Letter To My Ladies: Encouragement to get us through each week!

  • Learn From Your History

    Every experience you’ve had shapes your world now.  If you grew up without a father, how did that effect you? If you grew up in an abusive family, how did that effect you? If you experienced sexual abuse, how did that effect you?  If one of your parents were addicted to drugs, how did that effect you?  If you grew up in foster care, how did that effect you?  Did you get celebrated for your birthdays?  Did you grow up on government assistance?  Did you have a lot of food to eat when you were a child? Did your parents graduate from college, or are you the 1st generation college graduate? Did you receive hugs? Did you hear I love you.  Were you encouraged or discouraged?
  • It’s Time To Expect More‼️

    I’m just here to encourage you this week to expect the thing you’re praying for to come to pass.  I want you to expect good news. I want you to expect to see approved, not denied.  I want you to expect the phone call that will change your life for the better.  I want you to expect the new job, expect the promotion, expect relationships in your life to heal.  I’m saying congratulations by faith.  
  • Make Your Happiness A Priority

    Are you happy?  Does your happiness depend on other people?  You are responsible for your own happiness.  If you expect others to make you happy, you'll always be disappointed.   A lot of people wait on things or people to make them happy.  If we do that, we'll be waiting forever.  I believe happy people are thankful for what and who they have in their lives.  They could complain, but choose to be thankful for what they have and work toward what they want.  They know someone somewhere would be more than thankful for their bad days.
  • Try Again, Then Try Some More ‼️

    So, this week I want to encourage you to try again.  If you gave up or quit, it’s time to try again.  This time around you’re wiser.  This time around you’re stronger.  This time around you won’t have your emotions on your sleeve.  This time around you’re going after it until you get it #PERIODT
  • Dreams Do Come True

    So, what's the goal you've always wanted to accomplish?  I'm here today to light a fire under you so you can start dreaming again.  Plan A didn't work so pick another letter of the alphabet and keep it moving.  It can happen, and it will.  You have to make a choice to work towards your goal daily, weekly, and monthly.  It could be going back to school, writing a book, starting a business, losing weight, eating healthier, or having a better career.  
  • Putting a Wall Up Blocks Your Blessings

    This week's affirmation:  The wall I put up is not protecting me, but limiting me.  I will knock it down and accept all the good and perfect gifts coming into my life.  I will no longer block my blessings.  
  • Being Open To Learn Helps You Grow!

    Being open to learn is the beginning of growth and it means you've realized things need to change.  It is true that you do better when you know better.  Knowledge is power but activated knowledge is what changes everything.  You will know if you're open to learn if you are open to correction.  It’s only certain people you should take correction from as well. 
  • Forgive Yourself So You Can Move Forward

    Forgiving myself has been one of the hardest things I've had to do.  I know I'm not alone so I decided to be transparent today.  One day I realized I had to stop carrying the weight of my past decisions and let it go.  So every day I decide to forgive myself and give all those feelings of failure to God.  I still find myself having to readjust my thoughts and focusing on the blessing of today instead of the past.  Sis, I want to let you know we can't go back and change anything.  The only thing we can do is learn from our past so we won't make the same choices over and over again.  
  • Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

    Some of the deepest hurts are mental and emotional.  These hurts will cause your thinking to change.  We can't help that someone chose to hurt us.  Sometimes it's so unexpected and it knocks us off our feet.  However, our healing is our responsibility and healing of the mind is the beginning for everything else to heal in our lives.  Like a said before, as soon as a negative thought pops up you cut it off and say a positive thought or scripture instead.  The more you say it the more you will believe it and the more you will think it.  
  • Be Proud of Your Growth

    Even when you're eating a sandwich you have to take bites to eat the whole thing. That's how growth is.  You can see where you want to be but it looks so far when you look at the whole process at one time.  Take it one step at a time, one bite at a time, one day at a time.  The fact that you know you want to grow is something to be proud of.  There are people who settle and remain the same.  I'm proud of you for deciding to move forward.  Yassss Sis!!!! 
  • When To Give Up

    What you do when that obstacle pops up determines a lot.  Will you give up and throw in the towel or will fight through it?  If someone told you life is easy and you're just gonna be skipping through each day then they told you a lie.  Life can be challenging and you will find yourself facing days where you want to give up.  Don't give up.  It's ok to take a break but don't throw in the towel.  Use that towel to clean off your eyes so you can look at things from a different perspective.     
  • Stop Expecting "You" From People

    Today I want to talk about expectations.  I saw a picture message today that said:  "Remove expectations from people, and you'll remove their power to hurt your feelings."  The worse thing you can do is expect "you" from people.  People are going to do whatever they want and however they want to do it.  All we can do is expect their actions to speak louder than their words.  Then we believe what we see not what they say.
