Desire vs Purpose
I was reading Will Smith book, Will. In his book he express how desire and purpose are similar but yet different. Smith say, " Desire is personal, narrow, and pointed, and tends towards self-preservation, self-gratification, and short-term gains and pleasures. Purpose is wider, broader, a long-term vision encompassing the benefits of others- something outside of yourself you're willing to fight for." I felt this was powerful and important part of life to understand. #NoRegertsJustsLifeLessons

Seize the moment to fulfill your purpose
Don't miss out on opportunities because you don't think you qualify. Take advantage of opportunities because you don't know where it may lead you. Seize the moment is to take full advantage of life's opportunities whenever and wherever they present themselves to live to one's full potential. I've tried to get the most out of life by always seizing the moment. #NoRegretsJustLifeLessons

Your voice has purpose!!!!
Your words hold power. Words are like seeds, you can plant a seed of of positivity. To encourage, uplift, and inspire. Or you can plant a seed of negativity, that can discourage and hinder. I had a teach before share this quote: " Watch your thoughts they become words, watch your words they become actions, watch your actions they become habits, watch your habits they become character, watch your character for it becomes your destiny" Anonymous. #NoRegretsJustLikeLessons

Protect your peace with healthy boundaries is a important life lessons that should be embrace. Having peace in your life helps you live a joyful life. Peace bring so much love joy and happiness, that you have to protect your peace. Sometimes you have to avoid situations or people who tries to interrupt your peace. In my morning devotion it said boundaries are necessary to protect what is sacred to us. Also that healthy boundaries means making changes if there are people who are unsafe or unwise to be around. #NoRegretsJustLifeLessons

Accept the unplan
Random moment topic: Accept the unplan and be consistent in your life. Life is like red light, green light, and yellow light. Red light mean to stop and reflect and focus on yourself. Green light means your hard work and opportunities are present to you. Everything you pray for and manifest is right there for you to embrace and go for it. Yellow light means to slow down, don't be in a rush, and allow everything to fall in to place. Remember God's timing is the best timing. #NoRegretsJustLifeLessons

Balancing living your life and grieving of love one
The reality of figuring out a balance of living your life and grieving of love one is truly an ongoing process. I go over the 5 stages of grief, which are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I express my experience of this through the death of my loving, cousin Erricka Barbosa. While recording this episode, I realized what I needed to do to keep myself going. Which is to be consistent, surround myself with people who are supportive and that can keep me accountable, and lastly show myself compassion. #NoRegretsJustLifeLessons

Be aware of your emotions and feelings
Be aware of your emotions and feeling can help you make healthy choices for your life. I always say it ok to feel the way you feel and acknowledge your emotions. But it's not ok to stay that way or use it to make up excuses for your life. Part of the process is being honest with yourself and being true to yourself, so you can live in truth. #NoRegretsJustLifeLessons

My journey: Be your own self advocate part one
Be your own self advocate is a very important because it is you using your voice to stand up for yourself in any type of situation. However, I will be talking about being your own self advocate in the medical field. Make sure you have a clear understand of what going on, know your rights, and ask questions. Don't allow other to make a decision for you, but you make the decision. Never make a decision out fear, pressure, or confusion. Take the time for your self and process everything before you decide on what best for you and your body. #NoRegretsJustLifeLesson

Loyalty doesn't mean control or manipulation, but loyalty is a act of love and support. I choose to do this topic because I have seen and been in situation where loyalty was miss used. Loyalty is not selfish but selfless, is a strong bond that betrayal is not an option. #NoRergetJustLifeLesson

Unspoken... Let's be on our Cicely Tyson behavior part 1
Today episode was based off a chapter from Cicely Tyson book, Just As I Am. The chapter was called Unspoken. Ms. Tyson shared how she was not educated about her menstrual cycle or how a female becomes pregnant. She did what she told without any explanation. I feel that upsoken conversations that parents may avoid about sex needs to stop. If we don't have the conversation with our children, we are leading our children into the world blindsided.
