College Budgeting: Everything You Need To Know About Money

“Manage your spending by creating and sticking to a budget.” – Alexa Von Tobel

Hello everyone. Welcome to another blog post. Today’s post is all about the Benjamins. How to be smart about it most especially college students. It is of no surprise that college students wants to enjoy their glory days. A lot of students find themselves broke trying to stay on top of expenses such as books, organizations, tuition, housing/living arrangements, and of course having fun. A whole lot of things to deal with in college huh? Nonetheless college is the best and most interesting time of our life’s. So whether you are broke or rich on a budget, it is important for every college student to know of ways to become financially smart at a young age. Here is what to do

  • Know Your Budget Status: Setting a realistic budget is the best way to see what you can and cannot afford. Your groceries, concert tickets, personal needs etc; all needs planning ahead of time which in return will create discipline and organization. Monitoring your budget plan and sticking to it can be difficult sometimes but getting  apps to help you is essential. Try these apps Spendbook, Wally, Mint, Good budget, and Level Money.
  • Rent Your Textbooks: Can we all agree that textbooks are EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE? To save money, rent your books so that way you are paying less. Also I’ll suggest you sell your last semester books since some course books are only used once, so you can use that money towards another book.
  • Take Advantage Of FAFSA: Most college students are familiar with FAFSA. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. There is no shame in depending on FAFSA for financial support. You will be doing a good deed to your pocket. Just use your granted money wisely.
  • Determine Your Needs/Wants: Most of our troubles comes from buying things we do not need right now but want. Fortunately for us, most of our phones comes with notes. Create a list that you have close to you and note down things you need from things you want. When you are out, check your list before purchasing an item.This way you can save yourself from unnecessary expenditure.
  • Be Cautious With Credit Cards: Do not be fooled by the easy spending access with credit card – you will have to pay back with interest. Then you end up paying more than what you actually spent at the moment. It is important to know the difference between credit building and overextending.
  • Chill Out On Eating Out: We all enjoy a good steak. The option of eating out can be extremely tempting, now that we have all these delivery services. No matter where you are your food will be delivered to you and you wouldn’t have to cook. Try eating at least once a month and stock up on grocery items that can last (Eg; cereal, ramen noodles). Get a microwave if you can and google meals you can make in a microwave.Also avoid grocery shopping while you are hungry. You will be surprised of the items you end up with in your dorm.

I do hope these tips is helpful. Lest I forget, acquiring a bus pass with your student ID can save you money too. If there are any tips you know off, do comment below. Also do not forget to share with your friends and family. Check my Instagram Dela. Till we meet again on another blog post, take care.

Best Baby Feeding Bottles

“Breast or bottle, as long as you are feeding your baby with love”

Hello! I believe you all are doing well. I just want to say thank you guys for reading my blog posts. I really do appreciate it. I also hope that my post is helping you or a friend one way or the other.

When looking into buying of baby bottles, your ideal worry is to find one that does not cause SPIT UPS, GAS, STOMACH UPSET, and COLIC. A baby bottle that is free from any CHEMICAL that is HARMFUL to the BODY, EASY TO CLEAN , and EASY TO LATCH on. These bottles are also good for transitioning your baby from breastfeeding to bottle feeding, As much as having your baby on the breast helps with more milk production, expressing your milk and storing for your husband, caretaker, or anybody that comes around your baby the chance to feed or create a bonding time is necessary.  Just so you can return to work if you have to, with the relief that your child can survive, get chores done, or simply take a break to rest. My son, unlike his sister is the only one to use more than one baby bottle and is fine with all of it. So these bottles I am listing to you have been TRIED & TESTED. Here are the best of baby bottles;

  • Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle: This bottle nipple is wide breast-shaped, making it easier for the baby to take it in like the mums breast. It is BPA Free. Easy to clean and comes in 9oz. Which means baby can use it for a long time. It prevent discomfort by moving air from baby’s tummy. It is also safe in diaper bags because there is no leakage.
  • Comotomo Baby Bottle: I’m so in love with this bottle. It feels so squishy like baby’s cheeks😌. It is made out of silicone hence the reason for its softness. My son found it easier to hold his bottle with it. It literally feels like your breast when you touch it. It also has a wide breast-shaped. I will advise that when buying, you get the 8oz ($23.99) for two packs instead of the 5oz($22.99) for two packs and it comes in two colors; GREEN & PINK. The only BUT that I have about this bottle is the cap/cover/lid. It can be annoying sometimes when opening it in a hurry. It does not come with lots of parts, making it easier to clean. I wish, the manufacturer will eventually make disc covers that can make it easier for you to make baby formula in there.
  • Nuk Simply Natural Baby Bottle: $6.99 for 5oz. This bottle comes in 5oz-9oz. I got the 5oz simply because my baby does not eat more than 5oz when he wakes up at night to eat. It was also easier to clean and the bottle looked cute. I love the shape of the nipple. Although it is not as wide necked like the others mentioned above, the nipple is shaped to help correct tongue positioning. It works much better for my son during night feeding because he does not have to work his jaws and tongue very hard to get a successful feeding session. I also do not have to worry about spit ups. I will recommend it if you are looking forward to bottle feeding exclusively.
  • Olababy GentleBottle: Another favorite of mine. This bottle was suggested to me because of my interest with the Comotomo baby bottle. It is just like the Comotomo, but its base is much thicker. It has a wide breast-shaped nipple making it easy for baby to latch on, easy to clean, prevents gas, spit ups and stomach upset. It comes with other accessories that comes in handy and your baby can use for a long time. Like the 4-Pack Travel + Storage $8.99, which makes it easy to prepare baby formula and keep baby snacks in the bottle. Also the Teether Handle $6.99, which turns the bottle into a sippy cup. How cool? They have the whole package! A single bottle is $14.99; 2 pack is $29.99 and comes in colors FROST, MINT & CORAL. And just like the Comotomo there is a smaller size but getting the 2 pack is a better idea.
  • Dr. Browns Baby Bottle: 8oz three bottle pack for $17.99. I am writing about this lastly because this is the only bottle my son rejected. As mentioned earlier, his sister solely used this bottle through her baby stage till she switched to sippy cups. She will not take any other bottle. I loved using this bottle for my girl because it prevented her from swallowing gas, and stomach upset. This bottle has so many parts to clean and honestly I do not miss washing all that. One bottle has 6 parts and my girl went through about 5-6 bottles in a day so you can imagine. Wheew! Nonetheless it is a great bottle. I am just being lazy from all the cleaning.

Buying baby bottle is one rollercoaster of it own. You have to keep trying to find the ONE for your child. As mentioned I have tried and tested these bottles and it works for my boy. Nonetheless every baby is different and will simply reject some of these bottles. So keep your receipt in hand so you can do the necessary returns before it is too late. I hope today’s blog was helpful to any mom, expecting mum, or dads. Please do Like, Share, Comment, and Follow my blog. Till we meet on another blog post, do take care and be safe.

“Your skin is 90% your selfie”

Hello wonderful people, welcome to another blog post. I am hoping you all are doing well and applying sunscreen to avoid the crucial heat or staying warm with a jacket depending on which of the globe you are in.

Today’s blog post is quite a simple one. Sharing with you guys some of my favorite drugstore and high end moisturizers and night creams. if you follow me on Instagram, Dela  you’ll realize that I do share skincare products I am currently using or have used. I have tried each of these and I am hoping that when you do purchase any of them, it does good to your skin as it did to mine.Also some of these products comes in minis just in case you want to see how good it is before buying full size. I have combination skin. Before purchasing a skincare product, look out for your major concerns and solutions for them.

  • Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask: I got this mainly because of fine lines and wrinkles. I am not getting any younger and this product did such good job working on my smile lines. It reduced the and smoothened the lines , making it more easier for me to laugh and smile without bothered about my makeup getting into my smile line.It honestly act as a corset. You feel your face snatched. I mostly use it when I have a big event the next day.
  • Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer: This is lightweight. You can use it as a night cream or moisturizer. Doesn’t feel tacky when you apply it and it leave you looking fresh and gives you an extra glow. Works great under makeup too.
  • Farsali Rose Gold Elixir: I really do love this product. I was skeptical on buying it but I saw so many Insta makeup video content creators using it a lot so I decided why not give it a try. I use it a sealant to lock in all that I’ve applied to my face before bed. It also does give you that extra glow thanks to the gold flakes. It has a funny smell though.
  • E.L.F Nourishing Night Cream: I love that fact that it has Shea butter, Aloe & Jojoba. Very lightweight and it is quickly absorbed by the skin. You don’t have to worry about it getting on your lips because it is safe. E.L.F Daily Hydration Face Moisturizer works just as the nourishing cream.
  • Saranghae Firm & Lift Cream: Been using this product for a year now. Smells heavenly and does a wonderful job by keeping your skin feeling fresh and snatched. Gives you a radiant glow in the morning. I apply it at night so when I wake up, I look refreshed.

I am always on the lookout to try something new. Thanks for reading today’s blog post. Like, comment and share. Till we meet on another blog post. Be safe .

Simple Ways To Help Father’s Bond With Baby

“Dad a son’s first hero; a daughter’s first love.” – Unknown

There is also a saying it takes two to tango. It took you two to create this beautiful, precious bundle of joy. To some father’s, bonding begins as soon as they hear the first heartbeat – just as you (mom). They rub your belly and talk to the baby just as you do. To others, it can take the arrival of the baby for bonding to begin and to others longer. Interesting enough many father’s do not share this part of their parenting journey. I wonder why? But many father’s take on the role of caring after the birth of the baby so their spouse can recover from delivery. If all he he does it empty the diaper pail, or do the laundry when you are breastfeeding; that can prolong his bonding time with the baby. So this is what I will suggest,

  • Get A Carrier/Sling: All babies love to be held or carried. They feel much more comfortable in your arms than the crib or bassinet. YOU can’t blame them for being in an enclose space (womb) all this while and that is why they feel attached to you. It is not realistic to carry your baby all day. You will like to use your hands for other things. A carrier/sling is your best buddy at this stage. It allows you to carry your baby whiles keeping your hands free to do other things around the house. Having dad wear a sling will be helpful. That way he can take the baby for evening strolls or around the house to help with their bonding time. It also provides you the mom some “me time”. You can catch on nap!
  • Bath-Time: Dad has been at work all day – literally. I usually ask my hubby when he is half way home so I can prep bath time essentials for him. Evening bath is a favorite of his. He has always enjoyed it with our first born and now with Eazy. This moment gives him and Eazy the chance to have fun and play whiles attend to my oldest daughter. Since this is part of our bedtime routine, eventually Eazy will most of the time need his dad to have that moment with before bedtime. Also when I do go put Eazy to sleep, my hubby gets our daughter ready for bed and reads her bedtime story most of the time. It has become a tradition between he and the kids. Such an unbreakable bond.
  • Get Him Involved: I honestly do not know how to stress this enough. This is something you need to do from the on set. Not when your baby is a month or two before you do this because at the stage your baby is in, your baby has come to prefer you more than anybody. You do not have to stop breast-feeding to make dad have a bonding time with baby. Express the milk, so dad can take over a certain time in the day to feed. But if you do not want to pump, then you can ask dad to change diapers. As the baby lays on the changing table, dad and baby will interact leading them to have their bonding moment.
  • Special Moment: It is a natural thing for us to want to be involved in something fun someone is doing. If dad and baby are engaging in activity, leave them alone to have their bonding time. I know it can be tempting toes them giggling and you want to join in the fun. Let them be because you have been with baby and this is his moment to bond with his baby too.
  • Think Before You Speak: We women were created or made for this – motherhood. It is unnatural for dads. So if dad wore the baby diaper a wrong way or wore the baby’s bodysuit inside out or wore the baby different color of clothes from what you thought he would have put on the baby; It is okay. Think well before criticizing him. Some men will avoid diaper changing, or dressing up baby to avoid you pin pointing little little things. And that will make your load at home more. Also as the child grows, their needs increases it. Remember you will eventually have another child, if you want to. So having dad have these moment with the child will be so helpful in the long run. For instance in a week, my daughter will need my assistance probably 2-3x. There are times I’m like “wow she really is daddy’s girl”. I am thankful for it because how will I juggle a 3yr old and a baby whiles I have a husband at home?
  • Make Time For Him: I kept this for last because this is something we all as mums tend to do. Using the baby as an excuse most of the time lol. But remember before there was a baby, there was JUST YOU TWO. It is normal to be both tired and not have quality time as before but try to make time for him. When the baby goes down for a nap, text him and ask how his day is gong so far. Ask if he has had lunch and if you can surprise with lunch at work if you can. Ask him how he is feeling, you will be surprised of the things men finds it hard to bring out during this new stage because they do not want to overwhelm you the more but he is human and needs to be heard. Show him that you care. Moreover do not forget to tell him of how good of a father he is.

I hope this is helpful to any parent or mom-to-be out there. Help you spouse out. Do not make your spouse feel left out. It is both you your baby. Have him involved in everything. Even for checkups ask him if he wants to come if he can ask permission from work. If you will have to label babies food for him to know what he is feeding the baby at the moment, do it. Do not think, there is no need to have him him involved. As I said , you will be surprised of the things your spouse will share with you upon babies arrivals, if you both sit and talk of the changes and how to work on them. On that note, share with us by commenting on ways your spouse bond with baby. Till we meet on another blog post do take care guys.

 

Negative Impact Of Social Media On Body Image & Relationships’

“Social media has created jealous behavior over illusions. Sadly some are envious of things, relationships & lifestyles that do not even exist.”

I recently conducted this poll “Do you ever feel like getting of the gram?” on my Instagram Dela. And 75% said yes and gave reason as to why. What I got from their response was the PRESSURE. I use to think peer pressure only existed in our teenage years but no it still lingers around regardless of your age. If you spend even just half of 30 minutes scrolling through your instagram feed, you could be unintentionally damaging your body image or relationship.

Influencers are meant to get us to try something – beauty, skin care, diet, workout etc. “Bad influence” is when you are constantly spending time looking at fitness influencers and models on instagram and that can have a negative influence on your self-esteem. You are more likely to be unhappy with your own body. It can also predict other mental health such as disordered eating and depression. It is okay to derive “fitspo” from an influencer because you want to stay in shape or lose weight. But if you are looking for looking sake and you are not doing anything about it please avoid it.

Should we delete our IG accounts? And that takes me back to the poll I conducted. This was some of my followers response and with their consent I share a text from their response.

“All these people sharing negative stuff and fake bodies”

“I need a break most times from social media when I catch myself wishing I looked like this and that….”

  • BODY IMAGE: I remember after having my first child, I felt I had to snap back ASAP because that was what I was constantly seeing. It has somewhat become a NORM. I had a negative influence on my own body. A body that was a space to nurture a healthy human till the time is right for he/she to come into this world. So instead of me being more appreciative of having a healthy baby, I was trying to snap back to please some folks I do not even know. Some of your favorite websites has only women with COCA – COLA bottled shape. Making it harder for you to even shop for clothes anymore. I once saw on my twitter feed a tweet from a woman and I paraphrase “Well shaped women are the only ones who are able to keep men”… Yes! you read that right. Meanwhile someone might be going through something in their relationship – could be quick to get upset or has a plain bad attitude. But because she saw this tweet and she is probably as small as me, she might feel the PRESSURE to go loan money or wipe her savings just to get implants cos apparently that is what can save her relationship. My dear sisters please do not let this be you. Instagram has become the worst app for your mental health. Most especially in relation to body image. So please love the skin and body you are in. If you feel the need to stay in shape or lose wight, do it for you and for your health and that is real BODY GOALS.
  • RELATIONSHIP GOALS:  Not all that glitters is diamond. I do hope that in the back of your mind, you remember that what you see on social media is the happy space people are in. No one will post a picture or video of their painful moment. But because you see their lifestyle, you assume they are laying in a bed of roses. Well, you do not get a perfect rose without coming into contact with a thorn. I have come across numerous post that makes me wish and hope that my sisters will not blindly follow what this person is saying. Once someone said “If he takes you to McDonald’s for dinner, that ain’t the one sis.” REALLY!!? My dear sisters, you know your man better. Appreciate what you have and please TRY not to compare. If he RESPECTS YOU, LOVES YOU, COMMUNICATE, TALK ABOUT HIS PLANS WITH YOU FIRST, PRAYS WITH YOU & PROTECTS YOU; Who cares where you guys go for dinner? Would you rather have a man who will take you to fancy places then as soon you guys sat in the car to go home he hits you or abuses you emotionally, physically and mentally, or a man who gives you all that he has with the above mentioned in caps Do not do things to post for LIKES. 

Also, you get to choose who to follow. Your feed affects your mental health and self-esteem. Follow accounts that brings smile on your face and makes you  feel content about life and unfollow accounts that always gets you questioning if your boobs needs some lifting, nose job, butt worked on or if your man  or woman is competent ENOUGH. Follow some new people who promote body-positivity and those who keep it real with relationship talks. Another cool thin is you can block certain hashtags too.


I hope this “short” blog post in some way makes you show appreciation to your skin tone, curves, lips – your BODY, life and relationships. If you also have any advise to anyone feeling this negative influence from social media and how you curb such effect, please comment below. Till we meet on another blog post, do take care.

Things You Should Stop Worry About As A New Parent

“My favorite piece of advice for a new parent is there is no one right way to do something. Trust your instincts. If we all spent a less time judging others and ourselves, imagine how much more time we’d have to simply enjoy what is really important – our families.” – Baby Loving Mama

It’s been a while I blogged about anything baby and parents related. I figured why not have a little pep talk with my online moms, dads and parents with my little two cents. I’m a mother of two. My first three and second four months. Being a new parent is exciting. But to be honest, being a first time parent can be scary. You want to do everything right to keep your beautiful bundle of joy protected, healthy and happy. So it is natural to worry if you are doing everything right. There are some things you can probably stop worrying about.

  • What Other People Think: Raise your hand if you would have a couple of hundred thousands dollars in your account by now if you’ve been bombarded with when and how to do things as a parent? I guess that is us all lol. Everyone has an opinion about when to potty train, wean your baby off the boobs or Binky, put your baby on a schedule, when to return to work or stay at home. It’s okay to take advise but weigh it out and study your baby. If an opinion isn’t related to your child’s health, why stress over it? What really matters is what you and your spouse think. You cannot please everyone. Trust your instincts and do what is best for you and your family.
  • Doing Everything Perfectly: You probably know of a parent who makes all his or her baby’s food, knits outfits or even can do both and always look put together. That is not a rule it is an exception. As parents there will be good days and some days you will wonder if you are doing things right? You honestly do not have to do everything right to be a perfect mom, dad or parents. We learn through imperfections.
  • The Little Things: There will be days where you’ll eat junk food, laundry is piled up, sink is full of dishes and the house may not be tidy like it used to be when it was just you two. I cleaned my house, got laundry done and ironed the clothes by the end of the week. After my second baby, boy oh boy! My sink gets full quickly, laundry keeps piling, and the energy to cook sometimes isn’t there so I end up eating out, wait a week more to do laundry, then wash dishes before bed. Unlike washing them right after we are done eating. It is not worth it to stress about the little things. Learning to chill little bit can prevent you from feeling overwhelmed and help you focus on what matters.
  • Reaching Baby Milestones On Schedule: There are so many baby books and apps stating when your baby should start cooing, following a finger, sit down, crawl, talk, teeth, roll over etc. But babies have their own timeline. I do not bother my babies at all. You do what you do when you can. If you feel tired you will sleep. I do not put my babies on any schedule. Study your baby and they’ll show you their cues. If certain things are out of the ordinary you should definitely consult your baby’s pediatrician.
  • The Future: It is normal for any parent to worry if they are financially stable enough to cater for their children or if their children will go to the best schools or they will be good to their community. Enjoy the present and stop stressing about the future. One day your baby will grow and will leave for college, introduce you to someone they want to spend the rest of their lives with. Do not be so busy thinking about wanting the future to be PERFECT so much that you will end up missing out or witnessing some milestones or creating family traditions.

My dear moms, dads and parents enjoy your cute beautiful bundle of joy. Once again do what is best for you and your baby. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog. Till we meet again on another blog post. Do take care friends.

Forgiveness

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” – Nelson Mandela

Hello there! Welcome to another blog post. As promised this is a follow-up to previous blog Beauty Marks. Forgiveness is a difficult thing to do. No lie, it is HARD. We all have a past, and for some it may be memorable and for others it may be horrible. Whatever the past look like, it is easy for us to indulge in the past and habour the pain in that moment. Find a way to minimize it, forgetting it lingers and is eating us up like a worm in an apple, causing it to rot. The way we use our memory will determine the detriment.

Forgiveness is a decision. Forgiveness is also a process. . You have to remind yourself to stay focused and committed to the process and you will get there. If you are going to build a new healthy friendships and relationships and marriage; you have to finish the unfinished business of old relationships. If you need to forgive someone, pray and ask God to help you forgive them. It is not easy. Once again it is a process. Healing is a step in the right direction to your beauty marks.

Forgiveness doesn’t mean that the person who hurt you “gets off the hook.” As the late Nelson Mandela said “……. I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” You do not want them to win or have power of you. You will end up constantly think about them whiles you can be using that time and energy into building your goals. Forgiveness also doesnt mean full reconciliation of a relationship. When trust has been broken, it must be rebuilt. However forgiveness means that as far as it depends on you, you are at PEACE with everyone.


Forgiveness is completely your choice. Ask yourself “Do I want to have inner peace and joy? or forever live with bitterness which can destroy any and everything that comes my way.? Till we meet again on another blog post. Do Take care. Also do not forget to check my IG Dela. I’ve highlighted a number of insta story post under LOVE just in case you need inspiration, healing or motivation.

Beauty Marks: Finding Healing In Your Scars

“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength and move on.” – Henry Rollins

Hello guys. Welcome to another blog post. If you are new to my blog, welcome and hopefully you enjoy my content.

Today I want to talk about the different scars we have, identifying them and finding ways to recover from it. We all have scars – physically, mentally and emotionally. I have a scar. It runs from my left lower abdomen to my right. It is my permanent map marking the shortest distance. My scar is evidence of a situation that forever changed my life. If you read my blog post Miracle, you will understand. I probably should have surgery to have it fixed so I look more hot in a two piece swimwear. Scars are evidence or reminders of wounds we have endured. The scar no one else sees is on your mind, heart and soul. Mine paved the way for me to have and enjoy the greatest love – motherhood.

You may be living with internal scars. Maybe

  • A betrayal from a friend.
  • Something a father said or did not do.
  • Something unspeakable.
  • A dream crushed by a boss, coach, or spiritual leader you admired.
  • A promise your spouse did not keep.
  • Something unexpected.
  • A misunderstanding among business partners or neighbors.
  • Something unthinkable.

Whether it happened yesterday, today or twenty years ago, it still hurts. You will rather not visit the source of that hurt, yet it left a mark that is difficult to erase. It keeps reminding you are no longer whole. It causes memories to resurface when you least expect it. Memories you will rather forget. Most at time we think scars are not ugly. That is why we hide them minimize the thought. But no amount of vaseline, aloe vera, aquaphor, or mederma cream can make it fade away. Beauty marks are wounds that have been changed into purpose. Your wounds/scars can bless the world. How?

The first step in any healing process is identifying what hurts and why? If you are to be healed, you have to get to the root of what is wrong. Pain is the beginning of healing. Healing may not mean the pain will go right away at the snap of your fingers. When you heal from any scars/pain, you do not harbor resentment, hate, bitterness, acrimony, antipathy etc and that blesses the world because you still show love, care and kindness despite what you went through. You are still OPTIMISTIC. Yet we can be enticed to manage our pain by minimizing it. We convince ourselves that we can handle it. I am fine and things will go away eventually.

But if you are facing cheating in your marriage, you are likely to minimize your pain by convincing yourself that many marriages faces the same challenge. Uhm is your marriage or relationship like every other person? Our fingers are not equal so why accept what is wrong in your home or space? My dear friend, ignoring pain is not strength. It leads to greater injury. Like physical wounds, emotional wounds have symptoms. Symptoms you have to pay heed to. example,

  • You struggle to state your hurt.
  • Your thoughts bully you.
  • You avoid certain people and specific places.
  • You wound others.
  • You experience unresolved grief.
  • You have unhealthy attachment.

Take a moment to list down symptoms you have noticed and please consider what might have caused the wounds you carry today. Tell Jesus about your suffering and watch Him turn your wounds to a blessing to the world. You can tell a person you trust, such as a pastor, mentor, a close friend or a counselor. It is possible to be hurt even if others do not recognize your hurt. Deep down you know this. Just pause for a moment. In other for you to have beauty marks, to have someone look beyond what you have endured; you have to work on your road to recovery. Feel that inner peace and joy.


I will talk about forgiveness in the next blog post. We all can say we have healed. We are not minimizing our pain any longer. But you have to ask yourself HAVE YOU REALLY FORGIVEN & MOVED PAST IT? 1 thessalonians 5:23. I hope you enjoyed todays blog post. Till we meet again on another blog post. Take care
