Spring is here! Why is it so hard to let things (& people) that have no positive meaning in your life go. In March, I decided to stop living according to plans that others have for my life and stop being afraid of using my past experiences to Empower other women. I‘m thankful for my past because of it I am the woman you see today, but I refuse to allow my past hurt,sorrows and lows to drag into my present.Don’t live your life based on what other people think, NO MORE BAG LADY! Here’s a list of things you should toss out for good.
- Throw away anything that saddens you. Why hold on to belongings of your
ex best friend or boyfriendif it makes you cry each time you see it? Throw it out Girl, you will feel much better doing so.
- Delete all “Soul Vampires” out of your life. A “Soul Vampire” is someone who doesn’t add anything to your being. Most likely this person is only hang around because they benefit from your success and energy.After talking with this friend/family member/boyfriend you feel emotionally and physically drained because they are sucking the happiness out of you. *Inserts Tag from Frozen* Let them go Sis!
- Let go of your insecurities. Insecurities are attempts for the devil *
I refuse to capitalize his name because he’s a non-factor* to block you from your being the best friend,daughter,student or entrepreneur God wants you to be. Don’t allow that non-factor to block your blessings. I’ve always been told “You have the gift of Gab“ ( meaning I could talk to or persuade anyone) and in many ways God has blessed me with ways to use my communication skills. I have always had opportunities to speak to large groups ( especially young women) and I enjoy it but I have always been afraid that I wouldn’t have the right words or knowledge to give to these young ladies. Over time, I have learned to put my fears and insecurities away with trusting in God and allowing him to order my steps. Remember that God sees the best in you and that he would not lead you astray. You are worth it doll, you are pretty enough, you are smart enough, who cares that you don’t have big boobies and a juicy booty. Love yourself because there is no one like you.
- While you’re throwing out all of the other things discussed don’t forget right now is a great time to actually CLEAN YOUR HOUSE. Donate or sell items you don’t utilize anymore. Many shelters, Salvation Army’s and Goodwill’s accept clothes, shoes,household goods… they literally accept everything (Just make sure your things are in good condition, you wouldn’t want to give someone dirty or smelly junk).Places like Plato’s Closet allow you to sell your clothes to them in exchange for cash.
I look forward to sharing my experiences and tips from life here.
