I decided to do a quote this week instead of a photo…

Everything will work out. Things will get better. You are important. You are worthy of great things. You are loveable. The time is now. This too shall pass. You can be who you really are. The best is yet to come. You are strong. You can do this.

-Doe Zantamata

I was roaming through Pinterest and found this quote, it has such a powerful meaning. Many of us tell ourselves some ugly things, that most of the time we end up believing.We let our past dictate our future, our pain define who we are. We find it so difficult to find ourselves because we are buried under a mask with many layers.

-Chronic illness sufferers have to go through life in pain all day long and still find the strength to smile and show love to the people around them.

-Women/Young girls have to make them self-pretty and good  enough for the other girls/women  so that they can fit in with the crowd.

-Men/Young men have to show off how much of a man they can be in order to be identified as a real man.

My point is it seems like everyone has to prove something to someone just to fit in and be noticed. Society has a meaning of what you should be and what you shouldn’t, causing the real you to hide and never show itself. The real you wants to show but society says no. It’s time to stomp on the opinions of others and realize you are your own person. Society doesn’t define you, your illness doesn’t define you, even the people closest to you. You are your own being let it shine for the world to see no matter what society says peel back the layer of masks and be yourself. There is no one else made just like you!

Have a blessed Tuesday 💜



If I Perish, I Perish.

I always pray before reading my bible and just flip it open anywhere and begin to read. Nothing happens by chance to me especially when it comes to the bible. So, there was Esther chapter 4:16 I began to read it and there I, was amazed and even more empowered by another woman in the bible. They called her Esther.

Esther risked her life to see the king. Am I any better than Esther? Here she is this young woman standing up for her people not letting fear control her. She laid her life on the line, that means everything she had didn’t have much value as much as her voice did. She was a courageous woman taking a stand for what she believed in. Not letting anyone back her out of it. She put forth her faith took a stand and went forth.

Are we truly taking a stand for what we believe in? Are we telling the world to pray for me I am going on a mission and if I happen to perish don’t worry I, am not afraid. Are we doing what God is telling us to do, or are we standing in the dark hoping for the King to spot us out in a crowd of billions; or are we standing on the front line spreading Gods message and completing out our mission God has assigned us. God is looking for an Esther; to lay everything aside and tell the world if I perish let me perish, but my King has a mission for me and I can no longer be afraid.

Are you taking a stand?

 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish

Esther 4:16
