So freedom is a gift but it comes with a cost of letting go of what was and having faith of knowing what it shall be and who you shall be. I found this freedom the hardest place but has brought me to a great place, not a perfect place but a place in life where I’m progressing and loving
So, this I thought was fitting to start with because it’s a start of something new, but in order to start something new it’s a letting go of something old and. This word comes from root word of liberation and same as deliverance, which is so great because I know for myself liberation was not in my vocabulary for a long time. Honestly for years I was not at liberty to me and it wasn’t because of people wouldn’t accept me , it came back to me not accepting myself, my genuine self and learning to stand in that. Now not accepting myself came from insecurities that were developed from words and actions towards me from others but the root was from me not accepting me in my own heart and mind and being sure of that. The opposite of freedom and liberty is slavery and bondage, not by visible chains or restraints but my chains were internal and restraints were mental that I created because of my flaws, mistakes and life challenges, i forgiveness and the forgiveness was not from not forgiving others because I was good at that it was not forgiving ME !. And Woe , that was a burden on me for years because I never forgave me for things I accepted and did . But NOW, it’s a new day and time and I understand that even with all the flaws and wrong I’ve done and the imperfections , that I am still wonderful, I am still great I am still beautiful and Still worthy. And I can no matter what be used to help somebody else. So, even on my darkest day I can still be a light to someone day But I know I gotta forgive myself for yesterday so I can live in Today.
Psalms 118:5 ; when hard pressed , I cried to the Lord; he brought me to a spacious place
I hope this tea of freedom and liberation soothes the mind and Freedom is your!! So free yourself and begin to live great
Sipping On Single
Its another week, and I so excited to share more with you guys again this week. This week I wanted fun and something really relevant the unbelievably can fit everyone right now, I know the title doesn’t seem like it but Trust me it does
Okay lets start with the definition of single from Webster, there was a few, but the ones I like to use from their definition is : Consisting of a unique whole Individual , Unbroken and undivided. And wow that says a lot right there. Being single is not just a state of relational status but a state of where you stand all on your own. Being unique , whole, unbroken and undivided individual has to be a standard no matter where you are in your relationship status
Right now I’m in single not married status and I found myself now finally being truly okay with that because to me now , single does not mean lonely, sad, lacking or something is wrong with me. Honestly being unmarried again was something i was scared of because of society and image it places on divorced mother of three, like it is the end and will be a struggle for a long time coming. Now, I’m not say life is easy in this season but learning to understand singleness and the benefits of it is something to appreciate and take advantage of during this time.
One thing about learning to be single is becoming whole and unbroken, which is the work only you can do rather your married or unmarried , dating or in situationships. Becoming a whole single person consist of getting to know you for who you are at every level and understanding where you are in areas then working on fixing and building those areas in your life, and everyone has areas that can be elevated or fixed no matter where we are in life. whole kind of collides with word unbroken because something that is whole can’t be broken, that doesn’t mean it can’t have cracks or imperfections but still be whole. So knowing that being whole and unbroken does not mean you won’t have flaws or imperfections, it means that you are aware, accept and understand your imperfections are there to keep you unique and an individual but also there to keep you humbled to know that now matter how beautiful you are, how much you have and what you have accomplished that your not perfect, because there is no perfect person. So the Beauty of Becoming whole and unbroken is filling the cracks with the positive that make you who you are and picking up that pieces in life that broke you and understanding no matter how broken you were or now are , all broken things can be put back together with the right work and time invested in your unique single self.
You know understanding single is knowing that stewarding over myself is so important and stewarding over who i give myself, my time , my energy and my intimacy to is vital to protecting my single self. Because as being single we have the option to choose who, how , what and with whom we will spend our time with and invest energy into. I realized that I can’t offer all these things to everyone because not being particular can be draining , a waste of my time and others time and time is way to valuable especially as i age, My time is already limited and i don’t have time to waste. But I’m enjoying this new Single , unique , woman I am today, because she is woke now and there is no stopping her. So I challenge you to get to know who you are for who you are , not defined by children, husband , family or friends but defined YOU and who created you. Learn more and more about yourself daily, embrace all the things about yourself , yes flaws and all. Correct things about yourself while loving yourself and give yourself a break and allow yourself to make mistakes and learn. I challenge your as I have challenged myself to make self care a priority because if I don’t take care myself I can’t take care of others and that pertains to mind, body and soul. And lastly Affirm yourself daily , encourage yourself and let yourself know that no matter what you are an amazing, unique , wonderfully created and here for a purpose with your Awesome Single Whole Self
Because even when your in Marriage there is nothing like being a whole, single person, because when two whole , single people come together in unity it is even More beautiful. So take these steps one sip at a time daily but make sure your SIPPING on your SINGLE SELF
