Embracing Your Truth!!!

Embrace Your Truth

Every time you look into your passenger side mirror you are bound to see the words: “OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR!” For me, this phrase which is emphasized as a safety precaution while driving, holds so much more value than just driving!

You ever sit and focus on your life? Things you need to change, want to change, the blessings and victories, then realize that there is still so much more in life!

✨Are you LIVING or just EXISTING✨

For some of us we continue to put off things because we think we have tons of time left to make major moves! Sometimes we hold off making changes in our diet and financial situation until the next month! This is meeeeee!!!! 🤦🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️ I mean who wants to throw out all the hostess coffee cakes, Jello pudding and chips (Mikesells Good and Hot 😂😂😂) Why waste when you can just indulge until they’re gone and then make the changes??? I meannnn. Y’all know y’all thinking the sameeeeee thang 😂

The problem with holding off the things we need to change that’ll push us closer to our destiny, is that we never really know how much time we have to make those changes.


We paint these pictures in our mind and heart on WHAT and WHO we should be; thus forgetting who GOD has called us to BE! We HIDE behind the MASKS to stop people from seeing the TRUTH behind our SMILE and EYES!!! We pretend well for people who don’t even have a clue!

EMBRACING your TRUTH helps FREE you and keep you from being BOUND by things that only destroy you on inside and then out!

Don’t be AFRAID to EMBRACE Your TRUTH because of how others will begin to view you!

As you go through your JOURNEY and STROLL down the PATH meant for you there will be people DISMISSING what you’ve been through. In reality they have yet to be FREE from the things that keep them BOUND!

Me talking about how I made it out, how I pushed through is a TESTIMONY to the fact that I had to EXPERIENCE things in order to PUSH FORWARD in other things. Recently I had a conversation with my older niece about how she had wished we were in each other’s life sooner. I had to be FULLY HONEST with her and let her know that the OLD ME… she would NOTTTT have liked me much at all! 🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

✨✨I was rebellious, far from being saved, I cussed like a sailor, sex was my life 🤷🏾‍♀️ (I had a serious PROBLEM), I suffered from an eating disorder, alcohol, prescription pain meds, depression and suicide attempts!! Because of everything that I endured and allowed God to bring me out of has made me a much better person!!✨✨

Had I been in their life when they were little girls, now 23 and 21, I would have led them far off the tracks. Being in BONDAGE to my PAST and HURTING from the PAIN, all I knew to do was HURT others! Make PROMISES I had NO INTENTION of KEEPING! Now being in their life I LOVE every minute of it!!! I don’t hold nothing back from them. They know everything and they know the JOURNEY that I’m on. Having them here with me in this journey with their encouragement means more to me than anything. PRIE and QUIN may be my BIGGEST SUPPORTS and HYPE WOMEN!


“Embracing Your Truth” doesn’t mean HARBORING on the things that HURT you! It doesn’t mean you STAY STUCK because others want you to HUSH! It doesn’t mean or DISCREDIT that you’ve gone THROUGH HELL and back. What it does symbolize is you taking every step possible to be FREE and WHOLE as a result of going through!

Don’t be afraid to shine and glow because others maintain their misery and want you to join that hectic circus with them!

💚We can’t heal if we aren’t honest with ourselves💚

You see the FREEDOM we want, the HEALING we need and the DELIVERANCE we seek is closer than we can even imagine! 🙏🏽💪🏾Taking the steps towards each is definitely going to take ya out of our COMFORT ZONE. Ask me how I knowwww???

You’re not gonna make an 180 degree turn around over night. Your life didn’t get off track over night. 🤷🏾‍♀️😱

As we look back, we only need to allow it to push us forward and propel us to higher heights because we’re able to see where we have come and where we are headed!

As the mirror image represents… OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR…when we constantly looking towards everything BUT GOD, we tend to get off focus and get very distracted. We become inpatient because instead of embracing the moment that we are in we’re more focused on where we need to go and how much further we need to go!

Let’s just embrace the moments that we have in the HERE and see what God expects from us NOW!!!

You have to rock hard for yourself even when nobody else does! You have to LOVE Yourself more than loving others! When you begin to embrace your truth, the person you used to be will no longer bring regrets! Embracing your truth helps you to understand all that you have been through and then look to God in helping you become whole and free.


Don’t Give Up! Remember God works ALL things together for your GOOD!!!!
