Woman Of this Earth

I have been very privileged in my life to date to be surrounded by many strong women. My grandmother endured so much in her life, her strength her caring nature and her love for God will always be how I remember her.

My Mother when I see my mom, I see my grandmother personified and as the generations of strong women in my family multiply I see strength where giving up is not an option. It’s through these strong women that I have become my own strong woman, a role model for my sister who is equally as strong she isn’t even aware of all she possesses yet, as I watch her beautifully grow to be a fantastic young woman.

My beautiful tribe of women friends I have collected through the years all with their own battles to face but their strength their character and greatness is what drew me close.

Recently helping encourage a close friend of mine going through her battlefield she inspired me to write this poem and I feel like this Poem could represent many strong women of this earth. I feel very strongly connected to all women, and my wish and prayers are that each one of you will know how amazing you are and dig deep to find your strength and unlock your full potential.  You are destined for so much more than just your current circumstances you may find yourself in.

Woman of this Earth

She is brave
She is strong
She is more powerful than she will ever know
She is kind
She cares sometimes too much
She loves with all her heart
She dances to the sound of her own drum
She is stubborn, but she will listen
She is feisty
She is fierce
She is a woman of this earth not afraid to bare her soul
She is real, and she will tell it like it is
She may drink too much
She may curse
But that’s what makes her authentically her
You see she is diamond in the rough the one you may be afraid of at times
But when you dig deep and see past the facade
You will know she hates small talk but loves to talk
She will argue even when she knows she may be wrong
She is passionate
She is pure
She is not ashamed to say she doesn’t know where she is going
She doesn’t let her relationship status or indecisive career define
who she is because you see she is a woman, a woman of this earth made
for so much more
She will dance across the globe spreading joy in her footsteps
because once you see her, meet her, hear her, you will know
She is a woman of this earth destined for so much more,

SO YOU woman of this Earth embrace all your flaws because you are so
beautiful in all your imperfections, you were never made to be perfect
but to be perfectly imperfect.

I hope my post reaches someone, anyone, that needed to hear this and you can start believing how beautiful you are dressed up in all your imperfections.

Peace Love & Happiness

My thoughts for you for the New Year!

May you take this new year as a new opportunity to try again. Make 2018 the year you set yourself free, free from self-doubt sabotaging thoughts and toxic messes.

Let go of what you cant control, people that bring you down bad relationships that bring out the worst in you.

Let go of fear, for fear is stopping you from all your wildest dreams.Ditch the comfort restraints and start living. Be you, your true authentic self.

Let this be the year you do something you never thought you physically could,may that mean going on your first overseas trip, may that mean running your first half marathon or even something as simple as giving a stranger a smile.

May this year be the year you stop dreaming and start doing. May this be the year you dance through life living loudly not to show off but to be free.

May each changing season inspire you to dream bigger and conquer a fear. May this year be the year you are still and listen to the desires of your heart and set your own soul alight.

May this be the year you live fearlessly not afraid to love deeply and care sincerely. May this be the year you shine brighter than before but don’t fight because when the challanges do come you will be strong in your own strength to defeat even the tallest mountains standing before you.

Yes, as you’re reading this never for a second think you are worthless or you don’t matter because I know there is good in you and even when you don’t believe it or that self-doubt returns remember you are uniquely made crafted with gifts only you have and you have the power to change your destiny. The answers live inside you so start with loving yourself so much you have to share that burning desire to love another.

So these are just a few of my thoughts for you… I hope they make you reflect and make you believe that 2018 can be the year you set yourself free.

As we enter this New Years weekend wherever you are and however you celebrate be safe and Happy New Year!

2018 the year you set yourself FREE!!

 

Peace Love & Happiness

The One that made me Believe in Love Again!

For the longest time, I was afraid to completely open myself up to even the possibility of loving someone in a romantic way allowing my past to scar my future and that’s not ok.

It had taken me two failed long term relationships I had at a very young age and six years to leave me, so heartbroken I was afraid to love again actually! I mean love in all ways 100% love myself and 100% love all the relationships I have made old and new from friendships to strangers or the potential love interest.

There is a part of me so locked up I don’t  even have the key to unlocking it.Until I went on this journey of self-discovery.

I had to push myself to be more uncomfortable with my surroundings to fully understand the magnitude of what I am capable of doing; I had to push myself to be vulnerable and be ok before I could truly be ok with my flaws and accept that, that makes me who I am!

Today I love myself and believe in me so much so that I bring happiness to others because I am happy with who I am becoming!

I feel as if that section of my heart is slowly unlocking itself. I still have lots of work to do, but I am starting now to love freely openly and kindly because I allowed myself to be me 100% me and I am not afraid anymore (ok I am a little scared but I guess doing something that scares you is what life is about right.)

There was one unique individual soul who recently came into my life and gave me a glimpse of hope that not all people want to rob me of my happiness and steal my love but add to it and that made me believe in love again! My deep friendships and connections with people changed right away I felt this unleash of love for everything as if the floodgates has just been opened.

I have that I can’t eat can’t sleep kinda feeling for I am in love with life, and you may not know it, but I thank you, for you are the one that made me love again!

People  definitely come into your life for a reason some stay forever and some come to show you things you never knew existed or just to  make you a better version of yourself.

I haven’t had the urge to write recently until last week when I shared how my life abroad changed me so I  hope this writing phase comes back for good again! I hope you all reading this are enjoying my  deeper life journey more so than my travel journey which will be returning soon. I have been to so many beautiful places since I  have entered South Korea so please stay tuned for that.

Peace love & Happiness
