    How I truly Learned to Love Myself.

    Self-Love. Lets take a minute to think about that word. Self-Love. Lets take another minute to decide what it means. For me, Self-Love means accepting myself for my strengths and my weaknesses. It means trusting myself, protecting myself and most of all it means making myself happy and content. – FaithnTurtles Coming to this personal definition wasn’t easy. Loving yourself, like many other things in life is often easier said than done. I have been saying I love myself for many years but i didn’t fully know or appreciate that or what it meant until God made me appreciate it. When I decided to transform my pain into purpose is…

    How to Invest in your Emotional Healing

    Emotional Healing? What does Emotional healing mean to you? To me, emotional healing means overcoming or accepting a hurtful event to a point where my thoughts do not haunt me anymore. Now, emotional problems may come from a number of factors such as recent loss (of a job, opportunity, loved one), fear, feelings of unworthiness, stress, abuse, changes, health conditions and many other events. In order to heal emotionally I believe that we must invest in that healing. This means that we must do things for the healing to take place. There must be a way made and strategic actions taken in order to overcome. It is unrealistic to expect…

    How I benefited from a Blogging Break and Why you need One.

    You were made to rest regularly. Yes, I just said you were made to rest regularly. It may be hard to rest or take a break from blogging or just from activities, especially living in a fast pace world.

Bible Motivation: “Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.”  Exodus 34:21 KJV Rest is a Natural…

    Why I decided to love me by Nancy Fleuridor

    When my blogging friend @faithnturtles and I decided to write a blog on self- love my mind began to wonder. I started to think about the era when I was very insecure and the times I did not delight in my features like my legs, arms, shoulders and other aspects of my body. I grew up hearing questions like “Why are you so skinny?” a dozen hour in the day. If I had a dollar for every person that mentioned those words to me, I would be a millionaire. Eventually, the Lord freed me from caring about what people thought of me and their outlook of who I was. I…

    Reduce Stress by Getting a Coloring Book

    Many have thought of coloring only as an activity for children however research has shown that this activity can provide tremendous benefits for adults. Adults who suffer from anxiety or depression have much to gain from investing in a coloring book. Here is a story: I was out shopping for puzzles with hubby and I said I want to get a coloring book. He laughed and said really? I then said yeah it’ll be cool, I hear it’s therapeutic and stuff. The end result is we got one and it worked. Sometimes we color together and other times I colored alone. I’ve used it a few times and I am…
