Not every move you make is going to be cheered on by the people you’re surrounded by, or who you’d like to get closer to. Be confident in God’s promise for your life, and you can be confident in yourself and visions. Root for yourself, unapologetically.
Caution: Taking the time to reflect on where you are, how you got there and where you would like to be may result in weak knees and the awareness of lemons flying at your crown from out of nowhere. However, doing so is necessary. We all must perform self-evaluations. I mean, the world around you evaluates you every millisecond of each day; might as well get to know your true self. If you don’t, you could miss the opportunity to dodge a fast pitched lemon and find yourself searching for your crown, instead of sipping on a cool drink of lemonade that you made from it. Champagne splitz in my bag…SWAG.
Face the “makings of you” with courage, LOVE and open arms. There can be only one you and everything that you have encountered and endured has made you the force to be reckoned with that you are today. Be fierce, fearless, faith-filled and forever in flight…growing stronger daily.
I don’t care that it took Beyonce’s Formation to light the fire for you Queens, just keep it burning with your self-awareness and self-love. No matter how the day ends, you will be a part of it so make your position a powerful one. Don’t lose yourself. If you do, you have lost it all. Sip that. 😉 #IJQ365
Now that I am no longer in denial, I can say with the utmost certainty that I Invited you into my life 5 years ago. Unbeknownst to me that you had many names, names that I did not know were yours; names such as lover, friend, significant other, love of my life and so many more. It was with that invitation that I allowed you to poison my heart, mind, body and soul with your lies and false hopes; as well as fake promises of a wonderful life together. There were never any intentions for a partnership, team building or love. There was only a quiet competition; a competition in which you will never be a worthy competitor.
Every time you remove yourself or I remove you, I leap forward three levels. I used to think that praying for your death would keep me from being blessed, so I decided to become more specific and pray that your existence would become dead to me, and so it is.
It is with thankfulness, goodness And gracious mercy from
God, that I can say that your position in my life is finally proper… Behind me, and beneath my feet. It is very comforting to know that your trip back to the place from whence you came is not only one way, but it is eternal.
May you reap all that you deserve. No love lost, only self-love gained.
