Keep on keeping on

It’s been a long time since I wrote on here, a lot has changed mostly for the better. I’m still here, working on myself a little every day. I’m really excited because recently I was able to return to doing something I love that I thought I would never be able to do again because of a back injury. I’m dancing!! Ok mostly I’m teaching dance and watching my soul come to life in choreography. My body can’t keep up with my heart, but that’s not going to stop me!

Anyway, I just wanted to quickly post that I’m still here, and am currently rereading my posts and reminding myself that I NEED to take time to take care of myself! Life gets busy- well does it actually ever stop being busy?! Not unless we force ourselves to slow down- step away from the never ending chores and work and homework and just breathe. That’s it- go somewhere quiet for awhile and take a breath, remind yourself that life is indeed wonderful, even if the vacuuming and laundry and dishes and dinner aren’t taken care of. Even if you can’t do everything or be everything you want to. Lately I’ve been feeling like as hard as I try I just can’t be everything for everyone. Kinda silly but I forget that sometimes. Sometimes I forget that it’s ok not to be the perfect wife, mother, daughter, or employee 24/7. No one is and to expect that of yourself isn’t ok. Would I ever expect that of anyone around me? Heck no!!! Then why on earth do I expect that of myself? If that’s how your feeling- stop! Right here, right now- lets take a deep breath together and stop expecting the impossible of ourselves. One breath, one second, one minute at a time. We can do this thing called life- we won’t be prefect at it but we CAN do it!

Remember who created you, who loves you more than you can comprehend. I believe in life after death, and I also believe during that time I will no longer be crippled by anxiety, depression, and PTSD. One day, I won’t have to work so incredibly hard to find joy happiness and peace. But for now, I pray. I dance. I breathe. And I need to get back in the habit of spending quality time in the scriptures every day. Because that’s where I draw my strength. My Heavenly Father loves me- I am his beloved daughter. You are his beloved child too! We are children of God and as such are recipients of his love, always. No matter how bad we think we’ve messed up- he still loves us. And he will be there when we’re ready. Take care of yourself!

DV Awareness: Have You Ever Felt Invisible?

I wish this wasn’t so prevalent, but it is. Especially during teenage years when friendships often shift. Help wherever you can. Be a friend, a light to someone who needs it, even if they don’t look like they do. Everyone deserves kindness and love. EVERYONE! We are all children of God, we should treat each other as such.

you’re not invisible!

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

“Invisible” is how many have felt as they have been emotionally and psychologically abused. Whether as small children, teenagers, or through adulthood, being ignored or rejected through bullying and abuse causes wounds that deeply affect each victim. No one is “invisible”, and we should treat all the way that we would want to be treated.

Have you ever felt invisible…
like you really didn’t exist?
That everything you say or do…
is somehow totally missed.

DV Awareness: Verbal Abuse

I can personally attest that it is so much easier to build children up than to repair the damage as an adult! Let’s do our best to encourage all children around us every chance we get- you never know when your kindness might save a life!

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

For October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I want to continue to talk about different aspects of abuse and it’s effects. Many adults live with the effects of the negative words spoken against them from their childhood. Words tear down and cause hidden wounds that we don’t see but they affect our future decisions and relationships.  I pray that more will realize the Power of the Spoken Word and begin to speak positive to all.

It’s easier to build up a child…
than an adult be repaired.
Cause verbal abuse hurts…
with many not being spared.

DV Awareness: Sticks and Stones and Words Hurt

I wholeheartedly agree!

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

So many of us have been raised with the false words of the famous rhyme, “Sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you.” This is so untrue. Words hurt more than most people realize and inflict wounds on the souls of many from youth to adults…

Sticks and stones…
may break your bones…

but words won’t hurt you…
has NEVER been true.

FOR many words spoken…
can make you broken…

Verbal and Emotional Abuse… the Damage Left Behind

This speaks so directly to what I’ve experienced! And sadly it is so very true- this type of abuse leaves invisible wounds that only those who experience it can see and feel. But those invisible wounds lead to suicide, doesn’t that make it just as real?

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

Thoughts of these abuses have been repeatedly coming to me the last few days. The problem is that so many people still do not believe that verbal and emotional abuse is significant. They think that unless bruises are evident then the abuse was not relevant. However, these people are so wrong! Most of these abuses are hidden from view but they are still there and the victim not only hears the hidden meaning, but they feel the stabs of these wounding words…

Verbal and emotional abuse…
keep coming to my mind.
But many don’t believe…
the damage left behind.
But words can build up…
or words can harm.
And many are spoken…
with deceptive charm.
With abusive daggers…
hidden deep beneath.
It’s the abuser’s ploy…
of hidden deceit.

Chop…Chop…Chop! ~ A Vision of Abuse

This post made me cry, it’s like the author took the feelings deep in my heart and expressed them in words. đź’”

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

Chop…Chop…Chop…
Were the 3 words that I heard.
As I saw a vision…
of a chopping that was blurred.
I saw the motion…
of these repeated hits.
And just knew the target…
a heart being chopped to bits.
