You are Hope and Love and Pure Light 

You were meant for this life! Look at your heart, it has touched darkness but still welcomed the light. There’s a part of you that refuses to kneel, refuses to accept that this is all there is to life. You are hope and love and pure light. 💡 Follow your heart, it knows the way. The universe misses the way you used to smile. Come on back home to the truth and the beauty of who you were meant to be.

The truth whispered

Down from where the wild things

Dances. At night it held on to

All the light and wait for you to

Touch the darkness, to lend to them

Your beautiful sight.

Let It End

Let it end

Let the reign of

Self-doubt go

It has done its time

It has caused you enough grief

Let this new season

Bring you peace

Forgive yourself for

Thinking you are not worthy

It’s time to heal

It’s time to rise

Let it be known that

You did not give up

Even when doubt lingers

In the corners of your mind

Putting yourself back together

Was not easy

But your courage to forge

A new path has given you strength

To carry on

..

Lately, I’ve been focusing on embracing what’s before me. Letting the past rest and living with true purpose.

As you take a deep look at your life and your future, change what’s not working, keep what makes you happy. Live in the moment and let your joy be known.

I would love to hear from you! leave a comment below.

Inspiration

Finding inspiration in our everyday routine is important, because it keeps us from getting bored and stagnant. It also challenges us to see things differently. Inspiration can come from the simplest of things, we must be open and ready to be inspired.

Each day we have an opportunity to try something new, to do one thing different from the day before. it could be simple as going for a walk and being present in the moment.

Take nothing for granted, make each moment count.

I would love to hear how you stay present and inspired each day.

The Power of Hard Work

Hello, I am wishing you all a beautiful inspiring week ahead.

I write, I hope, I dream, I inspire, I cultivate and nourish the life I’ve built. Succeeding is not an option because the work is already done. Improving, growing and learning is a must because I put the necessary work in to make it a reality. Never underestimate the pure power of hard work and dedication.

You Are More Than the Lies You Allowed Yourself to Believe

Sometimes it gets into your soul, and you can’t shake the low dark cloud that’s hanging over your head. The chatter, the lies, the bitter words, all the things you allowed yourself to believe, all the things you are still holding on to. They are not true; they don’t define you.

Here are 5 steps to help you accept how wonderful and bless you are:

1. Let it go and set your soul free.

2. You are enough even on the rough days

3. You don’t need validation; your authenticity is your truth.

4. Embrace your uniqueness and your strengths.

5. Let the world see your light, you’ve hidden it long enough.

Bonus 6. Forgive yourself and others, this is the only way to move forward.

The days are full of trouble, but the days are also full of hope and beauty. Every morning you get an opportunity to wake up and choose life.

Grief

I want to encourage you today to hold on; to not give in to grief. It will rob you of your best days, but you will survive. There’s hope at the bending of the road, a shift in time that will forever connect the lineage of hearts and hands, of soul and spirit. What you’ve lost will never be forgotten and what you’ve gained will live in your heart until the end of time.

This is for you on the hard days

I know you’ve tried your best

To live with this emptiness

But the world

Thunder through your chest

And most days

Bravery calls out

For brokenness to take

Its place

You’re never one

To walk away

But your soul is weary

The nights are longer

And your heart

Is full of grief

There’s Power In Accepting Your Truth

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” —Thomas Edison

It’s time you understand that there’s no need to hide your failures, there’s no need to be ashamed if you’ve started something that did not worked out. There’s power in accepting your truth, there’s liberation in understanding that this is YOUR life, and you can change course, you can start over, you can make something new as many times as it takes for you to be happy and fulfilled. I know you’ve heard this before, but let me tell you again, all the things that happened in your past DOES NOT define who you are or who you can become. So, start again and again and again until you’ve mastered the art of acceptance, starting over and success.

These 8 quotes on starting over that will help you look to the future with hope.

  1. It’s ok to start over as many times as needed.
  2. You are worthy of second chances.
  3. Take time to understand your journey.
  4. Learn from your mistakes and start something wonderful.
  5. The lesson is in the moments between failure and success.
  6. Your ideas are valid, never let them die.
  7. Find a new path and write a new story.
  8. Patience is the key, what is yours will always find you.

Be proud of your journey; learn from the unfavorable experiences, expand your heart and grow and rise and become the best version of yourself.
