{Letters From Her} Dear Black You

Dear black you.

(yes, my light brights, paper bags and chocolate bars all alike)

  There has to come a point in your life when you say enough is enough. A time has to come when you say that I will take control of my life. You have to be brave enough to stand up against stagnation in your mind. I want you to recognize the value that your life possess. Understand the best love is self-love. But you won’t know self-love until you get to know the Creator.

 With so many issues being surfaced in today’s society it’s important that we have to be appreciative as to who we are and who we belong to.

I just want to let you know a little about yourself since we have seemed to forget…

 

Black man, you are a leader.

You are valued, respected, loved, admired, protecting, providing and cultivating. Thankyou for your boldness and the courageous moves. I support your dreams and will motivate your ambition. You are or will be a great father. You are a wonderful son, brother, cousin and friend. You don’t need to sag or wear your clothes 3 times too big. Thankyou for working on yourself to set us free from self-esteem slavery. Without you our tribe dies… so I thankyou for producing life.

 

Black woman, you are needed

.

You are respected. You are trusted and sought after. Your hands hold power to change this world. The land needs your support and strict rules. The children need your teachings and nurturing love. Enough with sink sitting booty pics and only focus to swing around the pole. Love on you so that you can love on those around you. Cook dinner, clean up and be a LADY. Watch what comes out of your mouth and don’t yell at men. Keep your hands to yourself and be slow to get angry. Wear more dresses, stop caking on makeup and walk with your head high.

 There is potential and purpose in YOU. I see it and will tell you EVERYTIME I feel the need to.

Stay confident & be easy,

          Her.

Don’t Dread Monday’s, MAXIMIZE them!

Dear Dreamers,

My today is my most favorite day of the week, it gives me the chance to either start over or catch up. Okay so listen, I won’t make this long, maybe, lol. I want to share with you some good information I’ve learned over the past few days. I’ve learned that so many people launch these amazing ideas and they never seem to make it far because the person with the amazing idea didn’t take the necessary steps to create a strong foundation to build his house on. So instead of ensuring the foundation is secure and strong enough to hold a 20,000 sq. ft. idea,  people build on unstable grounds and it causes their ideas to fail.

It reminds me of the story of the the 3 little pigs. Did you know this same story is in the bible? Matthew 7:25-29 read it, I was shocked too. Anyway, it all makes sense, we…

{Letters From Her} No Role Models

image

How do you expect to have a real conversation with someone that watches reality television?

Everything is fabricated and filtered so it seems.

No one wants to have a role model because they’re too concerned with being models.

With no one to follow after and learn from the only goal is to have a K behind the number of followers on Instagram. The question I ask now is… where are you leading these followers? To school? To the studio? To the pole? To church? To HELL??

 

No one loves themselves so they hide behind pounds of makeup, push up bras, waist shapers, spandex and drawn on eyebrows. Not to mention the FEET Of weave that covers way more than just their shoulders. Oh! Not one of those “Barbies”? Hmmm Okay!! I’m coming for yall natural divas too. You knowwwww…. The ones with pounds and pounds of product in their natural hair and full face of makeup. I’ve been told that makeup is to enhance your beauty.. some folks dun painted on a whole lie.

This RANT not to bash anyone or display my displeasure of reality television, makeup or eye brows… it’s to bring awareness to self-hate. Only someone who’s unhappy with themselves will attempt to be anyone else.

 

Baby girl… embrace yourself!!!

If you’re an A cup. Be happy. If your face is bumpy… wash it and stay away from pop/soda. If you have a few extra rolls go for a walk. Baby love, DO YOU.

My fellas, stop looking for validation from the ladies by the complements you receive on your Jordans, rims or Cartiers.

Quit flashing money for likes on Instagram.

Please be confident and get a grip of YOUR LIFE.

Understand that life doesn’t just happen. YOU have the ability to LIVE.   

Let’s turn off MTV and look at the man/woman in the mirror… the truth is in there.

Be Easy and True to YOU,
        

Her

Yep, it’s Friday!

Dear Dreamers, I am so happy you are reading this blog today! I really wanted to remind you of how fantastic you really are. With all your responsibilities through the week, you made it, with not a hair out of place. I know you thought Friday would never come, but it’s here and now you can take some time and focus on you! Life can be so overwhelming sometimes, I know, remember, I have 3 boys ages 3 years and younger, a husband and a full-time career. I know the headache, but one thing that helps me through the week is knowing that I am doing it, IN PURPOSE. I’m not dreading work, I LOVE WORK, now I may be dreading the dishes, but that’s a different story lol. Life wasn’t given to you to EXIST it was given so that you may LIVE and Live more Abundantly. It’s time to stop dreading your days and…

{Letters From Her} Breaking Out of Religion

Church hurt leaves the church HURT. Stop looking for God to appear in humans. Yes, He uses His children BUT they are NOT Him! Yes, you can have the anticipation of His love and mercy to be displayed from the church folk BUT how many people are in the church and not OF IT? YES, I went there!!!

LET’S BE REAL… ENOUGH WITH BEING RELIGIOUS!!!!!

 

So now all your hope and faith rests in the decision of fellow believers versus the ONE we ARE to believe IN.     

Sounds crazy right?    As crazy as it sounds, it happens EVERY single day!

 

Leaving the church because someone hurt their feelings or because someone didn’t acknowledge them. Folks don’t know how to receive the walk of their neighbor in the congregation. Being defensive of their emotions versus defending the faith. Quick to put on a lamp shade when placed in a dark area and even faster throwing shade when Godly correction is given.

If no one else tells you this let me go on record and say…

Your pastor is NOT God.

Your neighbor that sits next to you is NOT God.

The nurse, worship leader, First Lady, Deacon, server, usher nor is the greeter is God.

You dun held their words and opinions to such a standard that now you’re mad at God because YOU indirectly and unknowingly made these ”church folk” an idol. Now if it’s ONE thing we all know about God is that He is a VERY jealous God! He does NOT like when we put things above Him nor does He like when we place opinions of others over the facts that He provided. Stop holding them accountable for the growth of YOUR relationship with God.

“The church” can’t heal you!!!!! Stop using Sunday Service and fellowship as band-aids. The wound can ONLY be healed when it is exposed to what it cannot see… only feel (air). Allow God to be the only one you have the expectation of healing from. Let Him be the air. Do not depend on a hug from the greeter or a complement from the most virtuous woman in the church. THEY ARE NOTHING BUT HUMANS.

FULLY rely on Christ and watch as He grants you EVERYTHING you could possibly desire.

 

Go to church empty BUT with the expectation of being filled ONLY by God. You don’t need to be filled with processed revelations. Get to know God for YOURself.

 

   Be Easy and Remain Honest,
           Her

{Letters From Her} Strangers

How many of us remember or still live at home with mom and dad?

You do?? Okay great!

Well let’s take a little trip down memory lane. Do you recall the rule… don’t have anybody in my house without my permission? Or the fact that you had a curfew? Maybe yall had grandparents like I did that made you come on the porch when the street lights came on?

Ringing bells now?

If not what about what happens afterwards? After you decide that you’re gonna do what YOU want to do? You get punished. And it seems to be to the highest degree doesn’t it? Phone gets taken away. Television privileges are revoked and no allowance. Sounds like prison huh?

Well how do you think your parents felt when you disobeyed their demands and had strangers in their house? Seems like it didn’t matter how much you THOUGHT you knew your friends; mom’s just didn’t like him/her. And after that one good fight or one heated argument you peeped that he/she was exactly who your parents said they were.

Sounds a bit familiar huh? No?

So glad it does!!

Let’s take a look at from God’s point of view? Growing up we were always told that our bodies are a temple. That it’s God’s sanctuary. I like to look at as God’s house. How many times have we had uninvited guests in His home? How many times has He told us time and time again that “this” person is no good yet we continue to give them the key to every single door? We are violating His commands and demands with our selfish ambition and desire to have someone around. That “someone” is killing you while Jesus is trying to give you life.

Its time to do an inventory check!! Ask God AND LISTEN TO HIS VOICE as to who needs to be in your life. Freedom from soulties ONLY comes from obedience! Stop tying knots in what God is attempting to free you from. And stop having folks in His house after He told you no more company!!

 

Be Easy,
   Her
