Quote of the Morning!!!


Hello everyone!! I hope that everyone woke up this morning in their right mind and truly feel blessed today. Today I went searching for my “Quote of the morning”and wasn’t sure what I was going to find but I think this quote is perfect for how I’m feeling at this time in my life. I feel blessed to be able to share it with you in hopes that you share it and feel blessed as well.

So many times in life we depend on others to make us happy or we wait on the happiness of others to make us happy. This is not right! We hold on to past hurts and trauma. We cling to it like it keeps us alive. This is not right!

When you let others produce and maintain your happiness, you are setting yourself up. When you hold onto what someone has done to you in your past, you are setting yourself up. When you can not forgive, you are simply setting yourself up.

Quote of the Morning:

“When you forgive, you heal your own anger and hurt and are able to let love lead again. It’s like spring cleaning for your heart.”

– Marci Shimoff

When you hold onto others, past hurt, and people who have angered you, you are giving them YOUR power! You are allowing them to have a piece of you and you don’t even know it! It is only when you forgive them that you can move forward. It is only when you let go that you will begin to prosper. It is only when you are able to be truthful with yourself and others are able to be truthful with you that you can hold love in your heart. It is only when you don’t allow people to hurt you, that you can have abundance and live in it.

Cleanse your mind of all the thoughts, fears and demons that burden you from day to day. Cleanse your heart of hurt, trauma and hate. Cleanse your body of any parasites that are sucking the life out of you. Cleanse yourself! Believe and have unwavering faith that you are healed from your past! Love yourself, it’s the first step to finding true love.

Quote of the morning!!


Happy Friday everyone!!! Hopefully you have been blessed this morning with the ability to wake up, get out of bed, read this blog post and do much, much more today!! Still in honor of National Women’s History Month, I have quote from another beautiful woman. May it inspire you this morning to do great things!

“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”

-Helen Keller

What is your worthy purpose? Have a great day!!

First things first!!


Many of us move through life not knowing the simple pleasures of love. We think we know but then as time wears on and we move forward we find out that we were wrong. We attach ourselves to people who are no good for us and we know it! We let them suck the life out of us and we know it! We either have or develop low self esteem and allow people to do and say whatever they like to us.

Why? Why do you allow others to take your energy, love and prosperity and pass it off as their own? Do you love yourself? Okay….Okay….that should have been my first question!!

First things first…..Do you love yourself? Really think about that question because that is the most important question that you will ever hear as an adult. I’m not talking about being conceited or vain but I’m talking about having a healthy love for yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you don’t know what love is. If you don’t love yourself, you don’t know how to show someone to love you!

The things that you do for yourself, that person that you love or “say” you love should do that AND more. Love isn’t perfect but the person that you love should treat you like you are a diamond! Why? Because you are! You are unique! You are deserving of all the love in the world and should be treated as such.

So first things first…..Do you love yourself?

Quote of the Morning!!!


Today’s quote of the morning:

“We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.”

—Emily Dickinson, American poet

It’s a beautiful Monday morning!!! Make it count!!

The Again And Again Praise

Jesus, Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the again and again




I know that I need you still again and again,


I know that the battle you have already won,

Jesus I know and before all declare you as my Savior

And God’s son,


Having said all that,

This does not mean that I will not have to come to you

again and again,

You are aware of this and that is how you said for it to be,

Depending on you for all and everything,

I thank you for always making provision for all my needs and

for totally forgiving my sins, taking away penalties and understanding me,

I so dearly need your help,








Every kind of  blessing that I am in advance thanking you for

and that I am always confessing again…

When he’s away I feel like a piece of me is missing
I sit in my bed and think about all the love and kissing
My heart beats fast just to think about him
Laying around wanting nothing more than his touch

The love of my life and the best I ever had
He leaves me wanting more of everything he gives
From the way he touches my skin
To the way he places those special small kisses
I’ve come to the conclusion that my love for him can’t be a sin

Many have tried and only he has succeeded
To provide my life with all the things I really need
From his smile to the way he loves me
He has done it and made me come to see
That love is really real and he has me…..exclusively.

Quote of the day!!

I love this quote…..

“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. They way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do in order to have what you want.”

– Margaret Young

We all go through life thinking that money will make us whole and keep us happy but at the end of the day… is the root of all evil.
