You don’t need to wait to hear the ‘apology’ to forgive. It may never come. Let forgiveness be a ‘gift’ that is not dependent on someone else’s behavior, but your own generous heart….Ash Sweeney
You shouldn’t wait around for someone to apologize for something that in their eyes, they may not feel sorry about. Yes, even when they clearly know they are wrong. God gave us discernment to do the right thing, be the bigger person to forgive and get past it. Thanks for stopping by!

“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”
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!

” Never give up or lose faith in something that you know God has placed in your life. Be patient and remember there is a time for everything.”
Sometimes we have things that are placed in our lives that are there for us to accomplish or get through. We have to remember that it don’t always happen right when we think it should. It takes Hard Work and Growth to get there in some cases. In that we have to remember that God placed it there for a reason, and it is up to us to keep our Faith and not lose sight. Patience goes a long way. It is frustrating at times but as stated before it’s a Time for Everything to Happen. In God’s Time is Always the Best Time…

“You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.” ― Nicholas Sparks
How many times have we been put in situations where we had to reevaluate our own lives? As for me, I found myself in a situation where I had to put Nikki first and do what was best for my family. I didn’t want to disappoint ones close to me. But after much prayer and thinking things over I came to the conclusion….to H…E….double hockey sticks(!!!!!)with trying to live for them and worry about what ones thought. In the end it’s my life and if they truly loved and cared about me they will understand. If not….well then as always I’ll continue to pray for them.

“Nothing is impossible. The word it’s self says ‘Im Possible’. Go after what you want today. This journey is about more rewards and less regrets.”
On my way to class this morning thinking about my goals that I have set for myself. They are slowly but surely falling into place for me. Set goals for yourself and go for what you want. I’m so much happier with every accomplishment I make! The rewards are a plus for my kiddos! I want them to see mommy succeed. They are my biggest fans and motivators. Love them!

“You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.”
This goes a long way. I set high standards for me and how I want to be treated. I refuse to let ones treat me any kind of way that is beneath me. I have learned to disconnect myself from anyone that is not beneficial to me in a positive way. With that being said, it’s either they learn or move on…..
“Maybe it’s not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it’s about starting over and creating something better.”
Sometimes things that have become displaced in our life wasn’t meant to be. I found myself trying to keep fixing things on my own, when in actuality I needed to start fresh and find myself. In doing so, so many better things have come my way! I’m happy and excited for more great experiences to come while I am starting over and creating something better for me….Have a Great Productive Day!
