Tuesday Ten (I am _ right now)

Joining up with Miss Mommy for Tuesday Ten. Today we are following her prompt and hope you can join us.

I am
feeling a sense of expectation and hope since new things are in the horizon.
I wonder
what the future holds for me. Especially the not so far future, like by Friday, what will have happened.
I see
Beauty and color and pomp. This is a personal choice to search for those things that make life beautiful.
I want
To rediscover myself and to participate in activities that I always loved but never had the opportunity to participate in.
I pretend
that I dont cry as much as I actually do.
I worry
That I might be too secretive or fearful of talking about my real feelings.
I cry
when I think that my relationship of 3 years and 7 months has come to an end.
I hope
To remain as optimistic as I am right now and to always know that things will be ok.
I dream
of a love filled with romance and passion. One that will take away my pain. I dream of my wedding day and the beauty that will be witnessed.
I feel
happy, hopeful and expectant. 

Friday Fancies #3

I love Friday Fancies. It feels like all these clothes are mine and just waiting to be worn. Thanx {av}for this wonderful idea. Today I chose to go classy as that is the feeling I have right now. Feeling good n classy; I like it. Hope you enjoy my outfit and pray to the dream fairy to bring it to me right now.

Tuesday Ten

Today am joining up with Nicole at Miss Mommy in Tuesday Ten.
My ten things today are things that God wants me to remember always:
1. I am never alone.
2. He loves and always will, no matter what happens.
3. Things will always turn out right if I believe.
4. Love is the greatest commandment of all.
5. I can tackle everything that I come across.
6. He knew me even before I was born and therefore is always with me.
7. His angels are always guarding me.
8. I am awesome.
9. He is all powerful and therefore nothing is beyond his reach.
10. He is the Source of everything good, all I have to do is Ask.
Hope you remember these too. God is always with us, no matter what.

{Allowing, Allow, Allowed}

al·low/əˈlou/

Verb:
  1. Admit (an event or activity) as legal or acceptable.
  2. Give (someone) permission to do something.

Allowing is one thing that I have thought about for days and days. The kind of allowing I am talking about is the idea of giving permission to do something. It is the opposite of resistance.
Sometimes, when I just sit and start thinking of the days when I felt down or low or negative or just there, I find that I was holding some kind of resistance.
For example, when I let my roommate in campus make me angry by saying evil things about my friends. I figure out that I was allowing her to directly talk bad about my friends to me. I gave her permission to do so and therefore I resisted any good that could have come out from my conversations with her. I resisted the good, and therefore I gave permission for the bad to enter into my life.
Sometimes, we become so accustomed to resisting good that we search for things that will make us feel bad or guilty or sad. Some of us are addicted to bad. Every time they think, every time they speak, they allow more negativity, more sadness to infiltrate their lives.
But, is it possible to always allow the good?

It is absolutely possible to allow good in whatever we do. The only thing we gotta do is look out for ways and activities that will make us happy. When I find myself, resisting good and allowing sadness to infiltrate my life, I try to focus on the good things in my life. The things that I have been blessed with, the most important being life. My ability to breathe freely and to be healthy. That alone is reason enough for me to focus on good.
When we allow good, we let go of the idea that we should control everything and everyone. When I allow (give permission) good, I let God shower his blessings upon my life.
And suddenly, I become more aware of the different opportunities that God is opening up for my expansion. For my eyes to see and for me to experience in greater and more satisfying detail.
Allow good today, Let it infiltrate your life and stop resisting its impact upon your life.
I allow happiness, laughter, smiles, joy, abundance, success and satisfaction to enter my life now.

Friday Fancies: Mix n Match

Hi my lovelies, how av missed you. First, TGIF. I cant believe its Friday already. Nonetheless, am not complaining. In fact, just the opposite. Trying to remain calm and smiling hoping for the best weekend ever. Its time to link up with {av} at long distance loving for the Friday Fancies.
I totally love what I’ve chosen this week and its so much fun. The problem is there is no occasion to wear this to and no money to buy all this. But anyway, you never know, the dream fairy might just make my wishes come true and bring me this set just as it is. I adore it and hope you do too.
Do not and I repeat DO NOT forget to Enjoy your Weekend.

Its Ok Thursday

First time linking up with Neely and Amber but I know its worth it. Hope you can join in and enjoy.

Its Ok Thursdays

Its Ok…..

That I just had a cup of coffee with my very sweet mother in law to be, yet I don’t really know whats going on between me and her son.
That I have cried several times this week wondering whether its time to leave.
That I am sometimes afraid of opening up because I think I might be burdening other people
That I find cooking a good way to relieve stress
That I am still optimistic even when things seem so bad
That I sometimes feel guilty for laughing when things are not going well
Its OK that yesterday I slept for over 15 hours, (I could not get out of bed)
Its OK for me to know that everything will be alright, no matter what.

Oh How Pinteresting

Beautiful Wednesday and time to link up at the Vintage Apple. I really hope you are enjoying this week and living life with clarity and constant joy.
Today, my pins are just random as is my life right now but am enjoying it and hope you do too.
