Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Hello & Happy Thursday! Those who know me know that I am a big advocate for healthy boundaries and the cultivation of loving relationships upon the premise of choice. Like many of you, my schedule is very busy and this sometimes leaves me less available to those…
Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Happy Wednesday! I don’t know about each of you but to be only fifteen days into the year, life is so good. This year feels full of hope and seems to capture a wonder that I believe many of us were missing before. I’m just getting a…
“One of my absolute favorite words is “no”. No, I am not available. No, I would not like to go with you there. No, I am not happy with the treatment given to me. No, I am not satisfied with the level of communication demonstrated. No. No is such a powerful word, it’s a boundary inducing word and it allows us to control our environment. A lot of us have or are currently submitting to abusive behavior because we were or are afraid to say “no.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2020.
“There’s a time for everything! There’s a time to begin and a time to end. There’s a time to be busy and a time to be more available. There’s a time to share wisdom and a time to be silent. There’s a time to move and a time to pause”There’s a time for everything! There’s a time to begin and a time to end. There’s a time to be busy and a time to be more available. There’s a time to share wisdom and a time to be silent. There’s a time to move and a time to pause”©Simone
“Those who pursue do not bank on second chances, they take the first one. Here’s a snippet of wisdom for free: you would probably be in a relationship by now if you took a chance. Whether that relationship is good or bad is up to y’all the parties, but even conflict resolution and growth together comes from taking a shot at hard conversations. We want things without wanting to adjust for them.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“Love is not fully experienced until we are brave enough to enter vulnerability. Love is about taking risks, trying things with no fear of mistake. Love was created to be both given and received fully and to do that we must trust.”©Simone Holloway, 2020
“Do you know what is the number one killer of growth? Excuses. Excuses kill growth.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“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
“Can I encourage you into a new mindset today? Into a new habit or practice? As you enter into this newness, embrace endings! Embrace endings, for at each end is a new beginning.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“Builders are consistent because when we are building something new or remodeling what’s been built before, we are steady and unchanging in nature. Builders don’t decide at the last minute that they are not going to complete their projects. Builders don’t waste money being indecisive. Builders don’t waste time being unsteady and lacking stability in thought. Builders are consistent, showing up each day at the same time ready to get the job done. “©Simone Holloway, 2020
