Lord knows I’ve had many clouds in my life, just like many of you I’m sure…That’s just the way it goes. Amid the clouds, God made it so to put the right people in my path at the right time to be a blessing to me. For that, I’m thankful so I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been a rainbow in my cloud. Just as they have been rainbows for me, I wish to be that for someone else and you can do the same. It doesn’t take much to do so. Be a blessing to someone else today by lending a helping hand, an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on; by offering a smile to someone’s frown; by simply being there and being present or by sharing a kind and timely message. Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.
Happy Tuesday! ❤️️️️️️️️xo
Once you dream it, believe it. When you do, you are believing that your dreams are achievable and that you can make them come true. That’s why it’s important to never let go of your dreams or to just look at it as a general wish.
Start living your dreams by believe in yourself and putting in the effort. Make a plan towards achieving them. Use the bumps along the way as fuel to keep you going. There will be setbacks but that only means that you’re getting closer to reaching your goals. Keep pushing through and keep faith. With God, all things are possible! May your dreams come true!
Happy Tuesday! ❤️️️️️️️️xo
Actions speak louder than words! It’s really that simple. Words prove who you want to be but actions prove who you are. So use words wisely and only when you really have to. Instead focus on those actions! When you do, you let your actions speak for themselves (you won’t even need words). It’s all about less talk and more action but when you do talk, turn your words into action.
Happy Tuesday! ❤️️xo
Life is much more interesting when you colour outside the lines. That’s when you end up creating a masterpiece. So draw new lines and use the whole box of crayons while you’re at it. Use more paper if you need to and create a masterpiece that is perfect for you. Many will try to tell you to stay within the lines but life is not about being perfect, it’s about being yourself. After all, fitting in is so overrated.
Happy Tuesday! ❤️xo
Life is filled with precious moments to make you remember. Life is also filled with challenges to make you stronger. All that you go through is meant to set you up for greatness. You may have to go through hurdles, shed tears or even fight for all of the above but it’s all for the same purpose of helping you become who you are. You are who you are for a reason. You are the blood, sweat and tears you went through. You are the person you fought to become so love yourself just as you are for you are fearfully and wonderfully made!
Happy Tuesday! ❤️️️️️️️xo
Although it may be hard to believe at times but the truth of the matter is…you are more than beautiful!
Has anyone told you that you look gorgeous today?! Well you are…(I mean…have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately?! #gorgeous)
May you experience love that is patient, kind and indispensable.
May you experience love that truly lets you be who you are.
May you experience love that changes you for the better.
May you experience love that always protects, trusts, hopes and perseveres.
May you experience love that never fails.
May love make you better!
I wanted to kick off Black History Month with a powerful quote from Ruby Bridges, the first African American child to desegregate an all-white elementary school in New Orleans on November 14, 1960. Six-year-old Ruby persisted in attending William Frantz Elementary School by marching alongside a team of U.S. Marshals amidst the hatred, threats and daily harassment. She may not have known then nor would she come to realize it for many years but her bravery and courage that she demonstrated in the fall of 1960 would forever change lives and shape a nation.
Don’t follow the path. Go where there is no path and start a trail. -Ruby Bridges
Thank you Ruby for your inspiring strength, resilience and fateful walk to school!
A small act of kindness can go a long way. Think about how addictive a smile is. If someone smiles at you, you will most likely smile back and the pattern continues. Next thing you know, thousands have smiled and experienced a sense of joy (even if only for a second) as a result of the very first one. The same can be said about laughter or any other small act of kindness. I believe that the power of a touch, a smile, a compliment or a listening ear can be exactly what someone needs to turn their life around. So why not do your part…Together, we can change and affect lives one act of kindness at a time.
Don’t you know that you are worth more than the value you have placed on yourself?
You are worth more than one could ever imagine. You are of greater worth than any money or gold. You are worth it all and then some.
Once you know your worth…
*There will be no need to prove yourself to anyone
*There will be no need to justify who you are as a person
*There will be no need to sell yourself short
*There will be no need to require validation from anyone
*There will be no need to settle for mediocrity
Don’t ever settle for less. Know your worth!
Patience is a tough one, especially in a world where most people want what they want, when they want it, or else…
It’s one of the hardest things to practice because when you are patient, you allow yourself to bear or tolerate delays, problems, or pain without becoming annoyed or anxious. By doing so, you are also putting your trust in what’s to come. That is believing in your truth and trusting your journey. Trust that you are on a unique journey, to be duplicated by no one but shared by many. There may be many dealing with similar daily challenges of life but your journey was written for you alone.
No matter where life takes you, trust your journey!
Beauty is all around you. You can see it in all things. There is beauty in you, objects, nature, words, actions, practically everything (if we choose to see it). Explore the details that make all things beautiful. It may not be apparent at first but if you pay close attention, true beauty will reveal itself in one way, shape or form. Where you do not see beauty, create it. It’s all in the way you think, behave and act. Beauty is all up to you!
It’s better to try and fail than to not try at all. If you don’t try, you will never know. Then your wandering mind will start to question “What If…?” (and who wants that, right?!) so why not take the chance or better yet take a leap of faith and just try. Give it your best. Give it your all. Worst case, it doesn’t work out but at least you can say that you tried or you can simply dust yourself off and try again. No matter what, it’s always worth a try.
Sometimes life is easy and sometimes life is hard.
Sometimes you succeed and sometimes you fail.
Sometimes people genuinely care about you and sometimes they take advantage of you.
Sometimes you feel appreciated and sometimes you feel taken for granted.
Sometimes people bring out the best in you and sometimes they bring out the worst.
This can be true for many but my truth is…
Sometimes I’m ok and sometimes I’m not.
I’m ok with that. It’s human nature and I guess that’s just the way it is but I’d rather aim for ‘better than ok’, most of the time.
What’s your truth?
