Rules of the No Judgement Zone

#ImBeautyInspired QuoteHave you ever been smitten by someone’s outer beauty? By the clothes they wear? By the designer shoes or handbags? Or their smile? Have you ever judged someone by what you see and not who they are?

Have you ever been mean to someone because they look messy or dirty? Have you passed them by? Did you refuse to speak to them or acknowledge them because of how looked?

I think we’re all guilty of this. It’s easy to think someone is a certain kind of way just because they look good. Or someone is certain kind of way because they look bad. Remember that looks can be deceiving. What you see on the outside is not what you always get in the inside?

The visual of a person’s outer beauty can be alluring but the persona of the of their inner beauty could be awful. Or, the style of their outer beauty can be in a disarray but their disposition could be charming.

Never judge a book by its cover because the story may captivate your heart and your mind. Be nice to everyone regardless of what you see because they may be a diamond in the rough that needs a little polish.

Here are 4 tips to prevent judging someone by what you see.

  1. Smile and say hello
  2. Start a small conversation
  3. Offer to help someone regardless of looks
  4. Find a way to give them a compliment

Have a wonderful week! MUAH

Beauty is Love!

This poem is dedicated to anyone who has witnessed, been victimized and/or survived Domestic Violence!

Love to the Limit

Here is an excerpt from Chapter 1: The Beauty of Strength!

Beauty is being naturally you; baring it all without filters!

Today, I am being naturally me and baring it all without filters! I am sharing a side of me that I don’t share that often because I hope to bring awareness to my readers and I believe that beauty starts from the inside out.

As a child, I watched my father abuse my mother, as a teen I was abused physically by a high school boyfriend and verbally as an adult. Today, I realize that I am beautiful and love is not abusive!

I wrote a poem from the heart in the late 90’s as a dedication to my younger self and any woman who has experienced domestic violence.

This is not just a poem from what I have seen, heard or experienced, it is a poem for anyone who has been affected by domestic violence or someone who is in denial. I pray and hope that this helps someone to seek shelter and help. 

Domestic Violence is a disease. Please understand that love does not hurt. Love is not abusive – verbally, mentally, physically or emotionally. Love is patient and kind. Love is happiness and joy. Love is you!

If you or someone you know suffers from Domestic Violence, please call the hotline 1.800.799.7233 or call the police. Be strong, be a conqueror, believe in you and be free! MUAH

Strength, Courage & Wisdom

#ImBeautyInspired to BelieveI had the pleasure of being a guest on the Johnnie O Gospel Show earlier this week to discuss Domestic Violence.

Here’s the link to the interview.

I hope and pray that my story empowers anyone who’s in a Domestic Violence situation to leave and seek help. Please know that you are never alone and God is always there by your side. Domestic Violence is a disease and if you’re a victim or an abuser, please seek help! Call the hotline 1.800.799.7233 or call the police.

Believe in Your Beauty!

#ImBeautyInspired

One of the most beautiful things that you can show someone is your true self. A lot of times we tend to reveal a fraction of who we really are. We’re afraid that people may not like who they meet. So we only show them a side of us; a representative. The representative is the perfectionist who only shows the good side.

Let your guard down, remove the brick wall and be open to show others the real you with all your imperfections. If they don’t accept you; have the courage to walk away. You are amazing just the way you are and if they can’t accept that…then it’s their loss. Choose you, love you and believe in your inner beauty! Have a wonderful week! MUAH

Beauty is Strength!

Beauty is StrengthDomestic Violence is a subject we tend to shun away from. Today, I am sharing some statistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. I hope to bring awareness through my platform as I am a survivor and I want to help others survive too!

Did you know…

  • Every 9 seconds in the US, a woman assaulted or beaten?
  • 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.
  • 1 in 7 women ad 1 in 18 men have been stalked by an intimate partner within their lifetime
  • Women between the ages of 18 – 24 are most commonly abused by an intimate partner.

Domestic Violence is a disease. Please understand that love does not hurt. Love is not abusive – verbally, mentally, physically or emotionally. Love is patient and kind. Love is happiness and joy. Love is you!

If you or someone you know suffers from Domestic Violence, please call the hotline 1.800.799.7233 or call the police. Be strong, be a conqueror, believe in you and be free! MUAH

I’m a Survivor!

#ImBeautyInspired to Live Free! I'm a Survivor! I was a witness, I was a victim and now I’m a survivor of domestic violence! Once upon a time I suffered through abuse because I didn’t believe in me or understand love. I allowed others to dictate my thoughts and sometimes my actions. I was afraid to speak up and I was afraid to stand up for me, love me and live free.

Today, I’m not a victim; I’m a survivor and a conqueror. I stand strong in who I am and I believe in me! I found the strength, courage and wisdom to not allow anyone to treat me less than what I’m worth. I accept who I am and I love who I’ve become. I chose to live free; free of any type of abuse, dysfunction or pain. I am free of domestic violence; I am free to be me!

Domestic Violence is a disease. Please understand that love does not hurt. Love is not abusive – verbally, mentally, physically or emotionally. Love is patient and kind. Love is happiness and joy. Love is you!

If you or someone you know suffers from Domestic Violence, please call the hotline 1.800.799.7233 or call the police. Be strong, be a conqueror, believe in you and be free! MUAH

#ImBeautyInspired to Dream!

2015-09-28 09.01.22

If you have a dream and do nothing about it then it’s just a wish. Dreams are made to come true if you make a goal, execute a plan and speak them into existence. Don’t go through life wishing for your dream to come true. Take the necessary steps toward making them a reality.
The things we speak into our lives have power. Speak truth, positivity and love over your dreams. Help build the foundation with words to make them come true! Your words will turn into actions and your actions will lead you to success! Keep speaking life into your dreams and have a wonderful week! MUAH

#ImBeautyInspired to Believe in Me!

#ImBeautyInspired to Believe in Me

Everyone has beauty but some lack confidence which leads to a low self-esteem. To understand your beauty one must feel it. You have to understand who you are and what you’re worth. Once you understand it, you have to believe it.

Believe in you so you can completely love you. If you don’t believe and respect you…why should anyone else? Take charge of your inner self, stand strong and believe. Believe in you! Have a wonderful week! MUAH
