For Him, For Them & For Myself.

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…

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.

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”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

Second Chances Are Not Guaranteed.

“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.

What Do I Want?

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Happy Thursday! I have come to the realization that I have become a master at hiding my desires.  I have become so accustomed to sacrificing my desires in the pursuit of my dream.  When you are the oldest sibling and you cannot get what you want all…
