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…
“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.
“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.
“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.
“Today, I believe this is what God is saying to some of you- I don’t need your help.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

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.
