Present.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  I live in the future.  I mean not exactly, but I tend to live with the future always in mind.  I am always thinking about tomorrow that sometimes I forget about the beauty of today.  I forget to sit, breath in deeply, and appreciate all that my…

Saint or a Sinner

“I think that is what love does though: it confronts our prejudices and biases.  Love calls us out on our crap and reminds us that there is so much more in life than what we’ve experienced. The more we love others, the more we come to love so many different things.”©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.

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.

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.

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…

There’s A Song for That…

“When was the last time you allowed yourself to just be in the moment?  To be present with yourself, family and favorite playlist?  When was the last time you welcomed joy? “©Simone Holloway, 2020
