Focus on your own business.

These days, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of comparing lives and becoming envious of what others have when you have platforms like social media, where you get to see stories on snapchat or instagram, holiday pics on facebook and for some reason, that reminded me of window shopping.

Let’s just say we’re all business owners.

One day, you come across a fancy looking shop.

From the outside looking in, it looks very appealing and clean. Perfect in every way, no mess, no stress, every mannequin dressed to impress.

You walk into their store and straight away, you’re attracted to all the great vibes and signs they’re giving you.

“CLEARANCE SALE”, “NOTHING OVER $10” and “BUY 1 GET 1 FREE”.

You start feeling down and sad thinking about your own business, it’s not as fancy and it’s not in good condition or located in a nice area like this one.

So you start investing so much of your thoughts and energy wanting everything in that store for your own shop.

You’re almost sold on everything you see, but the closer you get to read the signs it says:

“CLEARANCE SALE… red marked items only.”

“NOTHING OVER $10….. faulty or damaged.”

“BUY 1 GET 1 FREE….only on selected styles.”

You then realise, this shop isn’t what you expected or what they made it out to be. You wished you had more faith in your own shop with all the doubt and shame you started thinking, when the fancy shop had problems just like yours, they were just better at disguising it.

Moral of the story is – Everything isn’t what it seems.

Some people like to advertise and promote all the great things that are happening in their lives, but put all the things that they’re not so confident about or proud of in small print, where it’s hardly noticable.

The truth is, all our shops could do with a bit of work, but instead of competing with eachother, we need to work together and not be afraid to open up to others and learn from eachothers mistakes.

Every shop is unique and we all have different things to offer, so don’t worry about what others have or do with their business, focus on your own and work on what you can bring to the market.

And remember “Nothing comes to sleepers, but a dream” – George Veikoso

If you want a fancy shop, work hard for it.
If you’re content with what you have, thank God for it.

God doesn’t want us to impress eachother, He wants us to love one another and be more like Jesus.

So don’t let the life your neighbour is living get you down, just focus on your own journey and keep striving for that eternal crownπŸ™

 

Upskill, Uplift, Uphold.

Don’t be two-faced. Introduce the gossiper in you, to the gospel in you.

Be the kind of woman that brings women together, not the kind of woman that holds the bridge to unite everyone but continues to play the role of the troll.

Go out of your way to escape from the sin, instead of making others feel uncomfortable in their skin.

Pray for God’s direction and blessings on your new ventures, pray for perserverance and passion in existing ones and pray for strength and guidance in any failed ones.

It is better to try on many hats and fail with God in your life, than to have too many faces and succeed with satan by your side.

Be you and be true and let God handle the restπŸ™Œ


 

Your daughter is watching you. What kind of woman are you raising?

As mothers, we are usually (but not always) our daughters first example of what a woman is.

Our words, our actions and our very being are being observed through the eyes of our innocent yet curious daughters who are often mistaken as “just kids” so we think they don’t understand. But love and hate don’t need an explaination to be understood. As the saying goes “actions speak louder than words” so everything we do and say echoes through our home and rest in our babies hearts.

We and the women we choose to surround ourselves with, set the standards of how they expect a woman “should” act or be treated.

So please be conscious of the decisions you make in your life and invest in your childrens manners, their health, their education, their friends and their general well being as it not only stops at them, those traits and habits get passed onto their children and their grandchildren and so on.

I for one am far far faaaaar from a perfect example and still have a lot to learn as a mother and a woman but for starters, I’m not following the rules of the world anymore, I’m trusting in God’s word and my prayers to guide me and my family and trying my best to protect their innocence in a world that is trying to expose our children to satan’s work quicker than you can eat a snicker 😩

Our children are our future and most women (not all) have a big influence in how things are run in the household, although we may not be the head of the family, we are the heart and the strength of our home so let your daughter see who God made you to be βœŠπŸ’–πŸ‘‘

I’m worth it.

Stop bending over backwards for guys that can’t be upfront with you.

Don’t drop everything in a heartbeat for a guy that won’t lift you up in a heartbreak.

Why you tripping over a guy whose chasing other girls?

You don’t need to get into his bed, to get ahead.

Don’t leave a good man for a guy that wants a “bad bitch”.

I’m tired of seeing women being disrespected and unappreciated by some men.

No amount of years in a relationship is worth your tears. No amount of sex is worth the pain. No amount of money is worth your dignity. No amount of man is worth your woman!

We deserve to be loved right, we deserve to be held tight. We deserve someone to be there for us in the day and through the night.

Don’t waste your time questioning is he worth all the pain and shame he’s putting you through.

Naaaaw sis, are YOU worth all the pain and shame he’s putting you through!

Stop sitting on the fence of self doubt and start standing up on the roof of self love!

We are worth it ✊
