No difficulty can discourage, no obstacle dismay, no trouble dishearten the man who has acquired the art of being alive. Difficulties are but dares of fate, obstacles but hurdles to try his skill, troubles but bitter tonics to give him strength; and he rises higher and looms greater after each encounter with adversity.
Feeling pretty happy like my littlest cutie, because I’ve snacked on some M&Ms today and haven’t had any issues! So yay chocolate!! 😂
I’m dealing with some endometriosis associated GI distress, and so far the only things I can put in my body without painfully blowing up like a balloon are eggs and M&Ms (very small handful at a time). I’ve eaten a lot of hard boiled eggs today 🤣
I’ve been wrapping my head around a gold mine of dietary info at healendo.com (@heal.endo) and the GAPS diet. And these very first baby steps into it all are proving effective. I’m not sure how long I can survive on just eggs 😅 but at least they stick with me and I know I can at least get through a few days until I can venture to the grocery store. The M&Ms were a little reward (and test) for making it through the day, and so I could keep reminding myself with just a few little pieces that this isn’t forever and that my body isn’t broken.
I am a 27 year old adult woman that has a stuffed animal cat. I have named this inanimate object Lemon because I have Lyme disease. 🍋🍈
I received this cat as a gift to help comfort me when I'm sick and not feeling good, which is most of the time. For realz....i use this fake cat. Lemon is so comforting. .
Tomorrow morning I go in for a 3-4 hour diagnostic test that will give a comprehensive diagnosis of what organs the Lyme has affected. I'm scared, but also excited and ready for answers. Answers lead to treatment. Treatment leads to feeling better and living my life to the fullest.
So I ask, how crazy would I come off if I bring a stuffed cat into the doctors office with me tomorrow to comfort me during this test?? 🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😸😸🙀🙀
So, I have an announcement that I think most of you will be excited about.
I've decided to set down The Last Left Alive for a short period of time, and instead, write a short novel, one that consists of 200-250 pages.
I've made this decision for a few reasons.
Considering The Last Left Alive will likely be a 650-700 page novel, that puts the timeline for its release a considerable ways away, and I think it's time you all were given a piece of my written works. Your patience should be rewarded.
The content of this new story I'll be writing will be lighter on plot, and instead, to be focused heavily on the emotional and mental state of a sole character. This grants me an unique opportunity to explore more serious themes on a deeper and more intimate level.
The anatomy of this novel lives and breathes through its personality, one of self discovery, acceptance, forgiveness, and amity. It is a story of depression, hopelessness, agony, and faith. Displaying the ugliest canvas, as to paint the most beautiful portrait.
More than all of this, this story is about fear. What fear is capable of when we give it the power to weild. The destruction of its reign when we bow to it. Our devotion to it, our submission to it, treating fear as of it were a god.
We allow fear to shape our lives, enslave us to the false idea of what is possible, and who we are. Fear pushes away love, it corrupts our faith, both in ourselves and others.
This novel, is about breaking the chains of fear. It's about finding the freedom in honesty, in exposing our deepest wounds, so they can be truly healed. Fear forces us to run when we should fight, when we should watch, for what we love, for the beautiful and rare.
I love you all and I thank you for all the support you've shown me. I pray I can deliver an experience with the power to touch and move you.
The Marvel - Coming Soon

Ever wonder why we still see the dead body of Jesus on our crucifixes when He’s already risen from the dead?
Simple: To remind us of how much we are loved, and how we are called to love! ❤️ “God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” (1 John 4:16)
Tout est possible à celui qui croit! Peu importe où Dieu t’a promis de t’amener, sois en paix sachant que ton Dieu n’est pas homme pour mentir et qu’Il tient toutes ses promesses sans exception 🙏 Tag un(e) ami(e) ♥️
Quand j’en parle certains n’y croient pas mais 2009 fut une année décisive pour moi...celle où j’ai décidé de participer à « Miss Guadeloupe ». J’ai donc consacré fin 2009 à début 2010 à mon objectif, celui d’avoir une silhouette de « MISS »...
et pour avoir les critères et remporter le titre il fallait absolument faire quelque chose....💪🏾
Thoughts from Day 14 of 2019: I've been proposed to one...two...three...FOUR times in my life. Ladies, just because they ask, doesn't mean you have to say yes. Take your time. Study their habits. Let them meet your family and your Pastor. Pray to God about them. Also, Saints, Ministers, Teachers, Preachers of God: Relationships and marriages for us are HARD. Lol. If you are married or still on the market, I'd like to provide one piece of advice: Please make sure that your love interest is more in love with YOU than your gift and anointing. Trust me. There are so many people who fall in love with your gift without taking the time to figure out if they love everything that comes with you.
I've failed many times in the relationship department because a man didn't properly weigh the cost of being with me. The cost is high.
And most people can't pay it. And that's okay. I'm able to handle all of the blood, sweat, tears, trials that comes with my anointing...but that's because it's MY life. I'm fully devoted to Christ and my calling in this world. And I need to be with someone who will love me like Christ and lay down their lives for me in every way.
My life isn't as easy as it looks. Quite the opposite. It's not easy being me...I pray the same for you. Before they approach you, let them know that they need to be in prayer with God about you. The more you know God, the more you'll know the difference. 👑 #GodIsLove#Faith#Hope#Love#LoveHappy#LoveYourself#Womanhood#GrownWomanhood#BiblicalWomanhood#VirtuousWoman#Proverbs31Woman#BlackGirlMagic#WomenWhoRock#BetterWithTime#Beauty#TrueBeauty#BlackSisterhood#Love#Mercy#Justice#PoeticJustice#Writers#Artists#Creatives#Poets#StoryTellers
I survived the longest, hardest month of my entire life and I’m just now beginning to feel like myself again. I feel like I’ve seriously aged beyond my years in a matter of a few weeks, but I also feel stronger, more confident, and have a deeper bond with my Elohim. Growth can be painful, but I’m so thankful for the improvements. #survivor#brokenbutbeautiful#faith#hope#heal
Never allow yourself to be someone's option, half time, spare time, downtime or sometime. Back up plan or a second choice. Got it, right.. 😁
Don't waste your time.
Trust actions not words.
If they treat you like a joke you should leave them like it's funny.
