Question to Ask Yourself

Questions signify someone wants to know more. It is a way to demonstrate interest and; thus, plant seeds of growth. In America, I’ve always said it’s our personal due diligence to ask questions. It’s our responsibility to know the truth, to research and verify the information we are told.

Similarly, I feel this responsibility should extend into our personal lives. Do we question what we’re told? Do we research and verify before we whole-heartedly believe something? Do we ask questions, lots and lots of questions.. Do we challenge perspectives? Most of the time, this would be in opposition to ourselves; because, we are our own most challenging apponent.

So are you ready to grow within yourself? Do you know where to begin? Are you uncomfortable with the idea of pondering answers, in fear of what you might discover? Can you stand the idea of what will resurface? I know all of that feels terrifying. It’s taking you to a place that strips away all protection.. And leaves you vulnerable.

It’s ok to be uncomfortable, uncertain, and anxious about this journey. This is the hardest part, though. I promise.

You can take your time. You can visit and revisit the questions.. You can write down your thoughts.. {Which I highly recommend… not that you asked for my suggestion 🤣🤣}.

Give yourself time to think about what is really being asked. Think about how you need to answer.. What would your honest answer be? The intentional mindfulness will be exhausting.. But, the revelations and convictions can lead to beautiful healing.

Now, one final thought before I suggest questions to ponder.. And if you know me well, you’ll recognize my infatuation with “WHY!”… That’s what I want to address.. Why should you do this?

I’ll respond with this… Why not?

Here’s a few places to start..

  1. Have I been ashamed or disappointed in myself lately? Did the emotions trigger something else? Or did something trigger these emotions?

This one question can provide such an insight into who you are, without you even realizing it.

  1. {Stemmed from Q1:} What exactly happened that created these triggers, to begin with? What would happen if I faced them.. And just stared at them for a few minutes? What part of this past can I hold myself accountable? What parts can’t I hold myself responsible, because I was a child?

Start there.. Unbeknownst to me, I think I’ll create a sequel to this post.

I am praying, this universe, all the good vibes, and heavenly angels will hold you close and give you patience, peace, and love with/for yourself.

I’m here if you’d need to talk or would like to share with me, I’m here.

Until next time,

Stay Safe, Speak Life, and Spread Kindness 💗

Inner Child: Storytelling

When you consider who you are right now, for any amount.. Even a tiny morsal, do you blame your childhood? I do.

My belief is most of us don’t understand child development until we’re adults. We’re raised by human adults that, also, may not understand it. By the time we reach the age of understanding, we are working tirelessly UNLEARNING the mistakes and CORRECTING ourselves.

This crazy cycle is unnecessary. I want to speak to the children in our WordPress community. These children are currently under the age of 21.

This information is a result of endless theory and testing, research and critiquing. Erik Erikson was a German Psychologist who spent decades developing what’s, now, commonly known as

The 8 Stages of Psychological Development


NOW.. I need the rest of the childrens’ attention please!

Who’s left? The rest of us, 21 and older… Every single one of us has an inner child. I don’t care what you’ve done or how hard ass you think you are. I don’t care what you say about your sense of awareness… When you’re faced with THE one situation that crumbles all the walls, leaving you vulnerable… Your child shows up!

I need all of you beautiful children to sit with me, while I tell you a story..

It’s about a little boy.. A little girl.. Or a precious soul and the journey of growth. It’s a story with many chapters; so I’ll need your patience… I’ll need you put on your listening ears.. And use your best silent voices. This story isn’t one you’ve ever heard. It’s, also, one you’ll never forget.

To the group I addressed first, I encourage you to sit with the rest of our kids. I hope you’ll listen and take note of the truth in the story. I hope you’d safely tuck these chapters into your heart.

Each Chapter will be Red lettering. It’ll say

Storytelling: Chapter {whatever}

The 1st Chapter will be posted soon. Please keep a look out for it.

Until then, gather some Self-Care treats and rest your beautiful self. This adventure isn’t going to be easy.. but, it’s going to be worth it 💚💜💚

With all my love 💎❤️

Morning Affirmation

Credit to Sarah Ann Design

I needed to hear this message, this morning! So many times {ok the majority of my last 20 years!} I’ve struggled with my worth because of my vertigo. My vertigo costed me 10 years of extreme anxiety and crippling independence.

I doubted I would feel worthy of a nice loyal guy (which also doesn’t define you.. A significant other!). I doubted I could feel more than a single mom statistic struggling in life.

Life has aligned my experiences as they were meant to happen.

Today, our gift of presence is enough of a reason to feel valued and loved… It IS the simple reason to be good to ourselves.

Being is enough 💜

About Relationships

These are SO HARD 👀 Right? Yes, I’ll say it for all of us. If you don’t think so, please grace me with your knowledge. A relationship is a two way street, with lots of love, trust, communication, forgiveness, patience, acceptance, listening, honesty, respect, trying, and more.

Unforgettable friendships are such a blessing! These are the ones that ride or die with you. These are the ones that laugh with you when the night before was so embarrassing. These are the ones who pray with you or sit with you as you cry. These connections are the foundation when your world is complete and utter chaos.

Sadly, all to often, this one relationship we count on forever… begins to weaken. Communication stops. Distance wedges it’s way in between both (or all) parties. Growing up can mean growing apart. It’s ok.

In many other cases, the scenario is beyond messy. It’s deadly. It’s life consuming and dangerous.

Tonight, I wanted to speak to you particular individuals. I want to encourage you with these messages.

Your voice is your power ❤️ Always! If you’re in a situation that feels less than empowering and supportive, it’s time to leave. I’m not saying quit. I’m saying there is a limit to which you tolerate less than. That’s your choice. That’s yours to change. You ARE capable of what’s necessary. I’m saying you matter too. I’m saying it’s time to give all of yourself to yourself.

I’m sending you all positive vibes and love. I’ll listen if you need an ear. We’re all going through this crazy life together.

Until next time,

Nova Namastè

Silent Screams

“Burn in me

A desire to continue,

When I want to quit.

Give me the will and effort

Needed to get through this moment.

Then the next….. and the next.

Remind me of the power that

Resides in my lungs,

Healthy breathing.

Move my body in

The direction of safety,

I can’t see that place,

Right now.

Reduce this heartache,

How does one exist in

An ugly pile of broken pieces.

Take my entire being,

This I beg.

I’m losing all control.“

Nova’s Wise Words Wednesdays

If you don’t go through the process of an experience, you’ll surely miss it’s entire purpose. There following, what will make sense, if all the dots aren’t connected?

Sure you’ll be vulnerable. You’ll be confused. You’ll question and fear. You’re going to be uncomfortable and hesitant.


What if the purpose of the moment is to build self confidence? What if life is trying to teach you resilience? What if this is meant to strengthen your belief in your truths? What if this experience teaches you that you don’t need to know all the answers… That faith and trust do work in accordance to a greater plan?

There’s a reason for everything, my friends. Embrace all parts to each one.

Until next time

Stay Safe, Speak Life, and Spread Kindness!

With Love and Light,

Stop the Cycle

She always walked with her head down. The bill of her fedora shadowed her face. She dared not make eye contact, nor allow her tears to expose her weakness.

Many of years, she’s worked on this armor. Her pain holds her heart hostage. It prevents opened doors. When the locks are sealed, there’s no way in… or out.

Her family has spent the best part of these past ten years hovering over her. They have perfected relentless psychoanalyses! She cringes at the hint of another inquisitive “How are you doing?”.

She didn’t want to think about what happened. She refused to allow the ugly monster of shame to control her life. The past is the past; and, that’s where she plans it to stay.

That’s a shattered broken soul, abandoned by a man who never really felt, understood, or knew love.

His childhood trauma manifested a rolling ball of anger. As a child, he didn’t understand what was happening; or, if he could do a thing to stop it.

His father beat his mother. When his father wasn’t doing that, he was sitting down at the local bar. There were only a handful of instances when his father wasn’t drunk.

His father was a poor mess, unforgivable and self distructive. Unfortunately, this generational curse only continued.

…. And she no longer could see her own beauty. She no longer had a sense of freedom.

A Man’s Halloween Night

Taken from Unsplash

He started walking…

And walking…

And walking…

The snow had been falling,

But he didn’t care.

He had become

Numb to all his senses.

Blurred lines, insignificant details

On the left… on the right.

He allowed himself to befriend disparity.

Over & over, the scenarios raced

Through his mind.

He grew weak, sickened by his

Own behavior.

“What was he thinking?!” he asked


“How did he go through with it,

Knowing darn well how Vanessa

Would feel?!” He disguised himself.

The road grew darker, almost as

If his skeletons had joined him.

They devilishly cackled.

He had lost; they had won.

Again, and again, over & over.
