Great advice.

Dakota CorbinAlways late in picking me up from school, or my ballet class, mum was always busy, running around errands, even for people she barely knew. At a certain point in my childhood, I started feeling neglected. Still, I had a mum who was active, played like a kid, and who at times would totally…

Sharing:  A Letter To The Woman Who Thinks She’s Too Fat To Be Loved


We are all loved no matter what we look like. 👸 Sara

Unsplash / Zach GuintaYour worth is not tied to a number on the scale. You’ve grown to believe that your worth correlates with whatever number is on the scale. The lower the number, the more worthy you believe you are. When the numbers start to swing the other direction, your self-worth plummets. This mindset is…

This can help lots of people. ~Sara

Cristian NewmanIn my books, “The Empath’s Survival Guide” and “Emotional Freedom,” I describe emotional empaths as a species unto themselves. Whereas others may thrive on the togetherness of being a couple, for empaths like me, too much togetherness can be difficult, may cause us to bolt. Why? We tend to intuit and absorb our partner’s energy,…

Shared:  When Pain Stops You From Praying


Thank you Natalie. I needed this.

I have a confession to make. I believe the Lord wanted/wants me to pray for the full restoration of my relationship with my children’s Father.  It sounds bizarre, crazy and ridiculous, but in the core of my spirit this is what I believe He wants me to do, and yet I can’t. My ex has […]

Monday, Monday…


Have you ever had a morning where you are just not sure what is happening in your life?  I have woken up like this the last few days.   I have tried to keep myself busy so I would not be missing my son so much.  I am glad that he is visiting his father.  I just realized yesterday how much I missed him.  When I went to a football game I found myself wanting to be a soccer mom.  I could picture myself taking my son to every activity under the sun.  When I went shopping I saw books and movies that I knew he would love.  I could have driven myself to tears in the middle of the mall.  I just kept going because I knew that I could enjoy these same activities when he got back.  See I don’t need to be a supermom who tries to give my son different things to make him happy.  I just have to give him my attention and love.  You know that song by the BeatlesCan’t Buy Me Love“.  I lived that for 3 years of my life.  My son’s father would go on shopping sprees whether it was food or movies and get everything he thought we needed.  The one thing he couldn’t give me was the love and attention that my soul yearned for.  Don’t get me wrong having a movie every now and then was great.  I just wanted him to say how much he appreciated me.  Every day I would fill his water bottles so he would have something to drink when he went to work.  I made sure he had clean clothes to wear when he went to work.  I cleaned the dishes so we would have something to eat on.  I cleaned the houses so it would look nice when he brought his friends over.  No matter what I did I just didn’t feel appreciated.  Now when I do something I am just glad to get a simple thank you because it means the world to me.
