Being Right vs Being Peace

I know alot of stuff. Alot of random stuff too. I am a life long learner. I never feel like I can have enough information, enough wisdom, enough knowledge. I seek it. I read about it. I listen to it. I want to know.

I also feel. I feel what is right. I feel what is acceptable. I tune into my intuition.

This can be a problem because it can be perceived as trying to know it all.

Plus...I'm strong in my convictions.

I used to always feel the need to voice my opinion, to stand on what I knew was right, and to make sure other's knew they were wrong. All that has brought was arguments, resentment, and bitterness.

So in this new chapter I have learned to surrender. That I don't always have to prove how right I am. Believing and standing in my convictions is enough. The truth, the right, always finds away of revealing itself. She's bold like that.

So today and every day I work to choose to give up my desire to be right so that I can embrace my need to have peace. 

In every area of my life.

  1. Wow you wrote this just for me! I never want to be seen as a know it all but hate to be thought of as not knowing (if that makes sense) I've just learned to let go of opinions over trivial things but always looking for more info and more research.

    1. Hi Candace! You're so right. Letting go of trivial things so we can stand for the more important things. It can be so hard though!

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…
