Growing Pains

-Hey B.P.L. Family! I am so proud to say I’m done with class!! I’ve passed my state exam and now I’m in Birthday mode!!! By the way, there will not be a Journey next week, as I’ll be celebrating my birthday! Our next journey will be on June 1st. Now, let’s dive into this week’s journey. Ready to explore? Cool beans! Indulge and Enjoy!-

This week, a memory came up in Facebook Memories, and I’d like to share it with you. Take a look…

Man, I can’t believe how selfish I was! How did I genuinely believe no one from my past should find happiness before me? Why did I think this mindset was okay? Why did I even care whether they were happy or not?

I mean, yeah, I was cool with all of my exes. Even when the relationship ended on bad terms I would always be sure to forgive them or ask them to forgive me, and we would continue our friendship. But, why was I so invested in them not finding their significant others before me?

Truth? Well, I never let them go… Any of them. When our relationships ended, I would hold on to the smallest piece of it as a keepsake. A little bit of hope that we would find our way back to each other.

Perfect example… My ex-fiancé and I were off and on for 10 years before we even got engaged. We literally refused to let each other go. We would enter into new relationships destroy them and then run back to each other. It was complete and utter dysfunction, yet, somehow we thought marriage would make it better…

What I hate the most about this time in my life, is how I justified my actions. Whenever one of my exes and I got back together, I would say “ This has to be God telling me he’s the one.” Anytime I did something I knew I shouldn’t have, I would convince myself “God understands,” and continue down my road to destruction… Looking back at it now, it’s a little embarrassing…

The greatest change I’ve made over the last year is losing the “me first” attitude. Learning how to cheer for everyone, whether I’m in the race or not! I mean, I’ve always been the type to want everyone to succeed, I just wanted to get there first.

*** Hahaha***

I genuinely thank God for the relationships he placed the men of my past in, leading them to marriage because it forced me to let go… ALL THE WAY! And, during that letting go process, I was forced to be honest with myself. I cried, a lot… I screamed, too much…And, I hated myself, too often… After a while, however, God slowly started to reveal who I am destined to be.

Now, I smile, uncontrollably… I’m genuinely happy, constantly… And, daily I’m on track to be a better me, AUTHENTICALLY!!

This journey as a whole isn’t an easy one. I’m so thankful to have all of you to share it with! Please remember, no matter where you are in life to: Enjoy your growth process, growing pains and all! Have a Happy Memorials Day (May 27th- My Birthday!) See y’all June 1st!!

Incomplete Days

~Hey Hey!! I pray you’re all making peace with the unchangeable elements in your lives. This week has flown by! I was supposed to inform you all, in last weeks adventure, there wasn’t going to be a journey this week… I completely forgot!

I’m still in licensing class for my job, we’re actually prepping for our state exam next week (pray for my success), therefore, my focus has been mainly on this class. I’m not going to go too deep this week (I have a lot of studying to do). I hope you’re still able to enjoy our journey together!! Ready? Indulge & Enjoy!!~

So here I am, sitting in this class. I’m stressed about the material because I don’t feel I’m retaining it the way I should be… However, I continue to try each day. My instructor is pretty dope though! She has a way of teaching the material while making it less boring. One of the main things I love about her is, story time is all the time. She shares so many intimate family stories and somehow finds a way to tie them to insurance.

While telling a story this week, she shared something her Mother said often… No sooner than she said it, my mind started to explore days I’ve felt incomplete…

Have you ever had one of those days? A day where everything seemed to go “right,” however, you still weren’t satisfied? I mean you did everything you set out to do, but, the day still doesn’t seem complete? As the sun goes down, you wonder what would have made the day better, however, nothing really stands out? Well, think about this…

3 Things You Need Daily to be Happy:

– Something to do…

-Somewhere to go…

-Someone to love…

(Quote from My Instructor’s Mom)

Now, reflect back to one of the days we were just talking about. The ones that felt incomplete. Was one of these things missing? Was there nothing to do that day? Nowhere to go? Or, maybe you just couldn’t find someone to love on for the day?

We, the human race, forget the importance of giving love as well as being loved. I feel just as good giving love as I do getting it. It has nothing to do with physical intimacy. Love can be shown in so many different ways…

Spending time with people you care about. Volunteering your time doing something in your community (literally covers all three). Intentionally, doing something nice for an un-expecting recipient.

For me, hearing this was exactly what I needed. I’ve had so many incomplete days, and, when I think about them, one of the three was always missing. It wasn’t always the same element missing either. The conclusion I was able to come to? By implementing this small guide to my day, I’ll never have an incomplete day again!

Recommitment

~Happy May Family!! How’s your week treating you? I pray you’ve been working, daily, to become a better you! As you all know, I strive for improvement daily and this week has been no different! I’m in a tough state licensing class (courtesy of my job), however, this hasn’t stopped me from reflecting on my flaws. Ready to explore? Me too! Indulge & Enjoy!~

This week, while learning a million and one foreign topics, I struggled to stay committed to my health and fitness journey… I went from eating extremely healthy to eating cheeseburgers and fries for lunch. I also skipped meals (6 small meals daily), struggled to drink a gallon of water a day and stopped working out.

As the week progressed, whenever I’d pause from studying, I would hear one line continue to play over and over again…

“…But you promised…”

I knew right away what the phrase was referring too. I also knew I was too stressed to eat healthy at the moment. But then, I thought about how far I’ve come, and knew some big girl decisions had to be made…

Here’s my recommitment to myself…

Dear Beautiful Inspiration,

Thank you for holding me accountable. Thank you for maturing and realizing we can’t continue to live life making excuses. You are my constant reminder, proving, I deserve better than what I give myself.

You’ve, patiently, allowed me to make mistakes without allowing me to step too far out of character. Whether it be allowing someone responsible for hurting me continue to be a part of my life or, making myself overly available to someone I’ve just met, you always keep my best interest at heart.

Yet, I’ve let you down so many times…

I’ve already put you as a priority, however, most times I fail to trust your judgment. It’s crazy because you’re the one that stops and thinks before speaking… You pray before reacting to frustrating circumstances… And, you show compassion before assuming the worst.

Today, I promise to consult you before making choices. Today, I promise to support your decisions. Today, I give you authority to intrude in areas of my life I don’t allow you access to. Today, I recommit myself to you!

You will teach me how to love not only me but those around me, also. You will continue to teach me my genuine beauty. You will allow me to be my authentic self, with no apologies. And for all you do, for me, I have no choice but to continue to be in love with you!

Take the wheel beautiful!

So often we underestimate the support we can give ourselves. We’re always looking for someone to motivate us, to tell us how great we are… But what about the voice inside, already shouting, “YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO!”Listen to that voice, trust that voice, honor that voice, and see where it leads you.

The Road Traveled Matters (Break Down)

~Oh Hey Family!! I pray the last two weeks have been felt with love and joy! I had a beautiful vacation, spending some much needed time with my family in Kentucky!

Before we get started, I need to say if you haven’t read The Road Traveled Matters, I highly recommend doing so to ensure you understand this week’s journey. (It’s 3-5 minutes… DON’T BE LAZY!) This week, as promised, we are going to revisit The Road Traveled Matters, and journey through the meaning behind it. Ready to explore? Perfect! Indulge and Enjoy!!~

I’ve realized, in previous journeys, when I share thought-provoking information with you guys, I don’t give you a chance to form your own opinion. I want to give you all time to explore and digest what we’ve explored and then the following week, if needed, I’ll break down the journey. One last time, if you haven’t read The Road Traveled Matters, please go back and do so at this time…

Alright, so the title itself really is the underlying message I desire to put out. I’ve run into so many people, all on different walks in life, who seem comfortable (too comfortable) “allowing the universe” to dictate their future. Using statements such as, “My story was written long before I got here,” or something similar, to defend why they don’t see a need to live out their destiny. I, personally, do not wholeheartedly agree.

Yes, I am a Christian and I do believe God is the Author of my narrative. However, I also believe God gave us free will to allow us to choose the roads traveled throughout our story. In The Road Traveled Matters, the Prince chooses a road of no work and all pleasure. He didn’t have to have the Princess locked away in a castle, but that’s the one he chooses as his wife.

Instead of doing the work and training to ensure he would be successful in rescuing the princess HE CHOSE, he signed the contract, a black magic contract, giving him access to the strength and skills he needed to slay the dragon. Did it work? YES! He slew the dragon and kissed his princess…

The moment his lips touched hers, the contract had been fulfilled. But everyone knows there’re terms and conditions with ALL contracts. Now he finds himself in the middle of a war, back to where he started, wondering how he can get to his princess…

The road the prince is traveling was not “the universe” nor was it “God’s plan.” God’s plan was him finding a princess, putting in the work, and staying with her. The road he chose made his narrative more difficult. A prince doesn’t belong in war. Unfortunately, because of HIS CHOICES, he has altered his narrative…

What appears to be the easy way out isn’t always easy. We don’t know what’s lurking in the twists and turns of life. However, we know right from wrong. We know nothing in this life is just given to us at no cost whatsoever. Therefore, if we choose to take the easy way out, we have to also be ready to deal with the consequences that may follow.

We have to take ownership of the choices we make in life. We can’t continue to blame the universe and, in some instances even blame God, for the actions we chose to make. I’m not going to give a bunch of examples or go on a tangent of what’s right and wrong because I don’t feel it’s needed. I’m sure you understand what I’m saying.

As always, feel free to ask questions and/or leave feedback in the comments section.

The Road Traveled Matters

~Hey Beautiful People! I pray something happened, this week to soothe your soul. On this journey, I want to tell you a story. I’m not going to explain it nor am I going to tell you why I wrote it… Okay, if you really want to know why I wrote it, just leave it in the comments, I’ll tell you in the next post!

Oh, next Saturday, April 20th, there will not be a post. I’ll be enjoying some much needed vacation time. Posting will resume April 27th. Ready to explore? Alright! Indulge and Enjoy!~

Following the coordinates given to him to find his Princess, he approaches the castle door with caution. After the fight he had just encountered with the vicious beastly dragon, he didn’t know what dangers could be awaiting once he walked inside of the rustic, Gothic-looking castle. He paused and took a long deep drag of fresh air to calm his nerves.

He pulls on the door and to his surprise, it opens without him using any strength. Walking the long dark hallway he hears rummaging behind him. Fearlessly, he pulls his sword and assumes a fighting stance but, the noise was gone. Resuming his journey down the dark, gloomy, tunneled passageway leading him to his princess, he contemplates the choices he made leading to this moment.

Pushing open the door, directly at the end of the hall, he sees his princess awaiting his kiss to wake her. He runs to her and kisses her gently on the lips expecting her to awaken.

**BOOM- POW-POW- POW-BBDDAATT**

Turning to his left his eyes confirm the loud abrupt explosion ringing through his ears, bringing him to his reality. You see, he didn’t get to his princess all by himself. In all actuality, he’s a fearful coward. Lacking faith and strength, he chose to cheat, signing a contract with the evilest man you could imagine… Fairy-tales call him Mr. Rumpelstiltskin and the world refers to him as the devil…

Soothed by true love’s first kiss, the prince was struck with pain, as a bullet rips through the flesh of his forearm. Looking down, he notices a gun in front of him. Diving to the ground, bullets continue to zip past him. Picking up his gun and surveying his surroundings confusion overwhelms him. Then it hits him. He remembers a strange phrase the evil man mentioned as he was signing the contract….

“You can’t have love without war.”

The prince was on a battlefield. Realizing he may never feel the kiss of his love again. Unless… He wonders if he won this war, would he be united with his princess. Still not understanding his life is no longer his own…

Don’t forget to tell me in the comments if you want to know what all this means to me and why I choose to write it this week! Also, remember, there will NOT be a journey April 20th. I pray you and your families a very Happy Easter!!

You Matter

~ Hey Family! This week has been really interesting, to say the least… I’ve seen so much sadness, hate, depression, and misery all around me. I want to touch base on that this week.

Let me be clear, this has nothing whatsoever to do with my mental or emotional state. I am in a very healthy, happy space. My goal of this post is to help someone take the first step in becoming the beautiful individual you are supposed to be! Ready to journey? Great! Indulge & Enjoy!~

I really want to take this moment to say if anyone reading this feels alone, or as if their life doesn’t matter, please know that is far from the truth! Sometimes it’s hard to see your value through all the pain and trauma that life throws our way. There are three facts I want to point out to you. Hopefully, after reading them you’ll see things a little differently…

Despite how you feel, you are very valuable to this world!!!

The life you’re living cannot and will not be duplicated by anyone. There is a calling (purpose) on your life that only you can fulfill! Your struggles are molding you into the individual needed to completely fulfill your journey. Okay, so maybe you haven’t quite figured out what you’re purpose is. IT’S OKAY!! Regardless of your age, race, or tax bracket, your purpose will present itself when you’re strong/healthy enough to handle the responsibility that comes with it.

I mean, think about it, if your purpose fell out of the sky right now, with a blueprint on how you had to live your life, what would you do? Would you be willing to give up any and everything standing in the way of you seeing your journey through? Would you give up your family, friends, or even your spouse?

Your purpose may need for your entire life to be turned upside down. Though this may not be a bad thing, you still have to be prepared for it. This season you’re in now is your preparation season.

Your presence is making an imprint in your communities.

Often times, we don’t even realize the many different communities we belong to. Some days we’re happy, some days we’re sad, other days we don’t really know how we feel… No matter the emotion we carry throughout the day it’s leaving an imprint with the people we interact with and even the atmosphere once we’ve left.

Have you ever walk into a room and just felt “off”? It’s because you walked into an atmosphere that had been shifted by the person who was there prior. Your presence has that same power. It’s up to you to choose how the atmosphere is shifted. Choose wisely…

Someone is looking up to you!

Between school, work, extracurricular activities, social media, and everything in between, we interact with so many people every day. Sometimes, we don’t even know the impression we’re making on the people around us. I promise you, If you were to disappear today there are so many people, other than family, who would miss you.

I know you don’t realize it but people look up to you. They admire the way you walk through life. They admire your drive and your determination to not give up. They aspire to be a little bit more like you each day. Though they may never tell you, you may be the lifeline that’s keeping them afloat

If when reading this post, you connected on any level, I want you to know how valuable you are. I want you to know how loved you are. I want you to know that you cannot be duplicated. Most importantly I want you to know I’m here for you.

If you ever need someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to email me at beautifulpassionatelove@gmail.com.

Let Go, Move On

~ Hey Hey! I pray this week pushed you to do something unexpected for someone un-expecting! As you know, weekly we journey through what I’ve focused on all week. With that being said, we’re going to switch paths from Breaking Free. If we need to go back there, by all means, we will, however, today we’re going to close the door on trauma Breaking Free dealt with. Ready to journey together! Me too. Indulge & Enjoy!~


Yes, they hurt you…

Yes, they made you cry…

Yes, they stole from you…

Yes, they used you…

Guess what they also did…

MOVED ON with their lives…


You’ve held onto the sadness…

You’ve held onto this pain…

You’ve held onto the memories…

You’ve nearly driven yourself insane…

Guess what you’ve also done …

Become COMPLACENT


Back then, you didn’t have a choice…

Back then, you were too young…

Back then, you didn’t have a voice…

Back then, you couldn’t even run…

Guess what else you couldn’t do…

Determine what is YET TO COME


Now, you are BEAUTIFUL

Now, you are STRONG

Now, you are a FIGHTER

Now it’s time to MOVE ON!!!

This week, I kept hearing a voice say, “Let go and move on.” At first, I was offended… “This is my journey and I will dwell on my pain for as long as I want…” I continuously thought to myself. As the week progressed, I realized the significance of the sweet, soft voice telling me to let go…

All week, I felt tired… I couldn’t focus on my meal plan… I even missed a workout!! My energy was literally draining from me and now I know why.

Over the course of the last two weeks, I have reflected NONSTOP on the negative events of the past. Mentally and physically I was ready to move on, however, emotionally I was obsessing over exploring all the obstacles affecting me from blossoming.  Turns out, at this present moment, I am the main obstacle contributing to my bondage…

It’s time to get out of your sadness and stand tall. You can’t change your past, and you can’t predict your future. Guess what you can do though…

ENJOY THE PRESENT MOMENT!!!

Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Quit forcing yourself to miss out because you don’t feel worthy. Smile… Laugh… Make lasting memories… Be happy!!

Breaking Free-Part 2

~Hey Hey!!! I pray this week made you think twice about the events of your past you constantly wish had never happened… EVERYTHING in your past is what makes you the beautiful person you are today! Ready to journey deeper into Breaking Free? Indulge and Enjoy!~

How did you do it? How did you convince my Mom that you were a good guy? How did you pull the wool over my Grandma’s eyes? How did my Aunts and Uncles think you were all about family? How did you persuade me you were a father figure?

They were too accepting… They got too comfortable… They were too wrapped up in whatever life was throwing at them. They couldn’t see the evil in you… They didn’t want to see it…

I was too insecure… I was too naive… I was too young… I was extremely damaged… But I knew something wasn’t right… I was just too desperate… Too desperate to feel the love of a Father… Too desperate to feel wanted unconditionally… Yet there were so many conditions…

You taught me the “L” word… No, not Love, Lust… You masked it by saying “I love you” though… You preyed on my youth… You twisted my thoughts to believe love meant access… Honestly, I still get the two confused from time to time… I mean, after all, teaching a 5th grader her body is the only asset she has can create muddy thoughts.

You built trust, with me, by portraying a Father figure. When my Mom said “No,” you said “Yes.” When I cried, you wiped my tears. When I was tired of wearing baggy clothes, you purchased me clothes that made me feel girly (really they just accentuated my body). I mean you brought me my first prepaid cell phone! Under one condition… “When I call, you better answer…

Baby Girl Baby GirlBaby Girl… My goodness, I hate being called that. I mean, it’s kind of sad because all I ever wanted was to be my Father’s baby girl. But, to this day, I cringe when anyone uses that phrase towards me.

Answer me this, why were you so obsessed with me? Grooming me was taking too long, huh? So, you found a girlfriend. Why did she have to have the same name as me (just spelled differently)? Why was she almost the same complexion as me? Why did you stare at me while talking to her? And, why did you call her baby girl?

Why were you so bold? It was almost as if the thrill of someone seeing what you were doing to me, made it more exciting for you. I can still remember the little things like how my seat in the car had to be next to you. Or, the time you pinned me against the wall, in the kitchen, and literally touched every part of my body while forcing me to kiss you. There was always someone around, just never close enough to save me.

How did I allow you to convince me to run away from home? I mean after all you had already done to me, why did I still trust you? Why did I think you had my best interest at heart? Why did I still think you could love me as a daughter?

But I did it… I packed my favorite outfits, called you (as planned) and waited for my “friend” to pick me up… only he never came. I remember you going on and on about how you should just buy bus tickets for us so that we’d be together… That’s when it clicked. You were never going to be the father I was searching for…

My plan was to make it through the night, talk to some of my friends, and see if their parents would let me stay with them. So, you offered to let me sleep in your room… Never did you mention you’d be in the bed too…

You stole my ability to trust… You stole my ability to love… For many years, you even stole my ability to desire my father’s presence in my life… You, Monster 3, planted a fear so deeply rooted in me, I’m afraid I’ll never fully break free…

Thank you…

I know several readers are confused, maybe even frustrated that I say “thank you” at the end of this post. (Shoulder Shrug) I can’t change how you feel. What I can say is remember what I said at the beginning of this post…

EVERYTHING in your past is what makes you the BEAUTIFUL person you are today!

So yes, I thanked him. I thanked him because day by day, I am becoming more and more in love with the BEAUTIFUL WOMAN that is me. I thanked him because this chapter of my life is still teaching me how to FIGHT. I thanked him because his cowardly, perverted acts played a part in creating the STRONG MINDED person you all are getting to know and love. But, most importantly, if this post ever finds it’s way to him, I need him to read it and know his devilish actions didn’t steal my JOY!

Though the events are unfortunate, they happen. Not only did they happen, but they also made me STRONGER!

Love Y’all.

Breaking Free- Part 1

~What’s up Beautiful Family!! I pray this week was a struggle… I pray you felt pressure. No, this isn’t me being mean, pressure is how diamonds are made! The next couple of weeks are going to be slightly different from previous posts, however, it’s much needed and I’m sure you’ll still be able to enjoy them! Are you ready to explore together? Me too! Let’s dive in. Indulge & Enjoy!!~

They told me you would protect me… you didn’t. They told me you would support me… you never have. They told me you would always love me… I’m confident, you hate me. The world painted you to be my hero, but a monster is all I see.

Sometimes I lie awake at night, wondering if you realize all you took from me… Did you actually know what you were doing? Were you aware that your actions would cause me to fear the unseen? You’ll never understand how it feels to fear love, REAL LOVE… Not the “what can you do for me” type of love you forced on me…

The darkness in you follows me daily… I struggle with my unknown destiny because I don’t feel worthy. I’ve never felt worthy… You are the mastermind that still controls my vulnerabilities. I hate that I’ve yet to experience fully loving myself. I hate that when I’m too low, it’s difficult to look in the mirror and face the little girl crying out to be rescued…

Sometimes, I get so frustrated when people tell me how mature I am for my age. They don’t know why I matured so quickly. I hate that my maturity is based on my life experiences and I hate that you’re one of my earliest life experiences…

What caused you to think of me as a sexual conquest instead of the little girl I was? You weren’t that much older than me, so what happen to you that caused you to use me? Use me… Wow… today’s the first day I actually accepted your actions as what they are…

YOU USED ME… I was your experiment… I was your project… I was your way of learning the female body… But I was only 5… FIVE!!! I never had a chance to show my innocence… I never had the opportunity to experience love without my body being the main attraction. But how can a 5-year-old be stripped of their innocence?

Who hurt you? What did they do? How many times did it happen? Were you forced to keep quiet too? Did they force themselves inside of you just to see “what it was like?” Did you beg for them to stop? Do you still think about it?

Does your soul plead with your heart to forgive them? Do you look in the mirror,at times, and see them standing behind you? In the shower, do you feel their hands all over you as you attempt, for the trillionth time, to scrub yourself clean? Are you afraid to sleep alone? I am.

Some nights, I can feel you lying right next to me. Watching me, making sure I keep “our little secrets…” Other nights, you’re not there when I fall asleep, but then, in the middle of the night, I feel you creating yet another secret for me to keep… As I squirm and whence to break free of your grip, I look around and there’s no one in the room but me…

You created a cycle in my life. You forced sex on me. You forced me into a world I knew nothing about… and then when you became tired or bored, you moved on with your life. I was so thankful you didn’t want me anymore…

I didn’t know someone had been watching you though. Studying every action. Being groomed into the monster they admired day and night. When you were done with me they had learned just enough to take your place…

Monsters number TWO, THREE, and FOUR were even worse to face…

I want you to know, I forgive you. Though it’s crazy, I have nothing but love in my heart for you. Despite all that you’ve done to me I want nothing but the best for you. I pray blessings over you and I pray you’re at peace with the choices you’ve made in life. Honestly, most of the time, I pray for your future children and wife…

Today you’ve lost control of me, I will no longer live in fear. I will no longer wonder why… And I will no longer shed these tears. I know I have a destiny, and the space in my mind you’re residing in, RENT FREE, is needed for me to grow. My past does not define me and neither do your actions…

I forgive you… I FORGIVE YOU! My FREEDOM depends on it. You’ve kept me bound for entirely too long.

STAY BLESSED…

Some of you won’t understand the importance of what transpired today, and for that, I feel sorry for you. Most of you will question me loving someone I “claim” hurt me so bad, and for you, I pray grace and forgiveness enter your life like never before. The rest of you will try to pinpoint who I’m talking about, and to you I ask why does it matter? I know you’ve all heard this before, but it’s definitely worth hearing again…

FORGIVENESS ISN’T ABOUT THE WRONG DOER… IT’S ABOUT YOU
