What I Pray For

Sista, my prayer for you:

 

May every single day be filled with the wonder of God’s special love for you.

I pray for your happiness, but also for a greater sense of fulfillment in your career and purpose, an ease of communication with those you love, and a sense of satisfaction in all that you have accomplished. Above all, may you rest secure in the knowing of God’s presence. Regardless of how lonely you feel or how difficult a situation- you are never alone. 

I pray for you to be happy and expectant about what is on the horizon in 2016.

I pray for smiles and love.

I pray for friends that are true and authentic.

I pray for kindness and compassion.

I pray for unexpected moments of joy and laughter.

I pray for you to be at peace. 

I pray you walk taller and shine brighter. I pray you shake off any self-defeating thoughts and truly own your beauty.  I pray you are healthy and whole- body, mind and spirit. I pray you stay spiritually centered.

May God keep you in touch with all that you are and all that you are meant to become. May you have the strength and discernment to remove any toxic person who does not celebrate and encourage the woman you are becoming.

 

Keep praying and stay in constant communication with God. 

Keep believing.

Keep moving forward.

 

Amen.

GET TO STEPPIN’ SISTA

Tiff_fringe_bootie

TGIF!  I want to end the week with an inspiring passage from an awesome book, Shift Happens! by Robert Holden, Ph.D.

One step is all it takes to find your bridge– one “YES”, one act of courage, one radical thought, one shift in perception, one dare, one prayer, one moment of forgiveness, one apology, or one phone call. Remember, you are the alchemist. The world mirrors your intention, your trust, and your faith. Either you can wait, or you can start walking.

Unless you choose happiness,

you will wait forever for it.

Unless you bring a new intention,

the outcome will be the same.

Unless you let go of your past,

you will not see the present.

Unless you drop your defenses,

you will never reach safety.

Unless you first commit to her,

you will not see her beauty.

Unless you first commit to him,

he cannot be the one.

Unless you are ready to love,

you will not find love.

Unless you give up your ego,

you will not discover your spirit.

Wishing you a weekend full of fun and refueling! Dance across the living room to an old Madonna song. Take a bubble bath and sing at the top of your lungs like Julia Roberts did in Pretty Woman. Pick up a bouquet of your favorite flowers. Watch the squirrels play in the backyard. 

Do whatever it is that makes your Spirit happy.

Love, Tiff

A Little Love Note

Good Morning Gorgeous!

When I was a little girl, my mom did the most wonderful thing….about once a week she would put a sweet note in my lunch box or by the sink in the bathroom before I woke up.  She always wrote something encouraging and told me how much she loved me.  Right now, I can visualize her handwriting.   Those little love notes made such an impact on me.  Thanks Mama!  When I decided to start a blog, that was also my intention.   To make an impact through expressing love + encouragement and sharing ideas, tips + experiences. 

Here’s a little love for your day ahead…. 

You are full of potential, possibility, beauty,  light,  gifts + talents.  Own the fact that you are a gloriously gorgeous child of God.  (take a beat and really think about that)

As you step out your door today–with your shoulders back and head held high– realize you are full of power not weakness!   Shed that wimpy persona.  It’s not you girlfriend!

YOU ARE WORTHY OF ALL YOUR HEART’S DESIRES!

Go for it.  Don’t hold back. Rock on with your bad self!

I Love You,

Tiff
