Spring: Loading…

I know we are ready for a change. Winter seems to have grabbed on tight and apparently is having a hard time letting go. We are all ready to shed the layers, wear lighter clothing and get ready for the next best season after Spring which is Summer ( my birthday season🎂♥️). We have experienced our 4th Nor’easter and everyone is about fed up at this point. Spring breaks for some have been dissolved and as a result it has forced others to work all the way until June (If you’re in education).

I must say I welcome the delay. It proves how much God is in control. The plans we make are never our own. We must always leave room for God’s plan. There’s more of an appreciation for the season when it finally arrives. Continue to move in gratitude and be thankful for this moment. There are some who will never get to experience the unpredictability of our lady, “Mother Nature”. This is all in preparation for the new season that awaits us. Be thankful for the “snowdays” which gives us time to reset and restore our bodies. To spend time with loved ones or to binge on shows we never make the time for. Think of the delay in the change of weather as a way of slowing us down. So before you put up another post or rant about where is Spring, find LOVE in the wait. ♥️

Grow Your Garden

It was a month ago this day I never imagined it would be my last engagement with him. A month ago we exchanged our last laughs, shared how our day went and got caught up with plotting events and trips that we were never going to take.

You see everyone wants a garden but no one wants to take care of it. It take more than just laying the seeds down and covering it up with the soil. You have to water it, make sure it’s given adequate light, remove and debris or weeds that might start growing around it. You need to be an active participant in your garden. Think about how you feel when you see your flowers start to bloom, the bright vivid colors that stare back at you. It’s a beautiful feeling.

Relationships equate to a garden. I realize not everyone is ready to get their hands dirty and put the work in to seeing things grow. That doesn’t make them bad people, they’re just not meant for you. That is why I walked away. I decided that I am committed to seeing growth for my garden. I know that my garden requires a special kind of LOVE and attention that I will not waver on for anyone. I might have LOVED you but I LOVE me sooo much more. ♥️
