Your future wife’s presence will make you realize why it was all worth it. You see right now you aren’t ready, your heart is too guarded and cold for a spirit as free and captivating as hers. She will push You and make You vulnerable, love you beneath the surface and right now it would run You away, it will be too much. You see you can’t treat her like you’ve treated all the others, and because you haven’t been taught nor are you accustomed to a woman of her essence,God has her on reserve. She is living, growing and evolving into an even better woman, while he silently works on you. In due time, you will see why this moment right now is preparing you for me.
#BMichavery- You just arent ready, but in due time.
A powerful shift happened in my life when I stopped subscribing to habitual socialistic rhetoric of constantly being in search of “a Light at the end of the Tunnel” way of living. The Idea that my happiness, peace and relief from pain, discomfort and disappointment was tied to something or someone who would eventually have the power to control my unforeseen dark state was crippling. So instead I dug deeper ,found that I was the light within the tunnel & I lit that B*tch up. I am not a product of my environment, my environment is a product of the light within me and when I realized and accepted that, my entire life changed. God never puts your sanity, solitude and freedom in the hands of anyone, he has equipped you with every tool you need for the journey he has prepared for you, everyone & everything else are used merely as confirmation to being on the right path or not.#JourneyOf33 #Lighthouse #Page7
The truth is people only believe in how powerful God is based on the power he has exercised in their lives. You will see how strong their belief in him doing the unthinkable in the most unorthodox way is by how they react to what he chooses to do through you. The problem is people think they know God so well that they can predict how ,when, why & where he chooses to bless someone else, and the beauty of my God is he shows out and leaves them gasping for air every single time. Stop saying what God wont do & wouldn’t do in someone else’s life just because it doesn’t align with your biased thoughts, views or sheltered understanding. God doesn’t think like you anticipate he would, and arent we all glad about it.

Let me start by saying this, as women entrepreneurs (some of which who juggle corporate careers) we find it extremely hard to balance self-care and our brand building. Children, relationships, desires and so much more, often take priority while we slowly deteriorate internally, I am no different, but the beauty in it all is I found this jewel, unknowingly. This is way before I got into Yoga or anything meditation wise, I was forced to slow down. Listen! No matter what you do in life the most important thing you can EVER do is take care of your health and body! So often we are so busy chasing dreams, raising kids, being wives, girlfriends, husbands, and whatever other title you hold, we fail to realize that our bodies react to stress in different ways. I believe it was 2014/2015, I called my doctor to set up an appointment for next week because I’d been having pressure in my chest that spread to my shoulder and even made me feel numb in my left finger. She told me to immediately go get checked not to wait because anything with your chest is IMPORTANT. So I did. The doctor said I’m surprised you aren’t screaming in agony from all this pressure. Stress had literally caused my muscle in my neck to become swollen and affect the muscles that are connected from my neck to my back and chest causing them to hit a nerveconnected to my arm, which caused the numbness. ( WAIT WHAT IN THE WORLD! ) All stress related, she gave me options and suggested I get a massage and I called Brenda, I figured she was good BUT I had no idea her spirit and tentativeness would be so soothing to my soul!

November 23, 2005….3pm…. Mom had been playing on the phone ( she was and still is a total jokester) So when she called back this time I said, Mom stop playing and she said Bran listen to me….Im not playing….Brit called she thinks your dad is dead… WAIT WHAT….. I remember her saying Im sending Ahmad ( My step brother) over to get you. I remember my brother coming into the room, I called my then boyfriend ( later husband) and collapsed on the floor…what occurred next changed my life for ever.
Seeing my father in that state, was both scary and heartbreaking, but I got a sense of peace because he looked at ease. but how can this be, how could the man who vowed to never leave us, who took care of us, who loved us with everything he had not be here anymore? I was shocked…I remember going to my father sitting beside him, trying to feel for a pulse, putting my ear to his mouth hoping I would feel his breath, i grabbed his hand It was then …I knew…I took his hat off of his head ( i still have it , never washed it, in my backpack tucked away in my closet for moments when I need him most). I got up, everyone was around, people everywhere, crying, talking and moving all around, I needed to find my sister, My brother, where were they? My sister, literally out of her mind, screaming I DIDN’T KILL HIM, I SWEAR I DIDN’T!….We know baby…We know….My sister has to be the strongest woman I know…(Other than my mommie and grandma of course) But i know God had to know she was strong enough to handle that at 16….Cause at 21…..I couldn’t. My head was filled with so many regrets, why didn’t I just stay the night before like he wanted, and go to my grandmothers the next day, why didn’t I tell him I love him more, why didn’t I call him earlier that day to keep him awake so he wouldn’t go to sleep….WHY!?

As of late there has been a trend or shall I say a huge increase in encouraging people to focus on this thing called “Self Care”. For many it’s taking time to go out, date yourself, shop, read ,pamper yourself, meditate, exercise, or whatever you “Me Time “ consists of. I believe all of these things are beneficial, but for me its a little deeper. I have been an advocate for self love and individual evolution, but you really dont realize just how imperative it is until you are forced to be in a situation with just YOU and you realize that you dont really know how to be with just YOU.
So much of my life has been giving and pouring into others, being other’s emotional dumping ground, their spiritual warrior, their friend,mentor, wife, girlfriend, sister,brother, and so much more, that I only interpreted my worth by what I was to others. Now dont get me wrong, I have taken time for myself, I have definitely focused on myself when it came to goals or things I needed to have done to keep everything a afloat in my life per say, but even in that, I have always thought about how what I was doing, or not doing would affect those who depended on me, or counted on me as their support, morally, emotionally, spiritually or as an outsider who saw me as a mentor, eventually my life became a constant evolution not just for me…but for everyone connected to me. Dont get me wrong I am grateful, but it is draining when everything you give out, isnt being refilled. Continue reading But Wait…What the HECK is Self Care?!
Its been a while, honestly a very LONG while, and I will be completely transparent, I have been so consumed with life that I actually didn’t miss it. I mean sure I know I have had alot to say, and Ive had things I could have expressed, discussed or created news worthy posts about, such as politics, relationships, entertainment, new shows, latest artist, songs fashion, makeup etc, and so on. But I realized that I honestly dont want to talk about those things, well I do but mostly to just past time. I realized I needed some substance, I needed something that I could write about that would actually help me grow. I had to be reminded why I started this blog anyway, I mean what was my purpose…Id forgotten. In the last year, so much has happened, I fell in love, gotten 2 puppies, enjoyed friends, and actually lived a lot, suffered from brutal death of close relative, friends, got my heart broken, etc so forth, and then it hit me, while I was searching for some inspiration, I was hurting, not inspired, angry, and needed to read or hear something that would pull me out of my “slump” but guess what…..I couldn’t find it. Sure there are many lifestyle blogs, some that talk about relationships and getting over heartbreak, some with amazing quotes on being grateful for life and how to build a brand or business (basically staying busy to avoid “feeling”) , there were sites that showed me why I should move on, etc but NONE that showed me how to fight when things are so hard you cant see past the NOW, none that showed me how to pray or what to pray when you arent religious but you are spiritual , lost your way and need to reconnect with yourself internally to heal inside out, NONE that showed me the importance of having faith in letting go when your heart and soul tells you that this was supposed to be “meant to be” but you are now no longer speaking to the person your heart yearned for just a year ago, how to know if you are supposed to fight for it or let go. NONE that helped me really deal with and over come what I was feeling and not masking, avoiding or neglecting the real issues at hand.

So Everyone knows how much I love to be around all things positive , and other encouraging individuals! Well I focus alot of my time on striving to be just as Encouraging. I know many times with so much negativity on the blog-sphere that it is almost UNCOMMON for fellow bloggers, well as i like to refer to us as ( Lifestyle Enthusiast’s) or Lifestyle Journalist’s to show each other Love. BUT that’s one of the ways i’m different, because Continue reading Thursday’s Blog Love Day!! …….This week’s Pick SEE BELOW!
HEY BRAVE STARS!
I must say this year has been so incredible. I’ve learned so many things and i have changed in so many ways, physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotional wise! I’ve learned a few lessons as well, and its hopefully some things that will assist you in starting your new year off as well!!! So many people assume just because it a new calendar year , that everything will miraculously change, and sad truth is , It wont. The true reason for change begins with SELF. Sadly some are so consumed with
old habits, traditions, thought processes and expired goals, unfulfilled relationships, broken finances etc.,that their NEW calendar year will be like previous years. Not because it has to be that way but because it’s easier to say “ Easier said than Done” than to make the changes needed to actually create a NEW beginning. I guess they are hoping or expecting it to miraculously happen. New beginnings have potential of happening every single day you wake up, every Monday you dread and complain about, every Sunday you religiously go to church and go home and fall into the SAME routine, with little to NO change at all. Those are all missed opportunities for change that we neglect. Because we miss a Continue reading 5 Simple Steps In Creating Your New Year FOREAL: Make 2014 Different……
