Une amie m'a dit récemment: "personne ne te connaîtra jamais mieux que toi-même", alors exprime toi avec tes propres mots, car tu es la seule personne qui sache vraiment ce que tu ressens, ce que tu veux,ce dont tu as besoin, les autres personnes essaieront juste de deviner mais n'y arriveront jamais complètement, leurs idées ne refléteront jamais parfaitement tes pensées, les mots inexprimés restent inexprimés.Tu es le/la plus apte à défendre ta cause mieux que personne ne le fera alors élève ta voix et exprime toi (nobody will defend your cause like you are able to, so raise your voice and express yourself)
Qu'en pensez-vous ?

Art museums, they are the closest thing to a flower field that feels like home. Walk me through either and my soul blooms. 💙

Travel has this way of waking you up to your most dormant parts. Unfamiliar places force your senses into a particular state of alertness. One cannot function abroad on autopilot, we must be aware and focused. We must be fully there, and thus, fully alive.
I went to Guatemala earlier this month to experience just that. Life in Atlanta had been busy — full of work, sleep, write, gym, repeat. Structure and ass-busting are critical during this season of my life, but I have to be careful with routine. Like @jedidiahjenkins says, “it’s the enemy of time. It makes it fly by.” And fly by, it has been.
So I opted for a fairly last-minute trip to Guatemala for the holiday. Just me, a backpack and 8 days with no plans. I’d been to Guatemala before, but it was years ago, long before travel and I were really an item. I was young & wide-eyed, and that trip was actually the catalyst to me quitting my job and turning my life into what it is now — my own.
Returning to Guatemala was like being on a healthy binge of nostalgia and hope. The volcanoes and lush green hills were just as I’d remembered them — even my favorite breakfast spot was unchanged and as perfect as ever. The exchange rate hadn’t moved a penny and the only thing I was disappointed about the entire trip was how terribly rusty my Spanish had become. Use it or lose it, they say.
But like any trip, it’s what you didn’t plan on finding that makes it. I had no idea that going to Guatemala would actually bring me a little closer to home; closer to myself. As I watched the days trickle by slowly and the sun set a little differently, I fell a little more in love with it all. I felt a lightness that I’ve been reaching towards for oh so long, and on the heels of the year that chewed me up and spit me back out, I found a love for myself that I’ve never known before.
As I jumped in the lake each day, I washed off old stories, leaving them to sink like the stones they are, never to surface again. And as I floated on my back and stared in awe at the volcanoes that towered above, I smiled and remembered exactly who I was. She’d been there all along.
Guatemala, you are so very holy to me. Thank you.
I know everyone has their own opinion on what modesty is for them. I’m not here to debate but to me is about honoring my body.
We live in a culture that tells us that wearing booty shorts and showing your goodies is your right as a woman. It’s your body, so go ahead and do what you want. And guess what, THEY ARE RIGHT! You can do as you wish because God gave us free will to choose what we can and cannot do. BUT.... just because you can do it doesn’t mean you should.
Sis, hear me out! If you consider yourself a Christian, which means a follower of Jesus - you must resist the urge to do as culture tells you. We have been called and set apart, which includes treating your body as something sacred. I’m often conflicted when I see “Godly women” looking live video vixens talking about Jesus in their post. It’s my personal conflict.
When I dressed provocatively in no way shape or form was I thinking about Jesus. I was thinking about catching someone’s eye. I took and shared pictures for attention because I found value in my curves. I found value on the attention I received.
BUT GOD, He opened my eyes and reminded me WHY I need to cover up. WHY is important to dress in a way to honor Him. WHY He made me, and it was not to be walking around like a cheap, fast, and easy target.
No ma’am. I am the daughter of the most HIGH God. I am ROYALTY because of Him... and SO ARE YOU!!! So, my dear sister... It’s time we act and dress like it!
