It’s funny how we hang onto so many “things” in life. About four months after moving into my place I was still unpacking, and that was no surprise to me or anyone that knows me. One night I came across some documents that brought a painful memory to the forefront of my mind. After several tears, I began to think, if things can have this kind of impact on me what are the people in my life doing to me? Much like things in life we have a hard time letting people go. Often we hang onto people at the expense of our health and well-being. People that may be in our lives or those that have already left, we grasp onto the tangible and the intangible for fear of letting go, loss or facing the inevitable truth. I couldn’t help but think that had I not kept those things I would not have felt the sadness that overcame me when they resurfaced. It is okay to forget some things; it is okay to let go. There are points in our lives and people that come into our lives that help teach us and mold us into who we are today. But that is all they are meant for; they are not meant to be carried on into our future. Letting go allows us to begin again. I had to ask myself, how many “things” am I carrying? How many grudges, exes, and regrets are keeping me from moving on? It was a tough realization that needed to be dealt with to free my mind and life of toxicities that were burdening me. Imagine the sense of freedom and free space in our minds if only we learn to let go.

“Intuition is a spiritual faculty, and does not explain, but simply points the way.” -Florence Scovel Shinn I love when my devotionals all say essentially the same thing. I know it means I need to hear what they are trying to tell me. Today I read about intuition and having faith when you are faced only with fear. We… Read more →
Today started like many other days. Pretty normal, pretty routine. I try to make time every morning to read my devotions. This morning it seemed each of my devotions were teaching me similar things. Meditate in you and your worth, have a positive outlook and attitude, and lead a holy life. Three separate devotions, three different writers, one similar lesson. … Read more →
I have found there are two things imperative to my spiritual life I cannot fulfill God’s purpose without them, self-love and good habits. It is important to love others as we love Christ. It is more important to love ourselves as we love Christ. For if we do not love ourselves we are incapable of loving others. “The second is… Read more →
