Clean Out Your Closet

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3568.jpg

While there is less than 48 hours left of 2014, there are some things we need to get rid of.

Go on and open up that closet of yours right now.

You know the closet where you have stored the anger, hurt, resentment, malice, procrastination and failed relationships in.

It is about that time to get rid of it all. Not because a new year is on the horizon but because you’re stunting your own personal growth.

It is dead weight that we have allowed to break down our communication with others, keep us jaded, leave our hearts broken and emotionally drained.

It is gonna take some work and it might not be what we want to deal with but we will thank ourselves for releasing what no longer belongs in our life.

Think about weight loss. When we have dropped those extra pounds after putting in those tireless weeks in the gym we are astonished by the results.

We wanna show off our new figure to the whole world. We feel much lighter, quick on our feet and have way more energy.

That’s the feeling we should strive for by having cleaned our closet. Our hearts and minds will be clear and our spirit renewed. Let’s move into the new year restored, refreshed and revitalized!

Let’s welcome this season with a new perspective, a stronger faith, an open heart, and most importantly a new found respect for LOVE. ❤️

Ode to LOVE

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3549.jpg

Every time I try to doubt you, you always find a way of reminding me how real you truly are.

There is no way I could give up on you.

You find a way to always keep me focused and my heart open.
No matter how much I try to shut you out or turn my back on you, you always find a way of seeping into my soul and filling me with the goodness that it is you.

You are life changing, soul shaking and thirst quenching.

You soften the hardest of hearts and warm the coldest of souls.
I get a chance to experience your wonderful work as you bring relationships closer and stronger than ever.

I get to witness first hand the continued partnerships. engagements, weddings and baby showers that are all created because of you.

You are the glue that keeps the most difficult relationships bonded.

You are water-resistant, bulletproof and made by God.

Nothing can tear the foundation you have built.

You will always be the first thing I think of when I awake and what I will continue to pray for at night.

Until we meet again,
Your biggest fan.❤️

Holiday Love

Sharing some of this “Holiday Love” with you all.❤️

simplyzuzu

With 7 days left until 2015, I find myself having a hard time believing how fast 2014 has flown by.  My father used to always say, “the older you get, the faster time flies.”  I’m finding that to be true.  It has been a little over three years since my father has passed and I notice myself remembering and repeating his sayings often, realizing how much he was right about a lot of the things he would say.

As one year ends and we prepare for a new one to begin, many of us are thinking of the holiday season and making plans to celebrate with our families.  We think of the new year and of resolutions and promises we make to improve ourselves, our lifestyles, relationships, health and finances.  In the midst of all that and the holiday celebrations, there are many people who find this time of year extremely difficult.  I…

All I Want For Christmas

I came across a list of items that resonated with me. It reminded me of all the things I want for Christmas.

Be Present

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3528.jpg

What does that really mean? To be and stay in the moment. Stop yourself from thinking of the next step. Be in tuned to what is going on around you. Take in the world, the people are you. Take in the energy. allow it to flow through you. Stop allowing the memories of your past to bombard your present state. You will miss out on life’s best moment. Practice the habit of being present.

Realize Gifts

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3524.jpg

No I’m not referring to the tangible gifts. The gifts that come from within. The gifts that are felt when you enter the room. Work on sharing your special talents with the world. You were made to leave your mark in this world. Your gifts were meant to be unwrapped and shared with the people in this world.

Send Peace

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3525.jpg

How do we send peace? It is our mere presence that brings peace. Allow The Lord to move through you and wash away any chaos, negative and hostile feelings that bombard your mind and taint your soul. Being at peace is finding a way to become one with yourself. When you are at peace you will then have the ability to send peace. You feel restored, renewed and refreshed.

Be Light

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3527.jpg

This I really love. When things around you are at their darkest, don’t forget to be the light. You have the responsibility to shine your light wherever you go. Provide others with clarity and vision. Shine, radiate your energy so that people become filled. We have been giving the proper tools to guide people through their toughest times. Remember your light is your LOVE.

Plant A Tree

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3526.jpg

In order to grow we need to be rooted. We need to be laid in rich soil given the appropriate nutrients to stand tall. Never deprive yourself of these essentials for it is vital for daily growth. Surround your tree in an environment that is positive and purposeful.

These gifts are needed for this holiday season. Let’s dig deeper in our hearts and less in our wallets. Let our LOVE be measured by the non tangible items we possess. Wishing you all the LOVE this holiday season! ❤️🎄🎁

Soul Food

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/433/73158508/files/2014/12/img_3512.jpg

And just like that all the questions you had have been answered.

You have been in limbo, a state of conflict, uncertain which direction to go in life. But no longer shall you be indecisive. You shall be set free.

God has a way of revealing things right on time.

Trust your intuition: It never lies.

It’s a deeper feeling that can’t be covered up with words: no matter how much you try to conceal it. Don’t ever deny the feeling you get inside.

Have the courage to walk away from anything and anyone that no longer serves you or fills your soul with purpose.

Feed your soul with all the things rooted and grounded. Don’t settle for store bought or canned goods. Your soul should be nourished with all things good, organic and sustaining.

I don’t think we realize how important it is to cherish and nurture our soul. We need to be mindful who we let into our soul environment. Consider this your sanctuary and special place.

Once you develop this habit, you’ll start to feel the difference within.

Put forth the same energy taking care of your soul as you do your heart. ❤️
