After "The Storm"

"The Storm" can be anything in your life that is causing you pain. "The Storm" can show up at any time; especially when you think you got everything going right for yourself. "The Storm" can leave a lot of damage behind that can take an extremely long time to repair. There is no possible way to prepare for "The Storm" because it is so unpredictable. "The Storm" has hit my house before! I never saw it coming; one minute I was happy next minute I was sad. "The Storm" blew through so fast knocking everything out of place; shifting things around allowing me to see things from a different prospective. "The Storm" almost tore my whole house down; but thank goodness for my strong foundation which allowed me to ride out "The Storm". I know that "The Storm" will return someday so every day I kneel and I pray. "Lord you have been so good to me and I know there are times when I seem down on my Faith but somehow you are always there for me. Lord I surrender myself to you each and every day. Each morning you allow me to wake up marks another day that I can use to learn how to get closer to you. I try to do things all on my own which makes life seem too hard to go on; but when I open up to you Lord things seem to get much better. I know that "The Storm" will return again one day but with you by my side I know I will win. Lord I ask that you continue to guide me so I can be at my best. I want to feel happy and I want to feel free; thank you, thank you Lord for believing in me. -Amen". After you kneel down and pray please wipe those tears away, hold your head up high because you know the greatest is by your side. I wanted to share this message because I know that at times life seems so overwhelming and tough but if we hang in there and to ride out "The Storm" soon a beautiful day will come. I never thought I would see the day when I would feel pure happiness in my soul because I almost gave up, I almost brought it all too an end because I felt low. It was hard for me because I couldn't understand how a person so smart, so funny , so gifted and so beautiful can feel so helpless, so dumb, so sad, so ugly and so useless. I had to remind myself of all the good things in my life and I had to build a "DREAM" to escape the harsh ways of reality. I dreamed that one day I would be able to help others, I dreamed one day I will be happy, I dreamed one day that I will have a career, I dreamed one day to have a family and I dream one day that I will be the best me I can be. Please don't let "The Storm" destroy your home build a solid foundation so that you can beat "The Storm" so you can enjoy the sunny days to come! -SunShyne B

Be your own friend

So often we look to find comfort in others. Whether it be from their words, touch or maybe just their presence we tend to depend on other people to make us feel better; when the truth of the matter is, if you are not a good friend to yourself then you won't allow anyone else to be a good friend to you. Have you ever  wondered why talking to a friend about your problems didn't help you feel better? You never want to tell your friend that they really didn't help you but deep inside you know its true. I feel that is because sometimes we need to help ourselves! We need to be our own best friend...spend time with yourself; because if you don't like hanging with you most likely your friends won't like hanging with you. Its ok to go see a movie by yourself, go eat breakfast lunch or dinner by yourself, go shopping by yourself its OK to get to know yourself! We have to learn to find comfort in ourselves through spirituality. One day I was all caught up in my feelings and I started to pick up the phone and call a friend to vent but then I stopped myself and decided to pray about my issues and you know what I felt better after. I felt proud because I found strength through prayer and over came my feeling of being sad and emotional by trusting myself. We are a lot stronger than we give ourselves credit for, if we lean on others too often; we loose our inner strength. Don't allow yourself to become weak by loosing your inner strength..ALWAYS remember that you are stronger than you think!

It all started last Sunday when I could feel this anger and irritation building up inside of me. I knew I had been working too much and was physically and mentally drained so I chopped it up to maybe I am tired or maybe its because my period is set to come any day now, but then as I started watching the news and reading different social media post it because very clear that Satan was at work. I know there are a lot of people out there that don't believe in God but I choose too. I know what God is capable of because I have seen what he has done in my life so I know he is POWERFUL!  No matter if you believe or not it is not hard to see that there is definitely a battle going on between Good and Evil and its not anything new; this battle has been going on for years but because of the media we see and hear about it more. I feel that as people no matter what color, ethnic background,  financial background or spiritual background at some point enough is enough. We all have to be tired of seeing our people struggle, die or just out there acting a damn fool. I don't know abouy you all but I am tired of it so I REBUKE SATAN in the name of JESUS Amen!

Don't Be Afraid To Ask For Understanding

I ask for understanding.  Because through understanding I can be a better wife, mother, sister, aunty,  cousin and friend. I ask for understanding because it makes me a better person overall. I ask for understanding because my views on life seem a little unsure and confused at times. I ask for understanding so I won't be so quick to pass judgment on a situation I don't agree with or understand.  I ask for understanding when I read the word because I want to know it in my soul, I ask for understanding when trying to figure out my life because at times I feel so alone. I ask for understanding when someone I love crosses over to the other side and it leaves me feeling hopeless. I ask for understanding when every thing seems to go wrong when I know I am trying my best. I ask for Understanding when my heart seems to grow cold to this unpredictably cruel world. My point is that when you don't know or understand something it is ok to ask for understanding. Understanding is one of the greatest attributes a person can have, because then and only then will the world not seem so small.

I can't stress enough why it is important to grow in your Faith. Sometimes we set goals for ourselves and want to do things but dont know where to start. You may want to start your own business but have bad credit and no money. You may want to go back to school to further your education but its been so long you feel hopeless. Or maybe just maybe you want to start your own Brand but think there is absolutely no way this can happen. Well I am here to tell you that with FAITH anything is possible! 2 years ago I started "Can a Girl Get a Break" I was going through tough times and prayed for God to guide me and my family in the direction he wanted us to go and before I knew it "CGGB" was put in my heart. It started off as a book series then the ideas continued to formulate in my head; one after another now we have an online store where we sell "CGGB" products. I know that none of this would be possible without my Faith because when I didn't have Faith my life was a mess. I wasn't living my life to its full potential and I paid for it; all in all everything we go through is a blessing because we learn from our experiences whether good or bad. So I hope you continue to have Faith in yourself and what you believe in; now go out there and do successful things in life! I tell you; when you achieve your goals it's an amazing feeling that nobody can take from you. So go be your best!

Nightly Thought

Sitting here thinking about how bad and messed up we treat one another; and you know what it is RIDICULOUS and STUPID. The senseless killing, bullying, torturing,  cheating, lying, deceiving and just flat out wrong doings are what is ruining our COUNTRY. We are all considered to be brothers and sisters yet we treat each other horribly over little petty things. I for one am tired of all the negativity. The senseless murders, suicides, rapes, and child abandonment, damn it should be enough for people to want to stand up and act better; but there seems to be no regaurd for our lives any more. We all need the same things to survive yet somehow we think we are better than one another; when the truth of the matter is we are all the same. We all need our hearts to live and love; so embrace your heart and open your heart to your brothers and sisters. If they break your heart; just know that God is the glue that can put it all back together!
