Some Monday Motivation!
For most of my life, I did not realize how hard it would be to obtain some of the successes I hoped for. Having Complex PTSD made it very difficult not to think that unless it happened right away, I would never get what I desired. Learning new helpful patterns of thinking helped me understand that most things I wanted would take hard work and time-but both would be more than worth it!
I went on so many first dates before I met my husband that I practically gave up! I hated first dates, they were so awkward and uncomfortable yet each one brought me closer to my amazing hubby. 😊
When I wanted to go "get better" after my suicide attempt, I went inpatient and worked really hard every day, I went to therapy twice a week, I threw all the pills down the toilet. I went to meetings and started to pray again. All of the things in my life that I wanted took hard work. But...they also brought me closer to God and made me realize how strong I am and what I can do with God by my side.
Today, don't quit because something is difficult, the difficulty will ease and when it does, you will realize how amazing God and you are together! #motivation #motivationmonday #theemptiedheart #sexabusesurvivor #suicidesurvivor #itgetsbetter #hardwork #recovery #recoverytakestime #thirdstep #youcandoit #withgodallthingsarepossible #worthit #fearfullyandwonderfullymade #childofgod #miracles #miracleshappen

Oldie but goodie...... I felt like I needed to repost this for someone especially after all the hype of The Royal Wedding. I got a few DMs from some ladies who have been waiting and are having a hard time seeing 'good men' or waiting for their Prince. They've given up hope but all hope is not lost. There are plenty of good men out there...but that honestly doesn't matter to me because I'm waiting for MY Adam. I'm not trying to date all the good guys. I only want the one for me. #waitingpatiently #adam #goodmen
I see some women have been attacking @masechabandlovu
following heir utterance on heir radio show with regards to the case of abuse against u @BABESWODUMO.
Firstly, there is a lot of women who have been abused and killed without exposing their abuse in front of people who also decided to keep quiet and regret after.
Secondly, a lot of women are being cruelly abused but they don't want to come out and expose their abusers because they are so scared to loose life styles, the benefits or even get attacked and killed for telling their story.
Thirdly, Masechaba has done a great job and we praise her for that. She is a true reflection of practical sense of activism in fight against #WomenAbuse
and most of these women who are attacking her for a wonderful she has done, they are single and they are used to bullying their boyfriends.
MEAL PREPPP 🥗 probably the most adult habit I have ever formed. I make a point every Sunday to go grocery shopping and to meal prep lunches for my husband & I. I also set myself up with two easy-to-make dinners for the week. In this case, nothing beats the ease of boiling water and doing a little chopping 🥦🔪
The start of summer screams cookout to me, so I've been making pasta salad nonstop. This is tri-color rotini with broccoli 🥦, peppers, cucumber 🥒, tomato 🍅, feta and colby cheese 🧀. I use the Olive Garden salad dressing to coat it to taste and add some salt. What's great about it?
Low fat 👎
Can be eaten cold or room temp ❄️
Gets BETTER as it sits in the fridge ☃️
What do you guys do for food for the week?
Climbed so much stairs that I cannot feel my legs now 🙈

When your Aunty is a princess how could you not have a smile ear to ear!?
