When You Close Your Eyes, How Do You Envision Your Life?

Originally posted on Love When Avon Calls :
My blog title is one of the best questions you can ask yourself. A person with vision is one who is going somewhere. No one gets to where they want to be without vision. So, take the time right now, and close your eyes. What do you see for yourself and how do you want your life to be? We ALL should be living a blessed life! That does not mean there will be no trials or days that are harder than others. It means that we have the capacity to face the trials and hard days with more ease than maybe we do now. Money does not make people happy, but it is a vehicle that can bring a lot more blessing to not only ourselves but to others around us. Money is a currency. It flows like a river and has a current. What is the currency you see in your life and where will it get you in the days to come? My job and…

Cheaters Never Really Prosper

I remember my mother used to always tell me “cheaters never prosper” when I was younger. I think its one of those old sayings that came from some wise sage but at the moment I don’t really feel like looking it up. I’m sure Google will have the answer if anyone is curious. The saying is true though. Cheaters might look like they are doing well for a time but eventually they get what is coming to them. It always makes me a little sad when people who don’t deserve it get taken advantage of. Over the years I have seen it happen. Employers take advantage of employees, business partners are crooked, spouses cheating on one another in relationships, someone stealing another’s wallet when they are not looking and taking everything they have left by charging on their credit and debit cards. It happens in this world and its sad that it does. There is something that the rest of us can count on though. God is faithful and He also created a universe that …

Another Way to Be Supportive of My Ministry

I discovered that Avon, as a company, supports the cause of helping women who are or have endured abuse. This is passionately the focus of my ministry for women! So I have added Avon to one of my business practices in order to support and help fund my ministry. Currently, I am working on my official non profit status and my ministry office outside of my home. This will be a place women can come individually to me for help emotionally and spiritually. Also, in the plan are support/prayer groups, phone sessions, and my prayer line. My focus is Pastoral Care, not clinical therapy. I am also a spiritual life coach working toward empowering women into their purpose. My ultimate goal is Voice of Hope Victory and Prayer Center, which is a future dream in order to expand the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ with a focus on healing, life advancement through Biblical practices, and much more. I so appreciate all who read my blog and have come to me for prayer and …

Narcissistic Love Bombing: Have You Been Its Target?

I suppose before I start, for those who do not know, I should explain what “love bombing” is and why it is a part of relationship abuse cycles. Love bombing is something  someone who is a narcissist, or potential abuser, does in order to hook someone into a relationship very quickly with them. They do this by pouring out love and devotion way too soon during your connection. For instance, you meet someone and within a day they are “in love with you” and know you are the one they want the rest of their life. During love bombing you will get messages all day long, phone calls, emails, texts, and all of them will have undying devotion. Statements like “I know you are the one” or “I am going to marry you some day” will come out of them far before that person even knows you very well. You will receive complements, flowers, a continual connection, and all of your time will be consumed by this narcissistic person. You will be his/her love of …

Why Empaths Are More Intelligent Than Narcissist

Originally posted on So Long Sociopath:
Likely if you have been unfortunate enough to be fooled or nearly destroyed by a Narcissist or Sociopath you share two  things in common with other victims, one,  you have an amazing heart. That part may not surprise you, of course you have to have a beautiful heart to love such ugly souls. ? The other thing you share in common may come as a surprise, you are highly intelligent. Maybe you forgot that, maybe you have been defined by your choice to even involve yourself with such a horrible person instead of understanding that it was not stupidity that led you there but instead a heart of gold and a need to love the unloveable. ? I was certain that I was on the lower side of the IQ scale after my relationships and during them. I can not tell you how many times I would pound my steering wheel, tears in eyes, thinking ‘stupid, stupid, stupid.’ I felt fooled, the chances I handed out were like candy…

When Differing Opinions Set Us Apart

Someone I knew a long time ago used to say “Opinions are like people’s behinds, everyone has one”. (I cleaned it up a bit for this post). It’s true. We all have an opinion and we could never ever possibly agree all of the time. The cool thing about our country is that we have freedom of speech and voicing our opinions is a real privilege. We should value that privilege because many don’t have it and we also might learn from others. Our differences should not divide us but inspire us to consider more. Maybe they should inspire us to consider other possible ways of thinking or even believing. When differences are excessive, then we might be way too different to hang around one another and setting ourselves apart is usually necessary. Sometimes our differences can just be one opinion or another though. Shutting those out will deny ourselves the gift of who we are  to one another and also in learning from each other. I’m so blessed when people don’t delete me when …
