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.

On The Run.

“So I have a confession to make: when I sense that I am falling in love with someone or that someone is falling for me, I run.”

I Don’t Owe You Anything!

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…

A Clean Break.

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…

Use Your Words.

“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.

Trust A Little More…

“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

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

The Need for Community

“God never intended for you to do life alone. You were created to have a tribe, a group of people who will love you for you.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2019
