Quotes & Theme Music

BREAKING NEWS: “Dance Party Fridays” & “Self-Love Saturdays” will be returning this coming week! I was told last night by a very amazing friend that I needed to end my little hiatus and get back to shaking my groove thang & my blogging format, and I agreed. I’m ready to get back on the horse and continue the ride. Juggling blogging, school, LIFE, motherhood & mental health shenanigans won’t be easy, but hey, that’s why I can blog about it all here, right? Right. So yes. Get ready, cause I’ve got some pretty cool songs lined up to dance to!

Until then, here’s a quote to inspire you & me to keep digging deep, shedding our tangles, owning our stories & SPEAKING OUT:

‎”I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.” – C.S. Lewis

 

And a video to help me keep my head up & sing as I continue to get over my break up. Co-parenting with an ex who you still haven’t gotten over is no easy feat, people. But I’m doing it. I’ve been taking the pain of it in stride this month…or rather in dancing 🙂 They say “time heals all wounds,” so here’s my theme song as October approaches…..

 

A Brief Manifesto

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself” – Harvey Fierstein.

Move from being a victim to a victor. Own your story and share it. Be authentic, live wholehearted. Do not allow your circumstances or pain from the past or present define you. Don’t let a mood disorder define who you are. Define yourself in truth, in God’s truth…come to know who He says you are and let that be the foundation upon which you build your identity, let it become the lens through which you see yourself. Your beautiful, worthy, and loved self.

I challenge you to read these words and whatever else comes to your heart in front of a mirror, looking yourself directly in the eye as you say each word. I did. Difficult but empowering to say the least….if you do it, feel free to share how you felt and the impact, if any this had on you.
