...and you'll know your wounds are healed when you can look back on your wounded self and feel: not anger, not sadness, not pity or pain; not regret not bitterness not guilt or shame; not brokeness, not hopelessness or any such things... ...and you'll KNOW your wounds are healed when you can look back on … Continue reading Healed.

Are we loving or are we lying?

How simple it would be If love were free But alas, It costs So much. We are desperate for love, because we do not know Love. We have an idea of what we think it is, but that idea rarely permeates our realities. To us, love is equated with "feelings" - if she/he makes me … Continue reading Are we loving or are we lying?

When life offers you lemons…

There's a lot to smile about in this world. Find it. Relish it. Don't let anybody take it away. The world is angry and wants you to be angry along with it....even though you might have all the reason in the world....don't. It's easy to be what everyone else is....be rare...be insane...be positive....be optimistic...be a … Continue reading When life offers you lemons…

If You Died in 24-Hours…#NoRegrets

To The Sista Who Feels She Ain’t Good Enough #BlackGirlMagic

Sista,  BELIEVE IN YOURSELF... YOUR TALENTS… YOUR SKILLS… STOP passing up opportunities because you’re afraid you’re not “good enough”. Those who get ahead get there because they refuse to allow anything - fear, lack of skills, lack of funds, lack of confidence, social lives, families, spouses, current jobs, anything - else hold them back. You can’t … Continue reading To The Sista Who Feels She Ain’t Good Enough #BlackGirlMagic

The Un-Perfect Walk with Christ (visit www.TristaDaniell.com for more content)

Is your walk with Christ perfect? If you’re anything like me probably not. Living in the world of flesh is difficult. Our flesh wars against the Spirit of God that dwells in those who have accepted Christ, encouraging us to indulge in our passions/desires over the better things of God. It can be easy to … Continue reading The Un-Perfect Walk with Christ (visit www.TristaDaniell.com for more content)

You’re too lazy to follow your dreams.

MY OWN DREAMS REQUIRED TOO MUCH EFFORT FOR ME TO INVEST, BUT I COULD INVEST FIFTEEN HOURS A DAY TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS?

What kind of sense did that make?

Each time I claimed I didn’t have time to focus on my own dream, as I expended extra energy on someone else’s dreams, I told myself my dreams weren’t worth my investment, and neither was I. That’s a pretty powerful message to have to overcome.
