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.

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.

Let It End.

“Can I encourage you into a new mindset today?  Into a new habit or practice?  As you enter into this newness, embrace endings! Embrace endings, for at each end is a new beginning.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

Builders Are Consistent

“Builders are consistent because when we are building something new or remodeling what’s been built before, we are steady and unchanging in nature.  Builders don’t decide at the last minute that they are not going to complete their projects.  Builders don’t waste money being indecisive.  Builders don’t waste time being unsteady and lacking stability in thought.  Builders are consistent, showing up each day at the same time ready to get the job done. “©Simone Holloway, 2020

It’s Time!

“Maybe the Father has not given us what we have been asking for because we are not mature enough. Like a great parent, He will wait until we grow up to release certain things to us.”©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

Firing My SWAT Team.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  I hope you all are having a great evening.  Here’s a thought: What would your life look like if you were less guarded?  I used to ask myself this question all the time.  I used to imagine a life of pain, abuse, and emotional wounds. This could…

the switch up.

“I was no longer living for church politics or for people who did not create me to accept me, I was accepted already. I attended dances, went to mixers, traveled all over the country for conferences, and went on day trips- I was having the time of my life! I became free.”©Simone Holloway, 2019
