”Turning Pain Into Beautiful Possibilities”

2 years ago on this date I received my BA from Columbia College 😃👩🏽‍🎓I was so extremely proud, but so massively depressed! I hid it so well and couldn’t wait to get home and get back into my bed. I wanted to die and nobody understood, all they saw was the beautiful young woman going after her dreams!

Thank you to my friends who pushed and believed in me when I could have cared less. I am forever grateful for all of you!!! As I sit back and look at these pics, I can’t help but thank God, thank God for not giving up on me! He knew I had a purpose on this earth and I intend to use my talents to share my testimony!!! #youcandoit #idid #goafteryourdreams #cof2016 #koala

Daily Reminder….Spiritual Growth

#dailyreminder

Being with other spiritual individuals is among the best things you are able to do to maintain an attitude of spiritual wellness. A lot of individuals are so centered on the material aspects of life. They believe spirituality is something you only do one day a week.

Seek out like-minded individuals so you feel comfortable with your spirituality.

Have a great day 💞

Mindset Monday…💞

#mindsetmonday

A lot of folks battle with the idea of being deserving. They feel that there’s something amiss about them. That’s why they feel they don’t deserve happiness, love, riches, you name it. Here are some things to avoid when trying to change your life and love yourself more. When you’re trying to feel you do deserve all the best.

1️⃣ Stave off equating yourself with other people, particularly if they have more than you of whatever. You’re unique and your situation doesn’t match anybody else’s. See yourself as an individual with your own exceptional range of influence, which you sincerely have.💪🏾

2️⃣ Stave off equating your present life with your life as a youngster. You were fundamentally powerless as a youngster, as is every child. What was then, when you were a youngster, doesn’t manipulate what can be when you’re fully grown.🙌🏾

3️⃣ Stave off damaging thinking. It’s said that individulas have between 50,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day – – most of them damaging. If most of your thoughts are damaging, and they’ll be unless you make a concerted effort to alter them, just think how you’re perpetuating negativity in your life.

Friday Feeling….Recovery is Possible💞

#longpost

This was me 2 years ago being seen for a anxiety attack a little before I decided I wanted to end it all, the second picture is from last week when I was celebrating life and being an America 🇺🇸

I keep posting this pic as a reminder to myself and to you all that in due time all things will get better soon. Yes you don’t see it now and Yes it seems like God doesn’t here you, but I promise He does!

Here I am a suicide survivor turning my ”pain into beautiful 🦋 possibilities “ using the second chance God has given me to heal others and share why life is worth living!

~I know you’re bills are overdue

~You’re relationships are on the rocks

~You’re children are acting out

~ You can’t seem to shake one sickness after another

~ You lost your job, hope, will, and motivation.

Yes girl….I was here as well and believe it or not ending my life wouldn’t have solve a thing. Just think 💭

What if you hold on another day, week, hour, or just one more minute!

What if everything you wanted was right around the corner.

What if all you hoped and prayed for came rushing through that front door 🚪 if you just hold on!

Now you are probably wondering why I’m telling you all this…Girl I tell you this, because I was you!😌

I also tell you this because I’m Alive and well, living a life full of everything I have been praying for!

Nope, everything isn’t perfect but I have transformed my thinking and the way I see life! Everything that happens to us is for us…..

For example, losing your job might mean God has a better one in store, but you wouldn’t move so He had to help you out….remember all your complaining!

Losing that special someone, 🤷‍♀️🏽 hell maybe God was showing you the signs all along but you couldn’t or should I say wouldn’t let go!

You have the perfect business, but you haven’t gotten one client….well I started my first biz with only one client and if I would have given up I wouldn’t be 20 years in and retiring!🙌🏾

So I’m telling you girl hang in there, cause I’m a living witness that things get better!🙌🏾💞

Happy Monday…😃Smile

Happy Monday friends,

A simple smile can make such a difference. For instance, the other day I mishandled a dish and it fell down on the floor, breaking into bits, producing a big mess.

Now, I could have been furious with myself for being clumsy and thinking “here’s another reason why life is awful!” But I did the opposite. I began to smile and kind of make fun of myself for not being able to hold on to that plate correctly. As I cleaned up the mess, there was no bitterness or anger. As a matter of fact, I did it with a smile on my face…I executed it with peace. So if you find yourself in a similar quandary, just think of the bright side, and don’t be shy to poke fun at yourself. You’ll quickly realize that peace finds its direction much more easily to you when you smile.

So smile today for your peace, for your sanity, and peace of mind😄
