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…

Slow Your Roll Sarah!

The V-Club.

Yet, is not shame like that? You will spend your whole life believing in your pursuit or call and the response of the one you love will make you second guess your covenant. What you looked upon with pride, you now look upon with regret. I think that experiences like Iris’ or even mine during my college years have the power to shape us. We can either stick to our conviction, or to win the love of another we can compromise.”©Simone Holloway, 2019

Do You Know What’s Attractive?

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  What’s up family?  Happy Friday!  Ladies and Gents, I’ve been in this really dope space where I’ve returned to the dating market.  Let’s just say that dating in 2019 is interesting, to say the least.  What I’ve learned in my short time back on the market is…

In Year Three, I Should Have Left.

“Why do we stay in awful situations?  This is the question that I woke up pondering.  Why do we stay with emotionally, mentally and physically abusive people? Why do we submit ourselves to toxic unhealthy church environments? Why do we settle into office cultures that break our spirits?  Why do we hold onto friends that don’t have our best interest at heart?  Why do we stay even when God gives us a way out, time and time again?  Why?!?!?!” ©Simone Holloway, 2019

The Holding Cell

” I hate waiting in traffic. I hate waiting in long lines.  I hate waiting for the light to change.  I don’t like to wait.  Once I create a schedule, I want it to run smoothly free of delay.  Man, I wish God felt the same way about waiting as I do, but he doesn’t.  In fact, He encourages that we have periods of waiting- moments where we sit and wait for the promise. ” ©Simone Holloway, 2019

On The Run

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  If we’re honest, I’ve been in this amazing yet crazy place with God.  For the past few months, I’ve felt like David on the run, hiding in caves, seeking safety/shelter.  Can you imagine, you’re living what you deem to be your best life when transition hits?  What…

No Shame

Y’all, I have no idea what this life of no shame will bring but I’m excited.  I feel free, like in the depths of my soul.  I feel like I can conquer the world.  I feel strong and full of life in the inner chambers of my heart.  I feel brave.  It takes bravery to move into the unknown out of fear into love, out of being guarded to being open, out of holding things into being extremely honest.  I am okay with where I am and that is freedom all in itself.  I’ve embraced the truth about me and I am unashamed.  I’ve embraced my triumphs and my failures, every ounce of my brokenness and the places where I am whole, all of my strengths and all of my weaknesses.  I’m okay with every ounce of me and I am enough because I am in Him.  I’m literally smiling as I type this article, overjoyed at the process He is doing in my heart.  ©Simone Holloway, 2019
