Self Actualization

I know it sounds cliche … but I spent most of my day watching Oprah. For a large portion of my life I’ve kind of laughed at her and have potentially taken all her hard work for granted. I find this kind of surprising because she is everything I stand for and encompass. She is a woman changing lives, giving people dreams and supporting those that are hurt. She is empowering woman and I think she is the cat’s pajama’s. Where have I been all this time? 

My favourite Oprah cliche is her yelling in a deep voice “you get a new car, and you get a new car, and you get a new car”. It’s absolutely ridiculous. But I watched an episode of “Where are they now” and there was a story of a woman who sold the new car and started a make up business that had blossomed into a franchise that she sold to Macy’s. Talk about ripple effect. 

I also stumbled across this wonderful blog, that is a more straight forward version of what my blog started off being. The young woman writing the blog writes about one thing a day that she is thankful or blessed to have in her life. It’s absolutely wonderful and I would encourage you all to read it. Here is the link: http://todaywasmeaningful.wordpress.com/page/4/

My hats off to you ladies, you are smart and kind and because of those two traits - that makes you beautiful. 

I am on a journey to becoming re - self actualized. My Lord knows I need it and the the Lord knows I need him near. I am blessed today to be given this opportunity, this time, to find serenity and peace. 

The knowledge of this, gives me tingles.

I want to be a more soulful Woman

I want to be a more soulful Woman. I haven’t written on here in ages… but I think it is time that I started again. 

For the last hour I have sat here listening to a woman whom is so strong. But she was strong within her weakness. She was beautiful. She was her own woman.

Recently I’ve tried to bring myself back to the basics. I devote every morning as soon as I wake up and every evening before I go to bed to my God. Even now, I know it is not enough but I will continue to try and be better. I read my devotional and I try to reflect, I try to absorb and I try to bring all the memories of love back into my heart. I try to bring Jesus, in His truest form, back into my heart. Writing the word ‘back’ in the last sentence really hurt … but if I am being truthful with myself, then that word should be there. There is a big difference between ‘going through the motions’ and actually ‘feeling’ something. Jesus’ love is something you should ‘feel’. 

I just want to be more WOMAN. I’m in tears, but what else new. My heart aches right now. It probably shouldn’t, but it does. I live in fear, but I’m not sure if it is of God. 

In life, you will do things much greater than you ever imagined. I can promise you that.

Minerva Chapter

I’m a belle, a southern belle
a ‘bama belle, a dixie belle
I’ve got secrets I won’t tell
y’all don’t like it go to
hell..o soldier, what’s your pleasure?

And If I Had The Power…

I would try to fix you. 

When you are young and in love, you do dumb things, like stay up until 4:30am talking about things that make you happy. When you are young and engaged you do things like move to foreign countries together. When you are young and in love, you do what your heart tells you to, before you listen to your mind. 

"I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you."

Isaiah 46:4   (via godmoves)
