Thinking to myself!

If you do not appreciate my looks and curves, a man will come that will appreciate my looks and curves.  So I know I am beautiful within, sometimes I am too nice and Honest! Well I feel like I have opened myself too much to you. I am starting to think how can I keep somethings to myself to protect my privacy. Maybe I opened myself to you because I liked you so much and you were always on my mind! Now I feel like I have to retreat.

Day 4: A Song You Want Played At Your Wedding If Only You Knew-Patti Labelle

Love this Song! I am going to sing this song to my Husband! "If only you knew, how much I do, do love you. I dream of moments we share!

Love and Life

The one thing I have learned is to Love everyone with all my heart. God teaches us Love by loving our good and bad. So today I am just thinking to myself, the hardest thing to do is to like a person who likes someone else. I have been through this same scenario over and over again. I feel like for once can the man I like, like me back so it is mutual.  For once I will like fly on the wings of love. I feel like the more I like the person, the more I set myself up for disappointment and heartbreak. So although he does not like and will never like or appreciate me for the woman I am, I am still going to love him as a human being. I am not mad at him for not liking me back. I realize you can't force someone to do something they don't want to do or love you back. Seeing the guy you like speak about another woman is the hardest thing. I am not going to hate on the other woman because he likes her. Hating on her is so petty and stupid because I don't even know her. I have learned to appreciate the little things in life and love those who love me.

For all those special guys out there that I have liked and never liked me back for one reason or another, I have nothing against you. I know the man that will love and appreciate will come around one day.

 For now I just have to say my Lips are God's gift. If you don't like it, that is okay. I believe I am beautiful and I am working being more confident inside my skin. I struggle with my confidence level on a day to day basis. So I am going to keep working on me so I can be better prepared when I meet the right person.

For the past two days, I have had two dates in a row with two different men. I mean it is just fun going on date after seven months of just being reclusive.  I felt like I just wanted to be alone, although I started liking someone else. I still did not want to put myself in a situation to get hurt. It was easy since he did not like and paid me no attention. So it was  clear that the liking was a one sided relationship.

I am happy to say I happy with the progress I have made in my life. I am such a nice and open person. I will meet you and tell you all about my life. This past year, my trust level for people decreased. I felt like I had to scramble to find someone to speak to about the things that I experienced in life.  God and fasting got me through all my hard times. My faith is so much stronger right now than a few months ago. I believe that God is preparing for something great in life. God is my shield and I love him so much. For now that is all I am going to say.

Please don't judge me by what you hear so read my blog and get to know me.

Commit yourself to Love!

"Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person.  Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is of little love." 
Erich Fromm
, was an internationally renowned social psychologist.
"I release into the universe my trust that my journey in life and all who walk my path with me are there by divine design. Therefore, I trust that along this path, others will always be there for me, even when I cannot see them waiting for me. And I open myself to be of service to those who may provide me the gift of empowerment."

Caroline Myss, is The Greatest author and medical intuitive!

"It is impossible to have a healthy relationship with someone who has no boundaries, with someone who cannot communicate directly, and honestly. Learning how to set boundaries is a necessary step in learning to be a friend to ourselves. It is our responsibility to take care of ourselves - to protect ourselves when it is necessary. It is impossible to learn to be Loving to ourselves without owning our self - and owning our rights and responsibilities as co-creators of our lives."
- Robert Burneya
, is a codependency counselor, grief therapist and author.
Love is a meeting of two souls, fully accepting the dark & the light within each other bound by the courage to grow through struggle into bliss.
I celebrate setting healthy boundaries!
I take down ONE unhealthy boundary today!
I leap into Love's arms because I know I will be caught.

Set yourself Free!

"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are."
- Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, is Clinical Professor of Family and Community Medicine at the UCSF School of Medicine.

"We may tell ourselves that love is not really available. but the deeper truth is that we don't entirely trust it, and therefore have a hard time fully opening to it or letting it all the way into us. This disconnects us from our own heart, exacerbating our sense of love's scarcity."

John Welwood, is an American psychotherapist, teacher, and author, known for integrating psychological and spiritual concepts.

"The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go. The future is not even here yet. Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it. Worrying is worthless. When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment. Then you will begin to experience joy in life."

- Brian Weiss
, is an American psychiatrist and best-selling author.
To often we do not say what we are feeling in our hearts and we hold back our true words of love, courage and compassion that should be said. When you become courageous enough to express the Truth of how you are really feeling you set yourself free and align with the vibration of your Truth.
This is when miracles, synchronicities and amazing things begin to happen. At first it might be a little rough because you are clearing out everything that isn't true for you.
Once you've reached a clean slate, your Truth will set you free, your Truth will make you happy and your Truth will always provide for you.
Your Truth will deliver a life greater than you have imagined. All you have to do is let go of what is not true for you and let it in what is.
I attract an authentic life!
I express myself authentically and fearlessly!
Instead of getting bitter, I choose to get BETTER today!

"We waste a lot of time running after people we could have caught by just standing still."  
Mignon McLaughlin, was an American journalist and author.

"Every positive change--every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness--involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception."
Dan Millman, is an author of fourteen self-help books, currently published in 29 languages, the most famous of which is the semi-autobiographical novel, "Way of the Peaceful Warrior".

"People talk about the reality of their life as if it is important. And we want you to understand, it's only the temporary indicator. Do you go to the gas station-your gas gauge is on empty-do you go to the gas station and look at your gas gauge in horror? "How did this happen? Why, why, why did this happen to me?" Do you lay your head on the steering wheel and just sob? "Oh, look what it's come to. I'm finished. I've lived all of this life, and look where I am." Or do you just fill up?"

- Esther Abraham-Hicks, is a best-selling author and motivational speaker!
The only way to learn forgiveness is to be betrayed.
You might understand the intellectual concept of forgiveness, but you will only learn how to truly forgive when someone has done something that requires you to love them and let it go.
Life demands these hurtful experiences for you to learn how forgiveness feels, it could be no other way.
If there is anyone in your life that you must forgive, instead of seeing them as someone who has hurt you, try to see them as someone who was sent to teach you forgiveness and thank them for this precious gift - then forgive them, and let it go.
I release & I let go and let LOVE guide my life!
All is really well, seriously!
I love to laugh at myself at LEAST once a day!
I become what I am seeking instead of chasing it.

I learn from Life!

"In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you."
Deepak Chopra, best-selling author and speaker.

"I found that every single successful person I've ever spoken to had a turning point and the turning point was where they made a clear, specific, unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50 and most never make it at all."

Brian Tracy, is a best-selling author and speaker.
The Guest House 
by Rumi

This being human is a guest house. 
Every morning a new arrival. 

A joy, a depression, a meanness, 
some momentary awareness comes 
as an unexpected visitor. 

Welcome and entertain them all! 
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, 
who violently sweep your house 
empty of its furniture, 
still, treat each guest honorably. 
He may be clearing you out 
for some new delight. 

The dark thought, the shame, the malice, 
meet them at the door laughing, 
and invite them in. 

Be grateful for whoever comes, 
because each has been sent 
as a guide from beyond.

Do not look with your eyes to find your treasure. Feel with your heart and at once you will know who you really are.
I embrace my emotions and do not run from them!
I learn from life!
I enjoy not knowing and being in the moment!
From now on, I thrive! Plain and simple!

I Love!

"It's the beautiful minds of this world that win overbeautiful faces. They win hearts by winning minds..."
Anna Karina, is a Danish film actress, director, and screenwriter and muse of Jean-Luc Godard.

"Real freedom isn't subject to how others estimate our value; it is in realizing that none are free who find their sense of worth wondering how others measure their lives."

Guy Finley, best-selling author and speaker.

"You cannot let go of anything if you cannot notice that you are holding it. Admit your 'weaknesses' and watch them morph into your greatest strengths."
Neale Donald Walsch, best-selling author of "Conversations with God".

"There can only be one solution to any problem: a change in attitude and in consciousness.Through the power of consciously focusing on the things that we create in our imagination, we give them the 'nudge' that brings them through the barrier from the unreal to the real.

And herein we find the secret of propelling our heart's desires from the state of imagination to the reality of our everyday lives: It's our ability to feel as if our dreams have already come to life, our wishes are fulfilled, and our prayers already answered."
- Gregg Braden, best-selling author & speaker.


Just keep your Heart open. You may think that because of what has happened in the past that it will continue to happen now and in the future. But that is a falsehood.

Meet today, meet this moment with a new perspective. Stay with the uncomfortable feelings, respond with love instead of reacting from fear. You can choose to paint a new future with an adjustment in your attitude right now.
If you love someone, love them without stopping your life or expecting anything from them. If you miss someone, allow yourself to EXPERIENCE that emotion. Instead of trying to change anything just be open. Right here, right now.
If you shut down you let fear win. Let love in today. Be brand new right now.


I love.

I allow life to be exactly as it is today.
I allow myself to be brand new right now.
I forgive myself and let it go.

Do Not Fear!

"Do not fear. Look beyond what's dying to what's being born."
Marianne Williamson, is a best-selling author, motivational speaker and just a plain amazing woman.

"Somewhere in your make-up there lies sleeping, the seed of achievement which, if aroused and put into action, would carry you to heights, such as you may never have hoped to attain."

Napoleon Hill, from his groundbreaking book "Think and Grow Rich".

"The whole course of things goes to teach us faith. We need only obey. There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening, we shall hear the right word."
Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the leader of the Transcendental movement and his works have refueled a modern awakening.

"I've been driven all my life by a spirit of adventure and a criminal level of optimism. I believed in my dreams because they were my only option. The people who make it to the top - whether they're musicians, or great chefs, or corportate honchos - are addicted to their calling. You have to honor the gift God has given you. The people who get the call are the ones who'd be doing whatever it is they love, even if they weren't being paid."

Quincy Jones, has been nominated for 79 Grammy's and won 27 Grammy's. He is a conductor, arranger, producer and composer. 
Complaining continues to create the vibration of what you don't want. Today, take your focus off of what is wrong and focus on what is right and how you desire things to be.
Put all your love, energy, mental power and decision making towards what you want and do not entertain thoughts that are to the contrary.
You are MORE responsible for the way you feel than your environment, circumstances or relationships.
Step towards Love today, step towards the solution.
I call forth my dormant potential by walking with the Faith that my dreams are real!
I am too blessed to be stressed!
I celebrate the newess of today!


"Enduring and resolving challenges seems to be the hallmark of our journey, often described as the desert experience of the dark night of the soul. This dark night of the soul's emergence may seem daunting and discouraging, but growing into Individual power inevitably creates some pain and discomfort. Yet it also offers us the chance to emerge at a higher level of mastery and satisfaction. Like moving into a new home, starting a new job, or entering a new relationship, the difficulties we face in embarking on the journey often mask its potential for greater joy and fulfillment."

Caroline Myss from her book "Why People Don't Heal, and How They Can".
"Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, "This is what I need." It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment-not discouragement-you will find the strength there. Any disaster you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege!! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures, followed by wreckage, were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You'll see this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit strength, it comes."

Joseph Campbell, is "the" master of myth and the human condition. Although Campbell died in 1987, he lives on through he work and the many stories he has inspired.
The Gift of AngerBy Mastin Kipp
Oh this hot coal of anger
How it can burn to the core
Of anyone who touches it's surface
But this fire, this rage of fear
Is a friend in hiding
The light of anger, the blessing of it's heat
Is that it melts away all the frozen shadows
Of our past
And sets them free to fly into the
Light of our awareness
Anger is a compass pointing towards
The blocks that keep Love from us
When anger becomes your friend
Love is sure to follow
Meet all your blocks with understanding
And this hot coal will cease to burn you
And begin to warm the frozen parts of your soul
Here is the gift of anger's heat
To express a grief and find a blessing in disguise
To break your heart
And find out that this is the only way for it to be
I meet challenge with excitement!
I become more by facing my fears!
Anger shows me how I can love myself and others more!
Love is my only gossip!

Don't Take Things to Heart!

"Don't take anything personally. Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves."
Don Miguel Ruiz, is a best-selling author and speaker. 
"Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world."
Eckhart Tolle, is a best-selling author and speaker. 
"Suffering is not holding you. You are holding suffering. When you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you'll come to realize how unnecessary it was for you to drag those burdens around with you. You'll see that no one else other than you was responsible. The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival."
- Osho, was an Indian mystic and teacher.
Don't play small! Stand up! Take charge! You are doing yourself and others a disservice by catering your actions towards how you think others will react.
Instead, just be yourself, exactly as you are. When you are simply being yourself you will attract everything that is in alignment with who you truly are. You will be shocked to see who drops away.
Their absence will leave a space for new and amazing relationships to enter your life. Just be you, and let everyone else do what they may. You are not what others believe you to be, you are what you know you are and nothing else.
Just be.
You will be rewarded for your courage with a life that reflects your true essence instead of an invented identity created to "please others". Ahhhh, doesn't it feel good to just be!?
 I bring to the world what I feel it missing from it.
I take nothing personally. Their business is their business.
I choose to feel good now and let go of anything that doesn't fit that picture.
