I have decided to remove the word hypocrite from my vocabulary because I believe that we are all a work in progress because we are all constantly changing, improving and rearranging who we are. People are the ones who try to put labels on us and tell us how we should function and fit and operate. It really does bind us up not to explore our inner selves and be free to walk in whatever we feel comfortable at the time. Don’t take on the dogma that you can’t be flexible with even in your own being and your own soul. Know that life is not about being tied down to one thing or one conviction but instead the beauty in the journey is to openly admit that you don’t have it all together and you probably never will be for each experience and growth you can be ok with being whoever you are whenever you are and at whatever place you’re at without explaining yourself to anyone. It’s your process and it’s your journey and not everyone can accept you on every level you are and that is ok. Be ok with not everything being ok and at the same time trust the process of life because what I know for sure is that nothing in life stays the same and most of the time it even gets better. Love Jesus with your whole soul and let everything else fall into place... #BeGoodToYourself

Being stuck in a mindset or a flow that isn't
Monday, May 11, 2015
It’s been a while since I have sat down and wrote anything because I have been so busy and really words haven’t come together in the correct sentences that I would have liked in order to rise from the pages and communicate my thoughts. I had to walk through some personal pain and just get through it every day by choosing not to have regret but rather to say, believe and receive this statement: All things are lessons that God would have us to learn regardless if they come to us uninvited or if we invite ourselves into uninvited places. The hardest part about being a teacher when it comes to anything but especially when it comes to spiritual issues is that you are required to live what you teach and to believe that what your saying is not just some get by quote that will make you feel better but rather it is absolute truth with an unchanging depth of honesty and reward.
I’m learning so much right now in my life and as I continue to step forward, move forward and embrace what I want to define me I am flowing in a rhythm unapologetically and without excuses. If it happens regardless of how it feels in the moment I say to myself “What is this here for” recognizing that there is a lesson in everything even if the lesson is to teach you disappointment from others behaviors. I am now trying to condition myself to pray for their depravity rather than allowing it to create bitterness in me. At the cross of Jesus we all die to everything about ourselves: Our views, our perspectives and most importantly our egos. What we want and think must die at the cross of Jesus in order for us to live. People may be able to try to make your physical comfort uncomfortable but remember no one can get in your mind. Your mind is where your imagination is allowed to be free and where your dreams are allowed to live fully without limitations. People, situations and life may try to break you down but remember all things are lessons that God would have you to learn. #BeGoodToYourself
