Sister CheckIN - Can you hear me...are you listening?

Today I had an opportunity to #WalkWithAFriend who needed a listening ear. It was more about me understanding than her seeking advice. This walk was so much MORE than #showingUp365ForMe to put another trek in the books but rather about me being present, fully present to listen and not judge. I experience GREAT JOY when creating safe places for purposeful, life-changing conversations. Since becoming a self-care Freedom Fighter turned self-care steward, I not only help to give voice to the transformational benefits of self-care but also create and/or support organizations and advocates who are committed to empowering others to live free and thrive. I am my sister's keeper. To see hear her...and be fully present as she cries out. I will pray for and with her believing GOD who is attentive to her cries. THE LORD has given me HIS GRACE to walk alongside to comfort and care for my sister.  2 Corinthians 1:3-5 The Passion Translation (TPT) 3 All praises belong to the GO

Sister CheckIN - Start and Stop and Start Again...

🙋🏿‍♀️#SisterCheckIN - My Wednesday was a full day of starts and stops and starting again which means i breakup my 30 minutes in 10-15 minute increments to get my 30 minutes done.

This was a problem for me, as i would tell myself, "If you don't do 30 minutes straight it doesn't count." WOW was i hard on myself or what?! 😬 #crazyThinking Living free of #perfection , my focus is #showingUp365ForMe . The return on my investment is yielding tangible results i didn't realize were possible for me to achieve. i am better informed of #myNeeds and i'm enjoying the added value this plan of action has brought to my MENTAL and HEART health well-being. The STRESS PROTEST continues as i live #TheCelebratedLife365 💚🦋💜  Mark 11v24 - #iBelieve


Welcome to JUNE 2019 😃 i Celebrate YOU 365 ! I really do! This is more than something i say, it is how i live in community. In community, it takes on many forms. I celebrate occasions based on what they are. Births, deaths, promotions, retirements, graduations, Memorial Day, Easter, New Year's Day, etc. How i celebrate people is much different. Celebrating you is based on how i #LIVEinCommunity with you...our relationship . HOWEVER, if something negative upsets our relationship, then i must have the ability and compassion within me to be able to celebrate you anyhow.  Here's what i mean... Growing up, i was reminded often "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."  This applied even if they were mean to me or had said something unkind to me. My parents were trying to get me to see this behavior was rooted in something bigger; most likely unforgiveness. To forgive is to stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for an offense, f
