Real Talk to Give You Life

Another year older, another year of lessons going forward.

You and Me are walking through the journey of life.

If God has granted you life, make a choice to follow Jesus.

Know that not every person you started with will end with you

Do not apologize for making yourself a priority.

Make hard decisions.

Eliminate negativity.

Think before you speak.

Maintain a level of poise and class even with the haters.

Be a magnet of positivity.

Do your best.

Real Talk to Give You Life

Real Talk to Give You Life

I remember for the longest time being the friend who meddled and invested my time, energy, and resources to the people around me. I felt like it was my job to save everyone even at the expense of my own happiness. I tell you it is draining.

There is nothing wrong with caring about people, BUT it is important to take care of your needs too. Some people you invest in may only bring you further down. Your constant, toxic investment in someone will divest your life and well-being. I have had to separate myself from toxic people. Their drama and issues made me feel worse. There was no give and take; it was me giving while they took. I would be drained and unhappy.

Moral of the Story: Care about yourself. Know that your mind, heart, and being matters too. Let no person still your joy. Eliminate the people who steal your joy and do not support you in your time of need. Do not be afraid to make yourself a priority.

5 Blissful Tips for 2017

5 Blissful Tips for 2017

Well 2016 is almost over. It’s really been something. My year has been a rollercoaster of great times and moments to hard lessons to learn. But we have lived to see another year. 2017 can be greater than the last. So for my last post of 2016, I will give you 5 Blissful Tips to Remember going Forward into 2017.

  1. The setbacks of 2016 are lessons if you don’t allow them to keep you down in 2017. If you did not know, life is not a perfect cloud of happiness. You have to get up and brush yourself off. Don’t let the failures overtake you and do not let people use it against you. Your story is YOUR STORY. Take ownership of your life. Keep moving forward.
  2. Be thankful for what you have but keep a hunger for what you want to have. Your goals and dreams are valid. No matter where you are, no matter how old you are, no matter how much time you lost, as long as there is breath in your body, you can achieve anything. Hustle hard!!
  3. Eliminate, Eliminate, Eliminate. Know that you have one life to live. You have purpose in life. And you have a divine right to remove, unfriend,and separate yourself from toxic people and things who make it their business to infringe negativity on your life. Take your life back!!!
  4. Indulge Yourself. Take care of yourself mind, body, and spirit. Only you can determine what you need. Treat yourself every once in a while.
  5. Keep God first. I will always keep going back to that but it’s true. God is perfect and all-knowing. He knows your heart and your passions. Trust His truth, Trust His Word.

May you all have a Happy New Year. Keep moving forward, keep God first, love the skin you are in, and strive for excellence. Love you all. Thank you being on this journey with me these past four months!! See you in 2017!!!

Blissfully,

Bianca

A Breath of Fresh Air

A Breath of Fresh Air

My Breath of Fresh Air is to discern to live in truth rather than the world’s opinions and expectations.

Before,  I would be passive and allow the bad things to take room with the positive, whether it was people or things.

Lately, my convictions have caused me to go outside of my “safe Christian comfort level.”I have been at such a crossroads with people and things that I thought were true and genuine. I started understanding that the road to heaven is not broad but narrow. I started acting on my convictions and actively making tough decisions.

God’s discernment is key because it guides and directs your path. When you know God’s truths, then your discernment kicks in. You are not swayed by popular opinion but rely on God’s truths in the decisions you make. But to get discernment from Him, you have to have knowledge of God’s truths through His Word. To have that understanding you must be saved and ask Jesus to come into your heart. From His Word, you get infallible truth that does not fade.

BUT, you have to want that truth and act on the convictions God gives you (Easier said than done). Ask God to give discernment and also courage to act. And He will see you through. It is not enough to read it and put it aside. You can’t go the other things or people for truth because it will fail you down the line and disappoint you.

Discernment gives you growth. You are growing into the person God has called you to be. Do not be afraid. God has not given us a spirit of fear.

Pray for conviction. Pray for discernment. Pray for courage to act on your convictions.

I will leave you with God’s truths about discernment and knowledge:

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.-Proverbs 18:15

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.-Romans 13:11

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.-Psalm 1:1-2

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.-Proverbs 4:7

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,  filled with the fruit of righteousnessthat comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.-Philippians 1:9-11

Have a blessed week and Thanksgiving. I will have a special post for that soon.

Blissfully,
