I Played Myself.

“As his face filled my mind this morning, I wasn’t filled with regret but rather a sense of gratitude.  I am grateful that I came to the place that I loved myself enough to walk away.  I am grateful that I loved myself enough to speak up, to demand more, to require truth and honesty in my relationships.  I love myself enough to look past the words and check ones’ actions.  Having boundaries, creating a standard is evidence of self-love and I won’t accept the doctrine of anyone who argues otherwise.  Loves,  may you come to the place where you love yourself more than mere company! “©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

A Love That Lies.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Happy Tuesday!  Today has been a day of spending time with the Lord. I love it when I get a chance to spend an ample amount of quiet time with Him.  As I was speaking with Him, He started speaking to me about true love.  True love…

It’s Going To Be Different This Time.

“We look at our new friendships through the pain of our old ones.  We measure our new love against the toxic romantic partners of the past.  We look at a similar opportunity and automatically determine its success or failure relative to what we have attempted before.  Lastly, some of us even dream, plan and/or strategize within the limitations of our last failure.  When the Father makes all this new, things change and it’s okay to believe that what you’re seeing is different this time.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
