When your soul is broken, it is common to give in to depression, questioning one’s worth and even suicide- I have been through all three. But there comes a time you have to make a conscious choice, a decision only you can make, to start a new chapter in your life, close the old chapter of your past and walk on the path of healing. It will not happen overnight, but God’s grace and strength will guide you. You only have to ask.
With healing comes CONFIDENCE.
Confidence in Accepting and Loving Yourself,
Confidence in being Beautiful, Feminine and Free.
Free to be who God made you to be.
Always be yourself. Never try to hide who you are. The only shame is to have shame. Always stand up for what you believe in. Always question what other people tell you. Never regret the past, it’s a waste of time. There’s a reason for everything. Every mistake, every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you. Grow from it. The only way we can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself and most importantly, do your thing and never apologize for being you. — Unknown
i thot. i’d never see the day.
the day. the sun. turned blue.
the clouds. dark.
and the heavens. began to weep.
lightning. coursing through the sky.
shocking the earth to reality.
the roar of the thunder. screaming. deafening. almost… almost. as if. in pain.
fear. gripping. loneliness. aching. helpless. hopeless. darkness.
just when it seemed like the world was coming to an end.
bleakness. dead. stillness. quietness.
the sky opens. first a trickle of light.
spreading. touching. feeling. soothing. warmth spread like joy. peace.
the earth still. scared. not knowing. huddled.
afraid. afraid to embrace. to look. to experience.
then it came.
the still. soft. silent. voice. saying. softly embracing. smiling.
I’m still here.
I never left.
when I’m with you I have trouble looking at you because I’m afraid I won’t be able to take my eyes off you and you’ll catch me starring at you
that is so uncool.
but I wish I’ve got a photographic memory, to capture each moment second by second, and print them out and put in my album made specially for you
that will be so cool.
cos no matter where or how far or if I never get to see you again
I don’t want to ever forget.
curve balls. hard knocks. tears. challenges. despair. heartbreak. sadness. failure. misery. despondency. weakness. death…
success. winning. laughter. victory. joy. love. happiness. success. ecstasy. jubilation. strength. birth…
dream. passion. talent. doubt. believing. disappointment. hard-work. failing again. hope. getting up. faith. focus. not giving up. making it happen.
I can feel it in my bones. Oh God! I’m so excited, heart beating fast, toes tingling, eyelids twitching, ear burning, contractions coming stronger.
Almost here! Almost here! Almost here!
I’ve Got This. I’m Not Giving Up. I’m Going to Keep On Pushing.
Just a little while longer 🙂
God always gives us a fresh start, it’s called today!
The Bible never once says, “Figure it out.” – but over and over it says, “Trust God.” He’s already got it all figured out!
