Finally Free!

Happy Sunday Readers!! I figured I check in before the summer is over. Vacation with my children is almost coming to an end. I’ll be back to blogging full time. Trust me, I do miss blogging and interacting with my readers.

So tell me my readers, how is your summer going? Was you able to take a vacation as well? Are you enjoying the heat and the rain that brings the breeze? I hope your summer is fulfilling. Be sure to make each day count. Always be grateful for the present which is a gift to us to be thankful for life.

I’ve been teaching sign language at a local library for over a month. Tomorrow will be the final class which is game day. I’m truly excited about game day. I’m beyond proud of myself for teaching sign language. It’s a very important skill to have. It is honestly a life skill and I’m honored to teach it to a community that wants to learn.

For so many years I’ve been looking for my passion. I had so many ideas I wanted to fulfilled, but they weren’t my passion. What was the point of fulfilling something that isn’t your passion? I’ve fulfilled so much, but they didn’t fulfill me like I wanted it to. It didn’t motivate me to continue with the project after it was already completed. Don’t get me wrong it was rewarding and I loved seeing the change/difference it created in someone’s life for the better. But something was missing.

I knew I was supposed to go back to being a motivational speaker, but something was missing. I couldn’t figure it out for the life of me. Then just one day, my hearing was working my nerves. I was experiencing an inflammation in my right ear. The doctor couldn’t figure out what it was. It was nerving. I was tired of taking steroids to slow down the inflammation. I didn’t want to accept the fact I would be losing more of my hearing.

Oh no, I was in straight denial. I was clinging onto wanting to hear my old music, and many sounds that were like a lullaby to my ears. I didn’t bother to take the time out to ask what was my current situation trying to teach me. I was being stubborn and I didn’t want to be bothered with the hearing community because they wouldn’t understand.

After all the crying, I had to force myself to dig deep within. I had to ask myself what was my progressive hearing loss was trying to teach me. I learned it was because of my stubbornness due to so many rejections I’ve faced in this life. And it’s what caused me to be isolated. It made me understood why the deaf community choose to isolate themselves from the hearing community. Yes, they’re stubborn, because they don’t want to face anymore rejections. They’ve had enough. People don’t want to see us for us!

After much thought, I decided to teach sign language to the hearing community. I’m dedicated to bringing awareness about hearing loss and how to better communicate. I had to travel back to my root in which I knew sign language since I was 3 years old. As I sat with my memories as they make their way back to me subconsciously, my family didn’t sign with me. They didn’t take the time to learn sign language. And because of that, I share with my students about the importance of teaching their children sign language. Fostering communication at an early age have many benefits. It increases a child’s vocabularies which increases their reading level. Babies can communicate as early as five months old through sign language. Why wait until your child is 11 months old or older to say their first word. Be proactive in their communication skills. It’ll pay off in the long run.

I’ve now found my passion which is teaching sign language and speaking in sign language. Sometimes you have to go back to your root to find your passion. And sometimes a life and/or health situation have to transpire to get your attention. Now all those ideas I had, I can now incorporate it with sign language. I have sign language game night coming up at the WestSide Tilth Farm. Sign language yoga is in the works. Best part is I’ve been including the hearing community. It’s all about being inclusive which is acceptance all across the board. I’m glad people are reaching out to me to learn this important life skill.

So with that being said, if you’re in a rough spot, ask yourself what is the situation trying to teach you. Humble yourself and take some quiet time for yourself to allow the message to come to you. It may not come right away, but it will when you are ready to receive. Love and light. I’ll be writing again sooner than you know.

Love Is My Language

Great Afternoon my Readers! How was your Monday? How’s your midday (Tuesday) going so far? Let’s abundant our day for ourselves and our family. May our work and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family. ASE!

My Monday (yesterday) was very reflective in other words I did some retrospection. I used to question myself how is I’m still speaking healing and life into people who had hurt me. I just couldn’t understand for the life of me how I can still care about someone and wanted to help uplift them to be better. See I don’t hold any hate, because it’s not my language. Love is my language. You know the saying, “to overcome or overshadow hate is with love”. Love overrides all the hurt, pain, and stands the test of time. Love is forgiveness, but it don’t necessarily mean you should bring a person back into your life. It just means you forgive, but never forget how it made you feel. Love is loving yourself to not go back to that hurt and pain. Love was learning the lesson of the journey to arrive where you’re at now and towards where you’ll be going.

Everyday I tell myself; “I am love. I am the loved and the lover. My love endures beginning within me. Love is my inner pendulum. It keeps me centered and balanced. As a love-bearing and centered person, I create happiness and joy in my life!” So obviously I’m getting what I’ve been putting into the Universe. I radiate love and I’m full of love. I can’t deny it from within myself. I can’t stop being love. As I’ve said before love is my language.

With that being said my Readers, I challenge each of you to think about how you want your legacy to be remembered. Think about your strongest qualities/characteristics that defines you. Love defines me and that’s all that matters to me. Because my love is my legacy that have touched many souls whether intentionally and unintentionally. This is why when we abundant our day and say “May our works and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and others”, we really speak abundantly. Have an amazing day!

Abundance, prosperity, good health and happiness!

Happy Monday! Happy Valentine’s Day to those who celebrate. How was your weekend my readers? Did you watch the Super Bowl or nah? My weekend was amazing with my children. I didn’t bother to watch the game since I’m no longer a fan of the sport.

Today is Valentine’s Day! What plans do you have? Hopefully they will be memorable as you share it with someone you love whether that be your family, children, significant other, friends and/or your pet. Although I don’t celebrate the pagan holiday due to the history behind it, it’s important to discuss what is love. We all want to be loved in a way we want and need to be. Our parents are our first teachers in teaching and displaying what is “love”. Then comes our siblings, families, and so forth. Love is an action word and it makes us feel good.

Sometimes parents unintentionally forget to teach their children how to love themselves. And children usually grow up into their adulthood loving everyone without knowing how to love themselves. As a result of the missed step in child rearing, they tend not to know how they wanted and needed to be love. And this usually cause problems in their intimate relationships.

Loving yourself is an inside job that should remind you of those who loves you. How you love yourself is different from how the next person loves themselves. No love is the same. Again I say “love” is an action word meaning you must act on it from within your heart.

Do you know what love is? How are you loving yourself so it can radiate from within? Love is patient, kind, humble, healthy, peaceful, honest, protector and so much more. Loving yourself is getting to know yourself. It’s loving your flaws and all as you’re loving the person you are. Love is treating yourself out because you deserve it! Love is being honest with yourself and so much more.

So with that being said I challenge you to take the time to love yourself if you haven’t already. Do all the things you wanted to do to show yourself how much you love you! Now don’t go out there being reckless with yourself because that’s not what I’m implying. I’m not responsible for the choices you make to show yourself love. There’s a saying that love is pain. It shouldn’t be, but in some cases love can bring us pain which is only a necessity for our evolution to gain. And this is when we usually peel off toxic layers to get to the vulnerable parts of us to love unconditionally.

Until next time my readers take the time to love you regardless of what you do on this day. It’s a day of love but that’s everyday though. Love is daily and throughout the day. Focus on loving you. If you have children and/or around children a lot teach them to love themselves by asking them what they love about themselves. This will be beneficial for them as they growing into their adulthood.

Sending love and light,
