Yes, you can live your best life!

Posts Tagged ‘peace of mind

What I have learned during my time here on earth is that everyone has an opinion? To some degree, to be opininated could be a good thing. That means you have your own mind and you are not afraid to express your feelings and views. But, what happens when your opinion is not warranted and has the ability to hurt someone in your process of expressing yourself? 

Honestly, no one can stop an opinionated person from saying whatever, but you can manage how you receive their opinions. Only you can allow what someone says to go in one ear and out the other. Or, you can allow their words to cause you to question how awesome you are as a person and keep you in bondage.

So what someone doesnt like your new dress. If you like it, that is all that matters. When you look in the mirror and only see fabulous then that’s all what counts. 

Where I see most people are still in bondage is when it comes to their past. Yes, you messed up way back when. But, you are a better person now. Stop allowing the opinions of others who knew you way back then, to keep you in your past. God has the ability to help anyone who wants to change. People are always evolving, so ignore the haters. Ignore those who never have anything positive to say. Ingore their opinions and keep pressing forward. 

Sometimes, you gotta make new friends!

We all have a past, but the great thing is that we all have a future too. God’s opinion of you is the only one that truly matters. I encourage you to live the very best life you can live and ignore any counteraction against what you are trying to achieve!

At times being a black woman is hard. Maybe it’s hard for all women of every race at some point in life, but I can only speak from one perspective…my perspective. 
In my 38 years, I’ve been through a few storms. My storms may not compare to the many stories I read or hear about, but that does not belittle my struggles. Thank God for his daily strength because at times I feel a heavy weight on my shoulders. I feel as though I am the one who carries the concerns of the family and household in my heart and thoughts. It consumes me at times. I pray daily for wisdom and direction because I feel if I mess up, my whole family suffers. 

I work full-time. I am a full time wife and mother. I also have my own dreams and goals for my life. At times I feel like I’m being pulled in too many directions. Where do I find balance? Where do I find peace? 

I try to meditate and hear from the Lord. I know he hears my prayers and makes a way out of no way. I am very grateful for his grace and mercy. But, I will admit sometimes I cry. I cry to release my hurt and my pains. I cry to be cleansed and to say to God, I am nothing without you! 

I am a black woman who is married to a black man and who has black male children. Both of which are considered an “endangered” species. Everyday I pray for their safety and that they make good decisions. Although I know not everyone on the planet is not racist, racism still exsit. 

I will never understand how you can hate someone just because their skin is different from yours. 

So if you ever see me “out of sorts,” just say a quick prayer. And although I always make it out a champion, life can be hard at times. Don’t judge me by my storm. Nor, judge me if I don’t make the best decision. I’m simply a human trying to make it in a society that doesn’t want me to make it. 

But, I know I man named…Jesus!

I got a man. Not just any ole kind of man, I finally got a good man! What makes him good in my opinion is his heart. His heart is pure, as well as, his intent and motives. No more playing games with guys who don’t really want to be committed. But I’m finally with someone who wants the same things in life.

True, I was happy before he ever came on the scene, because happiness starts from within. But, now that he’s in my life, I feel an extra pep in my step when I hear him call me, baby.

Even if my day is not going the way I would like for it to go, I take comfort in knowing after everything is said and done. After the children have completed their homework, eaten dinner, bathe and and are tucked comfortably in their beds, the time I look foward to the most is drawing near.

We slip into something comfy, position our pillows, I place my head on his chest as he holds me with his arm, and we have pillow talk. It’s here that I feel the closest to him. It’s here that there is no judgement, but rather love, respect and understanding. Its here that I feel safe and secure.

True, there are many other moments in our lives that I enjoy, but I have to admit, cuddling in the bed amongest pillows with the love of my life is one of my favorite places to be.
