3.2.1 Quote Me – Hope

I was tagged, on July 3rd, by Beckie’s Mental Mess, to participate in the 3.2.1 Quote Me Challenge. The chosen word this time is HOPE 🙂 {My favorite word, tying with love and faith.}

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Helen Keller

We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.

Aristotle Onassis
(interesting twist of the word)

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Robert Kennedy

My own:

Let hope not fall and fade, but rather, live and grow through acts of kindness.

Monday Greetings

I hope you all had a good weekend. I actually had a pretty good one, all things considered.

Saturday night I went to bed at 9:15, got up about three for snack, and went back to sleep until 8:15. I can’t remember the last time I slept all like that.

Today, I got a few things accomplished and really tackled my kitchen. Decluttering ALWAYS feels good. My dishes are about done, yeah it feels nice.

Other than that, it’s been a chill weekend. To hot and tired to do much else.

Good Morning y’all.

I Give Up

Today on June 25, 2019, I’m following beside the brave and beautiful soul, JoyPassionDesire; and I’m giving up!

Say whhhhaaaa?

I’m giving up expecting others to care about my feelings when I know they won’t.

I’m giving up the fear to open up and let someone in.

I’m giving up the belief that I’m unloveable and difficult to love.

I’m giving up the downward spiral of his toxic life.

I’m giving up the caution that hinders happiness and invites doubt.

I’m giving up the belief in “finding the one”… Because life will lead love to find me.

I’m giving up the lie that I’m nothing because I’m not working.

I’m releasing all the negative voices, Vibes, and energy out into the vast unknown…

And I wait for that which my heart is speaking into my life.

The power of Law of Attraction will manifest my dreams and desires.

Filling all the empty places in my soul, with the sweetest taste of what’s meant for me.

What about you, what do you need to release? So you’re free to fly?

Let me know in a comment below,

Namasté 🙏🏼 🌟 🕉️

Tuesday Thoughts

This is powerful huh?!

Good Morning ~ Happy Tuesday! I’m sipping my coffee ( Seattle’s Best Port Blend is my favorite!!)

This image really caught my attention! My fears are just as aggressive and dangerously inhibiting as these alligators! I’m sure you can relate.

Thankfully, when we recognize the alligators in the swamp, we can hold on to faith and hope to keep us. I personally believe I would literally lose my mind if not for my faith.

What are these ideas anyway?

Hope is believing in what can’t be seen.

Faith is believing the unseen to come to being!

They’re might might ideas… and they’re for everyone. Spiritual, religious, atheist or whatever.

If we all practiced putting hope in situations and faith into ourselves, I know we’d build self confidence and overcome. I know we’d be victorious and feel proud.

Maybe it’s worth a try? Maybe the possibility is worth another chance? I know you’re worth having faith. I know you’re worth keeping hope!

Two Words 🦋

So yesterday,

He said, “Hello Beautiful”…

My Mental Health Journey 5

“You seem happier!”

Someone just texted me that.

It’s crazy how fast words hit my eyes, then my heart, head, and soul at the same time.

Inspiration is so refreshing.

Anyway, what these three words said to me is

” You’re validated.”

” You’re hard work is paying off.”

” You are improving, what you’re doing is working.”

It’s encouraging to hear from another that they see what I’ve been working so hard to achieve.

It’s not about acceptance from anyone else, but that my efforts are evident and I can proudly smile in self validation.

….

I am happier. It’s true.

In my writing, I’m able to expose my ugliness and feel heard.

That, alone, is freeing.

You’re my therapy sessions lol, except I’m not paying a fortune, and limited to two hours.

….

I’m happier because of this job opportunity.

There’s more to that than what’s on the surface.

Ten years ago, I was a married closeted Bisexual, living in low income and ghetto housing, miserable, lost, and unhappy.

I had little confidence & very little pride in myself.

That year, I graduated with a 4.0 and a teaching license.

It was the being of my self discovery.

This job opportunity is the first one that I’m excited to start.

This is the first one that I feel confident to do, and to do well.

This is the most motivated and eager I’ve felt about a job ” EVER”!

MAYBE it’s because this job is career material, incredible in so many ways.

…..

I’m happier because I’m working on my emotions.

Being INFJ & HSP, AND EMPATH is exhausting.

There’s only a few of you who can possibly understand what I’m saying.

But, what I’m doing, and I just went through this process this morning, is being mindful and intentional about what I feel.

I was feeling so down this morning. I felt a certain way about an individual, and I didn’t like it.

Instead of sorting through why I felt as I did, I slipped insecurity through my fingers via text.

Then, I remembered I didn’t have to feel yucky. I realized I could identify what I do feel, remove the foggy lense, and feel ok.

…..

I’m happier because I feel some sense of purpose.

Making time to care for these free little libraries has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I’m able to demonstrate kindness to my daughter’s.

I’m able to use my time for a greater good.

I able to get outside, and invest into the future of generations to come.

This allows me to give to the community and not have to deal with coworkers and deadlines lol.

This also provides a place where I can place necessities for those who may need it.

…..

It feels good to feel this sense of self acceptance and identity.

It really does!

How to Listen Without Getting Defensive

I will be the first to say ” I Do This!! ” No, I don’t want to, so I’ve been working on it.

Today I learn something so interesting, our neurotransmitters filter all the information we absorb. Now, when we hear a ” difference of opinion” about a subject of our deep concern, because it’s of importance to us, we get defensive! It’s the same process that occurs if we see a loved one getting attacked.

This particular article talks about how we can work ourselves out of that defense mode. These are EASY AND SIMPLE changes that can strengthen our relationships of any level!

You’ve Got This!! Good Luck!

Here’s the key to listening non-defensively.

In the Mess of Things

Photo taken from Pinterest

In the Mess of Things,

I need to ask you to hold on,

Don’t lose hope in the best of society.

So many already have, and we need it.

In the Mess of Things,

I need to ask you to smile,

Too many faces have forgotten how,

Replaced by tears and anguish.

In the Mess of Things,

I need to ask you to keep being kind.

So much has been buried

Brokeness and bitterness now reside.

In the Mess of Things,

I need to ask you to love.

It’s the element that sustains life.

The light in the path of darkness.

In the Mess of Things,

I need to ask you to have Faith.

Not necessarily solid at all times,

But remains existing in a world of chaos.

Finally, In the Mess of Things,

I need to ask you to Self Reflect

All that ever is, was, or will be

Can NEVER BE YOU. 💙

I Choose Now

” I choose to slow down enough to connect with the gift I’m given in this moment. ”

When I go through something tough, I’m always looking for the lesson. There’s so much change needed to become the best version of me, that I need to use every given opportunity. Today, this is that lesson.

I think back and frustratingly grieve my losses. I sit here and fight with whomever about everything that isn’t RIGHT NOW.

IF I’m never given another moment, I’d want you all to believe my words that I’m grateful for you. I’d give you a big hug and tell you life will change again, things can be better.

Right now, I’m exhausted from the fighting. My heart and soul goes into him… But, so few are worth it. Love isn’t pretty. Right now, my dishes need done. My girls rooms need picked up. I could use a shower…

But right now, I’m feeling thankful that he chose to continue fighting me. He wasn’t willing to block my number and dismiss me.

It’s 7:15… My favorite hour:) I’m sitting in my favorite chair, listening to the tick tock of two clocks, nearby. I’m listening to my girls laughing and playing in the other room.

Right now is a gift. I’m thankful.

The other lesson I learned is to not speak from a place of insecurity. I know I matter to him. I know that love is something special and takes time to develop.

I know what it feels like when we spend time together ; and nothing else is in our world at the moment.

Insecurity robs us of a peace of mind. It doesn’t have too, if we recognize it’s ugly stench.

I’m a work in progress.

Thursday Thought (republished)

Good Morning Readers 😀

I intentionally advocate on the subject of mental health and all it encompassess (usually referencing my own life!).

Because life doesn’t stop, and our mental health seems to be lacking value to most of this world, I’m here to help break down that stigma.

This morning, I discovered a particular blogger who obviously is hurting. When I finished reading the posts, I searched for the right words to use in a response. I never wish to patronize and undervalued the individual’s emotions in that given moment. What I hope to do, is to meet the individual where he or she is… Take their hand, and say,

” Every single heart deserves to believe their truth. The hardest part is figuring out what that is because this chaotic world we live in is full of brokenness and lies. No living thing is created exactly the same as any of its kind, that came before it, since, or will in the future.”

.

.

That’s what I did this morning. I try to show the light of hope in all places consumed by darkness, not to build myself up or appear bragging. I genuinely understand the struggles of a tortured mind, hurting heart, and broken spirit.

Finally, then, my morning greeting to you is this: I hope you’re doing better today, than you were yesterday. Your eyes are open; therefore, you remember that you’ve been given this day for a purpose. I hope you feel this necessary and joyous love for yourself because you deserve it. There’s no one else like you. That makes you extraordinary ~

Just Don’t

I don’t owe you an explanation.

My clothes are on my body; it’s not a welcome invitation to violate.

My skin color IS my beauty; my history my story. It’s not your ticket to decimate and hate.

My voice is my truth; my right to use it. You will not munipulate and silence.

My actions are my life, my legacy to pass on. It’s not up for you to revise and edit.

My heart lives within me, the element that gives me life. It’s not yours to destroy with your bitterness.

My sexually is my pride. It’s nothing offensive but to your ego.

My spirituality is my peace. It’s not an excuse for your nasty ignorance of unacceptable behavior.

Any, every, and all parts of who I am is mine to own, protect, nurture, love, cherish, and use to further kindness and compassion.

I don’t owe you an explanation!

#Monday Coffee Share

816EF33F-9D22-499D-A10E-C3CBDCBD1FAD

As I sit here sipping my coffee, I feel happy. I feel happy for many reasons.

Shortly after I got up, I wanted to feed my soul with something good & wholesome. Other than coffee, I don’t usually put anything in my body until lunch. Youtube had my rain playing, and I, then, found a story about adoption. This is such a delicate subject for me, because I am adopted. All over the world, children are given up to a system that “hopefully” places them into a suitable home. That’s not always the case.

What I love most about these stories is the gift of reunion. The precious and intimate moment when loved ones finally see each other for the first time in priceless. I get the waterworks because it’s life changing. Individuals wish and pray for this moment, remaining hopeful that it will happen.

I’m happy these positive stories are available to view. I’m happy that these reunions have been well recieved, and that the fokes welcomed each other into their lives. I’m happy that these individuals haven’t grown bitter and hateful.

The reasons why others act as they do isn’t always apparent. Though it may not make sense to anyone or everyone, most people do what they thought was best.

#TGIF

Friday morning is a perfect time to affirm what’s important! This week’s been crazy, emotionally. I feel semi-normal again. I hope all of you meet this weekend with a great flow of contentment and peace.. That you feel, ok… Even if you don’t have answers or can forsee the path… Or even understand the current state you’re in. Time seems to sort everything out and work our paths to influence our perspective.

Season’s Child

Four Seasons Garden– Photos taken from Flickr

She was sewn together with the needles of evergreen. Her hair, the waves of lavender and baby’s breathe. The air filled her lungs, inhaling life, exhaling fate. A single tear fell down onto her lap. As she sat upon this beautiful place, she enjoyed every possible moment. As the winds change, and the trees begin to turn, her life grew shorter and shorter. She became weak, unable to hold herself up. When the sunset faded, and the last leaf slowly drifted to the ground, she transcended back into her nature place.

#commentbelow 10 words to describe your day

Love is Love, no matter which way you say it💚

How we recognize love influences our relationships. There’s five different love languages, and each one is ok. The common denominator is that they all say the same: I love you in ways other than using those words.

Taken from Thought Catalog, here are fifty alternatives for I love you. May these help you recognize love in all it’s forms.

11. Sharing your favorite food.

12. Letting them have the front seat.

13. Putting two sugars in their coffee even when they say they want one because you know they like it better that way.

14. “I’m proud of you.”

15. “Listen to this song I heard—it reminded me of you.”

16. Sending a funny picture you saw online.

17. Washing their dishes even when they don’t ask you

18. “How is your family?”

19. Having Gatorade ready the morning after a rough night out.

20. “There’s traffic on the highway; take the back road.”

21. “Tell your mom I say hi.”

22. Listening to their music even when you don’t like it.

23. Bringing breakfast in bed.

24. Putting on the kettle before they even ask for tea.

25. Sharing relevant news articles with them because you know they’d be interested.

26. Helping them study for a test.

27. Going to their big game.

28. Bringing an extra water bottle when you know they’ll be in the sun.

29. “Do you need any help with that?”

30. Waiting up for them to get home.

31. “How was your day?”

32. “You should take a break—you work too hard.”

33. Taking the long way home so you both can keep talking.

34. “Good luck on your interview.”

35. Greeting them at the airport.

36. Stopping by just because.

37. Giving up your seat on the bus so they can sit.

38. Letting them go in front of you in line.

39. “You look like you could use a hug.”

40. Bringing them lunch at work.

41. “I really want your opinion on something.”

42. “You were right.”

43. “You can pick the movie tonight.”

44. Sharing your bed.

45. Holding their hair or rubbing their back if they are sick.

46. Helping them write a paper.

47. Standing up for them if someone says something mean.

48. Letting them have the window seat on the train.

49. “You can have the last slice.”

50. “Call me when you get home.” 

Couple more;) Both photos taken from Pinterest.

Broken Glass

Looking past the broken glass,

That frightened her sacred heart,

She could see the possibilities,

Her chance of a fresh new start.

She could see the sun rising,

Welcoming her to this day,

Everything appears more vibrant,

Glowing delightfully from the rays.

Life didn’t feel as heavy,

a burden no one could bare,

She didn’t feel so lonely,

As if there wasn’t a soul who cared.

Lookin past the broken glass,

She allowed herself to dream,

A happier life, simple pleasures,

And garden oasis as far as the eyes could the see.

Letter 2 Santa

Dear Santa,

I don’t know what I want this Christmas. I rarely feel comfortable buying something unnecessarily, especially at Christmas time. Money, obligations, priorities, such an adult mindset. This is what happens when children grow up.

I have two beautiful daughters of my own. They have enjoyed doing our daily advent, and prepping for your arrival. Buying gifts for them, this year, was a stresser. Unforgivingly, society defines happiness with materialistic. The constant advertising, promotion that money equals successful, and lack of government help eligibility haunts so many adults. Do I choice to buy a $300 Christmas and not cover rent or do I cover rent, and teach my children gratefulness, while struggling with depression?

Santa, there’s nothing I want this Christmas, that you can give. I’ve outgrown many childlike ways, but I know many children who can’t wait to see what you leave them. This year, I’m asking you to have a conversation with God. Come up with an answer that results in every child receiving something for Christmas. I want every single child to feel the joy and happiness of the holiday…. Even if that means playing with a shoe box. Happiness is one of the greatest gifts, and children need to feel that hope and innocence.

Humans outgrow toys….. And we forget what we find under the tree, year after year. What we never forget is how someone makes us feel, and that gift should always be good intentions and love… From adults toward children. That’s my wish this Christmas, that’s what I want. I want every adults’ behavior, toward children, to be consciously positive and just. I want children to feel the childhood innocence, that of trust and safety. The first five years of life set the tone for am entire life: children deserve the best future possible.

Whether I’ve been naughty or nice, respectfully Santa, doesn’t matter. My request is genuine. Please fulfill this grown up Christmas wish.

My daughters made the cookies,

Love :

Nova 💕

Red Strokes

What is this between us?

Where did it come from?

When did it show up

and

why the hell does it scare me?”

I wrote across the entire page.

Suddenly, as if time knew my heart’s confusion,

The molecules collected in the form of bright red lettering..

You’re in Love

I couldn’t speak, couldn’t think, didn’t want to.

I sat in my thoughts and wrapped my heart in their warmth.

Life Lessons

What I was never taught, or what was tempted to be forced into my life, I learned on my own. I knew there were skills I needed for survival. I knew there was responsibility I needed, rather than burdening someone else with it.

What I would teach my younger self about life is the following :

  1. Failure doesn’t mean unsuccessful, but rather an opportunity to try again.
  2. I am capable of so much more than I realize.
  3. Trying means I’m willing to learn.
  4. Knowing my personality type will change my life.
  5. Trust my intuition.
  6. A man knows and shows when he wants, if I’m questioning it, move on.
  7. Years become wisdom and tears become flowers.
  8. Lies can sound convincingly truthful, but they’re not.
  9. Know my worth and don’t let any man change them.
  10. Be confident in my decisions, humble in acceptance, forgiving of mistakes, and unconditional with love.
  11. Face my life as it comes, denial just delays the progress of progress.
  12. Music is free therapy.
  13. Writing things down allows me to discover patterns.
  14. Cooking is actually fun.
  15. Vertigo is treatable, and nothing of which to be afraid.
  • Heart for Humanity

    Since she was a little girl, she has had a heart for the well-being of others. Her church has organized a missionary trip to Guatemala, and she jumped at the chance to go. She wanted to broaden her horizon of the third world countries, and better understand the worlds outside her own. Through her international studies in college, God’s took her to Uganda and Tanzania. The eye opening experiences were equally humbling and heartbreaking.

    Check out Your Daily Word Prompt Here:D

    Preference or Absence

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder …. or does it? Is it the absence of another individual that strengthens love, with time? Or is it the choice to love from both individuals that sustains through distance and time?

    When others die, they don’t return. Does this make our hearts less fond of him/her? Or is it the choice to hold on to the love and let go of the pain?

    Absence may indeed make the heart grow fonder, but I believe it’s a deliberate choice to love that sustains the relationship. When someone truly understands what love is…. And what it feels like, … I don’t think someone would allow anything to interfer.

    … Or maybe I’m just a woman, insanely in love…

    Affirmative 🌺 #6

    Pinterest

    This is essential to the balance of life. If, in any one area of life, there is extra “weight”, the entire figure will tip and possibly hurt. Emotional pain, physical injury, spiritual warfare… Everything we are is connected to its pieces, and our energy is connected to others.

    This is apart of self-care, letting go. Toxic relationships, guilt, anger, bad habits… You deserve balance and peace of mind. You do. Only you can gift that to yourself, though.

    Self (me) 💗

    Happiness looks good on me. It’s a brand new makeup look. It’s a solid 3 hour nap. It’s the perfect lighting of a selfie, and a favorite song playing. It’s a Saturday night doing nothing, but refalling in love with your life. It’s feeling sexy and smiling at the unspoken secret behind a picture. It’s a natural high of incense burning, the one that reminds me of him. It’s feeling thankful that I’ve learned to be content with what I have… And it’s from the hardships that taught me such. It’s the satisfaction of satisfying hunger… It’s the vabrato of hair standing , sexy, and extremely talented singers… It’s the gratitude for the memories that visit… It’s opened windows in November, and a pain in my chest because I feel so much more than I know what to do with… It’s choosing to give… It’s choosing to love… And smile.

    It’s choosing to live💙
