Love in September !

Sep 1, 2015

Our deepest sorrows come from the inability to focus on the blessings that lie in front of us. But the reality is that we attract anything that we decide to shift our focus to. If you constantly seek out the negative in life you will start to birth a negative reality for yourself. August was that month for me: doubt, regret, and guilt was the crown over my head and unfortunately it was affecting my relationships. I'm not the most confident person on the block; sometimes it is mainly because I have been making poor eating choices which have taken a toll on my weight and skin. This has discouraged me in all areas of my life which has resulted in me comparing myself to others and criticizing my personal relationships. I want to be the best version of myself, all that God made me to be. I want to love those around me with a Christ-like love, regardless of how challenging it is. I want to embody love-- something that the bible constantly emphasizes and challenges us to do. So, for the month of September I want to make some changes. I will focus on Love: to love God, and specifically, to love myself and allow God to guide me through this process.  I want God to help me see and understand the beauty that He has instilled in me; to be kind and gentle with myself, flaws and all. I want to extend the same love, gentleness and patience to my family and friends also.

Goals for September
Changes in my diet:

  • no carbs(no sugar, bread, rice pasta etc.)
  • drink lots of water( lemon water ;)
  • Exercise 3-4 a week
  • no processed foods/fast foods
  • take vitamins
Face Regimen:
  • Wash face 2x daily
  • use apple cider vinegar as toner
  • turmeric mask  2x a week
  • exfoliate 2x a week
  • steam face 1x a week
  • moisturize with aloe vera mix
On Self
  • spend more time with God (praying, journaling, and reading the bible)
  • be a better sister, daughter, friend and girlfriend by being patient, kind, less irritated and self-less.
  • meet new people
  • be more open minded

If you are reading this and you're finding it difficult to love yourself and others, let September be the month that you seek God to help you extend Grace to yourself and to others. Allow him to reveal the extent of His love to you and through you. I'm praying that you, too, will develop a regimen that will help you grow in your journey.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres |1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 |

for the sake of his Love,
