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.
“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.
It’s ok to start over as many times as needed.
You are worthy of second chances.
Take time to understand your journey.
Learn from your mistakes and start something wonderful.
The lesson is in the moments between failure and success.
Your ideas are valid, never let them die.
Find a new path and write a new story.
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.

Some called it intuition, sixth sense, a hunch, a feeling, my grandmother calls it gut feelings, but no matter the name, I always listen to it and pays attention. That feeling that’s crawling between your soul and your bones, it’s always trying to warn you, to tell you something is not right. Often times we ignore it and ended up paying the consequences.
This poem speaks of the truth of not listening to your gut feelings.
These walls no longer
This house without
Your warm smile
No longer feels like home
A broken link
A body without hands
You were the epicenter
Of my world
A beautiful disaster
I saw coming
But couldn’t turn
This poem along with many more can be found in my book Sackcloth & Silk.
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” Desmond Tutu
I know it’s cliché, I know you’ve heard it over and over again. Don’t give up on love.
So hear me out for a second!
Someone you love and trusted has ripped your heart wide open and you are left with the brokenness, the betrayal, the hurt and the feeling that you will never love or trust anyone again.
For some, the betrayal is unthinkable, and you can’t even bring yourself to talk about it. For some, you are still carrying the resentment and anger in your heart. For some, you shut the world out and fall into a dark place. For some the pain is too great and you made a promise to never let your guard down.
No matter how wrong things have gone for you, I want to encourage you today not to give up on love. Whether it’s a friend, a spouse, a brother, a sister or a lover, you have to get up, forgive them and move on.
Stop going back and reliving the pain. Forgive the person that hurt you, then forgive yourself.
Don’t give up on love. Never give up on yourself. No matter how many times love has let you down.
I believe one day when you least expect it, love will find you, and someone will tell you that you are their greatest hope and their sweetest blessing.
It’s not impossible, you’re not too old, or too broken, stop telling yourself that you don’t deserve love, that no one will ever love you. Start changing your pattern of thinking, let it all go and open your heart to the future and all the possibilities that awaits you.
After all you are my greatest hope.
There are good things waiting for you! I hope you know that, I pray you believe that.
All of us in our own way are dealing with something we rather not speak about. We are imperfect, we are tired, we stumble through our days trying to hold on to the promises we made to ourselves, but on the hard days, I remind myself that I am still here, I am alive and bless even in the midst of my circumstances. No matter how dark the days are, I can still choose to let the light in.
This is your reminder, the light is always with us, in us and around us, choose to let it in today. Whatever you are going through I pray you find the courage to overcome and find peace again.
I love this quote by Earnest Hemingway, “We are all a little broken, that’s how the light gets in”
I think it’s fitting for the day and time that we are living in. Normal as we know it no longer exist and we are learning how to pivot and adjust. There are some deep darkness and even some hopelessness in the lives of those we love, and it’s up to us to show them that they are stronger than their circumstances. There’s light along the broken path, Show them the beauty in accepting the truth that change is inevitable and they can rise stronger than before.
HOPE, COMING BACK HOME
You are worthy
Of the music in your soul
The air upon your skin
That has finally return
To your eyes
You told me of the darkness
How you fought and won
And I could feel hope
Bending the edges
Letting the light in
I could see joy
Coming back home
To the soft places

Meet me here, where the sky touches the earth, and our love is bound to the stars. Written since the dawn of time, our love has broken down all barriers, visible and invisible. We are worthy of this love, this beautiful unwritten truth that has found us at our worse and saved our tornado souls from drowning.
This poem is about finding that one person who connects with you on the soul level. A true kind-hearted person that will lay everything aside just to see you smile on your worse day.
When you find that one person
That gives more than they take
That loves you unconditionally
In good times and bad
That refuses to give up on you
No matter what
This kind of love is rare
If you have it
If you’re searching for it
I pray you find it
If you’ve lost it
I hope it finds you once again
If you’ve found someone that is rare and genuine leave a comment for me: would love to hear about it
