Happy New Year Friends ! I’ve been looking forward to sharing this with you, and I can’t wait for us to get back to our little chats. 2020 was an interesting year. I had a lot of good moments, but it was also very challenging. I had to put a lot of effort in surviving.Continue reading “The Story You Tell Yourself”
I really want to start by reminding everyone how crazy 2020 has been but I think we all know. In the midst of what seems like chaos and a mystery, it’s so easy to lose ourselves in the events of our daily lives, the trial, the ups and downs, the failures, heartbreak, rejection etc… MoreContinue reading “You’re still all that (AND a bag of chips) !”
I have a question for you. What is one thing you’ve been working on? I don’t mean your business plan, I mean on yourself? I have been working on myself a lot, not really by choice, lol. Lately, I’ve been working and praying about my heart a lot because, when we make Jesus the standard,Continue reading “The Trap Of Expectations”
Welcome back ladies(and gents) ! I missed you ! I want to tackle a topic we are all too familiar with but don’t really like talking about. It’s uncomfortable. Because jealousy is such an ugly thing, nobody wants to admit that they’ve been jealous. Who wants to admit they’re a hater? Not me! It’s easierContinue reading “Jealousy”
Excuse my french, but who started this whole “Waiting On Boaz” BS? Ok, before I get ahead of myself, let me explain. I perfectly understand the concept of waiting, it applies to many areas of our Christian lives. I understand “waiting on Boaz” is more of an invitation to wait on who God has forContinue reading “What Exactly Are You Waiting For?”
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been full of ups and downs and unexpected events. For me personally, what we’re witnessing has added meaning to common statements we make, such as “tomorrow is not promised”, “God is control” or “it’s above me”. My word for 2020 was very simple, “execute”. Not plan,Continue reading “I HAVE A SECRET !”
Welcome back !!! Catch up on part I here. It’s very important for me to be honest with myself and acknowledge the consequences of my past hurt and trauma on my young adulthood. My prayer is that while you read about the impact these things had on my life, you will be able to identifyContinue reading “Part II: The Aftermath”
I was talking to my friend the other day and she asked me a simple question: Esther, what’s your story? I answered vaguely, as always, but I’ve been thinking about it since that day. I do have a story that I never shared with anyone, just bits and pieces I usually make jokes about, butContinue reading “WHO’S THAT GIRL?”
Two of my favorite people are taking over the blog today and I couldn’t be happier. They each gave me some valuable advice as their sister but also as a young woman in today’s world. Idriss, 25, the deep and funny (some people think he’s fine): Have your own experiences : don’t be afraid toContinue reading “What I Want My Sister To Know”
A word I’m too familiar with. Disappointment is defined as “sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations” and that has been a recurring theme in my life. I was always disappointed, by everyone and everything: myself, friends, jobs, siblings, men, parents, pastors, etc., and it left me feeling very lonelyContinue reading “Disappointment”
