I love love love this video. This video helped me to accept the hard times I went through in life. It helped me to see that I HAD to go through those things to be where I am today, and to where God wants me to be in the future. Below is the song he was making "I Am". Really listen to the lyrics.

Devalue/ Bloom where you're planted

   
De·val·ue verb  reduce or underestimate the worth or importance of.
 
    Devalue is  the COMPLETE the opposite of  the words Worthy, Worth It & Priceless. But I have come to know it is the reason how and why we get ourselves into many bad situations. We devalue the people in our lives by comparing them or taking them for granted. We devalue or partners by only looking at the negative when we have had enough. We devalue what we have accomplished by  looking at how far we have to go. We can also devalue ourselves by not blooming where we are planted.

What you have may not be what you want or how you envisioned your life but do NOT make your life harder by trying to get to point A to Z the fast way. There are steps all the way between that you must hit to really be able to enjoy those rewards and if you move too fast you may regret it.

Warning signs of Dating Abuse

The information stated below is from loveisrespect.org

Dating abuse is a pattern of destructive behaviors used to exert power and control over a dating partner. While we define dating violence as a pattern, that doesn’t mean the first instance of abuse is not dating violence. It just recognizes that dating violence usually involves a series of abusive behaviors over a course of time.

Warning Signs of Abuse
Because relationships exist on a spectrum, it can be hard to tell when a behavior crosses the line from healthy to unhealthy or even abusive. Use these warning signs of abuse to see if your relationship is going in the wrong direction:
 • Checking your cell phone or email without permission
 • Constantly putting you down
• Extreme jealousy or insecurity
 • Explosive temper
 • Isolating you from family or friends
• Making false accusations
• Mood swings
• Physically hurting you in any way
 • Possessiveness
• Telling you what to do

Learn more about how unhealthy relationships work by exploring our power and control wheel at loveisrespect.org.

Domestic Violence Awareness

Hello Everyone,

 I was going to wait until October to start this but what God allowed me to realize is the message was needed now and for someone October could be to late.
   What am I talking about you ask Domestic Violence.
   We are losing A lot of our young women to this and I don't want to see it go any further.
  So I will be getting into contact with women and men to see if we can help someone out there with this issue.
   When it comes to domestic violence you hear "if she knew her worth, she wouldn't be in that relationship" It's not that simple.

I am hoping that this can help someone.
