She Arrives

Greetings Ladies: since we have been on Craving Connections with so many deep dive discussions to get us to a better place in relationships, I want to share with you an excerpt from “Sparking Her Own Flame” by Pierre Alex Jeanty.

“Mourn the loss.
Let the rivers escape through your eyes as they wash down the memories.
Sadness will come in, but do NOT let it drive you down a dark road again –where happiness becomes a sign you passed miles ago and have yet to see again.
Let the burnt bridges become PATHS that will NEVER be walked upon again.
Let the hurt become scabs you never disturbed.
Mourning is a phase we will go through as we exist, but it’s never meant to be a place where we leave our soul hanging for too long!”

How powerful is that right — as women we tend to hold on to things for way too long. We are mothers by nature (kid or no kids) we are giving by nature, the sensitive rib that was taken from the man. We are intricate, intimate, innovative and deep inner beings that handle things to the degree of our love and experience.

This new month has arrived and half the year of the RESET quarantine has passed.  I will urge. Take in these next six months with a vigor in your soul. With a newfound zeal and tenacity. Embrace the DREAMS again –the heart that HOPES! This is where you have arrived! In the now… In THIS moment.

Never let a past experience kill what you saw as REAL! Be the amazing person that you are and take this time to celebrate your own personal life and growth.

You are amazing dear sister.  Uniquely and authentically designed to be all that God created you to be! You love well, now we love right. We don’t allow the hard challenges of life to destroy us. THEY BUILD US LADIES!

Use your scars as weapons, not shakes!

Do not allow your strength to become your trap!

With Love,
