Tonight, I had to cry. I'm not really an emotional person, but I still have emotions. I had to let those emotions come out. It doesn't benefit me to let the frustration and anger build up inside of me.

Always remember that you never know what battles people are fighting inside. It takes a lot to remain strong.

But sometimes you to have cry. After all, you are only human. But after I cry, I will smile because I refuse to let anyone or anything take away my peace.

I feel weak when I cry, but I know that I'm strong. Only a strong person can admit to when they are hurting.

It's easy to hurt people, curse people, disrespect others, hit people, and be angry with others.  It takes a stronger person to reveal how they feel, keep silent when needed, maintain their calm, and give love and encouragement to others.

So let the tears fall, there will be a brighter day. Release the pain that has been built up inside. Don't let it get the best of you.

"Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry for anger resteth in the bosom of fools." Ecclesiastes 7;9

Having great leadership and a great foundation is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. It doesn't mean that you don't make mistakes, but rather you are able to get back on track when you get off course.

As I approach 30, I'm so grateful for the foundation that my parents laid for me. I'm especially proud of my father for raising four girls and never giving up on us. It's tough raising girls. He is a true example of strength to me. Although my parents are divorced, my father's love for his family is unconditional.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have had a chance to spend more time with my family and experience what true love really looks like. Lessons that must be learned so that I can be the leader that God has called me to be.

The last seven months have been very difficult for our family, but through it all God has kept us. I'm learning that God will do whatever it takes to accomplish a goal. He is teaching me how to be more caring, loving, understanding, and patient. Through it all, he is giving me peace and the strength to go on.

As I sit here and reflect, I know that I would not have made it through the things that I have experienced without the grace of God. You truly don't know how strong you are until you go through some tests.

When I get discouraged and overwhelmed, God makes sure to send me some encouragement. If you trust in God, he will see you through. The thing is we can't just go to God when we need him, but we must have a committed relationship with him. He wants that real love, through good and bad.

I'm feeling good about going into my thirties. I know that God has so much more in store for me. I will always trust in him, no matter what the situation looks like.

Always learning, always seeking, always growing.

Do You Like It?

Perhaps, we should stopping asking people do they like certain things about us.  I know women especially are good for seeking the approval of other women. Truth is, if you like a certain hairstyle, or a certain outfit, or a certain shoe why should anyone's opinion change your true feelings? It shouldn't. As long as you are being respectful to others, do what makes you happy.

Even though, I know that I'm healthy and I know that I feel good I sometimes want to be assured that I don't look too small. However, it doesn't matter to me anymore because I am happy with who I am. I determined not to let anyone's opinion affect the way that I feel about myself.

When someone says I like it, you get happy. When someone says I don't like it, you get offended, or upset, and then try to figure out how to make them happy. Don't be so easily controlled by the opinions of others.

Social media is just another tool that many of us use to boost our self-esteem. Many times we post what we think people will like. What if we post how we really feel and not this picture perfect life that we want others to believe that we have? You want to know how I know that your life isn't picture perfect, because my life isn't.

But yet we try to convince one another that we're living the life. Many times you're just showing off or crying for some attention.

My main purpose for using social media is not to be liked. I'm here to learn, inspire, inform, and connect with like-minded individuals. You can never be free by trying to live up to the standards of what other people like or what others expect from you. Society tell us to get an education, get a good job, get a nice house, drive a nice car, get married, and have children. What do you have to say about all that? Is society controlling how you live your life?

I personally like to be different. It started from birth. My parents raised me to be different. "And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." I did stray away and tried to conform to the world but now I'm coming back, but in my own way. Your journey will not be the same as someone else's journey. You can't follow others because they say this is what you should do. You have to be persuaded in your own mind.  God is bringing me closer to him by bringing me back to nature. Nature, natural, God's creation, how he intended things to be.
