Are you willing_

Be willing. Commit to loving yourself no matter what. Forgive yourself for your mistakes, because we are not made to be perfect. Commit to being yourself, because everyone else is taken. You were made different for a reason. Commit to surrounding yourself with love because love casts out ALL fear. With a cup full of love, fear has little space. Overfill yourself with love. There is no fear in love. The thought of being punished is what makes us afraid. Therefore we shall indulge ourselves with love. Commit to loving others because we all need love. Commit to being who you were destined to be in this world because tomorrow isn’t promised. Time waits for no man. Commit to doing something different because what you are doing is not working. Commit to upgrading yourself and not your phone because you DESERVE it more than your phone. But it begins with a commitment. Are you willing?

believe

Believe and release. The moment you begin to activate your belief muscle, you automatically begin to release things. Things that are holding you back from being completely free. Things that make you feel like there is no hope and that it is impossible to move forward. Things that have been toxically glued to you since your childhood. Things that can’t accept your success. Things that turn your smile upside down. Things that you make excuses for over and over again. And if you can’t relate to this, replace the word things with the word people and you will see that you are not too far off from this statement.

See, something happens when you begin to believe. These things or people will begin to slowly step back because for the first time you have decided to stand firm in what you believe in. Your belief can be in anything; whether it is in God himself, happiness, peace, chocolate cake or coupons. It reminds me of the saying, if you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything. You see, small things such as this can make a huge difference in our days before us. So I encourage you to believe and release anything that is holding you back from being free.

White Seagull Flying on Sky

Flap your wings and SOAR! You are not designed to stay in a nest. You are created to STEP OUT of the nest and fly. It is impossible to soar without flapping. Flapping allows you to prepare for your flight. Though it may be scary to think about falling, you must step out and do it anyway. You must fly by faith and not by sight. It’s okay to close your eyes for a moment but hold on tight to your faith. You were made to soar. You are no longer an egg, your hatching days are over. That is the problem today, many eagles are flapping around with an “egg” mindset. They have grown out of the nest and they are too afraid to step out of their comfort zone. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, understood as a child, thought as a child but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11) Break out of your egg mindset and SOAR like the eagle that you were created to be.

 

Much love,

✨ Here is an Afro Latina Woman who enjoys to travel. She uncovered this passion as a college student as she studied British Literature in the United Kingdom. During her studies, she was able to visit Caen, France and Barcelona, Spain. It was love at many sights. Two years later, she returned to the United Kingdom cruising through Europe for a month. In this photo she is casually smiling under the Tuscan sun. She shares her passion with her students in The Bronx and donates to college students who study overseas. She is currently mapping out her next travel ventures. A travel a year, will keep your mind awake and a healthy savings account will keep your options open! Travel on my brothers and sisters, travel on! 🛩 •

Pick up your head. ✨ You are worthy. Your voice matters. You make a difference. You are needed. Your presence makes a difference. Your light shines through darkness. You are important. Your smile illuminates any room. Pick up your head. You are precious in the eyes of the lord. You were chosen to be free. Your pure joy is essential for those who are numb to joy. You are placed in situations purposely to restore hope. You inspire others to go after their dreams. Pick up your head and know that you matter. Some of you have never heard any of this before. And I am telling you now, that YOU MATTER… more than you think. #YouMatter ✨🤗✨


 

With lots of love,
