For Him, For Them & For Myself.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  I am super excited to share that today I released a poetry book entitled, “For Him, For Them & For Myself.”  It is my first published work and it’s available on Amazon! I just wanted to say thank you to each of you.  Those of you who…

I Played Myself.

“As his face filled my mind this morning, I wasn’t filled with regret but rather a sense of gratitude.  I am grateful that I came to the place that I loved myself enough to walk away.  I am grateful that I loved myself enough to speak up, to demand more, to require truth and honesty in my relationships.  I love myself enough to look past the words and check ones’ actions.  Having boundaries, creating a standard is evidence of self-love and I won’t accept the doctrine of anyone who argues otherwise.  Loves,  may you come to the place where you love yourself more than mere company! “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

What If We Got It All Wrong?

“The internet requires men to do so much for relationships. He must text you good morning each morning, he must pay for dates, he must support every idea you ever had in your entire lifetime, he must be willing to be uncomfortable in meeting your family, he must be willing to eat what you eat, he has to workout the way that you workout, and he must be close to perfection – bringing and buying flowers at every single moment. Not one meme said, “Sis, if he’s sharing his dreams and goals with you, he’s a keeper!” Goals and dreams are not really romantic. They are practical.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2020

Social Distancing Sucks.

What would our world look like if we made each day count?  If we took nothing for granted? Would we say we loved each other more?  Would we hug each other a little bit tighter?  Would we hold on a little bit longer? ©Simone Holloway, 2020.

It’s A lot…

Creativity Doesn’t Have a Bedtime.

“Throughout my creative journey, I have found myself the most creative in the wee hours of the morning, before the sun is up.  While the world is sleeping soundly, I am dreaming with my eyes wide open creating and strategizing for the future.  I think this the life of an artist, to do things a little different from their peers – to dream with one’s eyes wide open.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

Forget And Not Slow Down

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Happy Friday!  Do you have a favorite album? One that you can listen to from start to finish every single time?  I have a list of ten favorite albums, all significant, speaking to a particular period of time in my life.  I can remember where I was…

Red Roses

“I remember thinking that to desire thoughtfulness and intentionality in my love relationships was to desire too much.  For the longest, I was in love-relationships that did the bare minimum.  They did not exude any type of effort and was not willing to go the extra mile, yet they professed with confidence that they loved me.  That my dears is not love.  Love is thoughtful and intentional.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

For The Long Haul…

“I have decided that I am in this thing with the Lord forever.  I’ve come to the place where I love things and people but I don’t love anything or anymore than the Lord. I love God more than my career.  I love God more than the boy who has my heart.  I love God more than my friends.  I love God more than my family.  I love God more and at any moment if he asks me to sacrifice it all, I am willing to walk away from it all.  I don’t worship people and things, for the Lord alone is worthy of all my love, trust, and worship. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

Slow Your Roll Sarah!

When Dreams Die…

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Today is a somber day for many, myself included, as we reflect on life in the aftermath of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter, Gianna.  The world is in this state of shock and silence.  Loved ones are holding each other a little closer…
