Begin Again

Happy August! Can you believe that we are entering the 8th month of 2020? So many things have happened and taken place the last 7 months. None of us could have imagined that we would be living in the midst of a pandemic. However, we are STILL here. We are here for a purpose and a reason that is still unfolding.
As we begin this month of new beginnings, I invite you to begin again. There may be some dreams, plans, __________ (you fill in the blank) that you for whatever reason halted because of circumstances or people. I invite you to dig deep and operate in the boldness that you possess.
Beginning Again is the invitation to intentionally and deliberately make a choice to start anew. Whatever the setback or situation, tap into the power that is inside and begin again.
I am rooting for you. I am excited about your future. (mine too :))

Disconnect to Reconnect

Disconnect to Reconnect

Scroll…Like…Heart..Share….Scroll some more….

It’s ok to disconnect for a few. Take some time to read a book or maybe journal some thoughts.

Be Still.

Breath and realize that this will not last forever. Take a screen break and turn off all screens and have a conversation..

Self-Care at times requires you to take some digital steps back and reconnect with yourself. No Tik-Tok, Instagram, FB, Twitter, or YouTube…nope just You.

Feel your heartbeat.

Inhale peace & exhale negative thoughts.

Create a haven a peace and love filled with grace towards yourself & kindness towards others.

So…if you feel like you always need to be “on” posting, liking, sharing, and more…I invite you this day to take a pause for a few &

Disconnect to Reconnect to You.

Marching

Happy Women’s HERstory Month. It seems like just yesterday we were beginning a brand new year, but now we have marched forward to March. 🙂

March means many things to many people. For me, it is my birthday month (enter celebratory clap here..lol), the continuation of lent, and of course Women’s Herstory Month.

We (humankind) all have a story to tell. This month however focuses on the transformative stories of women and their courage to triumph in the midst of it all. March is a time to honor women who have played critical roles in our journey and to celebrate the ones that have gone to be with the ancestors.

What story is your life telling? What story will they tell about you, when its all said and done? How does your life speak?

Your story truly does matter. Share your truth. Tell your testimony. Make an impact. You never know what impact your story can have on another, if you never tell it.

Happy HERstory Month!

Selah.

When is the last time you…Selah. When is the last moment you paused and reflected in your current space about that particular moment?

With a list of to do’s, errands, meetings, calls, more meetings, and just stuff, our lives can get consumed in all of the doing that we stop being.

Being present in the moment.

Being mindful that we should give and receive grace towards ourselves and others.

Just plain being.

It’s hard to “be still and know that God is God” when we are constantly on the go. The sacred art of selah reminds us that even the Creator rested, we too should find time to rest. We should find time to set aside and just be.

As a practitioner of self-care and an encourager to others of the same, I get alarmed 😱 when I sense others “plates” are full. I sense their “energizer bunny” going and going and going until what…and what for.

While I must admit that at times my plate, bowl, cup, and every utensil is full at times, this is nothing to be proud of. We should all make the time to get back in rhythm and selah.

In divine creation, the Creator created the splendors of the world including humankind and then rested. In the Gospels Jesus healed, delivered, proclaimed, AND Jesus got away and rested. We too should rest.

Rest, selah, pause, and reflection are vital components of a healthy rhythm of life. The song book of the Bible, Psalm reminds us that selah is a rhythm of living. We inhale. We exhale. We sleep. We wake. We should selah.

My prayer for you during this journey is that you will carve out moments in your day to be still. To take moments in your present living and selah.

Until next time….

Selah & Blessings
