wish to give thanks!

For my first day, I’m going to give thanks to unanswered prayers! Our minds think we know what’s best. Our hearts think we know how to handle everything.

Not so much.

The process is built on faith, a time where we pray and think, pause and reflect, forgive and extend grace.

We don’t have all the answers!

For that, I’m so grateful!

With Love & Light

Natural Look 😂😂

My most prized moment😂😂😂 Yes this was intentional. Yes I know this is sexy, thanks for the compliment!

You need laughter in your life:D If I can provide that, I’ll proudly do so!

Note: This is in no way an act of mockery or belittling anyone. It’s not an act to disrespect or the alike. {Sadly, someone will be offended.}

History Repeats

On this Thanksgiving holiday, I thought about the soldiers who weren’t home with family.

I thought about the first responders, who chose not to congregate, in fear of spreading Covid.

I thought about the individuals who lost loved ones in recent years…

And then I thought about those who’ve lost loved ones this year.

Thanksgiving is a day that many celebrate the discovery of America…. ;but, I think it’s a day of great loss… like that of our 2020.

Lives were torn apart. Separation happened shortly after a sudden virus spread on our soil. People died, lots of them.

I don’t believe in the traditional concept of “America’s history”…. so I remained fairly quiet today; and, I prayed.

Here’s to fixing mistakes so history won’t repeat itself.

Let’s Talk Food🍲

Here I am, attempting to warm up the holiday for my kids, boo, and my mechanic (he’s not family but I’m kind to him. No explanation needed for that right?) with some veggies and beef soup!

I just added a small amount of baking soda in to tone down the tomato taste. I bought the Hawaiian sweet rolls to go with it!! Gosh those are my favorite! Dessert is Chocolate chip and cream cookies. No this is not Thanksgiving dinner it’s just something I wanted to make, and it happened to be around a holiday.

Anyway, I don’t have a cookbook of moms or grandmas best recipes. If you could comment leave me a recipe that you absolutely love or was passed down in your family!

Nova’s Wise Words Wednesdays

“Our pain is inevitable; our suffering, optional”

Nova Namastè

In 2021, I’m going to be more mindful of what I invest my energy. If it’s doesn’t add to the quality of my life, I’m not going to feed it. I don’t want it around. I’m not going to give it any time or energy.

In 2021, the moment 12:00 am hits, all that’s happened to that moment will be left at the alter. I won’t carry the anger anymore. I won’t hold myself the victim of my childhood. I won’t stand aside, rolling through the motions… foggy and confused.

I’m choosing to stop the suffering. The replaying will finally stop. The paragraph texts will finally stop. The confrontations upon deaf ears will stop. The crying because of hurt will stop. The insecurity and self hate will stop. The doubt will cease.

In this next year, I’m choosing to stand up and move forward….

Because I’m alive.

Because I’m breathing well.

Because I’m physically able.

Because I’m here.

Because I’m able.

Because I’m capable.

Because I’m taking control of my life.

Because I’m choosing to let go of the chains that bind me to the past.

💗💗

In this next year, I pray you’ll do the same. Stop allowing yourself to suffer when it’s a choice to stop it. Grab the lesson, and run with it. Grow from it and forgive yourself. Treat yourself to some love and let it go. Every single one of us will experience and has experienced pain.

How much are you going to invest into your past, rather than moving towards healing?

When Immaturity Visits

No matter how valid your feelings are, and respectful you convey them; some individuals will label them “negative” and the conversation “shit”… simply because immaturity can’t handle uncomfortable!

You didn’t say anything disrespectful. They just can’t handle confrontation. You didn’t belittle them or lose your integrity. They just can’t handle you being anything but pleasant. You didn’t do anything wrong. They just can’t handle you speaking up for yourself.

You are not at fault for speaking your truth. Their response to you speaking your truth exemplifies their character.

Remember these truths❤️

Then tell them to fuck off! (HA! No don’t do that!!)

No tomorrow is promised.
