    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…

    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.

Eventually, the Lord freed me from caring about what people thought of me and their outlook of who I was. I…
