Seasons Change…..

image

I’ve learned that things change, people change, and it doesn’t mean you forget the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn’t mean giving up… it means accepting that some things weren’t meant to be.

Faith And Courage….

image

Faith and Courage is what will get you through this life. In Life by Angie Flores.

image

In life there are people that will hurt us and cause us pain, but we must learn to forgive and forget and not hold grudges. In life there are mistakes we will make, but we must learn from our wrongs and grow from them. In life there are regrets we will have to live with, but we must learn to leave the past behind and realize it is something we can’t change. In life there are people we will loose forever and can’t have back, but we must learn to let go & move on. In life there are going to be obstacles that will cause interference, but we must learn to overcome these challenges and grow stronger. In life there are fears that will hold us back from what we want, but we must learn to fight them with the courage from within. God holds our lives in his hands. He holds the key to our future. Only he knows our fate. He see’s everything and knows everything. Everything in life really does happen for a reason: “God’s Reason”.

The Beauty and Strength……

image

Women has strength that amazes men. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She hold happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when she feels like screaming. She is happy and loves when she is afraid her love is unconditional. There is only one thing wrong with her. She sometimes forget she is worth praise in her personality in every shape as a mother, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a teacher, a
wife..

Looking Back And Smiling……

image

“I was taught from a very young age that life is not easy. You have to fight for your dreams and keep on moving forward. Its okay to look back sometimes too, its a reminder where you have been and what you been through. It makes you realize how far you have come and keeps you motivated for the future”

image

When I look back at all the things I been through and see how much I have grown from them I smile. God has been with me the whole time. To hear this from important people in my life, because they witnessed seeing my many changes and growth. It is also confirmation. I am still pressing on because I have more work to do.
I know a lot of you can look back at difficult times where ones have wanted to see you fail. They wanted you to remain broken and hurt. They wished bad things on you because they are the ones that’s really hurting. Well the best remedies for that is to move forward and of course prayer. It’s what I did and going to continue to do

I hope you all enjoyed your Mother’s Day Weekend! I did! Happy Mother’s Day to all the Great Moms that’s putting in dedication and hardworking into your kids!

Natural Beauty In Mind, Body, Spirit, Self….

image

When you are balanced and when you listen and attend to the needs of your body, mind, and spirit, your natural beauty comes out…Christy

In 2007 I was under a tremendous amount of stress which was taking a toll on my health. I began to lose weight rapidly and very fatigued and having no energy. I went in for a check up and had bloodwork done. The results came back that my Thyroid levels were abnormal. I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. I was put on medication. Well after almost a year if being on the medication, I still was losing weight and feeling the same way. Yes I was also still going through some stressful things as well. In beginning of 2008 my friend Tasha came by to check on me after talking to me on the phone. Tasha works at Kaisar. She found me in the bed unable to get out. Before she came by she called a favor with one of the specialists at Kaisar getting me an appointment to come in the same day. Dr. Olerich saw me that day and orders me to go to have a Thyroid Scan the next week. After having that done I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and Graves Disease. After my scan the Tech gave me a Good Talk about stress and smiling and laughing. He wished me luck and prayers. So after all of this I had to speak with Dr. Olerich about my options. I choosed to have Thyroid surgery to have my Thyroid removed and it also took away the Graves’ disease. I had surgery June of 2008. After I couldn’t talk for a while and went home with a drain tube in my neck. My recovery time took a while and my kids were a big help to me. I thank God for them!

Fast Forward to now I have a scar which if you look at my photos you can see them. I am very Healthy and very Happy with my decision to have my Thyroid removed. And I want to say to you about Stress, don’t let Things you can’t control consume you. Some things you have to C’est la vie to and go on! Having inner Beauty means taking care of your Health and You all the way around. Thanks for stopping by…

And Special Shout Out to Tasha!!! Much Love to You!

Little Things….

The Little Things
Remember, in life; you must enjoy the little things.
Because you’ll never know what tomorrow brings!
Just be thankful that you can wake up each day, Never let any precious time in your life slip away.
Take a moment; enjoy just sitting in the grass, Look at all the trees and just watch nature pass.
While you’re sitting, think of what you’ve been through.
Think about the future and what you want to do.
Now that you have thought about the old and the new, Think about something that is more important, you.
Continue enjoying all the things in life, big or small, Because smiling a lot is better than no smiling at all.

Poem by Mark Nissan

I Love reading and found this poem which I shared in here. It is exactly how I feel. I enjoy all the little things as well as the big things in my life. Which are: My kids, my goals that I am or have accomplished, the Great friends I have, My Pastor (Love hearing and receiving Wisdom and Knowledge from her), and this list goes on and on. My message to you is to take in and enjoy The Little Things….while you still have the chance to. Life is too short not to. Be Blessed!

Self-Centered….

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

image

Some  people thinks only about themselves. They are not aware of anybody or anything around them. They only consider what’s good for them. Or how a certain situation benefits them. Well there will come a time when we are tested or put in certain situations,  and hopefully a lesson will be learned. A wake up call that the world does not evolve just around you. We are all in it to help one another…..

Knowing When To Let Go…

“Life will be much easier when you will finally understand which person to hold and whom to let go from your life” Susan R Sharma

For me when I started to let go of toxic people in my life. It showed me who was really in my corner and honestly wanted the best for me. I felt like years of unnecessary burden had been lifted. So my advice, that I’m still taking, is to take some time and make necessary changes and adjustments in your life. Keep yourself involved with positive people. Keep God close and Stay Prayed up! I continuously pray and ask God for Wisdom, guidance, and strength.

Perfect Imperfections….Unapologetically Me!

image

” There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty”…. Hussein Nishah
I want people to know and accept me as I am. I love talking and meeting new people. I think I’m a cool laid back lady. As far as with my outer beauty I want my inner beauty to shine on the outside. I’m not perfect but God made me perfect in his eyes, and I embrace this. Accept yourself, Love Yourself! That’s Beauty!
